Westfield Mall: Style for Hire

Westfield Shopping Centers aren't ordinary malls. This weekend I made a trip to the WESTFIELD STYLE LOUNGE to check out the free, one-on-one fashion consultations. I worked with Samantha, a "Style for Hire Stylist" who was able to help with with fashion trends and store suggestions.

The lounge is staffed by experts from Style for Hirea network of personal stylists trained by Co-founder and Stylist-in-Chief Stacy London, the acclaimed host of TLC's What Not To Wear, frequent contributor on NBC's Today Show and Creative Director for Westfield Style.

For my visit, I headed to Paramus, NJ to the Garden State Plaza mall. I wanted to find out what were some of the hottest new stores at Westfield and to get some suggestions for new dresses. The service is free and totally inspired me to check out some new stores. Samantha's advice was terrific and ranged from inexpensive accessories to serious wardrobe investments.

When it comes time to slip into divine shoes, Samantha suggested Carlo Pazolini and she was right. The Italian designer tempted me with bags and shoes in a faux lizard (see main feature). These stylists know what they are doing.

If you can't book a 1 on 1 appointment, shoppers can get advice on demand right from their mobile phone via the new Ask A Stylist service. Shoppers simply e-mail a photo of their look to the on-call stylist for an instant response. Nice.

The Westfield Style Lounge experience will debut this Spring at three premier Westfield shopping centers: Westfield Garden State Plaza and Westfield Trumbull (NY), and Westfield Montgomery (DC). Later in the year, the program will be expanded to other favorite Westfield shopping centers in top national markets.

Make appointments in advance on the Westfield Mobile App (for iPad, Android, or Blackberry), or via www.westfieldstylelounge.com.
