When I am looking for the perfect dress to wear out for a special occasion, I always turn to La France because they have the best selection possible. I love their styles.

The dress which i purchased was comfortable as it could be, yet it is still sexy. It could be worn to a company party or out on a romantic date. The choices are unlimited. If you want to feel feminine, this dress will do it for you. I chose the deep auborgine color for this occasion. I thought about getting the red but thought it might be a bit too bold for the occasion that I needed it for. The darker color would work best. The material on this dress flows so nicely when I walk. It is almost too good a dress to be true. I loved the just above the knee length that didn??t make me look like I was trying to be sixteen again as well. The color is solid, which suits my needs perfectly. I don??t like loud and crazy colors. I think the solids just give it a little more class than prints would give to it. The dress is perfect for me. It fit very well and looked like it was made with me in mind. I couldn??t have designed a dress that was more suitedfor me than this one was.

I was very pleased with this dress from every aspect. It fit perfectly, flowed perfectly and even had the perfect length and color. I would highly recommend this dress for anyone that has a special occasion coming up. It will fit perfectly no matter what the occasion is. It will add a little class to your overall look and if you are out on a date, your date will be more than proud to be out with you on his arm. This dress is even at a good price now. It is much lower than it??s original price so you should get one while they last. There are a variety of colors to choose from. The color I chose just happened to be right for the occasion I was buying it for. I would purchase it again if I needed to for any reason. In fact, if I have another occasion, I might consider purchasing another one in a different color. The dress is a very nice one and it works well in any situation that I can possibly think of. It is comfortable and I don??t feel like I have to worry about my movements. It isn??t too tight around my body. It fits perfectly.

Great shopping experience! I have purchased several unique french jewelry items (pins, etc.) for Christmas /birthday gifts etc. When visiting Tampa I also make time to visit La France.

The jewlery alone is worth a trip to La France. They have fabulous clothing, both restored vintage and new vintage style, but better than that, they have gloves, shoes, hats, and wonderful jewlery. VERY full store, and really nice help.

PROS: LOTS of stock, in great shape.
CONS: High prices, crowded store.

Excellent selection of vintage clothing from all eras, particularly the 40's and 50's. Also has jewelry (lovely collection of silver jewelry with semiprecious stones), shoes, hats, and other accessories. Also imported clothes such as hawaiian outfits and kimono's. Expensive, particularly some of the fancier dresses, but you get what you pay for.

PROS: Wide selection
CONS: Pricey

Everything you could ever want for your antique fashion need and inspiration. From fedoras to flapper dresses, beautiful designs, and great aura with pieces for men and women.

It's hard to believe that in Ybor City, party capitol of Tampa Bay, there could exists one of the finest vintage clothing stores in the world. While their vintage clothing comes with often a hefty price tag (upwards of $45 per item), every peice is in pristine condition and ready to wear.
While their wares are primarily women's apparel and accessories, they also have a fine selection of menswear. Top hats, parasols, flapper dresses, kimonos, brooches and lace galore is what you will find here. This is a perfect place to go to find a special occasion dress (they also sell contemporary clothes too). La France has so many treasures and little bits of history that you'll have to make more than one trip to finally see everything.

PROS: La France has beautiful vintage clothing for all occassions.
CONS: So much to see, product is cramped, may cause claustrophobia.

I have been to La France several times to browse, but only yesterday did I go there to truly shop for something I needed and was very dissapointed. They have probably a thousand Su Wong gowns at Saks prices and most of the gowns have been there for over a year! I was interested in two dresses that were on "clearance". One had been on sale since 02/07 and another since 10/07, so there is no telling how long they have even been in the store and I was also informed by a long time "sales" girl that I was lucky there was a sale section at all. Supposedly, the owner just puts things on sale when she is tired of looking at them; she must not need to really sell anything. The gowns are way over priced! Nothing with a stretch polyester lining is worth $600.00, or even $300.00 on sale, especially when there are a thousand gowns crammed on to three walls ( could barely get to them). Aside from all of the above mess, the sales girl was very abraisive and defensive when I asked about the prices, proceeding to tell me about the eccentricities of the owner like she was the great and powerful Oz. The whole thing was silly and dissapointing! If your running a retail store act like it, because I can buy a Su Wong dress somewhere else. Everything in there, while being sometimes beautiful and sometimes really worn out, is severely over priced. Its all too bad really, because I love vintage jewelry and clothes and have been in vintage stores all over the country, but I have never seen this kind of over priced stuff and snobbery.

It is a destination location that may save you several days of thrifting, internet shopping, and boutique hunting if they have that one thing that you are looking for, but is the markup really worth the saved time?

That all depends on how much time you have on your hands, or if you know your clothing size and have an Ebay account. Almost all the fashion offered here can be gotten for a fraction of the price (sometimes hundreds of dollars less) if you know you size and have an Ebay account.

French replica fashion at high prices, a good collection of real womens' vintage, and almost no mens selection, (unless you want a Hawaiian shirt).

I did not ask if they offer tailoring, but just about anything you get from here will need it. Sizes in vintage are very different from sizes today. And therein lies the rub to all high priced vintage store boutiques; Spend hundreds of dollars on a piece of clothing that you will have to spend hundreds of dollars to have fitted to you. The same conclusion can be reached about this boutique, it may have something beautiful, but girl, it will cost you.

Pros: Lots of selection limited to 30's -50's fashion.

Cons: Very overpriced, lots of overpriced replicas, expensive parking, dangerous neighborhood.

My boyfriend and I have been wanting to come here for a long time and we finally did. We were not disappointed. We didn't want to leave! They have everything I love to wear. I was especially excited to see the selection of vintage wedding dresses..amazing! We are planning a wedding in Italy and I found the perfect dress to wear. The prices are high but I feel it is worth it...especially for the dress.

I jsut got back from La France for the first time a couple of hours ago and the clothing is very unique and original! Nobody can ever walk into La France and say they don't like anything! All of the clothing is of good quality and almost everything looks as if it's one of a kind! From flapper style dresses to kimino dresses (my faves!) La France is my new fave! (Tiny warning thoiugh: Prices are very..risky! Be sure to have a full wallet! ^_~ )

This is great place to search for that hard to find gift - treasures you never knew you needed. whenever my sister visits from Chicago - she wants to stop here for some unique bag or bauble to add to her wardrobe.

When visiting Tampa, Ive been coming to window shop here for years. It is a bit too pricey but has alot of designer duds to tempt and tease. Ive seen many great 40's and 50's cocktail dresses but only find the accessories economical. It is a wonderful gallery of style which I consider more of a museum than an actual shoppe (beacause of the prices)
