Styling with Stitch Fix #3

12.08.2014

It sure has been a while since I’ve been able to post! However it was for a good reason and that is the hubs and I traveled to Vail, Colorado for a friend’s wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony and I loved getting to see all of my friends from back home. Nothing like getting to spend the weekend with your favorite people! Also, I’ve never been to CO before and was very much looking forward to it. I told myself to soak in the winter as much as possible over my three day stay and it was great. As much as I loved the cold, snowy mountainous backdrop, I have to say I’m happy to be home in sunny CA. 

Here are some pictures from my trip...


Gotta love wedding photo booths!
 


While I was out of town it seems as though the lovely Stitch Fix fairy dropped off a package just waiting for me!

The last few boxes I have received some pretty great items (see post here and here) and this fix is no different. One aspect of this service that I LOVE is the fact that your stylist really listens to your wants and needs and does a great job at finding pieces you’ll love and, most importantly, what you’re looking for.

The number one tip I could tell anyone about using Stitch Fix is to leave honest and descriptive feedback. It’ll help your stylist get an idea of the pieces you’d like to see in your next box. Plus, always be sure to update your Pinterest board and leave information for your stylist in the description box about what you like/dislike. Pictures give your stylist an even better idea on what you’re going for.

For example, after receiving my last fix I wrote my stylist that due to my living in CA I needed more lighter layering items. Behold my box this month was filled with great lightweight pieces!  Let’s take a look shall we...

Once again I am super excited about seeing this green quilted vest in my box (see original post for my herringbone vest here)! It’s another item I’ve had my eye on and the best part is that it’s super lightweight, which makes it a PERFECT layering item for my CA weather! Today I styled my vest with my Banana Republic cable-knit sweater and my favorite statement necklace. Loved wearing this look!

The first top I found in my box was the Market & Spruce v-neck top. I’m loving the color but unfortunately I’m not loving the fit or cut of the top. I’m a bit top heavy (D cups, anyone?!) and the v-neck I found to be no so flattering. However, the material and color was right on what I was looking for. Perhaps I’d love the top more if it were a crew neck and not so fitted around the waist.

I love the chevron pattern and was excited to see this blouse in my box this month. It’s an adorable top but for me it fit a bit snug. Again, with my larger bust I need to be wary of button down blouses. Although I loved the pattern, the sizing was a bit off for me.

As a teacher one can not have too many cardigans. I’m loving this draped open cardigan! I received one in my last fix (see post here) and loved it and so I was happy to see it again but this time in a different color and material. It’s super lightweight and the draping accentuates my curvy figure perfectly!

Lastly, I fell in love with this plaid scarf that found itself tucked away in my box. The only issue for me was that the material was too chunky and thick, which made it hot to wear. If only I lived in NorCal where the temps can drop! Unfortunately I’ll have to send this item back but I’m very sad to do so!

Overall I’m so happy with my box and I had so much fun trying each item on! This time around I’m keeping my Market & Spruce quilted vest and Renee C open cardigan. I’m slowly building up my layering pieces of my wardrobe and am looking for finding new ways to wear them!


For a $20 styling fee, Stitch Fix hooks you and your wardrobe up by providing you with 5 items that are tailored to your personal style by a professional stylist. This service has been a game changer for me since I rarely get the time to go shopping for myself. The best part, you get to try each item on in the comfort and privacy of your own home. You have three days to decide which items you’re keeping and all you do is send the items you don’t want back to Stitch Fix via the prepaid shipping envelope that’s included in your box! You can opt for scheduled fixes or choose when you’d like to receive a fix each month.

I’ve found fashion love with this service and I know you will too!
