Amazing Experience

We walked in without an appointment due to a terrible appointment at a previous salon. Kim immediately helped us and fit me into her schedule. She looked at my Pinterest and immediately pulled gowns that she thought i鈥檇 like and even ones who she thought would look good on me. Each gown I tried on kept getting better and better - and the best part is that I ended up deciding on a dress that same day. She was so great, attentive, helpful, and fun!
