I am sorry for taking so long to email you but I wanted to thank you for the all the help and advice I received when visiting your London boutique at the end of February.
I had a very vague idea of what I thought I wanted for the occasion of my middle son's wedding. I was a little overwhelmed by the sheer variety of outfits and I picked around 6 to 7 to try but with the help of Rhoda I narrowed my choice. She was quickly able to suss me out and gave me advice about colour and style and which hats would compliment the outfits.
I shall always remember Rhoda saying ' I don't just want you to like it, I want you to love it'. The outfit I chose was a stunning Teresa Ripoll design together with one of Nigel's hats which would perfectly match the dress.
There was absolutely no pressure whatsoever but the opportunity to try so many different styles together with invaluable advice from Rhoda made it much less stressful. What initially was a little daunting became a lovely experience!
My hat arrived exactly as promised within a few days, it is superb, stunning - so very happy with it. The dress was ordered and would take 5 weeks to arrive. Almost to the day I received a call from Caroline and I later spoke to Cathy about the possibility of alterations should the need arise. Felt so much more reassured after having a chat with them both. Lovely people!
The dress is beautiful! Rhoda was right, the colour is perfect for me!! Her suggestions for colours for shoes and bag were spot on too!
Please pass on my sincere thanks to Rhoda, such a lovely warm person with a great sense of humour, immediately put me at ease, I trusted her throughout.
