10 Unexpected Favorite Finds from Stitch Fix // My Best of Stitch Fix

I’ve had a longtime love affair with Stitch Fix. Sure, we’ve had bumps along the way. All good relationships do. But when I think over the years of my many, many Fixes, I remember the cherished tops, the perfect accessories, and cute dresses most. I also think of those unexpected finds – the hoodie in my most recent fix, for instance, or the circle bag that I was dying for but didn’t even think to mention to my stylist. Those are the standouts. Those are the things that make me keep coming back for more even five years later. (Yes, you read that right! My first Fix was back in 2013!)

I’m thrilled to partner with Stitch Fix today to share my top 10 unexpected yet delightful finds with you. As we approach one of the busiest times of the year, there’s no better time to treat yourself to an unexpected find of your own. Holiday dresses? Stitch Fix has them. Business casual? They’ve got it. Designer finds? Yep, those too! If you don’t have time to shop for your kids or if a special man in your life needs some shopping assistance, they’ve got that covered too. (Spoiler alert: Dave recently tried out Stitch Fix and loved it! Full details are coming soon.)

For me, Stitch Fix isn’t just a personal styling service. It’s a way to treat myself to something fun and different without 1. a huge time commitment like braving the mall is, and 2. doesn’t break the bank since I often only keep a couple of items. Plus, it’s a fun surprise to open a box of things that someone else has picked out for you!

With all of that said, here are the ten unexpected favorites that I’ve loved from Stitch Fix over the years!

The Ones That Got Away // My Biggest Fashion Regrets

It was my first designer handbag purchase. It was too much money for me to pay retail for, so I stalked eBay auctions, learned all about authenticating designer bags, and read up on verified sellers.

I paid $350, or maybe it was $450, for my first (and at present, only) Louis Vuitton. I was 16 and was using one of my first tax returns ever on a Speedy 25, a bag I thought I’d keep forever.

Only, forever didn’t exactly happen.

With Labor Day Weekend here, it only made sense to share these recent looks featuring Ana Luisa Jewelry, a beautiful jewelry brand based in NYC created by designer jewelry lovers.

Adventures in Summer Thrift Shopping with Value Village // #FindtheFind

August kicked off with a heat wave here in the Pacific Northwest, which made me crave the lightest sundresses, hats, and bright colors to keep me feeling somewhat cool. Honestly though, with a lack of AC, it was just plain hot! Multiple days of temperatures in the high 80s and low 90s were a bit of a shock to my system, to say the least. I found myself running out of dresses and tops to wear that weren’t double lined or some sort of polyester blend as the days went by. So what’s a girl to do when you need new clothing fast and on a budget? Go thrift shopping, of course!

It just so happened that around that time Value Village reached out to me to work on a sponsored post, see my last post this past spring, and I knew this would be the perfect fit! So off I went to Value Village, also known as Savers or Unique Thrift depending on where you are located, in search of a few pieces that might hold me through the hot weather.

Casual Summer Outfit Ideas with Kohl’s

When summer arrives in Seattle, the city comes alive. Summer festivals, warm sun, beautiful blooms, cute and casual summer outfits, the fresh breeze off of Puget Sound and the hustle and bustle of tourists and locals enjoying the outdoors is hard to beat. I swear the sunny weather melts away the “Seattle Freeze” and reminds us why we love our city so much.

A Seattle activity I can’t resist come summertime is the allure of the visiting carnival. Almost every suburb of Seattle has their own celebration, featuring carnival rides, food vendors, local artisans, and musical performances. My friend Megan and I ventured north of the city to enjoy an evening at the fair.

Bright flashing lights, colorful rides, and the sweet smells of elephant ears, strawberry shortcake, and cotton candy filled the air as we walked through the carnival. I couldn’t resist snapping a few photos of this cute little striped long blazer and coordinating striped shorts from the LC Lauren Conrad line at Kohl’s. A Coca-Cola Graphic Tee was the perfect pop of color, and of course, I couldn’t forget to grab a bottle of the real thing to sip on!
