Styling with Stitch Fix

10.30.2014

For those of you out there that are still developing your style or you’re already rocking it, Stitch Fix is an amazing resource for finding those perfect pieces to either complete an outfit or completely style one for you. Tonight I wanted to revisit my first Stitch Fix, which I’ve blogged about at Sliding Into Second Grade

Let’s take a look at what I got...

I was so excited when I received my first fix! I had heard so much about my friends’ fixes and even across the teacher blogosphere I found that these stylists really capture your own personal style. When you initially sign up you complete a style survey and that informs your stylist of the basics that make up your everyday wardrobe from the things you like and things you don’t. What I love about it is that you can link your Pinterest board to your account, which gives your stylist an even broader and more specific look at what your personal style is. With that being said, my stylist hit right on the money with her first box!


My Fixes:
Kensie Jeans
41Hawthorne Herringbone Vest
41Hawthorne 3/4 Pop Over Blouse
Splendid Knit Top
Mavi Denim Jacket

One of the most popular fall vests this season is the JCrew inspired herringbone vest. I’ve seen this vest, and many variations, all over the place and it’s perfect for fall. The vest itself is light but warm enough when paired overtop a sweater or scarf. In the picture above I styled the vest with the Splendid striped knitted top, the Kensie skinny jeans, Tory Burch flats I own, and my JCrew Outlet statement necklace, but I’ve quickly found this vest practically goes with everything!

Here I played around with the pop over blouse and my JCrew outlet statement necklace.

For more inspiration with the herringbone vest check out these styles via Pinterest:

It’s always fun to see how many different ways you can use a few items from your closet and work them into many different looks. The herringbone vest is definitely a staple item since you can play with it in a number of different ways. Also, be willing to pay for quality items that will last you a long time and can be used over and over again throughout the season...or even years down the road! This vest is classic and don’t be surprised to see it pop up again in the future.

Stitch Fix has exposed me to a lot of great brands and styles that I may have otherwise looked over or not have bought for myself. You’re probably asking yourself if it’s worth the money. So, let’s take a look at the financials of it all.

With the $20 styling fee and the fact that you pay for what you keep, it makes for a good investment if you simply don’t have the time to go shopping yourself or you’re looking for new pieces or you’re wanting to change up your style. The convenience of it all is another huge plus. A prepaid shipping label and envelope is packed in your box for the items you don’t want to keep and all you do is drop it off at a UPS store within 3 days. Oh! And you get 25% off your entire order if you decide to keep all your fixes! Keep in mind that it isn’t necessarily probable that you’ll end up keeping all the items in your fixes every time but great if you do! In your style survey you determine how much you would like to spend  on average for each item such as shirts, pants, jackets, etc. That way you’re not stuck loving a shirt for hundreds of dollars but can’t justify the purchase. Stitch Fix really aims to work with your budget and deliver great items!
