Shop With Val on air in Germany!

Today I received a request from a client in Germany. When asked how she heard about Shop With Val I was pretty amazed. She was listening to a podcast interview about "www.Outfittery.de" where the founder said I was her inspiration when she was in NYC a few years ago. I had worked with her male friend, who had such a great experience with me. How cool is that? After visiting their website I found this note below on how they got started. (Hint: the personal shopper they mention is me!) Outfittery is now a wildly successful company providing personal shopping services for men throughout Europe. Thank you Outfittery for the honorable mention. I am so happy to know the scope of my work truly affects people worldwide. #ItPaysToShopWithVal

If you understand German feel free to listen to the podcast HERE. Genießen! (Enjoy!)

Shop With Val is on Poshmark!

Although I've known about Poshmark for some time I finally decided to put it to the test. I joined just a week ago and am already addicted. If you're a fan of eBay, Poshmark is a bit more refined for the fashion forward. Check out some of the gems I'm selling by visiting  https://poshmark.com/closet/shopwithvalerie - Happy hunting!

Happy 9th birthday, Cheeky!

Yesterday I got to visit the acclaimed Cheeky Vintage boutique, here, in Houston. As they were throwing a bash for their 9th birthday I figured it would be a great day to see the space. It was everything I imagined and more. As soon as I entered, I was greeted with champagne by their friendly staff, along with cupcakes and nibbles, and walls that were lined with bright and colorful pieces I couldn't wait to get my hands on. I immediately felt as if I were a little girl, lucky enough to raid my mother or grandmother's closet. Every nook and cranny was filled with hats, bags, and shoes that gave each of the five rooms the perfect personal touch. This is the kind of place you could spend hours just rummaging through every single item until you find that gem that speaks to you... or perhaps a few gems, actually. From Oscar de la Renta and Valentino to their own Cheeky Vintage line this place will win you over if you've never considered yourself a "vintage type of girl." I can't wait to go back and bring some of my own clients in so I can share the goodness. 

Shop With Val makes her Houston debut!

With a little help from the lovely and talented writer and Houston blogger, Julie Lauren, Shop With Val is proud to have made her debut in the Houston fashion world. Thanks to Julie, Houstonians can now learn more about how Shop With Val got its start and how I'm bringing the best of NYC to Texas. Check out my interview here. Thanks, Julie!

Thanks for a great trip, NYC!

I spent 10 days in NYC this month; my first time back since moving to Houston in August. It certainly kicked off with a bang! I was able to reconnect with a number of my existing clients to assist them with their wardrobe and styling needs for the fall, and even got to squeeze in a few new clients, as well. In between, I got to attend some great events for NYFW (New York Fashion Week, although you probably already knew that). There are some exciting new partnerships and exclusive Shop With Val promotions in the works that I am thrilled to announce to you soon. All in all, the trip was a huge success and I can't wait to come back again in October.
