MIDTOWN—Wedding gown stores usually only stock dresses in size six or eight. If you're smaller than that, you try on your dress with the help of giant industrial butterfly clips; if you're bigger than that, you're kind of screwed. To the rescue: eDressMe's plus-sized bridal trunk show, taking place this Friday and Saturday in the penthouse at 325 W. 38th Street. From 10am to 5pm on March 20th and 21st, label Bara Luxe will be showing their gowns, all size 16 and up and all marked down 20%. Call (212) 239-6505 to make an appointment. [Racked Inbox]
SOHO—Home furnishings store Z Gallerie, at 443 Broadway between Grand and Mercer, has shuttered. Z is a fairly big chain, but that location was the only one in New York State. [Racked Inbox]
