#SecretsOfAStylist: So You Want to be a Stylist

Did you know there is a big difference a fashion blogger, personal shopper, and a stylist?

Contrary to popular belief, not everyone that is a fashionista, a style blogger, an influencer, actually has the skill-set to become a stylist or personal shopper. A website and a business card, does not a professional make.

Personal shoppers perform services completely different from a stylist’s services. A personal shopper goes to boutiques and designers for their clients, and presents a small selection of clothes that they are most likely to buy. That means you have to really know your client and their personal taste. Stylists, on the other hand, help create a client’s image.

This week, Kim Appelt of StylebyKimXO, explains her top 10 tips on how to follow your stylist dream.
