I never realized how many Jewish thirteen year-olds I knew until I was invited to more than fifteen Bar/Bat Mitzvahs last spring alone! With the arrival of each colorful and beautifully scripted invitation my mind would race faster and faster: WHAT TO WEAR?
If you’re anything like me then you probably ask yourself that same question with every trip to your mailbox! The key is not to show up wearing the same dress as your friend sitting at the table next to you and definitely not the same dress as your husband’s high school girlfriend. You want to stand out from the crowd, feel good about yourself, look amazing and NOT empty your bank account in the process.
I have the solution and it’s not a trip to the outlets at Woodbury Commons! It’s my upscale consignment boutique, Stark Style. Stark Style’s boutique is filled with designer dresses and gowns that are perfect for any Bar or Bat Mitzvah dress code and my pieces silently say, “This is not from the rack at Bloomingdale’s.”
Here are some samples:
This Dolce and Gabanna would sell for $400
This brown sequin dress from Amanda Wakeley would sell for $275
This long sleeve black dress is a Gucci and would sell for $600
This long printed dress is Cavalli and $400
The long silver gown above is a Marc Bauwer gown for $300
I carry only top condition, gently worn and many new pieces with tags from top designers. My dress selection ranges in sizes (0-12) and styles and prices are at least 80% off retail. I also have an incredible selection of shoes and bags that cannot be matched when it comes to price! I cater to women from all over Long Island, New Jersey, New York City, Westchester and Connecticut, and confidentiality and professionalism are of utmost importance to me.
You can join my Facebook group Stark Style or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I bring in new merchandise several times a week and my hours are flexible. I’m always happy to accommodate your schedule. It’s my goal for every one of my clients to show up dressed beautifully at their next affair and for all heads to turn.
Call me to find yourself a one-of-a-kind head-turner for your next Bar or Bat Mitzvah (or for your next few)!
