Well I'm in. ALL in. This kimono trend is the best thing that has happened to my summer. I was suspicious at first. You know I love all things southwestern and not really those from the Far East, but when this navy kimono arrived with my Stitch Fix last week, I about fell over. I don't get obsessed easily, but this beauty is just what my summer needs. It is so lightweight and drapey, and it lets me layer (!!!) in the summer without getting hot. This is the warm weather version of my Aztec cardigan that I wear non-stop in the winter (or in the AC). I need to add a few more to my closet ASAP.

...and in case you were wondering. Since my first post about them, I have tried Stitch Fix several more times - mostly because it's kind of fun and also because I have some credit with them. It has been hit or miss. Some fixes have been great and I love all of the items and others - like this last one - I only kept one thing. I think the key is communication with your stylist about exactly what you are looking for and what you like. This last time, I forgot to mention that didn't want any sleeveless tops, so I got a box full of tanks for summer (which makes sense!). If you don't have time to shop, don't enjoy shopping, or have a hard time knowing what to buy, I think it's a great service. (If you can afford it.)

Have you tried the kimono trend? Thoughts?

  6. This might be the most gorgeous Kimino I've seen yet. I know it's from stitch fix but does it have a brand name in it!?

  7. I love this outfit! Would you mind sharing the brand of the jeans? I love the wash and the fraying at the bottom.
