Stitch Fix #3 | My Review

IMG_1132

I’m working on my winter capsule right now (yay!) and decided to order another Stitch Fix to help with some of the missing pieces. To be honest, I wasn’t as excited with this one as the first two, and here’s why.

In my excitement a few weeks ago, I went into my style profile and changed my status to “pregnant” and entered my due date, which is July 8 of next year. I should have thought to let my stylist know that I didn’t actually want any maternity clothing yet (I don’t expect to have enough of a bump by the end of February that I won’t still be able to wear regular clothing). But I didn’t say anything, and they sent me two maternity pieces. Not the end of the world, but a little disappointing. I’ll be sure to specify next time.

Here’s what came in my third box:

Klarisa Open Drape Cardigan, $88

Copolla Elbow Patch Maternity Knit Top, $54

Corinna Striped Dolman Top, $48

Colibri Solid Tab Sleeve Blouse, $48

 

IMG_1130
Mira Maternity Skinny Jean, $78

My thoughts on these pieces:

  • The burgundy cardigan is beautiful. It’s one of my favorite colors and would have gone well with the things in my closet right now. I was actually planning to keep it, until I saw the price tag. It’s one of those sweaters that’s a little hard to judge on how well it will hold up, and I just wasn’t willing to risk it for that much money.
  • The maternity top with the elbow patches is super cute. But I’m having a July baby! Not the right season at all. I’ll admit I felt a little frustrated that they didn’t think through that one. It would be super cute for fall and even early winter, like right now, but I’m only 7 weeks along…I won’t be showing for a while yet, so it would be a little weird to wear the t-shirts with the ruching at the side seams now already!
  • The striped dolman top is the one thing I kept from this Fix. It’s flattering + comfortable, and is quite different from anything else I own but will go great with some of my winter pieces. And thanks to some credit I still have leftover from referrals, I only paid $20 for it. 🙂
  • The green blouse is super similar to one I bought at Old Navy last year this time and ended up not wearing very much. It’s just not really my style I guess, and see those wrinkles?–that confirms it even more. Chiffon just is not my favorite fabric. It’s a really pretty color, and like my stylist mentioned, would have been a great transitional piece into the second and maybe even third trimesters AND have been great for nursing, but it just didn’t feel “me” enough.
  • As for the maternity jeans? My first thought was, I’m not sure I’ll even wear maternity jeans! It’s mostly too hot for jeans in June and July around here, and when I do want some, I hope to be able to make do with what I have, with the help of a Bellaband or something similar. If this pair would have been really great I might have considered keeping them, but they seemed to be on the cheaper side and weren’t a very flattering fit on my legs.

I loved the “how to wear it” cards they sent me with this box once again, and aside from the part where they seemed to have overlooked this baby’s due date, I was happy with Fix #3 overall. I know for next time how to better describe my needs in the note to my stylist, and I may even order another one right away for the next few weeks as I’m finishing up my Winter Capsule. And I have heard really good things about their maternity selections (such as, they’re cuter than what you can find in stores), so I am looking forward to seeing what they have to offer me in that department next spring. 🙂
