- Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best. John C. Maxwell
Hire a Personal Shopper
There are situations when it's worth spending money to save time. Especially during the hectic months before a wedding, major trip or other special event, a personal shopper can free you to focus on other matters that require your attention.
Hiring a personal shopper or image consultant doesn't necessarily mean you have to start a wardrobe from scratch, which could be cost-prohibitive. A personal shopper can sort through your existing wardrobe, adding only items that fill in gaps or otherwise update and enhance your look. In addition, hiring a personal buyer may even save you money in the long run, or pay for itself, by keeping you from impulse or unflattering purchases.
Hone your style
A personal shopper can help you discover what looks best on you and can help you build a wardrobe of major pieces and accessories that reflect your personal style. An image consultant may offer even more services, such as coaching on communication and behavior skills.
Create a unified look
Calling in a professional to help buy clothing and accessories for your wedding party will ensure a coherent overall look. Everyone involved wants to look their very best, from the bride and groom to the bridesmaids and mothers of the couple. She will streamline the search and cut down on the number of dresses you need to try on before finding the right one within your budget.
Get an edge
There are situations when a skilled personal shopper can make a real difference. For example, if you have a job interview lined up, a professional can help you make the best possible impression, directing you to the color and cut of clothing that creates the image you want to portray.
