If you don't know what Stitch Fix is, check out my intro post. Here's my past fixes (that I've put up on this blog):
In case you're wondering why my title is between two months, it's because I received this Stitch Fix a couple days ago. I have a monthly subscription, but they like my shipments to arrive on Thursdays, which means they come in just under a month.
I guess that just makes this month extra special. :)
So, for my end of the month Stitch Fix, I received:
Queensland Dolman Jersey Top:
Also, I love wearing darker colors in winter. I know a lot of people like to "brighten" their mood by wearing brighter colors, but me... I'm all about seasons. I love winter. Even though it's frigid outside and New England was hit by major snowstorms recently, I think winter is one of the most beautiful seasons. Unlike the frenetic energy of reproducing and growing in the spring and summer, winter is when the world outside slows down to sleep. Winter is when the world becomes peaceful... all wrapped in a sparkling layer of ice. It may be a cruel beauty, but I can enjoy it inside, cuddled under a blanket and sipping hot cocoa.
So yes, I like celebrating winter and its darker colors. Winter is, imho, one of the most under appreciated seasons.
Farrow Lace Panel Top:
However, fellow Stitch Fixers, this is not a sweater. It's a thin fabric, and you'll have to wear something underneath. I don't mind this, since New England reacts to cold weather by cranking up the heating way too much. In fact, I asked Stitch Fix for help in dealing with the temperature extremes between the cold outside air and overly heated building interiors. This is a really nice base layer for that purpose.
And the details are just gorgeous...

Moni Stud Detailed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse:
You can also make this work for work.
Maureen Twisted Seam Elbow Patch Sweater:
This was the only piece in my box that I was unsure of, but I ended up keeping this to get the 25% discount. Don't worry though. It'll get worn!
Tina Checkered Infinity Scarf:
I love the plaid, I love the colors, and I love infinity scarves. This one was mine as soon as I took it out of the box.
Wow Stitch Fix! Once again, I'm keeping the whole box. My stylist seems to know my style, even though I'm not sure I had a style before I started Stitch Fix. After a year of providing feedback and pinning things on my Pinterest board, Stitch Fix has helped me find my personal image as well as some great pieces. And that's a gift I can take shopping with me!
