My 12 year old daughter wanted a pair of Dulce Vita - silver bow, ballet schools. They were $132 but it was her birthday. Three weeks ago we had to bring them to the shoemaker ($35). Today we went to get a new pair hoping for some consideration. We were told-"What doyou expect they are junk. Call the manufacturer." After wegot home my daughter told me that they were making funof us. I called back and spoke to the store manager., Dana Ford. She said - "Sorry, I can't do anything for you.: I guess it's to much to expect decent ballet shoes for $130. I just wished they had said - what do you expect before they sold them to us.

I recommend the Soho location. The staffs are helpful and nice, but they are not pushy. Very cute casual clothing, underwear, swimwear, accessories... They have everything girlish and cute.

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.
