How A Personal Stylist Can Boost Your Confidence

Fashion is so fun! Trying new styles, shopping, getting dressed every morning… The fun never ends. I’ve always loved picking out outfits to wear for different occasions. It’s almost been more exciting to me to style myself for an event than to attend the event.

Lately however, I haven’t felt as inspired when it came to getting dressed. That feeling has a lot to do with the changes my body is going through due to a health issue. I’ve always been able to go into a store, look at an item and tell if it could fit me or not. I knew my body.

Over the last year that has changed. I didn’t really know my size. I don’t have the energy to go to a store and try on a lot of styles until I find the perfect fit. I also didn’t know what would flatter my new body.

Having to replace most of the styles in my closet sounded like such a headache. I didn’t even know where to begin. That’s when I remembered that one of my favorite online store started a personal styling service!

P.S by JustFab is the new way to shop. You get assigned to a stylist based on a style quiz you take. The quiz even goes in depth about how you like your clothing to fit and what colors you prefer to wear.  The stylist then sends you a box of 5-8 items to try. There is a $20 styling fee that is applied towards whatever you decide to purchase. The best part is you aren’t charged for the items until you decide what to keep and shipping is free both ways!

Here’s how working with my personal stylist boosted my confidence

1.She helped me step out of my comfort zone

Kat suggested new styles for me to try. The dress in my photos isn’t a style I would’ve picked on my own, but it ended up being my favorite item. A personal stylist can see what would look great on you no matter what your body type is.

2.She helped me avoid a mall meltdown

Don’t get me wrong, I love to go shopping! But the recent task of trying to find a new flattering wardrobe caused many dressing room frustrations. With the P.S. box I could conveniently try the styles on in the comfort of my home. I was also able to try on the styles she sent with items already in my wardrobe to see if they fit in with what I already owned.

3.She relieved so much stress

P.S. by JustFab is not s subscription box. So there’s no pressure to buy something every month. Kat also included styling ideas for each item in the box and even suggested ways to style them with what I already owned. She looked through my JustFab order history and my social media channels to see what I already owned. This was so helpful for those moments when I just couldn’t decide what to wear.

A note from my stylist. I love the details!

    I honestly didn’t I could afford a personal stylist. When I think of personal stylists I think of wealthy people, celebrities, and royalty. I didn’t really think normal people used personal stylists, but honestly, this post really made rethink my preconceived notions.

    I think a personal stylist would be great to get me out of my comfort zone like you mentioned! Sometimes I get stuck in a familiar rut, and I’d love to see what someone else picked for me and my personality!

    I absolutely love that dress on you!! Gorgeous! And I definitely agree having a stylist is so great especially for getting tips and ideas on things you normally wouldn’t wear.

    I SO wanted the dress from JustFab but they were sold out in my size- heartbreak- you have no idea how sad I was that it was OOS. I am so going to try the personal stylist on my next order- I can’t wait to see what they pick for me! Thanks for sharing this service 🙂

    It’s always nice to get a little feedback from someone and some encouragement to try a new look or something you wouldn’t have picked yourself. You look great!

    My sister has been struggling with her confidence for over a year now and it is breaking my heart. For her birthday I want to hire a personal stylist for her so that she might feel how we see her. I really love that you mention how your personal stylist helped you with stepping out of your comfort zone with items that you would have never chosen but totally worked and gave you a different perspective. I will keep that in mind when looking for a stylist for my sister.
