Fixing and Remixing

My husband and I will be celebrating our one year wedding anniversary and 8 years together next month! In the last year and a half we have moved three times, bought two houses, sold one of them, started new jobs in a new state, and got married. Whoo, that is a lot! With all of that excitement our wallets have been feeling a little empty so instead of ordering a new Stitch Fix box this month I decided to restyle some old pieces to give my closet a fresh fall feel without spending any money! Each outfit below has at least one piece from Stitch Fix.

If you are not already a Stitch Fix junkie like me, go back and read my Stitch Fix Review posts to find out what it is all about. Keep reading for fall fashion inspiration.

  1. Sunday Church Outfit: Here I am wearing one of my favorite Stitch Fix pieces, my 41Hawthorn Jace Chevron Print Dress, with a cable knit sweater over it to add some warmth and to give the impression of wearing separates. I layered them over leggings and my Sam Edelman boots for a comfy, yet conservative church look. My purse is also from Stitch Fix.

Sweater: Bought at Kohl’s 4 years ago, similar sweater here
Necklace: From Rocksbox, try your first month free using my code whitneybff162 at checkout, similar necklace here 
Dress: This is a Stitch Fix exclusive and has this thick, stretchy, soft material like no other dress I have ever owned. I couldn’t find anything exactly like it, but this is a close as I got: from Amazon, from ModCloth 
Purse: I Got this Octavia Britta Suede Tassel Hobo Bag from Stitch Fix and love it. It reminds me of this designer bag but here are  few other, less expensive, versions: here and here.
Leggings: I got my fleece lined leggings from jane.com a year ago, but have heard many ladies love the VIV brand sold on Amazon. They say they are super soft and fit great. The sizing is comparable to Lu La Roe leggings. They have plus size as well!
Boots: These boots are leather and soft and comfortable. I got a wide calf size because, well, I have wide legs, but they have them in regular sizes too. I got mine when they were on sale for $50 so look for the sale prices!

 

2. Cozy & Creamy Outfit: I have been seeing a lot of tonal fall/winter outfits on the Stitch Fix Pinterest board. I was scrolling through their news pins and saw a bunch of gorgeous cream outfits. I was surprised that I liked them as much as I did because I am normally drawn to rich colors. There was something so cozy about the monochromatic look and I knew I had to try to recreate the look with pieces I already had. This Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse from Stitch Fix was ready to be layered with creamy goodness.

Shop the Look:
Vest: I got my vest from Marshall’s last year and lived in it all winter. I actually hadn’t worn it out of the house (it has been on repeat as my go to snuggle layer when lounging on the couch) yet this season but decided to try it with my cozy cream outfit and I think it works well! My students kept petting me, so I think they liked it too. Similar here and here
Necklace: I’ve had this simple pendant necklace for about a year. I got it in a subscription box that no longer exists. But I found this adorable whistle necklace that mimics the shape of mine.
Blouse: Like I mentioned above, my blouse is from Stitch Fix but ladies in the Facebook Stitch Fix discussion group swear this is the same shirt and it comes in about a bajillion colors. The sleeve details are so cute and feminine, you definitely need one, or three in your closet.  Plus sizes are available!
Skirt: I have had this skirt for a very long time and I cannot remember where I got it. It is just a simple khaki pencil skirt. Get a similar one here.
Watch: You can’t really see my watch, but it is gorgeous and rose gold and perfect for this outfit. Get the same one here,or one in silver here or gold here.
shoes: These shoes have sold out where I origianlly got them (Charlotte Russe) but I love the delicate ankle strap and pointed toe. Check out these, these and these if you like mine.

 

Botanical Biker Outfit: I have been wanting to pair a more delicate and feminine top with these edgy Pistola Audrey Moto Detail Skinny Pant from Stitch Fix. I like the idea of outfits where hard meets soft and I knew this purple floral top would be just perfect to pair with these pants. I threw on my studded mid-calf boots and Market &  Spruce Chaplin Anorak Jacket (also from Stitch Fix ) to complete my flowery biker babe look.

Shop the Look:
Jacket: I lovethis lightweight layer so much that I own this jacket in khaki and olive green. You can find a ton of colors here as well.
Blouse: This blouse is sold out but I found a few similar in cut or color here, here and here 
Necklace: I wear this simple bar pendant necklace all the time and own it in both silver and gold. Get one, or both, here.
Watch:  same Michael Kors watch pictured above. Told you I wear it a lot.
Olive Moto Skinnies: I got these from Stitch Fix and haven’t seem many like them. But here are a few options: here, here and here
Boots: These boots were a TJ Maxx find last year and are Madden Girl brand. I couldn’t find the exact boots but here are a few with the same overall look, by UGG here, by FRYE here, Dr. Scholl’s here and here with a western feel

 

I had so much fun restyling some of my old Stitch Fix pieces that I think posts like these will continue to happen in the future. If you, or someone you know, needs a little style makeover give them the gift of Stitch Fix this holiday season. Buy a Stitch Fix Gift Card for them now and stay tuned for a post later this month on how to get the most out of the Stitch Fix experience. Don’t forget, Stitch Fix carries men’s clothing and maternity styles as well.

Until next time,

I love you more than fixing and remixing,

Whitney
