Inappropriate and Rude – I drove a long way because this shop had a brand I was seeking.
The owner and 2 women were talking and laughing...long and loud. When the owner was paraphrasing a private conversation they were having (which I did not ask for, she was yelling over people in the store to tell me for some weird reason). I said that I was just there to shop and didn't need to hear their business. The owner said in a very snotty way, well I guess you don't need to then, goodbye. (and looked towards the door)
I was flabbergasted.
Is it not okay to shop these days? Or is it a requirement to be gossipy teenagers to buy a bra? The owner should have helped me find what I was looking for vs. kicking me out because I did not want to gossip.
Beautiful store and Great service!! Highly recommended! – I just spent 2 hours in that shop today, and I can say that I will be back!!! There are so many good things about this store: great selection of lingerie and nighties, perfumes and jewelery! Plus the salespersons are really helpful and so nice! They also provide fitting which is really good when you're not too sure about your size, and their bras goes up to H cup ( which is much higher than triple D...!) and in pretty embroidered bras!!
If you're looking for nursing bras, I would definitely recommend A LA FOLIE since they carry this brand that does really cute lacy bras and nighties.
The best part to me, as I'm a Jewelery lover, is their Jamie joseph selection and Nava Zahavi's! The pieces are incredible and 24KGold. So if you're looking for something unique, that's where you should go!
Now that I know they exist, they will surely see me a lot more!!
The only lingerie store worth visitin in the East Bay. – I love lingerie, but had a hard time finding stores with a good selection here in the bay area. (I just moved back from NYC where my favorite lingerie shop is). A La Folie is the only store outside of San Francisco that I've found with a beautiful selection, lovely staff (and owner), and a comfortable setting. The shop stocks great European brands (some of my favorites like Huit, Prima Donna, Wolford, ID Sarierri) in a wide range of sizes. They have larger sizes which is often hard to find in small boutiques. They also have good basics. You will pay a pretty penny for it all, but it's definitely worth it! This will be my new lingerie destination!
Great underwear in the East Bay – Underwear for ladies addicted to lingerie. This store also has some fun items for those who are too shy to go adult stores. Very intimate way to shop for intimate items. Cotton, silk and lace- something for everyone!
lovely boutique – This boudoir-style lingerie boutique is a must stop. A La Folie is quite possibly the creme de la creme of lingerie destinations in the Bay Area. Shop owner Nafissa gives loving attention to each item chosen as she adds to her gorgeous collection. The shop offers exceptional quality designs and impeccable customer service. This is not just any lingerie. Some of the bras have such exquisite detailing you will want to let some show!
Wonderful Intimate Shopping in Oakland – I stumbled upon this store a few weeks ago and cant stop thinking about my experience there. The staff was knowledgeable and warm and the shop was deliciously sexy and sophisticated. They also carry a lot of sizes and styles for a more voluptuous figure. I had a wonderful browse there - this is a one of a kind for Oakland.
I love A La Folie!!!!!! – This is the most relaxed shoping I have ever done. The fine lingerie, the warm decor and the oh so sweet parfum....which you got me hooked on Nafissa! If you have not been to A La Folie, its worth the trip! Nafissa is very helpful and very sweet!
I love my lingerie and my parfum's Thank you Nafissa! All the best for the New Year!
Delicious and Tempting – A La Folie is my guilty pleasure. I could spend hours there and I would love to buy everthing in the whole store. The customer service that I have gotten from Nafissa has been extraordinary. It is very refreshing to find an upscale lingerie store without the upscale attitude. The selection and quality of the products is wonderful, especially for women with larger cup and bra sizes. Most lingerie shops cater to women with A, B and C cups, while A La Folie has beautiful bras for women with D and DD cups. Before I found this shop I wanted a breast reduction so I could buy beautiful bras, NOT ANYMORE!! I highly reccomend A La Folie!
Delicieuse! – Never before has there been the most delictable and colorful European lingerie offered by a hip, young, sophisticated owner. The shop has an approachable French decor with a personable, friendly touch. For the first time in my life I was perfectly fitted for my bras. No more stuffy lingerie shops! Every girl will love getting these treats and every guy will love giving them. Say good-bye to Victoria Secrets. Only the most discerning tastes will find satisfaction.
