Summer Style, a Stitch Fix July Review, our television appearance, and how to get great summer staples……
Every now and again……this little blog provides really out of the norm opportunities that seem like a dream. So, when the ladies at Stitch Fix sent over an email asking if I wanted to participate in a satellite media tour sharing summer trends and styling tips…..I had to say yes!
What does that mean? Don’t worry, I didn’t know either. Three of us bloggers and Stitch Fix lovers flew (or in my case drove) to Hollywood. We stayed in a fancy hotel, met with a stylist and were outfitted in our Stitch Fix gear live and in person. It was so fun to hear WHY they picked pieces for each of us based on our Stitch Fix profiles and history. I loved seeing the team outfit three different women in outfits that we each loved.

In case you aren’t already a Stitch Fix nut…….a bit about the service: Stitch Fix is a personalized styling service that sends five pieces to your doorstep. The great thing? When you join, you fill out an extensive styling profile. You can request certain items or even ask for options for a specific event. You choose how often you get a fix (for me it’s once a month). In the comfort of your own home, you try on all items. Then you keep what you love, and send back the rest…..and all with free shipping! There is a $20 styling fee, but you can use that $20 as a credit towards any of the items you keep. And YES, you can set a price range you feel comfortable with.
So what happens when three bloggers, one Hollywood stylist, and the Stitch Fix team are together for 24 hours? A couple bottles of wine, a marathon styling session, FOURTEEN television appearances across the country, and bonding with women I never would have met otherwise. I had a total blast, I didn’t trip and fall on live television, and I fell in love with the women behind Stitch Fix. I can truly tell you, these women not only have great style…..but great hearts. They genuinely care about their customers, and want every woman to feel beautiful in their own skin.
This dress the team picked out? I’m absolutely in love. It’s a great fitting staple that I can wear year round….and that’s EXACTLY what I needed. The best part? I probably wouldn’t have pulled it off the rack while shopping on my own.So, I asked the ladies from Stitch Fix why they picked it……what info did they have from me that helped them make such a great choice. Honestly? This entire outfit? Was perfection in my book. I loved every piece.
What did they say? A few things helped them REALLY narrow down my style and needs.
I linked my Pinterest account to my Stitch Fitch account, and made an outfits I love for Stitch Fix board. Not long before our trip, I had pinned a BUNCH of new pieces to that board. It reminded me to go in every week or so and update that board with new items.
I gave VERY specific feedback on my older fixes. What I loved about pieces I kept, and why I didn’t love other items.
I ASKED for a staple piece. If you want something specific (like a sundress or a little black dress) ask for it in the notes section of your Stitch Fix request!
