Sarah Seven’s Spring 2011 Bridal Collection

Romantic. Simple. Feminine.  Those are the three words I would choose to describe the Spring 2011 Line of wedding dresses from Portland, Oregon designer, Sarah Seven.  Her website describes her bridal collection as “a rare glimpse into the perfected and intricate arrangement of blossoming ruffles, delicate fabrics, and flowing layers” – the perfect dress for any bride looking to capture raw romance on her wedding day.  Each dress is made to order and is oh so affordable, with the most expensive breaking the bank at $3200.  But don’t take my word for it…see for yourself…

Rent the Runway for Your Next Event

As a woman, I find the hardest part of getting ready for a night on the town is picking out the outfit.  After all, there’s a science to looking effortlessly beautiful in a look that only you will be wearing.  Well, the process may have gotten a hell of a lot easier thanks to Rent the Runway (RTR), a NY based online shopping experience started by Harvard Business School students, Jennifer Hyman and Jennifer Fleis, who according to their Backstory, found themselves faced with the same challenge of finding something to wear.
