So it’s November and I still don’t understand how that happened! I feel like I’ve been seeing holiday decorations up for weeks and I’m just not ready for it all! Plus, here in LA it’s still 80 degrees and sunny on the forecast so you’ve got do something to get into the spirit of the season. One way to do it - refresh your wardrobe!
When Stitch Fix reached out to me, I was happy to partner with them and give their service a try for the first time! I took maybe 10 minutes or so to fill out the detailed style profile and they sent me a personalized Winter Fix!
The style profile helps the Stitch Fix stylists take your body shape and style preferences and curate a fix just for you. You pay $20 for each fix, and if you decide to keep and purchase any of the pieces you can apply that $20 towards your purchase. In other words, you haven’t lost a cent! And if you love everything you get a 25% discount on your entire fix.
My Winter Fix came in 2 boxes that included jeans, jackets, tops, sweaters, a dress, and a purse (which I especially excited about!) A typical fix comes with 5 pieces, but they sent me double so I could show you the variety they have!
I found that there were a lot of interchangeable looks as well as some great basics that would work in any season. Here is how I styled them!
First look: All 3 of these pieces came from my fix! Thankfully the denim fit perfectly! In my profile I said I loved a skinny jean and they got it right. The flannel top was super soft and I loved the fact that it fit my curves well and wasn’t boxy. The shirt and jacket are great layering pieces but if it stays warm through the winter the top works great on its own!
Second look: these fitted black jeans and burgundy sweater are 2 pieces I can use for so many looks! I paired them with a strappy tank for an LA fall night out look - not too fancy, not too casual - dinner and drinks vibes. I’m especially in love with this clutch! I’m not often one for an all over animal print (more power to you ladies who are!), but I love a classy touch of it. The Stitch Fix stylist got my vibe right with the look of this great quality bag. My only wish is that it had an optional wrist or shoulder strap! (Without one I’m the type that will lose my purse and be the one crying at the bar…) The great thing is, they want to help make your fixes better each time so their stylists want to hear your feedback!
Third look: cozy-central! This soft roomy sweater worked great with the jeans from look one, and I paired them with a winter boot from my own closet and finished the look off with a wintery red lip. I love the choice of the heather gray-ish color and I can tell from the entire fix that they definitely listened to my preferences for neutrals and jewel tones.
Final look! And also my favorite :) One thing I wanted to make sure the stylist knew is that I am proud of my shape at this point in my life and I love showing off my arms, waist, and hips. When I pulled this cowl neck fitted dress out of the box I knew it would look great on. I added my own boots and a thin black belt just to further emphasize my shape. Then this military-inspired jacket is just beautiful.
My take on Stitch Fix? It’s dangerously convenient! Think about it - you’re submitting an extensive list of personal preferences, and without having the shop around on a bunch of different websites or spend hours at the mall, for just that $20 you get a box with several different items sent to you to try on. They have some great quality brands and carry up to size 24W or 3X. You might receive pieces you that you wouldn’t have picked for yourself, or you might get something that’s exactly up your alley. If you don’t love what they pick for you or it’s out of your price range, you can send it back at no additional cost and give them the feedback they need to get it right the next time. In my case, they sent me 10 pieces and I see myself keeping 9 out of 10! The only problem is going to be finding room in my closet!
