Don’t take our word for it. Read some reviews!

"Our tween daughter has a number of events coming up and needed some party dresses. We wanted something original but also dresses that were reasonably priced. Amalya found us some lovely shops on the UWS that fit the bill. We ended up purchasing four dresses. Amalya was great with our daughter - friendly, personable and fun. She connected right away. I appreciated that she was honest in her assessment of what our daughter was trying on - none of that "it all looks great" that we've experienced as adult shoppers! She also "coached" our daughter about what would suit her and what would make sense for the type of events she will be attending. All in all a great experience."

"I had the most fun on my shopping trip with Amalya! My husband booked a few hours of vintage shopping in SoHo for me for my birthday and it was fantastic!!! I will definitely use them again!!!"

"I worked with Amalya to help me figure out where to take my 3 teenage girls to find fun and unique clothing shops. She quickly picked up on what we were looking for and planned an outing for us. She met us in the Bowery area which was a perfect spot between SOHO, the East Village and NoLita. Amalya directed us to a variety of wonderful storefronts including, Anya Ponorovskaya, where we met the proprietors who make what I would call semi-custom dresses using their own patterns and fabrics from their inventory. She also walked us over to a sample sale where my daughters purchased Holland & Sherry Bespoke cashmere sweaters at 70% off."
