WHAT SIZES DO YOU HAVE?

In general, we've covered all sizes we could (0-24; XXS-2XL), many styles, and appropriate dresses and gowns for all ages from teen & up! We just had in a gorgeous 74-year-old woman (also a fabulous singer-- she sang us some Edith Piaf while shopping!), who will be performing at the McCallum theatre in April!

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE I AM IN DESIGNER CLOTHING?

Great question. Sizing for designer clothing is different from say shopping at Macy's, where you generally will find that sizes are somewhat consistent, and generally match what you perceive as your dress size. However, be prepared to view clothing that is also two sizes up and two sizes. One designer's size 2, is another's 6. Vintage Clothing... the sizing back in the 50s, 60s, and 70s was quite different from today's sizing. So, it's best to come try on the pieces, or go strictly by the given measurements.

It is important to bring your undergarments that you would be wearing with the piece (i.e., firming garments such as full-body w/bra Spanx, a supportive bra, a supportive strapless bra, bra inserts (padding), and a full slip (in case the dress is not lined).

WHAT ABOUT US CURVY GIRLS?

We've got ya covered ladies! We hand-picked these dresses, and especially searched for larger sized gowns and dresses. It unfortunately is more difficult to find designer dresses in larger sizes, because the fashion industry has not embraced the idea that not everyone is a size 2.

I DON'T LIKE TO SHOW MY ARMS, SO I AVOID SLEEVELESS DRESSES. ANY IDEAS?

Yes! It's a common concern. Some of the dresses come with their own jackets, covers, shawls or boleros. But here's the workaround.. You can find a variety of boleros on amazon.com! Get several base colors for your wardrobe, and matching colors for your new gown.

I CAN'T GO STRAPLESS BECAUSE I WAS BLESSED WITH BOUNTIFUL BUST. ANY IDEAS?

Yep! Aside from an industrial strapless bra, and a full body Spanx (without straps), our workaround if you happen to love a dress that happens to be strapless, is to have a seamstress add straps. If you're very skilled at sewing you can even attempt this yourself. You can also embellish them with hand-sewn beads, sequins or embroidery. If you're not crafty in that way, any skilled and talented professional seamstress should be able to make these adjustments for you. Having a seamstress color match, choose the right fabric and add short sleeves or lace sleeves is another option-- but they must be skilled, and be


We also have ONE GORGEOUS RED authenticated VALENTINO RUNWAY DRESS from the 2012 runway collection! ONLY ONE! Size 6. Gorgeous! NWT! Perfect for making your entrance at an upcoming Oscar's parties (Feb. 26th!), an El Paseo Fashion Week event or party (March 18-25), Charity Galas, this year's Holiday Season (2017) events and parties, or even the Palm Springs International Film Festival (Jan. 2018).

Stand out from the celebrities! Even perfect for a romantic and incredibly elegant night out. It is spendy, despite our relatively low price, but you will be the center of attention! And, aren't you worth the finer things in life? We think so!

Make a special appointment to come in and try this gown on. We are screening fittings so that this dress is not tried on more than one or two times. So far, everyone gushes when they see this dress, but few fit the size 6 bill! Will you be the Cinderella who slips into this gown for a magical night?


WHERE CAN I WEAR MY NEW GOWN?

Fashion Week El Paseo (March 18-25) Events & Parties, Palm Desert Food & Wine (March 24-26), McCallum's Open Call Theatre Event (Mid-April), Charity Galas, Industry Events, Cocktail Parties, Quinceaneara, Prom, Homecoming, Formal Events, the 2017 Holiday Season (Holiday Parties to New Year's Eve!) & next year's Palm Springs International Film Festival (January 2018); And any other parties, galas, theatre, weddings, formals, or events you're attending this year.

TERMS:

Due to the nature of this short-term event, ALL SALES ARE FINAL. This means that all items are sold as-is. There are no returns, no refunds, no online store or storefront credits or exchanges, etc..

PROFESSIONAL CLEANING DISCOUNT VOUCHER AVAILABLE:

It's recommended that all garments are professionally cleaned (either dry or spot or as directed) prior to wearing. Local customers will receive a discount voucher for our partnered professional cleaner, “oneclick cleaners”. They are well versed in cleaning designer garments, vintage garments, heavily beaded/sequined dresses & dresses, silk, as well as wedding gowns.

SEAMSTRESS SERVICES AVAILABLE:

Get your gown prepped early! We've partnered with "oneclick cleaners", who uses a few local seamstresses who handle not just basic fixes and repairs, but also alterations and intricate repairs of beads and sequin threads. They know how to re-bead, re-sequin, repair pulled threads.. They will even be able to add a tulle lining to lengthen the dress (a very popular look now), or a silk lining. Many gowns come with their own matching supply of extra beads and sequins. If not, they can be color matched.

SHOPPING TIP:

It is suggested you bring both short and high heels, a very supportive strapless bra, a supportive bra with straps, bra inserts if needed, your full body Spanx with straps, and a slip (so far, these are the main things people have wished they had brought).

HELP US OUT PLEASE?

It is requested that you please consider refraining from wearing lotions, fragrance, and little if any makeup when trying on dresses. (Or just coming in from a sweaty hike, ha ha!) We really want to protect the dresses for you and others, as best we can. All tote bags, backpacks, and larger handbags etc.. will need to be stored while shopping or trying on clothes. No food or drinks please. Thanks for your help!
