Toot our horn

Monday, December 30th, 2013

We just received a pleasant email from our customer, Lisa Eisen. It reads;

“I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to the store!  My sister-in-law and I came in today to begin her search for her wedding dress… and walked out an hour later with her dress in hand.  We had an absolutely fabulous experience.  Your selection is amazing, the girl working today was absolutely wonderful, and the whole vibe of the experience was exactly what we were looking for.  The first dress she tried on was a hit.  I will definitely be back when it comes time to my big day… perhaps to find something for myself for my brother’s wedding as well.  So thank you again!”

Hopefully we will get a snap of the dress after sis-in-law’s big day! We will keep you all posted.

This golden chartreuse mixed window is really getting us into the holiday spirit.  The centre coat is warm and reversible with a golden lurex print on one side and soft black sheared beaver on the other. How chic would it look paired with long black leather gloves? We think very!
