To those of you that have felt put-off by Katia and the way the store is run, here is a bit of information. First of all, most people mistake her observation of new clients as rude. Spend 5 minutes interacting with her, and you'll find

Simply said......THIS IS THE BEST STORE ANYWHERE IN THE USA! Katia has the best selection of any store I have every been to.....i.e traveled the world. The buyer is so current that few stores anywhere carry what "Katia" carries. This is due to the owners experience, forsite and taste!
I read some of the reviews. from the fake flooring person, (the worst flooring co in TX, to beware.). what OK girls, go back to Marshalls! we don't want you in our clothes!...

Pros: Owner, Buyer, Location, STYLE!

Cons: They're closed on Sunday

I have a small family owned decorative concrete company. My husband is well known in inter loop Houston for his attention to details on every project and incredible work ethics!
When Katia?? was about to open, our company was contracted for concrete floors. We stated that the condition of her slab was not the greatest and we did not think they would be happy with the results. The owner insisted that she wanted concrete. We did the job. Several days later, the contractor called and said the odor of the sealer was too strong for the tenants next door. We dropped everything and came back and put a wax over it to cut down the smell. We then sent an invoice for work completed. SHE NEVER PAID. Meanwhile, she decided that she did not want stained concrete and covered it with tile. When we contacted her, she stated it never happed and only a sample was put down and she decided against it. I went into her store a year or so later with the invoice and told her I would even trade clothes for the amount dues. She stated that it never happened. We are hard working honest people. We did not deserve to be treated this way. I wish ther was a NO STAR option

Pros: none

Cons: she does not pay her bills

The owner of this store must have married someone rich, for their money, as she really didnt care for our business. Maybe she doesnt like people of colour? Whichever way, she displayed such a rude and arrogant disposition. Maybe she made assumptions that we could not afford the goods in her store? But looking at the other reviews, it seems like most of us are on the same page. I went to this store today - April 9, 2009. Never again. Go only if you like being treated like SH**! (P.S. The shop assistant was pleasant though - i feel sorry for her having a boss like that)

Pros: NO PROS after such gawd-awful and rude service!

Cons: RUDEST OWNER WHO COULDNT WAIT FOR US TO LEAVE

i just noticed how most of the good reivews of this terrible store are on the same day with a user that has only one post..um...... i smell ballot stuffing..
anyway,,this store is dark and in a strip mall,,they have some cool things,,but you can find all of the brands at other much nicer , enjoyable boutiques in town. seriously, the worst experience i have ever had in a boutique or for that matter retail shopping experience,,, the owner is usually the only one there,, she's rude,she doesn't want anybody to touch anything,, she's one of those ageing women trying to wear clothes that make her"feel" young,, it's just funny to see,, but really,don't give your business to denise,,she's rude beyond belief,, read all the reviews..not just the ones that are glowing,,you'll see,, it's a terrible place

Pros: it didn't take long to get out of the store

Cons: everything,, seriously,, rude,uptight,almost mad that any customers were bothering her..

Katia was great, comfortable and so much stuff to get lost in, sales girls were nice, helpful and adorable. The owner was even there helping customers put an entire look together, which is rare (owners never help regular customers)...but she seemed really cool. The displays were awesome and the store, sales girls and owner had individual style rather than a copycat look, I can see why they are so successful. I found some great stuff and before I left, the owner even hipped me to a few new items coming in that I may like, she was paying attention and she wasn't even my sales girl. I liked it.

as a woman who loves to shop, i have found very few cool stores to shop in houston...the merchandise and selection at most places are not that great. At this store i have beyond and above found cute, unique and hip clothing. While trying to find out if they had a website i found this citysearch website and started to read reviews... it baffles me how people could complain about this store... just because a saleswoman didnt treat you like royalty you think writing a review on citysearch will make you feel better..well i hope those people read this and realize so many more people love the store than hate it or criticize it- since i heard she has been there for 22 years, and maybe you (nasty review writers) were a pain in the butt to help and dont really appriciate boutique shoppping...go back to the galleria where you belong, let us who enjoy the store shop there

I went to Katia, not much of a boutique shopper but have been hearing so much hype, figured I would check it out. A bit nervous at first, tons of stuff, feels like I'm walking into someone's home with a ton of cool stuff...stuff I see in magazines but kind of pricey, which I can't afford...But, then I took a deep breath and relaxed, browsed around, the sales people were nice enough, said to shout if I needed help and left me alone, which was great. I looked at EVERYTHING, beautiful stuff, cool stuff, I felt out of my league, BUT...I found affordable stuff, just hard to look at less expensive stuff when crazy beautiful stuff is so close....I ended up buying a really cute t-shirt and the owner actually helped me find a pair of jeans that fit perfect. I hope to become a regular!

I visited this boutique just a few days ago with my sister-in-law to use a gift certificate she had gotten and I was immediately impressed off my feet by the place the level of class and sophistication and being able to shop in a store where it is not crowded and the type of clothing is different not what is seen on everyone or at all the the stores in the mall.

I know classy clothing since I travel extensively all over the world and have shopped in Italy, Spain, Paris, New York, Beverly Hills and London just to name a few and I am really thrilled by the store and the service.

They didn't follow me around not for a minute but were extremely helpful and nice. I must say Denise has a great sense of class and was very helpful in mixing and matching clothing for me, I am so pleased.

To show how pleased I was, I have been back to the store once again and spent more than I did the first time and I must say it was upward of $2,000.00. I am planning to go back again very soon.

My sister-in-law loved it very much and we are both looking forward to returning very soon.

Denise keep up the good work and I will always be your customer I love you style, class and most of all the clothing.

i fist went to katia with a friend of mine who was a regular shopper. My friend has shopped with denise for years. so i was treated ok,,i guess.. denise talked to my friend and was bringing us stuff to try on. yes they have jeans , and some cute tops.but nothing you can't find at other nicer,upscale boutiques inside the loop.
When my friend mentioned that i was just trying on stuff to get an idea of fit,etc before i bought. denise.literally dropped the stack of stuff in her hands and walked away, never to return to see how we were doing, As we left, denise said goodbye to my friend but did not say anything to me. no big deal.. i thought the place was ridiculously overpriced for poor quality clothing. there are a lot of trendy things. but nothing classic or that would last more than one season. When i told another friend of mine about my experience, my friend immediatly relayed to me how she would never shop there again, that denise was the rudest .no class , encounter she had ever had in a retail store.. i believe that denise has some loyal clients that have shopped there out of convenience and they don't like big stores or driving all over to find something they want. I have never written a review before, but was driven to write a review of katia and denise as a warning to anybody thinking of going. She's rude, she's unhelpful. she won't let you touch anything, and the style of clothings is on par with forever 21.albeit a bit better constructed,,but not much.

Pros: i never have to go there again.

Cons: rude service, poor lighting, and about twice the price of any other store that carries the exact same stuff.

I was so thrilled with this boutique. I had been searching and searching for a skinny leather pants, and they had the best selection, not to mention the service. Denise is not only beautiful, but a total teddy bear. Max, the pretty little bichon was delightfull and smelled wonderfull. I recommend this store to all of my friends, male or female. Just make an appointment and be prepared to be pampered with a capital "P".

I have been shopping at Katia for at least 20 years and love it. I cannot believe the nasty reviews about this store. I have a few things to say to you people. When is the last time you shopped L.A., New York, or Paris and got the red carpet treatment. YOU try running a store successfully and see how many friends you make. She takes her job serious and makes sure we (Houston) are decked out in the latest fashion. It's not her job to make friends. We all know what happens when you mix business with friendship. When I go out of town, I have no need to shop for clothes since Katia has the best of the best from all the cutting edge designers. Shoes are the only thing i need to shop for and she is about to offer a new shoe line to her customers. As for the dog person, Max could not hurt a fly. YOU are lying. Get over it and get into the fashion. Hmmmmm, 4" dog or cute outfit. PRIORITIES GIRL!!!!

Pros: new designers, greatest jeans, awesome jewelry, spectacular t-shirts, pretty dresses

Cons: not enough money

From the moment you walk in the door until the moment you walk out with your purchase (thrilled), you feel valued as a customer. The staff makes it their mission to learn about you and your needs, suggesting items (without hovering), making you comfortable in the dressing room, and genuinely thanking you for your patronage. It's easy to become spoiled in Katia! The staff makes you feel as if you're shopping with your girlfriends,never feeling rushed or anything. And you can be sure to find something unique that will make you stand out in the crowd. Great inventory, great service, very inviting!

Cons: can't buy the whole store

If i could not pick a rating it would be none. Don't waste your time or your money in this so called boutique. Yes, they carry alot of good designer names but i would rather go to the galleria or some other boutique. My friend and i went in and they were so rude, like we did not belong. They said we did need an appointment, which is fine,so then i asked if we could just look around and she acted like we needed to leave. We did look around because i was curious what was so special that i needed an appointment. We followed and followed like we were going to steal. Rude, rude, rude...not impressed!

Well, I heard horror stories about this place. My sister was blacklisted from the store after arguing with the owner. Another one of my sisters went in, ended up returning some stuff, and had this store credit. The blacklist thing happened, so she was afraid to go back in the store and gave the credit to me to go in. I called to make an appointment, they said I didn't need one, and when I got there I got yelled at. So I made an appointment. And when I told them I had store credit.. they looked at me like I was crazy. I wouldn't spend my own money in there.. nor will I spend a large credit that was given to me in there. It smelled bad, and being the most patient person in the world.. that store more than frustrated me.

This is the most ridiculous store I've ever shopped. In all sincerity and no mud being slung....Denise needs to get on some medication. Yes, she is talented and has some of the best clothes in houston but that is no excuse to treat customers so poorly. Unless you know her personally, stay away from this boutique or she will treat you like crap...period. If you can get past this, then you will go home with some awesome clothes.

Cons: The owner

Katia is one of the best boutiques around any where. Denise knows fashion! If she was not good at what she does why has she been around for 25 years? So she doesnt want to be your best friend or hear your problems. She is there to dress you correctly if you will take her advice. By appointment she can give you undivided attention. She sends me boxes of clothes all the time since I moved to Florida. As for her little dog, he is a hot accessory..everyone knows that!

so get over complaining and look at the awesome clothes in that happy room!!!

I found a top in a magazine that was only sold locally at Katia. I called and was told that they did have the tops in my size. I said I was nearby and would be in. The girl I spoke with on the phone didn't say anything about an appointment, but when I walked in with my assistant , we got what could only be described as a chilly reception. They quickly told us that they are appointment only and proceeded to follow us around the store until we finally got sick of it and left, without the top we wanted! We both fully intended to buy one of the tops, but not from someone with such horrible manners. This store is clearly not upscale. It was dirty and smelled odd, so the idea that the owner actually thinks people will want to make an appointment to go there is laughable. No thanks!

Pros: Absolutely none

Cons: Too numerous to mention

Same xperience as most of you. This owner has major psychological issues. I had $5000 that my husband said I could spend (a mother's day gift.) I had heard that this place had great clothes. I was eady to spend it all. But I committed the ultimate sin: I walked in to her little shack without an appointment. Who does she think she is? She probably likes being known as a witch, but really she's just an idiot. Think of the money she loses. I'll spare you the details of what she said. Needless to say, I immediately notified 50 of my closest friends. I suggest that you do the same. Trust me. One day it will catch up with her. Until then, maybe she'll take her meds and spare us all the grief. By the way, I had my 6 month-old with me and as I was struggling to leave with my stroller, she stood a few feet away and let the door slam on me and my child. (I think that even put a smile on her face.) Oh yeah and Neiman's got my 5 grand...

Although, i hate to write reviews...I absolutely HAD to! I too have shopped at Katia several times and all the times not spending less than $500... I was so excited one day before my birthday and wanted to buy alot, atleast 2 grand..i just wanted like 4 jeans or whatever fit, i wanted....well as i walked in, I said HI!! She, the owner I know because she has waited on me the last time I was there.; Actually bringing me pieces to the dressing room and suggesting other items, anyway i went in there just happy and then she said, oh sorry we're by appointment only; i was like really, since when? she said this whole year, i have a sign on the door...I said "well thats odd, because i have been here before with no appointment" she just looked and shrugged her shoulders...MIND YOU>>> the store was empty!! I asked if I wanted to buy something now could I, she said NO. I was shocked and how bold she was... so i proceeded to ask her " do we have to buy anything when we make an appt?" she said "NO" That to me is a TOTAL waste of time...I had to make an appt even if I did or didn't buy anything and I wanted to spend ALOT that day...total let down! Even though, yes she has cute things and clothes the celebs wear, I don't think its worth anyones time to even bother going in... If I can suggest to you... Lady Elle in uptown park, Abejas on Kirby, even a cute little resale shop that carries all of this plus Gucci, L, Prada and all the cool jeans called More than you can Imagine on westheimer...
Its just absolutely a damn shame that we live on this earth once and have ugly people like her to just ruin your day!!

Good Luck!

She, the owner I know because she has waited on me the last time I was there.; Actually bringing me pieces to the dressing room and suggesting other items, anyway i went in there just happy and then she said, oh sorry we're by appointment only; i was like really, since when? she said this whole year, i have a sign on the door...I said "well thats odd, because i have been here before with no appointment" she just looked and shrugged her shoulders...MIND YOU>>> the store was empty!! I asked if I wanted to buy something now could I, she said NO. I was shocked and how bold she was... so i proceeded to ask her " do we have to buy anything when we make an appt?" she said "NO" That to me is a TOTAL waste of time...I had to make an appt even if I did or didn't buy anything and I wanted to spend ALOT that day...total let down! Even though, yes she has cute things and clothes the celebs wear, I don't think its worth anyones time to even bother going in... If I can suggest to you... Lady Elle in uptown park, Abejas on Kirby, even a cute little resale shop that carries all of this plus Gucci, L, Prada and all the cool jeans called More than you can Imagine on westheimer...
Its just absolutely a damn shame that we live on this earth once and have ugly people like her to just ruin your day!!

Good Luck!

Pros: THE BEST & MOST CURRENT MERCH.

I cannot even believe this store exists still. I have never been treated by a store owner the way Katia's owner treats her customers. No. 1, she will yell at you if you TOUCH the clothing on the racks. No. 2, Way to expensive to spend my money on a store that is hurtful and rude to their customers.

If youre looking for abuse, Katia is your store-happy shopping, it is not.
While I admit, Ive shopped the store several times, always lured back by the jean selection & array of unusual finds; but my past visit will be my last. While disappointed, I cant endure it: I last walked in to be scolded by the owner. She insisted no fumbling through things, which is quite normal of her, but then she proceeded to advise that they work by appointments only (since when?). I was appalled, especially being a repeat cust. With every nerve twitching to retaliate, I mustered her classless existence & proceeded to try on selections the personal shopper deemed appropriate. With much regret, I passed up 3 items I loved, around $600 worth - b/c of the owner, I took my business elsewhere. For someone catering to the public, she missed the concept of Cust. Service.

I have been shopping here for over ten years and have always found something
to buy and new ideas on how to dress. i have also picked up the owners little bichon and carried him around the store and he couldn't have been more friendly and sweet so i was shocked at one of your reviews i read. I love this store and the dog.

In town to work with band that was playing here, long story short, the airlines lost my luggage. In town for 3 days, no clothes. I remembered a boutique that I liked last time I was in town a couple years earlier. Katia, looked up the address and ran into this site. I'm really surprised at the extreme reviews, people either love it or hate it. It's weird that some of the customers take a walk in a boutique so personally. In L.A., you'd be thrown in therapy immediately. Why so harsh, if you don't feel comfortable in a store, don't go back. Anyway, after reading these, I felt the need to say that I was treated fine, normal, polite...I looked around, found some things, asked who I later found out was the owner about some jeans, told her my problem and she set me up, she helped me find some gems that I missed and I happily walked out of Katia forgetting how upset I was about my luggage. Next time I may come to Houston just to shop.

Pros: great stuff, less expensive than L.A.

I have been a customer here for three years and sometimes I wonder why. I do enjoy the selection of denim and other unique items I find. Customer service leaves alot to be desired. This creates a delimma for me every time I think I want to spend my money here. This is where my title comes from, the anxiety I feel before I even enter the store makes me wonder why I keep going back. Maybe it's convenient for me because I don't like high traffic areas.

Katia Boutique gives new meaning to:INCREDIBLY RUDE. It makes the mind reel with how rude the owner is to customers who are spending money to benefit her business. I enjoy finding unique items but have found there is NOTHING there, that can't be found on the internet or in another store with staff who will acknowledge your existence. Whether it's high end or moderately priced clothing, Houston has a lovely buffet of boutiques to shop in with personnel who will treat you with basic human kindness. A rude owner, a barking dog, clothes you can't touch, clothes you can find some place else.... Not to mention it being "By Appointment Only". Come on. Houston women don't need an appointment to shop, just money. The owner is missing the boat on that note, not to mention sales. Customers are too savvy to put up with this kind of poor customer service.

A friend & I went in to look. Her dog came out and charged at me. Only after I picked up a pillow to keep it away did someone come to get it, only to allow it to come towards me again. My friend & I were asked if we had appointments and were told she was "a personal shopper by appointment only". Judging from the previous reviews, that is not true. I believe she just did not want us there, being that the dog was allowed to come near us a second time. No assistance was offered, and she stopped short of asking us to leave. My being shaken by her little mutt was the only thing that saved her from a piece of my mind.

Cons: , Cheap-looking clothes, Ridiculous prices

I went to Katia with a friend who was doing research on boutiques and high-end department stores to compare prices, selection, and service --- Katia was the WORST BY FAR. Prices were the same or MORE expensive on same items, selection was average, service was HORRIBLE... OurExperience: 1) no store hours were posted, but that didn't stop the employee from rushing everybody out the door 5 minutes before an arbitrary "closing time"; 2) while we were looking through some items, she'd ask if we were done yet versus offering help; 3) when we made our purchases, we were hoping her attitude would change since we were giving her our business (albeit unwillingly for the research project), but did it? NOPE. She just took our purchases, threw them in the bag and handed it to us without a single word! I think the best part of the whole experience was leaving!

I went to Katia's to check it out after I heard she had a huge selection of jeans. The whole time I was there I had a dog barking at me the WHOLE time. Then after I said that I hope the dog does not bite, the rude owner scolded at me for talking about her dog! I was too scared too touch anything because of all the stupid signs saying do not touch! I was not greeted going in or asked to be helped at all. Worst of all? It STUNK like dog and I like my clothes to smell new NOT like dog!

katia always has the latest and coolest stuff. You can always find the perfect everyday outfit there along with trendy jewelry and quality brands that are current and fit nicely. I recommend this store for anyone with good taste or anyone into the California/I'm famous look.
