It might sound like fun to hit the streets of Chicago for your designer fashion needs, but with the city’s unpredictable weather, hopping from store to store can be a less than stellar experience. Instead, imagine having a box of head-to-toe looks dropped right at your front door.
CakeStyle is a newly launched personal styling service for women that sends a box of handpicked clothing and accessories to members’ doors each season. Personal stylists consult with members to learn about their fit and wardrobe needs, then comb the company’s large inventory of pieces from Paige Denim, Robert Rodriguez, Milly, Elie Tahari, Theory and more.
If this sounds like something that would send your bank account screaming for the hills, you’ll be pleased to know that while each box of four to six looks, including accessories and a personalized video explaining each look, has a retail value of approximately $3,000, your shipping and styling consultation costs are complimentary and you only pay retail price for the clothes and accessories that you choose to keep. If you prefer to do your styling consultation in-person, CakeStyle’s studio is located at Ohio and State above Pops for Champagne, making a post-shopping libation extremely convenient.
CakeStyle is a great option for anyone looking to make a special purchase, such as a classic job interview suit or a few special pieces to accent your wardrobe. When you speak or meet with your personal stylist, you can tell her what you’re shopping for so that your box of looks can be tailored to your upcoming occasion.
Cecelia Myers was inspired to begin CakeStyle after hearing her friends’ and colleagues’ frustrations about finding the right clothes for every occasion, from the office She realized it was time to put a stylists’ advice in the homes and offices of busy women all over the country.
