Celebrities and working professionals who are strapped for time usually enlist in the service of a personal shopper. Are you tired of your wardrobe? Can’t find anything to wear? You too, can benefit from a personal shopper. How you ask? Well, Personal shoppers are at department stores everywhere – Neiman Marcus, Sakes Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Macy’s, and Bloomingdales to name a few.
There are two types of personal shoppers: in-store shoppers, who generally don’t charge a fee but pull clothing only from their store, and independent consultants, who shop everywhere but charge a fee for their services. Either type you choose, Personal shoppers are known to be miracle workers and time savers. You can hire someone individually to handle your fashion wardrobe or you can just go to your local store and set an appointment. Yes that easy!
Let’s say if you are going on a vacation and you are too busy with work, or with children; you can have someone pick out a variety of things such as wardrobe, sunglasses, watches, accessories, shoes, etc. You can do the groundwork by phone letting your personal shopper know what you like and usually arrive for that first appointment to find a dressing room full of clothing pulled for you. It’s like having your own personal stylist. You’re not obligated to buy anything when you take the department store route. Personal shoppers who don’t work for stores can either take you shopping or bring things to your home. So there are so many options and places you can go to get that personal shopper experience.
Personal shoppers aren’t your cup of tea? Not enough time to set up an appointment? Try talking with a sales associate in that department; engage and ask questions. You may find your personal shopper right there WITHOUT setting an appointment. Always try to go during the not so busy times, like mornings, and try to avoid weekends.
