Dulcinea is a great shop! Whenever I'm in Iowa City I like to stop in and see what fun fashions they have and also chat with their friendly staff. I'm sorry to hear the reviewer below from 2005 didn't think their staff was very nice - but that's what I've always loved about the store! The owner Sandy is always super inviting and friendly and gives a good "honest opinion" like you wish your best girlfriend would when you're out shopping for a cute outfit. Give them a try... they're a breath of fresh air in the Iowa City fashion scene!! :)

Enjoying the late summer the other day downtown, I spotted DLUCINEA. I hadn't been in this shop for a couple of weeks or so, so I decided to stop in and see if they had anthing new that caught my fancy, so to speak.

When I entered the door I caught the eye of the employee behind the counter. She did not greet me in any way and in fact made me somewhat uncomfortable being there....maybe it was my Uof I sweats and pulled up hair?!? I don't know what the problem was but it didn't set the tone well for the shopping experience at all.

I wandered throughout the store and saw to my disappointment, much of the same type of clothing I had seen on previous trips. Now don't get me wrong, the quality of apparel here is top notch, nice fabrics, beautiful stitching,....but when you say that you have said it all. The prices are certainly a lot more than this mother of two can afford for a simple white blouse or a basic black skirt, even if they do have deisgner labels attached!

A bit on the dejected side, I made my way to the front of the store. As I left I caught the eye of the employee and she looked away from me...I guess she didn't have anything to say to me if I wasn't going to purchase any merchandise.

The bottom line is this store is nice, with nice clothing BUT with nice HIGH prices and poor customer service. I feel if you are going to spend money in a store at least you should receive respect and good customer service. But as always, it is your decision my friends, check it out for yourself and let me know your reaction........I'd be all too happy to see another review of this store!

PROS: ...nice quality clothing
CONS: ....high prices and poor customer service

This is an expensive womens clothing store located on South Dubuque. If you are lucky you can find a parking meter to plug and walk to this store. This is not the type of store that a student would be shopping at (or should be shopping at) due to the high prices. It is nice to look around at the beautiful pieces of clothing though.
