Catch the Trend with ...


       At Clos-ette, we are no strangers to accessories.  We love love love accessories to transform any outfit!  If you're the same way, you need to check out Send the Trend.  You fill out a survey, based on your style, and for only $30 you'll have a fabulous accessory sent to you that was picked out specially for you by an expert stylist! When we heard of Send the trend, we jumped at the opportunity to find out more about this awesome company. To tell us more about Send the Trend we interviewed the fabulous Mariah Chase to get an inside look.
  Hi Mariah! We are so excited to let our readers know more about Send the Trend. So let's get started! Where did the idea for Send the Trend come from? 
   The main idea came from our CEO and Co-Founder, Divya Gugnani.  She
envisioned an easier way for the time-pressed woman (i.e. all of us!)
to shop.  As someone who shopped exclusively online and had always
worked in accessories, when she approached me - I just knew I had to
be involved. We launched in October of this year.

Where does the inspiration for your products come from?
Everything!  We watch the runways in NY, London, Paris and Milan and
of course Christian has an amazing point of view and creative vision.
That said, we're equal opportunity inspirationists!

If there was a style you felt the trend, leans towards what would it be?
It seems our customer loves feminine, girly details, i.e. pearls and
baubles.  On the whole, she's a little glam, classic & trendy.
Personally, I veer towards accessories with clean, bold lines that
have a little sweetness & amp; edge - kind of a Roger Vivier meets Eddie
Borgo look.

What do you love best about Send the Trend? 
The team - we have so much fun everyday I can't believe it's work!
Also, I love love love jewelry, so to play with, research, create
jewelry for a living is magical.

 What if I have multiple style choices?
You may change your style survey anytime you like. So if you are looking for evening accessories, you may take the survey to reflect formal evening attire. If you are looking for work accessories, you may take the survey to reflect accessories that would compliment your business wardrobe. Each time you log onto our website the accessory choices that will appear will be from the most recent completed survey.

What if I don’t want a new accessory every month?
Not everyone wants a new accessory each month. If you'd like to skip a month, all you need to do is log in to your account by the 5th day of the month and click the "Skip This Month" button and you will not be charged for that month. The "Skip This Month" button is only available from the 1st through the 5th day of each month. Skipping a month has no negative consequences and you will, of course, be welcome to return to your gallery and purchase an item for the next month. If you haven't purchased accessories from Send the Trend before, your credit card will not be charged and you do not need to request to skip a month.

Can I return an accessory if I'm not happy with it?
We want everyone to be 100% happy with their purchases, so if you don’t like what you buy for any reason, you can return it for a Send the Trend account credit at no extra charge.

 Any style advice for our readers?
Find a signature look you love & feel great in -  and then build off
of that look.  You can experiment and take risks knowing that you've
always got a "safe" place to return to.  For me, that signature is a
tomboy-ish silhouette in shades of navy, black, blush & grey accented
with 1-2 key, bold accessories.
