where to buy Clements Ribero

I re-discovered Kirna Zabete when searching the web for stores to buy the designs of Clements Ribeiro. The store thoughtfully offers local and independent designer pieces on the rack as well, for those of us who will spend twice the medium on honest artistic talent (while keeping a few strong pieces in the wardrobe and wisely making the rest from scratch) One designer piece will keep a broke fashion lover happy for weeks! Pick up your shoes from Otto Tootsie Plohound right in the neighborhood(and check out Joseph Debach-Roma to access stunning atelier status shoes for women AND men...Similar boutiques would include Hedra Prue, (although the buying experience is more personal at HPrue-the service being more chic than sweet at KZabete)Go for it-but start sketching on the train -your portfolio may come in handy (as well as your resume)tee hee.

I love this store. Although the selection is not big, you can always manage to find something unexpected that you simply have to have. Great shopping place, just not if you're on a tight budget!

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.
