Yesterday I posted about my disappointment with Stitch Fix #7, where I’d specifically asked for clothes for an upcoming trip to Alaska.
The Fix just really missed the mark, and ultimately everything got sent back before I could chicken out, change my mind and buy something I didn’t really need/want/like.
To be fair I already have more than my share of winter-y clothes that would be right at home in Alaska, with the possible exception of things to wear to dinner, especially on the more formal nights.
Yesterday I also opined that I would have loved to have received a cold weather dress in the Fix.

I envision this styled exactly as above: funky glasses, boots, dress.
The main thing I worry about with this brand – known mostly for its kids’ clothing – is that the dress is just too mom-ish (read: frumpy) in real life.
Boden has a cute contender, also featuring exposed zippers:

Again, the Frump Factor is hard to discern online.
This Maison Jules dress is currently on super sale, but it’s probably not realistic for cold nights given the sleeveless style:
While not striped, this Madewell dark blue dress seems to get what I’m going for:
Here’s what it looks like on the model:
