God forbid you've bought so little as a pair of socks from Banana Republic in the past ten years. If you have, you're surely receiving the barage of emails/snail mails that I am. BR is relentless in their pursuit to have you shop on a weekly, nay daily basis! And now this additional injustice, thinly veiled as a perk. A"free" stylist who is going to encourage you to shop even more frequently AND dress you head to toe in BR gear?! Call me bananas but I'm not sure that I see the perk in that equation. If I wanted to be force-fed I'd go to dinner at Bob's Big Boy and call it a night.
