Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
I’m not really set on getting married, but damn, is it easy for me to get sucked into a wedding dress k-hole. If I were to hitched, would I wear something long and ethereal or short and modern? Would I be partial to a fastener or a more traditional veil? I just don’t know!!! I do know that the idea of spending a bucketload of money on a dress I’ll wear once is absurd to me, which is why I love it when mid-level brands like, say, J.

The latest accessible brand to enter the bridal market? Girly retailer Anthropologie in conjunction with their sister chain, Urban Outfitters. The brand’s first bridal collection, called BLHDN, debuts online on, sigh, February 14th via BHLDN.com, with dresses ranging in price from $1000 to $4000. Keep clicking to see the ultra girly collection and tell us what you think — would you walk down the aisle in any of these gowns or do you think Anthropologie/Urban should stick to everyday wear?

Some people come to New York City for work. Some people come to New York City for school. Some people are born in New York City and never end up leaving. But whatever your reason for being here, you probably ended up staying, in part, for one reason: options. On any given night there are thousands of different activities you could be doing and hundreds of them are free. If you don’t like your apartment, you can find a dozen illegal sublets on Craigslist in two hours. Want to gawk at a celebrity drinking her morning latte? Craving pizza handmade by an Italian grandpa who speaks no English? Need pot delivered to your apartment ASAP? Check, check and check. Hell, you’ll even find
