I had an amazing experience at LA Collection this year. I graduated high school this year, and was extremely apprehensive about buying a grad dress. I have had body image issues my entire life, and have always hated shopping because of that. When my mother and I came to LA Collection, we were greeted and told to look around. We found many dresses that looked good on the rack, but not so great on me. The sales associate asked to help us, and when I told her vaguely what I wanted my dress to look like, she came back with three options and one of them was the one I ended up purchasing. She smiled at me, and actually ended up giving it to us 20% off because it was a 2016, and the last of its kind. We had to go in for alterations three times, and I felt so bad because each time I found something new that I wanted slightly changed. The kind alterations woman never stopped smiling, and talked with me about my day, even when on the second alteration appointment I broke down in tears because I thought I looked ugly in my dress. On the third and final day, I came in, and put it on. It was so perfect. She had gone the extra mile to make sure I felt beautiful in my dress, and I can never thank her enough for being so patient, creative, and kind. I got tons of compliments on my dress, and I recommend LA Collections to anyone who asks.
