Ummmm so I bought my Ramona from the JC boutique in east midtown (around Mad & 51) awhile back and wasn't super thrilled with that boutique. The salesgirls were pretty high-pressure and the store itself was uncomfortably hot and so I really just wanted to get my bag and beat a hasty retreat. So this weekend I went to the boutique on the upper east side (around 70-something & Mad) and the sales girls were BEYOND high pressure. I couldn't even look at a shoe for too long before the girl would start talking about how I should buy it and start bringing over similar styles, and I was kind of too irritated to even pick any of them up, much less try any on. The whole experience was AWFUL, WAY WAY beyond anything I've ever experienced in a store before. (Interestingly, I went to Christian Louboutin right afterward and had this lovely, wonderful, completely laid-back shopping experience.) Anyway, I really like JC so if anyone knows of a boutique in or around NYC (I have a car, so nearby is good enough for me) that isn't so high-pressure I would really like to hear about it. OR, if you have a favorite salesgirl at one of the NYC JC boutiques that you can recommend who is more chill, PLEASE give me her name!!
