I received an email this morning letting me know that Cakestyle, a personal stylist service, has closed down after nearly 2 years in business. That’s not long at all! This is why starting a business scares the crap out of me. I can’t wrap my mind around failure.
Cakestyle delivered hand-selected outfits from a personal stylist to your doorstep. The package included clothing, accessories, a price list, and a letter with a video link to your stylist giving you an overview of each of the different outfits. The service, shipping & handling, and returns were all free. You only had to pay for the items you decided to keep. I mainly just kept earrings and necklaces because the clothing was so expensive.
I wrote about my experience with Cakestyle in 2 previous posts.
Anywho, cool concept, but sadly it didn’t take off. Honestly, I’m not surprised.
