Stitch Fix: May 2016

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I’m sharing my most recent Stitch Fix today – my second maternity one. This month, I had yet another new stylist, Blake Lindsey. I think she did an okay job, but I am missing my Darla! Here’s what I got in this fix. (Also, I apologize for the weird lighting – it rained for nearly a month here and I didn’t realize the photos were weird until I’d already packed things up to send back.)

Stitch Fix May 2016 - Stitch Fix Maternity has been a great way to build my maternity wardrobe!

Eight Sixty Gabre Eyelet Knit Maternity Dress – XL – $88

Eight Sixty Gabre Eyelet Knit Maternity Dress - Stitch Fix Maternity Review

I will be honest, I was not super happy to see this dress was coming… because I received this exact dress in black last month. Even though this one had shorter sleeves and was a different color, I still wasn’t a fan. I think it’s too heavy for a summer dress and felt it made me look even wider. Verdict: Returned.

Gilli Trista Jersey Faux Wrap Maternity Dress – XL – $68

 Gilli Trista Jersey Faux Wrap Maternity Dress - One of the most versatile dresses I've received from Stitch Fix Maternity - and my favorite!

I wasn’t really sure I would like this dress when I saw the preview in my Stitch Fix app, but I loved this dress the moment I put it on. For one, it’s incredibly flattering and I love the navy. It’s made with a great lightweight, stretchy fabric and is insanely comfortable – I can see it working for this entire pregnancy. It’s one of those dresses that will work all summer and into the fall, and it’s even dressy enough for work. I’m really hoping to get more like this one! Verdict: Just get in my closet already – Kept!

Full Moon Lanny Maternity Knit Top – XL – $48

The photo makes this one a bit washed out, but it’s a pale pink with gray stripes. The fit on this is great, and I love how soft the fabric is. It’s really lightweight and I can make it work for the office with some layers and jewelry. I also like the length – it isn’t too long on me like a lot of maternity tops are. Verdict: Kept!

Market & Spruce Chesnie Boat Neck Maternity Knit Top – XL – $54

The moment I pulled this one out of the box, I was iffy about it, and I was right. I didn’t really like anything about this top – it was WAY too long, and I didn’t like the boat neck. I really feel like the boat neck made me look wide and I hated that it showed my bra straps. I also thought the pattern was too big for me. Verdict: Returned.

Market & Spruce Sollas Maternity Knit Top – XL – $38

Market & Spruce Sollas Maternity Knit Top - A soft and casual option from Stitch Fix Maternity

This is one I really went back and forth on until the last moment, but ultimately decided I didn’t love it. This was entirely too big on me, and was definitely way too long. I really liked the fabric (so soft) and the color, but I just didn’t feel it fit right and I only want to keep things that fit well and that I love – even if I am short on maternity clothes. Verdict: Returned.

So that’s maternity fix number two! While I do love the two pieces I kept, I wish some of the others had worked out – maternity wardrobes are so hard to build, especially when you’re working! I’m hoping my next fix is a good one, and I’m really hoping I get Darla back at some point since I miss her! Here’s to a new fix next month!

  1. I like your choices, especially the faux wrap dress. Very pretty on you. I also only buy clothes that I absolutely love because, otherwise they just sit in my closet. One of my projects for this weekend is to get rid of all of the clothes that I don’t wear.

  2. I am pretty sure I would have kept everything!! I loved maternity clothing. Does that make me weird? I loved the fit and comfort. You know I’m all about loose flowy clothing and comfort.

  3. You look great! 🙂 I don’t think I’ve officially said congratulations, so… CONGRATULATIONS! 🙂 I’m so excited for you!

  4. Absolutely love the dress you kept! It’s gorgeous now and will grow with your bump perfectly. And how lame that they sent you nearly an identical dress to last time; that’s frustrating!
