Stitch Fix: When Data Analytics Meet Fashion – BusinessNewsDaily Stitch Fix is a data-driven mail subscription service that combines e-commerce with the human touch of a personal stylist. / Credit: StitchFix.com When Katrina Lake applied to Harvard's MBA program, she wrote her application essay about an entrepreneurial aspiration she had: to create a business that applied data and recommendation algorithms to the retail shopping experience. During her second year of business school in late 2010, Lake began testing that idea by having friends fill out style-preference surveys and picking out clothes for them based on their answers. This one-person, low-budget operation would go on to become Stitch Fix, the mail subscription service that combines high-tech analytics and personal stylists to send women clothes they'll love. For all the complicated algorithms the company uses, the way Stitch Fix works is actually quite simple.

Putting Me Together: Building a Remixable Wardrobe, Part 1: Reimagining Clothes Thank you for all of the great responses you guys sent in for the Wardrobe Help Survey! After reading the survey responses it was evident that wider questions about wardrobes were begging to be addressed. I wanted to squish them all into a neatly packaged series, but it got overwhelming so I decided to scrap the Work Your Closet series idea and turn it into a regular part of this blog. That way, we can cover topics like closet organization, finding your style, shopping for your body type, etc. over the long haul. Today, I really want to start the posts on building a remixable wardrobe. Again, I'm not an expert. Intro What is "remixing"? When I first tried to participate in a 30-for-30 before I had this blog was when I realized I had created a closet full of one-hit wonders. 3 Things I Needed to Learn I was determined to figure it out, and after much closet analysis and studying people who did it well (aka stalking Kendi's blog like a creeper) I realized I needed to do a few things:
My Latest Stitch Fix Box Review | Espresso and Cream Right before we left for our trip to Italy, I received my latest box of Stitch Fix goodies. Perfect timing, right? I was even more excited about the fact that this was the best box I’ve received yet! I fell in love with three out of the five items that were sent my way, which I would consider a big win. Since the weather is starting to get cool around these parts, I was also excited that the items I was sent were geared toward the changing temperatures and seasons. When I first saw the black pants I was a little skeptical about them. As far as the tops go, I put a picture up on Instagram asking what you all thought about the three. And then there is the trench coat. Want to sign up for Stitch Fix?

October Stitch Fix Box *This is not a sponsored post! I pay for these clothes on my own. However, this post does provide referral links for new sign ups which gives me a little credit to go towards my next box. So, this month’s Stitch Fix box arrived while I was in Chicago! Here’s what I got: Item numero uno: Ivy Zig-Zag Print Tab-Sleeve Blouse. Item 2: Conrad Textured Fit & Flare 3/4 Sleeve Dress. I try all my clothes on before looking at the price tags, so falling in love with this and keeping it was a bit of a splurge for me. $98. Item 3: a coat!! But once I close it, that collar. Here’s my 4th piece. Last item I got: Sophia Skinny Jeans. But on the back of these, they say “you look pretty skinny”…..umm. Overall, I kept 2/5 which seems to be a theme for me.
