Personal service is part of what makes clothing special at Ivey Abitz. Here’s an example:
Recently a groom’s mother emailed us at Ivey Abitz to help put together a new ensemble for her son’s wedding.
A brief email exchange helped her narrow down which designs would work best together based on her favourites.
This left only the fabric selections.
Knowing this was an important event that required extra special planning, we put together a custom fabric swatch book to help her visualize the possibilities.
The personalized fabric swatch book confirmed her decision and helped her feel that much more confident.
Wearing an Ivey Abitz ensemble made just for her, we are sure she’ll be showered with compliments about her ensemble at the wedding – and not just because she’s the mother of the groom.
What’s the best personal service your wardrobe ever had?
We invite you to experience great personal service at Ivey Abitz.

I would like to think I’m pretty good at putting outfits together, but in reality I’m probably hit or miss. When my outfit is a good one it’s pretty great but some of my misses would make me eligible for that TV show with the secret footage.
One huge mistake is not following the advice from fashion gurus. Buy an outfit – not pieces. And what do I do? I buy pieces. I know I’m not alone. Many women do this. You end up with a great skirt but nothing really fabulous to wear with it. So not only does the skirt languish in your closet, but by not wearing it you have spent your money in vain.
And you say you don’t have anything to wear. Now you know why.
No more bits and pieces of clothing for me. This spring and summer would be different. Yes, I vowed. But now what should I do? After looking at the Ivey Abitz website for like the millionth time I turned to my new best friend. Yes. I decided my new style guru would help me look great and pulled together. After looking at the website and picking some of my favorites I complied a list and sent it to Cynthia Ivey Abitz.
Through email we talked about my choices, fabrics, my likes and dislikes and of course my budget. Then she sent me a list of what looked like a wonderful start to building a useful and pulled together look that I can wear for years.
By doing this I would have the basics to look great this spring and summer. But there is flexibility in this list. I originally wanted the Camilla Dress in a winter fabric but decided that a Baedeker Shirt would help me fill in gaps in my wardrobe better. Not only will it always go with my Ivey Abitz pieces but it also works well with my existing clothing.
The point is I have a guide now. I know if I purchase something off my list (even though I really want everything) it will work. And that’s what I need in my life. Stuff that works.

Not only are the clothing items fabulous at Ivey Abitz, so is the customer service. I feel like customer service and Cynthia are my new best friends.
Looking at the designs over and over I noticed that there were some velvets pictured on the item pages. I sent an email to customer service and got a speedy reply assuring me that there would be velvets offered very soon.
Boy and what velvets they are. I just couldn’t decide what to order but did manage to make a decision. A Lydia Layering Jacket in berry (french silk) velvet and a Cozette Skirt in denim.
Cynthia contacted me over a weekend just prior to my jacket going into production to ask if I wanted it lined. I chose not to, but I loved that she would ask.
I had them shipped to my work address, and when they arrived, ladies were gathered around to see what I got. I felt like the lucky women who get flowers delivered to the office.
When I opened the boxes (did I tell you how much I love the tissue paper and boxes) people were like “Oh my – how beautiful.”
I had to write immediately and let them know – well done.
I like being the object of envy…
