How do you shop for clothes these days? Online, hit up the mall, participate in a subscription service, avoid it at all costs, or can't get enough of it? Well if you're looking for a new way to shop, or just another way to shop, Stitch Fix just might be your new obsession. So what is Stitch Fix? In a nutshell, Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service that delivers a box of handpicked fashion items directly to your door!

Here's how it works:

First, create an account on www.stitchfix.com and fill out your style profile. Answer the questions regarding your style, size, and budget preferences. The more details you give, the better your stylist will understand your style preferences, so don't skimp on this part. Next, schedule a shipment date, or sign up for monthly Fixes! Your Stitch Fix will then be delivered to your door with 5 (total) hand picked clothing & accessory items. Try on all the items and pair them with the other items in your closet: this will really give you a sense of whether or not you will wear the item. The Fix comes with a styling card that will give you some great ideas on how to style each item! If something is pushing your style limits, refer to the card to give you some ideas on how to incorporate it into your wardrobe. 

You have three business days to decide what to keep and what you want to send back. If you are returning items, just place them in the pre-paid shipping bag and drop it in any USPS mailbox. Once you've made your decision and have sent back any unwanted items, you will then go to the checkout process online. This checkout process is where you'll provide feedback regarding each item you received: the fit, style, budget, look, and any further comments you wish to leave. I suggest you fill this out thoroughly as it will help your stylist choose the best items for your next Fix! Last step, confirm your payment, then go ahead and schedule your next Fix! For an easy to follow process, Stitch Fix provides you with an information card (instructions on the process), styling card, and price list for the items!

When Certified F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S. heard about Stitch Fix, we were immediately intrigued! We love to shop, but also love the convenience and service tailored to your style that StitchFix provides. So naturally we had to try it out! Both Jessica and I created accounts, filled out our style profiles and ordered a Fix! We have different styles so we were excited to see how our fixes compared! But keep in mind, this was our first Fix, so with feedback on this Fix, and others to come, I have great faith that the stylists will be recommending pieces that will get our style just right and push the limits a bit!

Piped Leather Wrap Jacket from Kiki La'Rue

Kiki La Rue Jacket Post

Taking your fall wardrobe into winter is pretty easy. More layers, thicker textures, warm coat, good boots and you're pretty much there. Depending on where you live, many layers will be key to staying comfortable in the freezing cold and moving into the warm indoor environments. When I first received the Kiki La'Rue Piped Leather Wrap Jacket, it was great to use as a light Fall jacket. The casual material combined with a chic cut and leather details will take a basic outfit up a stylish notch. It is much warmer than I expected; with it on I'm perfectly cozy and when I take it off I immediately feel the cold - this jackets retains some serious heat! Now as the weather is getting even colder, this jacket is a great layer addition to my winter outfits. Since it's not too thick, but still warm, it will fit easily under my thick winter coats and layers well over sweaters/long sleeve shirts.

I like to combine this jacket with a basic outfit - this jacket stands out on it's own, so no need for a complicated look! Dark skinny jeans, dark sweater, combined with a light scarf and some colorful earrings allow for a cozy but sophisticated look with this jacket. With a tie waist, you can create some different styles - tied it cinches your waist nicely and untied it hangs well to reveal a stylish shirt and/or accessories. I can definitely see why this is Kiki La'Rue's best selling jacket - cozy & chic it's a jacket you'll be using through many seasons! To find this jacket and more from Kiki La'Rue visit their website HERE.

Naked Wardrobe is an online clothing boutique whose mission is to offer the latest trends at affordable prices. Launched in 2012 their buyers, three sisters in LA, hand select the pieces reflecting the current season and trends emphasizing bold colors and quality fabrics with a contrast between contemporary and bohemian chic. Naked Wardrobe has the hottest and latest including shoes, accessories and clothes for women. Their pieces allow you to not only follow the trending fashion styles but encourage you to START the trend! There is a limited supply of each style, as they want each piece to be an exclusive addition to your wardrobe. Available on-line only, Naked Wardrobe offers MUST HAVE pieces for every fashionista.  

I had the pleasure of experiencing the site, which is well organized and I was thrilled to see the models on the site were actual woman sizes which made it so much easier for me to choose clothing since I had a similar body shape. I received the Snakeskin Contrast T (which is the photo above), which is now sold out and no longer available. Part of the charm of being a trendsetter :) You see something you like you buy or it might not be there when you go back. I like this idea because, like the company even said, it encourages you to start the trend and be one of the few to own it first! 

This site is ideal for fashion leaders and innovators to display their own compilation of clothing trends.

Fall Fashion Clothing Items

Zumba has been around for a while now and although I didn't pick up on the craze from the beginning I decided to get into it now, since I love to dance and it didn't involve back-aching floor workouts. I have walked by a class before at the YMCA but it didn't seem as intense as I would want so I didn't bother. Until I looked at the class schedule to discover they have different levels of the class! After going on their website, www.zumba.com, I have found out they actually have a lot of different types of Zumba classes, which was very exciting, not to mention a whole clothing collection and tons of useful information! I saw that my YMCA offered a moderate Zumba class so I decided to attend. 

I was so ready for the class, dressed in my new, and very stylish Zumba Wear clothing I felt the part...now the test was to see if I could fit the part! The instructor was a very outgoing and nice lady that looked totally in shape so I was excited to think that I could achieve my Zumba body by continuing the classes...but first I had to get through the first one. The music started and it was hits that play on the radio now so I immediately got into it. The steps were explained very well as we navigated through the first song. It was non-stop cardio fun, I felt like I was a backup dancer for a Britney Spears or Nicki Minaj concert.  I've done hip hop dance classes before and loved them, so I instantly loved this Zumba class...even if it was way more intense! 

Zumba wear Carpe white borderI had on my Zumba Wear "Carpe the Hell Out of This Diem" t-shirt which was the most comfortable shirt to wear while sweating it out! The material was perfect and was loose to be able to allow me to move in all sorts ways for each dance. I also felt very fashionable which always helps build that self esteem up, especially in a workout class where your trying to learn dance steps and sweating your a** off! If you check out the website and all the clothing they offer (a ton) then you would know how hard it is to not want to buy everything, hah. I loved the styles and colors of the clothes, it fits the whole message behind Zumba, just have fun! Think of Zumba as a dance party and not a workout, which is really easy to do and you will burn calories (a lot) in a fun way. Not to say you won't get a workout, you will! It is hard and it's an hour long! I was looking at the clock on 30 minutes into thinking "it has to be an hour by now!" only to find out I still had a whole 30 minutes left to sweat, lol.

To sum it up Zumba made me feel good and it is very much worth the effort! I definitely will keep it up and I HIGHLY recommend you try it! They have different levels and intensities and you can always adjust any move to accommodate your level of fitness or work around any pre-existing injury you might have that physically limits you. The clothes are a HUGE plus when taking the clas, since they best know the level of movement and flexibility needed they make the clothes perfectly for it! I have the Zumba Wear Racerback Cosmic Blast in Orchard which is a nice color purple :) I will be adding on to my collection, the leggings look so cool! www.zumba.com 

Have any of you taken a Zumba class before or have been doing it for a while?? FEEDBACK?

Happy Mother's Day Fabulous Readers!

I hope are mom's are enjoying your day with your family and getting in some much deserved R & R!

Today I am excited to bring to you the hottest summer trend to be sprouting up on the beaches and you will be in the know before anyone else! COLOR is in and lots of it too! Bright, loud, funky clothing will be peppering the sandy shores and be all the rage at the night clubs and I just happen to find a clothing company that specializes in the most colorful fashions. 

Desigual scarf clothing review fashion trend accessoryDesigual is a cool European brand hailing from Barcelona is known for their bright hues and funky designs. I happily received my Desigual Withe scarf and was excited to wear it out and about! It has practically every color under the sun in it so it is so easy to coordinate with most any outfit and I actually did rock it with several different styles. It is a perfect accent piece to spice up basic colors, such as black and white outfits or with jeans and a white T-shirt or I even was able to wear jeans and a bright orange cardigan with it. 

It is also a perfect beach accessory as you can use it as a sarong or tunic! I love scarfs that are multi-purpose :)
