Stacy's Picks: Shop It To Me - Personal Shopper Extraordinaire
|Published:||Jul 11, 2013|
The other day, my personal shopper asked about my favorite fashion designers and stores. Now I get emails to alert me when there are sales or special offers, VIP sale events and secret promotion codes, on items suited to my unique taste and size. My personal shopper scours the web for me, and what's best of all, the service is absolutely free. No, it's not my mom. These made-to-order Salemail™ alerts are a service provided by Shop It To Me! To be honest, it's one of the emails I look forward to receiving, so I opt to have it delivered twice a week, but you can receive them as often as you like - daily and weekly are also options.
From what I've experienced, Shop It To Me finds great deals on seasonal, current fashions - everything from accessories to fine couture, ultimately saving me time and money. Sign up for your free Shop It To Me account and let them take it from there. During the sign-up process, you'll be asked to indicate whether you would like to receive fashion alerts for men, women or children and it only allows you to pick one category. However, once your account has been made and you've logged in, you can edit, add or remove brands and sizes from all three categories.
