This shop is completely out of place in the Little 5 Points area, where most everything is shoddy, garish and very youth oriented. When I stepped in Rene Rene, I was immediately made to feel welcome by e sales person and then Rene, the designer took over, helping me find clothes that were suitable for my age and size. Most of the clothing, however, is either S/M or M/L and are knits. The S/M is supposed to fit 4-8. I am normally a 4, but very short. Not everything fit. However, with a lot of personal attention from Rene, I found 2 dresses that were flattering. Both were on sale. There was a third that needed taking in, and she offered it to me for $30 off as an alterations allowance. The designs were simple, a bit retro. Some of her knit fabric choices are a bit too lightweight and clingy (perhaps inexpensive) and don't drape as well as one would like. But the workmanship is good quality.
Pros: Good service, good prices, unusual merchandise
Cons: parking difficult, no range of sizes, would prefer a different neighborhood
