A cat lover, mom of three and brand development director at Stitch Fix (the online personal styling service), Maria Dueñas Jacobs truly does it
all—including wear our striped ruffle shirt three ways.


Walking to the office from her Tribeca apartment

“I’m a serious stripe aficionado—I have a never-ending collection of striped shirts, and this one is a great addition because the ruffles set it apart. I love that the matching skirt gives the illusion of a dress, but that each piece can also be worn on its own.”

Maria gets ready for work with some help from her daughter Luna.

Luna wears our girls' side-tie shirtdress in mixed stripes.

“My advice to moms on the go? Create a uniform of sorts. If you know you feel great in a particular silhouette, then stick with it and try different colors and prints.”

“The top is quite a statement, so pairing it with a solid pair of shorts is an easy combination. It’s perfect for a day running around with my girls.”

Her three girls play together. From left to right: Luna (age three) in our girls' ruffle Liberty®-print dress and twins Isa and Silvi (age 16 months).

“I love high-waisted pants and statement earrings, and I prefer to walk everywhere—so finding outfits that I can pair with sneakers is always a plus!”

“Motherhood definitely helped me define my style. Comfort and ease play a big role when I’m deciding what to wear. I like to look like I just threw this on (even though I actually thought about it).”
