Ah, the burning question of wedding, gala, homecoming, or prom season: where can I buy an evening gown? Or better yet, where can I buy an evening gown, on a budget?
Camille La Vie has just opened at Sawgrass Mills and can fill that glitzy void. When you walk in, you may initially recognize these dresses from a different part of the mall. That's because the store was originally known as Group USA, only they decided to relocate to Avenue 4 and open as Camille La Vie. Group USA is the parent company to Camille La Vie.
Here you'll be able to find prom dresses, homecoming dresses, cocktail dresses, and quinceañera dresses. Plus, it's the second Camille La Vie store in Florida (there are six) to contain a bridal department, where you'll find wedding, mother of the bride, and bridesmaid dresses. Special occasion dresses range from $60 to $350, and bridal gowns range from $350 to $1000.
