Let me be your Diane von Furstenberg personal shopper!

I am a Personal Shopper specializing in Diane von Furstenberg clothing. Since DvF's design studio is here in NYC, I have the best access to sizes, prints and styles; plus I get actual runway pieces and one-of-a-kind designs that never hit stores! I have been doing this for over 5 years and am very knowlegable about her collections. This blog will be a place where you can see what items I have in stock, which can then be purchased using PayPal or money order. Come in and take a look!

I also have a few, very limited gowns from past seasons, like the Aiscelina, tuxedo wrap, sequined Antoinette wrap, Nocturnal View Anoinette wrap, Asta, Jules, etc. Feel free to contact me if you would like to hear about those! They are generally sizes US2, US4 or US6.

If you see something you like, please contact me to discuss sizing and/or to work out details such as shipping preference, total price and payment options (email: FashionForwardStore@hotmail.com). All items available for pick-up in NYC. Shipping cost is additional and I prefer USPS Priority with Delivery Confirmation for US addresses and Global Express for International addresses.Cash, PayPal, Western Union, USD money orders and USD bank drafts accepted. Credit/debit PayPal payments have an additional 5% surcharge added to cover the fees that PayPal assesses, so if you can pay by non-credit/non-debit card PayPal, you can avoid having to pay that additional 5% surcharge.

In most cases, items which are special-ordered for you are not returnable. However, exceptions are certainly possible if arrangements are made in advance. It usually depends on which DvF source we're ordering your items from; each place has a different policy and if I am not bound by a strict return policy, I can extend the same flexibility to you. Postage is not refundable and any special delivery costs for special order is usually also not refundable. Finally, all sale items are eligible for store credit only. In the event an item is mistakenly misrepresented or shipped, it is eligible for a full refund and half the postage will also be reimbursed.

Wonder Woman!!!!!!

WONDER WOMAN!!

I have to admit that, growing up, there was probably no one I wanted to be more than Wonder Woman. I believe that my very first store-bought Halloween costume as indeed Wonder Woman. And (though this may betray my age), I had Wonder Woman Underoos, to boot!



Imagine my great delight when my favorite designer released a Wonder Woman inspired collection. Ah, yet another reason to love DvF!

Here are just a few highlights from this whimsical collection. Enjoy!!
