Customer Comments


When I received the news that two of my daughters were to be married this year I was panicking….WHERE WILL I FIND TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT OUTFITS BEFITTING THE MOTHER OF THE BRIDE!!!!!?? But coming out to Smith & Boston and finding two separate outfits at two different times without any fuss or bother was just fantastic. If you remember, as soon as I set eyes on both outfits I knew they were for me, …no trying on dozens of outfits and being disappointed. You and your staff made the whole process painless both times. I had lots of positive comments on both outfits. A bonus was that I was able to get my matching pearl necklace and earrings at the same time from your store. If I had not already got my handbag I could have got one there too. Thank you!


“Thank you so much for the lovely silk jacket I bought to wear at our daughter’s wedding. I had many compliments about it. Thank you also for your helpful advice about shoes, clutch and jewellery. I really appreciated the time you took with me.I had a wonderful day, and the jacket looked good and felt comfortable for the entire time. Thank you.”
