An . . . interesting experience
By KaetleBugg on 6/22/2007
I went here with my sister to buy a birthday gift. I saw a little blue purse that the birthday girl would've loved, so I asked the clerk how much. (Note: when we came in, the door was locked and we had to ring the bell. It was intimidating.) The clerk said it was $75. I was on an extremely tight budget, $30. My sister and I exchanged glances that clearly said, "let's go," and I said, "We-elll . . . "The clerk saw us and said, "How much ya got?" I told him and he said, "Ok, I'll sell it to you." So, all in all, I was pleased with the purchase but the atmosphere was intimidating and it made me question the worth of the purchase. I might go back, but probably not.

I went into Allan and Suzi's shop a few days ago and was amazed. Even though the beautiful clothes were not displayed as well as they could have been, not a problem with a little patience and a good eye. If you sift though the many items on the racks, you could find amazing pieces like I did. They have plenty of Azzedine Alaia, Balenciaga, Dior, Chanel, YSL, etc. I found a green Missoni sweater (priced for 300, got it for 300), a D&G jean dress (got it for free with the Missoni sweater!!!), a brand new Kate Spade purse (priced for 250, got it for 100), and a silver Italian made motorcycle jacket (marked 300ish and got it for 200). Amazing deals, you dont have to just buy it for the price on the tag. Beautiful shoes and couture, couture, couture!! I tried on a vintage old Hollywood Christian Dior dress - probably turned in for consignment by an Oscar winner....who knows??!! Allan is especially tight. With such an amazing selection and eye for fashion, not a big surprise hes been in business 20 years. I highly recommend this store.

not knowing what to expect when walking into this shop I had the best time. The owner Allan took his time with me and was very playful. I spent an hour trying things on and having a great time. The clothes were fun. I needed to find a dress and Allan was glad to help. I would definitely return to this store.
