Best of Boston

2007 Best Personal Shopper

Alisa Neely, Scout

Bolstered by a fashion design background (she cofounded the children’s line Due Sorelle), the 37-year-old Neely has earned raves for her hip and highly practical consulting services, which mix the affordable (H&M, Anthropologie) with the high end (Barneys, Dress). Free advice: “Trends come and go very quickly, so it’s best to steer clear of extremes. The really skinny jeans Kate Moss would wear don’t work on everyone; a straight leg in a dark denim with dressy heels would be better.”
