Technically this review I’m sharing with you guys today was my September Stitch Fix review… I just happen to be sharing it in October. I didn’t get a chance to share it before now… so… sue me? Haha, in fact, my October Stitch Fix is scheduled to arrive at my doorstep today. Woops. 🙂
It has been POURING RAIN here for what feels like a month… and as much as I wanted to take pictures of all my pieces outside, it just wasn’t going to happen in the time frame that I needed to take the pictures in. So, I took the pictures inside… old school style in front of the mirror. Sorry not sorry?
But, as usual, I will share with you guys what I got in my Stitch Fix box, what I think, quality, size, price, and I will denote if it’s made in the USA or fair trade (I have noted on my Stitch Fix style profile account to send as many Made in the USA / fair trade products as possible. :))
Check it out:
I have had my eye on this jacket for a long time. I’ve wanted some type of light, utility, cargo jacket for awhile, but could never find the right one. I had this one pinned on my Stitch Fix inspiration board and I was so excited when my stylist included it in my fix this month!
I tried it on and immediately loved it. At first I thought it might be a little big, but I rolled up the sleeves and that helped. Plus, I actually like my coats to be a hair on the larger size so I can fit layers on underneath like sweaters, sweatshirts, etc.
A note about the awesome customer service Stitch Fix has… When I was going to hang the jacket up in my closet, the zipper popped right off. It was broken beyond repair… I was SO bummed. I emailed Stitch Fix and they immediately sent me a replacement for the coat! I sent back the broken one and I had a new one within two days. WOOHOO!
I really WANTED to like this top. It’s made in the USA (win!), it’s super comfortable and soft (win!), I felt like it fit well (win!), but, for some reason… I just didn’t LOVE it. I couldn’t see myself wearing it all that much… so, alas, I didn’t keep it.
This shirt was definitely more of a coral color than it looks in the photographs… it photographed much more orange. It was an orangey / coral, if that makes sense.
The pros to this shirt? Soft? Check! Made in the USA? Check! Not my style, though. I actually really don’t like the way cap sleeves look on me – they cut me off in an awkward place on the arms. So, alas, I didn’t keep it.
Next up are these jeans. I have been a HUGE fan of Kut from the Kloth – I’ve gotten a few things from them in past fixes and always love them. I have been wanting a pair of maternity boyfriend jeans and these were fabulous. However, they were HUGE. I mean, MASSIVE on me. I’m quite confused as to the sizing of their maternity pants. I’m solidy a size 14 / 32 in regular (non-maternity) Kut from the Kloth pants… but these were EASILY 1-2 sizes too big.
Too big to even try on to SHOW YOU how big they were… I was swimming in them.
I emailed Stitch Fix customer service to find out what my options were. I was able to exchange them and size down to a size 12 from the size 14 they gave me. The size 12 came and they fit, but honestly, I probably could have done a size 10 because the size 12s are still a hair too big. I think they will fit me a little better later in my pregnancy… we shall see. If they don’t, I will figure something out.
Let me say, sizing issues aside, these jeans are FABULOUS. The quality is great, the wash and cut are flattering… I love them. But, definitely know that the maternity pants from Kut from the Kloth are HUGE and you will definitely need to size down!!
I had the exact same sizing issue with these pants that I had with the other maternity jeans. I really liked them, but honestly decided not to keep them because I have another pair of pants that are pretty similar and I didn’t foresee myself wearing them that much through pregnancy. So, I opted to return them.
However, again, I will say… these pants are GREAT quality, the cut is fabulous, and I loved the color. BUT, be aware that you will need to size down in them at LEAST 1-2 sizes. So keep that in mind! 🙂
