I realize this has absolutely nothing to do with photography, art, or motherhood, the main topics of my blog, but I know of at least a handful of you who will enjoy knowing about this so I figured what the hell…
Maybe you know that I don’t really put much thought into clothing and really detest clothes shopping (I mean… I could spend that time reading or creating!). There’s nothing like my comfy jeans and a tshirt to help me relax, and that’s pretty much my uniform these days.
But, when my hubby mentioned this no obligation service that would get to know your style, shop for you, and then mail the items to your house, I knew I had to try it. Sometimes I find I have nothing to wear to a baby shower or a night out, you know? The company is called Cakestyle. I filled out an extensive questionnaire online with all my measurements, clothing choices and brand favorites, and what I am looking for. My stylist, Lory, contacted me too.
The box arrived via UPS and it was beautifully made in itself. Each outfit was put together (including accessories) and wrapped in tissue paper. I am supposed to try everything on, take pictures so I can show Lory how it looks on me and help her choose in the future, and send back anything I don’t want to keep using the free UPS service.
The moment I opened the box I knew I had to share it with you all. The clothes were gorgeous but way too expensive and would only be appropriate were I someone who goes out more and lived a completely different lifestyle. :)
I know that this company is getting paid by the stores only if they sell these items, and so to make a profit, the clothing and jewelry has to be somewhat pricey. But I was still disappointed.
Would you be interested in a service like this? Why or why not?
