Let's Go Shopping: Talking personal style with Rosalyn Lee

Special feature

Norman Tan, editor-in-chief of Buro 24/7 Singapore, takes DJ Rozz through the Personal Shopping service at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands

What's better than shopping? Shopping with a personal shopper, of course. What should I wear for a night out? How should I accessorise this dress? There's no need to navigate the fashion Serengeti alone when you can do it with the help of a trusted style advisor: Pre-selected looks, assistance at your whim and fancy, and VIP service to boot. Yes, please.

Don't have your own personal shopper? No problem. At The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, you can book a Personal Shopping experience — simply fill out an online form, identify your style preferences, and indicate whether you're shopping for a particular occasion — and the rest will be taken care of; there's even a $250 voucher for a minimum spend of $1,000, a scent profiling by Penhaligon's to get you in the mood, and to finish off the day, afternoon tea for two is provided at TWG Tea.

After a fun morning of dashing around The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, we chatted to DJ Rozz about her VIP experience.

Before the styling session at MBS, what were your expectations of the Personal Shopping service?
I went in with zero expectations, although I was pretty impressed by how detailed the online questionnaire was. It gave me confidence that it would be a fruitful experience.

How was the experience similar to, or different from, your expectations?
If it wasn't for the information that I provided on the questionnaire, I would've thought the Personal Shopping team was psychic! Very on point.

What was your favourite part of the experience?
Getting driven around in a buggy in a mall from shop to shop. Thoroughly spoilt!

Which was your favourite look?
I loved the Chanel look the most. I would have never picked out that girly slip dress in a million years, but when styled with a leather jacket and boots, it turned into a glam grunge look that I adored.

Would you recommend this service to your friends?
Yes, I would. Because if you're going to buy an outfit anyway, why not do it with all the perks that come with the Personal Shopping service? The hand-selected outfits, shopping voucher of $250 when you spend $1,000 (which cancels out the Personal Shopping service fee), and afternoon tea at TWG Tea. Worth it.

The Personal Shopping experience at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands is now available for booking at $250 per session (3 hours).
