I live in Virginia, but am originally from CT and wanted my mom to be with me when I went dress shopping for the first time so we decided to go dress shopping in CT. I found my dress at Stylish Impressions and I ordered my dress in November and the dress did not come in till April. I had to call to find out when my dress was in, which wasn't a big deal. I was coming home to CT in April so I timed it so that I would come home and be able to try on my dress. I thought it would be a good idea to get my first round of alterations done while I was home, boy was that a mistake. In April, I went and tried on my dress. Everything fit perfectly, except of course for the length. The seamstress Yvette Brousseau told me that she could not do my fitting because I didn't have my exact wedding shoes. Since I was only in town for the weekend I assured her if I could come back tomorrow morning I would have my wedding shoes, so she said ok and we scheduled another appointment. My mother and I went on a hunt for wedding shoes and I returned the next morning wedding shoes in tow. Yvette only pinned the hem, my bustle and also some cups in place as the top of the dress was a little big and I didn't want to have to wear a bra. We made an appointment for the weekend of my CT bridal shower in June for me to come back, try on and pick up the dress. Mind you I was never told that Yvette Brousseau works independently from the store and that getting alterations done by her meant that the store was not held liable. I returned in June to try on and pick up my dress. I was simply going to just try on the dress to make sure everything fit ok and then take the dress with my back to VA to have any final alterations done closer to the wedding since I am getting married in the VA area. Upon trying on the dress I couldn't even zip it up...now this is strange because I have not only lost weight but the dress fit me perfectly both times prior. I asked Yvette for help and she had to enlist the help of another customer to get me into the dress. She told me "Oh I must have taken it in too much..." and I said to her " you weren't supposed to take it in at all up top, only add cups". She then said to me "oh my mistake...don't worry I will give you a discount". I was mortified because I'm sure the other people standing around must have thought I just didn't fit into the dress, when in actuality the dress has always fit fine and Yvette decided to take it in 2" for no reason. She assured me it would be an easy fix and said she'd take care of it for me. Here's where the problems began. I needed to take the dress with me back to VA, so I said that wasn't going to work. She said ok don't worry I'll discount it $50 so you only owe me $200 cash and any seamstress will be able to take it out because I didn't cut the fabric. I was in a rush so I just agreed. Biggest mistake... So I brought the dress to a seamstress here in VA who I have worked with before and this was not a small undertaking. She was very concerned about the level of work that needed to be done to let the dress out because the dress has an ivory band that had to be moved when she took the dress in so now it had to be moved again plus she was concerned that the back of the dress would show the work that needed to be done. I paid $155 for her just to let the dress out. She also mentioned that the hem was uneven and still too long (why had I needed to have my wedding shoes then??? If the hem was still too long? and uneven?) and Yvette put DOUBLE cups in and the dress looked ridiculously bulky up top so those would need to be removed too and so we would need to handle that when I came back in. After I left the seamstress I immediately called Stylish Impressions and asked to speak with a manager. The lady informed me the manager was with a bride and assured me that the manager would call me as soon as possible. This was around 11am. When 4:30pm came around and I knew the work day was coming to an end I put in another call to Stylish Impressions. I asked to speak to a manager again, and the woman put her hand over the phone and I could hear her talking to the manager. The manager said "it's really not my problem, I never saw the alterations, she needs to call Yvette directly and work this out". She wanted nothing to do with me, or even to hear what I had to say. The nice woman on the phone gave me Yvette's # and explained that Yvette is an independant contractor and that the store is not responsible for any mistakes made with the alterations. Good to know. Yvette promised to send me a check for the refund, but now a month later I have yet to receive it. I called her and she simply informed me she would no longer be giving me a refund because her financial advisor told her she didn't need to since she had offered to fix the dress even though i'd have to drive to ct for her to do so. I feel extremely taken advantage of and hope this review helps others not make the same mistake.

I have had horrible experiences with this place. For starters, if you ever ask them for a price estimate on ANYTHING be sure you get it in writing because when the time comes to buy something suddenly it's twice the price they quoted you -

I've been to few stores with customer service as great as this one. Everyone was so helpful and nice, plus, they gave honest opinions. My prom was one month away and I found a gorgeous dress at a great price that had a serious "wow" factor

I just purchased my wedding dress at Stylish Impressions this past Sunday. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I called same day and they were able to squeeze me in to an already busy day. I went there after having a bad experience at another bridal store earlier in the day. I had been to 4+ other stores and were starting to lose hope that I would find the perfect dress. When I first walked in I was greated and brought upstairs to find four full racks of gowns, from multiple designers. They had a tremendous selection of satin, tafetta, a-line, mermaid, ballgown.. you name it they had it. My consultant was amazing let me pull as many dresses as I wanted and did not rush me at all. She listened to what I liked and didn't like and pulled amazing gowns for me too. It was down to two gowns and in the end I made my decision and purchased my dress, they measured me, I paid and that was it! They also give you a discount on bridesmaids dresses, tuxes and your veil which they also have a good selection of. I highly recommend this store the owner was polite and helpful making sure all of the brides were happy and being treated like they were the only ones there!! Love them!! As far as the comments about dresses being ordered too large that is common practice if you are borderline between sizes they order the larger one it is better, easier and cheaper to take dresses in then letting them out.

I am so confused reading through these reviews online-Is there a new owner for this store??? The owner helped me with my dress selection for my wedding. She was wonderful. She let me be independent and allowed me to browse through her selections. I tried on a couple of styles that were not me, but at least I could see if they fit my body type or not. I never felt more comfortable. She was not pushing her product, but rather gathered my info and allowed me to think about my purchase. I went to other stores and, boy, I wasn't even allowed to search through their stock! They asked me what I was looking for and then selected gowns for me from the back of the store! The prices might be a little higher than other bridal salons, but I think it is worth it.
And ladies, if you do decide to purchase your gown at this location, they let you open the dress yourself, inspect it for any faults and make sure it meets your approval!

We bought 5 prom dresses from Stylish Impressions with great experiences each time. When it came time to buy my daughters wedding dress, this was our first and only choice of a place to go. They brought out lots of dresses for her to try, and were very patient. We ended up with something different than what she thought she wanted, and it was beautiful! They suggested a perfect dress for the maid of honor, and accessories to match. We ordered everything, and it all went extremely smoothly.
I ordered my dress there also and was told that it would be 4 months and would be in on April 25th. It came in on the 26th! Yvette does fantastic alterations, and very quickly. Everything went smoothly with my dress and I was glad that they had ordered it a bit big, as there was one spot that was a bit snug and had to be let out.
It's hard to read some of these reviews and apply them to our experiences with Diane and Stylish Impressions! We bought 5 prom dresses there, a maid of honor dress, MOB dress and the wedding dress there and and it was so smooth, easy and fun that I can't imagine going anywhere else. We've been there through all the remodeling and each time thought it was a wonderful experience. Thank you Diane, Yvette and staff for being there for many years!

Cons: Formal wear takes a long time to come in on an order, so go as soon as you can!

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME GOING TO THIS PLACE. EVERYTHING THERE IS HIDEOUS, UNORGANIZED AND TRASHY. THE OWNER IS SNOOTY AND RUDE AND WILL NICKEL AND DIME ALL OF HER CUSTOMERS. BEWARE. THEY WILL PRESSURE YOU TO BUY DRESSES THAT ARE EXPENSIVE, EVEN IF YOU DONT LIKE THEM, AND TRY RETURNING THEM! YOU GET STUCK WITH A BIG FAT STORE CREDIT. MY ADVICE IF THIS HAPPENS TO YOU; BUY IT BACK AND SELL IT ON EBAY. DONT LET THEM SCREW YOU OVER.

My mother purchased her dress for my wedding there. She also purchased her shoes and a purse there. The purse was marked with a price and once taken to the register the purse was all of a sudden more money. The owner explained the purse was marked wrong. Liar!! Does she know that in the state of CT it is illegal to do that? The problem with her shoes was her dress was hemmed to be worn with these shoes and the owner of Stylish Impressions decided to wait 1 week before my wedding the day of my mothers final fitting to tell us the shoes were "discontinued" We were furious! I could not believe that they cut the dress knowing the shoes would not be available for her to wear. The owner made no apology and took no responsibility. She wouldn't even get on the phone with me, instead had a sales associate speak on her behalf. Her idea of rectifying the situation was offering my mother the sample pair that everyone and their mother had tried on. They were very obviously worn looking and a size too small!!! She wanted my mother to walk around the house with thick socks on to stretch them out, did I mention they were SANDALS! She was also charging us full price for the floor sample shoes. I searched high and low for the shoes, had them rush delivered and they were still cheaper than what she had charged. I got them direct from the shoe company who assured me these shoes had not been discontinued. Do not go there unless you want horrible customer service or enjoy being mislead and treated with no respect. I would never do business there again.

BRIDES BEWARE!!
I ordered 7 Jim Hjelm bridesmaid dresses from this store, each over $250. When the dresses came in the zippers were all stuck, not any fault of Stylish Impressions. I asked that the zippers be replaced, no charge, and they did. I should have known it was too easy. The day of my wedding as the girls were getting dressed, my sister, one of my MOHs zipper fell apart. I looked at the zipper and saw that it was hacked together, messy stitching falling apart. As I sat on the bed in my wedding dress sewing my sisters dress back together I thought of all of the aweful things I wanted to say to this store owner.....just what a bride wants to think about on her wedding day. My bustle on my dress broke after 1 dance and the bottom got all ripped up from walking on it all night. I spent well over $1500 at this shop and didn't get one apology after sending a letter of disgust. They also ordered my girls dresses too big, and then charged them $40-$60 each to alter them, which they did a lousy job. Recently I was going to wear one of the dresses to a wedding, it was pink and summery so I thought why not....I zipped up the dress, fit me perfect, and then tried to take it off. The zipper would not budge! I ended up cutting this $270 bridesmaid dress off me! BRIDES BEWARE!!!!!

I would never buy anything again from Stylish Impressions! As another reviewer wrote, I too was forced into a larger size than was needed and then needed to pay for alterations. The dress was so huge it had to be taken in two sizes and was then still too big! They measured me at the store and insisted I needed a bigger dress than I actually did. When the dress came in (which takes months), it was too late to return it for an appropriate size, so I was stuck with a dress that was too big and had to pay for alterations. Then, the day of the event, my dress strap came right off! I couldn't wear the dress because the strap would not stay on, despite me pinning it numerous times. Stylish Impressions would not take the dress back, give me a store credit, or even offer an apology. When I talked with the owner about this, she was shockingly rude, repeatedly interrupting me and saying she didn't know the strap actually came off because she wasn't there to witness it. (She had the dress right in front of her, and it was clear the strap had come right off.) She called it "normal wear and tear" even though I had barely worn the dress before the strap just came off! I have never in my life been spoken to in such a condescending and offensive way by the management of any store. I would not recommend this shop to anyone.

I'm kind of confused when reading some of the other recent reviews....I recently purchased my wedding dress as well as my bridal party dresses and I had a relatively good experience-the only thing I didn't like was my first visit....at the time the store was small (but being remodeled to expand space) and packed! So for a first time shopper I felt a little neglected however I chose to purchase my dress there because it was priced BETTER than other stores I saw it at. Every other visit was extremely pleasant and the manager, Diane was AWESOME; very accomodating and nice to work with. I do recommend giving them a try. My only recommendation is that is you are just starting to look for dresses, try and go during the day or be the first appt. on Sat. when its much less busy--Sat. by mid day tend to get very busy. I am overall pleased with the quality of all the dresses purchased there

I would never go back! This store pressured me and my sister to buy larger dresses so that we would have to pay more money. Then they charged us for the alterations. I know several people with weddings to plan, and they will not be shopping at stylish impressions. I would never make my brides maids suffer for being larger than what the dress maker feels you should be!

I was very unhappy with stylish impressions. They forced me and my sister to buy larger dresses than necessary and then charged for alterations. They charge you higher prices based on your size and then tell you that you have to buy the larger size even if you don't need it!

Do not go here if you are looking for a dress and good service. The prices are outrageous, and any dress found here can be found somewhere else for less. The staff is pushy and rude. They are nice when you have an expensive dress on and they are going to make a profit. They advise against all other stores, making it even more obvious how hellbent they are on forcing you into a dress. Not to mention the return policy is ridiculous. I went there and found nothing that i liked, and was talking to a friend of mine about the store, who said that she had gone there and tried to return an extremely expensive dress which they refused to do. SO, they kept the dress and the money, and told them that the "credit" was good for a year. EVEN THOUGH the dress had not yet been altered. Those looking to buy one or more dresses , beware, you are STUCK with them. The store is small and poorly set up. Go to a different store if you want any sort of selection. The manager is rude and has a serious attitude, as the other review writer apparently experienced as well. DONT GO HERE! its a money trap, you can find your dress online or at a different store for a much better price, and better yet avoid a rude manager and selfish policies.

Do not go here if you are looking for a dress and good service. The prices are outrageous, and any dress found here can be found somewhere else for less. The staff is pushy and rude. They are nice when you have an expensive dress on and they are going to make a profit. They advise against all other stores, making it even more obvious how hellbent they are on forcing you into a dress. Not to mention the return policy is ridiculous.

Pros: none

Cons: bad policies/lack of care for customers/rude manager/high prices

RUN! I would NEVER shop at this store again. We drove 90 minutes to this tiny store and spent $375 on a beautiful dress. The beads began to fall off within an hour of my daughter wearing it. Following her prom, we called the store who said to return the dress to be fixed. After 6 months and no call, I called to find the dress was still hanging in the back and had not been touched. Another 3 months later I called - they can't find beads. I then send the strap from which to take the beads to repair the dress. It is now 10 months later and we have not received the dress back. The owner is argumentative each time I call, telling me she's busy with customers and that she has no "schedule" for her seamstress's time - always trying to find some way it is not her fault. How can a business owner operate a business with such disregard for her customers? BUYER BEWARE. IF YOU CAN FIND THE DRESS ELSEWHERE, YOU SHOULD.

As a small business owner myself, I'm appalled at the service we received.

We caught the dresses on a great sale (theyre Morilee) and the girls LOVED them! We had great service from Diane the first time we were there and when we ordered the dresses. They were able to provide me with swatches of the material at two different times. However, the sizes they ordered for a few of the girls were a bit off. One of my BMs is a size 2 and they convinced her she was an 8 in this dressof course they had to take it in! The girls said they were rushed at times by the seamstress.
