After receiving over $3,000 of merchandise and a budget of only $300, I knew I had my work cut out for me. A couple things I was able to rule out right away â€“ both the jacket and the blazer were ill-fitting on me and were immediate negatives. Both pairs of jeans didnâ€™t fit properly. Most of the accessories I liked, but I wasnâ€™t willing to use up a majority of my budget on bracelets and earrings. I already have a couple pairs of Spanx, so I was able to rule those out completely, too.
Of everything I received, I really loved the Milly Belted Joanne Dress ($425), Shoshanna Tweed Pocket Skirt ($295), Beth Bowley Applique Dress ($264), Beth Bowley Burnout Dress ($276), Shoshanna Delilah Dress ($340), Marlyn Schiff Teardrop Earrings ($30) and the Cara Multi Chain Silver Rhinestone Necklace ($78). That took me over $1,700, which I knew was impossible. Thankfully, I was picky with a few of the pieces â€“ the burnout dress was slightly too tight on my hips, the applique dress was a little too short and I have something very similar to the rhinestone necklace.
My final purchases were theÂ Shoshanna Delilah Dress ($340) and the Marlyn Schiff Teardrop Earrings ($30).
I really love the two things I kept, with my final puchase totaling $370. From this whole experience, the most important thing I learned was finding three new brands I love. I now know to keep my eye out for Milly, BethÂ Bowley and Shoshanna â€“ three labels that werenâ€™t on my radar prior to this experience. Since the styling itself is free, and youâ€™re under no obligation to keep anything you recieve in your box, Iâ€™d recommend everyone trying CakeStyle! At the very least, you can get a better idea of things you do and donâ€™t like without the time and energy wasted in a huge department store. Just be careful if you have a hard time saying no, because if the blue Milly dress fit me better, I definitely would have splurged on that, too!
Would you try a styling service like CakeStyle? Did you like the pieces Kait picked out for me?
