CakeStyle, started a year ago by Cecelia Myers, is a fresh new take on personal styling catering to the fashionably conscious professional woman! Cecelia noticed that many of her fellow co-workers struggled to find the perfect office outfit that was appropriate but also functional in more ways than one. Obviously seeing this lack of personal attention to the professional woman Cakestyle was born, combining 2 of Cecelia’s passions: fashion & business.
From the moment I walked into their adorable showroom located at Ohio and State Street I wanted to sign up with a personal CakeStylist and begin my fun journey of refreshing my Fall wardrobe (never too early to plan). I met with a fabulous CakeStylist named Laurie and she filled me in on everything I needed to know. The whole process is broken down into 3 easy steps.
First, you will get matched with a personal stylist who will then start you with your fit & wardrobe consultation. After the initial meeting they will select about 16 pieces or 4-6 outfits along with accessories and send them to you. The great part of this process is the personal videos that each stylist creates for their client. The personal videos go over each outfit that was selected for you. The videos highlight how pieces are worn and why they will work for you. I find that the personal videos not only are helpful but very informative. Think of the videos as Fashion 101. Also, if you want to get more personal and live in the Chicago area, the ladies of CakeStyle will do a personal consultation in their chic showroom. Lastly, you select what you like and the rest you send it back, you only pay for the items you keep. CakeStyle has really made this whole process very customer friendly.
CakeStyle is something that every fashionista should take advantage of. It is really easy to get stuck in a rut and feel uninspired by your current wardrobe but CakeStyle is sure to get you out of that rut and into a hot Trina Turk dress. I can’t wait for my appointment with a CakeStylist.
Unlike the Simon & Garfunkel song ‘Cecelia’…Cecelia is not breaking our hearts but instead making us fall in love with fabulous designer pieces!
