The world of real-life personal shopping is anything but glamorous. Perhaps you've wondered what it's really like being a personal shopper. Though far from a highly coveted fashion industry job, personal shopping takes a lot of patience, especially when you're dealing with wealthy clients who have no qualms about dropping a cool $1 million on a rare handbag but refuse to drink coffee unless it's heated to their preferred temperature.
Personal shopping isn't only for the rich and famous - plenty of affordable options are available, including free personal shopping services at department stores, including Nordstrom or Topshop. The wealthiest 1%, however, make for the best personal shopper stories - like the kind seen in the movie Personal Shopper, starring Kristen Stewart, and other fashion-focused films.
True tales of shopping for the elite will enlighten and perhaps disturb you. Personal shoppers may not lead the privileged life, but they're certainly well acquainted with it.
