The latest Stitch Fix

Hi! How’s the day going?? Hope you’re having a great one so far. I taught BODYPUMP this morning, and am getting things together for spin and the week’s travel adventures. I’m so so excited to see the fam… and stuff my face with the glory that is Thanksgiving.

This weekend, Christmas came a little early when a Stitch Fix (<— referral link!) box arrived. My stylist joked that even though the San Diego hasn’t received the “winter” memo, she was going to send me some fall pieces in case it had started to cool down. I realized something about living here: even if it isn’t necessarily cold, people still dress like it’s fall. Last week, Liv and I were walking around in sundresses (it was mid 70s) and I realized that everyone around us was bundled up in sweaters and boots. It has started to get a little chillier in the mornings and at night, so I’ve slowly started to break out the fall gear. I was excited to see some new pieces in this fix!

I wasn’t planning on writing about it, but I realized that I usually post about the boxes where I keep everything. This is the exception and not the rule, because I almost always send a few pieces back. For this box, I ended up keeping 3 out of the 5 items. 

Here’s what they sent:

1) Splendid Delanie Knit Vest (<— on super sale right now at Neiman Marcus)

Splendid vest  1 of 1

(with black LOFT top, Kensie skinnies and boots from Italy)

Verdict: keeper!

This was my favorite piece that they sent! I’d been eyeing the big puffy vests, but figured that one wouldn’t be realistic with the weather here. This one is lighter and the fabric is super soft and dreamy. I also love the neutral color!

2) THML Melina Stripes & Embroidery Sweater

Thml sweater  1 of 1

(with Kensie skinnies and Oliberte moccasins)

Verdict: keeper!

At first I thought it might be too much happening at once, but I love it with plain jeans and my moccasins. I know I’ll be wearing it a lot, and love that it’s something different than the usual solid cable knit sweaters.

Speaking of cable knit sweaters…

3) Lemon Tart Pax Cable Knit Raglan Sweater (similar here)

Cobalt sweater  1 of 1

(with black skinnies and booties)

Verdict: send it back

The fabric was really lovely and it fit well, but I feel like I have a lot of cobalt and blue stuff in my closet right now (like this blue tank they sent recently). Decided to skip this one.

4) Gorjana Cayden Horn Charm Pendant Necklace

Horn necklace

Verdict: keeper

It seems like a delicate necklace, but then I saw that horn. I was like, “A horn? What?” haha. It seems a little edgy for my style, but that’s why I love Stitch Fix: they gently nudge me out of my comfort zone sometimes. I like that it can be layered with other necklaces, and decided to give it a whirl. Of course my mom brain immediately dubbed it a safety hazard (“I have to be careful that Liv doesn’t poke herself on my horn necklace”) so I imagine that I’ll wear it more for date nights or girls’ night anyway.

5) DL1961 Saira Ankle Length Skinny Jean

Jeans  1 of 1

Verdict: send it back

I liked the wash of the jeans, but they were too big. Instead of skinny jeans, they would have been saggy jeans. 

So there’s the recent fix!

Hope you have a lovely night! See ya in the morning with a new workout video and your Thanksgiving workout challenge. 😉

    I’m curious about the sizing of the vest? any feedback on that? Thanks! 🙂

    • Fitnessista on November 24, 2014 at 2:47 pm

      it’s pretty true to size. i usually wear a small top, and the small is perfect

      • Lisa on November 24, 2014 at 3:07 pm

        Thanks!! it’s a cute piece~

  5. Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment on November 24, 2014 at 3:51 pm

    Great vest! They are perfect for more mild weather. Enjoy!

  6. Carrie (This Fit Chick) on November 24, 2014 at 4:19 pm

    oh that necklace is gorgeous!!!

  7. Maggie on November 24, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    Just received my first fix, and I also received that blue sweater. I loved it, but returned because it is hand-wash only. I hate hand-washing sweaters because once you get there all wet and sudsy, they weigh like 50 lbs, I end up getting water all over the bathroom, and then I get can never get the soap out of them. Le sigh.

    So you’re saying I shouldn’t bring my sundresses to San Diego for Thanksgiving? Because I was super excited to wear them with my flip-flops … 🙂

    • Fitnessista on November 24, 2014 at 8:43 pm

      doooooo it

  9. Alex @ get big, go to work on November 25, 2014 at 3:28 am

    I love the StitchFix service. I admittedly don’t use it enough, but when I do, it does fee like Christmas 😀 That necklace is my favorite piece. I’ve been looking for a soft, delicate gold chain necklace. I definitely want to try and find something like yours. Beautiful.

  10. Lindsey @ Simply Lindsey on November 25, 2014 at 3:40 am

    I love that vest!!! I’ve been on the hunt for a cute puffy vest and I’m definitely going to check that one out. 😀

    • Fitnessista on November 25, 2014 at 7:42 am

      we can be twinsies 🙂

  11. Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries on November 25, 2014 at 7:20 am

    Everything looks great on you! The vest is definitely “in” this season, but I like that this one in particular has a unique shape/fit/style to it. Very cute! I totally get your reasoning for returning the cobalt sweater, but I just have to say that color looks beautiful on you!

    • Fitnessista on November 25, 2014 at 7:41 am

      thank you, ashley! i liked the shape of the vest too

  12. Christina @ The Beautiful Balance on November 25, 2014 at 8:06 am

    Splendid is one of my favorite go-tos for comfort because everything is so insanely soft and wearable.

  13. Erin @ Her Heartland Soul on November 25, 2014 at 8:20 am

    Cute fix! I love that vest on you!

  14. Stephanie @ Whole Health Dork on November 25, 2014 at 10:42 am

    Your comment about it being 70 and people dressing like it’s fall cracks me up. My parents went to the Rose Parade a few years ago and they remarked about the same thing–they were excited to be in tee shirts (compared to the chilly 20 degrees of Massachusetts) while other people had on scarves and boots. I guess it’s all about perspective.
    I Thanks for posting! I’m always curious to see what other people get in their boxes and what they end up keeping and sending back. I’m loving the necklace. I would keep that to push me outside my comfort zone as well!

  15. Kay on November 25, 2014 at 11:38 am

    Love the vest and the necklace. But I’m such a sucker for plain sweaters that I’m definitely not ready for your cute patterned one. 🙂

    I feel you on the weather. At nights when it’s 50 degrees here, I tell everyone it’s freezing. My family in Chicago has no sympathy for me.
