This Stitch Fix box was a fun one. It’s been super cold and grey here in the Northwest so I was looking for layers and comfy pieces, with pops of color. I also requested a pair of sneakers and some black distressed jeans. While I had some fit issues, I loved these selections my stylist made for me.
