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!

  • Enjoying a wonderful long weekend trip to Wisconsin visiting Jake’s older brother and enjoying allll the cheese curds 🧀
. 
I’m working on limiting my social media activity and only taking one picture to capture a moment instead of 30 trying to get them perfect. It’s been a nice side effect of minimalism and it’s helping me learn to not be so concerned with what others think, stop playing the comparison game, and live in the moment. I’m much more relaxed and happy without all the unnecessary drama and stress of the world. Definitely recommend trying it out if you struggle with anxiety like I do ❤️
  • I’m not a big selfie person so here’s one with my little ham to make it better while I show you my new hair🤳🏻
. 💇🏻‍♀️ I’ve cut off 8+ inches of my hair since my wedding. This last cut over the weekend was the big finale, an additional 4 inches off. Doing it slowly made it less of a shock and helped me confirm it was really what I wanted. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was 5!! My mom used to cut it and gave me a mullet once sooo I’ve kept it long ever since 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ My sister @juliestanbridge loooves to tell that story to anyone that’ll listen. I was definitely ready for a change and I’m thrilled with this length. .

I’m really enjoying the simplicity of less makeup and less hair care lately 😌 it takes me 15 minutes to wake up and get ready every morning, including making coffee and my lunch! I feel more beautiful in my own skin which has been a life long struggle, laugh lines and all. This simple life is more than I ever expected in so many ways and keeps getting better as I go. How could your life be better with less?
  • Today is a happy excuse to share some wedding photos ❤️ .

I’d be so lost without my mom and sister. I’m so blessed to have such a close relationship with them both. It wasn’t always this way but I’m glad that as I grew up, I realized how much I needed them both. They’re my rocks. .

I’m thankful for my mother-in-law because she’s accepted me wholeheartedly into the family and she raised my amazing husband and taught him how to treat me. Not everyone is so lucky to actually love their in-laws so I really appreciate this and don’t take it for granted!
.

I’m thankful for my Godmother, Kim, my best friend Courtney’s momma who is literally like a second mom to me and I love her whole family dearly ❤️ they’re a constant blessing. .

And Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there like me who hold their babies in their hearts instead of their arms 👼🏻 You are celebrated today, too! #happymothersday
  • Getting rid of the extra stuff in our house we never used has been the best way of keeping it clean and organized. Everything has a place. There are still pictures on the walls and decor items on the shelves, but I don’t feel the need to have EVERY INCH decorated like I used to. It’s nice to have more open space, it looks and feels bigger! .

I always thought I was disorganized, but the truth is I just had too much stuff. Because let’s be real, if organizing your stuff actually worked, wouldn’t you be done by now?
  • Happy Saturday ❤️ I’ve been super inspired to write lately so I’m working on multiple blog posts. It feels so good to write again.
.

When I started talking about minimalism instead of fashion, my engagement dropped dramatically. Like, 70% probably. It was pretty upsetting in the beginning, not gonna lie. .

But likes and comments and followers aren’t what matter. The people that followed me before followed me for something I’m not talking about anymore, so that change is really ok with me. I’m appealing to a new audience now and I love that. I want to provide value to you guys, it’s the only thing that motivates me. I don’t post just to post anymore. I just had to realize that the people that are left still want to hear what I have to say, so I keep going for you! Thank you for being here ❤️
  • I’ve really been enjoying my time away from social media, but I also still enjoy mindlessly scrolling through pretty pictures sometimes. Life is all about balance. I see a lot of my fellow bloggers also struggle with the balance of creating a successful page and knowing when to give ourselves a break. It can be overwhelming! .

I put up a new blog post today about why I decided to give up on my shopping ban and instead focus on a LOW buy year and not a NO buy year. The main reason is it makes more sense for my life because things have come up and I don’t want to guilt myself into not buying something if it will make my life a bit easier. Minimalism is not about deprivation, it’s about intentionality. You can see the post at DaniThom.com via the link in my bio ❤️
