It's that time again! I am so excited to share my October Stitch Fix review with you for a few extra special reasons. First of all, its the first fix I am able to share from our new house. Rob beat me to the punch a little when he shared his own styles from Stitch Fix Men a few weeks ago (that's right … Stitch Fix now styles for men too! You can read more about it here.)
The timing of this post is also fun because today Rob and I are heading home from our trip to San Francisco, where I had a chance to visit the Stitch Fix offices, warehouse, meet my stylist and even cross a major item off our Double Date Bucket List. I promise to share the full story soon. In the meantime, want to see my October fix?
For this fix, I told my stylist, Layla, that I have been wearing black leggings a lot lately and I wanted more long tops and sweaters that I can wear with leggings this fall. I was pleasantly surprised to see that all five items in my fix this month were long enough to wear with leggings. If you've been on the lookout for comfortable, modest options to pair with leggings, you are going to love this fix!
Serafina Lace Detail Cardigan
The first item I tried on from my October Stitch Fix box was a gray Serafina Lace Detail Cardigan from Le Lis ($58). You probably already know this, but just in case you don't, I am a huge sucker for lace details. And neutrals. And this cardigan had both of those characteristics working in its favor. I wore the cardigan with the Vivienne Split Neck Blouse from Daniel Rainn that arrived in my 22nd fix. The colors of the blouse were a perfect compliment to the gray sweater.
I also wore my Romantic Blush Tieks. Don't let the pink base color fool you. My shoes have a warm metallic color to them, which helps them to instantly add a dressy touch to any comfortable outfit. Plus, I've broken them in completely and they are the most comfortable pair of shoes in my closet. If you're curious about Tieks, you can read more about them in this blog post.
Now back to that cardigan …
It looked simple and ordinary in front, but the back of the sweater had some really elegant lace detail, which spanned from shoulder to shoulder. I like how it provided a little peek at the floral blouse I was wearing under the cardigan.
While the Serafina Lace Detail Cardigan was lovely, I ultimately decided to return it. I wear my hair down every single day and my all of the pretty details were hiding under my long locks, which basically meant that I was paying extra for lace detail and not able to rightfully show it off.
Barty Henley Tunic
I fell madly in love with the Barty Henley Tunic from Market & Spruce ($58) that Layla included in my fix the moment I laid eyes on it. The rich purple color is exactly my style and the 3/4 length sleeves are perfect for the arrival of cooler temperatures. I loved everything about this tunic: the color, the fit, the detail of the gold buttons and (most importantly) the fact that it was long enough to wear with a pair of leggings!
I had so much fun styling this tunic. It was the perfect excuse to dust off my riding boots (similar here) and get them ready for another great fall season. I also added my bisque Pointed Lace Top Extender from Grace and Lace. The warm cream color looked so rich with the purple, black and gray. It also really helped to elevate the look and make it look just a little more special. I own several extenders from Grace and Lace and I highly recommend adding them to your closet.
I love this outfit because it's very comfortable and slightly casual, and also dressy enough for me to wear to work. It's perfect! The Barty Henley Tunic is definitely a keeper.
Benete Back Slit Knit Top
The third item Layla include in my October Stitch Fix box was the Benete Back Slit Knit Top from Loveappella ($54). This top was much more fitted than what I typically wear, so it was out of my comfort zone.
The back of the top had a shoulder-to-shoulder cutout, that was very interesting, but again … not quite my style.
After a few photos, I wanted to transform the Benete Back Slit Knit Top into something that better resembled my usual style. I slipped on the Kaylie Solid French Terry Blazer that came in my 15th fix and felt much more at ease. The ultra-soft blazer feels more like a comfy sweater and it has become a cold weather staple in my closet.
In addition to the Benete Back Slit Knit Top, Kaylie Solid French Terry Blazer, leggings, and black riding boots, I also wore my silver Kate Spade watch and the Perry Street Olivia necklace (similar here) that came in my Rocksbox a few months back.
