    What an amazing boutique! I LOVE that Ellebay is local & makes dresses using local fabrics. The designer & her mom are a wonderful team and made my appointment very enjoyable. I LOVE every dress in the store. Gorgeous!

        In short, all gowns are absolutely beautiful and well crafted. I am so excited for my fitting that is approaching! Management is also friendly and extremely knowledgeable! My experience here was worth every penny.

    I stumbled upon this website because I had been helping my daughter look for prom dresses, I loved the designs and the simplicity of every thing. Sadly I was VERY upset over how my daughter was treated over the phone. My daughter had called today and I was very disappointed in the way she was spoken to. She had asked about a simple polyester chiffon dress she wanted to be made and someone simply told her sorry all our dresses are over $1000 when she had a price limit of $600 for a prom dress she was only wearing once! The person on the phone hadn’t even explained anything.

      First of all, thank you so much for your compliments on our dress designs. It’s something we’re passionate about, and it’s such a blessing that people appreciate what we do.

      I apologize for the experience. Weekends during our high season are always fully booked, and as we are a small business, we don’t have a secretary to take our calls. This often means answering calls during our client appointments, so it’s difficult to be on the phone for very long. This is no excuse, and I do apologize – we try our very best to be as helpful as possible!

      As for cost, do keep in mind that we are a custom dress shop, and all of our gowns are made by two people. We haven’t hired additional seamstresses because we want quality to be the focus, and haven’t found anybody that meets our standards. Because of this, we are only able to make a set amount of gowns per season, and because of demand we have to price our gowns accordingly. Additionally, we are a bridal shop, and all of our gowns are bridal priced. We have gowns that aren’t traditionally “wedding” (and thus, can be considered suitable for graduation) because I love colour, and want to keep creative and interested.

      If you’d like to set up a time to discuss this further, I’d be more than happy to talk. As well, I’m able to respond to emails quite well, as I do them after the shop’s closed. You can reach me directly at ellebaybridal@gmail.com

      All the best,

    Perhaps you will tweak them and submit them to article sites.
    These are three very simple but grueling and time consuming steps that will definitely help you to
    earn money through your fashion blog.

  23. Hi. I’m looking for a good site that offers creative writing prompts or creative writing exercises since I heard that anyone who is serious about writing should do creative writing exercises. So does anyone know of a good one?.

  24. I have a MacBook computer and I want my pictures that are on my computer to be on my Motorola Razr 2 v9. I have a memory card and a memory card adapter. When I put the card in the adapter, the computer recognizes it. And the pictures that I have on my phone can transfer to the computer with no problem. But the pictures on my computer won’t transfer to my phone. All that shows up is a big red “x” on a black screen. Am I doing something wrong? The phone company is AT&T..

    I’ve heard you can make money off of advertisers. Is it really a significant enough amount to make it worth it? Or does the real benefit in blogging come from the exposure you get? I’m a bellydancer and I dance at private parties and events. How could I use a blog to get more business? I’ve heard about people who have products to sell using blogs, but I don’t have a “product”, just me!.
