Stitch Fix wins

Hi! How’s the day going? Loving the giveaway entries from this morning. I’ve enjoyed reading them so much, and each one has brought a huge smile to my face! I’ll pick the winner this Sunday night and announce in Monday’s am post.

I’m excited to share my latest Stitch Fix (<—referral link) with you guys, as it’s one of my favorites in quite a while. The best thing about this one: it included a casual mix of clothes that I would wear on a daily basis, instead of dressy or date night pieces (which I love, but everyday clothes get more use). Since receiving it this week, I’ve worn every piece, minus a dress that I’m thinking may have been a mistake.  More details ahead… 

(If you’re a Stitch Fix client, you can pin any of these pieces onto your style board to request from your stylist. If you’re curious to learn more about Stitch Fix, here’s my first post ever and my most recent fix. Also, I’ll be doing a wall/winter capsule-ish wardrobe update once the weather cools down. For now, I’ve been sticking with many of my summer staples.)

#1: Market and Spruce Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee

I usually don’t love hi-lo, but this one is not severe at all. The shirt is very soft and comfy; I know I’ll wear it a lot this fall with jackets and jeans, or with a skirt and booties.

(worn with my burgundy Tory Burch skinnies and cheetah flats)

#2 Amour Vert Priscilla Floral Print V-Neck Silk Blouse

Maybe it’s the “mom style” in me, but I love, love button-up blouses. 😉 They’re flattering, they look polished (even when I’m makeup-free and my hair is in a messy bun) and versatile. I usually just wear them with sandals and jeans, like below:

Flower top  1 of 1

 (with black skinnies and Tory sandals)

Daniel Rainn Taya Flutter Sleeve Silk Blouse

Turquise tank  1 of 1

(with Kut from the Kloth boyfriend jeans that I thrifted + Juil flats)

 Gorjana Juliette Bird Charm Necklace

Bird necklace  1 of 1

Hailey 23 Hailee Twist Waist Textured Sheath Dress

This one I was kind of “meh” about when I removed it from the box, mostly because I don’t like the twist waist look. My waist is lower than most clothing styles dictate, so it leaves anything with a set waist point to look kind of awkward. I ended up keeping this one for a few reasons: if you get everything in your box, you save 25%, so it was a freebie. The fabric is dreamy, and I could see myself wearing it more as a skirt throughout the winter with a luxe sweater over it or fun jacket. Looking at the pic though, I think “oh no.”

You win some, you lose some. Haha.

Hope you have a lovely night! I’d love to hear about any shopping successes or fails lately 🙂 Any styles you’re loving for fall? 

xoxo

    I love the grey dress! I think it looks amazing on you 🙂

    • Fitnessista on October 10, 2014 at 5:56 pm

      oh thank you! <3

      • NG on October 10, 2014 at 6:25 pm

        I agree, I think that dress looks fantastic on you!

        • Fitnessista on October 10, 2014 at 6:52 pm

          • lindsey on October 11, 2014 at 12:03 am

            if you AREN’T comfortable in it, I bet you could go to a seamstress, add a waistband to the skirt and there ya go! It’s one thing to hear you look great in something – if you don’t feel it, it’s hard to love it!! (oh and you could make a ton of girl headbands from the rest, haha. ) LOVE all the tops!!



    • AJ on October 10, 2014 at 10:07 pm

      I think it looks great too! Love it!

      • Kathy on October 11, 2014 at 10:44 am

        Agree with Lindsey – you have to feel good in it. But I think you LOOK great in it too!

  2. Lauren on October 10, 2014 at 5:52 pm

    You’re crazy, that dress looks adorable on you. Just wanted to put my 2 cents in, have a great weekend!

    • Fitnessista on October 10, 2014 at 5:55 pm

      ohh thank you! hope you have a great weekend too <3

  3. Erin @ Her Heartland Soul on October 10, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    I love that first outfit. The burgundy pants are gorgeous!

    Where are your shoes from in the last pic? They’re really cute!

    • Fitnessista on October 10, 2014 at 5:55 pm

      thank you so much!
      they’re from just fab 🙂 super comfy too!

  4. Katie on October 10, 2014 at 6:05 pm

    I think the grey dress is adorable, and looks great on you! They always get you with that 5th piece. I can’t stomach losing money just because I don’t love it 🙂

  5. Amie on October 10, 2014 at 6:06 pm

    that dress is lovely on you! I want it! Definitely a keeper!

  6. Maryz on October 10, 2014 at 6:07 pm

    Love all of these! You are so stylish! I love StitchFix because I have no ability to dress myself and they always send me cute stuff I would never ever try on. The dress is really cute and looks fantastic on you!

  7. Lisa @ Life as Lisa Knows It on October 10, 2014 at 6:10 pm

    I think you look GORGEOUS in the Sheath Dress! 🙂

  8. Lauren on October 10, 2014 at 6:15 pm

    Oh my goodness, that dress look FANTASTIC on you. Definitely dressier than the other pieces, but it looks amazing 🙂

    • Fitnessista on October 10, 2014 at 6:53 pm

      thanks, lauren! i appreciate the kind words. i was embarrassed to post it haha. hope you have a great weekend!

  9. Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment on October 10, 2014 at 6:19 pm

    I really like the gray dress! I think it would be a perfect for a dressier date night or an event/party. I love the high/low top with the red jeans. They’re on my shopping list for fall clothes!

    • Fitnessista on October 10, 2014 at 6:52 pm

      it’s going to be a staple outfit for sure! thank you for the compliment on the dress, too.

  10. Linda @ the Fitty on October 10, 2014 at 6:34 pm

    I can’t seem to see the “high low” of the high low tee?

    • Fitnessista on October 10, 2014 at 6:46 pm

      it’s pretty much nonexistent haha, which is why i like it

  11. nickee on October 10, 2014 at 6:59 pm

    OMG the grey dress is my favorite piece from your box. It looks lovely on you 🙂

    • Marena on October 13, 2014 at 7:18 am

      I second this sentiment!

  12. Ashley @ A Lady Goes West on October 10, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    The gray dress is actually my favorite thing you show above. Looks very comfortable yet chic. Hope you have a great weekend!

  13. Anita on October 10, 2014 at 8:03 pm

    I think all the pieces look great on you, especially the dress!

  14. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on October 10, 2014 at 8:13 pm

    I like the gray dress too! Funny how we see ourselves different than others do. I’m really into dresses lately. I used to wear a ton of pants and skirts. Somehow dresses are my thing. Athleta or BcBG are usually winners.

  15. Brie @ Lean, Clean, & Brie on October 10, 2014 at 8:52 pm

    LOVE the blouses you received! They look so great on you!

  16. Katy on October 10, 2014 at 8:53 pm

    100% truth: You look uh-mazing in that dress; so glad you kept it!

  17. Brittany on October 10, 2014 at 9:26 pm

    That dress looks fab on you! Glad you kept it. 🙂

  18. Ali on October 10, 2014 at 9:52 pm

    That dress is great -it makes your legs look super long!

  19. Traci on October 10, 2014 at 10:44 pm

    I love the dress, but if you’re uncomfortable with the waist style you could wear a variety of things over the top part to disguise it. I can’t imagine wearing sandals right now! It’s all boots all the time October-March for me in the midwest.

  20. Jess on October 10, 2014 at 11:17 pm

    Love the grey dress too although the blouses are def my fave! Very flattering and put together!

  21. Ali on October 10, 2014 at 11:46 pm

    You look fantastic in that dress.
    I had to giggle at your comment about waiting for the weather to cool down. As a SoCal native, I can tell you that this probably is your winter capsule if you just throw on a light sweater. My kids didn’t wear long pants all school year last year.

  22. Becky on October 11, 2014 at 12:36 am

    I never knew Tory Burch made jeans!! My mind is blown. lol now I feel like I NEED some!

    • Fitnessista on October 11, 2014 at 1:29 am

      They are HEAVENLY too! 🙂

  23. Karissa on October 11, 2014 at 2:05 am

    Woohoo stitch fix!! I have basically no fashion sense, so I am also a ‘fix admirer.
    Those pieces all look GREAT on you, including the dress!! I think it’s flattering on you – BUT if you don’t feel comfortable in it after a time or 2 of wearing it, eh don’t push it.

  24. Vanessa on October 11, 2014 at 5:43 am

    I agree with everyone else. I think the grey dress was the most flattering piece from the box. But it’s all about how you feel in it, right?

  25. Ash Bear on October 11, 2014 at 7:08 am

    If you don’t LOVE the dress than use it in the way you know you’ll like – a leather jacket or a wrap sweater would be great especially in a deep, Fall burgundy or plum!

  26. Katie @ Talk Less, Say More on October 11, 2014 at 7:53 am

    My best clothing wins are usually workout clothes… 😉

  27. Yvonne on October 11, 2014 at 8:53 am

    Gray dress looks great! I don’t think the waist hits wrong at all. But maybe the color is off? Just get it dyed and viola! But i like it! We are our own worst critics!

  28. Racheal @ Running with Racheal on October 11, 2014 at 8:53 am

    So cute! I actually really like the dress, but all by itself it doesn’t seem like your typical style. I am sure you can find a way to “Gina-fy” it. 🙂

    Have a good weekend!

  29. Alex on October 11, 2014 at 9:21 am

    I really enjoyed reading this post. I have used Stitch Fix in the past too. I don’t particularly enjoy shopping, and I like the SF service because they pick everything out for you based on your preferences and you get to pick what you want to keep! This is so great for someone who is definitely style-challenged like myself. Cute pieces above. I actually think that dress looks very nice on you. Also, what type of camera do you use to take your pictures? Thanks!

  30. cait @pieceofcait on October 11, 2014 at 11:02 am

    love that grey dress.. fits you like a glove and looks amazing! 🙂

    • Fitnessista on October 12, 2014 at 10:57 pm

      thank you, cait!

  31. Monica on October 11, 2014 at 11:02 am

    I think the dress looks AAAmazing on you!

    • Fitnessista on October 12, 2014 at 10:57 pm

      thanks, monica <3

  32. april on October 11, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    this stitchfix delivery was definitely a winner! everything looks great on you 🙂

    i’m kinda in love with your burgundy skinnies. i’ve been looking for a fun pair of colored denim for the fall!

  33. Lindsey @ SimplyLindsey on October 11, 2014 at 2:15 pm

    LOVE the first outfit! It’s so perfect for the fall transitional weather!

    • Fitnessista on October 12, 2014 at 10:56 pm

      thank you!

  34. Shayne on October 11, 2014 at 2:44 pm

    My October fix was amazing too. I only kept the Mavi Alexa Skinny Jeans because of budget, but they sent a gorgeous houndstooth blouse, the Kut from the Kloth denim jacket, and a buffalo plaid infinity scarf. There was also a cute top, that was cut kind of funny, but all of it was so pretty. I would have kept four out of five pieces if I had more money to spend this month.

  35. Michelle @ Vitamin Sunshine on October 12, 2014 at 8:34 am

    I think the dress is okay. If it was a freebie, of course keep it. What I do when I have things that I get on a really good deal but am not totally in love with– take it to a tailor! The dress would suit your style and body better if it had a more open neck line. Draw where you want it to hit you, and for $20, a good tailor will make it fit you perfectly. A lower v neck? And of course, layer over it all winter- would be an adorable length with boots!

    • Fitnessista on October 12, 2014 at 10:53 pm

      that’s a brilliant idea! off to google tailors in the area 🙂

      • Michele on October 14, 2014 at 5:23 pm

        That was my thought too. I think the dress looks great on you but I’m not crazy about the neckline.

  36. Claire on October 12, 2014 at 10:41 am

    Ummm I LOVE that dress on you! I think it’s my favourite thing out of all the items! I think it’s flattering but if you don’t then definitely work the sweater over top (which is a great idea! Might steal it. haha)

    • Fitnessista on October 12, 2014 at 10:52 pm

      do it! i love repurposing dresses as skirts 🙂 xoxo

  37. clare @ fitting it all in on October 12, 2014 at 11:51 am

    i think the gray dress is AWESOME on you!!

  38. Christa @ Living Unablanced on October 12, 2014 at 6:55 pm

    Agree with everyone — the grey dress is my fav out of everything! But I do love all things grey 🙂

    • Fitnessista on October 12, 2014 at 10:52 pm

      thank you!! i usually love grey too 🙂

  39. Alex @ True Femme on October 12, 2014 at 5:22 pm

    I love that gray twisted dress on you! It looks amazing! I’m really hoping to find the perfect pair of booties for fall. I can’t seem to find the style I’m looking for so I’m hoping by the end of the month or by Thanksgiving (ha!) I’ll find some 🙂 I am loving a few different long sweaters I got at Express. Paired with some skinny jeans, a tank top underneath, and a simple necklace they’ve been cute (I think) and cozy!

    • Fitnessista on October 12, 2014 at 10:51 pm

      that’s the perfect fall outfit!! have you looked at just fab? they have a lot of cute booties!

      • Alex @ True Femme on October 13, 2014 at 6:11 am

        Ooh no I haven’t but I will! Thank you for the suggestion!

  40. jodie on October 12, 2014 at 5:55 pm

    Gina, the dress looks absolutely wonderful on you.

    • Fitnessista on October 12, 2014 at 10:51 pm

      thank you, jodie!

  41. RunEatRepeat on October 12, 2014 at 7:56 pm

    Looking good!

    • Fitnessista on October 12, 2014 at 10:51 pm

      <3

  42. Sne on October 12, 2014 at 8:13 pm

    I love your maroon pants! And the dress does look really good on you, it would be nice to see it in a brighter colour.

    • Fitnessista on October 12, 2014 at 10:51 pm

      thank you!! i think i would like it in a different color too

  43. Carrie (This Fit Chick) on October 13, 2014 at 11:51 am

    I have heard SO much about Stitch fix and I love what I see! love that dress~!

  44. Nicole on October 13, 2014 at 2:31 pm

    I love the dress! I see what you mean in that the waist is a bit high but I think it looks really good!

  45. Stephanie @ Whole Health Dork on October 14, 2014 at 11:06 am

    Though I’ve put Stitch Fix on hold for now as I’ve only purchased one item from each fix, I’ve worn each of those items a ton. My most recent purchase was a burgundy 41Hawthorn blouse that I’ve seen in a bunch of variations (my coworker has a black one, I think there’s a print one). It’s become my go-to shirt for weekend dates and even work. Timeless style and color plus versatility are a definite win!

  46. Melissa on October 14, 2014 at 12:39 pm

    I know how you feel about the waist thing but I really like the dress on you. Wait and see if it grows to a love.

  47. Carrie on October 15, 2014 at 5:42 am

    The dress is actually my favorite of all the pieces! Looks great on you!

  48. Julie on October 21, 2014 at 5:17 pm

    How do you like your Juli flats? I’m obsessed with tieks but having a hard time buying more with the $175 price tag

    • Fitnessista on October 21, 2014 at 5:38 pm

      i love them. they’re so comfy, and to me, they look exactly like the tieks minus the soles of course
