I made my first purchase at Filene's and I have to say I am completely satisfied. I was very apprehensive at the first sight when I walked in because it looked a HOT ASS MESS!! However I was surprised to fine a nice designer coat and sweater. I think they are much higher than Marshall's and tj maxx but it was well worth the money spent. I probably would not go in there at Xmas time though because I can only imagine what it would look like.
I do tend to be a label connoisseur at times however a bargain is a bargain and well...Nordstrom Rack has it. The one thing that always stands out to me here is their purse and shoe selection. The shoe department accommodates sizes up to a 13 for women. I always have a problem trying to find shoes that are size 10 or 11 because they run out often. I found Coach Boots for 110.00 regular price would have been 250.00 easy. I cant really comment on the clothes because being a big girl its hard to find clothes that look and feel good anywhere. They have a small home section but If you like Egyptian cotton towels and sheets you will like some of the items that they have and the prices are always pretty descent. The staff is not really helpful so hopefully you know what you want without having to ask them because they either don't speak English or just plain rude.
I frequent this Nine West often. I love them they always have large sizes. Its really small but if you come after 5pm then you only get one or two people in there at a time. The staff is friendly and they actually wear the shoes so they can tell you how they feel and recommend others to you.
I use to come here all the time when I worked downtown but since I was in the area I figured I would drop by my favorite Coach store. As usual the staff is so nice. I was looking for a birthday present for a friend and was able to find the cutest little coin purse for going out for a night on the town. I cant wait to go back and shop for myself. This store is never crowded and is a refreshing change from the Michigan Ave store.
If you are looking for nice things for your home well this is the place to go. Inexpensive and one of the most organized and clean Marshalls/Homegoods I have been to. The people were so nice and helpful. Only drawback is the parking. Go when they first open to get a good park.
Decided to give DSW another shot and boy oh boy Im glad I did. I dont know if they got a shipment in or what but I was able to find some hearty deals and luck up on a cool Ed Hardy purse for more than half of its original price. Another star added!!!!!!! Indeed!!!!
I went to A'Gaci because I was desperately looking for a dress to a party after hitting up Contempo, Forever 21, and failing miserably. The staff was very helpful and I actually found a cute dress that was super cheap. I will definitely check them out again.
Figure I would not brave the Schaumburg Ikea on a weekend so I decided to take a trip there on a Wednesday and to my surprise it was not crowded and I was able to get in and out in less than an hour. What makes the trip oh so special is hot dogs for 50 cent...mmm mmm good.
Beautiful store...heck anything is beautiful if its filled with Marc Jacobs Paraphernalia. After getting my pants leg completely soaked in the rain last night I figured it was about high time I mozy on over to MJ for some much needed and talked about rain boots.(Thanks to Chris L's Review) I must have been very focused on getting in an out because I didn't have any problem with the staff being snooty. My new Wellington's are HOT! Ocean Blue baby!! I cant wait for the rain. I'm ready for it and I will be stylin and profilin.
Do I need some new shoes? Hell to the Naw as Whitney H would say but I wanted them and they had them on sale. I stepped in to Steve Madden with the intention of window shopping however when the two staff girls said we have shoes for 19.99 my credit card started burning in my purse and I just had to take it out and use it. My mom and I walked away with some cute shoes to end the summer with just nicely.
The bargains are the best. I have read the other reviews about the store being organized and I guess they were having a off day because the store was a mess. The staff was not very helpful actually I felt like everyone had been picked up by a short bus that morning. The upside of it all... I was able to find male Armani bracelet for my friends birthday and two Kathy Van Zeeland purses for less than 80.00 for my grandmothers birthday!
I was in DESPERATE need of new boob holders!!! I have lost a lot of weight so my bras were really just too big. My friend stage a B. I.
Boob Intervention and told me about Intimacy's. I said lets do it!!! I worked with Ruth and she was amazing. She didn't use a measuring tape she took a look at me, went and got some bras that would match my lifestyle, and my body. The bras were beautiful and not cheap I might add. Quality cost ladies!!!! I walked out with some new bras, less strain on my back and shoulders, and a new pep in my step! I loved this place because it was one of the most empowering experiences I have ever had. I know you are thinking its just buying bras...but it was so much more than that!!!
Now I know I gave them 4 stars however I had deleted my review before after talking to the owner and going back in to allow them to redeem themselves HOWEVER!!!! I have to say I was highly insulted and disappointed just as I was the very first time I went into Selections. I walk in with my bag of clothes and the lady by the name of Connie (Only reason I know her name is because I have been in several times before) looks at me and says "yes" I said "I have some clothes and purses I would like to see if you can sell for me"
her response.."They have to be high end designer" I said uhhh OK I have Juicy Couture Purses, Jogging Suits, and a few Coach purses" Her Response.." We take only past season" and proceeds to walk past me and helps someone that walked in the door basically ignoring me. I really would have thought she would have looked at the items before she based her opinion on the sheer thought that my items were not worthy enough to go on sale in her shop nor even be looked at to determine if that's the case. I will NEVER set foot in Selections again!!! I gave them a chance and I love the clothes but the customer service is really horrible. This will be one review I will not delete.
A friend said...You want something trendy? Cheap? Yep I do!! Try Dots!
Uh Dots...was my response.
However since I have been working out and dieting I have been dropping weight super fast and don't want to buy really expensive stuff until I am at my goal. Enough about me!!!
So I drive over to Dots and to my surprise the girls were very nice and helpful. I was able to pick out a couple of items and I have to say I think I will be back. I am sure I will not be able to dry any of these things because they may fall apart but who cares right now they look good!!!
OMG I had another amazing experience today at Takara's. I got to actually meet Takara and purchase a fabulous dress for a party! She was very nice and the warmth that she showed my friend and I was wonderful. I love this place! I wish I had the money to shop in here all the time but just knowing I can walk in at anytime and find wonderful timeless pieces is a beautiful thing.
