SuitableYou Review #3

For this SuitableYou box, I told the stylist that I had just gotten a new job and I needed new jeans and some long sleeve tops or sweaters. I was excited to get the box before driving home for Thanksgiving this week, in hopes that I’d get something to take with me.

For anyone unfamiliar with SuitableYou, here’s the rundown:
  • SuitableYou is a company that sends you 5 things at a time based on a style profit you complete. There is a $20 styling fee, and you get that credited toward your total if you buy 3 or more things. You also get a 10% discount if you keep 3-4 items, and a 20% discount if you keep all 5. You try everything on in the comfort of your own home, and send back what you don’t want in a pre-paid shipping envelope.
  • The style profile takes you through your physical features such as height, weight, and body type and then moves on to what your style preferences are. I personally like looser fitting tops with fitted pants. You can also go through color and pattern preferences, jewelry, and shoes. You have the option of receiving a box monthly or every few months. You can skip a month (or more) too, if you want. 
  • I like that the stylist includes a note in the package advising how you can style the things she’s included for you, which can be helpful if they’re different styles than you’re used to.
Now, on to the box!



Lumiere Gabrielle Cross Front Blue Blouse – RETURN

The first thing I tried on from this box was this blouse. I liked the thin almost chiffon like material, and the fact that it was all navy and long sleeved. I almost kept it, but when I went to add it to my closet, I realized I have another shirt veeeery similar to this without the crossing detail, so I decided to send it back. If I didn’t have that shirt, this would have been a keeper because it’s perfect for work and looked great with my jeans.



INA Page Plaid Blazer – RETURN

This blazer was an all over disaster. First off, it’s a medium so it was too big for me. Second, I’m not a fan of this design at all. It made me feel about 70 when I put it on. This was a no-go before I even started, but I have a rule that even if I don’t like it I have to try it on! I’ve been surprised a few times. This was not one. My facial expression does not hide my emotions well lol.



Olive and Oak Blaire Black Cardigan – RETURN

I love black clothes. Anything that’s neutral is typically a win. I already have a nice black cardigan from Express that I love, so I knew I wouldn’t be keeping this one. It was also kind of big in the shoulders, and I wasn’t a huge fan of the ribbing on the shoulders. 



Apricot Nadine Sweater Dress – RETURN

I think the design of this dress is very flattering, but it was not my style. Bodycon style things typically make me uncomfortable as they draw too much attention. I also took a closer picture to show that even though this dress was fitted at the bottom, the top was loose. I also would have nowhere to wear this to, so it had to go back.


FRNCH Lacey Pencil Skirt – RETURN

I liked this skirt for multiple reasons. First, it was a great length. I prefer my skirts to be to my knee as I’m so tall. Second, it fit great and wasn’t too tight. Third, it was very comfortable and stretchy. Four, I love grey. So it would have been an overall win, IF I had somewhere to wear it. But considering I wear jeans every day now, it would just sit in my closet. So sadly, it had to go back. The letter I received from the stylist recommended pairing the shirt and skirt from this box together, hence the second outfit below. It did look good together!



This box didn’t exactly hit the mark, and based on that along with the comparison to my Stitch Fix boxes, I knew going in that this would be my last box from them. They’re typically catered to business professional, and my new job is now on the very casual end of business casual. Out of my three boxes, I did get 2 items that I loved, but I just think this isn’t the box for me. My next adventure will be with Trunk Club, so I’m very excited for that because I LOVE Nordstrom.

Have you tried any box services like SuitableYou, Stitch Fix, or Trunk Club? Let me know your thoughts on them!

  • When it comes to investment pieces, do you have any rules you set before you get something? This cardigan was definitely an investment but it’s one of my favorites and by far the softest thing I own. I do have a few rules for getting an investment piece, though! 
1. I have to be able to style at least 10 ways with things ALREADY in my closet. I can’t get something else in order to make it work. 
2. I have to be able to wear it multiple times a month. Something I know I’ll use over and over. 
3. It has to be comfortable. If I’m gonna spend a pretty penny on it, it needs to not only look good but FEEL good. I hate uncomfortable clothing! 
4. It shouldn’t be an impulse buy. I like to think about my investment pieces for a bit before I buy them. Even though I love affordable style, I invest in good quality things I know I’ll wear often so they last!

Do you have any rules when it comes to buying something you consider an investment piece? Tell me in the comments!

  • As I’ve continued to clean things out after my binge of Tidying Up on @Netflix, I’m really enjoying getting rid of so much. .
The whole idea is to declutter and let go of things that don’t #sparkjoy for us. This dress is one of those things for me. While it was great to wear for Easter last year, it just doesn’t bring me joy anymore so it’s one of the things I’ll be getting rid of! .
I’m going to be selling a bunch of my stuff on danithom.com as well as my other typical ways (join my email list on my blog to get my free e-book on how to sell your clothes for cash!). Swipe to see the full dress (and a baby Oliver!) 💙 And DM me if you’re interested in buying it before I post it!
