I have to say that my experience with Gesinee's so far has been GREAT!
My mom and I went into the shop back in August for an appointment with Francine, one of the consultants there. I went in not knowing what kind of dress I wanted or should consider for my body type.
Francine took a few minutes and asked me general questions about materials and styles that I might like and gave me the chance to voice my concerns about my body type and what I would consider "problem areas".
We were guided over to the racks of dresses in my size (and I must say, there is a HUGE selection!) and Francine advised that we should just start looking through the racks and pull out any dresses that I liked and would like to try on.
While my mom & I slowly started looking through dresses, Francine was busy flipping through the rack and pulled out a couple to show me. One I really liked off the rack and agreed to try on, the other, I was ready to dismiss instantly because it was a style that I hadn't considered and really didn't think would be flattering on my frame. But, I decided to try it on anyway so that I can just prove to myself and Francine that we could rule out that style.
I tried on a few dresses that I pulled off the rack myself and did find 1 or 2 that I liked. Then I tried on the dress that I was supposed to dismiss and was taken by surprise as Francine bustled me up.
I was a bit in shock as I stood in the mirror and saw how flattering this dress was on me! All I could say was, "I'm surprised by this dress!" I walked out of the fitting room to show my mom and she was just speachless! And trust me, that NEVER happens!
My mom's eyes welled up with tears and she reached into her purse and handed her credit card to Francine!
I am so grateful to Francine and the expert eye she had for picking the perfect dress for my body type!
She was very friendly and pleasurable to work with. And even though I think we went over our scheduled time for the appointment, she was extremely patient and I never felt like I was being rushed out of the shop.
We were advised that my dress could take up to 5 months to receive because it was a "Special Edition". But, to my surprise again, less than 3 months later, Gesinee's called to inform me that my dress has arrived!
I have an appointment this Friday to try on and pick up my dress and I expect to leave there a very happy customer!
