Nordstrom Personal Stylist

In the olden days, personal stylists were only available to the well to do and the famous. Now, if there’s a Nordstrom near you, chances are, you’ve got a stylist at your disposal. As I was browsing some of my regular online stops for big and tall clothing with style, I came across this page promoting the Nordstrom Personal Stylist program. Having never seen it before, I decided to jump right in and find out what they have to offer.

How the Nordstrom Personal Stylist Program Works

According to the website, the company will connect you with a personal stylist who will help you create the perfect look (or looks) to fit your “preferences, budget, or goals.” With free services that run the spectrum from finding an outfit for a special occasion, to catching up with the latest trends, to a total wardrobe revamp, they seem to be willing to assist you no matter what your needs are. It’s as simple as filling out the form on the following page and specifying which Nordstrom store you’d prefer your appointment take place. Within a few hours, I was contacted by a Customer Relationship Manager, who asked me to answer a few additional questions in order to pair me up with the right stylist.

  • What occasion(s) are you shopping for: career, weekend, travel?
  • What are some of your favorite brands and stores to shop in?
  • What date and time would you like your appointment?
  • Are you comfortable with working with a male stylist?

I responded with answers to those questions (and those answers were: looking for clothes in the style I prefer, Orvis, Barbour, Filson, Lands’ End, soon, and yes I am, respectively), as well as additional information about the fact that I’m a big guy.

Tip: Save yourself a lot of trouble and spell out the fact that you’re going to need “non-traditional” sizes. This will speed things up, and ensures that any place you’re considering visiting actually carries clothes in your size. If they don’t – no big deal. You just saved yourself from wasting time going to a shop that doesn’t cater to you.

I quickly received an email response (you can choose phone or email as preferred method of contact) telling me that my new Nordstrom Personal Stylist would be Ephraim. Ephraim reached out with a very friendly email – telling me that he already had some ideas for specific looks based on my preferences, and best of all, that though finding clothing in my size would be more challenging, it wouldn’t be impossible. He gave me his schedule, and asked me for my availability.

Meeting My Nordstrom Personal Stylist

And…that’s where we’re at as of today. This week, I’ll be meeting with my stylist to continue the process. Up to now, it’s been nothing but positive, and I expect more of the same when I meet Ephraim in person. Look for my follow up article early next week. Interested in finding your own stylist?

      He’s gorgeous with all that hair. However, speaking from personal experience, it’s nice to be able to kiss a man like him and not get a mouthful of hair. Trim around your lips so we can lick and suck. Thanks!!
