My March Stitch Fix

My latest Stitch Fix is here and I really need your help with this month’s selections.  Part of me likes all of option and the other part of me doesn’t like a single thing.  Does that make sense?

It’s my 6th fix and I’ve enjoyed the surprise picks from my stylist every single month.  Some things haven’t fix or looked as good as others but it’s part of the fun.  Last month I had a few really bad looks and I’m sure you’ll agree.  Sometime’s it’s embarrassing to put bad pictures of myself on here but it’s all apart of the process! My wardrobe is looking pretty complete for Spring and Summer so I might take a break for a few months, we’ll see! Continue Reading »

My January Stitch Fix

My January Stitch Fix arrived this weekend and I am dying to know what you think of the items they picked for me!  This month I asked for some warm-weather looks for my upcoming vacation to Maui.  If you are new to Stitch Fix, it is an online personal shopping service that helps you find your style.  This is my 4th month using the service. I only have 3 days to decide which items to keep so I really need your feedback!

My assistant Jennalynn helped style my looks today after work and I think there are some keepers.  The first look is a striped maxi dress, something I really want for the beach.  Stitch Fix suggested that I wear it with a colorful cardigan or a jean jacket.  Since I don’t really have a cardigan that would work (mine are all long) we decided to go with a jean jacket and a colorful handbag.  What do you think of this look?My January Stitch Fix arrived this weekend and I am dying to know what you think of the items they picked for me!  This month I asked for some warm-weather looks for my upcoming vacation to Maui.  If you are new to Stitch Fix, it is an online personal shopping service that helps you find your style.  This is my 4th month using the service.

My November Stitch Fix

Last night when I got home from work I had my monthly Stitch Fix package waiting for me.  My assistant Jennalynn was with me so she stayed late to help me style the looks to share with all of you.

I’ve been using the personal shopping service called  Stitch Fix for that last 3 months and I’m loving it.  It’s great to have a mystery package with goodies waiting at my doorstep.  Each month I ask for something different.  This month I asked for a few holiday looks and some layering pieces.  There is no commitment to buy anything, let me know if you have any questions about the process!

The first item was a burgundy and black silk top.  Stitch Fix suggested that I wear it with denim and heels or denim, flats, and a cardigan.  Here I am wearing it with denim and heels.  I like the shape of the top, I think it looks better in person than it does on camera.  Chris said I looked like a member of Star Trek, I guess this is the color combo of their uniform.  Who knew?  What do you think?

The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

About a year and a half ago I was asked to be a guest contributor for the book The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style: Secrets to Shopping Cheap and Looking Chic by Lilliana Vazquez – and, the book was just released last week! Lilliana has been featured on The TODAY Show, Access Hollywood and The Rachel Ray Show and the book, inspired by her website Cheap Chica’s is a collection of her personal style tips, organization ideas and shopping finds for every budget.

The book is broken into segments: helping you find your personal style (there is a quiz!), how to stay organized, shopping for styles that flatter your body-type and wallet, and where to find the best deals. She even knows the best days to shop for the biggest discounts. I really enjoyed the book because her tips are honest, realistic and I want to highly recommend it. So treat yourself to a copy and give it as a gift to your girlfriends! You can order a copy of the book here.

I was asked to take part in the chapter “Making Cents of Your Closet” and below is a small excerpt from my submission. Enjoy!

My First Stitch Fix

Kuzak's Closet Stitch Fix

I had a package waiting on the front porch for me from Stitch Fix today and I couldn’t be more excited.  It’s a personal shopping service that ships items to your house based on your preferences and lifestyle.  You can have it come once or once a month, it’s up to you.  I read about it in Real Simple last month and decided to give it a try after a chat with my sister, she can talk me into anything.  You only pay for the items that you keep so I figured it would be fun!

I started by filing out an online profile and with questions about my size, my style, budget, and my lifestyle.  At the end of the profile you can give them additional feedback based on what you are looking for so I left a note for my Stitch Fix personal shopper letting them  know I was looking for sweaters and layering tops that I can wear with jeans and leggings this fall.  Ask and you shall receive!

Stitch Fix gives you 3 days to try on the items and mail back what you don’t like. Because I’m under such a time crunch I thought it would be fun to try stuff on and ask you for your feedback on what I should keep.  I don’t have to keep anything but if I keep all 5 items I receive 25% off my order, talk about incentive!
