Good Morning Everyone! ☕️
I hope you enjoyed part one of the Stitch Fix Tastemakers Event recap! I loved going back and reliving it all. I’m also super excited because my next Fix will be arriving in the mail this week. ♥ I’ll make sure to share all the photos with you!
Day two of the Stitch Fix Tastemakers Event was amazing! It was filled with lessons on photography, styling, designing, staging products, an amazing lunch, hair & makeup, a photoshoot, and a delicious dinner!
My body was still on Charlotte time, so I woke up a little too early! Before getting coffee and breakfast, I headed down to the hotel’s gym at 4:30 am to run four miles. This was the first time in my entire life I ever worked out at 4:30 am…& I didn’t like it. My body was in complete shock! Lesson learned 😉 I did manage to finish the workout, and then I headed back upstairs to get ready for the day!
I ordered a couple of coffees, a grapefruit, and delicious oatmeal!
Relax time <3
I headed downstairs to meet up with the beautiful Kyrzayda to help shoot some photos.
San Francisco was screaming sweater weather, and I loved it! I had my new Stitch Fix jeans, purse, necklace, and sweater on!
All of us girls met in the Lobby at 9:00 and headed over to visit the Stitch Fix studio! GUYS, their studio was a dream. It was wide open, giant warehouse windows, and all kinds of natural lighting beaming through!
It was so cool because we all designed a top that’ll be out in the spring! They have over a thousand tops. Coming up with names for the top is hard because most of the names are already taken. We were all throwing ideas out there, and I thought of the coffee shop I like to visit all the time, Amelies, and it was available! So we went with it 🙂 You’ll have to look out for the Amelies top in the spring!
After learning all the steps to designing tops, we learned how to stage outfits and photography skills. I loved all the OOTD tips! The photo studio experts gave us so many tips for shooting and styling the perfect photo. All of us had racks with our names on them filled with Stitch Fix items for us. I just felt like a princess, and the surprises wouldn’t stop. Again, I was shocked because all the jeans, all the tops, all the shoes…fit like a glove! The stylist is so good.The beautiful Kimberly Kong! I love this girl so much—gorgeous lunch with the creative team. If you’re not standing on a chair to take a photo of your food, you’re doing it all wrong.
I’m going to turn these cute little stones from all the dinners with my name on them into magnets.
The food was incredible. It was catered by HeyDay, a super fresh and unique restaurant that makes its dishes from scratch daily.Vegetarian and gluten-free raw kale salad with yogurt, avocado dressage, and toasted seeds.
The sandwiches were roasted cauliflower with salsa verde, pecorino, aioli on a baguette. All of the food was fresh and tasty! We were so spoiled.
After lunch, we had a happy hour while getting our hair and makeup done for the photoshoot! How adorable are these Stitch Fix cupcakes?
The La Mienne team came to the hair and makeup rescue!
Makeup artist: Maria Alavarez Orozco
I’ve actually never had anyone style my hair or do my makeup before. This was such a treat.
(no makeup yet!)
I wish I could have someone do my hair every day! We shot some fall looks, and it was so much fun! Goofing off for some photos 🙂
CARGO JACKETS FOR THE WIN! Fueling back up after the shoot! Kimberly Kong & Coco Bassey ♥ (their fashion blogs are out of this world)We shot for a good four hours! It was so much fun, and we ended it with confetti group shots!

A gift for Kyle! I can’t wait to do a Stitch Fix with him. I woke up pretty early on Friday morning to pack, have breakfast, and get ready for a day of traveling.
I had such an amazing time, and I’m so impressed with the Stitch Fix company. They are so good to their employees, so positive, and put so much work into making each Fix perfect for their customers. I recommend Stitch Fix to any woman, any girl, and any guy out there.It was sad to say goodbye because all of these girls were so inspiring and super sweet. Back to Charlotte! (I’ll be filling you guys in on a recap post soon) Questions for you!
- Do you have any questions for me about the trip?
- Do any of you have a Stitch Fix box on its way? (filling out the style profile is super fun)
- What is your favorite fall accessory?
Thank you so much for reading! xo xo
