The people my daughter worked with were rude and distrespectful. One of the workers told her she didn't like the dresses on her, and made rude comments about coming with her friends, and treated us like we could not afford the dresses. DO

I special ordered a Jovani dress from Distinctions on Olive. Being the mother of the bride this is a very special dress for a VERY special day. I visited the shop with one of my friends, my daughter (the bride) and my future son-in-law.

Zuzana...you should be ashamed of yourself. We took that dress to the cleaners and were told that the person who wore it totally damaged it in some sort of water or maybe the customer tried washing the dress. It had obvious water marks

After waiting 35 minutes my first time at the store, I decided to leave because I wasn't being helped. I returned the next weekend when it wasn't as busy and was belittled. I would've gone somewhere else but this was the only store in town

So......Labre is terribly misinformed. Why must retailers continuely respond to misinformed customers? Talk about " a poor attitude!" Labre called on the phone and assumed we offered a "measuring service" for a dress that she was ordering from another store. It is true that on the day the bride was purchasing a dress from our store the seamstress was asked to measure the girls who had accompanied her to see her dress. It is the policy of the store not to do this because we can not be responsible for measurements taken for dresses Distinctions is not ordering. The owners were not present on this day and so the seamstress did agree not knowing the policy. When Labre called she assumed we would take her measurements and I, "Nan" did not know what she was talking about. I am not one of the employess but .....one of the owners! I didn't tell her to come in the first place There was the assumption by her that we offer this service and we infact only take measurements for dresses we are ordering. Labre acted indignant and condescending to the person she thought was the employee. Funny how customers (and she wasn't one) treat the people who work at stores. The nerve that Labre returned to the store the other day and still wanted the seamstress to measure her. By the way, our policies are the same no matter what the race or the ethnicity of the customer.

I just read a review from "Shorty." First, we are NEVER snotty to customers. We have nothing to be snotty about! We are a family owned business and like others in the retail business we want to offer personal attention and advise. Our dresses are not overpriced unless a customer wants to spend 100 dollars on a dress. (Although our constant sale rack has that price) Perhaps the prices of our dresses intimidated the customer. Secondly, we have not written these reviews and sounds like to me that this person has a personal gripe against our store (maybe it is another store owner.) We are not going out of business and there is a reason why we are known nationally and have succeeded for 21 years in business. I would love to hear from this "fictious" person so we could further her complaint in a constructive manner.

After reading the other reviews i think the management and sales associates are writing them. I can not image a 'real' customer saying those things about this store. It was a waste of my time. Terrible service, snoby sales people, rude actually. Dresses are over priced. I am sure they will be out of business soon.... bye bye!! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!! I did however find a great store down in the valley - good selection, great prices. Very helpful sales staff. It is near the new theater..

My search for a mother of the bride dress ended the moment I set foot in Distinctions. The owners and all their sales associates are wonderful! They have a wide selection and style of dresses and they weren't just out to sell me a dress; they were there to make sure I looked my best for my daughter's wedding. And they succeeded. The many complements I received still bring a happy smile to my face. We also found a gorgeous grandmother of the bride dress here. All of our alterations were handled by their seamstress, who does spectacular work. I can't say enough positives about this store. Ladies, make it easy on yourselves and START your search at Distinctions whether it is for a wedding or another special occasion.

I researched styles and designers on the internet and began shopping for my Mother of the Bride Dress at the shops carrying the designers I felt I would look best in. I shopped the East Side and some of St. Louis, ending up at Distinctions. They were helpful in that they listened to what I thought to be my best style and designer. The began bringing many, many dresses out. They knew their styles well. We drifted away from my style and back again ending up very pleased with one choice. I told the lady I did not plan to buy that day as I wanted my daughter to see the choice first. After leaving I decided to drive out to a "highly" recommend bridal shop in Highland, Il. The Highland store had the same dress for $100. more. Needless to say, my daughter and I went back the next day and brought from Distinctions. Distinctions (Nancy) was great to work with, knew their stuff and ended up to be the best price.

My oldest daughter was engaged to married in 2006. I had done some searching online and wanted to find the best dress to wear as MOB. One that I felt good in and would look good on me. Distinctions was located near my daughter's apartment and we went there first. The selection is unmatched anywhere. They have styles that appeal to all ages of MOB. They also feature a variety of designers with a wide price range. Most of their dresses can be ordered in a multitude of colors. I found "the dress" on my first visit to the store but choose to look around. Of course I returned to purchase the dress and never regretted my decision. I got many, many compliments on the gown I wore to the wedding.

My youngest daughter became engaged last year. As she is living in KC area, she wanted to start looking there. I inquired of friends in the KC area to see if they had a Distinctions "type" store anywhere in the city. No one could recommend a store that could in anyway compare with Distinctions. We went to a few stores but had no luck. Sooo, I returned to Distinctions. And -- I had luck again finding "the dress". Many family and friends had asked how I planned to top my dress choice from the first wedding. Well I think, with the help of Distinctions, I was again able to find a dress that will receive many positive comments. Both dresses were very distinct in style and detail. I can't wait to wear the dress in a couple of weeks.

I found the staff to be very helpful and personable. During the visits, including alteration appts, I worked with various staff and they all seemed interested in making sure everything was just right. I would recommend Distinctions to anyone looking for a dress for that special occasion.

I wouldn't recommend this store to my worst enemy!! These people were rude from the second we walked in the door. My mom and I went here to look for a dress for my grandma for my wedding...but there is no way I would want to work with these people. They are arrogant and downright rude!

In my search for the perfect dress for my son's wedding, my first stop was Distinctions. The very first dress I tried on took my breath away but my best friend's advice was to try on as many dresses as I found attractive to find the ideal one for me. I took that advice and probably tried on at least 15 dresses. The saleslady that waited on me that day was very attentive and available to me, even though it was a Saturday and the store was crowded. People were actually waiting in line for dressing rooms. Because this was the first store I visited, I wanted to go to other shops to see what they offered. The saleslady asked if I wanted to buy the dress that day, but I said no. She then told me they were having a huge sale the next day and if I changed my mind, the dress might not still be there. It was the floor sample and they only had one. I replied that if I was meant to have the dress it would still be there the next day. I went on to visit 10 different stores that day, including Nordstrom's and Saks Fifth Avenue. Nothing compared to the dress I tried on at Distinctions! The next day I took the bride, my son and my husband back to show them the dress and ask for their opinions. It was there!!! Not only did they love the dress on me, but I also got it for almost half price! It had beading on the bodice and down one side and some of it was missing, but the store replaced it (at no charge)!!! At my son's wedding on October 4, 2008, every one of my friends, family, and even strangers commented that it was by far the most beautiful mother-of-the-groom dress they had ever seen. I was basking in all the compliments. I have another son getting engaged this month, and you can bet I will be back at Distinctions looking once again for the "perfect" dress for his wedding. Thank you, Distinctions, for everything.

All I have to say about this ridiculous business is that they are rude! They do offer help but i honestly would rather them not offer it if they're going to be rude and snoby about it. I did not and will not buy from them. The only good thing about them is that they have Tony Bowls and Jovani dresses but that is cancelled out by the fact that there way over priced. I can find the same thing at other st. louis stores much cheaper. I would not recommend this store to anyone and I tell all of my friends here at Marquette not to go there!

Funny....I am a salesperson at Distinctions and we had a very quiet day on the day that the complaint about not helping a customer was written. We never talk to each other when there are customers in the store and there were exactly 10 on the day she is talking about. There were three salespeople on the floor and we greeted everyone that walked in the door (possibly more than once) We never allow anyone to enter our store and not greet them or offer to help them unless they are on their phones. We were determined to help everyone on that day "even if they were just looking." Maybe....you were somewhere else?

I would have bought a dress today, but I could not stand the sales ladies. They were really snobby and rude. It was as if they did not have the time to help me, but there was no one else in the store. They gave me the ?look? ? a once up and down to evaluate whether I was worth their time or not Too bad for them, I went elsewhere! Found a pretty little dress down in the valley.

I was actually at Dillards looking for a dress when a woman approached me and suggested that I go to Distinctions to see what they had. It was an easy place to go to and parking was a breeze. I was shocked to see all of the dresses they had there. I found all prices, styles and sizes. The lady that helped me was so friendly and the store was welcoming. I found a dress that I loved and I was actually able to buy it from their inventory. I felt like my saleslady really knew which stlyes looked the best on my "not so perfect" body.
I have an appointment for some minor alterations that need to be done in a week. The "ordeal" that some people refer to when they have to find their perfect mother's dress was made so easy by Distinctions.
I am actually excited to visit the store again and share my excitement with the ladies that helped me.

After spending an exhausting morning looking for a dress for my mom to wear to my wedding we went to a store that many people had suggested we visit. All morning we had gone to places where salespeople greeted us and then basically ignored us. At Distinctions we were shocked at the amount of personal attention we got. The salesperson(who we later found out was the owner) literally selected dresses that she thought might be flattering on my mom. The store has a huge inventory but the owner knew her dresses. Without being rude she definately got a feel for the price we were interested in spending. She made several suggestions about what would be appropriate for my mom to wear and what she thought might not be appropriate. I was surprised that she didn't act more "pushy" about us making a final decision and later she told us that "if you looked great people would want to know where you bought your dress" and also if you looked terrible that people would also want to know "who sold it to you." Measurements were taken with alot of attention. My mom was shown the size chart and was told what size would be ordered and what type of alterations would be expected. As we left Distinctions my mom commented that "she almost felt like a bride who had purchased a wedding gown!"

Cons: none

I should have visited Distinctions first. If only I knew what I would find. Their Sprng dresses are already in
and I found the perfect one. The salespeople were so helpful and really listened to what I was saying. The stock was overwhelming and they had all kinds of colors and sizes. You could tell the salespeople were not on commision and they really helped me see what looked the best on my boday without being pushy. I wish I had gone there first but atleast I had a means to compare what else is out there. The alterations lady was very helpful and we made a few minor changes to the fit. I really think there is a difference in the way these people handle their customers. I didnt have to look around for someone to help me and I thought they were honest in telling me what looked the best on me.

Pros: They are experts in the Mom's dresses and concentrate on that category.

Cons: none

I was in Saint Louis for my daughter's bridal shower. One of the guests suggested that if I hadn't purchased my dress for her wedding that I visit Distinctions. I thought it might be fun to see what Saint Louis stores offered . I am from Chicago and I had every intension of buying my dress there. The minute I walked into Distinctions I was treated like "someone special." I had actually told the salesperson that I was just looking and had no intension of buying anything. Their selection was not to be believed. Their prices varied and there seemed to be something for everyone. I couldnt help but want to try on a few gowns that caught my eye. Even though the store was busy I was given alot of attention and I wasn't told that "everything looked beautiful." I actually ended up trying on a dress that I fell in love with and I ordered it from them in the correct size and the color I wanted. I don't think I would have ever found a store like this where I live. I will tell everyone I know what a great experience I had in Saint Louis finding my dream dress.

I Was About To Cry

Last week I had exhausted every option(or so I thought) trying to find a Mother of The Bride dress. I was at Norstoms and had found nothing that suited me and the lady standing next to me suggested I try looking at Distinctions. I was not from West County and had never heard of this store but gladly listened to her directions. I knew the store closed at 6 so I raced there and found the owner who welcomed me into her store like it was her home. I explained my dilema and she invited me to look at the huge collection of dresses they offered. I noticed the time and the owner told me not to concern myself with the stores hours. She selected atleast 30 dresses for me to try on and patiently helped me to try them on and we evaluated each one
.I am not a skinny person. Infact, I am a 16. The owner was incredibly honest and made me feel like I was the most important person she had ever dealt with. I found the perfect dress and I feel like it makes me look incredible. She offered me ideas of the perfect place to get my undergarments at and we also found the perfect earrings to compliment the dress. It was an experience that I will gladly share with everyone I know. This store took the extra steps to make me totally satisfied as a customer. By the way...I left the store at 7:15 and noticed the posted hours of closing to be 6:OO.

Visited store in Sept 2007, rude sales people, could not get anyone to assist me. They were all chatting, very inappropriately about a customer. They just let me walk out the store without even a 'hi' or a 'bye' Not where I want to shop! Nordstroms is the place to go!

Beware!! May have been great shop once, no longer!!! Terrible service. Huge issues with a dress I purchased for my son's wedding. they measured me and then ordered a dress at least 2 sizes to big. Seamstress was rude and actually threw the pin cushion at me!! The dress looked terrible!! They tried to take the easy way out on the alterations - short cuts. The sales ladies just as rude and condesending. I will never step into that store again and will tell everyone I know. If you think tacky bridal shops are bad, Distinctions is worse - and more expensive!!! I don't mind spending more for good service. The service I received was unexcusable.

This store is unlike any other establishment I have visited in the midwest. The salespeople and owners are honest and truely care about their customers. It is almost like you have entered their home and you are the guest of honor. I just purchased my third mother of the bride dress there
. The selection was phenominal and none of the salespeople/owners were rude at any point during my experience there. They were honest about what looked the best on me and they were never pushy. By the way, I loved the jewlelry that they had. My earring were Swarofski and I had many compliments on them.

This store is definately world class. It is one of the few stores that I know of in the St. Louis area that carries one of a kind of items that you will not find in department store. They always have the latest and trendiest items in the store and a very professional and knowledgable sales staff. Distinctions is where you go for the perfect outfit for that special event or just knocking around on the week-ends.Once you know Distinction's - it's hard to shop anywhere else. Absolute the best customer service, and beautiful selection of merchandise. The owners are the so personable and really get to know each on their cutomers. Whether is clothing or accessories they have it all.... Thanks to Distinctions my friends and I go no where else for our shopping!!!

Cons: I have none!

The selection is incredible. These are gowns you won't find at any bridal-type shop. Found my mother-of-the-groom dress here and couldn't be happier. Unique and beautiful. Pricey but well worth it. Staff can be a little intimidating but don't let that stop you. I'll defintely return and recommend to friends. One small thing - I tried on the amazing dress that I bought, and staff attempted to sell me the very cheap looking jewelry they have to go with it. Seems strange to have such wonderful clothing and such low quality jewelry. By the way, I've found Nordstom to have the best jewelry selection.

Distinctions has a wide selection of Mother-of-the-Bride dresses. Its clothing is classy. The location is good. The salespeople are wonderful at bringing your selections to the fitting rooms and removing the clothes which do not fit.

However, the salespeople behind the desk (owners?) were very curt and rude to their customers. I would not return unless I had exhausted all other options in St. Louis County.
