Mark Ingram has  a MOB salon now, but not stuffy or matronly and they have great service

i think saks is a good call. i imagine that there are some bridal salons that also do dresses for moms, like kleinfeld’s and the bridal atelier. good luck!

Kleinfelds (i know, i know) has an entire collection of evening gowns, which are lovely and not matronly at all.  In fact, one of the dresses I nearly bought was also for sale in their evening wear department in black (a Romona Keveza).  And they do have great service.

Also – make at appointment at Saks if you intend to visit their bridal salon for dresses, they don’t encourage walk-ins.  If you just want to shop their “ready to wear” you should be fine. 

Oh – and there isn’t a Nordstrom’s in the city, the closest one is out on LI.  Try the 5th ave stores – Saks, Bloomies, Bergdorf’s and Neiman’s.

Try Barney’s, they will def. have something different and good customer service!  I got my rehearsal dinner dress there and loved it!  Also, Bergdorf’s but it can be very pricey 🙁

i don’t have any suggestions, as i’m from fl. this post just reminded me of my mob shopping experience…. where i sent my mom off to nyc to shop with my sister/moh! my sister now hates me a little for it because my mom was very difficult, but maybe that’s my suggestion. send her off with someone else to do the dirty work!
