CakeStyle is one of those space-age startups that seems so obvious in hindsight: After giving CakeStyle your fit and wardrobe needs, ladies can receive a box of hand-selected outfits in the mail. Anything they don't want can be sent back (the shipping is free), as are the discussions with stylists to figure out what might be a better fit -- literally.
Oh, and there's also a video that comes with each shipment explaining how to wear each look. All in all, it's a pretty nifty business located right here in Chicago that also serves clients everywhere. And here's a look at the Loop-based company. Enjoy!
