Q: I would love to buy my mother an outfit, but don't know what to get. I've been told that the answer is to find a personal shopper. If so, how do I go about it?

A: Susan Olden, who heads the Saks Fifth Avenue personal shopping service, says you have the right idea. She adds that most major department stores have a personal shopping service, so find out what stores and designers our mother prefers.

"Contact the stores and set up an appointment for your mother. A good personal shopper will discuss her lifestyle and individual needs before she begins finding the right outfit for her," Ms. Olden says.
