Online personal shoppers

My friend Emily sent me fantastic info about an online personal shopping service, called (logically) Live Personal Shoppers, that can be a great resource when you’re trying to find that specific perfect item, or, you don’t know what you’re looking for and need a little help.

This is what she said,”Live Personal Shoppers. What could be better? Case in point. I need an LBD (Little Black Dress) for a friend’s wedding next summer. I am hard to fit…So I told my LPS (Live Personal Shopper), via chat, I need something simple, black, few embellishments (if any) for someone who is 6 feet tall and a size 18. Instantly, I had a dozen links from Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Liz Claiborne. . . you get the picture. They do all the work. I point, click and charge. So, if you have something specific (or general) in mind, I challenge you NOT to find this service helpful.”

I’ve never used a service like this, and often, I’m asked by friends to function as their personal shopper because I’ve always found that to be a blast. But, I think this is a good way to see how varied your options can be, get you out of your box in terms of what might be right for you, and perhaps go for brands or stores that you might not have thought of. I know I suffer from shopping at the same places all too frequently. I’m a loyalist-what can I say. Emily did mention that they were recently bought, and that there are changes to the service, but, it’s sounds like something worth checking out to see if it works for you!
