Let's go shopping!

If there’s one thing I love its shopping.  While I often prefer to do it online because I dislike annoying people wandering aimlessly around a mall looking like they’ve just landed from another planet, I do enjoy the thrill of the hunt.  I also love fashion and making other people feel good about themselves, step outside of their comfort zone and find new looks.  Had you asked me 5 or even 3 years ago if I would have stepped out of my house wearing skinny jeans or blue tights or pin up dresses (not all at the same time mind you) I would have said you were bat shit crazy.   Alas, I have evolved.   I’ve learned a ton reading all the fashion blogs I’ve found over the past year.  I think when I win the lottery and/or Lucas becomes a famous furniture designer I would like to be in the business of personal shopping.  Whether it be for someone’s personal wardrobe makeover, a special event, Halloween or even a party (shopping for props, decorations, etc. not just clothes).  I’ve heard people say I should be a party planner and while that would be faboosh I don’t think I could deal with the crazies – it would be like being a wedding planner.  No thank you ma’m.   But I would certainly be up for helping people shop and/or find things for their parties.   So if anyone wants to help me practice being a personal shopper – email me!  I’d be happy to go shopping with you and help you pick things out.  I just helped my cousin put together an outfit for a wedding and we did it totally over email/texting, haha.  Very 2012.  And budget doesn't have to be an issue - stores like Old Navy, Target, Forever 21, Kohl's and JC Penney and even Goodwill (!) offer cute outfit options for the savvy shoppers.  :-)

PS – I know there are stores that you can work as a personal shopper (i.e. Nordstrom’s) but a.) they want you to have retail experience, b.) I wouldn’t want to be tied down to making an outfit out of ONE store’s things and c.) I don’t think I’d want to do it all day every day.  I do still have to work as Lucas’ bookkeeper and marketing director of his famous furniture business too.  ;-)
