Stitch Fix: October Edition

Oh man are these Denver leaves amazing this year.
​I'm so glad it's fall, and I'm trying to soak up all this nice cool-but-not-cold weather before its time for snow and freezing temps.

So, I had seen ads about Stitch Fix floating around and didn't really know what it was, but I finally decided to give it a try.

 Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that is designed to fit your style and budget. If you're like me, you've seen a lot of different companies offering monthly style subscription boxes or pieces that you can rent and then send back. Stitch fix is all of that and neither....but the best of both options.

You start by filling out a style profile that includes basic info about your size and style preferences, but also gets more specific and asks you about how you like your clothes to fit (i.e. loose on top, fitted on bottom), what items you usually like to splurge vs save on, and which parts of you that you like to flaunt or downplay.

You can also add a specific note about anything you think your stylist should know, from your workplace dress code to whether you are a i-love-accessories or keep-it-simple kind of girl.

Your personal stylist uses this profile to pick out the perfect pieces for you. You then schedule your "fix" which can be just an occasional, when you want it thing or reoccurring, like monthly. You get a box in the mail with all the goodies selected just for you. Then you try them on and decide what to keep and what to send back. 
 

My October Fix:

 
​I got 5 things total in my fix, but here are the three I'm keeping:
 

JEANS: Liza Skinny Jean by Lila Ryan

Oh my goodness you guys. The second I put on these jeans it was like they had been my favorite pair forever. They are the perfect thickness and have a great balance of stretch to holding their shape.

TOP: Sena Bar Back Blouse by 41Hawthorn

​This top is fantastic. I love the shape of the scoop back. The bars across the back not only add some interest, but also help the top to stay put and not fall forward. I also like how there is a longer shirttail in the back, and that the front is has just one simple pleat.

BAG: Naven Diamond Print Reversible Tote by Under One Sky

Ok this tote is so fun. I was badly in need of a tote for fall, since most of the totes I own are for beach days. I love the print, plus its leather and REVERSIBLE! I don't think I've ever seen, much less owned, a reversible leather bag. It also comes with a zip tote inside it.
 
 
The fix also comes with a personal note from your stylist.
My stylist, Kate, talked about why she picked each piece for me, how to style it based on the current nice fall we are having, and how to warm up that style once freezing CO temps set in. style guide that gives you ideas for how to style the pieces you got.

To be honest I had a lot of  doubts about someone I don't know picking out things that would fit in with my style, but honestly it worked out great! The style profile is specific enough to where my stylist knew just what I needed!

Here's why Stitch Fix is my new favorite way to shop:

​1. NO MORE BORING

Each piece is hand-picked by a stylist meaning I'm getting on-trend pieces I'll love while also being pushed to try new things I wouldn't normally pick for myself.

2. WARDROBE CONTEXT

Ever try something on in store and wish you could see what it would look like with those one pair of pants, or booties you have in your closet at home? Now you can. Since you try on your Stitch Fix pieces at home, you get to experiment with how you would actually wear it and work it with pieces you already have. This means that adventurous piece your stylist might send you isn't so scary after all.

3. TIME + CONVIENIENCE

So I don't always have time to try on new / different things when I shop. Half the time I just stick with my same same cuts and styles that I know are flattering. So having new pieces just show up at my door as often as I want? Sign me up. This is also perfect for moms who barely have time to go shopping as it is, much less try things on while also wrangling the littles in the store
