    Hi all

    I was thinking that when I reach goal, hopefully early in the New Year, I might treat myself to a personal shopper as after living in sacks for too many years I am pretty clueless - wondered if anyone else had done this and how they found it?

    Thanks
    Georgie

    My Jo has done it many times, she did it last week to choose her dress for the conference yesterday.

    She has been to House of Fraser in MK a couple of times and recommends it.

    You are under no obligation to buy anything and my Jo is standing here saying GO FOR IT!

    Not yet but planning to when I get to goal. Go for it. You have nothing to lose.

    As Mike said, there is no obligation to buy. Take someone with you so you are not 'persuaded' into buying something you don't want and be clear about your maximum budget - whether it is for one fabulous garment or your entire summer wardrobe! :eek:

    Debenhams are currently offering a free personal shopping session - don't know how much others charge but might be worth a peek cos they have lots of different stuff in there.

    Few of my old LL group went to a personal shopper at John Lewis and thought it was fab - they even go over some stuff with you over the phone when you make the appointment so they have some things for you to try as soon as you get there while they look out more. Free service and not pressure to buy. Of course, like anything like that it's probably down to the actual shopper but I think they can be a great confidence booster.
    You should see if you can fit a couple of free ones in the same day then get 'em to put the stuff aside while you go to the next and decide what all you want at the end!
    Happy Shopping!

    Debenhams personal shopper is free (See the Inspiration magazine!!!!)
    Again, no obligation to buy and they do get you to try stuff that you may have bypassed on your own. (Don't take Kerensa though...... she encourages credit cards to come flying out of your bag!!!)
