Now that I have announced my pregnancy, I can finally post about my second Stitch Fix box! I specifically asked my stylist for maternity friendly clothing, and I’m definitely showing in these photos, so I figured I would wait until the news was out.
For my first box I ended up keeping two of the items, but this time I kept the whole box! I was very pleased with the selections my stylist made. I feel like she did a good job listening to what I was looking for, and everything fit like a glove! Also, because of the 25% discount you receive if you keep everything, purchasing four of the five items would have cost the exact same amount, so I decided to go all in.
My first item was the 1822 Denim maternity jeans pictured above. I like the fit, the bright blue wash (which is different than the other two maternity jeans I own) and the very stretchy maternity panel. My only complaint on these was I wish they weren’t cropped at the ankle (especially since we are moving into winter). They are pretty short on me, and I am only 5’3″, so I think they might be a no go for taller girls. I would recommend the 1822 denim brand, I would just opt for a full-length version.
The top is by Full Moon Maternity. It is not linkable, which makes sense as Stitch Fix wants to keep some exclusivity with their products. Its a winter floral and is truly a maternity top so I know it’ll grow with me as my pregnancy progresses.
The tote above is from Sole Society. It is faux leather, but doesn’t look too fake. I like the size, the rose gold color and the fact that it comes with a little zipper clutch inside. I have nothing quite like this so I was happy to add it to my closet. It’s on sale for $39, too!
Long Sleeve Top:
The striped long sleeve top above is probably my favorite item I received, because on top of it being a great basic, it is incredibly soft. Its not actually a maternity top, but I have a feeling I will be wearing it far into this pregnancy.
The last item is this is a light weight, olive green knit cardigan. This color goes with so much and the fact that it’s not heavy means I can start wearing it right away!
My earrings are not from my Stitch Fix box, but I figured I’d mention them anyways. I actually made them at a recent Tweet & Peep Jewelry event I attended. You can find similar ones (actually made by the professional) on her site here.
My booties are Vince Camuto and were from the Nordstrom sale this summer. I think they are really cute and look forward to getting lots of use out of them this fall and winter. They are actually 40% now, so if you like them now would be a good time to grab them!
How Stitch Fix Works:
I was pretty impressed with my Stitch Fix box this time around. The pieces were good quality, the prices were reasonable and my stylist did a good job helping me find the maternity staples I was looking for.
Stitch Fix is an online, personal styling service that sends you five pieces of clothing to try on in the comfort of your home. They also send you a prepaid USPS pouch to mail back whatever you don’t want to keep.
You fill out a pretty thorough style profile before your first “fix” so the stylist you get paired with can select items they know you will like. They ask everything from height and typical clothing size, to what areas of your body you like to flaunt or draw attention away from, to colors you like to wear, to price point you want to pay.
Other things to note:
- If you buy everything in the box, you get 25% off everything. So if you are liking at least four of the items, you might as well keep them all!
- They ask you to go online and “check out” three days after you receive your box. You can, however, extend your checkout date so you have more time to decide. I took advantage of this!
- This is a subscription service with different options on how often you want a “fix” – every couple weeks, once a month, every other month or every three months.
- However, you can turn off the automatic shipments under “My Account” and then “Fix Frequency”. It will then classify your frequency as “On Demand”. This is what I did.
- Shipping is free both ways, but there is a $20 styling fee. If you purchase any item in your box, the $20 goes towards that item. You only pay it if you send everything back.
Want a Fix?
If you have an interest in giving Stitch Fix a try, use my link for $25 off your first box! My least expensive item in my most recent box was $38, so you might be able to get an item at a really great price, or the $25 could cover your stylist fee if nothing works for you.
Please know I will receive a credit if you use my link (in which case I will be very grateful)!
