"I have received my Moiré Parisian Bustle Skirt
& hoop skirt today and I cannot begin to
express both my immense satisfaction and my eternal gratitude. The skirt is so beautiful, and is exactly as pictured on your site. The craftsmanship is phenomenal...
it is my wedding skirt for October 31st! I tried it on and it fits to a tee; the hoop skirt adds just the right amount of "flow"
to the skirt itself. When I am asked about 'what's a good place for gothic clothing' I will certainly say, "GO TO KAMBRIEL.COM!"
Thank you, thank you, thank you...a million times over. Misty"
