Thank you to Stitch Fix for sponsoring this post!
The collection launched this past Saturday and I had the honor of getting to attend the launch – it was a part of Rebecca Minkoff’s fall presentation during New York fashion week.
One of the things I became acutely aware of while doing my inclusivity challenge last Spring was that creating plus size clothing is different; you need a certain level of expertise – you can’t just make everything bigger across all dimensions. There’s definitely a science to it and a lot of brands are realizing that they need a partner to help them expand their size range. In this case, Rebecca Minkoff teamed up with Stitch Fix to leverage Stitch Fix’s expertise in data science and fit! The new collection is beautiful, and the pieces come in size XXS – 3X (or 00-24W!) Everything is priced between $138-$248.
The pieces are BEAUTIFUL. My favorite of everything is the faux fur jacket that I’m wearing. I had worried that it would be too boxy or not cute on me but I LOVE it. But I also really love the blue print. A lot of the girls at the event were wearing the blue patterned bias cut skirt and I really liked that. And the stripe sweater!
So how do you get your hands on them? Similar to with Katie Sturino’s collection it can feel a little confusing as you can’t just order the pieces. But it’s actually pretty simple and I tell you this as a blogger who is working with Stitch Fix this go round but ALSO as a paying customer; when Katie launched her line I ordered a fix and went through the process myself so have done it from ordering a fix to returning what didn’t work.
- Peruse the collection here and schedule a fix.
- In the notes section, tell your stylist which pieces you’d like (you could even say, I want the burgundy faux fur jacket Grace Atwood was wearing and the blue print midi skirt, for example). Make sure that you also have your style profile up to date (noting that price preferences are $150-200 or higher and that you’ve opted into receiving Premium brand styles).
- Your fix will arrive on your scheduled date. In it, there’s also an (pre-paid) return bag so that you can easily return whatever doesn’t work.
- You won’t be charged until you tell Stitch Fix what you are keeping and what you are returning. This part is important, and something I really liked about the system.
I loved seeing the other influencers in attendance’s looks! We all styled our looks so differently!
Meeting Rebecca Minkoff was pretty cool, too. I’ve been a long time fan of the brand (hers was the first NYFW show I ever attended, maybe seven years ago!?). They’ve always been a forward thinking, empowering brand so it is really nice to see them take this next step!
