Star Personal-Shopper Rachel Choy Stresses on Building a ‘Personal Brand

Ever wondered why that outfit that looked ‘amazing’ at the store does not look quite as alluring once home? Does the idea of shopping fill you with dread? Inducing visions of trying on one too many outfits and then ‘settling’ for one just to make up for all the time spent lost? It certainly does not have to be that way. After all, there are now professionals who can take one look at you and pick out a rack full of clothes to flatter your body type, height, skin tone and make you feel like a million bucks!

She regularly posts her achievements on her Instagram account, which has over 200k followers. Currently, she holds the position of a personal shopper for one of the biggest luxury stores in the country, Neiman Marcus.
