Pretty Fix – The February List

Pretty Fix February2 The Pretty Fix is a monthly feature at Get Your Pretty On that features my top five picks for the month that you can shop for on your own to stay in style…all at a price you’ll love. The idea for it was born out of frustration that some of you have had with other monthly box services that you feel “miss the mark” or are too pricey.

Each month, the Pretty Fix includes five affordable items that I personally recommend to stay on trend. This month features pieces to create a cute, casual Valentine’s outfit that’s a little bit French and a wee bit nautical.

Oh and the best part?  This is one of my most budget friendly fixes ever coming in at just under $68 total!

Consider me your budget-minded personal shopper. Here’s your February Pretty Fix.

1. Red Lipstick for All – $9

Don’t think red lipstick is for you?  Think again!  L’Oreal Paris has come up with shades of red that are perfect for everyone.  Their Colour Riche Collection of Exclusive Reds includes shades that match up with the coloring of some of our favorite glamorous celebrities like Blake Lively, Julianne Moore, Eva Mendes, Zoe Saldana and Frieda Pinto.  There’s sure to be a shade that works for you too.  (Psst, February is the perfect month to add one to your pout.)

2. Cozy Striped Cardi – $14

I have a cardigan similar to this and am amazed at how it transforms a simple t-shirt and jeans into something special.  Just add bright flats and your outfit is done!  P.S.  The original cardi is now sold out but check out these three options: option one, option two, option three.

3. Cashmere Feel Scarf – $12.90

So soft and warm, this cashmere feel scarf in crimson red is like a Valentine’s Day hug for your neck.

4. Skinny Jeans for a Steal – $7.80

These super cheap skinny jeans from Forever 21 have been a closet staple of mine for many years.  I buy a couple of pairs a year and wear them out.  They wear well, have incredible stretch and actually fit.  Don’t knock them til you try them.

5. Red Flats with a Dash of Leopard – $24

It’s all about the little details and the leopard lining in these flats makes them feel extra special.

    Found a striped cardi here in Canada at Joe Fresh online…ordered it right away 🙂
    Thanks, Alison!

    • I can’t wait to see it Taryn! I’m going to look that up too.

  • Nicole

    What color shirt are you wearing under the cardigan? Just curious. Way cute outfit!!

    • Hi Nicole! You could do a navy t-shirt or tank under it.

  • Angela

    Great ideas! Can you give a tip on where to get the cardigan? The link you posted shows “Unavailable”. Searched some, but no luck. Would love your help 🙂


  • Thank you for this fix! I already have a long sleeve tee in the same pattern which gets lots of complements–I bought it thinking you would approve! I just ordered the flats. I’ve been meaning to replace my tired flats, but just haven’t found anything really cute and budget friendly. Thanks for the recommendation!

    • Yay! 🙂 Enjoy the flats Emily. I love the long sleeve tee. It’s a wardrobe staple.

  • Erin

    So sad the cardi is already sold out…also the skinny jeans link just takes you to a long page of items- are they still available? Thanks!! I can’t wait every month for the Pretty Fix, especially in between challenges!!

    Thanks!! Erin

  • Nancy F.

    If you find one, could you post a link to a similar cardi? The link posted is a t-shirt, not a cardigan, and it does not have very good reviews on amazon.

    • Thanks for the feedback Nancy! We’ve added in some other links since the original cardi sold out.

      • Nancy F.

        Thank you, those are great options!!

  • Kirby

    I love your blog. Thanks for the fun (and inexpensive!!) ideas!

    • Thank you for stopping by Kirby!

  • I love this entire outfit because it is so my style. And I can actually see myself wearing this all the time. Thank you for sharing! Love your blog!

    • I am happy you stopped by Maria. I would love to see a photo of you in one of the Pretty Fix features.

  • Those red touches will never go out of style – Have a great weekend!


    • I agree Rebecca! How are you?!

  • Litsa

    HAs anyone ordered the cardigan with the patches on amazon? The reviews are mixed and not sure on the size

    • Hi Litsa, I would personally look at the size chart and order based on there. If it doesn’t work when you get it, Amazon is wonderful about returns.
