Ambria Miscia

Ambria pines for a moment in closets all over the world and describes just how fabulous it was to wear J.Lo's dress.

The scene with Simon Doonan was very interesting, but obviously, it is not a triumph for our store. Initially, the consignor expressed that she did not want to give us the dresses if we were going to sell them for less than $100 each, seeing as two did not have a label. After Simon came in and reiterated the value of the Carolina Herrera dress, the girl had another change of heart and did not want to let it go. This can be very frustrating. When someone walks into our store and says they want us to sell something of great value for them, we go to a lot of trouble to bring in an expert to authenticate and value the item. In a case like this, where the girl claimed she had gone to the actual factory where they make "samples" of Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera dresses, we can't afford to just throw a price on a dress. It can ruin our reputation. So it was amazing that Simon took time out of his day to come in and look at the dress, but on the downside, I was disappointed that she decided against leaving not only the Carolina Herrera, but the other two dresses that were still intricately made although they had no labels. Sad face.
