About

Now offering Designer Mystery Boxes for Men and Women!!

If you've ever wanted to hire a wardrobe stylist, but didn't think you had the money to pay for the service or the clothing options he or she recommends, you've unfortunately never met us. :)

Hi! We're Jacqui, Nicole, and Adam: a styling and design team from Cambridge, MA. We're all obsessed with fashion, styling, and value, so we thought we'd start a business that combines all three! Enter the Designer Mystery Box. 

Four years ago, Jacqui started selling Designer Mystery Boxes on a very popular auction website to thin out her overflowing storage space that was full of clothing, shoes, handbags, and accessories of all sizes. Soon, she was bombarded with emails asking for more opportunities to purchase these specially-tailored boxes outside of that auction site. Busy with her commercial styling business, she swept the idea under the rug, until she met Nicole and Adam. The three bonded over their love of acquiring beautiful designer items, and decided to share that passion with the world.

Purchase one of our discounted Designer Mystery Boxes, and here is what will happen:

You'll fill out our easy-to-follow style profile. This will help us determine your true size and style. Also, you'll get to send us your wish list! We want to know what your top-coveted items are this season, and we'll do our best to find them for you!

If you happen to be an unusual size (we generally carry misses US 0-12, and shoe sizes US 5-11), please shoot us an email before you make a purchase so that we can make sure that we have ample items to fill a fabulous Mystery Box for you!

• You will receive at least three items. Each item will be BRAND NEW or in EXCELLENT USED CONDITION (if an item has been previously worn, it will be appropriately cleaned prior to shipment).

• Your Mystery Box will have a combined retail value of more than $500. We will provide a detailed description of the item's retail value and some simple styling tips.

• We have expensive taste. 

• You can choose to receive Designer Mystery Box monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly. Need a closet boost once every three months instead of monthly? No problem. You receive Designer Mystery Box on your schedule.

You can return whatever doesn't suit you. We want you to love your Mystery Box, and we guarantee each item to be authentic and in excellent condition. Don't like something? That's okay! You can keep your entire box for $149, you can keep one thing at our special member price and return the rest, or return the whole box with free return shipping for a full refund! There is no stylist fee for Designer Mystery Box, and individual items are still deeply discounted at 50-70% off retail or more.

• Here's what past recipients of Designer Mystery Box have said:

"GASP! OMGosh! Love this lady! Her work is dead on perfection! Thank you!!!!"
"OMG! Totally Fabulous! Very talented stylist! Bid with confidence,great service!!!!"
"Absolutely Amazing! Methodical, attentive, professional, amazingly perfect! XOXO"
"Amazing stylist, meticulous attention to detail, LOVE!!! Fabulous experience!"

To begin our new budget styling service, we will need to obtain storage, keep the lights and heat/AC on, build and maintain our website, and set up our shipping center. You can help by supporting our Kickstarter, and in return, you'll receive our product: your own Designer Mystery Box! Check out our incentives in the sidebar. Our first boxes are slated to ship in late December/early January, just in time for holiday festivities (mid-February for men's boxes). Designer Mystery Boxes also make great gifts!

Thanks for looking, and hopefully supporting our new endeavor! We look forward to crafting an amazing Mystery Box just for you. :)

Risks and challenges

Acquisition will be the biggest challenge for our business going forward. Luckily, sourcing beautiful new things is something that we already do every day. Our website also needs to be clean and easy to navigate, so hiring the right designer is incredibly important.
