Imagine shopping everyday. Now imagine shopping everyday and getting paid for it because this is exactly what I do for a living! Thats a dream come true for me but if I’m being completely honest I get the most reward from seeing my clients’ style evolve with each visit – especially when they come back just to say hello or share stories of how their friends and family love their new look. It makes me feel like I’m doing right by the world – one garment at a time!
I am a strong believer that confidence and feeling good starts with knowing that you look good in the clothes that you wear and I love helping other people achieve that confidence. For example, one of my clients, Bob came to me after he had just lost a lot of weight. He was unsure of how to dress in his newly earned body. We talked about what he wanted to achieve, his likes and dislikes, about his lifestyle; what he did for a living and the things that he liked to do for fun and together we created his ideal wardrobe. It created a dynamic between us that was more than just shopper and client – I’ve become his professional shopping buddy, where an appointment together is more like hanging out versus me just dictating what looks good. As the service we provide is complimentary – yes FREE! – it means that our clients can come in as often as they like. Now Bob stops by every other week, not only to shop but also to catch up! There is a huge variety of people that I get to hang out with. My clients range from students to business professionals, trendy fashionistas and even some bigger named celebrities and entertainers.
A look into the Personal Shopping suites of TOPSHOP TOPMAN Vancouver.
Aside from saving the world from leaving the house in a hoodie and sweatpants, I get the privilege to represent TOPSHOP TOPMAN as a brand ambassador, attending local fashion and networking events. Some of which I get to see clients and their new outfits outside of the personal shopping suite walls. On occasion, events and trend presentations will be hosted within the suites as well, which allow clients to get to know me and the amazing team that I work with a little bit more on a personal level. We are a diverse bunch all with our own wicked sense of style and but we all have one thing in common, we love to pass that knowledge on.
