My Outfit Monday: Embracing weekend casual with Stitch Fix
Stitch Fix is spreading through the Times like a plague that steals your money (many thanks to awareness from Diva Lydia and intense pushing by converted Diva Lisa). I am the latest, and I don't think the last, diva to fall for the online styling service, the one where you pay a $20 styling fee and receive five items in a box that are yours to buy or return.
I didn't come to this decision rashly; I mulled it over during the two-plus years since I first blogged about it.
I know it's insanely addictive and luxurious, so I promise I am watching it, okay?
Exhibit A: I only bought one item from my first Fix. We call that restraint, kids.
It's the pink-striped fancy tee you see above. My wardrobe is predominantly work blouses and cocktail dresses, so I really appreciated the nudge from SF to invest in fun dressed-down looks, too.
I'm wearing the top here on a recent Saturday featuring Michelle's engagement party plus my husband's birthday party. I had only opened the box, like, two hours before.
I paired it with lighter denim jeans (need boyfriend jeans, but Stitch Fix sent me dark denim skinnies -- sent 'em back) with copper brown accents. The cute bag is from a boutique in my tiny hometown of Madison, Fla., (thanks, Mom!) called Penelope's. My jacket is a CLUTCH wardrobe staple from now-closed Piperlime.
Sparkly flats are from DSW — they were a very $en$ible party shoe option repurposed from my wedding reception in June.
It all came together for a nice evening at the brewery, no?
