January Stitch Fix Maternity Review

January 13, 2016

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.聽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… 馃檪

DISCLAIMER:聽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. 馃檪

January Stitch Fix Maternity Review

Stitch Fix Market & Spruce “Lawford Knit Top” – Size XL – $58Stitch Fix Market & Spruce "Lawford Knit Top" - Size XL - $58 and Mavi "Colette Maternity Skinny Jean" - Size 14 - $98

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…

Verdict: KEEP!Stitch Fix Market & Spruce "Lawford Knit Top" - Size XL - $58 Stitch Fix Market & Spruce "Lawford Knit Top" - Size XL - $58 and Mavi "Colette Maternity Skinny Jean" - Size 14 - $98

Stitch Fix Maternity Full Moon “Anticia Woven Back Maternity Knit Top” – Size XL – $54 (Made in the USA)

Stitch Fix Maternity Full Moon "Anticia Woven Back Maternity Knit Top" - Size XL - $54 (Made in the USA) & Mavi "Colette Maternity Skinny Jean" - Size 14 - $98

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聽too聽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.

Verdict: Return

Mavi “Colette Maternity Skinny Jean” – Size 14 – $98Stitch Fix Maternity Full Moon "Anticia Woven Back Maternity Knit Top" - Size XL - $54 (Made in the USA) & 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!

Verdict:聽Keep!

Stitch Fix 41Hawthorn “Berneen Dolman Knit Top” – Size XL – $58 (Made in the USA)

Stitch Fix 41Hawthorn "Berneen Dolman Knit Top" - Size XL - $58 (Made in the USA) 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?

Verdict: Return

Stitch Fix Pixley “Dali Open Drape Cardigan” – Size XL – $78Stitch 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聽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!

Verdict: Return

So there you have it. My January Stitch Fix maternity review.聽
