Be Mine … Forever

For her second bridal collection, Alberta Ferretti looked to the red carpet for inspiration. The Forever Bridal Collection contains 13 gowns, all named after starlets past and present. There’s something for just about any bride, whether you’re the dramatic Scarlett [Johansson], the elegant Claudia [Schiffer] or the sexy Michelle [Pfeiffer]. The collection, Ferretti says, marks a return to detail and tailoring. Each gown takes between 30 and 80 hours to create, a testament to the high-end fabric choices, beading and draping. There are also options for less-traditional brides, including the short Mia dress and the bohemian-inspired Nicole. AlbertaFerretti.com.

Seven beauty bargains

By Whitney Urichuk

Everyone loves the thrill of saving a penny or two. Here are a few of my picks for good alternatives to high-priced beauty products: Suave dry shampoo. Back in the day, baby powder was known as the quick fix to tame oily hair. Today, a product on the market called dry shampoo does just that; however, most are expensive and don’t go very far. Problem solved! Suave has a brand (sold at Target) that not only holds its own with the salon brands but has an amazing floral scent. At only $3, I suggest you stock up.
