Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?
A. I have always been passionate and interested in the fashion industry. Starting as a teen, I worked in a women's clothing boutique. I loved seeing the customers expression and confidence when they wore something that looked amazing on them. After that I was hooked, and knew this was what I wanted to do the rest of my life!
Q. What types of customers have you worked with?
A. Most often, we help get our clients develop a well rounded wardrobe. We start with the essentials and move into trendier items. During a wardrobe makeover, we help our clients pair down their current wardrobe only leaving updated items that fit well. With our personal shopping services, we help our clients fill in the gaps with items that are functional and will integrate easily with what they have. Personal shopping with our clients is a great way to help explain why a garment fits or doesn't. We advise you on what cut and shapes work for you based on your body type. Our clients often tell us "I would of never picked this out on my own!"
Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A. Personal shoppers aren't just for the rich and famous. My Chicago Stylist works with clients on every budget. We take pride in helping our customers rework their current wardrobe to look and feel their best. There is no pressure to go out and buy a brand new wardrobe! Adding a few key pieces can make all the difference!
