"Dear Smitten Team:
September 2, 2012 , I found myself in the lovely town of Newburyport . Of course , after my first visit to Smitten last month and purchase of a stunning lavender maxi dress by Last Tango, the day wouldn't be complete without another visit . Because my last visit was so memorable with an exceptionally knowledgeable and superior staff, stopping by again was a must ! I wasn't disappointed . In fact , I was greetted and recognized, which made me feel welcomed and appreciated as a returning client . I was immediatly drawn to the trendy yet classic autumn merchandise . I was assisited by Alana ,who was superb with her selections and listening to my wishes . Alana was the consumate professional adding personal recommendations in conjuctions with excellent styling and fashion advice . Alana acknowledged several other clients with a smile and advice . At no point during my rather lengthy visit did I feel neglected . Alana made me feel like a queen ! At one point she called her mother and partner to assist . It is truly refreshing to shop or even browse in a lovely European styled boutique as Smitten and feel welcomed and not judged by your body image or dress size . It would be remiss of me to not acknowledge Davita , who assisted me on my first visit . I recall when I was hesitant regarding the fit of the maxi dress , Davita was sincere and pointed out how the drapping and cut of the dress complimented my figure . Smitten certainly rivals the boutiques on Newbury Street in Boston and frankly , the boutiques I have frequented in Italy . Smitten is a hidden jewel and shouldn't be missed. I am extremely pleased with my purchases and look forward to my next visit.
Thank you again for a wonderful experience .
