I’m in the dressing room at Macy’s, and I’m surrounded by clothes. I’m a personal shopper, and I love my job. I love helping women find the perfect outfit for their body type, and I love the challenge of finding the right clothing for a special occasion.
But today, I’m not shopping for a client. I’m shopping for my friend, Sarah. Sarah is a busy mom, and she doesn’t have a lot of time to shop for herself. So, I’ve offered to be her personal shopper for the day.
I start by asking Sarah what she’s looking for. She tells me she needs a new dress for a wedding she’s attending next month. She wants something that is both stylish and comfortable.
I take a look at Sarah’s body type and decide that she would look great in a wrap dress. I find a beautiful wrap dress in black and white that I know she’ll love. I hold it up to her and she smiles.
“That’s perfect!” she says.
As Sarah looks in the mirror, she seems to transform before my eyes. She goes from being a busy mom to being a confident woman who is ready to take on the world.
“Thank you so much for your help,” she says to me. “I feel like a new woman!”
I’m so happy that I could help Sarah find the perfect outfit. It’s moments like these that make me love my job.
