Tips to Help You Say “YES” to Your Prom Dress!

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, How To, Life, Prom, Shopping in Buffalo, Uncategorized

Prom is only a few weeks away and now you are down to crunch time on finding your perfect dress! Dress shopping shouldn’t be stressful and you can make the experience more enjoyable with these helpful tips I’ve come up with! Remember that there is the perfect dress out there for everyone, so don’t feel like you have to settle! Don’t lose hope or get stressed out, stay determined and you will find your dream dress! Happy prom shopping fashionistas, xoxo.

First, have a game plan! Map out the shops you plan on visiting that day, don’t just wing it. You might get lucky and find your dream dress at the first stop, but if not, have a backup plan.

Second, bring someone you trust! I cannot go shopping without my best friend because I know she will always be honest. It doesn’t matter who your shopping buddy is, it is always just nice to have someone with you. So grab your best friend, mother, grandparent, or sibling and have a fun day of shopping!

Third, don’t make it complicated! If something isn’t fitting properly then maybe it isn’t meant to be. If your prom is quickly approaching and don’t have time to get alterations done you’ll have to look for a dress that fits your body well. Make sure you can eat, dance and enjoy your prom night without having to worry about your dress malfunctioning!

Score Designer Prom Dress Look A-likes for Less!!

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, How To, Life, Prom, Shopping in Buffalo, Uncategorized

One of the things I love about working in fashion is seeing all the gorgeous designs and styles each prom season. This year has been one of my favorites so far because the designers focused on both simple and extravagant styles. Two of the designers that I am obsessing over this year is Sherri Hill and Jovani but they do cost a pretty penny! TT New York carries a line called Clarisse that sells styles similar to Sherri Hill and Jovani at a much more affordable price! (Not to mention Clarisse is sold exclusively at TT New York so you can’t find then anywhere else in WNY!) Through all of my research I have come across a few styles that are almost duplicate to what we carry in stock! I listed a few of them below as just an example to show you the similarities!

Black Prom Dresses That Will Make You Stand Out

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, How To, Life, Prom, Shopping in Buffalo, Uncategorized

Black will always be one of our best-selling colors for prom and TT New York has a bunch in stock! Below I listed the ones that I am obsessed with and also some of our best sellers! I am personally in love with all of the simple and elegant ones, but they are all so beautiful no matter what style you’re looking for. If you really wanted to make the dresses pop, then I recommend accessorizing with a red lipstick and some red heels!

Why you should shop at TT New York for Prom 2017!

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Life, Prom, Shopping in Buffalo, Uncategorized

Attention all high school girls! Prom season is officially in full swing and that means TT New York has already been super busy with prom shoppers! You may be thinking that it is too early to go out and purchase your prom dress, but now is the perfect time! One of the things I love about TT New York is that they have exclusive rights to their designers, which means you won’t find their designs at any other dress shop! TT New York also does event tracking for all the Buffalo, Rochester, Canadian and other surrounding schools! What does event tracking mean? It means that they keep track of every dress sold to each school and guarantee not to double sell the same dress! Shop early and lock in your dress for your school!

Floral Prints for 2017

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, Life, Prom, Shopping in Buffalo, Uncategorized

Happy 2017 fashionistas! As our 2017 prom season quickly approaches, we have noticed an old trend making a comeback! Floral prints are back in style and we have to admit, they are gorgeous! The patterns are a mix of both old and new with a fun twist that I think everyone will love! This year we are stepping out of the box and getting a lot of unique and unusual styles in! If you love diversity and standing out in a crowd, then one of these floral dresses may be perfect for you! Here are some of the 2017 styles we will be getting in that have that unique floral pattern! DON’T FORGET!! TT New York does Prom Tracking which ensures you will be the only one at your prom in your dress! You won’t ever have to worry about being duplicated when shopping with us! Happy New Year and happy shopping! Xoxo

 

My Favorite Braided Hairstyles

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in DIY, Fashion, Prom, Uncategorized

My latest obsession is braided hairstyles because they are so elegant and beautiful! You can turn a simple ponytail into a stylish french braid in just a few minutes to create a whole new look! I have extremely thick hair and doing braids keep everything together all day long. If you want to switch up your look, try out some of these styles I put together for you! xoxox

braid

Braided Up-dos: I love this look if you are trying to show off an amazing back on a dress or a shirt. The bun keeps you cool and the braid just adds a little extra pizzazz to the look. It is the perfect look for a hot and humid day out!

56e19ae40cac175b3d731e303744b1690488d96813bcc6a5fc1c2fa6055b04f80787ebeb955b57a7edba5c6397812ecb

Braided Headbands: If you don’t want to put your hair completely up, think about doing braided bangs! I hate having my hair in my face all night while dancing and taking pictures so braiding my bangs eliminates that problem!

670e4151d01e704d89b2ab7122d211c1 531df3e9d42908497eb09456121f8ae0  fe3ddd113cb5cc1330cf6fdd62c6b6b1

Braided Ponytail: Perfect for anything with a one shoulder or if you just want to keep all your hair together. I think side braids are perfect to wear for any occasion. A little trick that I love to do is french braid my hair while wet so once it dries you have beautiful beach waves without the damage of a curler!

Five Reasons Why You Should Prom Shop Early

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, How To, Prom, Shopping in Buffalo, Uncategorized

In the world of dress boutiques prom season is in full swing! Yet some mothers and daughters think now is just the time to browse the racks and try on styles. Well, I am going to share a secret with you, SHOP EARLY. You may think that February is way too early to even think about buying a prom gown, but in reality you are right on track. The best advise I can give any girl who is looking for their prom dress is that shopping early really does pay off in the end. Here are 5 reasons why shopping early is the best way to go. Happy prom shopping, xoxo.

  1. Ordering Process. One thing prom shoppers need to remember is how long the ordering process does take. A standard special order can take anywhere from 4-12 weeks to arrive. Some dresses are in stock in our warehouse and are able to be shipped ASAP but others need to be made from scratch and sent through international shipping which could take up to 12 weeks. Shopping months before prom ensures your dress will arrive with time to spare! Waiting until the last minute could result in you having to buy a dress off the floor that may be too big and would need to have it sized down to fit properly (aka more cost in alterations).
  2. Alterations. On top of waiting 4-12 weeks for your special order to arrive, you also need to think about having alterations done. Alterations can take an additional 2-4 weeks depending on how many dresses are in line to be altered. The last thing you want to do is pick up your dress the week of your prom because you waited to long to purchase a gown. Buying early means having your alterations done way before prom.
  3. Event Tracking. TT New York does prom tracking, which means we do not double sell a dress to a school. Basically you won’t have to worry about a “who wore it better” on your prom night! If you wait until April or May to find your dress for your prom in June, there will be a bunch of dresses that were already purchased from your school that you can’t even try on. Who wants to fall in love with a dress and then be told they can’t buy it? That is why if you shop early, you get the first pick!
  4. Less stress! Nothing is more stressful than being weeks away from prom and not having a gown. On top of getting the tuxedo matched, renting a limo, finding a place to get pictures taken, and so on, you don’t need the added stress of finding a gown. Purchasing a dress you love months in advance allows you to focus on all the other aspects of prom that need planning!
  5. You get first pick on all the new styles! Throughout prom season, styles will get discontinued or become back ordered and you won’t have to worry about that if you shop early. 1. You get first pick on all the brand new arrivals. 2. You are ensured that you can still get your dream dress in.

So what happens if you live out of town and you see a dress from our website that is THE ONE? Not to worry, I have you covered with this blog! If making the trip to Buffalo to shop through our in-stock collection isn’t going to work for you, you can simply order your gown through our amazing Customer Service Department! Here are the simple and easy steps to take to order a dress off of our website:

IMG_3817

 

Step 1: Once you pick out a gown you would like to order, click the picture to get the dress style number. (Once you click on the picture it will enlarge on your computer screen. Underneath the picture will be a text box with the different sizes and colors the dress comes in, the style number will be 4-5 numbers long and located at the very beginning of the text box)

Step 2: Contact our Customer Service Department either online or by telephone.  

1. Online through our website.  You can locate the “CONTACT” button at the top or bottom of our website which will direct you to our “Contact Form”.  Here is where you will fill out your contact information and then in the “message box”, please state the style number, size and the color of the dress you are interested in ordering. One of our customer service representatives will then contact you to complete your order.

2. By telephone. You can call our toll free number at 1-877-369-3438 weekdays from 10AM to 6PM EST.

They will go over all of the ordering details for you and also answer any questions that you may have! (At the very bottom of the blog, I posted some commonly asked questions with answers for you!) Once you are ready to order, our representative will gather your payment information and process the order.

Before your order is shipped out to you, you will be contacted to let you know it is on its way! Once shipped, the dress should arrive to your home between 3-7 business days depending on your location. All of our shipped dresses are tracked to ensure they arrive to you safely. Any questions or concerns during the ordering process can be answered by your customer service representative.

 

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q: After I place my order how long will it take to be shipped out?

A: Once your order has been completed, we will check and see if your dress is currently in stock. If the dress is available it will be shipped out in 1-3 business days. In the event that the size or color you order is temporarily sold out, unavailable, or back-ordered, we will contact you with further information on an estimated ship date. All orders are guaranteed to be in by your wear date.

Q: How long will it take to arrive to my home once it is shipped?

A: Depending on your location, most shipments take 3-7 business days to arrive. If you are an International customer, it may take a longer due to the possibility of it being held up at customs.

Q: Will I have to pay an additional fee if I order online?

A: No, but you may be required to pay a shipping cost depending on your location. (International shoppers will automatically be required to pay shipping due to customs and international shipping)

Q: What method of payments can I use for online purchases?

A: We happily accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. (We do not keep credit card information on file, your payment information will be shredded after purchase) 

Q: How will I know which size to order?

A: All of our different designers have separate sizing charts with the appropriate bust, waist, and hips measurements. We will go off of your measurements and the designers to get you the best fit gown. (Please remember, you must fit the biggest part of your body. For example, if you have bigger hips and a smaller bust, we will order the correct size to fit your hips. Alterations may be required to make smaller areas fit correctly.)

Q: Can I ask for the tracking number so I can keep track of the gown too?

A: Of course! Once you receive confirmation that your dress is about to be shipped out, ask the representative to please pass along the tracking number so you can keep track as well.

Q: Can I order a dress online and pick it up at your Boulevard Mall location?

A: Absolutely! If you choose to have a your order sent to the Boulevard Mall to pick up just let the representative know you would like to direct the shipment to our store location and not your home. Once your dress arrives on location a sales rep will call you. Your dress will then be put into our Paid-in-Full section and you can pick it up at your convenience.
