You guys, it’s almost December! How is that even possible?! November flew by and based on how quickly my calendar is filling up, I foresee that December will be gone before we know it too. Personally, I’m just trying to hold onto my sanity until Christmas Eve, because I always take off the last week of the year from work. (Insert confetti pop emoji here. Actually, make that several!)
Last weekend my most recent Stitch Fix arrived, and I can’t wait to share what I received with you. A new month always brings a new package on my doorstep, and my new stylist Bianca did not disappoint again! I asked her for holiday party-ready styles, and she most definitely delivered.

Stitch Fix also is now serving male clients too! Have a significant other or male relative in need of some shopping assistance? Send them over to Stitch Fix Men! It works the same way, and it’s perfect for the holidays because if we are being honest, most men hate shopping!
And for all of your gift-giving needs, don’t forget that Stitch Fix offers gift cards. From $20 to $1,000, there’s an amount that’s appropriate for anyone on your list. I know I sure wouldn’t mind seeing a Stitch Fix Gift Card in my stocking this year. ;)
So without further ado, here’s what came in my Fix this month!
Urban Expressions Nala Tassel Zip Clutch in Gold, $38
The first thing I unboxed was this stunning gold clutch from Urban Expressions. I love the fun tassel zippers that feel very art deco inspired. I paired it with this cute little party dress I purchased off-season for a bargain from Adrianna Papell and a pair of simple (but super comfortable) black pumps.
I’ve found a few clutches from the brand that I’ve linked below if you’re on the hunt for a beautiful gold (or metallic) clutch this holiday season. Most of the bags linked come in many colors, and all are under $50! (Most are in the $20-30 range.)
Market & Spruce Holley Waffle Texture Slit Back Pullover in Small, $68
There’s nothing like a warm, cozy sweater, and that’s exactly what this pullover from Market & Spruce is! I love the waffle texture and the bright, holiday-esque colors, plus it can be worn to work (with a tank top, the back flares out and is open) or tucked into a cute skirt for a holiday party. Here I’ve paired it with some comfy leggings, a simple black crossbody bag, and my trusty black ankle boots. Perfect weekend wear, if you ask me!
Because I loved this waffle-knit sweater so much, I linked a few different colors and style options below for your shopping pleasure.
Collective Concepts Donette Knit Burnout Velvet Dress in Small, $78
Um, velvet? Yes please! If there’s one 90s trend you must try, it’s velvet. Especially with it being holiday party season, velvet becomes the perfect addition to your wardrobe. This adorable dress from Collective Concepts is exceptionally comfortable (thanks in part to the drawstring waist!) and the burn out pattern is so chic. The only thing missing from the dress was a little color, so I opted to style it with a bright red Lady Coat, black sheer tights, a red clutch (similar under $20), and my very favorite Lady Pump.
Because I couldn’t find this exact dress online, I linked some other burn out styles in a variety of shapes and colors below.
Papermoon Macnair Stud Detail Blouse in Small, $48
Sometimes it’s details that make all the difference, and I think that’s true with this cute little blouse from Papermoon. The periwinkle color caught my eye, but what captured my attention are the adorable sleeves! Topped off with studded detail, I knew this top would pair perfectly with my new burn out velvet skirt I picked up at Fred Meyer’s on Black Friday. I also paired it with my sheer black tights, black pumps, and my Carly Clutch from GiGi New York.
Papermoon is a Stitch-Fix exclusive brand, so while this exact top isn’t available online, I did find some other tops with equally as beautiful flutter sleeves. Tuck it into your favorite skirt, or wear it to the office. I wouldn’t mind adding a few of these other beauties to my closet too!
Liverpool Anita Skinny Pant in 4P, $78
And of course, my Fix wouldn’t be complete with a chic pair of pants! Or in this case, leggings as pants. These are so form-fitting, yet flattering, and comfortable, yet look like fitted pants. I love wearing comfortable pants like this to work since I sit for the majority of the day, so I paired it with my flannel and my favorite Suede Moto Jacket (budget-friendly options under $100 and under $30 here). This outfit is very similar to something I wear often to work (swap the jacket for a sweater, my office hasn’t caught on that it’s November and A/C is no longer needed!) Because these ankle boots are so versatile and comfortable, I wear them often, as well as my cute little crossbody bag (shop similar for under $25).
Overall, I was pleased with my latest Stitch Fix overall, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me in the new year! Don’t forget to check out Stitch Fix Gift Cards to make gifting this holiday season even easier. I’m pretty sure that any woman (or man!) in your life who doesn’t have time to go shopping, or wants to try a new way to shop, will love it. Buy your gift card online here and then choose to email or mail the card to yourself or your recipient. So easy!
