Stitch Fix Review – May 14, 2018

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday! I got to Skype with my mom and sister in the morning to exchange gifts and then spent the day with Jake’s family. It was a wonderful day. Everyone got to meet Finn for the first time and of course loved him. We gave both him and Oliver a bath so they were nice and clean and extra fluffy. Turn up the cuteness factor a few notches.

From this month’s Stitch Fix, I got some fun Spring pieces. I am so happy that it finally feels like Spring out. Actually, it kind of skipped Spring in KC and went straight to Summer as it hasn’t been below 80 in a week haha. But I love warm weather so that is fine with me!

If you’re unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, here’s how it works:

  1. Create a FREE style profile at StitchFix.com.

This is the fun part! It’s simple and doesn’t cost a thing. Just give them an idea of your body type and what you like to wear. Upload links for your Pinterest page to give your stylist some inspiration!

  1. When you are ready, schedule your first fix.

After you complete the profile, you can set up a time to have your fix shipped out. Your personal stylist will hand-pick out 5 items just for you based on what you said in your style profile. There’s a $20 styling fee, which is applied toward whatever you keep from your fix! There’s no monthly subscription fee, and shipping is free both ways!

  1. Try on your hand-picked clothes.

The best part! You can try on your fix clothes with what you already have in your closet and see how things work together. You have 4 business days to try them on and decide what to keep. You can even extend that if you need more time!

  1. Check out online.

You can check out on your computer, or through the handy app. You leave feedback for each item for your stylist and let her know your thoughts so the next fix can be even better. You’ll see the $20 styling fee applied to your items here. If you keep all 5, you get a 25% discount on top of that!

  1. Return what you didn’t love.

Didn’t love all of it? Place any unwanted items into the pre-addressed envelope that came with your fix, and drop it in the mail. It’s that easy (and free)!

  1. Schedule your next fix!

You can schedule you next fix any time. You’re not obligated to have one every month. You can request items for special events like a wedding or vacation, get new things every season, or get them as often as every 2-3 weeks! I personally like to receive mine every 3 weeks, just because it’s something fun to look forward to.

 

Now, here’s what I got in this month’s box:

Vixbe Thompkins Tie Front Top – $42

 

Lila Ryan Liza Distressed Skinny Jean – $98

 SHOP THE LOOK:

T-Shirt & Jeans Kaylin Crossbody Bag – $38

 

Market & Spruce Brooklyn Dress – $68

SHOP THE LOOK:

Tahari Dance Perforated Three Strap Sandal – $79 (found them for $45!)

 

This box was full of Spring colors. The jeans were probably my favorite thing from this box. They are super stretchy and comfortable and hit at a great part of my ankle. I cuffed them for detail but still liked where they hit other wise.

The only reason I would ever wish to be shorter would be so that more dresses hit me at a length I liked. Shift dresses in general don’t look great on me as they completely take away my shape. I have pretty wide hips for how thin I am so this was pretty snug in that area but loose everywhere else. I do love the scallop detail on the bottom and the back! It’s a great dress for summer.

The top wasn’t my style. It’s a bit more of a crop top style. I did like the tie detail but thick vertical stripes don’t do much for me. I really loved the color and style of the purse but it felt a bit flimsy to me. I didn’t think it would last long with the wear and tear that purses take. That’s one piece I will always invest more in because I really use my purses every day so I want them to last.

Finally, the sandals were also not my style, but I know a few people who would love them. They were a very pretty color, but not something I’d ever wear. They did fit well (TTS) but the strappy type of ankle sandals don’t flatter my legs at all haha.

I’m working on a post about how to start a profitable blog that I’m hoping to have up later this week. I can’t believe how fast this month is going by already. It’s crazy! It’s been a great month thus far and every day is one day closer to my wedding so I’m thrilled!!

Have a wonderful Monday 🙂

XO,

Dani

  1. I like these pieces. I keep hearing about Stitch Fix. I really need to try them out. Most of the time I’m in jeans and t-shirts but it might be nice to go for a change now and again.

  3. This sounds like such a great box I love the idea of getting personally picked clothes every month! I may have to give it a whirl myself as I may have a small love for new clothes.

    Wow, you look absolutely stunning in those outfits. I have never heard of stitch fix before, but would definitely look into it. Yes, the months have been going fast for me too — but I don’t have a wedding to anticipate. Good luck with the wedding preparations. 🙂

    Stitch Fix sounds so fun! I think I’d spend way too much money on new clothes though haha.

    Sounds like a good way to get different styles of clothing! Do you get a say in what you would like, or is it all chosen for you?

      It’s a lot of fun! You complete a style profile to tell them what you like and they pick things out for you. You try it all on at home and send back what you don’t like.

  15. Stitch fix does sound like such a fun idea. I will have to show this to my daughter and we will see what we can get. Sorry the dress didn’t work out though. That’s the kind of thing it would be hard to account for when picking styles.

  • 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 ❤️
