The Zella Galaxy Fleece Hoodie Is Out of This World

Wearing the Zella Galaxy Fleece Hoodie…also known as “The Best Damn Sweatshirt, Ever!”

Generally, I won’t consider interstellar travel when shopping for sweatshirts and other winter wear (like I will for a killer pair of shoes), but I’d rocket to the farthest reaches of the galaxy for the $58 Zella Galaxy Fleece Hoodie. I like it that much.

From Zella, Nordstrom’s in-house line of “slightly more affordable than Lululemon” workout clothes, the Galaxy zips up in the front, has a drawstring hood, and comes in six colors and sizes ranging from X-small to X-large.

Now, I don’t usually get this fired up about hoodies, but the Galaxy is RAD! Even Tabs, who’s infamous for his fashion snobbery, is obsessed with it, and not only because the black and gray patterned one conceals his fur (it could be covered in tabby fur, and I wouldn’t even know).

Pet-based decisionsSIDE NOTE: you know you’ve reached a higher level of cat lady consciousness when your wardrobe decisions start revolving around your pet.

It’s just so totally toasty. It’s made of fleece, but like, SUPER fleece, SUPER fleece, she’s super fleece-ay, oww! (Temptations, sing!)

Sorry! Musical moment…

Whenever I leave the Galaxy on the bed, Tabs wrap himself up in it, kitty burrito style, and refuses to get out.

So it doubles as a cat bed, which is also cool.

And beyond being one of the warmest, coziest pieces in my wardrobe, it’s riddled with attentive details. Things like…

  • Thumb holes in the cuffs to keep your paws warm and your fingers free (like fingerless gloves). So great when I’m out and about and need to use my phone’s touchscreen.
  • Fully zipped up, the Galaxy Hoodie goes all the way up to just below my chin, so it keeps the chill out and fully covers my neck.
  • I love the sleek design and curved seams on the front. I think it looks more stylish than the average sweatshirt.
  • The front pockets are deep! — deep enough for my phone, keys, lipgloss and a small bag of cat treats.

Best of all, even though it’s made of pretty thick material, it doesn’t feel heavy or bulky. I can comfortably wear it beneath my favorite jackets without feeling squished or constricted.

If you want a really fitted look, from my experience, Zella’s clothes tend to run big, so if you’re gutsy enough to order online without trying it on, you might want to grab a size smaller than you’d normally wear.

To the three dudes reading right now, I think the Galaxy would be a really great gift for almost any gal, even if she isn’t into workout clothes. It’s warm, comfy and stylish — perfect for running errands this time of year or hanging out around the house.

    “To the three dudes reading right now..” Hahaha, you crack me up Karen. I love hoodies but I don’t wear them enough as I don’t know how to combine a hoodie with a scarf. Luxury problem ๐Ÿ™‚

    This one looks cute though!

  2. Trisha says:

    That looks SO comfy! And cute, too. So, that’s a bonus.

    Living in a state with no Nordie’s (I know, I know- pfft!) leaves me out of the whole instant gratification thing… but that doesn’t mean I’m not obsessed with ’em, too! Now, if only this came in the color “Ragdoll”… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I need more hoodies and fleece in my life… I’m tired of scratchy wool sweaters! This one looks really good, very stylish for a comfy warmish hoodie. Love it!

  9. This looks so cozy, Karen! Do you fit the extra-small? (I think we’re about the same height, but these sleeves don’t actually look too long on you — which hoodie sleeves frequently are, on me :P)

    I’m serious, every time you post about something like this I run out and get it. Nordstrom must love you!! I am an online shopper though, so if you could tell us what size you wear it would help the rest of us figure out what size to get!

  12. Nina says:

    I kinda want it but I cant do fleece – it makes me itch!

  13. Corinne says:
