"On average, an off-the-rack dress will cost around $1500. By contrast, the couture gown can be around $2500 to $4000, or even more for some gowns.
...the differences between the two are as night and day. Essentially, off-the-rack is ordinary; couture is extraordinary. Off-the-rack is standard; couture is superb. Off-the-rack is boring; couture is glamorous. The off-the-rack dress is a purchase; the couture gown is an experience"

Who would have thought that the difference between night and day was $1000 and rising. Relax, miss boynton isn't thinking nuptial, she simply stumbled upon these shades for the wedding party (from a link at J walk) and was thinking it would be curious to spend $toomuchmoney and $nosocialconscience on a $one-use dress and then accessorise it with novelty shades which might possibly be the pick of the $jumpedupshutterbug's glossy album that $getsboringtolookat after a while? Apologies for the boynton's own brand $bahhumbug glasses...

How come those shades only come in packs of 6?

mcb, not sure how current the couture-spiel is, if anything I thought those prices seemed low?

and Nora - 6 = 2 for the bridesmaids in your first wedding, 2 for the bridesmaids in your second, which leaves one pair of shadesfor the wacky old matron of honour in your third - is that the way it goes? ;)
