“My new image after a fantastic day of shopping with Pilar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Recently I visited New York from New Zealand and I had a fantastic time shopping with Pilar one on one. She really listened to what I was looking for and took me to places that suited me perfectly. We were having so much fun that she even went over time. After the few hours we spent together, I felt like I had known Pilar forever.

I got everything that I was looking for plus some and struggled back to my hotel with all my bags. I even got to meet a couple of the Designers which was a unique experience. The prices were fantastic and the clothes were beautifully tailored and styled. I love the new image I have created with the clothes I bought.

I have been telling everyone I talk to how great an experience this was and I wanted you all to know too that this is definitely worth the investment. The money i saved with the great prices more than covered Pilars fee.

This review is long overdue (June 2011) I surprised my wife with a trip to NYC for our 10th anniversary. I thought this would be an excellent surprise for my fashion loving wife. It was better than my expectations. In addition to being an amazing experience (to visit fashion showrooms we would have never been able to visit) the deals were wonderful and so was Pilar's company. Definitely a "must-do" for any husband who has a wife who loves to shop.

Pilar was very easy to contact and had great information about the city. Thank you, Pilar! We will visit with you again.

“Must do NYC experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Last week I went on my 4th or 5th shopping trip with Pilar and it never fails to disappoint. Her main priority is to make sure you're taken care of and have a great experience. I was able to specify which designer show rooms I wanted to visit and was really pleased with some of the pieces I found and purchased at wholesale prices. I make a habit now to always book a tour with Pilar on every trip to NYC.

“Great shopping experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

I've been to NYC a number of times but never experienced anything like this. A friend of mine and I went to the city for a long weekend and while planning our trip I found Pilar's information online. Pilar has a great relationship with a variety of designers, taking us to a number of unique showrooms. I'm looking forward to my next trip!! Thank you, Pilar, for the awesome experience:)
