Where do I start? This was my first experience prom dress shopping, and it almost ruined my excitement.
Parrot fa Nalia is in a rundown, hole-in-the-wall building. I was already second guessing going inside just seeing it.
There's no room to move inside. The entire store is packed with nothing but plastic covered dresses, so much that you can't even get through to look at them. It's a freaking mess. All the dresses on the floor look as though they've been there a few years. Not to mention the smell, which is like stepping into a moldy basement. There's a hallway for dressing rooms (the doors are a curtain that cover barely half the doorway) and there is absolutely no place to family or friends to view the dress you're trying on.
The staff is pushy, rude, and extremely in-your-face. I was with my boyfriend and mom, who were standing outside the dressing room hallway. One of the associates physically pushed my boyfriend to a chair and told him to stay there. While trying on my dress, associates would randomly open the curtain and walk in and there is NOT enough room for 2 people in the tiny cubicles. After trying on one dress, I left because there wasn't anything there I was looking for. When asked if I was only trying on one dress, the helper in the dressing room immediately became defensive and argumentative. On our way out, two MORE associates stopped us and were astounded that we were leaving and were very rude and stand-offish about it. Not to mention that you can hear them talking about other girls trying things on, or people in the main room, basically just gossiping away.
I wouldn't go back if you paid me and give this zero stars if I could. The store is gross, the dresses look years old, and the staff is incredibly rude and only care about your money (their dresses are extremely overpriced for the quality. The zipper broke the first time I unzipped it.) I suppose everyone has different experiences, but if you choose to shop here, Good Luck!
