This is the day and age of fast information, and getting it right now. I mean my life stops if an e-mail going out gets stuck in my Outlook send folder for whatever reason.
And pretty much -- I'm the same way when it comes to personal shopping. Not only do I, a personal shopper within close distance to Los Angeles, want to deliver instant results to my clients; I hope that as they shop around for themselves online, they are provided with what they're searching for. But finding exactly what they are searching for is not always that simple.
Although I'm really into zafu.com, a popular destination site for jean shopping, my new fave is Shop It To Me. After the brains behind this site learn just what you're looking for, they go out as your "personal shopper" and figure out which sites have what you desire. For instance, if you're looking for a new Juicy Couture sweatsuit in the latest Spring color, Shop It To Me will scour online stores and boutiques such as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, or Bluefly, before notifing you when that site has your size or the sale price you're looking for. Hello -- FABULOUS, right? Oh, and a lovely detail you don't wanna miss out on: it's a FREE service.
And here is how this San Francisco-based company evolved (straight from them...don't you just love "About Me" pages?):
"Shop It To Me began after one too many frustrating trips to on-line retailers. We were tired of finding out about on-line sales too late. We were too busy to spend hours each day searching the web for the latest deals. Why couldn't we just give someone our preferences and have them search for us?
So we decided to create a different way to shop.
Our first service, Shop It To Me Apparel, proactively sends you clothing that matches your size and brand preferences as soon as it goes on sale. Shop It To Me Running allows you to find out when your favorite running shoe models and running gear go on sale. It's so easy that you will never shop the same way again."
Try it out, and share your experience with me! If you need my assistance with figuring out the styles you might want to consider, and where to even start, before taking advantage of Shop It To Me, please contact me. I'd love to chat with you.
