StitchFix Vacay


A few weeks ago I had the honor of flying out to San Francisco to be a part of a fabulous Stitch Fix weekend (#stitchfixvacay). I could write a whole post about how wonderful they treated us, all the great meals and crazy fun we had, but what I really want to talk about is how impressed I was with the company itself. As a business and an employer, Stitch Fix seems pretty top notch. I’ve used Stitch Fix for over a year now. I get a box (or a fix) every month, try it all on, pay for what I like, send back what I don’t. Itโ€™s all fun but Iโ€™ve never really had any personal connection to the company, or had I thought about how it started, how it runs, or the awesome employees behind each box. What I loved most about the weekend was seeing and meeting all the people who make Stitch Fix so great. I really gained so much respect for the company. What a cool place to work. Everyone seemed so happy and genuine. Cotile and Hege (2 of the most fabulous employees and the ladies responsible for such a wonderful weekend) really listened to suggestions, answered questions honestly and just shined with pride for this start up company thatโ€™s really leading the way in their industry. We got to visit their offices, talk with some of their stylists and buyers and had a really fun photoshoot with items from their fall inventory. We also spent a morning in their giant warehouse called “The Hizzy”. It was a whirlwind few days but ooooh so fun!

If you don’t use Stitch Fix but would like to try it out, here are some tips for making sure you get the most out of your fixes each month…


Leave as much feedback as you can. Why you liked it, why you didn’t like it, what you wished it was like, how well did it fit. Be as specific as you can! At the end when you can leave a note to a stylist don’t feel bad writing exactly what you are looking for. They will for sure do their best. I always write things like… I would love a chunky cable knit sweater, a dark high rise denim, a delicate gold necklace, etc…


Create a pin board just for Stitch Fix. Make sure you link to it in your style profile. This is a great place to be extra specific. Especially if you see a blogger wearing something from Stitch Fix that you would love to try. Pin their photo onto the pin board and write “I would love to try this shirt”. If they still have that style and your size they will try to get it for you! Also when you pin fashion pictures be sure in the description to write what you like about it. Every little bit helps the stylist understand what kind of things you are looking for and what your style is like.


Be open to trying new things. Your stylist will send items they think will be good for you- don’t brush them off before you even try them. They may surprise you!


Keep your profile current and tweak it when needed. Have you lost weight, gained weight, or sort of changed your style preferences? Keep your profile up to date.

I had no obligations to write this post for Stitch Fix. All opinions are my own. I was just thoroughly impressed with the company and wanted to share about our time there.

Thanks to Cotile, Hege, Margaret, Alexandra, Veronika, Natalia, Kylie, Molly, Jill and Erin for making the weekend so fun and special. Loved getting to know you girls.

Extra special thanks to Molly for letting me use some of her awesome pictures!
