It is always nice to find a hip New York boutique where you are greeted by a genuine smile! The selection is refreshing and different for the style-less Upper West side. Or maybe it is the way it is styled that makes a t-shirt and jeans so new. It is rare to find neighborhood shop that sells great things and has been around for a while. What other place can you buy new, and donate your old to the local women's shelter, or maybe a haiti relief drive? Got to respect that!

Not too shabby

I went to CPW last week and I was pleased with what they had...overall a pretty nice place. However I would have liked to see more special pieces. What I mean is that there is a wide selection of denim and a wide selection of $50 and up tee shirts, but there was nothing that would bring me back to the store. You could go anywhere and get what they have there. It felt very impersonal to me...but I know people who really like the store (I think more for the location that is close to where they live then for what they sell) so I guess maybe I would give them an overall score of 3, but I would also say...give it a try because maybe you will like it!

The most snooty staff in town

This boutique was stocked full of overpriced t-shirts and jeans that were not worth the trip at all. I would absolutely not recommend going there...the staff is snooty and they look you up and down when you get there because they probably think that they are better than you. I particularly disliked one of the sales girls who will go unmentioned. The space is cramped and stuffy and the quality of the items while they are designer labels, are not the labels that impressed me at all. The only items of merit that they do carry are the Rodnik products and you can easily get those at better boutiques. Don't bother going to this store.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
