Shopping day with Pilar was part of a birthday gift from my husband. The whole experience was fantastic, Pilar put in lots of effort, and even stayed longer than originally agreed. We visited several designer’s showrooms and in every place I could find something that was as if it was made for me. From what I experienced Pilar made sure she was clear on what I was hoping to get out of the day and took time to understand any likes and dislikes.
Pilar was a pleasure to shop with and a lot of fun so if you feel the need to pamper yourselves and have a personal shopping experience, then I would recommend Pilar very highly. She is a real professional, has a lot of experience and worked hard to tailor the day to specifically meet my needs. As a companion she was perfect – very easy going and full of energy and ideas. I would say my shopping session with Pilar has renewed my interest in clothes and even boosted my confidence. I will definitely use Pilar’s services again and can recommend her to anyone. Once again, thank you for all your help, Pilar!

If you are visiting New York City and love to shop for clothes, then I strongly recommend that you take a shopping tour with Piilar. Firstly I would like to say what a lovely lady she is. Have no fear there is no pushy buying.no pressure at all. You not only get to try on beautifully designed clothes, you also, if you wish get the chance to purchase at extremely discounted prices. Trust me I am a savvy shopper and I could not have purchased what I bought for the amount I spent. Among my haul I had a wonderful leather jacket fitted and made especially for me ( a designer that I know was worth about 3 times what I paid.). You also may be lucky to have the actual designer on hand to help with styling and suggestions.
Don't think twice you will save more on your purchases than it cost to do the tour and have an incredible time in the Garment District of New York.
Thankyou Pilar for a great day, I will be a return client if I ever come to NY again.

My daughter and I spent the afternoon with pilar. She was high energy and so fun to be with. She has great relationships with the designers. She gets to know your style very quickly and makes great use of the time. I wish I had booked more. I am really excited to get my sisters for my next day with pilar. We loved it !

If you want to treat yourself or someone you know to a fun day of VIP shopping in NYC this is an excellent choice! Pilar takes you to designers not accessible for everyone and she plans the visits according to what you are looking for. She is very fun and has a good eye and there is no pressure from her or the designers to shop. The prices vary but mostly the clothes are very affordable.

My daughter and I shopped with Pilar in New York last Monday for my daughters birthday!Pilar was such a wonderful person and made our experience just perfect!! It was like she read our minds as far as what type of clothing we would like and took us to great showrooms! It was so fun to be the only ones in the showrooms and to just take our time and look and try on. And the prices were fabulous!! We had a great day and highly recommend booking Pilar! Such a nice quiet time away from all the hustle and bustle of the city! Thanks Pilar!!
