A few weeks ago I was invited to a attend a fashion event a Cake Style's Chicago Pop Up Shop! I have to admit that when I hear the words wine and fashion, I don't ask a lot of questions, I just show up! Therefore, I didn't know much about Cake Style before I arrived at their Chicago Pop Up Shop. As soon as I walked into their shop and took a look around, I was amazed by the selection of fabulous jewelry and the beautiful clothing hanging on the rolling rack. Cake Style is a personal styling service for busy women that delivers a box of handpicked clothing and accessories to your door each season. You keep what you want and send back the rest!
Cake Style makes it super easy to return the clothing you don't want. One of the best things about Cake Style is that you get a personal stylist without paying for one. You only pay retail price for the items you keep. How cool is that?
I had the opportunity to interview one of the stylist's of Cake style, Kaitland Hunter. Kaitland grew up in Chicago. She is also is a fashion blogger by night at Hunter Style.
TLSF: Tells us about Cake Style and how it can help busy moms or moms that have just had a baby!
Kaitland: Busy moms have so much on their schedules that the last thing they have time for is shopping. You tell us what you need and we do all the work for you! The box arrives within a week or two of signing up, you keep what you love and send back what you don't in a pre-paid box.
TLSF: As you know moms these days are busy and are always on the go! We want to make sure we stay stylish while being comfortable and appropriate at the park! What are 5 items that every mom should have in their closet?
Kaitland: A great carry-all bag, a nice pair of dark wash denim, a shirt so comfortable that you could sleep in it, a go-to cute dress for date nights, and a comfortable and stylish pair of flats or booties.
TLSF: Do you recommend a fashionable diaper bag or a cool handbag that can be used as a diaper bag?
Kaitland: I am a huge fan of Rebecca Minkoff for cute purses and clutches, the amazing thing is that she also makes diaper bags! Score!
TLSF: Do you have any tips on staying stylish as a mom?
Kaitland: You could be wearing the same outfit every day or constantly dressing in head to toe black. This can get incredibly boring after a while! My number one tip to staying stylish is to invest in some great statement jewelry. You don't have to commit to wearing the piece all day but it can really take your look to the next level. Just wearing a t-shirt and jeans? Throw on that great new statement necklace and you suddenly look like you're ready for cocktails. Even if you are not going anywhere, you'll feel put together and special.
Fall is just around the corner and it is a perfect time to check out Cake Style!
