My February Stitch Fix has arrived which means it is almost time for me to visit Stitch Fix headquarters! That’s right, I am headed to San Francisco for a conference on Learning and the Brain and while I am there I am going to stop by Stitch Fix to check it out! I am so excited to see where the magic happens!
If you have been reading my blog for awhile you know I love Stitch Fix, a personal styling service that sends you five hand-selected pieces straight to your door after you have paid a $20 styling fee. The fee is then credited back to any pieces you keep from the fix. Before your stylist picks your items they read the note you write that lets them know about any upcoming events you may have or trends and styles you really want to try. Then your stylist can check out your style inspiration on a Pinterest board that contains actual pieces you want to try. Here is the official Stitch Fix Pinterest and my Pinterest Board full of Stitch Fix pieces. Once your Fix gets to you, you have 3 days to try it on and decide what to keep. If you keep everything you get 25% off!

This month I requested on trend items to wear for my trip to San Francisco. I filled my Pinterest board with moto jackets and floral prints. Let’s see what my stylist, Jason, sent!
- Just Black Joey Skinny Jeans-Light Purple, Size 10, $88
These pants are so soft, and are super long! Since I have such long legs getting pants that are long enough is always so exciting. Petites beware, I rolled these three times to get the cuff! I had fun styling these for spring. It has been COLD by Pacific Northwest standards and today was the first day in a long time that the sun was shining and it was above 38 degrees, so styling for spring made me long for more days like this. You will see more spring ensembles with these pants later in the post. These pants photograph purple. But in reality they were more of a light blue/grey with a hint of purple. If these had been as purple as they are in pictures in real life I would have kept them in a minute. But they seemed more like light wash blue jeans and I couldn’t justify keeping them.
2.Project Social T Murphie Graphic Knit Top-Grey, Size M, $34
When I pulled this shirt out of my box I was completely surprised. Like Jason mentioned in his note, Stitch Fix does not often have graphic tees. This shirt was SO soft. I normally don’t like my t-shirts to be fitted, but this one was surprisingly flattering. I liked the scoop neck and the longer sleeves. Of course I tried it with the Just Black jeans seen above and loved the look. I also tried to replicate the outfit on the right of the style card that came with my Fix. The cargo jacket and boyfriend jeans worn in this outfit are both from Stitch Fix. Even though I had fun styling this piece, I ended up selling it to a friend. I am not a huge coffee drinker and so the words on the tee just didn’t fit me. Had it said, “Books & Rainy Days” instead it would have been a definite keeper. I am still so glad Jason sent it because I love to try the new styles Stitch Fix has in their inventory.
3. Marc New York Antalya Faux Suede Jacket-Light Grey, Size L, $98
Jason was able to snag me this gorgeous moto jacket and I was so happy when I pulled it out of the box. The very light grey color was super versatile and the jacket had a ton of stretch. I loved it styled dressed up with a pencil skirt and dressed down with the graphic tee and skinny jeans that came in this fix. When my husband saw this jacket he was not sold on the light color thinking about how hard it would be to keep clean. But when he saw it paired with the light purple jeans he said, “I have to admit you look pretty cool in that outfit.” I thought so too. But I just didn’t love the fit of the jacket. It felt a little boxy and the asymmetrical zipper just wasn’t my thing. I am wondering if a smaller size would have been better. I sent this beauty back and will keep asking for moto jackets until I find the perfect one.
4. Kaileigh Viktoria Knit Dress-Navy, Size L, $48
I love this dress. The floral print, the colors, the criss-cross detail in the front; all of these things are all very “me.” The fabric reminded me of very soft, lightweight sweatshirt material. This dress isn’t clingy and it is made in the USA! I’d say the background color is a heathered navy, not a true navy, which made me like it even more. I loved the length of this dress, even though it might be a little shorter than I usually like it still seemed conservative enough. If I was wearing this to work I would wear leggings or opaque tights under it. But for a casual weekend look bare legs were fine! It looks cute on its own and with the moto jacket from this fix. I can’t wait to try it with a blazer, belted and with taller boots. This dress is a total keeper. I am so happy to add it to my closet. If you are thinking about requesting this dress, you might want to consider sizing down, especially if you are in between sizes, as this large was roomy and I think a medium would have been just as flattering. I just couldn’t wait to wear it long enough to ask for an exchange (which Stitch Fix will gladly do for you!).
5. Bay to Baubles Mollie Natural Stone Chevron Pendant-Light Pink, $34
I loved the light pink color and shape of the stone in this necklace. The hardware was more bronze than true gold which was a nice touch. It looked great with everything in this fix. The only problem was, the piece above the stone that held the chain together was crooked. No matter how hard I tried I could not overlook it. So sadly, this piece went back.
