Stitch Fix Wins

Hi friends! How’s the morning going?? We are off to play with some friends, hitting the gym, and enjoying this beautiful fall day. I have a new post up on the PBB site if you’d like to check it out!

For today, I thought I’d share a little Stitch Fix review/update with ya, since I’ve received quite a few great things lately. It’s funny because there haven’t been many instances lately where I’ve liked everything and kept the entire box. (You get a discount if you keep everything, so if I’m on the fence about something, I’ll just keep them.) Instead, there are one or two things that I am absolutely crazy about, and I’ll send the rest back. So all of the items below aren’t from one box, but instead are a mix from different boxes that have turned into staples.

Fall 2016 stitch fix review

(Skies Are Blue Chambray top, Skies Are Blue mixed material sweater, Rails plaid dress, Pistola destroyed jeans, TOMs booties, and RD Style pocket tee dress)

Tops desert wedge booties

Let’s start off with the shoes! When I opened the TOMs booties, I wasn’t quite sure how I’d feel about them. I don’t tend to wear wedges or heeled shoes daily because #clumsyAF, but was surprised by how comfortable they were. They’re easy to walk in and feel amazing; I can tell I’ll be wearing them a lot this fall and winter. Also, I appreciate a little extra height. 🙂 I’m a huge fan of TOMs and their mission, so I was happy to update my shoe collection with these!

Skies are blue mixed materials top

Wearing the Skies Are Blue mixed material sweater (similar in black), moto leggings (similar here for $39! I also have burgundy), and TOMs wedge booties

I knew when I took this top out of the box that it was a keeper. I love the neutral colors, understated plaid, and mixed material. I can play around with different colored bottoms (like my fave moto leggings; thanks for my friend Julie for the obsession), or plain destroyed denim. 

Rails plaid dress

Wearing the Rails plaid dress + TOMs wedge booties

I was a little unsure about this dress. I loved the color and print, and it’s similar to a cupcakes and cashmere version I’d been wanting, but it felt a little too “holidays” for me? I don’t know. But, when I put it on, I knew it was a keeper. The fabric is super soft and I love that I can wear it with low-tops, sandals, or booties. 

Gret pocket tee dress

Wearing the RD Style pocket tee dress (striped at Old Navy for $10, ssimilar grey version here for $33) with my favorite Prada low-tops (the newer version is SO cute)

Looking at this photo, I realized this t-shirt dress is a little boxy on me and wrinkles easily, but yolo because I love it. (Do people still stay yolo? Let’s just go with it.) I’ve worn this dress so many times, and love it for running errands, travel, and it’s pretty much like wearing a giant soft t-shirt. 

Beautycounter faves

All the makeup I’m wearing in this post is from Beautycounter <— the best. I’m wearing the dew skin moisturizer (my very fave), concealer pen, eyeshadow, ruby lip gloss, blush/bronzer combo and mascara. They also just released their holiday sets and they are toooooo.diieeeeeee.forrrrrrrr.

Long layers with ash brown and highlights

In the hair world, I finally got a much-needed chop and color. As tempted as I was to revert back to mom cut land, I resisted. Whenever I cut my hair, I love it, and then instantly want to grow it back. I considered just cutting bangs since my baby bangs are driving me insane. Instead, I’m just going to try and let them grow out and do their thing.

She just trimmed the dead ends, and used a deep ash brown color all over. She added some highlights to the bottom to take the edge off, and it feels healthy and shiny. For my fellow San Diego friends, go see Shaylin at Jol Salon. (She doesn’t know I have a blog or anything like that. She is amazing!) 

So tell me friends: what are you loving this fall? Any fun new finds or hair changes??

    You look Adorable in everything!! I knew you trimmed your hair before I even finished reading, lol, is that weird? MAYBE just observant, lol. How often do you go for trims- like 10 weeks? I’ve been trying to go more regularly.I love All the Clothes and Adore the grey boots!

    • Fitnessista on October 18, 2016 at 8:52 pm

      thank you, friend!
      i go for trims like every 2-3 months. i say i’ll go more often but then i don’t

    I love the tshirt dress and the plaid one. I’ll take them all! I could use a wardrobe makeover right about now!

    • Fitnessista on October 18, 2016 at 8:51 pm

      with everything you’ve been through this past year, i say treat yo self <3

  3. Julie on October 18, 2016 at 8:23 am

    I don’t think the t-shirt dress looks boxy at all; it’s super cute on you! Everything is super cute. I am dying to find some peep-toe booties, & bonus if they have fringe!

    • Fitnessista on October 18, 2016 at 8:51 pm

      thank you, friend! i love the peep toe booties too <3

    Maybe I missed it but did you show the Pilot’s stitch fix? I want to see what they sent him and what he ended up liking. I’m considering getting it for the hubby for Christmas!

    • Fitnessista on October 18, 2016 at 8:50 pm

      i did! it was actually a bust. they were “classic” pieces but just kind of dull. i’m hoping #2 is better!

  5. Katie on October 18, 2016 at 2:47 pm

    Haha I am wearing those Toms booties right now! They are so comfortable!!

    • Fitnessista on October 18, 2016 at 8:50 pm

      so so comfy and cute!

  6. Bethany on October 18, 2016 at 4:56 pm

    Stitch Fix has been a total bust for me lately! My last box had some jeans I really like but when I Googled I found them $30 cheaper at Nordstorm. Boo! I think I might have to stop the stitch. =(

    Love the wedges!

    If your hair is like mine bangs + GA = badnewsbears! lol

    • Fitnessista on October 18, 2016 at 8:50 pm

      i’m pretty sure they price match now, but i could be wrong. i got a dress that was $100 cheaper at nordstrom! it was kind of insanity
      thank you for the GA reminder haha. the humidity is not my friend

  7. Kristin on October 18, 2016 at 5:41 pm

    Did you ever post the tutorial video of you drying your hair? I hope I didn’t miss it!
    I would love those wedges if they were just a tad shorter. I need a bootie like that to wear to a college tailgate in a couple weeks!

    • Fitnessista on October 18, 2016 at 8:49 pm

      i didn’t! i’m hoping i can film it on thursday
      yeah they’re a little high but don’t seem too high because they’re really comfy

  8. jodie on October 18, 2016 at 6:33 pm

    I haven’t gotten a “fix” in a while. Cute clothes. I am curious what are your thoughts on the the beauty counter face oil?,

    • Fitnessista on October 18, 2016 at 8:49 pm

      it’s one of my favorite things! i use the hydrating oil every day

  9. Tiffany on October 18, 2016 at 6:38 pm

    I have the TOMS booties in taupe…now I think I need those gray ones!! They are so cute and will match everything!

    • Fitnessista on October 18, 2016 at 8:48 pm

      they are SO comfy too!

  10. Crystal on October 18, 2016 at 6:44 pm

    Blah, I’m the worst when it comes to hair. I don’t color it and I usually just keep it longish, with trims. I got bangs earlier this year, which was a horrible idea since I have naturally curly hair.

    Love those booties 🙂

    • Fitnessista on October 18, 2016 at 8:48 pm

      hahah. i always love bangs when i first cut them but later i’m like oh no
      thank you!

  11. Mina on October 21, 2016 at 5:20 am

    Can I ask about the bracelet with the evil eye charm in the make up photo? I’m a very superstitious greek 🙂 I’d love to have an eye to wear when I don’t want to wear my necklace.

    • Fitnessista on October 24, 2016 at 1:56 pm

      yes! it’s from keep collective. you can customize them with charms 🙂
