Hey babes! After coming down off the high(not really) of San Francisco, I’m super excited to finally share with you all of the fun I had with Stitch Fix a few weeks ago! Aside from seeing San Fran and checking a bunch of stuff off my bucket list, I got to spend a few days with the Stitch Fix team to see how the whole process works and saw a sneak peek of new pieces that are coming to the SF lineup and then to your closet! For those of you who might not know what Stitch Fix — it’s a personal styling service I’ve been using for over a year and a half. I’ve gotten everything from dresses, the best fitting jeans to shoes in my Fixes, and they style women, men and kids! So sit back and enjoy while I take you through my San Francisco adventure!
The first night was spent getting to know the other amazing bloggers and the Stitch Fix team over a beautiful intimate dinner at Marianne’s in downtown San Fran. After a good nights sleep, I spent my first full day with the SF team, had a wonderful panel with the CEO learning about the company and why it was started. We also had the opportunity to pick the brains of actual SF stylists and learned how they pick the pieces in each fix and that each box truly is tailored to each individual client. When I tell you the SF team is full of carefully curated experts, oh man. These ladies know their stuff–all the way from styling fit, marketing. They do everything with us in mind.
After the amazing discussion, they took us to one of the SF warehouse where the magic happens and we got to pick pieces and style someone’s fix! So someone out there has a fix that was hand folded by yours truly! Every piece in every fix is hand picked off a hanger and crisply folded by an actual human being. A lovely human I might add. Having the privilege of seeing where every fix starts and the process it goes through before it reaches our front doors makes me appreciate it even more.
I think the final full day was my absolute fav and I crossed a lot fo my bucket list for sure. The morning started back at SF HQ where we got a sneaky peek of all the new pieces, styles, fits and brands coming to SF this fall. The two things that I’m most excited about is Nike activewear and cashmere, but like affordable cashmere you guys! What?! I knowwwww. I’m about to request an all Nike fix haha. Which by the way, you guys know you can request pieces right?? I did it on my last fix and it’s probably my favorite fix to date. If you’re going in vacation, to a wedding, some place cold, starting a new job…TELL YOUR STYLIST!
After our morning at HQ, they whisked us away to Napa for lunch you guys! Can I just say I was literally planning a trip to Napa for next year, but U know my trip wouldn’t be nearly as beautiful as the one they planned for us. We spent the afternoon at the lovely Chateau St. Jean vineyard. I still can’t believe this place is real, it was so beautiful. I’d get caught at one spot taking photos, but two feet ahead was an even more perfect spot. before lunch we had some time to explore the grounds and take in the scenes. I ate a grape(or 10) right off the vine and let me tell you, it was the juiciest grape I’ve ever tasted. When it came time to eat we had a three course meal with each course having it’s own wine pairing. As someone who eats Chick-Fil-A cobb salads on the reg thinking I’m fancy, I was at a whole new level of fancy now I’m different. If the meal doesn’t have a wine pairing I don’t want it haha. Bonding with my fellow bloggers and connecting with the SF team in Napa was the perfect end to a perfect trip. I’m so thankful for Stitch Fix for inviting me in and letting me see their beautiful company from the inside out. If you’ve been on the fence about trying Stitch Fix or want to, but just haven’t made the time, I promise you you’re missing out on something magical. Sign up here and start getting your fix!
