Once again, I could not wait for my Stitch Fix to arrive. I was eager to see what she sent because I didn’t request specific items. I had my favorite stylist, Jennifer, styling this month’s Stitch Fix, and she did just what I hoped, she sent me items to push me out of my comfort zone (the most amazing jacket!) and colors that I would never pick for myself.
Just look at those colors! In case you’re new to Stitch Fix, it’s a personal styling service for women. You fill out a fun style profile online and utilize your pinterest style board, and your stylist picks out five items–selected just for you! There is a $20 styling fee per fix, but that gets applied towards whatever items you choose to keep. And, if you keep all 5 items, you get a 25% discount on everything. It’s safe to say that I am a huge Stitch Fix fan and I eagerly await my delivery each month. This post contains affiliate links, I may be compensated for clicks or purchases made from my blog.
Okay, okay. On to the amazing clothes from this month’s Stitch Fix:
Matti Pleated Front Blouse, Papermoon. ($44)
One of the things that I specifically requested was a red top to wear with my Minnie Mouse ears in Walt Disney World. This blouse, by Papermoon, is perfect. I love the pleated details on it.
It has sort of a romantic vibe, and could totally work for a Valentine’s Day top. The sleeves are sort of a cap sleeve, and the back has a sweet single button closure. I don’t have much red in my closet, so this top is very tempting. Since it’s still very much winter here in Michigan, I couldn’t wear this without layering.
I put a drapey, white cardigan on, that I found at Target last spring, similar here, and although you can’t see the sleeves, the pleating detail is still nice. Jennifer suggested that I do a messy tuck with the Matti Pleated Front Blouse and wear it with sneakers for a day at the Magic Kingdom.
It looks pretty great with my Minnie Ears, doesn’t it?
It even coordinates perfect with the Mickey park back pack. I’m torn on this one. I like the fit and I know I will wear it in Disney World, but I feel like maybe it isn’t special enough. RJ asked me if I can find something like this at the Gap or Target. What do you think?
Kate Boyfriend Jeans, Kut from the Kloth. ($88)
I just don’t know about these boyfriend jeans. I’m totally a skinny jeans sort of girl, and I know that in my style note I asked to be pushed out of my comfort zone, but I just am not convinced that this is a good style for me. In my very first Fix, I received a similar pair of denim, and sent it back.
I like how they look with my TOMS, but other than flats or sneakers, I’m not sure what sort of shoes I could wear them with. And I definitely cannot wear flats or TOMS without socks until Spring. (My TOMS were a special Mother’s Day pair from 2012, but you can find similar patterned TOMS here and here or pretty lace ones here.)
The fit is great and I really like the wash of them. I’m just not sure I’d reach for them enough to justify keeping them.
Carlito Dolman Knit Top, Papermoon. ($38)
The ladies on the Stitch Fix Facebook groups go kind of gaga over dolmans. While I love a good dolman, I feel like this shade of pink washes me out.
I don’t really own any pink. I’m just not a pink girl. I wish this was a vibrant blue or yellow. Then I would be 100% sold on it. I love the fit, and the price point is great.
Can we talk about the boyfriend jeans again? I really am baffled at how to style them. I’ve seen other, way more stylish, women pair them with booties. But when I put them with my Minnetonka Booties, they look…awkward. Right?
I decided to try it on with my new floppy hat. RJ and I went out for my 31st birthday last week and Francesca’s was having a pretty great sale, so I had to buy the hat. (here is a similar hat from Target.) I do love the fit of this dolman. Ugh. What should I do? Do you think the pink washes my pale skin out?
I was sure I was sending this back, but now looking at the pictures, I sort of think I should keep it. Such a tough call.
Loira Faux Leather Detail Jacket, Monoreno. ($68)
This jacket. I am obsessed. When I pulled it out I actually gasped and said “Oh no” under my breath. I knew I would love it, but didn’t think that I needed a jacket. And even when I tried it on over my pajamas, I loved it. It fits me perfectly. I do need it.
Doesn’t it add just like right amount of “I’m not a regular mom, I’m a cool mom” to my look?
I love it. I love it. I love it. I love the gray sleeves and how they stand out against the darker gray body. I love the hood (its detachable!) and how it’s edgy, but not too edgy. I tried it on with my burgundy Level 99 straight leg jeans from my fifth Fix, my black booties, and this mombie tank that I adore.
It looks great zipped up. The one thing that don’t love is the lack of pockets, but that is so not a deal breaker for me. The jacket is lined, but not super warm, so it’s more of an in between jacket and not a winter jacket. It’s perfect for when I’ll be inside, such as walking around Somerset, but I don’t want a bulky winter jacket that is going to make me hot. RJ told me I look too cool for him, but he likes it.
Oh and the hood, it’s lined in gray lace. Lace! As if I didn’t love it enough already. I love soft details in the hard, more edgy looks.
I like the big collar. I don’t own anything like this and I am so glad that Jennifer sent it to me. Defintely, 100% a keeper.
Shurman Pullover Sweater, Papermoon. ($68)
I love how vibrant this sweater is. I asked Jennifer to send me more color, and she did.
I love how this pullover sweater fits. I’m a fan of sweaters that have sleeves that almost hit my knuckles. It’s a cotton, acrylic blend and I could totally wear this into spring, and even pair it with shorts for cooler summer evenings. If it wasn’t $68 I would definitely be keeping it.
I paired it with my destructed white denim from the Gap, a long mixed metal necklace, and my Jessica Simpson Booties, similar here. The back is rounded and a little bit longer, and has a different knit detailing. My white jeans were a clearance find last summer, but you can find similar destructed denim here.
I really appreciate details that make pieces unique. All 3 of the tops Jennifer sent me this month were Papermoon, and they all fit me pretty perfectly.
To make it look a little more wintery, I put this Sherpa Vest, that Ruthie Grace Boutique sent me, over it. I sort of love how it looks. Do you think I should keep it? I feel like it is a more unique sweater and I definitely don’t have anything like it. I wish it were a little bit cheaper.
Well, that’s my whole Fix! Thanks for checking it out.
What do you think? Should I keep the dolman? Do you think the sweater is too expensive? I’m so undecided about this Fix. Let me know in the comments, please! I love hearing your opinions.
