When my mother in law mentioned "shopping girlfriend" I was so excited. Personal shopping? Showrooms? NYC? How had I never heard of this before? I reached out almost immediately and set up our appointment to go shopping with Pilar- and my expectations we're beyond exceeded! Pilar scheduled several showrooms, all affordable, all gorgeous, it was like she just KNEW! My... More

Since I have shopped with Pilar before, I knew that she would be on time, knowledgeable and tons of fun! You know anyone can book an event, but not everyone possesses what Pilar does and that is the ability to talk to you, size you up (pun intended) and take you to the right designer show rooms. There is no... More

My sister and our daughters were hoping for a unique shopping experience. When we met Pilar we knew it was going to be that and more! Pilar chose showrooms based on our specific wants. We were shown a variety of clothing ranging from $30 maxi dresses to $900 furs. I can't saw enough about how personable and friendly Pilar was!... More

Pilar was fun to be with. She asked me what I was looking for and took me to places that fit what I wanted. Some designers were high end and had quality clothing. Though I didn't buy any purses she took me to a great handbag designer. Also took me to some reasonable sales where I got some great deals.... More

My friend and I were celebrating her 50th bday in NYC. I planned the shopping adventure w/ Pilar. We only had Friday afternoon available to shop. Pilar was very accommodating and made it work for us in spite of a plane delay. We both made purchases and were very pleased! I will be back. Thank-you

I scheduled this experience during a trip to New York with my mother, daughter and sister-in-law. It was fabulous! The day we went was my daughter's 21st birthday. We all had a wonderful time with Pilar! She wanted to know all about us--ages, sizes, etc. so that our shopping experience would be special for each one of us. We all... More

We had a wonderful time spending the day shopping with Pilar on our girls weekend get away in NY!! She took us to several local showrooms and even changed her scheduled showroom plans based on learning more about our taste levels. It was so fun to witness behind the scenes action in the garment district and meet with several of... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
