jessica05 Aneita's Alterations & Sew Forth

had heard good things so I took my wedding dress to her - she did not listen to a thing I said about what I wanted it to hang on me, how I wanted the train to hook up to the back for dancing or anything. I took it to her 4 months in advance, she apparently kept putting it to the side for "more important" things; finally had me come in for my first fitting since dropping it off 1 month before my date. Told me she would have done 2 weeks prior for $150 - finally had it "done" 2 days before for almost $300 (I had gone to her in first place to save $ over David's Bridal where I bought the dress) - and I still hated the way it looked, but at that point had no time to get it fixed elsewhere! Aneita's Alterations is the only thing that went wrong with my wedding and almost 2 months after the event, still almost brings me to tears when I think about how my dress fit! I was not able to get pictures of it from the back because you could see my undergarments and the train button looked horrible. Some of her stitching started coming out during the wedding so in some pictures there is a weird bulge on my chest and I could actually feel the threads pulling! I would not trust her with anything valuable or meaningful to you! It seemed to me she did not actually have the know how to be working on wedding dresses, but did not tell me this and when I would tell her it wasn't feeling right she ignored my feelings and basically said well that's how it goes. On my final fitting when undergarments were still showing she tried to blame it on the undergarment - 1) It was the undergarment I was wearing when I bought the dress and alteration lady at David's Bridal said it would work great! 2) It was the same undergarment I had worn to every fitting, so she should have said something sooner and I maybe could have found a different one if that truly was the issue. IF I could change anything about my wedding it would be taking my dress to Aneita!

jessica05 Aberdeen Apartments

Been living here 2 years; as far as the apartment itself I like it. Decent sized was in good condition when we moved in, though we did have to clean some gum out of the carpet ourselves. It is way different then show unit - there are NOT ceiling fans in every room like advertised; it has a full solid wall between kitchen and living room, unlike the half wall shown; the "free tanning, gym, and pool" are across town in another complex and have inconvenient hours and staff can't even give you good directions. Moved into this apartment from out of town, took me first year to even find the other complex with gym, then was disappointed to only see about 2 machines and hours like 9-6 or something that is not convenient for anyone with a job. Unfortunately ever encounter we have had with Office Staff has been horrible; Lease runs out at end of June, then will begin calling you about twice a week in October trying to get you to sign a new lease - they will offer all sorts of promotions for signing a lease, but when you finally go in to do it they say oh sorry that is for new move ins only. They threaten that if you don't renew lease by March they can't guarantee you will stay in the same unit. They told me I could not put my bicycle out by the parking lot chained to the railings as it is unsightly and might attract thieves, but people have lawn ornaments, clotheslines, dog poop and everything else everywhere! We set coolers out on our deck in preparation of a weekend trip one evening, by the next day we had a note on door that it needed to be stored out of sight within 24 hours or they would "store it for us"; again other patios have clotheslines, pet cages, millions of kids toys, etc and we get nailed for 2 coolers! I got to the office at 4:55 to pick up a package UPS had left, girl was locking door (they close at 5), I hollered told her I just needed package it would only take 2 minutes, she informed me she had management permission to lock up 10 minutes early if no one was in there so she was leaving, proceeded to lock door in front of me and walk out. They do not give good notice they will be entering apartment; I will be in and out of my apartment multiple times after 5pm in evenings, then next morning when I go to leave for work at 6am will find note they will be in apartment that day and I need to lock my pets up - has made me late for work multiple times! We have pictures and notes of condition of apartment when we moved in, so I hope we have chance to get deposit back when we move out, but I don't have my hopes high based on other experiences.
