Stitch Fix April 2016 – Maternity Edition!

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I’m so excited today to share my latest Stitch Fix box with you – my very first maternity one! I have friends that have received some of their very favorite pieces in maternity boxes, so I was excited to hop on board. I’m sorely in need of maternity clothes since I have nothing from last time. For some reason, my stylist was switched from Darla to Kathryn for this fix. I’m not sure if that was because of my pregnancy or what, so that was one surprise in this fix.

Stitch Fix April 2016

Daniel Rainn Pistacia Split Neck Maternity Blouse – XL – $68

I pretty much knew this top wasn’t a keeper from the moment I saw the preview of it on the Stitch Fix app. I’ve tried on flowy tops like this before, and they’re just not my thing. I always feel like they make me look like a tent. I know as my belly grows, this would provide coverage, but I’m more of the mind to embrace and show off the bump rather than hide it. The sizing was spot on with this one, but in the end it just wasn’t me. I do want to mention that this top did come with a cami that fit really well, so don’t worry bout it being sheer! Verdict: Returned.

Eight Sixty Gabre Eyelet Maternity Dress – XL – $88

Honestly, I was surprised to see this dress in my fix, because it’s fairly formal and seems like a winter dress. The but of it fits well and is perfect for a bump, but I honestly had no reason to wear this. I don’t have a wedding to attend until September, and I like something breathable in summer – this was a bit thick and stuffy. Virginia’s summers are hot and humid, and there’s no way this would be worn much. Verdict: Returned.

Kut from the Kloth Lexy Tulip Hem Maternity Jean – 12 – $88

I had asked for a pair of maternity jeans and have had Kut from the Kloth before, so I was happy to see these coming in my fix. While the sizing on these was perfect, they’re full-panel and the panel hit me in all the wrong places. My bum starts pretty low on my hips, and the panel started above it… which meant these would never stay up. I love the tulip hem on them, but these just weren’t a winner. I’m currently on the hunt for a pair of maternity jeans that have the stretchy waist and hoping something like that will fit better. Verdict: Returned.

Loveappella Maternity Deschutes Lace Detail Maternity Knit Top – XL – $54

This one was a tough one. I really liked the color, and I love the brand Loveappella – all their items are really well made and soft. The lace top of this was a tad tight, and the longer sleeves and color definitely made this more of a fall or winter top rather than spring an summer. It made me so sad, but I ended up sending this back. Verdict: Returned.

Madigan Nervo Lace V-Neck Maternity Knit Top – XL – $54

Finally, the piece that was absolutely perfect. This one was exactly what I’m looking for – short sleeves, work appropriate, embraces the bump, and a fun, bright color. I love the detail up top and Chris loved this one immediately too. I really want to try to stick with short sleeves this pregnancy so I can wear things all summer and just add layers in the fall. I really hope I get more pieces like this! Verdict: Kept!

All in all, I think this was a good first maternity fix. I have a feeling just like regular fixes, it may take a bit to get right, especially because I was assigned a new stylist. Kathryn did do a good job of noting my preferences (like the fact that I like lace was in my note), so I’m hopeful this is just the start of things to come. Now to wait for my next fix!

  1. I loved that dress on you! I probably wouldn’t have kept it either, if I didn’t have a need for it, but you should find more casual dresses in that style!

  2. I think this box was a great start! It had lots of different pieces and things to choose from- which I like! I ended up asking them to stop sending me maternity and just size up in regular things. Which worked great because now I still wear them!

  3. The dress is just amazing on you! But, if you have no where to where and it is the wrong season…what can ya do. It is really good looking though! Love what you kept.

  4. Love the top you kept; it’s a great color on you! But I am absolutely obsessed with that dress on you! You needed to find occasions to wear it too, ha!

  5. Oh I loved the eyelet dress! I don’t think it looked too formal. Perfect for a date night this summer!

  6. Love the dress… Too bad you don’t have a wedding to go to! Loved the top you kept too!!!
