We women have a reputation as serious shoppers. Many would say this comes from our ancestral roots in the “hunter/gatherer” mix, however, whatever the reason, we appear to be experts in the field. This said, there are women at the other end of the spectrum. Women who are described as shopping like men. What does this mean? They know what they want, they eye their target, they pick it up, pay for it and then leave. Regardless of what type of shopper you are, here on “I’ve got kids” we have an expert who can point you in the right direction.
We are delighted to introduce Debbie Gray, an Image Consultant with 30 years experience in the fashion industry.
