    After my plans of having my dress customized failing because of the designer's busy schedule I went into complete panic mode. Being 7 months pregnant and looking for a dress was definitely not what I had planned. I emailed Carolyn and asked her professional opinion on if I should wait to get a dress or try some on while pregnant. She said no I'll find you a dress now. I made an appointment and was super surprised at how many options she had for me. I was stuck between two beautiful dresses. And while at first I was leaning towards the most expensive because it's what I thought I wanted all along Carolyn and my mom's obvious preference was the lower priced sequened beauty. And after not being able to make up my mind at my appointment she opened up on a Sunday so I could retry. And I chose the one she knew was the better fit all along. Carolyn was honestly amazing !!!

    I visited Carolyn's shop more than a year before I tied the knot. I wasn't ready to try on dresses yet...worried about my size, latest styles, you name it. But my mom urged me to just go and check out some dresses. I tried on 3. The first was what I had described as what I thought I wanted (but was just ehh). The second was something that would be figure flattering (but wasn't my taste). The third made me feel like Cleopatra, Beyonce, some badass powerful woman. It was classic, classy, a soft champagne color, covered buttons down the train. Carolyn did not apply pressure but she knew this was my dress. I was hesitant to make the decision that quickly and she had know hard feelings when I called to make an appointment that afternoon at a more traditional bridal salon to try on more styles. The dress at Carolyn's was in my head, though, and we went back the next day. I spent $600 on a wedding dress that looks like it costs 3x that amount. On top of that, Carolyn recommended my seamstress and florist, who both did extraordinary and afforable work. She's a gem!

    Carolyn was able to get me a pretty last minute appointment, and was very thorough asking questions so she was ready for the appointment. I was afraid since it was a store with discontinued sample dresses, that I wouldn't have a lot to choose from (especially being a size 8-10 in normal dresses), but she did an amazing job choosing dresses for my skin tone and body shape, and I ended up going home with the first dress she picked out. She didn't rush me at all though, she took her time and put no pressure on me to buy anything and still encouraged me to try a couple other dresses on before making a decision. I got my dress for $1,200, although it was normally priced at $2,500, and it is a gorgeous champagne satin dress with a lace top and covered buttons down the back. The vintage earrings and brooch set were only $115. She also helped me pick out some beautiful vintage jewelry and gave me tips and ideas on how to customize my entire look to fit my venue. Carolyn was great to work with and made my mom and I feel very comfortable, and I definitely recommend her!
