I was happy to see Betsy was my stylist again. She's so good! She wrote another lovely note (check out her note and picks for me from last month here) and she addressed the requests I made for this fix. She thinks I'm ready for more advanced styling, as in layering, and I couldn't agree more. Rewind about 6 months ago and I was not ready. Not at all. Stitch Fix has really pushed me out of my functionista comfort zone (also known as my comfy clothes). I look forward to getting my fix every month, but shopping on my own has also become easier. I am riding the buy-and-return merry go round much less than I used to! I've discovered new brands through Stitch Fix (Liverpool jeans are my new fav) and I've added several items to my wardrobe that are Stitch Fix inspired.
If you've never heard of Stitch Fix, it's a personal styling service that's fun, simple, and set to your budget. A box of clothes and accessories (maybe even shoes!) chosen just for you shows up on your doorstep every month or however often you desire. Click here for more details about how it works.
Read on to see why I struggled so much with this fix. Do you think I made the right decisions?
Anyway, I wanted to try some bootcut jeans and Betsy was kind enough to oblige my request. I have this killer pair of Teva De La Vina brown leather boots I bought last May for a trip to Ireland (you can read about my Ireland fix here). They are comfortable enough to walk around in all day and water proof and I plan to wear them A LOT this winter (you know, because El Nino is coming). The downside of these boots is that they don't work well with skinny jeans because the shaft is too high, way above the ankle. My thought was that maybe bootcut jeans would be the perfect match for the boots.
My next fix will be my birthday fix in January! I'm going to ask for pieces that can keep me warm and stylish. The cold weather is making me slip back into my functionista ways, dressing strictly for the weather and completely abandoning fashion. January seems very far away, but luckily I have plenty of holiday shopping to distract me.
