If you are a size 1 and like skin tight low cut jeans, then I guess this is the place to go. They don't carry any brands I've heard of, and everything in there looks pretty cheesy. The prices are overinflated. Located in the Coral Square Mall, parking is great. I don't find the staff to be friendly or even helpful. Not a place I recommend.
This is a really great place to get some cool and trendy clothes. They carry some upscale and popular brands, so it is a little on the expensive side. They don't really have alot of sale items, as things usually sell out at regular price! They have some cute accessories that are really cute and should fit your budget. I like going during the week when it's not so busy.
The furniture here is pretty basic, but if you like clean lines and simple style, you will like it. It's not expensive either, but I feel that it also will not last you a lifetime. All in all, you get what you pay for. Prices are a little expensive for what you are getting. The location is ok, I find that it can get pretty busy around rush hour so I tend to stay away. Sales staff is very helpful and can answer all your questions.
Not only do they have a great selection of wedding dresses, but they also have a huge supply of bridesmaids dresses and "mother of the bride" dresses. I also like to go there when I just need a very special occaision dress. They also carry things that you tend to forget like strapless bras, garters and hose. THe staff is very helpful and I enjoy going here. Prices vary from inexpensive to expensive, so they have something for everyone.
As far as surf shops go, this one is nothing special. Nothing about it stands out. They do have a large selection of t-shirts, and they also pretty much always have a sale section that you can find some deals, although not great deals. Parking is never a problem when going during the week. I've only been there on the weekends once, and there were alot of kids just hanging out. Great place to buy gifts for the teen who is into this style of clothing.
This is just another one of your typical surf shops. THey carry all the basics like t-shirts from all the surf brands, as well as sunglasses, board shorts and bathing suits. I find that the staff isn't too friendly or helpful. I think it is mostly a self serve shop and the staff is there to ring up your purchase. Parking is a challenge, as there isn't always alot of spaces. Prices are average. I wouldn't make a special trip here.
Make sure you have ample time when visiting this shop. It is packed full with lots of cool trinkets, home decor, and gift items. They have unique things that you really don't find anywhere else, so if you are shopping for someone that is hard to buy, this is the place to go. Caution about parking: you will never find a spot in front. Prepare to park in a public lot and walk to it. It is on the end of Las Olas. Some things can be pretty expensive.
Beware everyone! This is an adult "themed" store. THey sell alot of sexy lingerie and some of it is pretty racy. They also have a nice selection of adult toys, and I must tell you...there is absolutely no need to be embarresed when you are browsing in this section. THe staff is friendly, and make you feel comfortable. Parking is ok, I like to visit during the weekday afternoons when it's not busy.
This store has pretty cool and unique items. I always like looking for greeting cards here, because I can always find off the wall cards here. The only thing I really don't like is that it is in Riverfront, and I hate parking in that area. If you can spend the day in the area it's not bad as you can get valet parking. I wouldn't make a special trip there. But it is a must visit if you are in the area! The prices are very affordable too. They don't really sell anything expensive...alot of trinkets etc.
I like coming to this cute little shop to look around at all the cool trinkets, etc. You can really spend alot of time going through everything. One thing I did find, however, is that it is a little on the expensive side. If you are not on a budget with buying a gift, you will most certainly find something here. The sales staff is really friendly, and can offer suggestions if you need help. They are also great if you are just there to look (as I usually am!) and will engage in small talk and not try to sell you anything.
