Say “Yes” to The Dress

There are so many nuances—other than dress style and body shape—that factor in to a bride finally saying “yes” to the dress. Here are a few ideas to help make yours a little easier to find:

1. Know your budget. There’s nothing more heart-wrenching than falling in love with a dress you can’t afford. When you arrive at the salon, make sure you’re upfront with your consultant about how much you want—and can afford—to spend.

2. Bring a friend. But don’t bring too many friends. While a second opinion from several well-meaning friends can definitely help the process, the opinion of too many can be frustrating.

3. Know your style. You may love a drop-waist dress, but that doesn’t mean it will flatter your figure. Part of finding the perfect dress is knowing what looks nice on your body type. For more on finding your bridal gown style, go here.

4. Trust your consultant. We know you have ideas about what you like and what you don’t, but remember: Consultants help brides find their dream dresses every day. Some salons, like ours, even have a customer service guarantee, meaning, we do the utmost to make sure you find your perfect fit.

Ladies Who Lead: Rachel Hoeing

Rachel Hoeing, co-founder of Triad Moms On Main, is known in Winston and all over the Triad for the website she runs with friend and partner, Katie Mooseburger—Triad Moms on Main.  At Triad Moms on Main, Rachel, Katie, and other guest bloggers share their words of wisdom on parenting and life in the Triad.  As Rachel was being outfitted and was waiting to be photographed, we chatted with her about her life as a mother and as a female small business owner and community leader.

To keep her popular website running, Rachel works full time seeking out guest bloggers,

managing her sales team, promoting local events and businesses, and most importantly, sharing the ups and downs of motherhood with others. The blog’s topics include food, shopping, local events, parks and recreation, education, travel, family, and a just-for-moms section.  Rachel believes in sharing stories with one another, as the tagline of the site suggests “Parenthood can be the mother of all rides. So why travel alone?”

Though her company is very successful, work is not at the center of her life. She says that although she has many goals, “being the best home-maker, wife, and  parent that I can be has certainly moved to the top of my list.” The importance of family in her life was emphasized when her parents passed away and she realized “just how much they truly did influence [her].”  To give to her children as much as her parents gave her is what she wants to achieve most.

Her mother is also the driving force behind her support of Teal Toes for Ovarian Cancer (www.tealtoes.org). Her mother battled with Ovarian cancer for years, and now Rachel advocates for this organization that encourages women to paint their toes teal, especially during the month of September, to raise awareness for the disease that 14,500 women die from each year.  “…Unfortunately it is not easy to detect… and we don’t hear much about this type of cancer.  I pray daily that we will someday find a cure.”

The focus of her life is then on her husband, Kevin, and children, Jake (9) and Anna (7).  But when she’s not spending time with her family or at work, you’ll probably find her enjoying a favorite guilty pleasure: Bravo TV. “If it’s not on Bravo, I am probably not watching it.” Or… apparently… beat boxing “I think I can beat box.  Everyone else probably thinks I am spitting in the microphone.”

Thank you Rachel for sharing your time with us and being a Lady Who Leads in the community!

Nitsa’s – Expect the Exceptional

Over 40 years ago in 1964, Nitsa Bambalis opened her first store on downtown Winston-Salem’s Fourth Street. News of Nitsa’s Fourth Street Tailors and Alterations spread quickly

Grand Opening of Stratford

Invitation for our Grand Opening in 1995!

in the community, and it soon became known as the go-to place in Winston-Salem for alterations and custom clothing. While we certainly haven’t outgrown our alteration roots—it’s still an important part of our store today—we knew that everything good must grow.

In 1979, we moved our shop to Stratford Road and tweaked the name to Nitsa’s Apparel and Alterations. After several moves along Stratford, Nitsa’s now resides at Stratford place—10,000 square feet of the finest couture gowns, boutique apparel, and accessories, and cosmetics. Our sister store sits in Charlotte’s Phillips Place and provides the Queen City’s residents with simply the best selection of bridal gowns, social, and cocktail dresses.

Even though Nitsa’s boasts more square footage—and locations—these days, our commitment to quality and fit hasn’t changed. Craftsmanship and honesty, impeccable taste, and integrity are still things we practice every day, and personal service is just that: personal. That’s why a stop at Nitsa’s isn’t just a simple shopping trip; it’s an experience, and an exceptional experience at that. From your initial entry into the store, through your fittings and alterations and even your exit, we make sure that you not only look great, but that you feel great about your purchase, too. And isn’t that what boutique experience is all about?
