I'm still searching for the perfect Mara Hoffman piece to own, but I'm not sure I want to schlep out to Williamsburg to find it.

Don't get excited, I'm still not engaged or looking for dresses. This just seemed like a good deal for anyone out there who is. There might be dresses for galas or special occasions that aren't bridal, as well.
