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....

Pilar is wonderful! My teen daughter, 25 year old niece, sister and I had unique shopping experience. Pilar was very eager to determine what our personal styles and likes/dislikes were. We thoroughly enjoyed every expect of the tour. The only negative part of the tour is that it ended too soon. I will definitely do this tour again!

I have shopped in NYC a number of times before, and know from experience that you can waste a lot of time and energy looking for what you want. This time I decided to go with some 'expert' help, and ended up having a wonderful - and very successful - one on one shopping adventure with Pilar! I was specifically... More

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

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.
