The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe Just Went Wedding Dress Shopping

First he said yes to her rose; now she's saying yes to the dress! (Finally, right?) The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe just spent the day trying on wedding dresses, and after a two-year engagement, it's about time! Do you know how long we've been waiting for another Bachelor Nation wedding special, Kaitlyn?!

In case you need a Bachelorette refresher and don't have time to binge watch, on the season 19 finale of the reality franchise, the former bachelorette chose Shawn Booth as the winner and the pair got engaged (with a Neil Lane engagement ring, of course) right then and there.

Since then, the couple has been slow to plan their big day—or at least divulge the details. But now, it seems that it's full steam ahead as Bristowe just went wedding dress shopping…with one of our favorite bridal designers, no less!

“I had a very long day today, but in the best way possible," Bristowe told her fans in a video on her Instagram story Monday night. As it turns out, that long day was spent with bridal designer Hayley Paige, trying on bridal gowns. “I tried on wedding dresses all day. Exciting stuff,” she continued, according to People. That's for sure! In a snap posted earlier to Bristowe's story, the bride-to-be can be seen at what looks like the famed designer's showroom, surrounded by wedding dresses and sketches.

Later in another video on the 'Gram, Bristowe filmed herself leaving the bridal showroom. "Okay, that is a wrap. I’m still in white,” she said, revealing her post-shopping outfit: a white minidress with a plunging neckline. Way to keep with the theme of the day, girl!

With this major wedding to-do (hopefully) checked off the bride's list, this could mean that she and her fiancé will be tying the knot soon. We'll be checking our mailbox for an invite!Read more at:wedding dresses | wedding dress styles

Nordstrom Puts A Charitable Spin On Sustainable Fashion This Fall

The US department store is partnering with 'Give Back Box,' to allow customers to donate their old or unwanted clothes and accessories to local nonprofit organizations, via mail. The service, which will be completely free for shoppers, works by encouraging Nordstrom online customers to save the boxes their order is delivered in, and fill it with any clothing, shoes, accessories or small household items they would like to donate.

Nordstrom will begin testing the concept in its six western Washington stores, with donated items being directed to Seattle Goodwill and Goodwill of Olympics and Rainier Region to help fund community programs such as job training or education initiatives.

"Our customers have told us they want to be able to clean out their closets in a more environmentally-friendly way," said Erik Nordstrom, co-president of Nordstrom. "By extending the life of their used items, and encouraging them to reuse the box from their recent Nordstrom order, we're trying to make it easy and convenient to help reduce waste while also being able to support local nonprofit organizations."

The past few years have seen several retailers address the question of how to pair fast fashion with a sustainable attitude towards clothing consumption. One of the best known labels addressing the issue is Swedish retailer H&M, which launched its textile recycling scheme back in 2013, encouraging shoppers to donate old clothing of any brand in return for an in-store discount. The company has created several 'Close the Loop' collections created from recycled cotton off the back of the concept.

Other initiatives include Cotton Incorporated's annual ‘Blue Jeans Go Green' denim recycling program, which asks shoppers to donate old jeans for a discount on brand items such as Rag & Bone pieces, and ocean debris recycler Parley for the Oceans' regular fashion collaborations with brands such as G-star and Stella McCartney, working recycled plastic into new fashion pieces.Read more at:bridesmaid dresses online | wedding dresses melbourne

Opelika woman looks to donate wedding dresses

For brides, their ideal wedding dress has been in their minds since they were young. They want the dress that gives them the fairy tale wedding of their dreams.

For Amber White, her dress was all that she wanted. It gave her the fairy tale wedding that she dreamed of. However, that dress has been sitting in her closet for the past seven years. Last week, before Hurricane Irma hit, she saw woke up and saw the dress in her closet and told her husband that she wanted to donate it to victims of Hurricane Harvey.

After Irma hit, she posted to Facebook about donating her wedding dress to the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Since then, blog sites have shared her post and hundreds of women have come forward wanting to help.

“It was one of the most important days of my life,” White said. “It’s the day where you commit to your significant other. As a little girl, it’s the day you look forward to your entire life. You picture that fairy tale wedding, and that’s what it was for me. When I laid eyes on this dress, I knew it was the dress. I wanted to feel like a princess. I could not imagine having the perfect dress, just to come back and see it ruined. Some women plan for years and years about the perfect day. They have their dress picked out months and years ahead just for one day and to have it completely stripped from them, I couldn’t even imagine.”

Alisia Adams saw White’s post Tuesday night, and wanted to help right away. She donated a bridesmaids dress to the cause.

“A lot of people have lost everything,” Adams said. “They literally have nothing to their name anymore. I guess the least I could do is give them a dress that they spent so much money on, and now it’s gone in a second.”

Jessica Branan donated a bridesmaids dress and two flower girl dresses and couldn’t help but think of the roles being reversed.

“It would mean everything for someone to do that,” Branan said. “You lose so much, and you spend so much on something and for it to be gone, that’s pretty hard.”

White said she has been amazed by all of the traction her post has gotten, but says it is nothing compared to what others have sacrificed after the hurricanes.

“I can’t physically go to Texas or Florida and help with the relief, but if me giving this up means a lot to people, then absolutely,” White said.

White said there is one catch to receiving one of the donated dresses. She asks that recipients pass their dress onto another bride who is in need.Read more at:SheinDressAU | bridesmaid dresses
