Introducing The Westfield Style Lounge


The Westfield Style Lounge via the Westfield Trumbull Facebook page

As a Westfield Style Ambassador, I wanted to share really exciting news about something called the Westfield Style Lounge, which provides shoppers with a free, one-on-one fashion consultation with Style for Hire stylists when they visit the malls.

That's right: You can get real-time help from real stylists while you're shopping at the mall.

There are two ways to take advantage of this free service: Head to the Westfield Style Lounge, a dedicated space in the mall where professional stylists will provide free personalized style consultations for shoppers.

Or, just use your mobile phone to simple e-mail a photo of your look to the on-call stylist for an instant response. Brilliant!

The Fitting Room at Walmart



Walmart just launched something called The Fitting Room, a place to help you discover all the latest spring and summer trends currently available - all at Walmart's low prices.

The Fitting Room lets shoppers browse, Pin and Share their favorite trends like color blocking, mix & match, bright, bold bathing suits, the Miss Tina collection (by Beyonce's mom) and more. I love the buyer's picks section, the accessories and all the stripes (of course).
