My Trip to San Francisco with Stitch Fix & LUNA (Part 2)

THURSDAY

Touring the Stitch Fix “Hizzy” (Warehouse)

The Stitch Fix "Hizzy" WarehouseAfter breakfast we headed out to the Stitch Fix warehouse (nicknamed “The Hizzy”). There, among rows and rows of racks of clothing and accessories, we got the behind-the-scenes tour of how Stitch Fix actually works. It’s an impressively streamlined production!

After your stylist selects your five items, a style card is sent to the Hizzy. Clothing and accessories are all tagged and sorted into bins, and when you scan the style card, a computer tells you the item’s location and what it looks like. Stitch Fix has a team of engineers who have created all the programming and technology from the ground-up, so they’ve been able to put together a total custom system that works best for the company.

Behind the scenes at the Stitch Fix warehouseracks of Stitch Fix warehouseOnce the items have been collected, someone carefully (and artfully, I might add!) folds and wraps them to be neatly packed into the box. Thomas (pictured) is not only impeccably dressed, but also one of SF’s fastest folders. I’m sure he was nauseous watching me sloppily attempting to pack up a fix (in my defense, I had to fold a structured dress—that shit is hard!). Marlee, if you’re reading this, apologies for the B- pack job, but congrats—I loved everything in your fix!

Packing up a Stitch Fix fixAs with Stitch Fix HQ, the Hizzy seemed like a great place to work—really fun environment! They have a massive box robot monster, everyone seems friendly and, most importantly, shelves and shelves of free snacks. I’m talking hummus, pretzels, dried mango, trail mix—the works!The Stitch Fix box robot

Stitch Fix Photoshoot

Thursday afternoon was a girlie girl’s dream. We had our hair and makeup done and then modeled our favorite Stitch Fix clothes in a photoshoot while sipping champagne and stuffing our faces with macaroons and cupcakes. Best. Day. Ever.

dry bar mean girls mai taiI don’t wear a lot of makeup because, well, I have no clue how to do anything beyond bronzer and mascara, and I’ve actually never had my makeup done for me. I loved how the makeup artist made me look! She kept things subtle knowing that I don’t wear a lot of makeup, and it was perfect.

After makeup, it was on to Dry Bar to get a blowout. They were showing Mean Girls at the time, which really just took the whole experience to the next level. Does that move ever get old?? No.

Stitch Fix photoshootWhen it came time to pick out our outfits, we had some help from stylists. I’m all about casual looks lately, and the more denim and leather the better! My first look was a plain tee tucked into white pants with stilettos and a necklace. Up next was a conservative dress that wasn’t really my style, but it was flattering and admittedly the type of dress I probably should be wearing more often (gotta accept the fact that I’m no longer in college and should stop dressing like a slore haha). My third look was denim shorts with a tee and leather jacket—totally my style!

Striking a pose with Brittany & Gina

We had props to play around with during the shoots, and despite my D-list modeling skills, it was a ton of fun! If Stitch Fix sends us the outtakes, there should be a couple of me strangling a mannequin, smiling with a mouthful of cupcake frosting, and other amateur attempts at being a poor man’s Cindy Crawford—which I’ll be sure to share in my Facebook page Bloopers album.

Dinner at Central Kitchen

Our busy day ended with a phenomenal meal at Central Kitchen. In true blogger fashion, no less than eight thousand pictures were taken of each dish before it was eaten…

FRIDAY

Friday morning, Brittany and I grabbed a smoothie for breakfast with another health blogger, Elle from According to Elle. Two of my best friends from college live in San Francisco, so while the Stitch Fix/LUNA fun ended Friday morning after breakfast, I extended my stay through Sunday. It was so wonderful seeing my friends, and we spent all day Saturday sipping wine out in Sonoma and then went to a Darius Rucker concert that night—talk about a perfect day!

A huge thanks to Stitch Fix & LUNA! I was sad to see the trip end, and it’s back to reality in Boston now. I’m actually only home for a few days though—on Thursday my boyfriend and I head down to Disney World for a wedding. June has been crazy!

  2. So cool! I used stitchfix recently. What a cool concept! Do you remember who makes the gray tee? Its super cute!

    • I don’t remember the designer, but if you make a note for your next fix requesting it (maybe include a link to this blog post or pic of me wearing it), Stitch Fix will know which one you’re talking about. It’s SO soft–I definitely want it in my next fix! 🙂

  3. Love your shoes in the first pic! Who makes them? I’ve been looking for something similar for a while now! 🙂

  4. Hi Nicole, I just discovered your blog thanks to Brittany at EBF and I was hooked after the first post! I am drooling over the nude stilettos, do you know who makes them? Thanks!
