Stitch Fix, where have you been all of my life?
This is my second “fix”, the first one was a few months ago and I didn’t even think to share it with you all. But, I just love it so much and couldn’t help but share and review it for you!
For those that don’t know, Stitch Fix is a subscription service that sends you personalized wardrobe options on the schedule of your choosing. You can get “fixes” sent to you every 2-3 weeks, once a month, once every three months, pretty much whenever you decide! You can even pick the dates that you want your box to arrive. This is especially handy if you have an even or something that you are needing a specific item of clothing for.
Stitch Fix sends all types of clothing and accessories, not counting shoes. They charge $20 for the styling fee, because your box is styled by a professional stylist, but that $20 is something that you can turn around and use towards an item in your fix if you choose to do so. If you like it, you keep it and pay the difference. If you don’t, you can send any number of items back in the prepaid envelope they send. This makes returning things so quick and easy.
You personalize your profile with sizes, likes, dislikes, price range, and body type so that the stylist gets a really good picture of the types of clothes that you enjoy and that will look good on you.
Stitch Fix Review | Stitch Fix Maternity
Since I am going into my 7th month of pregnancy, I have been asking my stylist to send maternity clothes, obviously, since I can’t wear normal clothes right now. I LOVE that they have maternity options as well! This gained Stitch Fix some major points in my book. I also have a wedding to attend this month so I asked her to send a dress that I could potentially wear to that event.
I love that the stylist sends you a personal note with your fix, because I just think it makes it so much more enjoyable that way! There is also a little card with pictures of your items and ways that they could be paired together.
Here are the items that I got in my fix:
Ruffle Detail Tank, $54:
When I first tried this on, I thought for sure that I would return it. I wasn’t sold on the color, even though olive-green is really fitting for my skin tone and dark hair. I tried on the rest of the items and went back to this, and just loved it! It is really flattering on my growing belly, it is breathable material since it is already in the 80’s here in Arizona, and the ruffle detail made it more flattering and feminine. Definitely kept this one!
Cobalt Blue Blouse, $48:
The color of this shirt is amazing, but the fit… not so much. It has an elastic band on the bottom and a wrap front to make room for my baby belly, which is nice. But because it didn’t cinch in anywhere else, it made me look a lot bigger than I am and was also very low around the under arms. The cleavage cut out was also REALLY low since my chest area has a lot going on, which I don’t really like. I sent this one back, unfortunately.
Statement Necklace, $38:
I wanted so badly to love this necklace. I am a huge fan of statement necklaces and I really love gold jewelry as well. I put it on and loved the look of it, but because there are so many little metal beads so close together, the necklace pinched my skin and got caught in my hair every time I moved the wrong way. I always say that “beauty is pain” but I couldn’t deal with it this time. I really wish I could have kept it but I know I wouldn’t hardly wear it because of those issues. Sad day.
Navy Maternity Dress, $138:
I absolutely adored this dress. As soon as I put it on, I knew I would keep it. Navy is such a good color for me and even pregnant, I love form-fitting dresses. It wasn’t too tight, and the stitching on the side gave a lot of room for the baby belly. I was so in love with it, until I started thinking about the fact that the cleavage factor was really intense for the wedding I wanted to wear it to. I don’t mind a low neckline, but this was a little much considering… and I just couldn’t justify spending that amount of money on a maternity dress that I wasn’t going to wear more than a handful of times. So, I very sadly sent this one back as well.
This fix as a whole wasn’t a total win, but I really didn’t have too many complaints about the items either. It is hard to send clothing to someone who is pregnant because all baby bumps are different sizes, so I don’t blame the stylist at all for things not fitting perfectly.
As a mom, I love getting items sent to my door each month and getting to enjoy the act of shopping without taking my pregnant self and my two toddlers out shopping! I can’t wait to receive my fix next month!
