Stitch Fix review October 2018

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. If you use my affiliate link, I may receive a small commission.

Happy fall all! This is a great time of year for cooler weather, apple picking, pumpkin picking, Halloween, Thanksgiving and of course fall fashion.

This month I asked my stylist for a fun box since it came right before my birthday! He sent me a complete outfit which is super cute.

I want to explain to you what Stitch Fix is if you don’t know already and then I will get into what I received. If you know all about it then you can scroll down and get into the review!

Stitch Fix is a monthly subscription mail order for clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories. You get 5 items in each box. You set up your personal profile and customize it to your liking. It’s like Christmas in a box every month!! I can’t wait for that brown box to arrive with the Stitch Fix tape on it. I get an email that it shipped out and I track it when it should arrive. Usually in 3 days or less.

Once it arrives, I open the box and get a price sheet with the description of each item. I also get a card which shows each item I received, how to wear it and a personal note from my stylist.

Listed below is the style card I received for this fix. Now let’s get into what I received.

Stella & Ruby – Irene tortoise slab necklace $38

I normally ask not to have jewelry in my Fix because I do have enough costume jewelry. I have to say this piece is unique and colorful. It looks heavy but it’s really lightweight. It can pull out many colors in an outfit. I decided not to keep it only because I don’t need anymore jewelry at this time.

Keds – Kickstart x Kate Spade novelty lace up sneaker – $110

I have to be honest with you, I don’t usually spend that much money on a shoe unless it’s really good, well these are that good! I’m all about the leopard print this season. It’s all the rage too! I haven’t seen anything similar to this pair. Yes, they are Keds but designed by Kate Spade hence the price. I really like these but I have to watch my spending, I’m still contemplating these! I should just by it all for my birthday right?!

Hummingbird – Liara knot front knit top $34

Mix by 41 Hawthorn – Martina slub knit open cardigan $38

Kut from the Kloth – Dayna skinny jean $88

Below is the whole outfit together. This look is so comfy and stylish. My stylist Jason nailed it! He knew that I love the Kut from the Kloth brand and sent me these skinny jeans. I wish I didn’t have these jeans otherwise I would of kept them. I did decide to keep the knit top. I have a picture of it with and without the cardigan below. I decided not to keep the cardi because I do have a black one but it’s so soft and like like the slub pockets.

The brown and black together with the leopard sneakers is a great combo.

That is my October review of Stitch Fix and the items I received. My stylist did a amazing job matching items to my style. If you decide not to keep all the items, you can return them for free with the enclosed envelope that is prepaid. It’s so easy to do or if you decide to keep all the items, you will receive 25% off your total.

If you’re looking to give a gift that they would love, Stitch Fix offers gift cards. They are actual cards or it can be emailed to that special someone. Here is the link to mail the gift card:  gift card mail. Link to email the gift card:  gift card email .   Link to print your gift card at home: gift card print at home.

Hi there,

Since my first Sip & Style was a success, I decided to host another one at the Loft at Paramus Park mall in Paramus, NJ. What could be better than food, drinks and shopping with friends and family?!

When I first got to the Loft, the food and drinks were out already to get the party started.

I got right into greeting my guests and started to help style them. The spring and summer collection is out. There are so many cute pieces, I wish I could buy them all! I will link some items if your interested in buying them.

This yellow floral top below would look great with white shorts or jeans.

I’m showing my friend how adorable this tee is that I am wearing under my denim jacket. She ended up buying it too. I told her we can’t wear it on the same day! It’s a lightweight shirt that you can wear dressed up or down. I wore this tee with these striped wide legged pants which I linked below.

Here we’re looking at some other printed tee-shirt options. We found so many pretty prints.

Thank you to my friends and family who came out to support me. It really was a fun time. Thank you to the people who didn’t want to be photographed as well. I totally understand! Until I started blogging, I hardly ever had pictures of myself! It was always was just pictures of my husband and the kids.

Unique wood watches by Jord, a must have accessory

Hi there,

I first heard about Jord watches on Instagram. It really intrigued me, a watch made of wood, it’s so unique! They look so pretty and versatile.

I was excited to have partnered with Jord watches. When I received my watch it came in a cedar wooden box that smelled amazing! The storage box has a draw and plenty of room for all of the accessories. It included extra links, 2 cloths and finishing oil. Shown below are all the items the watch came with.

These watches come in all different styles and sizes. I chose the Frankie series watch #35. Since blue is my favorite color it was a no brainer.

Here is an up close picture of the watch I chose. We just had a snow storm prior to when I received the watch. You would think wood would be rough on your arm but it is so soft that it doesn’t hurt at all. Sometimes I forget it’s on, it’s that light! Another thing that makes this watch special is the clasp to close it. It’s so unique and easy to close it by myself. It really is a great watch, you won’t be disappointed.

Here is the link to this watch:

Frankie watch 35

This watch is made from zebrawood and has a navy face. It is splash proof but should not be submerged in water. I think the prices are reasonable for a custom made wood watch.

Here is the link to all of Jord’s unique watches: Jord watches. Take a look at the men’s and women’s watches.

They also offer a one year from date of purchase warranty.

Jord also offers engraving their unique wood watches and/or their cedar watch box making a great present for a loved one.

Jord is offering my followers a chance at winning $100 off one of their watches! Listed is the link below:

Contest link

This contest will close on 4/8/2018 at 11:59pm CST. Good luck!

Hope you enjoyed this review of Jord watches, why not give them a try!

Midori Linea – New York fashion week event

Hi there,

I was so excited when I got invited to my first New York fashion week event for the Midori Linea jewelry line! This is a big deal to me. I started blogging in May 2017. It really has been taking off and I’m so happy that all my hard work is paying off.

This event was held at the W hotel in downtown Manhattan. My first thought was what to wear and then who to invite. I decided to wear a black lace dress because it was a big event and it was a fun night out. I invited a great friend because she is the one friend who has supported me from the start.

This event was on a Friday night. I worked during the day then we headed into the city. It was on the 5th floor of the W hotel. The room we were in was really cool. Here is a picture of the living room bar area and it had panoramic views of the city.

When we got there I met my first blogger babe Ashley. Her Instagram handle is AshleyJennany. She is super sweet and has great fashion style.

After chatting with Ashley my friend and I got magical galaxy makeovers. The makeup artists added some shimmer and shine to our faces. Magical galaxy was the theme for the event.

Since we were the first 30 people to arrive we got a gift. It is the Montana Cecelia bracelet. The gem is such a pretty color.

Next we met Sakura who is the designer of this jewelry line. She was really nice and explained to us how she got started and then showed us some of her beautiful pieces. All her jewelry is handmade.

I had my eye on this Anya choker. It looked so pretty on and it is lightweight.

I then met another blogger babe Nicole. Her Instagram handle is stayathomestylist. We are both from New Jersey! She also has great style and is so sweet. We chatted for a bit.

The room was dimly lit so unfortunately my pictures are darker than usual.

It really was a great night meeting some of these ladies I interact with on a daily basis. They all have amazing style, are sweet and up lifting.

The last blogger babe I met is Tammy. Her Instagram handle is houseofleoblog. She is from New Jersey as well! I love her fashion style and she’s so sweet too.

My friend and I hung out for a little while longer before we headed out to eat and then home.

This night was a great experience and I really enjoyed myself. I was honored to be invited and grateful to meet such wonderful ladies. Thank you to Sakura for creating this beautiful jewelry line and it was a pleasure meeting you. I wish you all the best.

Here is a link to her website Midori Linea. Take a look at her beautiful handmade jewelry.

Ruffles and more

Hi there,

Well here in New Jersey we are in the middle of a bomb cyclone! I never heard of this term something new to me! It is a snow storm with a lot of wind. So needless to say I’m staying warm inside and taking the pictures in here. I hope where ever you live it is warmer than here.

I’m loving ruffle tops these days. The ruffles could be on the shoulder, arm, across the front or back of the top. It gives the sweater or top a feminine detail.

I paired this sweater with a black pair of leggings and black riding boots since it’s so cold out! You could also pair this with jeans for a more casual look.  The purse I’m wearing is a Christmas present from Santa!

Here is a closer look. This bracelet I have on is a wrap bracelet that attaches by magnet. It’s very easy to get on by myself.

If you are interested in this look, here are the link below for these items.

Shop this look…

Ruffle sweater    Petite size

Ruffle sweater Plus size

 Black leggings these are tummy control! 

Riding boots

Purse  – It’s not the exact one but I found a similar one

Bracelet

Stay warm and thanks for stopping by.

Parklane Jewelry -Necklaces

Hi there,

I got together today with Helen a Park Lane jewelry stylist/director. I had so much fun trying on new pieces of her collection, I wanted to share these with you!  I paired them with some of my outfits. We also tried layering necklaces. You can dress these up or down. They are versatile for every occasion.

This one was one of my favorites!! I’m all for anything blue. My birthday is in September so I’m partial to blue since Sapphire is my birthstone! This is the nightingale necklace.

This next necklace is a genuine stone that comes in a few different colors: blue, white, pink or green. I happen to like the white one. This is the sunstone necklace.

We layered this next necklace. The first one is the sacred eye. The long one is the blushing necklace. They both have crystals in them and the chains are rose gold in color.

I really like how delicate this next one is. It’s 3 necklaces in one. It is called the Arianna. The beads are made out of glass. It light in weight.

This last necklace is called Sheen. It is made of crystals and the pendant is adjustable. The back of the crystals have gold, rose gold and silver colors.

If you are interested in any of these pieces or would like to look at Park Lane jewelry here is a link: http://parklanejewelry.com/cart/start/id/58994/fsib/239307-9

They have good quality jewelry and great prices! Take a look!
