My February Fix

Ellie Straight Leg Jean

These jeans sort of give me a good vibe. They remind me a little bit of the bell bottom jeans of the 60s and 70s. Cosmic Blue Love even sounds a little hippie-esh in a really good way. I’m a hippie at heart, and these jeans give me a warm feeling inside.

Here are some great ways to pair these jeans with other items from StitchFix:

Aneesa Cable Knit Asymmetric Hem Pullover

Speaking of warm feelings, this is a beautiful sweater. The photo doesn’t do it justice. Normally, I have a need for symmetry, but I’m making an exception in this case. I can’t wait to wear it.

I have the cute little purse on the right and absolutely love it. When I travel, it makes a great over-body way to keep necessities safe. I like to travel light, so this is perfect.

Perine Pocket Hooded Knit Top

I love a hoodie. Winter Saturdays and Sundays are my hoodie days when I’m just hanging around the house. The pockets are perfect for holding my phone, or any other thing I happen to pick up while moving from room to room. I tease my daughter about her hoodies. She gets cold easily, and frequently I’ll find her sitting in front of the tv with her hood on. She looks so cute. She’s 44, just so you aren’t getting images of a little tot or a teenager.

Ari V Neck Pullover

This sweater is a beautiful shade of blue, and it’s a bit dressier than the two above, in my opinion.

Kaylee Skinny Jean

I love a nice pair of skinny jeans. This would go great with the blue sweater above.

My January Fix

Soll Mixed Material Top

My January fix arrived this morning. This month, I selected a shirt, a jacket, two pairs of jean, and some sneakers. They did not disappoint. The Kaileigh top (above) is so soft and comfy. It will go great with the TOMS sneakers and denim jacket below. Thanks to my prior fixes, I already have a selection of purses and jewelry to match.

Cabrillo Canvas Lace Up Sneaker

I don’t know how they do it, but StitchFix always sends me shoes that fit perfectly. It’s amazing how they do that, because if I go to the store to buy my own shoes I’m not nearly as successful with getting comfort, beauty, and trend as getting the ones StitchFix sends me. My arches need a little extra support on the inside, and these sneakers provide that. I wore them around the house this morning, and they were great. No need to even break them in. These shoes have a bit of a suede look and feel, and they are a bit dressier than my other sneakers.

Jeri Skinny Distressed Jean

A funny story…My son called me one day and asked if I owned any jeans with holes in them. I said that I did. He said when he and his girlfriend had spent the prior weekend at our house he had taken my jeans home with them because he thought they belonged to his girlfriend. He said, “They’re trendy jeans. I thought they were hers.” I guess he didn’t think I could be trendy. He must not pay attention to what I wear.

The jeans I’m wearing right now are practically shredded across the front upper thighs. I love them. One time, I wore them to a baseball game. Two women sitting a couple of rows in front of us kept looking back at my jeans with disapproving glances, and they were obviously talking about me. I have no idea what that was about. Maybe they thought a woman my age shouldn’t be wearing jeans with this many holes in them. They must not have enough fun in their lives. There was this one time that I went to a different baseball game, and there was a lady sitting in front of us who was wearing a completely shear black shirt with nothing under it. I talked about her…and look at me still talking about her here. She probably thought I didn’t’ have enough fun in my life. I’m sure at the time she would have been right about that, but times change and I’m plenty fun now.

Adelene Girlfriend Jean

Of course, I also like to have jeans without holes in case I’m going somewhere that holes would be less appropriate. I’m not sure where that would be, but just in case. They didn’t used to let us wear jeans with holes to the office, but I telecommute full time now.

Kolten Denim Jacket

I’ve never owned a denim jacket before, so I thought I’d give this one a shot. Every one I’ve tried on in the past had no give, and it was hard to move my arms around. This jacket has some stretchiness, and it’s comfy. I hung it by the front door so I can wear it the next time I go out.

I’m going to see George Lopez next week, so maybe I’ll wear some of these pieces. With COVID raging like it is right now, I could possibly end up not going, but if I do go I’ll probably incorporate the denim jacket for sure.

Clothes – Another Guilty Pleasure

Six years ago, one of my coworkers came to work wearing a really cute dress. When I complimented her on the dress, she told me she got it from StitchFix. I signed up for a subscription the same day, and I’ve been receiving five clothing/jewelry/shoes/purses/scarves items monthly ever since. You fill out a profile with your sizes, shape, likes, and dislikes. What amazes me is how they send me shoes that have fit perfectly 100% of the time. You can also select the frequency you would like to receive a box, and you can request special items for a date or event that’s coming up.

Okay, yeah, I know that’s a lot of clothes. So? When you receive your five items, you can keep all of them, a few, or none. You just send back anything you don’t want in the enclosed return package. If you keep everything, you get a 25% discount.

I received the above sweater in my last package. The picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s a long sweater that hits about mid-thigh. It’s warm, cozy, and stylish.

I whole-heartedly recommend StitchFix. I love that no matter what kind of occasion comes up I can find just the right thing in my closet.
