Utilizing a personal shopper, hiring someone to help you consolidate your wardrobe—these used to be habits reserved for the upper echelon, the socialites with densely packed social calendars and even more densely packed bank accounts.
But things are changing. Now even the 99% can make the most of their wardrobes, thanks to the help of affordable fashion consulting services like BECLOTHESMINDED. Heidy Best, the woman behind the brand, already offers relatively low prices on her services, but if you take advantage of this Gilt City sale, you can book her for way less.
For just $149, choose from either a two-hour personal shopping session or a two-hour closet cleaning (both services generally go for $300 a pop.) Whether you're style-savvy or sartorially challenged, you could probably benefit for a one-on-one session with this pro, who could teach anyone a thing or two about trimming the excess from your wardrobe or figuring out which pieces best flatter your bod.
