ILS PARLENT DE NOUS
Alicia was outstanding and far exceeded my expectations. She totally personalizes the experience by getting your preferences in advance and tailoring a shopping experience specific to you In unique, local, Bordeaux stores. From clothes to accessories to hand bags to whatever your need is, she goes above and beyond and even helps negotiate the best price for you within your budget. She always made me feel very comfortable and has a true Eye for fashion and was able to put my outfits together in a way that fit my style. After walking around Bordeaux on my own for 4+ hours trying to find unique clothes, I cannot tell you how much I appreciated Alicia‘s knowledge and expertise of the area to quickly create a wonderful experience. She even help me out with local restaurant recommendations :-). Alicia has a true passion for what she does and I would highly recommend this experience! Mia from Arizona.
Alicia was great, she showed us unique shops that were off the beaten path, she pulled clothes for us to try on that we wouldn’t have normally picked ourselves. It was a fun experiance and we were able to bring back a few great pieces that you would only get in France! Only wished it were longer.
Alicia was extraordinarily helpful and made the shopping experience easy and comfortable. I don’t pay much attention to fashion, but I knew I needed an upgrade. Alicia helped me find pieces flattering for my figure and gave me ideas for what to look for when I buy new clothes in the future. Usually I am overwhelmed when buying clothes and don’t know how to best piece outfits together, so I was very happy when I left with an outfit. The next day I went back to some of the stores we had shopped at to buy other outfits she had helped me pick out.
Alicia was GREAT is the sweetest person! One of the best things about her was that she was direct about our fashion needs but she was not too harsh. That is not an easy thing to do. She was very knowledgable and knew how to dress both my friend (who is tall and thin) and me (average!). She explained what to wear to flatter our bodies. I will be calling her again to help with my fashion choices. It is very important that you get her the information she asks for. She sends out a questionnaire and requests photos. Doing that helped my experience and helped her know what to look for.
Difficile d’être plus charmante et compétente qu’Alicia. Le seul problème j’aurais voulu que ça dure plus longtemps et ce, même si Alicia a prolongé gentiment notre expérience. Bref, mon conjoint et moi avons été vraiment ravis de ces beaux moments passés en sa compagnie. Nous recommandons sans réserve cette expérience avec Alicia à tous ceux et celles qui s’intéressent à la mode ou on envie de conseils vestimentaires.
J’avais envie de nouveauté, un peu d’idées à oser et des quartiers à découvrir. Alicia m’a guidé avec savoir faire, sympathie et confiance à travers les boutiques indépendantes de son cru en fonction de mes goûts et envies. C’était canon. Des avis francs, des conseils adéquats, des boutiques en tous genres et à chaque vitrine un excellent contact avec les vendeurs qui s’est fait naturellement. Je recommande carrément. A great time. New feeling wearing new colors, clothes, hats. The time spent was very appreciated. I was the center of the attention which was intimidating at the beginning and so comfortable at the end. Thank you Alicia
Alicia was fantastic. Not only was she knowledgeable about where to go, but she also knew where to get good deals. We went to high end shops and hidden boutiques alike, where she helped me find presents to bring back home. She was a great conversationalist the entire way and I’m glad she was able to grant me the time.
The shopping experience was great…. I received some fashion ideas from Alicia however the real benefit was that she had me trying on styles and colors I would never have otherwise experienced and I am delighted to have a new perception about what works for me. Joan
Alicia est une jeune femme dynamique passionnée par son métier. Elle nous fait découvrir des endroits non touristiques et de jolies boutiques. Elle est de très bons conseils et cherche pour nous ce qui nous convient le mieux. Je la recommande vivement!
I loved every minute of my time with Alicia the fashionista. For starters, she sends you a questionaire so no time is wasted deciding where to go. We met at an amazing shoe store and she delivered a bonus at the beginning, asking if I wanted to speak French or English. So we started in French and switched as needed. Strolling, discussing color and trying on clothes with no obligation was totally stress- free. I got a jacket and blouse in colors I never would have chosen and love them. If you are ready for a fun, imaginative and confident clothing guru, Alicia s for you.
Alicia offre un bel aperçu des boutiques qui ne sont pas nécessairement sur le « circuit-shopping » décrit dans les guides, c’est tout l’intérêt de cette expérience. Moi-même shoppeuse, j’ai apprécié qu’elle me fasse découvrir des enseignes et marques que je ne trouve pas en Belgique. Le lendemain, j’ai « revisité » certains magasins en prenant tout mon temps. Celles ou ceux qui aiment le coaching-shopping apprécieront!
Myself and my mum had a wonderful time with Alicia on one of our last days in Bordeaux. Neither of us had done anything like this before and thought it would be fun. Alicia is so nice, charismatic and very stylish but, most importantly, passionate about style and finding the right fit and colour for us. We felt very special having clothes already laid out and chosen for us and having special treatment with changes rooms and coffee from the lovely independent boutiques and shops! Not only did we both come away with lots of lovely items, but we also picked up loads of tips on how to shop in a more considered and effective way to suit our shape, complexion and wardrobes. I would highly recommend Alicia’s shopping experience whether you’re a fashion novice or fashion fiend. We were both on a high afterwards and went for a nice glass of Crémant in the Maison du Vin afterwards to celebrate (also recommended!).
I bought this as a gift for my wife on our trip to Bordeaux, and she loved it! Here is her review: “Delightful Fashionista experience! Whenever I visit Europe, especially chic France, I often want to browse stores for unique clothing to add to my wardrobe as a memento. However, language and European sizes often throw me for a loop! This is where finding Alicia on Air BNB Experiences saved the day! I easily scheduled a meeting time and day that worked for me. After a brief online interview about my shopping preferences we were off to a really fun, easy and economical shopping experience. Also, if you’re shopping during SOLDES – Alicia will help you find great deals at very chic boutiques. She is so easy to work with and gets your style quickly. In two hours I walked away with more than I had even imagined! Plus Bordeaux is a great city to shop in – far easier than Paris. You will not be disappointed – a once in a lifetime experience with a fun, delightful fashionista. By the way – she works for you – not the stores. You’re in for a special treat – so treat yourself!”
I ordered this shopping experience for my wife and here is her own comment: Alicia is a very positive sunny person and she really helped me a lot. Since she’s a clothes designer herself she know how to underline your advantages. She helped me to try the dress I would never pay attention to, but surprisingly it fits perfect and let’s me feel far more feminine and charming what I missed a lot in my hectic everyday life. Apart from bringing me to the shops I would never find myself Alicia shared recommendations regarding the color of my clothes, clothing style etc. I’m happy with my experience with Alicia and would highly recommend her.“. Many thanks to Alicia for a lot of fun and support during shopping from me, I am glad to see my wife being happy 😉
C’était un cadeau pour ma chérie et elle a adoré.
Not only is Alicia charming and enthusiastic but her knowledge is fantastic. We’d asked her to show us boutiques etc which were independent, unique and original and she certainly delivered. So we got exactly what we wanted, a quick guide to the city’s style gems, which we would never have found on our own, coupled with lots of laughs and intelligent conversation. This was a really, really great thing to do. Thank you so much Alicia and we wish you all the very best for the future.
Invité à différents mariages cet été, j’avais besoin de conseil pour faire les bons choix. Après avoir expliqué mes attentes, Alicia a élaboré pour moi un parcours sur-mesure. D’un naturel plutôt sûr de moi et de mes goûts, elle a su toutefois m’amener vers des styles que je n’aurai pas osé forcément essayé. Cette expérience est passée à toute vitesse et le résultat est là !
I really enjoyed meeting and spending time with Alicia. She was really helpful in her choice of stores and fashion advice. She listened to what i was looking for and was full of excellent advice. I purchased 2 garments that are great. Wonderful trip and a passionate fashion expert. Highly recommended.
Au top ! Alicia est très à l’écoute et sait répondre aux besoins du client. Ponctuelle et dynamique, je recommande vivement !
