If I go for an appointment with a personal shopper...
do I need to take along some of my existing clothes?
Am thinking of making an appt at Debenhams when I go back to the UK at half-term.
I am totally out of the loop clothes-wise, only mix with teenagers and fuddy-duddies at work and last time I tried to go and spend a bit of money I was totally lost about what look to go for.
If I want them to find me a couple of work outfits and some weekend stuff, should I take along my work shoes and boots and a couple of other bits to try and co-ordinate with them or do I just start afresh?
I went for one of these - didn't take anything - just wore what I usually wear - didn't try too hard IYSWIM and she told me why what I was wearing didn't work LOL, asked what I liked about my body, went through good colours and shapes then took me shopping Oh and asked me my style icons..
Will just take my favourite pair of brown boots and the flat shoes I wear for work.
Not sure I'm up to questions about style icons though - but could definitely do with a stern word about what suits and what doesn't - I spent a whole day wandering round last February and eventually bought some stuff but am not convinced by it.
