Recently, I decided to update my wedding photographer wardrobe from all black to fun, cool things I could wear to weddings and look good when it gets hot. And while carrying tons of equipment and rolling around on the ground. Sounds like a challenge, huh?
Yesterday I had a personal shopper appointment with Kristi at the South Hills Village Mall jcrew store. I had shopped at that store before, and Kristi convinced me that I needed this personal shopper experience(this is a FREE service). She was right! I was kind of freaked out because I’m not the best at shopping and I’m 6′-0″ tall. Thankfully jcrew has tall sizes with 36″ inseams (I know, I’m a giant, right?).
Sounds intimidating, but it is not…..so you go there and you tell her what you like and she picks clothes for you that she thinks you will like AND – the best part – will look good on you. Kristi knew I was coming in and what I was looking for so she took time to pre-order tall things from the catalog and had so many choices for me! When I arrived, she had a hot tea with honey waiting for me and was so patient while I tried everything on.
Obviously, I took my camera because…..
1. I had a photo shoot later that day.
2. I had to make sure I look good in the clothes.
3. The clothes had to handle all of this equipment on my shoulders.
Yes, I’m a cheeseball and I took photos of myself in the dressing room.
Looks good to me. At the end, Kristi asked me what I liked and told me her favorites. She didn’t pressure me to buy anything I didn’t want. There was a promotion for 20% off purchases of $125 or more and tons of stuff was already on sale! If you see me this summer, you will know who dressed me!
So I wanted to give Kristi some love and everyone should call (because she is the best) and make an appointment with her at her store. 412 831 3564. Give her a call and say you saw her on this blog.
Brides, couldn’t you use some new threads for that honeymoon? or for that rehearsal dinner? Take all of your bridesmaids too!
