Recently I told you all about our first day at the StitchFix Headquarters a few of weeks ago…….. today I’m going to tell you about day two of our trip to San Francisco and our visit to the Stitch Fix Hizzy, aka the warehouse.

**Be sure to check out the end of the post to see how you can enter the $500 Stitch Fix giveaway!

Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service for women.  My daughter (17) and I look forward to getting our Stitch Fix box each month, so we were beyond thrilled when they invited us to San Francisco, along with bloggers (and sisters) Traci of Beneath My Heart and Cyndi of Walking in Grace in Beauty to get a behind the scenes look at how those cute boxes arrive at our doorsteps each month! If you missed day one, click here to read about our visit to Stitch Fix Headquarters. …..and if you’re still curious about what exactly Stitx Fix is, you can read my post about my first Stitch Fix box.

The Hizzy is where the magic comes to life.  A stylist has picked your fix for you and it’s sent to the warehouse via computer.  It’s there that it goes thru MANY hands before it arrives at your home.  I was blown away at how many check points each order goes thru to make sure you get the BEST Fix possible!! They showed us around and put us to work! We got to pack fixes!  We learned how to double check fixes and make sure they contained the correct items, how to fold items neatly,  how to wrap it perfectly in tissue, and make sure it looks perfect and pretty in the box!  We even got to sign the order slip that we packed the fix!  Next we added the return shipping bags and processed the shipping labels and sent them off to be shipped!

Meticulous care is taken to make sure each item is in impeccable condition and checked to make sure you get the exact pieces your stylist selected for you.! These people love their jobs. It was all over their faces and it was absolutely contagious.  Have you ever seen so many smiling faces?  I mean really, you couldn’t help smiling in a place with a giant robot made of boxes could you? 😉  (they plan to build a girl robox next hehe)

Happy faces behind the Stich Fix Hizzy {warehouse}

EVERY single person we met from HQ to the Hizzy was genuinely  enthusiastic about their job and making sure it feels unique and special  each time you open a fix!  I’m pretty sure every time we open our box, all of those smiles come pouring out and show up on our faces too!

I just hope I was able to share just a glimpse of all the excitement here with you all.   Prior to this trip we loved that we felt like we had a personal stylist……..but now I feel like I have a whole entourage taking care of my wardrobe! lol

    I love Stitch Fix because I love that someone is selecting items just for me. It is a little box full of smiles and fun!

    I recently lost a lot of weight, 90+ lbs!! And had no clue how to dress this new busy of mine. Saw a story on stitch fix and the rest is history! I’m in love, it’s amazing how the stylists can pick stuff that not only fits my style but fits my body perfectly!!! Never shopping by myself again. That’s what I like about stitch fix!

  3. Alyssa posted on May 9, 2014 at 10:30 pm (#)

    I like that you can try it on and return for free!

  4. Anna posted on May 10, 2014 at 12:50 am (#)

    Hey!!! I haven’t had much experience with Stitch Fix, but just from looking at a few photos, I can tell it looks amazebeans!!!! I love the idea and one thing I love most about it? Definitely the packaging! :)

  5. Amber posted on May 10, 2014 at 8:53 am (#)

    I’ve been getting fixes since August and I love that I always have such great options in my closet to wear! The styling cards take the guesswork out of putting together outfits!

    Not familiar with Stitch but willing to give it a try.

  7. Gretchen posted on May 10, 2014 at 5:59 pm (#)

    I would love to see what they would pick out for me.

  8. Justin posted on May 10, 2014 at 6:24 pm (#)

    Of course the fact that you can try things and return them for free is great, but what I like best is that it’s just such a unique concept and seems totally geared towards the benefit to the customer.

    I love having someone else pick out my clothes for me. :)

    I would love to reinvent my fashion with some professional help!

  11. Erin posted on May 10, 2014 at 9:54 pm (#)

    I would love having someone pick clothes for me because I tend to pick items that are too similiar

  12. Kathy posted on May 11, 2014 at 8:41 am (#)

    I am just hearing about Stitch Fix hear in Florida. I am starting a new job in August and need some new clothes. I love your pictures of the tour. You can tell people really like working at Stitch Fix.

  13. Julius Bufkin posted on May 11, 2014 at 10:09 am (#)

    Love looking at new cloths.

    I am an adoptive mommy with a 4-year old and 19-month baby – we are in a wonderful open adoption with his birthmother. That being said shopping with two littles is not possible. When we were saving for adoption, I did not shop for a long time. Now my wardrobe is out of date and I want to catch up to trends, so when I found Stitch Fix I fell in love and told everyone I knew. I find that being selective and buying only a few high quality items every month I love is more cost effective in the long run. A gift card would blow my world. :)

  15. Sara posted on May 11, 2014 at 10:51 am (#)

    I have a baby and I just don’t get a chance to shop even though I need some new clothes! I LOVE the idea of stitch fix and winning a gift card would help make it more affordable for me!

  16. Shelly posted on May 11, 2014 at 3:33 pm (#)

    I like that somebody else does the shopping for you!!

  17. rachel posted on May 11, 2014 at 4:32 pm (#)

    I like how an expert picks out the clothing.

  18. Lisa K posted on May 11, 2014 at 6:16 pm (#)

    We are stationed overseas (APO) and it’s difficult for me to find clothes that fit and are stylish. I love the idea of something coming right to me! Who doesn’t love good surprises?

  19. Margaret posted on May 11, 2014 at 8:05 pm (#)

    At 54 years old, I felt I was pretty confident in my style and how to buy clothes. One of my daughters-in-law introduced me to Stitch Fix and I am hooked! After only two fixes I have tried new things and love it! What I especially like about Stitch Fix is that it is tailored to my body type and style, while also helping me try on things I wouldn’t normally. Plus it’s absolutely fun!

  20. Karen Lynch posted on May 11, 2014 at 8:06 pm (#)

    I like that ithey give styling suggestions with items and different ways to wear pieces.

  21. Ashley Rabon posted on May 11, 2014 at 8:26 pm (#)

    I love that they keep up with current trends so I don’t have to!

    i love it!! i just got my 2nd box yesterday and it couldn’t have come at a better time! i just turned 40 and was feeling blah and lame and like nothing in my closet was doing me any favors. then voila! this amazing box of fabulous goodness showed up! everything fit, was super cute and i am keeping it all!

  23. anna pry posted on May 11, 2014 at 9:47 pm (#)

    i like being able to try something new that wouldn’t have picked for myself

  24. TaraO posted on May 11, 2014 at 11:51 pm (#)

    I like the element of surprise, yet you can establish some preferences for your box!

  25. Kim Michelotti posted on May 12, 2014 at 8:14 am (#)

    I have very little fashion sense and no time to shop – getting my Stitch Fix delivery every month is a huge time saver – they have helped me to really stretch my wardrobe – I cannot recommend them enough!

  26. MAH posted on May 12, 2014 at 10:04 am (#)

    I love the surprise of seeing what someone has chosen for me! I’ve ended up with some really original pieces that I wouldn’t have chosen myself and I totally love.

  27. Jess posted on May 12, 2014 at 10:53 am (#)

    I really love getting things that I think I wouldn’t like … and then completely falling in love with them and having them end up being my favorite piece from that box! It’s fun to be taken out of your fashion comfort zone :)

  28. Denise A posted on May 12, 2014 at 2:09 pm (#)

    I JUST LOVE A SURPRISE. There’s nothing better than opening a surprise package of trendy clothes and accessories to brighten your day!

  29. Leslie posted on May 12, 2014 at 2:44 pm (#)

    I love that as a busy mom I can skip the hassle of shopping and have it delivered straight to me!

  30. Jaime S posted on May 12, 2014 at 3:08 pm (#)

    I like that someone can help me find the right kind of clothes!

  31. ilona t posted on May 12, 2014 at 9:47 pm (#)

    would love someone else to pick out my clothes!

  32. Addie posted on May 13, 2014 at 2:01 pm (#)

    I would love to see what they would pick out for me!!!

  33. Kristin posted on May 13, 2014 at 4:09 pm (#)

    I just got my first StitchFix box yesterday, and I’m loving it! I didn’t like everything in my box, but that is okay. I had a blast looking at what they sent, checking out the style cards and making my decision on what to buy. I ended up with a really fantastic light summer cardigan and almost pulled the trigger on a couple more items. I am assuming the selection only gets better with each new box. Can’t wait for JUNE!

  34. Miranda Kuskie posted on May 13, 2014 at 4:51 pm (#)

    I love that they use my pinterest board for inspiration! I’ve always wanted to just make my pinterest board magically appear in my closet and now I feel like there might be a way to make it happen. It’ll be fun to get new clothes delivered every month tailored to my likes and dislikes. I’m going to schedule the June delivery and I’m SO excited to see what comes! Plus, how awesome is it that you get to try on the clothes AT HOME?!

  35. Traci posted on May 13, 2014 at 4:52 pm (#)

    I love that someone else does my shopping for me and keeps me from becoming a frump mom. With 3 little boys at home I have no time to shop for myself.

  36. Carmen N posted on May 13, 2014 at 7:10 pm (#)

    I like that someone works with you to find matches for your style. I’m not always good at that.

  37. Alison posted on May 14, 2014 at 10:58 am (#)

    It looks amazing! It would be wonderful if they offered a wider size selection, though. There are lots of people out there who are over size 14 who still love to look fashionable!

  38. eleanor posted on May 14, 2014 at 11:20 am (#)

    I like the idea of trying on clothes that i normally wouldnt ever try on in a store!

  39. Laura posted on May 14, 2014 at 2:57 pm (#)

    I love that the clothes come to your house and you can try them on there (instead of a tiny poorly lit dressing room in a store!)

  40. Vicki posted on May 14, 2014 at 4:10 pm (#)

    What an awesome idea! I’m so behind in today’s fashion that this would be an excellent way to get introduced to what’s hot and happening!

  41. Annette posted on May 14, 2014 at 4:51 pm (#)

    I love that someone with a sense of style picks out some things for me to try and if I don’t like them I can return with the prepaid label. So much easier than driving to the store to return.

  42. Marty W posted on May 14, 2014 at 6:41 pm (#)

    What I like most about Stitch Fix is that I would eventually have a workable wardrobe and look more put together.

  43. Brownie posted on May 15, 2014 at 9:43 pm (#)

    I haven’t tried it yet but see it on lots of bloggers pages. Thanks

  44. Tara G posted on August 6, 2014 at 2:53 pm (#)

    I love that the stylist picks out items I’d never choose for myself and when I try them on, I love them! It’s so exciting to see my box on the kitchen table and see what she picked out for me this month!!!
