Personal Shopper and new wardrobe

I thought I would start a thread to share my experience going shopping with a personal shopper for a whole new wardrobe.

I am frustrated to see some amazing clothes in tPF, The Wardrobe and the show called What Not To Wear. I can't seem to find those clothes for myself. I feel that somehow I pick the wrong clothing for someone my age and I am fed up.

My shopping limit is very small, because I don't have the money to spend in the first place, but I need clothes for work, at least.

This all started when I moved out of my parents home after they assaulted me. For years I was abused and it was recently that I had the nerve to stand up for myself. I don't have all my clothes and whatever I could grab with me, they are worn out or a bit too small or not appropriate for work.

I want to be taken seriously at work and I want style, just like Nicole Ritchie. I always want to look good whenever I left my new home.

So I want to share my experience, and I thought this would be exciting to share it with you.

I've booked an appointment at Holt Renfew this Saturday. I really can't wait! They don't have personal stylist there. I love the Classic French style, equestrian look, sexy country cowgirl look and Grecian look. I think the French Classic and Grecian would be more appropriate for work.
I spoke to an assistant to the personal shopper and we had a good talk about what I am looking for.

The down side is that I don't have a camera to post my new clothes. I just got a MacBook and I need to learn how to photograph from my laptop. Once I get a lesson on that, I can post my new wardrobe.

I hope you will enjoy my future postings!

Good for you! I look forward to reading about your personal shopper experience and see what kinds of outfit you get.

I'd be curious about getting a personal shopper but am a bit intimidated by the idea.

i used a fashion consultant before and she was really talented. everytime i wear stuff that she picked out, i get tons of compliments. she didn't work for a store or anything though, she just had her own business and flew all over the country to make appointments with people. it was really fun too!!

Bad news! I got a call today asking me if I can rebook because they double booked by accident. I can't come at a later time of the day because I already made other plans for school.
Because I also have plans for the long weekend, I can't go at that time also, so it will have to be in another two weeks. Maybe it is a sign for me not to spend money I don't have:confused1: Anyway, I need clothes and I don't want to make the same mistakes with my purchases again.

I think having a job where you fly around to go shopping is amazing! This person must be well connected and know all the best retail stores!

I can't wait to start my shopping in two weeks.
