This little shop doesn't look like much from the outside, but is hiding some real treasures inside. I was spending the day with a friend shopping for a wedding dress, and was a little disappointed from our previous search at House of Fashion II. I really didn't want to spend thousands, and while I'm not impoverished by any means, I am a down to earth person and don't like all the hoighty toighty BS and just want a small, simple wedding and a dress that reflects that while still being unique and beautiful. Let's just say House of Fashion did not deliver. Yolanda is the owner of Haute House Couture, and greeted us warmly upon entering. She showed genuine interest in us and finding me the perfect dress. She showed us every dress and told us all about it - unlike at other places, where they ask you how much you want to spend and laugh in your face if it isn't thousands and thousands. She has lots of brand new dresses and some consignment dresses, most of which were never even worn. I had such a fun time in her intimate little shop trying on dresses, and she never made us feel rushed or pressured in anyway. She let us try just about every dress on, and was with us every step of the way. She's got dresses from $200 on up, and the $200-$400 dollar dresses are just as beautiful as the more expensive ones. She really chooses quality dresses to display in her small shop. There are some other casual dresses and clothes, as well as shoes, purses and jewelry, and some really beautiful prom, evening and Quinceañera dresses. If she doesn't have just what you want, she will try and get it for you, and keep you updated on what she has. She also has an awesome seamstress who is very, very reasonably priced and has a very fast turn around time. No waiting months and months to get your clothes back! We're talking 2 weeks tops! So, anyway, I found the perfect dress, even though it was a little more than I wanted to spend, it was a consignment dress that would retail well over $1,000 brand new. I was able to do a payment plan with her and the dress came to $599. Which is an absolute steal compared to the dresses we looked at elsewhere, especially considering the quality of the dress. I love this place! Give it a try and I think you'll love it too. I will be having my bride's maids all come here for their dresses, and I think when it's time for my friend to tie the knot she will be coming to get her dress here too!
