Stitch Fix K-Pop Concert Edition

Stitch Fix K-Pop Concert Edition

As we established in my last post, Stitch Fix BTS Concert Edition my daughter and I are going on a road trip to Hamilton, Ontario to see the sensation sweeping the nation, K-Pop band, BTS, this week. What does a grown woman wear to such an event?  I have no idea, this is why I turned to my stylist at Stitch Fix for help.

BTS Love Yourself

It’s been awhile since I posted a review of one of my Fixes, mostly because I’ve been busy, but also because I had some dud Fixes and was not really excited to share them.  That all changed when Stephanie came into my life.  She is the stylist assigned to my case after I had two 0 for 5 fixes in a row, and she is amazing.  So when I put out the bat signal for help with what to wear to this concert, I was fairly confident she would know what to do. Like any great super-hero, she came through in a crisis.  Let’s take a look at the outfit she put together.

BTS Concert Outfit

Let’s start with the jacket because it is amazing.  The front is a butter-soft leather, but what you can’t see is that the back is a light weight stretchy material so it molds to your body and moves with you.  I didn’t think Stitch Fix could send a cuter jacket than the one in Piper’s fix.  I might have been wrong.

Let’s talk about this blouse.  That color, Gorgeous!  I am a total sucker for rich burgundy tones so this one made my heart sing.  The cut is perfect, the cute side-tie keeps it from being too long and looking like a smock. It also allows you to leave it un-tucked, because frankly who wants to deal with a tucked=in shirt at a concert? No-one, that’s who.

The jeans fit perfectly and have a dark rinse color that goes with everything.  They are also a great length, so often skinny jeans are either too short, and your ankles are exposed, or too long and you have a big puddle of fabric around your ankles.  Finally, I am not really a jewelry person, but this necklace adds that little bit of flair that makes this an outfit.  I love it.

The other awesome top she sent for my consideration was this beautiful cobalt blue, crochet detail blouse. I don’t think the neckline of this one goes as well with the jacket as the other top, but otherwise, I really like everything about it.

What a great color.  Oddly enough this is not a color I wear a lot, but whenever I do people compliment me on it, which I of course respond awkwardly to because, as we have established, I got no style game.  In fact, I wore this blouse to work yesterday and 3 people commented on the color, so there you go, another win.

Ever heard of the band BTS? No? You must be over 21, because apparently everyone under that age has.  I am told they are the most popular band, IN THE WORLD, by my 15 year-old daughter and we are going to see them in concert this week.  She is beyond excited, and requested her Stitch Fix stylist create a look for her to wear.

BTS is a K-Pop band that Piper has been obsessed with for quite a while now. When their North American tour tickets when on sale she sat at the computer furiously pressing refresh trying to get tickets. When the Chicago tickets sold out, she switched her focus to Hamilton, Ontario and scored two tickets.  She has been working off the cost all summer.

With the concert date rapidly approaching she requested a special BTS Fix for the occasion.  Let’s take a look at what she got. Here is look #1.

These soft stretchy jeans are the staple of this Fix. They are a dark finish with a frayed hem.  A great basic, that fit well and are actually pretty reasonably priced.

The cold-shoulder shirt is perfect for a concert.  It is loose fitting, slightly low-cut, with 3/4 sleeves that expose the shoulders.  The fabric is soft, stretchy and lightweight. Really Nice.

Finally, this flannel cardigan is just cool.  It is duster length, has a frayed edge and a cute, lace-up detail on the back.

The box also included this blue chambray shirt.  It fit well, but didn’t really bring much to the party in terms of excitement.

Finally, the best (and most expensive) piece was this plum-colored denim moto jacket by Liverpool.  Oh my goodness, is it gorgeous.  This jacket is definitely the superstar of the box.

So which outfit is she going to wear?  Well, she is determined to wear her BTS Love Yourself T-shirt, so it looks like the jeans and the denim jacket are the winner, although that flannel duster is pretty sweet.

Since she only has a $100 budget, we negotiated a deal for shared custody of the denim jacket.  I paid half of the jacket cost, she had a credit on her account which allowed her to purchase the jeans and the flannel.   The two shirts went back.

I also requested a BTS Fix and my new stylist, Stephanie, knocked it out of the park.  I will post on that later, but let’s just say if Stephanie lived close to me we would be best friends and I would be broke. Stylish AF, but also broke.
