The latest ‘fix

If I’m wearing an outfit some would consider “fashionable,” there’s about a 90% chance that StitchFix picked it out to me. The other 10% comes from the fact that I really, really like Nordstrom Rack. It’s hard to believe that I started doing StitchFix boxes almost a year ago, and they’ve just continued to get better and better. I feel like Margaret, my stylist, is kind of like my BFF.

So, needless to say, some major swooning happened with the last box they sent me. 

Tops  1 of 1

(Autumn, I’m ready for you!!)

Here are the highlights:

A lightweight trench coat— perfect for mild Arizona fall weather

Trench  1 of 1

(Similar here and here

A trench is something I’ve always wanted, but could never justify since it doesn’t get that cold here. Winter clothing never seems to be worth the investment. This trench is perfect because it’s light; I can tell I’ll wear it a lot this fall and spring.

Textured tank

Tank  1 of 1

(Brand is Pieces; similar here and here)

This is a beautiful versatile piece that I’ll be able to layer with a sweater in the fall, or keep rocking with shorts and sandals for now πŸ™‚

Belted dress

Flamenco fest

Amazing sidekick making the best face ever: priceless.

Date night dress!


Date night dress  1 of 1

I told the Pilot we need to go on somewhere fancy so I can wear it πŸ™‚

(Brand is Pink Martini)

Black skinnies with leather trim. These were way too small for me (they’re an XS and I couldn’t get them over my calves) but I kept them because if you get the entire box, you save 25%. So, they were free πŸ™‚ If anyone is an XXS that wants them, first dibs, send me an email and pay for shipping and they’re yours!

Basic top

Printed top  1 of 1

You can never have enough of these, and I adore the fun print!

Floral dress:


Dress  1 of 1

This is another one that can easily be dressed up or down, and layered for a mild fall. It’s light and super comfy.

What’s your most-loved piece of clothing right now or fall staple? I can’t wait to wear my favorite black skinnies again. 



**In full transparency, I did not pay for any of these items since I have a credit from referring people to the company over the past year. I did a StitchFix credit giveaway a while ago, and am already brainstorming the next one to say “thank you!” Stay tuned <3

    I would love the black skinnies! I am usually a size 0 (25 w), so if they’re smaller than that, I will pass!

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 5:46 pm

      they should probably fit you. i’m usually a size 2 and they’re just not going to go on my body haha. email me: fitnessista at gmail and they’re yours!

  2. Stephanie on September 24, 2013 at 5:46 pm

    I’m interested in the black skinnies just not sure where to email you :/

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 5:49 pm

      hey! kristen contacted me first but if that doesn’t work out, i’ll email you. πŸ™‚

  3. Paola on September 24, 2013 at 5:49 pm

    Love all of them, but the b/w dress and the last floral one look fabulous on you! Great picks from the stylist!

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 5:49 pm

      thank you! πŸ™‚

  4. Amber on September 24, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    So, here’s a little “insider tip” on their whole “we can’t exchange for alternate sizes” disclaimer…

    In a recent Fix I got, there were a pair of embroidered Kensie skinnies that I fell IN LOVE with (like, found-the-perfect-wedding-dress kind of love). But they were a smiiidge too small (I got junk in da trunk), and I really needed them to fit just right…or I was gunna have to cry myself to sleep knowing I’d have to place them solemnly back in the return envelope.

    I emailed customer service and asked (ok, begged) if they happened to have a 28 in stock, because I loved them that much to ask (beg). Just to make sure I didn’t sound tooooo crazy, I let them know that I completely understood if they didn’t (per their disclaimer).

    As luck would have it, they had a pair in the correct size for me, and he gladly made the exchange!

    Moral of the story… If you get something that doesn’t fit quite right–and you really like it–shoot ’em and email and just check if they still have any in stock! πŸ˜‰ They might not, but it doesn’t hurt to ask!

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 6:13 pm

      ohhhh good tip!! thank you!

  5. Brittany on September 24, 2013 at 6:06 pm

    LOOOOVVVEEE your black and white heart print shirt. Is that also from Stitch Fix?

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 6:12 pm


  6. Sara @ LovingOnTheRun on September 24, 2013 at 6:17 pm

    Wow those are some great items!! I wish I could afford to join that site, but for now I will just live vicariously through you!! You look beautiful! I would love a post some time on how you curl your hair – it always looks PERFECT!

  7. Whitney @ Pancakes and Tulips on September 24, 2013 at 6:34 pm

    Stitch Fix is awesome. The only time I wear something “cool and trendy” is when I’m rocking a Stitch Fix item. I love the pattern blouse they sent you. I love basics I can wear all year long.

  8. RachelG on September 24, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    love love love these outfits! Your look so gorg in the date night dress! πŸ™‚

  9. Jillian on September 24, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    If it doesn’t work out with the other 2 posters about the skinny jeans, I would love them!!

  10. Ashley on September 24, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    I was one of the people to win the Stitch Fix video giveaway. Needless to say, I was very excited to use my credit! I waited and waited, and never got taken off the waiting list. I was afraid it was because a am a curvy size 12/L. I was all grumpy at Stich Fix and emailed them last week to find out what’s up. I got a reply in less than an hour apologizing and they got my first fix set up for next week. I haven’t even gotten clothes from them yet, but I am a fan of the company for taking care of it so quickly! Can’t wait for my first fix- thanks for sharing the wealth!

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 11:47 pm

      awww that’s awesome! they have incredible customer service.

  11. Maryz on September 24, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    Love Stitch fix! The customer service is awesome and I am like you…most of my clothes are currently coming from ‘the box’ as my husband calls it! Love the floral dress!

  12. jodie on September 24, 2013 at 6:59 pm

    Love Stitch Fix, this last box they sent me I kept everything. Did Solibeat this morning,absolutely loved it. Lots of fun.

  13. Paige@FitNotFad on September 24, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    I LOVE Stitch Fix! I especially adore that heart print top….so cute! My most-loved piece has to be 2 of my scarves….one fringed and one floral print. I pair them with literally every outfit once fall/winter hits here in Tucson….I can’t wait to for it to cool down so I can start wearing them again, along with my riding boots!

  14. Olivia at ohmy Olivia on September 24, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    I really love the trench – it’s been on my wishlist for a while now! xo

  15. Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries on September 24, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    You are the cutest! Love all the pieces! I think I need StitchFix in my life, however, I am a little hesitant due to the cost of it. How does the cost work and how much would you say on average someone pays for it all per month (fees, cost of clothes, etc.)?

    • Emily on September 24, 2013 at 7:42 pm

      I’ve done StitchFix twice, you can choose a price range you prefer. I pick sort of the low- to medium-end price range and my stitch ends up coming out to around $250-$300/box or so, and that’s with the 20% keep-it-all discount and having the $25 styling credit returned (or was it 25% and $20?). So it comes out to about what you’d pay at a department store if you’re not trying to score some sales.

      Also, you can put in a request for what kind of pieces you want. Last time, I asked for only tops and no dresses/jewelry, and it came out a little cheaper since tops are less expensive.

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 11:42 pm

      in the boxes i get, the average cost per piece is about $55

  16. Merrill on September 24, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    Obsessed with the striped sweater/top on the right of the tops pic, who makes it?

    My current most loved piece of clothing is an oversized navy and off white striped sweater from gap, perfect for days when I don’t want to have to think about what I’m wearing.

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 11:42 pm

      the brand is “james”

  17. CourtStar @ StarSystemz on September 24, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    You are so cute! I love seeing your different things from the box, I really LOVE the idea of it! Thanks for sharing Love + shine CourtStar

  18. Christine @ BookishlyB on September 24, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    Just out of curiosity, if you were to have paid for the box how much do you think it would have cost? There’s a lot in there!

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 11:41 pm

      i think the whole box was $400 and it had 10 pieces in there

      • Lori on September 25, 2013 at 4:13 pm

        You have had much better luck than me! I keep giving it another chance, and they are always off with size, style, or pricing.

        Do you get 10 items since you’re a blogger who writes about them? The usual is 5, and I haven’t seen an option to get more.

        • Fitnessista on September 25, 2013 at 5:56 pm

          i requested more pieces for our italy trip, but ended up getting the box after we returned πŸ™‚

  19. april on September 24, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    i love the pieces you received, especially the black and white heart print top. so adorable! (although my fave part of this post is liv’s face… TOO cute :))

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 11:41 pm

      haha best ever πŸ™‚

  20. Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs on September 24, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    Looks like a great haul! Love the date night dress — it looks great on you!

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 11:41 pm

      thank you! πŸ™‚

  21. Lyn on September 24, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    Thank you thank you!!! Love it!! Can’t wait for my box!

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 11:41 pm

      whoo hoo! enjoy!

  22. Jackie on September 24, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    Is stitch fix worth the investment?

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 11:40 pm

      i definitely think so!

  23. Irene on September 24, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    Well, you are earning those referal credits, because after seeing Stichfix pop up on a few blogs now, this was the post that convinced me to try it! I love almost every item! Can’t wait for my box to arrive! I can never get skinny jeans over my calves either, btw!

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 11:43 pm

      yay, i hope you love it! πŸ™‚

  24. Ellen on September 24, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    I’d love it if you shared the price of the box or individual items. It’d help me decide if this is something I should sign up for. πŸ™‚ I adore that black and white dress on you, BTW. They did good with that one!

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 11:40 pm

      thank you! πŸ™‚
      if you let me know what pieces you’re interested in, i can check the price for that item! the average price per piece was about $55

  25. Theodora on September 24, 2013 at 9:42 pm


    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 11:37 pm

      thank you!!

    • Gabi on September 25, 2013 at 10:48 pm

      SERIOUSLY! That dress πŸ™‚ By any chance, do you know the brand on that one?

  26. Julie on September 24, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    I love that belted turquoise dress!

    • Fitnessista on September 24, 2013 at 11:37 pm

      thanks- it’s so comfy!

  27. Jennifer on September 25, 2013 at 12:38 am

    All so cute! I’m going to try it out! Have you ever had a box where you didn’t buy anything? Do you look your $20 deposit then?

    • Fitnessista on September 25, 2013 at 12:45 am

      i’ve always kept at least one thing. if you don’t make a purchase, you lose the $20 for the box

      • Jennifer on September 25, 2013 at 12:48 am

        Thank you! Very good to know!

  28. Becky @ on September 25, 2013 at 12:47 am

    That pink martini dress is super cute. I just bought an awesome Pink Martini blazer and want to check out more!

  29. Ksenija @ Health Ninja on September 25, 2013 at 4:08 am

    Some cute outfits! I do especially love the trench coat and your date night dress.

  30. Danielle on September 25, 2013 at 7:58 am

    Love the picks! I’ve done stitch before and absolutely loved their picks for me. Way more stylish than I would ever be πŸ˜‰

  31. Ali on September 25, 2013 at 10:12 am

    You look stunning in everything! Love the two dresses <3

    Ill take the skinnies, send them to me in Thailand? πŸ˜‰

  32. Lesley on September 25, 2013 at 10:25 am

    I haven’t had the best experience with StitchFix, sadly. It’s because I’m a bit larger, a size 16. They send me crazy cute stuff, but it hardly ever fits right (cropped tops for girls with a belly? erm, no). I almost always keep the jewelry they send me which is gorgeous, and have kept a few tops and a wrap dress that I really do love, but if you’re a bit on the larger side, they don’t quite have us figured out yet. They emailed me last month saying they would have to skip my fix for the month because they just didn’t have anything for me. Sad panda. This month’s is in the mail to me now, so we’ll see, but I this may be the last one I get from them. Hopefully they get us curvier girls figured out! I could really use a bit of style!

  33. Rachel on September 25, 2013 at 10:49 am

    Hi Gina- I always love the items you get from Stitchfix; more than the items they send me. I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind sharing what you wrote on their form as your style preferences. I keep changing my options to get things I’ll like more but I have yet to like anything as much as I like your pieces. Thanks!

    • Laura B on September 26, 2013 at 1:07 am

      I feel the same way! About to cancel mine.

  34. Jamie on September 25, 2013 at 10:58 am

    Hi Gina!! I know they’re not from Stitchfix, but where did you get those adorable sandals you’re wearing in the belted dress picture with Liv?! Thank you!! πŸ™‚

  35. Jess on September 25, 2013 at 11:16 am

    Look at you rocking the new fall fashions with your trendy hair cut and berry lipstick! Its like a new you! Love every single item, Giuliana Rancic would be proud πŸ™‚

  36. Lauren @ Focused To Be Fit on September 25, 2013 at 11:25 am

    BOTH of those dresses are to die for. Love, love, love!!

  37. Anna @ Fitness Γ  la Anna on September 25, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    I’ve also been trying to justify getting a fall trench coat since it is such a short season here in Ottawa, Canada…but I love the look of the beige one on you!!

  38. queenoffitness on September 25, 2013 at 5:19 pm

    most loved piece of clothing right now?….a blue trina turk dress with a geometric print that i waited SO patiently for to go on sale and got on the cheap from hautelook. i actually wore it to work today. trina turk is my go-to clothier because many of her pieces are made in the USA. some of them aren’t so you just have to check labels. my husband and i have been focusing on buying more US made products in the last year and a half. i don’t think i really have a fall-staple so to speak. i love jackets and have 3 different trenches that i bought 3-4 even 9 years back that i wear every season.
    can i just say that your hair looks gorg’ in every photo!

  39. Mary Jane on September 25, 2013 at 5:19 pm

    I just signed up for StitchFix! I’ve been having trouble finding time and energy to shop with my 15 month old + working full time! I’m a little scared it’ll be too expensive but I’m willing to give it a shot. Thanks for the inspiration. Oh, and my favorite piece of clothing right now is my sweats — it finally cooled off enough to bust them out after work. πŸ™‚

  40. Alissa on September 25, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    I love the trench & the flower dress! I have been hearing about stitchfix, but am still iffy only because of how much it is. Hoping after Christmas time to be able to get one! Love the post & everything looks great on you!

  41. Laura B on September 26, 2013 at 1:04 am

    What a great fix! I’ve gotten about 3 boxes from then and they’ve all been just ‘eh.’

  42. Danica @ It's Progression on September 27, 2013 at 8:59 am

    That floral dress is my favorite – so pretty!

  43. Elyse @ Lizzie Fit on September 27, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    Love that rainbow crochet top! It’s not half as cool in plain colors πŸ˜‰

    PS: hope I look like that when I’m a mom! Jeez!
