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!

  • Comfy casual for errands is my style 👌🏻 also I love this hat because on the days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair, hats are a lifesaver. And dry shampoo 😂. I put a poll up on my stories yesterday asking if you guys want to see a series of posts on #cozyminimalism and the answer was an overwhelming yes! I’ve already started working on them and will start posting next week so stay tuned!! In the mean time, check out my post on 12 ways you’re wasting money on clothes and how to stop. We’re all guilty of it 🤷🏻‍♀️. Click the link in my profile to read!  http://liketk.it/2zSzn #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Fun fact day about my wonderful husband: Jake has this uncanny ability to make me smile and laugh even when I’m sick. I was in bed all weekend but somehow he managed to still make me feel better. 
He is the king of puns and loves to make corny jokes. I’m talking real bad dad jokes. But I think they’re hilarious, and his enthusiasm and the fact that HE finds them so funny is the best part.

It’s the little things like this that showed me he was my perfect person. That and he told me he was going to marry me after 3 weeks of dating 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ which also made my laugh at the time but 9 months later he was down on one knee! 
That was also the same day I tried to break up with him because I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I was starting to like him way too much too soon. I told him I wasn’t ready for another relationship and he literally said “are you trying to break up with me? ...no. We’re gonna get married.” I busted out laughing but he was so serious.
Even then, I could tell he really believed that. Now 4 months into our marriage he still shows me every day he wants to be married to me ❤️👰🏻🤵🏻 We have to appreciate the little things like the bad jokes because the effort behind them is how people say “I love you” in other ways. Happy Monday 💕#marriedlife💍 #marriagegoals
