Sorry about the delay!
Mail Bombs will be a bit abbreviated today…hope you understand!
First up, Claudine writes, “I‘m sure you’re going to get several e-mails about J-Lo’s white Gucci form fitted dress...”
“… A more affordable option would be perfect for me at my wedding rehearsal dinner. Can you help?“

1. Black Halo Strapless Bustier Dress, $325. 2. David Meister Strapless Dress, $160. 3.Corey Lynn Calter Michelle Sweetheart Dress, $159.
In a male Mail Bomb, Terrence says, “I was wondering if you could tell me where to get this jacket Common is wearingâ€¦”“...if there is a lower cost option thatâ€™d be good too… but Iâ€™m digging the sleeves & over all look. Thanx!“
