Review: Personal Shopping by Your Stylist LLC


In February, I got a Closet Audit by Your Stylist LLC, and told you all about it (so fun and I learned so much!) During the Closet Audit, Jackie assesses your style and which key pieces you might be missing. Then, the next step, is that she provides her expertise as a Personal Shopper.

You set your budget and then she determines which stores will have the perfect additions to your wardrobe. She bases this decision mainly based on your style and budget, but what I love about it, is that because she does this for a living, she knows WHEN to shop for the best sales, selections, new arrivals, and things like that. Things that a “normal” person would never know. And because of that, you get the items that are the best fit for you, at the best price.

Which by the way, these services aren’t for the rich and famous. We actually calculated up how much she was saving the client she was there at a the store for. Her client had designer taste but a bargain budget, and just by Jackie knowing about certain sales and savings events, she was able to get lots of “looks for less” that MORE than paid for her services.

As for pricing, it’s a flat rate of $150 to get a complete a pre-shop prior to your shopping trip together. This saves a ton of time, travel …and probably your sanity. All you have to do is show up and try on!

Jackie makes it REALLY easy on you, by setting all the items you need, and even taking the time to find coordinating pieces and accessories, so you can leave with go-to outfits if you like the look!

Then, you two can shop together for her $65 an hour rate for however long you’d like. This is where she can learn more about you and your style and she can offer you tips, tricks and how to incorporate current trends into your wardrobe.

Now, if you don’t want to meet at the store to try on the items she pulled, or go through and shop together, another option would be to have Jackie shop for you alone, make the purchases, bring them to you, and then she takes care of returns afterwards. The rates vary with this option based on time and travel.

This seems like a FABULOUS option for people who don’t like to shop, or don’t have the time, but despirately need a wardrobe refresh; those who feel like they don’t know what to shop for or how to make it look just right; or they just want to get the most bang for their buck by having a professional shopper find their looks for less! Your Stylist with Jackie Neville can help with all that!

My faaaaavorite shopping district in Cincinnati is Hyde Park Square, and they’re hosting a special shopping event this Thursday called “Shop, Sip’n Stroll.”  It sounds like such a fun event, and the perfect excuse to shop local for all those dads and grads you need to still get gifts for! (Oh, ok, and maybe pick up a few things for yourself! haha!) Plus, they’ll have live music provided by DJ Toad as well as drinks and treats in all the cute shops.

The merchants of Hyde Park will have extended store hours, and many of the stores will have limited sales for this event only. The discounts will be pretty impressive from what I hear (just wrote this blog about the Alligator Purse 40% off sale), Kate Boutique just got in a ton of new arrivals (click here to see pics of their new GLAM, C. Luce and Joes Jeans merchandise!), and click here to see some of the great gift ideas for dad at Nest on Michigan Ave.

Ooooh, and I just got a necklace  (made by an artist in Paris, Sandrine Giraud) for my birthday on Monday from Cockerill, which is also on Hyde Park Square. I saw it weeks ago while out shopping with my husband. He remembered it, went back and got it for my birthday! I love it! They still have several other pieces by this artist, so I encourage you to check them out for yourself! They’re so unique!

The event is this Thursday, June 13, from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.! See you there!
