Personal Shopper in Houston, Austin, Dallas, San Antonio shares shopping secrets

So what exactly does it mean to be a “PRO” at shopping for clothes? Well, I’ll tell you. It’s being able to go out and find exactly what you need in a reasonable amount of time, and–here’s the

big one– not buying clothing you end up taking home and never wearing. Sound impossible? I promise you it’s not.

Let me just tell you, if shopping were an Olympic Sport, I’d be the equivalent to Michael Phelps. I know, sounds like bragging, but it’s true. Why am I so good at it you ask? Easy, because I go in with a plan. I prepare. I have a strategy. Just like Michael Phelps didn’t come right out of the womb knowing how to do the backstroke, you weren’t born knowing how to be an efficient shopper. It can be learned! By you. Let me share with you the secrets of sweet shopping victory.

Have a vision.

Start by collecting pictures of outfits you love. The easiest way to do this is to make your own “Style board” on Pinterest. Don’t have a Pinterest account? Start ripping pages from magazines and create a style folder . Once you have a good amount of pictures, you’ll be able to start identifying the patterns and trends in your style. This will help you know what to look for when shopping and when searching for a new outfit in your closet.
