Shop like a professional personal shopper by avoiding these 5 common shopping mistakes. You’ll save money while avoiding that closet full of clothes but nothing to wear feeling.
- Buying something you don’t have anything to pair with at home – If you don’t already own something to wear it with skip it because it will end up just sitting in your closet. Another option is to buy a complete outfit on the spot.
- Buying the same thing over and over – I see this a lot, a closet full the same thing in the same style, cut or color. One way this can be avoided is by shopping in a variety of different stores or departments don’t head for the same spot every time.
- Buying the wrong cut or color – Just because you like something doesn’t mean it will necessarily work for you. Remember to choose what your purchase based on how good it actually looks on you as well as whether or not it appeals to you visually.
- Buying on impulse – This usually never works. If you know you’re just feeling the rush of shopping and simply buying on impulse instead of need, skip it or put it on hold. Once that rush has passed you’ll usually realize it’s not a smart buy and feel good about not having wasted the money.
- Buying in quantity while skimping on quality – Just because the price looks right doesn’t mean the piece is right. It’s better to have a closet with less items of good quality then a ton of items of lesser quality. It’s okay to buy lower quality items sometimes, but there is a method to selecting which items to spend less on and how to pair them so no one else is the wiser.
One of the biggest challenges I have with new clients is getting them to accept where their body is today. It’s not uncommon for people to live in the past or the future while sabotaging their present image in the process. You may be holding on to clothes in your closet that haven’t fit in years or refuse to invest in new clothes that would make the body you have now look great because you’re waiting to drop those last few pounds, lose that belly pooch or tone up that backside. These goals are great, but putting off looking your best in the present while waiting for these goals to be realized is a huge mistake.
As a personal stylist it’s my job to conceal body flaws and create the illusion of a more balanced figure. Who wouldn’t want this while in the process of attaining the body they feel they should have? Not only will you look better in the process, but now that you’re feeling so much better about yourself you’ll naturally feel more motivated to make those changes.
One of the biggest enjoyments of my job is helping clients learn to accept where their body is in the present and watching the expressions on their faces when they see how great they can look right now.

I’ve seen it time and time again. Women will see their hair stylist every one to six weeks to have their hair cut, straightened or colored, but many have never given the idea of working with a personal stylist a second thought.
Did you know that a session with a personal stylists costs about the same as a visit to the hair salon? However, unlike going to a hair stylist you won’t have to keep going back to a personal stylist. Assuming you’re working with a stylist who knows exactly what they’re doing, not only will you be turned into a more stylish version of yourself, but you’ll also be equipped with the tools and knowledge you need to style yourself on your own.

Yesterday I worked with a client who works in an extremely casual environment and needed personal stylist help developing a comfortable casual wardrobe that was still stylish and pulled together. We focused on simple easy basics that could be easily mixed and matched to maximize her wardrobe, using layering pieces and adding in a few simple accessories to pull it all together. This is also ideal for college students, busy stay-at-home moms and those days when the rest of us just need a super easy pulled together go-to outfit. Here are some of the looks I created for her.
