I loved it – I really liked the selections. After days of trying on upscale dept. store dresses, I found they all carried the same designers, dresses and only several sizes. Sax wanted me to buy the dress and pay for shipping before I could try it in my size... maybe I'm old school but whatever happend to customer satisfaction! Snooty over there too! Apropos may have that shipping policy, I don't know, but I didn't need to find out because they had plenty to choose from. Barb is very helpful and seems to give honest suggestions and opinions. You are greeted with a beverage and a nice dressing room, complete with shoes, full mirrors and a dressing table. The also have great accessories.
Mother of the bride dress – Mary, at Apropos, is THE BEST. I was looking for a dress for my daughter's wedding. I had tried on about 10 and was down to the last one--one Mary had suggested that I never would have selected. I put it on, walked out to my daughter, and she said, "That's it!" Everyone at the wedding said the dress was gorgeous and I was beautiful. But, on a cruise 6 weeks later, the lead singer/dancer on the ship came up to me and told me what a beautiful dress I had--that she had noticed it the minute I walked on. What a compliment. I recommend this store to everyone--it's pricey, but it's worth it.
Great – "I shopped at Apropos for my senior prom." I thought the place was rather comfortable, they made you feel welcomed and the dresses were amazing! Some of them didnt appeal to my eye at all. "But you just have to know what you prefer for yourself". "Some of the dresses were dresses you see at the grammy's or on celebrities at the red carpet!"The prices were a little high but, if you like dresses its worth it. 'So hey try it, I have'nt been to any other store where they offer you drinks and have comfy rooms as a dressing room'!
Exceptional Service and Stunning Clothing – I have purchased several items from this lovely store. I always get compliments whenever I wear them. The service is impeccable. The ladies know how to make a dress fit perfectly and they are honest about what looks good and what doesn't. Recently I bought a Mandalay dress (as seen on Sharon Stone) from Apropos and felt like a movie star the evening I wore it. I have not found another shop in Tampa that sells Mandalay. I also purchased a Cavalli like dress recently for a Christmas party that was simply breath taking. The prices are very fair for the quality, unique fashions apropos offers. Check it out!!
User review by steenster – I've heard the following words describe this store: "designer," "eclectic," "unique," "classy." However, what I found was enough to make me walk straight out the door. I definitely agree with the review from 2002 titled "Disappointment," and I'd probably estimate that the store looks completely the same from when Mary00001 visited. The fashions are outdated. The store is dusty. The styles are circa 1985. It is cluttered, dark, and anything but "fun and flirty." The only upside is the young lady that greeted me when I walked in, for she was very prompt. Besides that, I felt like I walked into a thrift store filled with feathered boas, beads, and bad dresses. South Tampa's shopping secret? I totally disagree.
South Tampa's Shopping Secret – When it comes to fashion and something extra special, A'propos is the place to shop. Their fashions are not trendy but timeless and elegant. I have yet to purchase an outfit whether for fun casual, business, or evening wear without receiving numerous compliments on my attire. Where did you get that outfit, is how I learned about A'propos! That's why we call it South Tampa's Shopping secret! It's a fun place to shop and the girls are great!
Looking for fine women's apparel with a fun and flirty edge? Apropos is the place. – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
In addition to beautiful pant suits that are perfect for work, Apropos has an amazing selection of feather boas, hats and crystal jewelry. Furry mules and animal print sandals are fun for the feet. Apropos may have Tampa Bay's largest selection of lace clothing as well: Dresses, shirts, pants, scarves--there's lace all over the place here.
One of a Kind
The store is organized by clothing style and color. Flip through the rack of white sleeveless shirts and you'll see that there are barely any duplicates. Although they may vary only slightly, this is still a good place to find something that no one else has.
What You'll Spend
A little table with magazines called "Millionaire" and "Billionaire" make the point. Expect to pay several hundred dollars for a formal dress at Apropos, and a white hat adorned with flowers and netting sells for $640. There's plenty that's affordable, though. Pant suits sell for $145. T-shirts range from $50 to $100. A little feathered bowler hat sells for $50. Beaded and lace scarves go for $80.
