This is the crazy shop on the corner of Louisiana and Magazine that always has the fun mannequins dressed outside blowing in the wind. I used to assume it was a resale boutique....but after my first trip there I was very surprised to learn that it isn't at all. I've been getting my formals for the Endymion ball here for the past 5 years!
All of the clothing is new, and if you don't want the one on the rack you can order it and it only takes a few days to come in. This store has eveyrthing from jeans to ball gowns. Great ready to wear dresses and cocktail dresses, and they specialize in formalwear. All of the coktail dresses and formalwear can be ordered in different sizes and colors, and they also offer alterations at an extra charge if you need any tweeking.
The thing that really makes this store unique is all of the beautiful formal dresses for Mardi Gras balls and proms that will knock your socks off! One of the few places in the city to carry Jovani and Sherri Hill- my two favorite designers! I get so tired of seeing the same dresses every year at the ball about a hundred times. Thats because everyone shops at Dillards or saks...etc. They have stand out from the crowd dresses in ALL shapes and sizes. Sizes 00-32
Another stand out about this shop is the staff. The staff is always friendly, fun, and helpful. If you want help fidning the perfect dress, they will pull multiple styles for you and offer many suggestions. I can't tell you how many times I have been in that store and they have convinced me to try on dresses without hanger appeal....... and they always seem to be right! You never know until you try them on!
Sometimes you have to do a bit of digging through the racks..... or simply ask for help. But either way you will have a blast. Totally fun.
TIP: Ask for Amanda or Dawn. One of the two of them is usually always there and they KNOW their stuff. Maybe bring them a cocktail. LOL just kidding.
