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. 🙂

    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.

  • Simple is always better. I tried so hard to figure out what I was going to wear for Easter. I spent a good hour trying things on the week before. I sent my sister tons of pictures asking her thoughts. In the end, I wasn’t really satisfied with any of them for some reason so I decided to just go with an outfit I know I love and feel good in. For some reason wearing white just makes me feel super put together. And I managed to not spill anything on myself or get chocolate on my pants which is a major win y’all. .

We don’t need to overthink things so much. It just causes unnecessary stress. I do like to plan ahead because it saves me time, but I also should have realized sooner that the dress I was trying to make work just wasn’t working. Even though I love that dress, it doesn’t flatter me how I want it to and it might be time to let it go. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that don’t give you exactly what you need. You don’t have to settle, something else will always come along. Or you probably already have something else in your closet (or life, this isn’t limited to clothes!) that’s even better than what you’re trying to make work!
  • Happy Easter 🐰❤️
  • Casual Good Friday ❤️ this was yesterday’s work outfit but I jazzed myself up before we went to church with Jakes mom and stepdad last night. I cried like a baby. Good Friday always both kicks my ass and reminds me how blessed we all are. 
The beautiful KC weather this weekend is so exciting!! I’m so happy when it’s Spring weather 😍 Have a beautiful Saturday!!
  • “There is beauty in simplicity”
My simple wardrobe makes me so happy and I love the seemingly endless possibilities I have with it. Having a love of neutrals really works well for me with this! 
Happy Good Friday ❤️
  • The only things in my life these days are the things I really want there. This isn’t limited to the stuff in my house and the clothes in my closet. This includes my job, relationships, hobbies, everything. I’ve even started eating better as a by-product of simplifying my life and I just feel better over all. .

By removing the things and people that don’t make me happy, I have more time and energy for the things that do that I used to put off and not prioritize like I should have. We spend so much of our lives being “busy”. But what are we busy with? Most of it is actually unimportant when you break it down. .

I say no to things much more now and that allows me to spend more of my time relaxing and enjoying life. I used to constantly feel rushed or like I should be doing something. If I wasn’t moving, I felt like I was wasting my time. But the truth is, resting and just being home with Jake and the boys is my happy place. It brings me so much joy, so that’s what my priority is. .

Having more time to just BE has been amazing. Being more picky in my relationships has helped me really value the ones I hold most dear and has brought me to an amazing new job because I wasn’t willing to settle for anything less. Respect yourself and your time and prioritize the things that matter most to you. Life’s too short to live any other way.
  • “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.” So many wonderful things have happened since I simplified my life. Changing my outlook on life wasn’t really intentional, but I’m so thankful it happened when it did. I was kind of at a breaking point. Fed up with where I was and how things were going with my old job. Struggling with depression and comparison. I knew something had to change but I had no idea what. Simplicity was that thing. .
.
Now, I spend way less time on social media. I deleted Facebook off my phone and haven’t  looked at it in weeks. I’m much happier without it. I read a lot more. I’m getting much better at ignoring the impulse to pick up my phone and when I am on it, to compare my life to the perfect pictures people post. I even cut a few inches off my hair! 💇🏻‍♀️ I want things as easy as they can be right now. It takes a lot of stress out of my life. Try to go a whole weekend without social media and see how awesome it feels!
