Stitch Fix Fun! November Stitch Fix

It's STITCH FIX TIME again! My husband has started calling it StitchFix Christmas, and that's not far from the truth.  When I happen to notice (read: obsessively track via my phone and know right away) that box has been delivered, I'm like a kid rushing to the tree on Christmas morning.  The past couple of months, there have been some real surprises, too!  I do my best to figure out what's coming every month based on the titles in my invoice, but there just aren't always pictures available.  This is cool, because it probably means it's not a widely distributed item. 
Or at least this is what I tell myself when I'm impatiently waiting like... well, like a kid waiting for Christmas to come. Hahaha! 

If you've got this far and have no idea what in the world I'm talking about, check THIS POST.  I went into the minute detail only an wordy, over-explainer such as myself is capable of. ;) 

But back to November! Because I really like this box!

Why do these leaves keep showing up on that table, you ask?  Because every now and then I hop into a project, thinking it will take about an hour, and it turns out it takes more like 50.  So I'm getting all the mileage out of those leaves I can! ;) Plus, it's all nice and autumny, don't you think?

Once again, my stylist, Sonjya, hit it out of the park! This month, I asked for one (kind of boring) item in particular and then said (since that was boring) that she should surprise me.  And she did!  I haven't decided how I feel about everything yet- There are a couple of fit issues and such- but we'll get to that! In fact, let's do that now! 

What's that? SHOES? Why, yes!

Ezra Cuballa Embroidery Knit Top

This is adorable, right? The textures and patterns are to die for! And look how well it goes with those weird wedge moccasins I love so much!
That said, I'm not entirely certain it's ME.  I can't put my finger on it, and trust me, I've been trying since I first saw it! It might be one of those blouses that hangs around for a couple of weeks while I decide if I'll actually be wearing it or selling it to someone on the awesome Stitch Fix group on Facebook where it's probably totally someone's unicorn.  Because it's really that cute! (And soft, too!)

41Hawthorn Zardi Chain Detail Blouse

I WANT to absolutely LOVE this one.  It's this gorgeous burgandy silky fabric that sort of shimmers just enough to look lovely with a touch of maroon in the shimmer. 
But alas, the fit is not great on me.  There's quite a bit of gaping in the top around the arms.  I can't figure out if this is a product of the pretty wrapped double-chain that constitutes the straps and wraps through the neckline or if it's just too big.  I sent a close-up to Stitch Fix customer service to see what they thought.  If there's a smaller size available, I'll probably try it, because, like I said, I love everything about it but the fit!

Pixley Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan

If you know me and/or have talked to me at length about Stitch Fix (which, if you know me in person, there's a good chance you have) then you're probably wondering... why did she send that? It's just a boring black cardigan. 
Simple reason: I asked her to! 
I often wear layers when it's not quite weather-appropriate (I'm a pale, pale lady, y'all)  So I've been in search of the perfect black, thin, open-front cardigan to replace my pitiful, holey, black workhorse cardigan for quite some time.  When I ran across this one, I just KNEW it was THE cardigan I was looking for.  
And oh my, how it IS! Soft and flowy and the perfect thickness with POCKETS! (Ever heard someone wax poetic about a cardigan?) 
So I threw it on with the cute Gilly skirt I got in my very first fix and put the old workhorse out to pasture. (Trust me, it's happy now...) 

41Hawthorn Ackley Houndstooth Print Blouse & BC Footwear Hidden Cut-Out Heels

Well, they WERE hidden cut-outs.  But, as you can see, I found them.

Let's start with the blouse.  I've had this one pinned on my Pinterest Board for some time now.  Why? Because frankly, I can't get enough of these tab-sleeved blouses! It's a style I discovered through Stitch Fix, actually- if you look back, I know you're going to see a pattern... cream + black tab-sleeved blouse.  And guess what? I wear them ALL! I am going to see if I can size down in this blouse, but I'll be keeping it, regardless. And wearing it. A LOT. :) 
I'm really loving it with my 41Hawthorn Masie Faux Leather Panel Pencil Skirt from my October Fix!

And now... these SHOES! That's right... SHOES! I'm honestly so excited, I just... SHOES!
Because not only are they shoes (which I happen to have quite an affinity for and which, up until now, Stitch Fix hasn't been offering), they are beautiful RED shoes that are going to be wonderful for winter in Houston!  
And I put these babies on my feet, floated out to my husband and said, "It's like...walking...on a beautiful...red cloud" 
I imagine I sounded just that dreamily amazed, anyway. ;) 
Trust me, I've slid a heel or two on my feet in my life, and these are absolutely some of the most comfortable ones EVER to grace my tootsies! 
Sigh.  
I thought about sleeping in them last night after wearing them around the house but decided that falls just a bit over my carefully-maintained 'crazy' line. 

And that's it! Another Stitch Fix Christmas beautifully over until next month... when it's time for my Christmas Stitch Fix! (or two?) 
And in the meantime, go set up one for yourself, too! And click here, so you can use my referral link!  It doesn't cost you anything extra, but if you order a Fix, I'll get a little something as a thank you from Stitch Fix for referring you... and then you get your own link to refer your friends! It's a pretty awesome marketing strategy, I have to say!
And when you do, let me know! I can't WAIT to see what you get!!! :)
