I am am an offbeat bride. I'm a size 20 and feel most comfortable in a t-shirt and jeans. I was dreading shopping for a wedding dress which is the complete opposite of how a bride SHOULD feel. Taking all this into account I'm so happy I went to Bridal & Boutique! Jeanne (or Jeannie?) made me feel immediately comfortable and assured me we would find the perfect dress. I didn't feel judged for my size. She provided a corset bra in my size for me to wear while trying on the dresses since I didn't have the proper undergarments. She was personable and friendly and knowledgable. She put me in a few dresses that I never in a million years would have thought would look good on me, but they did! She has a great eye, and she made me see myself differently. I ended up buying the second dress I tried on because under Jeanne/Jeannie's tasteful eye it flattered my figure perfectly, giving me a defined waist while flattening my tummy. Although the dress isn't exactly my vision, she will have it altered to match exactly what I want. We are altering the length, adding fuller sleeves, a green sash and a green tulle underskirt for a pop of my favorite color for my fall wedding! Additionally, she made sure that even with all that customization it came in at the budget I gave her when I first walked in the door. As someone who was intimidated by wedding dress shopping, my experience at Bridal & Boutique could not have been more pleasantly surprising or enjoyable. I can't wait for my first fitting!
I will go to the ends of the earth to have Gary fix, repair, work on ALL of my shoes! he is well worth it. you get what you pay for. and believe me....GARY IS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! i moved from Boulder City to Houston, TX. I tried getting my shoes done in Houston but after ruining three pair of shoes, I bought new AGAIN and sent them to Gary BACK IN LAS VEGAS!! THAT IS HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS GUY!!! He takes pride in all of his work. He will never ever displease you. In life, as we grow older, we learn one important fact.....YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. YOU WANT QUALITY it may cost you a little more, but in the end IT IS SOOOO WORTH IT. I need a lift on one shoe, but not the other. Gary is SO thorough that he ensures BOTH shoes look alike. He puts the lift on one shoe and THEN he puts the same 'sole' on the other shoe --- so my shoes look alike. This man pays attention to detail. Down to the very minute little things that no one else has ever done. I have been to many, many shoe repair shops in my life. I was in the military and have traveled the world. This man is BY FAR --- THE BEST YOU WILL EVER GET!! Gary and Linda.....THANK YOU FOR TAKING GREAT CARE OF ME AND MY SHOES OVER THE YEARS and thank you for continuing.....
I'm not a big fan of designer labels but I have always loved the style of Balenciaga handbags. I'm sort of a handbag snob I guess because I've watched my collection grow to nearly a dozen Bal bags. Each one has a different look and feel, all the leather has a different grain. That's why it's super important to me to physically shop at a boutique so I can carefully examine every bag before I buy.I've bought at both this location as well as the one at Crystals, and I prefer the Forum location simply because their stock is much larger. The sales associates are pretty much the same at both locations; watch out if you aren't decked out in designer gear -- you'll most likely get the snoot and snob treatment or, even worse, you'll get ignored.Nevermind that I was shopping last week at this store with my $2,800 Balenciaga handbag: I was wearing jeans, Chucks and a t-shirt so it took a while for anyone (well, anyone besides the security guard) to greet me. Look, I know boutiques get lots of looky-lous but I'm obviously a serious buyer and customer. I'm overlooking that because dang it, I love these bags!
There are a lot of rare shirts and band patches as well that you can't get anywhere else--if you want your Rancid/Bad Religion/Crass or whatever gear, then this place is the go-to place for it.They even sell some metal band shirts here! However, their selection for metal t-shirts is limited compared to their punk rock shirts. They mainly sell thrash metal ones because hey--thrash metal got part of its roots from hardcore punk, anyway.The staff was friendly to me and helped me pick out some rockabilly/psychobilly dresses that I could wear. Mainly, they don't bother you unless you ask for assistance.Cash 4 Chaos has a wider inventory than Hot Topic. I know that Hot Topic is now beginning to sell other punk stuff besides Misfits, but they pale in comparison to Cash 4 Chaos' offeringsI think this place is worth a visit if you're looking for a place to buy your alternative apparel besides Hot Topic or the Bettie Page Store.
I took a pair of very expensive, custom made riding boots to this establishment, to have a zipper put in the back. Gary not only did that, but you would never know that the zipper was added after the boots were made. He was very nice, professional, and did not charge me an arm and a leg to do the job. I would return to this shop for any other alterations or repairs I might need in the future. Very good establishment.
