my stitch fix review (maternity edition)

IMG_5460

It’s here! I was so excited to receive this Stitch Fix so super early–it was supposed to be here by July 2nd, but shipped on June 27th. Always a great sign when trying out a new service.

And because I’m a nerd and I’m a sucker for aesthetics, here are pictures of exactly how the box arrived to me. It also answers some questions y’all might have about how the system works.

This element of personal touch really meant a lot to me. There’s a space for you to put all of your social media information if you choose to do so. I did, not really knowing for what it was going to be used. Turns out, my stylist used it to be able to see me and what my style usually is! I love that attention to detail. I also love how she spelled out for me how to use the pieces together. I need that kind of direction.

And for different pieces, there were these style cards–definitely something I appreciated! IMG_5464 IMG_5465

Here’s look number one, with the Rene C crochet top and the Dev Maxi Skirt.  IMG_5469 And here it is with the added Alan French Terry Zip Cardigan. IMG_5470 I honestly really liked the skirt and the top, but I especially LOVED the cardigan. The only difficult thing is that the cardi and top were both larges, since I told my stylist I usually wear mediums, but I’m measuring 2 weeks ahead with this pregancy, so I think she was trying to accommodate for that. While I appreciate that, these pieces were too expensive for me not to LOVE them right away, and for them not to be the right size for post-partum (I go back to medium pretty quickly, typically). The cardigan was my absolute favorite, but at $74.00 (it would be $54.00 with my $20.00 styling fee applied), it would definitely be a splurge right now (read: something we cannot afford).

The next piece was the Gili Braided Maxi Dress, also in large.

From the get-go, it was also too big. I’m in the process of emailing Stitch Fix to see if they can exchange it for a medium, since I feel like this would be a great dress for the baby shower and post-partum. You can check out Stitch Fix’s return and exchange policy here, since it was something I had to search for initially. The last piece was a necklace, that I absolutely adore. Kris Nation’s California Necklace. IMG_5474 The only problem with this is again, price ($42.00, $22.00 with styling fee applied) and also practicality. I religiously wear my family necklace, and rarely ever change it out for another one.

I was VERY satisfied with Stitch Fix, and because of some of the horror stories I had read about pregnant women attempting a box and being very dissatisfied, I wasn’t expecting miracles. I was extremely surprised. While the prices for all of the pieces aren’t what I would normally spend if I were to go out shopping for myself, I’m also not known for spending wisely on pieces either. In theory, I’d always rather spend good money on quality, well-made pieces, but almost always end up throwing clearance pieces from Target into my cart. In the long run, I think this is a very smart way to slowly build up a good wardrobe. I’ll definitely be using them again!

All opinions expressed here are my own. I was NOT compensated for this Stitch Fix review, I just like spreading the news when I find something I love!
