Awesome boutique on 31st- Ladies you will love it!
« on: July 09, 2007, 08:07:13 PM »
So I finally stopped in to Blooming Company (after walking by and curious for months). I was quite impressed with the help I received (the co-owner found 8 dresses for me to try on that were my size). He wasn't pushy at all (unlike the in your face sales tactics of the express or any other big chain). I left with 2 sundresses, each under 40 dollars (and trust me I wanted the other 6, but I had to control myself). I left very satisfied and received a coupon for my next purchase. Ladies, if you need a cute outfit, and don't want to break the bank, I suggest you stop in! (22-75 31st street, under the L-train near ditmars) They also have nice accessories/shoes :-)

I keep peeking in their window because the accessories are so eye-catching, but have yet to go in there.  Thanks for the info.  Were the dresses made by the owner?

Ur welcome, and I know- I've been peeking in there for months w/o actually going in. No, they aren't made by the owner- they shop at other boutiques and I think get a few things from France (but most of their stuff is from US he said).  :-)

Don't you mean the N/W?

Yeah, the n/w ( I always refer to it as the L train for some reason- b/c it is elevated)

Well my dad grew up here in nyc( Da Bronx actually) and he always called all the elevated trains the EL, but according to him the real El was the Third Avenue EL. Go figure.

I'm from Chicago and actually, it can be written as "El" or "L."

Makes sense. I wonder if there's anywhere besides the L train in NYC where it's exclusively called "L" and not "el".

Born & raised here & only 32, I call the elevated train the "EL".  I also reffer to 30th ave. as "Grand Ave."...........Guess I grew up w/ the Senior Astorian Crowd........(Think this is turning into a new Thread).... . :mrgreen:

The term 'el' came from elevated, so I guess the N or W qualify to be referred to as the 'el'.
