**Be sure to check out the end of the post to see how you can enter the $500 Stitch Fix giveaway!

 

I know you guys have been anxiously awaiting the second half of my Stitch Fix Vacay post, right?

Pins and needles, no?

Well, if you missed my first post about my trip to San Francisco with my Sister to visit Stitch Fix, you can view it HERE.  We were on the trip with Cheryl, from Tidy Mom, and her beautiful daughter, Allison.  We had so much fun together!!

StitchFix-58

The first day of the trip, we visited the Stitch Fix headquarters.

Day two, we visited the “Hizzy.”  That is what the Stitch Fix employees affectionately call the warehouse.

We were absolutely giddy to be in a warehouse full of clothes and accessories!

I was so impressed with the whole process of how they pack your personal fix.

1.  There are rows and rows of clothing and accessories shipped to the Hizzy.

2.  Each item of clothing is carefully inspected.

3.   They go through the rows of clothes to find the items for your fix.

4.  After they find the five items for you fix, they are checked AGAIN to make sure they are the correct pieces and that they are in perfect condition.

5.  The pieces in your fix are carefully wrapped to create the special “experience” of opening your fix when it arrives to your home.

6.  Your fix is packaged, taped, and mailed to your home!

I had so much fun packing my fix for Jodi.  I hope she liked it. Smile

Here’s a fun video of us packing our boxes, and you can catch glimpses of their special employees at the Hizzy.

I was so taken back by how happy they all were to be working there.  Their enthusiasm was contagious!

  1. I’ve been getting a monthly fix since August and love it. I teach and like to look nice for work but don’t like to shop. Stitch Fix is perfect for me.

  2. hope williams says:

    Stitch fix is awesome! I am not good at picking clothes out for myself

  3. Beth Walthall says:

    I haven’t heard of this before. What a cool idea, you have your own personal shopper.

  4. Jennie says:

    I have friends who have just started using the company and they love it. I would love to try it out!

  5. I received 1 stitch Fix box and loved the selections. However, being petite, the clothes overwhelmed me. I’m hoping they begin offering more petite sizes.

  6. Hannah J says:

    I haven’t used it before (not yet!) but I simply love that someone else does the shopping for you…I hate shopping but love looking put together. This is so perfect!

  7. Sandra says:

    I like that they send the clothes to you, and you get to try them on at home!

  8. I love how you get a professional’s input into what would look good on you. I have a hard time seeing past my comfort colors (can you say black?) and trying new things. Sometimes all it takes is someone else to find something that will look and feel great on you!

  9. I think Stitch Fix sounds intriguing! It would be fun to try things on at home.

  10. This looks like such a great idea. I would love to try it for myself! Maybe get me out of my “same old thing” rut!

  11. Brooke says:

    Although I haven’t tried stitch fix yet it sounds like a great option for a busy mom with a new baby like me!

  12. It sounds so fun to open the box of goodies chosen just for you! Everything I’ve seen on here looks like great quality, too.

  13. I’ve been doing Stitch Fix for a year and a half or so now and I just love it! I think the anticipation of what’s going to be in that box each month is just about the best part. And I’ve acquired so many great wardrobe pieces I’m not sure I ever would have picked and tried on for myself. So much fun!

  14. Jessica says:

    I love how personalized it is!

  15. Melissa says:

    I have not had the opportunity to use Stitch Fix before, but I would love to try clothing items chosen by someone else. Such a fun business concept!

  16. I’ve been going from pregnant to breastfeeding to pregnant to breastfeeding for the last few years and my weight has fluctuated a good 40 pounds within each year. Because of this, my closet is so weird – sort of like my kid’s where all of the clothes in a certain size go with a certain season. Right now it’s warming up and I only have a handful of summer items that fit me at this moment (and they probably won’t fit me anymore by the time August rolls around).

    I love to shop but I have a one year old and a two year old, and while they are great shoppers, maneuvering a double stroller through aisles and into dressing rooms is not fun. I love the idea of a subscription box that comes to me with my current size and season-appropriate clothes! What a great idea!
    Julia recently posted..Red Lentil Soup

  17. lesley says:

    i think it is a totally smart innovation and it would be cool to see what comes in each box – it would be like christmas!

  18. I am not very good at putting clothes together, so having someone else do it would be nice. Unfortunately, for many personal reasons I have been unable to try this out, but hope soon too. I have a sister who loves to shop and buy so I will let her know about Stitch Fix.

  19. maggie says:

    I love the concept of having cute clothes sent to me instead of dragging myself around the shops.

  20. Although I have not personally tried stitchfix yet, my daughter has and she loves getting pieces that she would not have necessarily picked out for herself.

  21. Colleen Boudreau says:

    I like the variety and quality of the items they send you.

  22. I like the idea of shopping at home!

  23. Michele Deates says:

    I love having my own personal consultant picking pieces out for me that I would of never picked for myself :) She’s keeping me Styling!

  24. Michele Laramay says:

    I like all the double checking to be sure it’s right and the extra special packaging.

  25. I have not used it before but always enjoy seeing what you and Cyndi end up picking -it’s like having your own personal shopper

  26. What a great concept for busy moms.

  27. Shaina says:

    I love the excitement and surprise of opening your box! I just wish the clothes were less expensive.

  28. LOVE Stitch Fix! I first learned about it from your blog and I am hooked. I look forward to my fixes whenever I can afford them. It is SO fun to see what they pick out for me!

  29. Jenny D says:

    How fun!!

  30. I’ve never used them but I like the idea of getting to try on the clothes at home (I hate dressing rooms).

  31. Jennfer Henning says:

    I don’t have much style am not a good shopper when it comes to clothes! Would love this.

  32. Jennifer says:

    What I love the most about StitchFix is that they pick a few items with each Fix, that I might not have chosen for myself in the store – and I put them on and they look great!! It’s having fresh eyes shop for you instead of always grabbing your go-to color or style.
    LOVE STITCHFIX!!!

  33. I think I’ve had 4 or 5 fixes so far and have loved every one! Having them tailor the items to my specific needs and style is the best!

  34. This ight be just the push I need!

  35. Easy

  36. Joanne B. says:

    I haven’t tried it yet, but have considered it when I’ve read bloggers rave about it. I would love that it comes right to my home without me having to go out to find them

  37. What I like best are the beautiful clothes and the special presentation. I love packages in the mail, as well.!

  38. The convenience.

  39. Perhaps if I win this giftcard I’ll just bite the bullet and give it a try. I Love the trendy but modest clothes they offer! Loved your post on your box you got from Stitch Fix! Everything looked adorable on you!!

  40. Christine says:

    I have lost my fashion sense. I am glad that someone else picks and packages the outfits for me!

  41. Teresa H, Fields says:

    Love Stitch fix! It’s just fun to be surprised.

  42. Sarah M says:

    I love that you get to try things that you probably wouldn’t pick out for yourself :)

  43. I like the styling suggestions best. I am always looking for tips on creating new outfits.

  44. Melissa says:

    Great chance to obtain more unique clothing items & have a personal shopper pick them for me!

  45. Jennifer says:

    I haven’t used their services, yet, but I can see it being very useful. I live in a small town and have to do most of my shopping online. It would be great to have the selections already chosen for me.

  46. Alayne says:

    What’s not to like about getting new clothes except the fact that someone selects them especially for you!

  47. It seems really convenient and fun. :)

  48. Sara Breeggemann says:

    I love that I get things I might not otherwise pick for myself. Wish I could afford to do it every month!

  49. Shelley Otto says:

    I tend to buy the same styles over and over-love the idea of mixing it up.

  50. Danielle says:

    I love that it introduces me to new clothing and makes it easy to match stuff up with what I already own.

  51. Jennifer S says:

    I love that you can get have the honest input of another person as to what would look good on you. Like shopping with a real friend.

  52. Cari Painter says:

    Love the casual, free-flowing look of your clothes and the items that mix and match. Also, shopping at home is special when you live in a small town without much to offer!

  53. Tamie Kyes says:

    I love that I get things I wouldn’t normally try on!

  54. I love that they hand pick items based on your style. Looks like it was such a fun trip!! Cute video – they all do look so happy!

  55. jennifer says:

    I like the fact that the clothes are unique to what else other people will be wearing. You won’t see your duplicate walking down the street!

  56. Sarah Griffith says:

    I am anxouisly awaiting my first delivery and can’t wait to see what they have picked for me!!

  57. Maggie Wallace says:

    I like that the items are hand picked based on the style you pick! It is very convenient.

  58. Rachael Woodstuff says:

    I don’t like shopping – turning hanger after hanger looking for the perfect piece (that I never seem to find). This seems like the answer to that dilemma. Can’t wait to try it!

  59. I loved my first stitch-fix! What I was most excited about was someone else choosing my outfit! Sometimes we get in a rut and choose clothing that all looks alike or the same color combo. My box was so much fun! And, they totally got my “style!” I can’t wait for the next one at the end of the month! My daughter told me about it and we both love seeing what someone else chose for us!

  60. Shirley says:

    Since they do not have my size I would wish this for my daughter-in-law. She just started a new job and needs clothes. Thanks for sharing.

    God bless

  61. Why would i like Stitch Fix? To have someone to take my body type along with what i like in clothing and Help Me….would Be Totally Awesome!!!! I’m 62 yrs young, grandma to eight, mother to 2 wonderful daughters and believe me, I’m refusing to look old and tired. Love your blog, along with Cyndi’s. God bless.

  62. I like that they claim to hand pick your items, even ask for your pinterest style board. I signed up a couple years ago, but due to finances have not actually done it yet… I LOVE the idea, and would adore the chance to actually participate. ;)

  63. Lisa G says:

    I like the surprise package delivered to my door each month. I may have to start my subscription back for the summer.

  64. stephanie says:

    I love that stitch fix gives busy women the chance to be stylish without having to go out shopping!

  65. Stitch Fix also helps elevate your style, and push you out of your comfort zone! I have stitch fix reviews on my website as well!

  66. Annette says:

    I have signed up, but just haven’t taken the plunge to start. I love the thought of somebody else picking my clothes! I think it would help me get out of my rut!

  67. Mary Christianson says:

    I live in a small town with very limited shopping. Stich Fix would be a great way to try new clothes on.

  68. I like Stitch-Fix because the packages are delivered straight to my door!
    Melissa recently posted..Mothers Day Gift Ideas

  69. I love the convenience of having it shipped right to my front door!

  70. Brooke says:

    I like that I get some say, but I get surprised and taken out of my comfort zone a little at a time!

  71. The best thing about Stitch Fix is having clothes shipped to your door without having to spend time going shopping.

    I signed up for Stitch Fix the very first time you wrote about it, but I haven’t been able to participate yet.

  72. As the only female in a house full of boys, shopping trips are few & far between. Stitch Fix would solve this!! ;)

  73. Kindra says:

    I love how the stylist at Stitch Fix pick out fashionable pieces that fit my lifestyle as a new mom. Plus, who has time for shopping for clothes for yourself with a baby!

  74. Barbara says:

    I’ve lost some weight (with still more to go!) but could use a little help with the wardrobe. And I think Stitch Fix is just the one to help.

    Thanks for this opportunity!!

  75. Heather says:

    This 48 yr old mom of 2 is in need of a wardrobe update, going back to work full time after 20 years!
    Would love to get some much needed help from Stiitch Fix!!

  76. OH I LOVE stitch fix. I’m about to get my second fix from them (my bday present to myself) I live in AZ so I really feel like my stylist picked out clothes I could actually wear here according to the weather! Love it!

  77. meg brantley says:

    Oh boy this couldn’t be a better fix for me. Ms. no clue how to put clothes together and make a decent outfit. I buy when I have to and then I have NO clue what I am doing. This is Amazing and Thank You for this opportunity!

  78. I like that Stitch Fix gives you clothes that I never would’ve given a second glance at a store. It’s taken me out of my comfort zone.

  79. Vickie says:

    The help with style and variety from my normal clothes buying would be wonderful!

  80. Christa says:

    I would love to try it. I am not very good at picking out clothes for myself. I tend to pick solids and very few patterns.

  81. I am so happy to see employees that are excited about their job. It must be a great place to work. You know work should be fun and treated as a blessing because a big chunk of our waking hours are spent at our jobs. Having someone with style knowledge to shop for me would truly be a blessing. Thanks for the chance of winning a gift card!!! With love, Carlie [email protected] (entered my email here because my tablet was acting strange) Thanks again!!!

  82. Ashleigh hall says:

    I love the fact that they pick out clothes for me! YAY!

  83. The Individual Inspiration is really appealing at Stitch Fix!!

  84. I’d love to try things that aren’t available at our local stores (and get them delivered to my door!).

  85. Tina goins says:

    I love that someone else helps style you.

  86. Natalie Hankins says:

    My favorite part iabout stitch fix is that it’s like your best friend went shopping for you and sent you a happy surprise gift of 5 items that you’re sure to love!

  87. Tammy Shelton says:

    I’m a “home body” and don’t get out lot and don’t really like trying on clothes, Thi would b perfect for me.

  88. Carmen goddard says:

    I like the convince – don’t get to the stores much.

  89. I love how beautifully packaged the boxes are.

  90. MarLaney says:

    I haven’t tried stitch fix cause I’m afraid I’ll like everything they send each month and go broke! But would love to try new styles!

  91. I am a mom to two boys. My oldest is 2 and my baby is 2 months. I am also a first grade teacher. Juggling work, the boys and the house is hard enough I can’t imagine shopping for me! I love how Stitch Fix provides clothes based on my personality right to my door! I would love some fresh clothes as I venture back to work after maternity leave! :-)

  92. Kathleen Welch says:

    I am impressed with the number of clothing and accessory choice that Stitch Fix offers and the personal attention that they give to each order.

  93. Josie Gibson says:

    Would love some guidance on dressing my pear-shaped body! Could so use the morale boost!

  94. Connie Bulow says:

    I keep hearing about stitch fix and love the looks I have seen. I just might have to give them a try !

  95. Jackie Reed says:

    Love how they personally pick your style.

  96. Would LOVE the opportunity to try stitch fix and have my own stylist!!!

  97. Suzanne says:

    Just received my 2nd Stitch Fix and I love it!

  98. I would love to win a gift card to Stitch Fix! I have friends who use the service and love it. As busy moms, shopping for ourselves sometimes gets pushed to the back burner. For anyone dreaming of having their very own personal shopper, Stitch Fix is the way to go!

  99. Elaine Hankins says:

    I have never tried stitch fix but would love to!

  100. Rachael Gerber says:

    Stitch Fix is like having a personal shopper! And for a busy mom that is fantastic!!

  101. Christi says:

    I need this!!! Some people have the gift of fashion, I don’t. It would be so helpful for someone to tell me what does or doesn’t look good on me.

  102. Lauren E. says:

    I need this. I have an eye for good fashion for other people, but when I buy for myself I tend to fall apart thinking nothing will “work” for me and then regretting I didnt buy an item.
    It would be great to have some help!

  103. I love the idea of someone shopping just for me! and not having to brave the traffic or crowds at the mall.

  104. Dawn Boyle says:

    I don’t have much style sense, so this concept is wonderful!

  105. I love Stitch Fix because it pushes me outside of my regular fashion choices!
    Colleen Williams recently posted..Crib Notes

  106. Tara G. says:

    What’s not to love about someone making you look good from the comfort of your own home?!

  107. Jackie says:

    I just moved recently and have been spending every single weekend on home DIY projects. There’s no time, patience, or energy left for shopping, but my wardrobe for work could really use some TLC.

  108. I personally don’t have Stitch Fix, not that I wouldn’t LOVE it, just not in the “paying-off-student-loans-budget” right now. I love how easy they make it to look good!
    Amanda {NoDakNest} recently posted..Tiling and Mastic and Grout…Oh My!

  109. Karen P says:

    I love that Stitch Fix personally picks things out for me, which encourages me to try something new and different. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  110. HEATHER says:

    I love the surprise of receiving a Fix. That you never know what is going to be in the box and that most often the things in there are nothing you would choose for yourself but wind up being beyond perfect.

  111. Samantha says:

    I can’t wait to try this. I think I will save up so that I can take advantage of someone picking out cute clothes for me. With little ones, I forget that I don’t usually get to shop for myself. What a great giveaway!

  112. Lauren says:

    I love getting new things that I would not pick out for myself. I can’t wait for my box to come at the end of May…it’s a bummer that there is such a wait lately but I love that its a great service!!!

  113. I love the ease of stitch fix and the high quality clothing. I also LOVE the style cards that come with each piece.

  114. I love how somebody else can shop for me

  115. Natalie C says:

    I just love the surprise! How fun to get surprise clothes to try on! Love love love it!

  116. KristineS says:

    I have not received a fix in while due to my budget but I loved the “presents” that awaited me when I opened the box. I always found something to purchase.

  117. I have read about Stitch Fix for a while now, but have not tried and would love to. The thought of someone else “shopping” for me sounds wonderful especially for unique pieces that I probably would not try myself. It would be good for me to step out of my box at this stage of life!

  118. I follow this blog and love the things they select!

  119. I’ve been getting fixes since August and I love that I always have such great options in my closet to wear! The styling cards take the guesswork out of putting together outfits!

  120. It would take the guess work out of what to wear!

  121. I love the idea of having someone else look at your style and then put together things that they think you’ll love … maybe picking things you wouldn’t think of for yourself, but loving. Plus, not having to go to stores and trying on at home?! The best!!
    Andrea@KnittyBitties recently posted..Baby Binky Bunny

  122. JoEllen says:

    StitchFix sounds like “the perfect” answer to all those who work, have a family and do volunteer work. Would love one of the gifts cards to “give it a try” and then share all the results with my family and friends.

  123. Kelly Palmer says:

    I think the best part would be the surprise of not knowing what will be in your box each month :)

  124. Loren Means says:

    I like that someone helps you with your style, makes outfit suggestions and it all comes straight to your house. It would be nice to change things up just a little bit while still staying true to my personal style preferences.

  125. Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

  126. Benny Sequeira says:

    I would like my daughter to try it, great giveaway.

  127. We are currently stationed overseas (APO) and sometimes finding clothes in my size and style can be difficult. And of course, it’s always challenging to shop with young children at my side! ;) I love that fashionable, affordable pieces come right to me. Thanks!

  128. Jill Gibbs says:

    Love the convenience

  129. Britni Ross says:

    I love getting the “surprise” in each fix. I’m not much of a shopper, so I love that someone else does it for me!

  130. Angie W says:

    I would like to try it, I am just not sure how pricey it is. This gift card would be great!

  131. Jennifer says:

    I have a really hard time shopping for myself. I would like to try Stitch Fix and a gift card would be great.

  132. The Clines says:

    Having someone shop for me would be awesome!

  133. Having someone pick out statement pieces that flatter my shape! I have no idea what I’m doing with my clothes most days ;)
    Lauren recently posted..The Face of Motherhood: Arrows

  134. Christa Frantz says:

    I love the fact that Stitch Fix will take the work out of being fashionable! As a busy working mom there isn’t always time to shop at a store or even online! Stitch Fix=one stop shop for real!!

  135. Judith Nicolussi says:

    according to everyone I know… I have no taste in clothes…. I can decorate a house or yard..but not myself… it sounds like an interesting concept.

  136. I love getting my Stitch Fix every month because it always makes for a fun mail day, and it takes the inconvenience of going shopping away. It keeps me trendy, with little to no effort from me!

  137. Looks like so much fun.
    Leslie Davis recently posted..Menu Plan Monday, May 12th

  138. Marcee Rodgers says:

    I don’t get Stitch Fix, although I’ve considered it:)I just love the idea of not having to actually go shopping!

  139. Love that it expands my wardrobe beyond Loft, Ann Taylor, and Banana and encourages me to try more accessories!

  140. Kari King says:

    I want to try this. I need styling help badly

  141. I love the idea of having a personal shopper put outfits together for me, without the schlepping around the mall!!
