I was hoping some of you may be able to offer reviews/experiences if you've been to Kleinfeld's. Yesterday was my 2nd trip there and I seriously felt underwhelmed and am definitely missing this whole "Kleinfeld experience" thing eveyone talks about..
My first trip there was about a month ago, and I truely felt I found "the dress." This was also my very first time trying on dresses period. I went back yesterday after trying some places in Jersey. I found a strong contender at Park Ave bridal but had to go back and try on the one at Kleinfeld again before deciding. When I tried the dress on again, I didn't feel the same "WOW ..this is it!" feeling. I asked my consultant if she could pull more and she told me they didn't have anything else that matched what I was looking for (I want a blingy bodice, full princess-type skirt and my price point is 4-5k). I also told her to use her expertise and pull stuff she thinks would look good on me. She literally pulled the same exact 2 dresses she pulled last time. That's all they have that fit my criteria, she claimed.
My consultant was older, kinda lagged around the store, bs-ing with people and acted very blaze. I thought she was funny, but it felt more like socializing than finding a dress. She told me to help her pull stuff but I don't know what the dresses look like in those plastic bags!
Can it be that Kleinfeld's really has NOTHING else? Isn't this the creme de la creme of bridal salons with the biggest selection around?? Does it only cater to people who have a 10k+ budget and are looking for some crazy-a$$ Pnina Tornai getup?
Should I just move on ..or try for another appointment with a different consultant?
My wedding is in October so I am cutting it close lol.
