An Open Letter to My AMAZING Very Personal Stylists

Hi Everyone!

It's no secret that I LOVE my J. Crew Very Personal Stylists.  So, today, I thought that I'd share part of a letter that I'm sending to J. Crew about them.

First, I've worked with my fabulous retail VPS for approximately 4 years.  I remember the first time she helped me with an Easter outfit.  I walked away thinking that she was super attentive and personable.  I really appreciated how she subtly challenged me to move outside of my comfort zone without being pushy.  And, the next time I was in the store, she remembered specific details from our previous conversation.  As I've worked with her throughout the years, she's become so much more than a VPS.  She cares about my career, my health, my success, and my amazing hubby.  Likewise, I care about her success, her family, and her career.  I can text her, call her, or email her for outfit inspiration and options.  And, she's coming to my house to help me organize outfits in my closet soon.  How generous is that?

Here is a picture of my AMAZING retail VPS.  I LOVE her style!


Her attention to detail, specifically her attentiveness to her clients’ needs is unmatched.  She’s passionate, reliable, knowledgeable, and outstanding.  My fashionable wardrobe reflects her exemplary styling skills.  I can't count the number of compliments I've received on the outfits she's created.  I don’t want to shop without her!!!  

My online VPS is equally amazing!!!!  I was SO nervous when my former online VPS took another position with the company because we had worked together for at least 2-3 years.  Let me tell you, my online VPS now has exceeded any expectations I've ever had about the VPS program.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her.  She answers the phone and my emails with such joy and excitement.  I feel like I'm talking to my best friend when I'm on the phone with her.  She even answers my emails within 30 minutes......on her days off!!!!  We have a great rapport, and I pray that she doesn't leave J. Crew.  I honestly don't know what I'd do without her.  

I genuinely appreciate my FANTASTIC Very Personal Stylists!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. wow! I'm so glad you're voicing your appreciation to JC too- it's too easy to only communicate complaints and we forget how valuable positive feedback is!

    1. thatdamngreendress: You're super sweet! I totally agree that we often communicate complaints rather than praise. So, I want everyone at J. Crew to know how amazing my Very Personal Stylists are! They absolutely rock!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  3. Ooh, I've yet to use the services of a VPS, is that bad for a JCA like me?

    I want her entire outfit - the necklace, the blazer, the blouse - it is all spot on!

    1. Lisa: I don't think that it's bad that you've never used the service! I think that it's a great service. It has helped me tremendously. However, you're able to combine patterns and outfits in a way that I can't. I can pick out single pieces, but at times, I have a hard time coordinating the entire outfit. The other thing that is really helpful about the service is that the VPS can find items that are sold out on the website quicker than the "We will find it for you service."

      And, like you, I want her entire outfit! I have all of the top pieces, so I'm recreating this beautiful combination very soon!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  4. Rynetta, it is so rare to see someone publicly compliment someone that helps them. More often, we see the complaints, not the compliments. I hope that someone at her store sees this. Although- I am sure you are a dream customer!

  5. So refreshing! We tend to always focus on the negative that we forget all the gret things. Good for you. I am sure they love you more.

    1. Gigi: I know, those shoes add a great pop of color, right?!?! This is one of the many reasons why I love her. She combines pieces that I'd never think to put together, but they look amazing and unconventional! And, this is the least that I can do to honor how amazing they are!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  9. You are so lucky to have a VPS like this!
    Very nice of you to recognize her in a blogpost. Does she know you have a blog?

    1. Ina: I totally agree! I LOVE working with both of my amazing Very Personal Stylists. And, yes, they both know about my blog. It helps them to keep track of the items in my closet. My retail VPS actually encouraged me to start the blog.

  10. Such a sweet post. My in-store VPS left and I was disappointed that no one called to reach out to her clients. She was great and I loved seeing her and completely trusted her opinion.

    My online VPS is amazing. She is so fun to talk to; realistic about recommendations and can almost always find me what I'm looking for.

    1. JulieStyles: Awwww, thank you SO much! Oh no, someone should have definitely followed up with you after your retail VPS left. I am so sorry to hear that. It's so great to work with someone you trust.

      And, I'm really glad to hear about your online VPS!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  13. What a sweet post! It's cool that the two of you have developed a relationship beyond the shopping, and also nice that you have someone in your corner who gets your style and will push you a little bit. :) Yay for your VPS!!
