Last week Mango opened on 34th Street, and on my first visit I tried on four dresses and a pair of light pink pointed-toed heels. I left wanting four dresses and a pair of light pink pointed-toed heels.
|Yes, I'm looking right at you and thinking "Kate Middleton dress" ($79.90).|
|Probably not a Duchess of Cambridge dress ($79.90).|
The orange shift is $69.90. Look at the pretty neckline! And the chinoiserie print!
On the right I'm practicing my variation on the Wendy Brandes pose. The blue plaid is $119.90 and the pink shoes (in all photos) were around $100. Unfortunately, there's a 39 and maybe one other size left in the pink shoes.
General store feelings? My pre-opening Mango excitement was well warranted. After trying on clothes I tweeted in response to @MangoPie (no relation to Mango) that I was in dress and accessory heaven. But when I first walked into the store I was getting Ghost of Lane Bryant Past in the surrounding decor. Luckily I was immediately overcome by the surrounding dresses and their price tags and soon could only think MANGO. Also, the bag and shoe selection is pretty fantastic. So yes, a big hoo-rah to have Mango open on 34th Street. It's now top on my list for event shopping, next to Macy's Impulse, Zara, and H&M.
