Fix #9

After my flop of a fix last month I thought perhaps I needed to give Stitch Fix a little break. As everyone else in the world has been transitioning to Fall, complete with cooler temps and cute seasonal clothes, those of us in warmer climates haven't been as lucky in the weather department. BUT! As of late Mother Nature has gotten her act together, cooler temps have been making cameo appearances, and I figured it was time to see if I couldn't give the wardrobe a little freshening up for this season.

I put a request in for my stylist Raquel (hiiiii!) to once again put together my fix. I was fortunate that she was back for a seventh time. 
For this fix I mentioned the temps have been dropping (praise the Lord), I've been on the hunt for a cute vest, a good pair of skinny jeans, perhaps a flannel top, and booties to round out my closet. 

Raquel does THE best job personalizing every fix. She remembers previous requests, does a fantastic job sifting through my Pinterest boards, and over all does an outstanding job.
Raquel is good. But this time? This time Raquel NAILED IT.

As soon as I picked my package up (which arrived two days early!) I immediately knew by the size and weight shoes were in my future. 

Let's take a look....
BRIXON IVY || MISTRAL COLD SHOULDER TUNIC
This beauty has been an elusive unicorn of mine for some time now. I have it pinned (probably 50 times?), and while I try not to ask for specific items, this is the one top I've mentioned by name. Raquel tracked it down for me. The lace over lay, the cold shoulder, the adjustable straps. I truly just swoon over it all. 

Verdict || KEPT
I know Fall will be sticking around for a while, but I'm sure L.A. will toss out a few hot days every now and again. When that happens this will be the first thing I grab.


KUT FROM THE KLOTH || DARIO ONE POCKET TOP
MARKET & SPRUCE || JAHANA CARGO VEST
KUT FROM THE KLOTH || DAYNA SKINNY JEAN
SEYCHELLES || LASER CUT BOOTIE
This entire outfit looks like countless outfits I have pinned on my Pinterest board. I wouldn't be surprised if this exact outfit is pinned several times. 

The top! The flannel top is cut so well. I've tried on countless tops that seem to just hang like a sack. This one does not. It's not super heavy, which means it will get lots more wear in the warmer Southern California temps.

THAT VEST! I have been hunting for a vest to love for ages. This one has all my wardrobe dreams coming true. 

The jeans! I know I've said it before, but I have no idea how Stitch Fix manages to find the best jeans. These skinnies fit perfectly and have just the right amount of give to them. These will be on frequent rotation, no doubt.

The booties! The color is so versatile. The heel isn't high, which means I'll still be able to chase children around yet maintain comfort. The laser cut detail is such a nice touch, it really gives the booties a little boost of character. These will complete countless outfits, for sure. 
This whole outfit just feels like Fall, and I was beaming when I pulled it all together. 

Verdict || I KEPT IT ALL

My first 5/5, and I could not be more thrilled about my haul!

Tell me! What do you think? Did you love each piece as much as me? Anything you would have sent back? Drop me a line in the comments and let me know.

Are you a Stitch Fixer? No? *gasp* Let's change that!

For $20 a box, a personal stylist will hook you up with some fun, cute clothes. If you love what's sent your way, the $20 is then applied to your total. Don't love anything? The $20 is about the cost of gas to head to and from the mall. Toss in the mandatory Starbucks you grab while shopping at said mall, and you've easily spent $20. Not to mention, you get to have a little fashion show in the comfort of your own home (it is so awesome to be able pull pieces from your closet and jewelry box to see if they'll go well with a Stitch Fix item). Wins all around, if you ask me.

Give it a go! Stitch Fix is easily one of the most fun things I've done for myself, and each time I see a box at my door my day is made!
