Stitch Fix Review – July 9, 2018

For this month’s Stitch Fix, I requested something a bit different. I actually meant to skip it, but completely forgot. Since our wedding is in 3 months, all of these things keep popping up! I’m trying to cut costs anywhere I can haha.

When I got the email saying my box was coming, I decided to ask for workout clothes. Affordable items that were pretty neutral and easy to mix and match.

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a HUGE lover of neutrals. I love things that can be paired with multiple different items and styled a variety of ways. Versatile pieces are the best pieces in my opinion!

 

If you’re unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, here’s the rundown:

  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, let’s see what came in this month’s box!

 

Since I am on a tight budget, I told myself I could only keep one piece. But that was more difficult than I expected as I liked everything that came!!

The cross-back tank fit perfectly. Loose but fitted is my ideal style, and I loved the back detail.

The Nike capris were so comfortable and great quality, as you can imagine. I liked the little pocket they had on the leg.

I really would have kept the sports bra, but it was too small :(. I thought about exchanging it, but I thought I have so many sports bras, it’s probably better that I keep a top instead.

The knit top was SO soft and comfy. I really liked how it fit, and I tied it to add a fun detail. It was a hard decision between this and the cross back one.

And lastly, these purple pants. Y’all. They felt like BUTTER. They were so incredibly soft. I didn’t want to take them off. And I loved the cute ruching detail! But being the most expensive item in the box, they were sadly destined to go back.

In the end, I wound up keeping the cross back top as I felt like I’d wear it more often. I really like how it fit and the fun back detail made the decision for me.

If you’re interested in trying Stitch Fix, use my referral code and get your $20 style fee waived for your first box!

Have an awesome Monday!!

XO,

Dani

  • Have you ever been so excited about something that every time you talk to someone who you see could benefit from it, you just want to tell them every single thing about it because you just want to help them? That’s how I feel about minimalism and living with less. It’s changed my life and my mindset in so many ways and all I want to do is tell people about it. But I don’t, unless they ask. 
You can’t force change on people. They have to come to their own conclusions in their own time. They have to have their own inspiration *ah ha!* moments like you had. You can talk until you’re blue in the face, but they won’t HEAR you until they’re ready. The best way to show them how great something is is by being an example! Be the change you wish to see. Maybe you can inspire others with your happiness. Happy Tuesday!

This weekend (and in general, lately) I took a little break from social media. Since I started my new job, this weekend was the first actual weekend Jake and I have spent together since we got back from our honeymoon in October. Crazy, right?! It was wonderful to spend time with family and get stuff done together and just enjoy the time we had. Making time for what’s important is so crucial to your mental health and the health of your relationships! If you’re too busy, remove the things that aren’t actually important and make time for the things that are.
  • Happy St. Patty’s Day 🍀
  • “Stop buying things you can’t afford to impress people you don’t even really like” - @msrachelhollis 
I just started reading “Girl, wash your face” and I have to say, so far, I dig it. The author is very real and relatable and pretty funny. I’ve heard so many great things about it, I had to add it to my reading list. 
This particular quote from the introduction really stuck out to me because it hit home so hard. I used to be that person who spent money I didn’t have to impress others that I didn’t like or didn’t even know. Looking back now I know WHY I did it, but I still wish I had been wise enough to know it was stupid and not at all important. I guess that’s all part of growing up, right? Better late to realizing it than spending my life that way! 
Happy Friday, beautiful 😘
  • Is this week flying by for anyone else? We’re a few days into the Lent season, and I told myself that I would find 40 more things in my home over these 40 days to donate. We’re not even to the halfway point yet, and I’m already more than halfway there.

I have found more clothes, more things from my kitchen, more random hidden items throughout my house like old candles, pet toys, picture frames that I didn’t find in my first go through and I am happy to be getting rid of now. 
It’s crazy how each time I go through my house again I find more things to part with. Things that don’t bring joy or add any value. And you may think that I’m throwing away all of the money that I’ve spent. That’s partially true. But I feel no guilt, because the money is already spent and it no longer adds value so it has to go. It’s not easy to let everything go. I still feel some attachments. But it’s gotten much easier. What are you doing for lent? Do you celebrate or like the idea of it and what it represents?
  • Happiness is Decluttering.
Since embracing the idea of a minimalist lifestyle, more than our closets have changed.
I’ve become a lot more confident and comfortable with myself. I wear less make up, curl my hair less often, and with my capsule wardrobe I put way less effort into what I wear. 
This time last year, I was tanning every week, shopping constantly, only buying name brand makeup, keeping my nails and eyelashes done and trying to be like these girls I see on my Instagram feed. It was EXPENSIVE. I thought their lives looked so glamorous. Now when I see their pictures, I think of all the time, money and space they waste on that stuff, which adds no real value to their lives. People I once envied I now look at the complete opposite...I think what I have is more valuable. Have you ever had any big changes of heart? I’d love to hear about them!
