I was uncertain how successful a combined shopping trip for me and my daughter could be (me - late 40s, fairly conservative dress sense, her - 16, ripped skinny jeans, band tour t shirts and vans/converse) but Pilar just gets people. She's obviously very skilled at reading people so she quickly picked up my daughter's likes and dislikes. In the... More

For her birthday, I booked my wife a shopping tour with Pilar and we had the best time. Pilar is an amazing, friendly, and enthusiastic person and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. After emailing with her a few times prior to our trip, she was able to book visits to designers that were a great fit for my... More

I have shopped with Pilar a couple of times and referred others. We are picky ladies and always pleased with Pilar as she takes the time to know your style and matches the... More

We came to NYC from Melbourne Australia to experience the shopping and the sights and sounds of the Big Apple! We did 5th Avenue, Macy's, Bergman Goodman and Barneys but nothing compared to our personal shopping tour with Pilar. This 'pocket rocket' classy lady, Pilar introduced us to the 'real deal' designers. The ones that show at NY fashion week,... More

My husband booked this for me as a surprise gift so when I met Pilar she didn't have a lot of information to go off of. However, she still managed to significantly enhance my wardrobe:) If you are interested in fashion, curious about how designers work or just in need of some new pieces at very good prices I would...

This is the first time I have ever used a personal shopper so didn't really know what to expect. Pilar was good at holding my hand throughout the day - she's a good conversationalist so there was no awkward moments which was good given it was just the two of us. I really felt like she went beyond the standard... More

Pilar was a great shopping companion, she was definitely very knowledgeable about the various designer stores and planned the duration of our visit perfectly starting off with a couple of mid range designers and then finishing off with a fun but low priced store with great merchandise where you could splurge and experiment with various outfits without blowing the budget....

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
