We are getting to the last few Stitch Fix fixes before BABY comes. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE? Just crazy!
Since we are getting down to the wire here, I was pretty specific with my stylist, Kimberly J., this month on what I was looking for. I am trying to avoid anything that is “too maternity” since I really am not trying to invest in clothing that I’m going to wear for basically a little over a month.
So, my requests in my note to my stylist this month were:
- Tops that could be worn during AND after pregnancy
- Comfort is key! Maybe something that could be worn in the hospital after baby is born?
- Maternity jeans (the reason being… I only have ONE pair of maternity jeans that honestly fit the way I like and I am totally okay with investing in another pair that’s comfortable.)
And, as per usual, Kimberly J. nailed it. Honestly, this was ALMOST a 5/5, keep it all box for me. BUT, I’m trying to be really smart and only purchase things that I know I need, could wear AT LEAST 30 times, and really, REALLY love. Therefore, I didn’t keep it all. Keep reading though to see what I DID decide to keep… 🙂
DISCLAIMER: these pictures were taken on a Sunday afternoon and I have absolutely no makeup on. It was a lazy Sunday and, well, I didn’t care to put any makeup on. Sorry not sorry. 🙂
January Stitch Fix Maternity Review
Stitch Fix Market & Spruce “Lawford Knit Top” – Size XL – $58
I realize that a striped shirt is basically a closet staple and I was thinking I don’t really NEED another striped shirt, but you guys… THIS SHIRT IS AMAZING. I love Market & Spruce – great brand – and this shirt is so, so soft. It’s a very lightweight shirt, but it almost feels like SILK (it’s not…). I really love the faux leather detailing at the collar and I also love that this top is NOT maternity! It just happens to work during AND after pregnancy.
With all that in mind, it was basically a no brainer…
Stitch Fix Maternity Full Moon “Anticia Woven Back Maternity Knit Top” – Size XL – $54 (Made in the USA)
I really, really wanted to love this top because I love the Full Moon brand… but I just… didn’t. It felt too matronly, it was a little too boxy, and a little too maternity for me right now. I don’t need to invest in a tunic like this at this stage of the pregnancy. It is SUPER soft and really comfortable and I think would have been a great maternity piece earlier, but I couldn’t justify it this late.
Mavi “Colette Maternity Skinny Jean” – Size 14 – $98
Kimberly J. NAILED IT with these maternity jeans. I have some non-maternity Mavi jeans and I really love them – in fact, they’re my favorite non-maternity jeans. SO I was excited to try these. Now, in photographs they do look black, but they are actually just a REALLY, REALLY dark dark DARK blue / navy. Which I actually like because they go with a lot and are a great pair of maternity denim to dress up and dress down.
So, these were also a no brainer. They are long, but they cuff really well!
Stitch Fix 41Hawthorn “Berneen Dolman Knit Top” – Size XL – $58 (Made in the USA)
I kept going back and forth on this top. I really liked the print. I liked that it was non-maternity but worked for pregnancy. I liked the comfort of it. I love the 41Hawthorn brand (made in the USA and always cute stuff). But for some reason, I just couldn’t be sold on it. And now, looking back at the pictures, I think I’m regretting sending it back… What do you think? Should I have kept this one?
Stitch Fix Pixley “Dali Open Drape Cardigan” – Size XL – $78
While this cardigan is RIDICULOUSLY soft, super comfy, and really snuggly, I knew pretty much right away I probably wasn’t going to keep it. I don’t need another chunky printed cardigan (I could use some solids!), and I don’t have a whole lot that would go with it. I think it’s really cute, but just not one that I would wear all that often… So, back it went!
So there you have it. My January Stitch Fix maternity review.
Do you agree with what I kept? What I returned? What would you have done? Have you tried Stitch Fix before?
