Stitch Fix Review - February 2019
It’s Hygge Month here at Costume Parade!
I asked my Stitch Fix stylist to send me some Hygge-on-the-sly pieces: items that feel cozy and comfy, but still look snazzy.

Let’s get to it!
ITEM #1: VINCE Boatneck Cashmere Sweater
THOUGHTS: This sweater is sofffffttttt. (It is cashmere, so no surprise there.) That butterscotch color is unique, but I struggled getting it to flatter me and, at $278, it’s way, way, way out of my sweater budget.
ITEM #2: LAUREN RALPH LAUREN Jamelko Button Down Top
THOUGHTS: This didn’t fit me correctly anywhere. It was droopy in the shoulders, and a bit strained around the midsection.
ITEM #3: VERO MODA Sabados Fuzzy Chenille Crewneck Pullover
THOUGHTS: Oh, this sweater wasn’t my friend. It had no give in the material and, though it looks like it should be, it wasn’t soft. The off-white fuzzy chenille on top looked dirty next to the stark white of the rest of the sweater. The bands around the stomach did not flatter me, either. Definitely not a hygge-win.
ITEM #4: LAILA JAYDE Quavo Ribbed Faux Suede Trim Button Knit Top
THOUGHTS: When it comes to softness and stretchiness, this top had neither. It was not comfortable, and I didn’t care for the faux suede detailing around the collar.
ITEM #5: BAGATELLE Trulee Faux Fur Vest
THOUGHTS: This faux fur vest cracked me up. I felt like an extra on the set of Game Of Thrones. While it was cozier than most of the pieces, it’s not my style. I’ll stick to my purple faux fur jacket from my fortune teller fix.
