First visit, first impression: WOW! The selection is stupendous, the customer service is impeccable, and the store design is breathtaking. This upscale-boutique is the perfect place to find work or casual-wear. I met the owner when I was with my mom the other day. What a kind and knowledgeable gentleman -- never without a smile on his face. Some may say Shaw is pricey, but the designers they have are worth every penny. They have a huge sale section too, which has great deals on the designers you love! This is the store you go to if you want everyone you run into to compliment your outfit. A friend of mine told me they will be featured in the September issue of Baltimore style and I can't wait to see it! The only place near the area that is even remotely similar is Relish in G'Town. Needless to say this is a store Nordstrom can't even beat!

I have been here twice now and have made out like a bandit on both accounts. It is so much fun to shop here because every time, I walk away with something I wouldn’t normally have picked for myself, and it ends up being one of my most worn outfits. Ray and Tobi make the experience so enjoyable. I do my normal cruise around and then I just let them take over!! They both have impeccable taste and bring items I missed to my attention! They also show me how to wear funky pieces! There really are not are not any great stores to shop in Baltimore for women’s clothing so thank goodness this place has it all, great clothing/shoes and great people with great taste!! Cannot wait for my next shopping outing!
