In case you missed out, a couple of weeks ago, I shared the pieces I received in my first Stitch Fix (read part 1 & part 2 here).  I had been hesitant about giving up control of picking out my own pieces but was pleasantly surprised with what my stylist picked out for me and even ended up keeping one of the tops! I liked the experience so much, I decided to keep my fixes coming and received my second fix last week.  This fix, again, included some great items and again, I decided to keep one.  Today I'm sharing a few tips to help you all receive your best Stitch Fix box yet.   

1. Make a Pinterest board.  As a blogger, I am lucky enough* to have a record of a number of outfits that I have worn in the past.  My stylist was able to take a look at my blog and get a sense of the type of pieces that I like to wear.  In my most recent fix, she noted how she noticed that I love spending my summer days at the beach and thought this kimono would work great not only as a summer jacket but also as a beach cover up (side note- she's totally right! A kimono makes a great summer cover up when paired with denim shorts) If you don't have a blog (aka.thousands of photos of your outfits), try creating a Pinterest board of outfits that inspire you and outfits that you want to recreate...Start here ;)  Then, share this board with your stylist and she will use this to help pick out pieces she thinks you are interested in.  

*well some of the earliest outfits I wish I could forget ;)

2. Be honest in your style profile.  Your Stitch Fix style profile is not the time to lie about your measurements, sizes or personal style preferences.  The more honest and detailed you are, the better your items will fit your body and your style.

3. Send notes to your stylist.  Think about the pieces you wear over and over again.  Are there any similarities in the type of piece, the colors, the shape, etc?  Personally, I stick to classic shapes and love experimenting with fun colors or patterns.  I usually wear more modest outfits, love denim and my favorite part of my body to show off is my legs.  Sharing these types of details with your stylist may seem unnecessary but it will make all the difference when your stylist goes to put together your next fix.  Also, if you have a special occasion or a specific trend you have been wanting to try, send a note to your stylist and it will be taken into consideration!
