Embracing the fashionista with open (well accessorized) arms, Uptown has just introduced a personal shopping room presented by H&M. The Personal Shopping Room offers a personal, precise and perfectly put together opportunity to spend your fashion budget wisely and get the best wardrobe possible.
NICHE was invited to the launch of the shopping room on February 21st. Upon walking the red carpet, the NICHE team was welcomed with delicious canapes, fabulous hostesses and a room reminiscent of an exclusive Rodeo Drive boutique.
I feel the best way to describe the shopping room is to draw comparisons to an old 18th century gentleman’s club in England. Those men felt they had a place of their own, a true sanctuary to shake hands, puff obnoxious O’s of cigar smoke and swirl sips of amber liquid. Now – remove the smoke clouds and drink, pump up the pretty factor, and imagine this wonderfully private space where anyone can enter, embrace their inner femininity, and emerge looking fabulous!
The personal shopping room is adorned with the dreamiest shades of white and pink in a variety of textures, illuminated by dazzling chandeliers. It is a lovely atmosphere to discover your beauty and style solutions, at any age, under the experienced hand of Style Director Erin Bradley. As Uptown’s Style Director, Erin uses her incredible passion for beauty and style to help people embrace their personal approach to style and feel great about how they present themselves to the world. Erin is artistic and approachable and loves to use her talents to help maximize their wardrobes by dressing for their shape, buying clothes they will actually wear and providing them with styling tips and tricks to bring it all together in a fun and easy way. Erin’s favourite thing about her work is getting to know her clients, understanding how clothes and style fit into their lives and helping them enjoy being stylish in a way that works for their lives.
A number of packages are available on the Personal Shopping Room menu to accommodate your particular needs from wedding preparation or graduation, to smaller gatherings such as a girl’s night or weekend outing. The personal shopping room promises to be a fabulous and fun experience of total self-discovery.
