Why I Love Stitch Fix + Link Up

Happy Stitch Fix Friday!  Last week I received my January fix, and it's by far my favorite.  I know I said that about my last fix, but my stylist nailed it again with my style, and this one was even better!  Included in my fix was a Rebecca Minkoff ruffle dress, a Bella Dahl off-the-shoulder top, a twist back sweater by Absolutely, a pair of Pistola button front jeans, and Sole Society pom heels.  When I received notification from my stylist that she was putting together my January fix, I decided to email her with some requests, one of which was a pair of high rise, button front jeans.  When I opened my box and saw that a pair was included, they were the first thing I reached for to style.  Lately, I've been leaning towards outfits that are easy and casual, so I decided to pair the jeans with the twist back sweater for a comfy, yet fun, look.  I love how this sweater has a classic feel from the front, and an edgy vibe from the back.   The best part is that it's bra friendly!  I finished my look with my favorite grey booties, and the cutest cross body bag that I got in a previous Stitch Fix shipment.

Those who have been following this blog for a while, know that I'm a big fan of Stitch Fix.  I have been using the personal styling service for a year and a half, and get excited every time my fix arrives on my doorstep.  As a fashion blogger, and shopaholic, I sometimes get asked why I use the service when I'm constantly shopping myself.  It's true that Stitch Fix is the perfect service for those who don't have time, or like, to shop, but I love having the eye of another stylist to introduce me to items and brands that I would otherwise overlook.  Since using Stitch Fix, I have discovered a great (and affordable) denim line, found one of my favorite sweaters, and have added dresses to my wardrobe that I would have never thought to try on.  Whether I'm looking for something trendy, or a classic to last me years to come, I know that I'll find it in my fix.

If you're unfamiliar with Stitch Fixit is a personal styling service where items are picked out based upon your style preferences, and delivered right to your door step.  Upon signing up, you are asked questions about your style, then assigned a stylist who picks out five items per shipment to send you.  You have three days to try on the clothes and decide what you want to keep or send back. This is the best part about the service, since you are able to do this in the comfort of your own home. You simply keep what you want, and send the rest back in the prepaid shipping bag that is provided. There is a styling fee with each box of $20, however, if you decide to purchase items from your box, then the $20 is put towards your purchase.  If you decide to keep all 5 items, then you get a 25% discount! And it's for everyone.  Stitch Fix carries women sizes from XS-3X, men's, petite and maternity!

The best part is Stitch Fix is waiving the styling fee for Threads for Thomas readers! Try the service risk free by clicking here!

Wondering what I kept from this fix?  Well, that I'm still deciding.... I know the Rebecca Minkoff dress is a keeper, but I need to make a decision on the rest this weekend.  Let me know in the comments what you think I should keep.  You can read about my last fix here, and my tips for getting the perfect fix here.

Tweed Blazer + WW Link Up

Did everyone have a great start to 2018?  Who got back into a normal routine?  We're pretty much still in vacation mode in our household.  Between Mike working from home this week, the big snowstorm that we were hit with yesterday, and the fact that we are currently on our way up to Vermont to have our Chrismukkah celebration, we haven't been able to get ourselves back into the swing of things.  I do have to admit that I'm looking forward to starting a healthy routine next week.

If you're looking to freshen up your wardrobe this January, then I highly suggest adding a tweed blazer into the mix.  Not only are tweed blazers classic, but they give off a cool-girl vibe, making them a perfect update to any look.  Plus, most tweed blazers are warm, which is ideal for the winter weather.  I just added this double breasted one to my wardrobe, and can't stop wearing it.  It's classic, fun, and I love how it instantly makes my outfit look polished.  

Although this blazer would work perfectly for an office environment, I decided to give it a casual feel by pairing it with my favorite ripped jeans and sneakers.  Because it's been freezing here in New England, I layered it over a cream sweater, then finished my outfit with my everyday gold necklaces.  I'd say its the perfect laid back, but you mean business, look.

Top 10 from 2017 + How To Shop My Instagram

(This was my most liked photo on Instagram in 2017!)

Happy 2018!  I hope everyone had a great time ringing in the new year.  Friends of mine hosted a small get together, so I spent the first part of the evening with close friends, then was home by 10pm to put the twins to bed.  Mike and I watched the ball drop from the comfort of our couch, which ended up being a perfect evening.

It was brought to my attention this past weekend, that some of my friends and readers are unclear about how to use, and shop the photos that I post to my Instagram.  Because of this,  I thought that I would start the new year by giving a simple tutorial on how to shop my posts, and share my top 10 Instagram posts from 2017.

There are several ways you can shop my Instagram photos:

1. With  First download the APP (available from the APP store).  Once you have an account set up, anytime you screenshot a photo, it will instantly be available in the APP.  Another way is to follow me @thomasrachael in the APP.  That way you can shop my daily looks at any time, all in one place!

2. The second way is to use the direct ink in my Instagram post.  Copy and paste the link into your browser, and it will take you right to the photo where I have all items liked via

3. I know some of you don't like to use, and that's not a problem!  I've made shopping my Instagram easy, without having to sign up for the service or use the APP.  Simply visit Threads for Thomas, and click on the Shop My Instagram tab in the menu bar.  This is where you will find all my latest Instagram outfit post.  Simply click on the outfit you would like details for, and they'll all be listed with links for you to shop!
I've also made it easy if you're coming right from the Instagram APP.  Click the link in my Instagram profile, then click on Shop My Instagram.  That will take you directly to the page where my outfits are all listed.  Again, click on the photo with the outfit that you would like details for, and they'll all be listed with links to shop.

If you have any questions about a product, fit, or just in general how to shop, please let me know.  You can email me, or send me a direct message on Instagram.  Also, I love hearing your feedback on any of the products that you purchase for yourself!  When you use my links, I do make a small commission, which makes this blog possible.  So thank you for shopping through me, as your support means the world!  

Here are the rest of my top 10 Instagram photos from 2017

I would love for you to follow along on Instagram, as I post my everyday looks that don't always make it to the blog (@thomasrachael).  Wishing everyone a healthy and joyful 2018!
