            I think any product that is routinely put on sale for hundreds less than the retail price is suspect.  If something is fairly priced to begin with, there isn't as much room for markdown, without a loss of profit.  I'm just happy I'm going for a dress not meant as a wedding dress.  It's saving me a ton!

                Thanks, Matt! We are over the moon with excitement to have del Sol photographers! I can tell you, after months of stalking your slideshows, my dress is far from what you're used to seeing! :cool:
