It has been a minute since I got a Stitch Fix box! My last one came mid-November, so needless to say, my shape has changed *quite* a bit since then. Thankfully, the lovely stylist Dana came through for me.I love reading Stitch Fix posts, so I hope you guys enjoy them too. They’re a lot of fun to put together and believe it or not, even more fun to shop. So onward and upward to Maternity Stitch Fix Review Box #5! I can’t wait to show you what all I was sent 🙂
Market and Spruce Corinna Striped Dolman Top
I’ve seen this shirt pop up on many a blog over the last few months and I have always loved it. I’ve been dying to try out a dolman style shirt for a while now, so I went ahead and added a few Stitch Fix pins to my style board on Pinterest. I’m SO glad that I did! This top came and I absolutely loved it. It’s a Courtney top through and through on a regular day, but it is also roomy enough that it will work perfectly as a maternity top AND will be great for the awkward postpartum phase that I’ll be walking through this summer/fall.
Big time, super happy about it, keeper!
Rune Porter Maternity Legging
I broke my absolutely, positively, Courtney #1 fashion rule for this Stitch Fix box:
Leggings are NOT pants.
I don’t care how you slice it, to me, it’s a no no.
Leggings under a dress? Love it.
Leggings under a tunic? I’m down.
Leggings with a shirt? Nope nope nope nope nope.
Anyway, let’s take a look at these leggings for what they are. They’re maternity, so they had a soft and stretchy panel. They were thick which is great because things don’t need to be any more stretched than they already are. And, they were long enough for my long legs.
I seriously almost kept them, specifically because none of the leggings at Destination/Pea In A Pod/ Motherhood were long enough on me. Seriously, they were all like capris.
But, I couldn’t justify the price tag on them. They were just too steep for a pair of leggings that I *probably* wouldn’t actually wear all that often, seeing as how I won’t wear them as pants.
LA Made Maternity Mavin Hooded Henley Maternity Thermal
I kind of hated this shirt when it came out of the box. For some reason, buttons like these are just not my thing.
I think it’s some sort of weird residual hate that stems from the clothes my mom dressed me in when I was a little girl. I’ve been able to overcome most of my strange clothing aversions as I’ve matured, but buttons aren’t one of them. It’s weird. I know.
Anyway, the blue was a great color, the shirt was soft, it had an adorable hood on the back.
It just had one big problem.:
I can’t stand maternity shirts that have side ruching. Call me crazy but it just screams “Hey, this is a MATERNITY shirt, oh and hey, you’ll never be able to wear this again after your kid comes out.”
The dolman above was a great option to me because it was loose and capable of being a maternity shirt, a postpartum shirt, and just a regular awesome shirt. This shirt is only capable of being maternity and therefore, it was sent back.
LA Made Maternity Alysha Cap Sleeve Knit Top
Oh Stitch Fix.
What is this??
Are pregnant ladies hitting up the club and I wasn’t aware of it? (I’m having visions of Katherine Heigl in Knocked Up huge and trying to go clubbing) Am I headed to a night on the town or a bachelorette party or something equally crazy? Because this outfit.
Abigail and I are laughing at the ridiculousness of it. Is it a dress? Is it a shirt? What is happening with this article of clothing? It’s way, way too long to work with jeans. It’s way, way too short to be a dress. And it’s mostly just too tight and vibrant for anyone to want to look at a pregnant lady in.
Haha, no. Bye bye red/pink dress/shirt.
Pixley Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan
Another almost keeper! I pondered and pondered because I don’t have a black cardigan and really liked this one, but ultimately decided it was too light weight of a fabric to get a *ton* of use out of. And really, it wasn’t unique or original enough for me to justify paying a Stitch Fix price for it. If I really need a black cardigan I’ll go Walmart style. Sent back!What do you think? Which items would you have kept?
