||Our Consumer Report On
- I must say I agree with the bad review of Sephora. I
was so excited when it came to my mall (Westfarms in CT), however, I have been nothing but
dissapointed by it! There are approximately 4 salespeople for every one person shopping,
so as a result they will not leave you alone! I find this shocking from a store
whose policy is supposed to be to leave you alone while you look for yourself. Also,
the people who work there are very snobby, and seem to look down upon customers who are
not "chic" enough for them. Finally, and probably most importantly, they
have a very low stock on lots of items. I have been searching for certain Nars
products for months, which they never seem to have. I imagine that Sephora stores
are probably much better in the original locations (NY, for example), but it seems
they have lost sight of the original goal of the store in many locations.
- I also shop at Sephora at Westfarms. I agree that the
store is WAY overstaffed. Too many people walking around with one black glove.
I agree Dierdre, some of the SA's are pretty snobby. Many times I've overheard them
cutting down a customer. There are a couple of helpful and knowledgeable ones though.
There is one SA there who has pretty decent product knowledge, but he likes to try the
products on with you. Yes, with you. I was looking at glosses, and he said, "oh, I
love that color, can I try it on?" I handed it to him and he started putting it on.
He did this more than once!!
Post Fallout Glam Stylings by Aly Wolff-Mills
- Terrific! Terrific! This woman has a brain, spirit, and
skill...a deadly combination that can take her anywhere she wants to go, but then again I
bet she knows that. Please pass along how exciting I think her work is. I'm
from Colorado and enjoyed the website.
Cheers, Shari Vines
P.S. What about a corset with words from ancient plays or mid-century love letters
emblazoned all over it?
- Aly Wolff-Mills' designs are very beautiful. I like the idea that one of her
corsets laces up with electrical wire. Then the whole bit about the fishnets is so
true! Now I really want a few of her pieces!! Someday when I win the big
The Illustrations of Peter DeFreitas
- Excellent, excellent article on illustrator Peter DeFreitas.
I am now a huge fan! I admire fashion illustrators such as Barbara MacGregor
and Jeffery Fulvimari for Stila. As an ex-graphic designer, I hold these artists in
high regard. Mr. DeFreitas, you are fantastic!!! Can't wait to see your
designs on Fresh, as I am also a huge makeup/beauty junkie as well!!!
