Stitch Fix Review October 2015

This month I had two words for my stylist Kristy: "Surprise Me."  Boy did she deliver!  I love love love this month's fix!  But let me back up for a second in case you're just hearing about Stitch Fix and wondering how I have a stylist that is surprising me with items I love and how you can do it too!

Stitch Fix is a service that sends you clothes and accessories picked just for you by your own personal stylist.  You fill out a simple but detailed "style profile" to let your stylist know your sizes, preferred price points, and about your likes and dislikes.  They will then send you 5 items picked just for you.  You get 3 days to try on the clothes in your own house and can mix and match them with the things you already own to see if it's something that will fit in your wardrobe.  If you like it, you can buy it.  Whatever you don't like, you simply mail back in the postage paid envelope.  The service costs $20 each time you do it which covers the stylists fee and shipping in both directions.  The best part is that if you buy anything, the $20 actually gets taken off what you buy!  And if love everything you get, you can take an extra 25% off the total if you keep it all!  If you want to try it out for yourself, join Stitch Fix here!

Ok, I'm not going to hold you in suspense this month, I'm going to show you my favorite piece first, because I just can't wait!

Kut From The Kloth Maisha Ponte and Faux Leather Jacket $88

This jacket is everything.  I love the mixed materials of the faux leather and suede. The way its cut makes it lay really nicely.  Some cardigans and jackets that I've tried on in stores just don't lay right when they are shaped like this, but this jacket seems to be perfect.  This is easily my favorite piece I've ever received from Stitch Fix.  And you know what??  It says it's machine washable!!!  What?!  Could this jacket be any better? (read this in your best Chandler Bing voice).

Excuse me while I spam you with some more pictures of this jacket.  It's just that good, lol.

In this awkward picture, I tried to show you the 3 button detail that the sleeves have, but turns out you can't really tell in the pic

The sleeves are a little long, but I love that in jackets.  To me, it makes it feel cozy.  Perfect for fall! 

If you must have it now,  I did find it here.


There's really no point in saying this but...

Loveappella Mayfair Lace Detail Knit Top $48

I'm always on the lookout for basic items with a little something different about them to make them special.  This tee with the lace embellishment fits the bill.  I dress casually most of the time and this is just perfect.  I cannot even express how soft this shirt is.  After we took these pictures, I went grocery shopping while wearing this shirt.  I found myself randomly keep rubbing my hands on the shirt in the store.  I had to tell myself that I must look like a huge creeper in order to stop lol.  It's that soft guys.  And...another piece that's machine washable!  Score!

Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse $38

This shirt is sheer so you do need a little tank top or camisole under it.  I kept thinking that it would be the perfect shirt if I worked in an office or somewhere that I would need to get a little dressier for work.  There is so much you can do with this top.  It would look great with skirts, blazers, pops of jewelry.   A great staple piece.  I love the tulip sleeves and the cute opening in the back.  If I kept everything else in this fix, it would have been an easy yes, but I've been trying to only keep pieces that I know I love and will wear all the time.

Level 99 Charley Zipper Coated Skinny Jeans $125

These jeans!  I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I saw "coated" skinny jeans, but I was intrigued!  I was afraid they might feel waxy or plastic-y somehow.  But really, they felt like butter.  I loved the zipper details on the pockets and the zipper/button on the ankle.  I was happy to know that you do not have to unbutton them to get them on! They fit great in the waist, but sadly they were too long on me.  You can see where they bunch at the ankle and create lines all down my legs.  Normally, when I get a pair of jeans that are just a tiny bit too long, I just fold them under at the ankle, and problem solved.  But because of the detail there, I couldn't do that with these, sooo...

I found these  Level 99 Liza Coated Skinny here- I'm pretty sure they're the same pants but in gray.

Bay to Baubles Zephyr Stone Stretch Bracelet $34

I pinned this bracelet and I'm glad Kristy sent it to me to try.  I actually really love it, but I didn't want to keep it unless I kept everything.  It's stretchable so it's easy to get on and take off.  It looks great with so many outfits.  I really loved it here and with the navy tee and mint colored jeans I was wearing above,  I'm kinda sad that I did this, but:

That wraps up October's fix!  This was seriously my favorite one yet and I can't wait to see what I get next month!  If you want to try out Stitch Fix for yourself, head on over and fill out the style profile!
