Dilara is the shop I call my "secret store". In 2001, it won an award from the Village Voice for "Best Couture Imitations for Under $30", which peaked my interest. I've been shopping there ever since. Most of its clothing is cut for those skinny girls who don’t have any curves, but inevitably I manage to find one item every month that a) looks good on me b) is totally of the style moment and c) nobody else has. I almost hesitate to put this review up because I’m worried about that last bit, but I guess it’s time to let the secret out.
