Kit & Ace Black Friday Sale Picks and Reviews 2015-2016
After scoping out the Kit & Ace Black Friday sale back in December, I put my Lululemon obsession on the back burner for a bit. Kit & Ace added a ton of stuff to their ‘The Last of It’ (sale) section at incredibly discounted prices on Black Friday – and they’ve continued to add new products to it each week, and well into January so far.
I have repeatedly taken advantage of these deals, ordering quite a few new items to try and coming back for more.
If you’re new to Kit and Ace, you’re in for a treat. They specialize in ‘technical cashmere’ – cashmere fabrics or cashmere blends that are washable, incredibly soft and super high quality.
At their sale prices, these pieces are a complete STEAL. Considering how much I loved my items when they arrived, I almost can’t believe I got them at such a low price point. I can genuinely say I’m obsessed.
After over a month of trying everything out, here are my picks and recommendations of ‘what to get’ from the sale:
EMORY BRUSHED DRESS
$98 (Regularly $188)
This gorgeous little number is flattering, super soft and is versatile enough to work for so many different occasions. Dress it up or down. Heels, flip flops or athletic flats, this dress will take you from date night, to casual Saturdays, to the beach, and back again.
It comes in Black and Heathered Grey.
HURON LONG SLEEVE
$38 (Regularly $98)
My favorite. It is SO soft. Light, stretchy and oh so comfy. It is the first top I’ve found that really does cover your bum (front and back), but is still form fitting and sexy. I am in love with the ruching along the sides.
I started with one, just to make sure I had the correct size. I was immediately in love and ordered a few more. I ordered the same size I wear in Lulu Swiftlies and it fit perfect. Some people did say they went down a size. I think you could get away with sizing down on this one, but I preferred to stay true to size.
I like this top way more than my previous fav, the Lululemon Devotion Long Sleeve Tee, which has been discontinued anyway. Since Lulu hasn’t really come out with a soft, fitted, Vitasea long sleeve top to replace the Devotion LS, I often wear their LS Swiftlies casually. Although I do like the Swiftly for running, when it comes to casual wear, the Huron Long Sleeve takes the cake. Easily.
I had a couple Swiftlies that I hadn’t worn yet and I headed straight back to the store to return them. (I already had a few that I use as running tops, and had only purchased these colors for casual wear). At $28 and $38 on sale, Hurons and Veras (see below) are nearly 1/3 the price of a Swiftly, and I like them SO much more. Who wouldn’t want to have 2 or 3 Veras or Hurons as opposed to just one Swiftly. 🙂 Sign me up for that!
VERA LONG SLEEVE
$28 (Regularly $98)
Just like the Huron Long Sleeve, but with a deeper scoop neck. This one definitely runs true to size (runs ever so slightly smaller than the Huron). Ditto to everything else I said above. It’s amazing.
These also come in more colors than the Huron, and I see more colors being added at the sale price weekly.
$48 (Regularly $118)
Adorable. This tank is a beautiful wool, silk and cashmere blend top. Pair it with leggings or jeans on a warm, breezy day. It can even double as a cooler weather beach cover up. One of our favorite Kit and Ace designs to date. It comes in White, Heather Grey and Black.
$48 (Regularly $88)
The same, amazing cashmere blend fabric as the Huron and Vera Tees, but in a darling, low scoop back, elbow length tee. At it’s current sale price, it’s not quite as stellar of a deal as some of the other products, but it was definitely our favorite design of the regular-waist-length tees.
$18 (Regularly $58)
This one is also oh so soft, but has a bit more of a substantial feel to it. Still stretchy and springy, this one feels so soft and cottony against your skin.
I ordered the Chambray Melange color and am in love. It also comes in Heathered Grey. I would definitely order your true to size and not size down.
At $18, I will buy this again and again. Feels amazing for both casual wear and the gym.
$18 (Regularly $48)
Same material as the Huron, Vera and Grace Tees, but in a soft, light tank. This style offers a little more coverage on the shoulder line than a traditional tank, making it a chic piece to wear out and about and not just at the gym. Again, at $18, for a luxe, washable, cashmere blend top, I almost feel guilty I’m not paying more. Almost.
Overall, Kit and Ace’s sale has been a gold mine. I’ve definitely found a new obsession, albeit only at their sale prices. I don’t think I could get myself to pay full price just yet. I will keep you posted. 🙂
Did any of you get anything from the sale?
