A few weeks ago I was introduced to StylistPick, I know it has been around for a while, but I am a touchy-feely type of gal, and it was nice to see what the monthly fashion membership programme had coming up for spring 2012.
What I liked before I saw the styles for next season had to be the price, as most of the items on the site are £39.95, and all come with free delivery and returns – not bad for a personalised style service from a-list stylists including Grace Woodward.
What I loved after seeing the pieces up close was the high quality. When you see knee-high boots or shearling-lined ankle boots for under £40 I have to admit I’m always a little dubious, but trust me each trend-led style is a bargain as they have all been developed to the highest standard.
Not everything was to my taste, and I am sure there will be styles that you don’t like as well, which is why each new member is asked to complete a style quiz, then the StylistPick style team accesses your requirements and picks out the shoes and handbags that will work with your style. Each month you get new picks, and the best bit is there is never any obligation to buy, you can skip the month before the 6th, in any month, as many times as you like.
It is also nice that for your first purchase that you get 25% off – so that bargain pair of shoes that was only £39.99 will only be £29.95 – seriously can’t go wrong with that. You also collect ‘Style Points’ each time you buy something and for every referral, just like a chic Tesco clubcard, when you hit 1,000 points you get a free item.
The only thing you need to learn is get it quick, as once that month is done that style isn’t coming back, I have just learnt that by not buying a pair of boots from my November showroom.

I was completely sold on all the cute shoes coming for spring, from the patent ankle strap courts above, to the platform sandals and the gorgeous snake and floral print shoes. But what I was most impressed with were the bags, I loved every single one coming in the early part of 2012, my favourite being this colour-block Gladstone bag, I just adore its vintage touch.
There is even a drawstring bucket bag called Danielle coming up next season, stupidly I didn’t seem to snap that one but in the lookbook it definitely looks like something I will need to add to my collection.
StylistPick is also unveiling something a little special tomorrow, Cheryl Cole’s debut accessories collection, yep that’s right Girls Aloud singer and former X Factor judge is stepping into fashion and trust me it is going to be huge, will have touches of leopard print and will most certainly surprise!!!
The premium collection launches on December 6, and no pictures will be released until then, but I do have two sneak peek videos, which give an insight into the line and shows how much Chezza was involved in the process.
Do let me know if you are already a member of StylistPick, I have got my first pair of shoes some gorgeous flats that I need to share with you all, but I will do that in another post.
