For a high taste of unique beauty, it’s hard to beat Sarah Seven. Her bridal and ready wear fashions make a statement that say original loud and clear. Visiting her flagship store in NE PDX is like stepping into a time capsule when fabric mattered and detail reigned supreme. Known for her vintage inspired designs, Sarah Seven offers one-of-a-kind gowns as well as select favorites in her permanent collection. And her short dress creations offer lots of options for bridesmaids (I’m drawn to Mrs. Black from the Fall 2012 collection). Viewing is by appointment only or you can see her international collection online at Sarah Seven.
