Secrets to Online ShoppingWhen personal shopping with clients I always spend many hours pre-shopping, both online and in-store, to ensure that the items I select are in the right size, style and price range. This eliminates extra legwork and browsing during our shopping session. Now, with online shopping, I offer the same pre-shopping, but I send you the list of specific items, with links, via email. You can shop online or in-store – or a combination of both – all at your leisure. This way you get the right range of items, at the right price – to suit just YOU! This applies to both wardrobe or interior styling. With Interior styling I have access to Trade-pricing with a long list of quality furniture and homeware suppliers, so you get the added bonus of purchasing items not available in retails stores, or retail store items at wholesale prices.

How Does It Work?

Online Personal Shopping - The 5 Steps

After detailed client profiling, I set to work sourcing online. You can then click each link and order the item online (at any time of the day or night, even in your PJs – stylish PJs of course) or visit the store in person to try on the selection. You can order all, some or none – the choice is yours.

Many of my Personal Styling clients have ordered all of the items, then arrange a Skype Styling session to decide what to keep or return. Others buy a support package and go into the stores and message me with pics in their outfits – for a thumbs up or thumbs down/second opinion. My Interior Styling clients do the same, sometimes visiting suppliers with me to sit on sofas and chairs and see the quality and comfort first-hand.

How Many Options?

With a huge range of local and international retailers and suppliers, the options are endless. And you can choose to have as little or as much of my assistance as you require. The more you keep in touch the better, as it allows me to really get a feel for your preferences and concerns and to continue looking for the perfect items.

How Long Does It Take?

At the outset, we determine your objectives, timelines and budget. The process depends on the scope of your needs but a minimum of 2 hours will have your wardrobe filled with many lovely pieces and your eyes opened to a whole new style chosen just for you by your own Personal Stylist! For Interior Styling – after the approval of mood boards and an agreed-upon style direction – you will be sent Spec-sheets with a selection of items chosen for you. Most of the time offering access to Style Counsel Trade pricing to make the selection even sweeter!
