Are you tired of shopping by yourself, second guessing your choices in the fitting room and unable to get style advice at the stores you go to?
Would you like help narrowing down what to focus on when shopping, picking the right style, and selecting the right sizes and fit?
Are you looking to receive guidance on what to look for and get help selecting things outside your comfort zone?
Would you like to learn the best ways to shop consignment so you don’t feel overwhelmed?
Are You Ready to Shop Like a Pro?
Join me on a fashion excursion where you will…
- Have your own personal shopper to take your measurements, offer styling advice, and help you decide what to buy,
- Have a productive and fun shopping experience at consignment stores, and
- Make connections with likeminded women, support each other while shopping and shop with new friends (instead of by yourself.
Fashion excursions (aka Consignment Store Crawls) are the VIP group shopping experience! You get to shop in amazing stores that I have selected, connect with likeminded women, get expert advice from me, shop for new clothes, have fun, enjoy lunch or happy hour and maybe a glass of wine and make new friends!
This is a unique shopping experience!
These events are small so that you can maximize your time with me and receive personalized attention. You get style advice and my insights for how to shop consignment effectively. I take your measurements so you have those to refer to when shopping (for the event and in the future). I am in the fitting room area with you and I help you assess the fit, silhouette and proportion of the clothing you found.
Some of the cool things that happen these excursions include getting a private dressing room area (all to ourselves), having a store open just for our group (when the store is normally closed), and attendees bringing gifts for the rest of the group.
What always happens is you won’t have to wait in line to try on your clothes nor do you need to worry about only being allowed to take in a limited number of items at a time.
Fashion Excursions are offered in one of three ways!
Monthly – Let’s takeover the stores (sort of)! Once a month, we will shop at one consignment store for about 90-minutes. I have selected some of my favorites in the Phoenix area to rotate throughout the year! These are limited to the first five women who RSVP.
Quarterly Consignment Store Crawls in Phoenix and Scottsdale– These excursions include our own private taxi, visits to two to three Phoenix or Scottsdale consignment stores, expert advice plus ending with a group lunch and/or happy hour. These are limited to the first five women who RSVP.
Private Events – Tired of the same experiences for a girls’ day (or night) out? Try something new. Shop with your friends with a personal shopper! Perfect for celebrations, bachelorette parties, birthdays and just for fun! Private events are customized to your group and what part of town you want to shop at. Available for adult women and for teens. We can customize this to your needs and budget – either shopping at one store or “crawling” and shopping at multiple stores. Contact me to help you plan the perfect event!

We will then shop for about an hour to an hour and a half at the store before moving on to the next store. You are free to shop for what you want, ask advice from me and other ladies and experiment with new styles. We have a private taxi to go between stores and hold our purchases while we move from store to store. The taxi will drive us between stores, back to the starting point and then we will have lunch or happy hour at the end. Plan on a 4-4.5 hour long event.
Monthly Consignment Store Shopping: We will meet at the scheduled store, I will get your measurements taken, show you how to shop by measurement and we will shop for about 60 minutes or so. Plan on 90 minutes total with me.

Why consignment? Sustainability is an important part of my mission. Buying clothes from consignment stores is an excellent way to be impactful with your purchases, keep clothes out of the landfill, save money and have better options available to you. Check out this article for a bit more of the “why.”

I want this shopping experience to be fun for everyone and everyone has their own shopping preferences. Please let me know if there is something in particular you are looking for while shopping, anything you need help with or if you just want to shop in peace!
Please note that because this a shopping trip with a number of people, there won’t be time for one on one shopping for everyone. I will be available for questions you may have, advice on how things look and to help you find what you are looking for.

Schedule Time to Speak with Loren
Totally above and beyond what I expected!
“I thought I’d walk away with a few good pieces of clothes. I walked away with much more than that!
I gained an entirely new wardrobe (for a steal!) and I have a much better understanding of how to shop the racks at Goodwill. I also learned how to measure clothes on the rack, saving me loads of time and frustration in the dressing room.”
– Abby H.
“We learned about shopping by measurement, selecting clothing that is right for us and a bit about color mixing too. We laughed, we shopped, we laughed, we shopped again.”
“It was so much fun! I loved that it was a small group of women and that we were all on ‘a mission.’ I could just do my thing and have fun. I learned about measurements and how to use them to find great clothes.”
– Angella B.
“Experience was better than expected. These visits reinforced what I learned during my private shopping with Loren. I am more confident in being able to tackle a store on my own.”
– Barbara C.
