I came into this place specifically looking for another black dress. My friend and I specifically went to Brooklyn because I was hoping to find something original and that no other girl would have in her closet. We were greeted warmly by the only associate in the store, where she spent at least an hour with me helping me trying on several dresses. She made me try on this violet dress where you can alternate the wraparound ties in several ways. I obviously am not adept in putting this dress together so she showed me how to wrap around the ties so I would have a strapless dress. Another alternate was wrapping it around one shoulder if I didn't want it strapless and then the two other options were the halter style. Depending on how thick you want the band, your shoulders or neckline can be accentuated. It was a cool dress but not really my style and she was really nice about it so she recommended this gray dress that you have to strategically place so it can "drape" on your body. It came with a cute belt but I was too small for the outfit that it didn't hang well. We went through several of the black dresses but a lot of them were racy which wasn't really the style I was looking for. In the end, I looked over some cool accessories and I really liked their wide belts but opted for a gold cuff which I know would go great with a black dress. I definitely want to come back and see what they have in store in the spring.
