“i said yes to the dress”

I thought I knew all about Kleinfeld from years of watching TLC’s popular series Say Yes to the Dress. That is, until I got engaged and booked an appointment at the iconic bridal boutique, becoming one of the 19,000 brides a year who pass through its doors.

travel tricks

EXECUTIVE EDITOR KEEP HOTEL CURTAINS SHUT Even when you close the drapes, there’s always somehow a sliver of light. Use a pants/skirt hanger to clip them all the way closed. DE-STINK CLOTHES Toss an unwrapped hotel bar soap into your dirty-laundry bag to tame bad odors until you get home. QUARANTINE YOUR SHOES Pack them in the freebie shower cap to keep icky soles from touching everything else in your suitcase.
