October Stitch Fix and The Best Booties Ever

October has come and gone and I'm just now getting to writing this. Again, life. Sorry you guys.

This box was everything I'd hoped for. Just with a really high price tag. I couldn't hang with this box, as lovely as it was. I kept choking on dollar signs and wanting to cry. Why do I always want the things that are A MILLION DOLLARS???

Ok, it wasn't that much, but still.

The first item I received was this dress. Fine, whatever. It's a striped knit swing dress. It was comfortable, but not very flattering. And not for almost $70. (I lost my style card and can't find this exact dress online, so I don't remember what this is called, but it was about $68)

But, see the shoes? Those are the Seychelles Snare Bootie in tan suede, and they will forever haunt me. I wanted to keep them so badly. But $140. I just couldn't pull the trigger. It was a terrible month to be sent the perfect booties. I really agonized, connived all kinds of deals and rationalizations, maybe I could have them... But that little part of me that is responsible and feels guilt made me send them back. I hate that chick. She's no fun at all.

Oh, and I changed my hair. I spent 5 hours getting it bleached and then dyed a light gray violet. This is another reason why I can't buy this Stitch Fix box. My hair is worth it. I'm sorry I didn't actually style it for this photo shoot, though. I don't have a good reason, I'm just lazy.

Oversized mustard yellow cable knit sweater. Yes, please!! This is the Glamorous Jelston Cable Knit Pullover Sweater $68. Spoiler alert, I kept this, it's the only item I kept. And I love it. I don't regret this at all.

I was also sent these light wash distressed skinny jeans by Vigoss and they were around $65. I wasn't sad about these. I already have a pair of light washed distressed jeans that I love (a Joe's Jeans find at TJMaxx), and these were also super low rise. Not cute. I do like the color with the yellow sweater though, so good choice from my stylist. 

Another view of the sweater, the jeans, and the boots. 

The last item I got in this box was the Market & Spruce Chaplin Hooded Anorak Cargo Jacket $88. I have been looking for an amazing anorak, but this wasn't it. It's cute, and seems well made, but I can't wear this tan color, it makes me look even paler than I am, and it's not worth $88 to me.

I have a very similar one in army green that I bought at Marshall's for around $20, so I don't need this. I have to admit, I did like it with the sweater and jeans. And the twill was soft and broken-in.

So that's it, folks! Sorry I haven't been doing the beer reviews lately. I will try to get back to that for November. I have a box coming just in time for Thanksgiving!


I might have convinced Daniel to order a Stitch Fix for Men so I can do a little "Guest Box" blog! He also likes beer. So maybe we will drink beer and open boxes together. 

He's going to love me for this.
