I used to do Stitch Fix posts where I showed all the items I received in one Fix, but those are so much work and make huge posts, so I decided to just show one piece in a post at a time.
My February Fix was one of the best Fixes I ever received. In that Fix were two dresses, one top, a vest, and a pair of lavender skinny jeans. I LOVED everything in my Fix except the vest, but ended up keeping just the two dresses and top. In this post, I'm wearing the lavender skinny jeans I sent back.
I really loved these pants, and so did my husband. They fit me like a glove and they were super soft and comfortable. BUT they were $100 which was way too much money for a pair of jeans for me; especially in a color I wouldn't wear that often.
I styled the lavender skinny jeans with a tank top I bought from CJBanks (see another way I styled this top HERE).
For outerwear, I picked a black moto jacket (old, Forever 21), and I chose a black back pack bag (old, Kmart), and wore black shoes borrowed from my daughter.
It was so hard for me to send these jeans back. I just loved the color and fit.
For jewelry, I went with silver. I chose an elephant pendant necklace from Charming Charlies and some silver bracelets I picked up on our vacation to Missouri last fall.
My husband, who is my photographer, wanted me to try this outfit with a leather moto hat. A little edgy for me, but fun!
So what do you think? Did I make a mistake sending these pants back or would you have done the same thing because of the cost and color? I'd love to hear from you!

This is my favorite colour for ss18 ans they look fab on you Amy.ReplyDelete
Thanks Laurie, I was so happy lavender is Pantone's Color of the Year. I think it's a gorgeous color.Delete
Such cute jeans and they really do fit you well! I know what you mean though, $100 is a lot especially for a pair that isn't a regular color.ReplyDelete

Thank you, yes, if they were half that cost, I would have kept them!Delete

Thanks Lee! I was in a hurry this morning and didn't see you were co-hosting. I think I'm already following you, but I'll double check. I love lavender! I need to add a lot more to my wardrobe.Delete
Those jeans do look amazing! I would have a hard time paying $100 but also have a hard time sending them back.ReplyDelete
Thank you! That was my dilemma. I was so torn about sending them back.Delete
What a beautiful color and they do look great on you and also loving how they match with the rest of the clothes. But I understand that you ended up sending them back. I'm a blue jeans type of person, so I would not justify spending that much money on different colored jeans either. It is a lot of money for a pair of jeans. Maybe you can find a similar pair for less!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ellie! I so agree! I'm keeping my eyes open for a pair.Delete
Lavender is a trending color right now and they look great on you! However, that is a lot of money to spend on a "trendy" pair of jeans so I totally understand why you sent them back!ReplyDelete
Jeans and a Teacup
Thanks Jessica, yes, it is a lot of money!Delete
I have to say, you take some really good indoor photos!! That is something I haven't really tried, but I should... we have had such rainy and dreary weather lately. I LOVE these lavender colored pants... I wish you had kept them, and I love that top you styled with them. But, gosh... $100?! I can get an amazing pair of jeans at a mall store like, American Eagle for half of that price!! I just ordered a Stitch Fix box that will arrive in April. It's been awhile and I can't wait!ReplyDelete
Thanks Carrie! I never was able to take photos inside until this year. One reason was that got a new camera, but I think the real reason is the room. The lighting is just perfect for indoor photos and the coloring of the room also helps a lot too! Oh, I wish those jeans were cheaper, I would have loved to have kept them!Delete
These jeans are terrific on you, and I agree the price is steep for a trendy color. Love your choice of accessories too, and thanks for linking up, xoReplyDelete
I think you can fin just as nice, similar pants for way less. But I do love them on you especially paired with the teal. I absolutely love all the purple you have been wearing lately, Amy. =)ReplyDelete
P.S. I know you love my poetry so there is a brand-new one on the blog, right now. =)
Thank you! I think that color in a jean will be hard to find, but if I do, I'll definitely snatch it up. I will visit your blog as soon as I can and check out your poetry. I have company over for the next few days.Delete
They are super great jeans. I have a pair from the thrift store that I adore....maybe you can find a less expensive pair???ReplyDelete
Thanks Jodie! Hopefully I can find a cheaper pair.Delete
