Personal Shopper vs. Style Boxes

Tired of wearing the.pngI love to bake!

In this day in age when you can get a box of clothing and accessories delivered to your door, why would you choose a personal shopper? Well, simply put, because style is personal and your shopping experience should be too. I’ve done my research to see what these boxes were all about because it’s a genius idea! I did find out that the way I work with my clients doesn’t compare. 


Did you know that those style box services are limited to what they can offer you? They work with specific brands because they own everything. Imagine a boutique sending you a box every month, you are buying into their label which means you may love their clothes but you are stuck with their look. As a personal shopper, I can take you anywhere, and not just big department stores, I can shop from boutiques, and send you suggestions from specialty online shops too. This gives you a tailored made wardrobe that fits your style, budget, and life!


I find that my clients that experiment with the box service end up with lots of pieces that don’t really go together, or they don’t really like. There are a few they love but still don’t know how to put it all together. 

The box isn’t taking into account everything that you already have in your closet. When your personal shopper comes to your house, they are taking inventory of what you have enough of, what you gravitate to, what the missing pieces are, and with that info we create a list for shopping. This kind of special attention to detail and goal oriented shopping saves you time, money, and the hassle of making returns and figuring it all out on your own. Who has time for that anymore?


My main goal as a personal shopper is to help you look and feel your best. It’s all about honesty between us and finding the right pieces. My team and I are consistently working on ideas to make the service key. I have no quotas to fill and no brands to push. I do partner up to share my favorites with you through events or videos, I to stay up to date with new designers and products to share with you. My most measurable metric is your happiness!!


Although computers can do an impressive job at selecting clothing, they miss one most important thing – YOU! It doesn’t know your body, lifestyle, personality, and current closet situation and how to best go about helping you. A personal shopper gets to know you, give you options to help solve your closet problems without having you collect more items without fixing the problem you have at hand which may be you don’t know your style or don’t like anything you’ve been purchasing and don’t know what to get. 

We get the opportunity to communicate together and make sure we solve the problem, which a monthly box cannot do for you.

I want to know, what was your experience with working with a style box or a personal shopper? What was beneficial or what did you want more of?
