Stitch Fix, 2nd Trimester Edition

I know it seems like almost no time has passed since my last Stitch Fix post! It's only been a couple of weeks, but about 3 months has passed since I actually received my last fix... I've been pretty excited to receive a maternity Stitch Fix box, partially in the hopes that they'd nail it and I could just buy it all, and partially because I just need inspiration. And when I opened the box? I loved it all!!!

Misimu Maternity Ravenscroft Split Neck Blouse ($48)


The first thing I pulled out of my box was this top and I looooved the print! But. There was a little hole in the back where it had clearly accidentally been cut during the packing process or something. I emailed customer service and am hoping I can exchange it for an undamaged one, because I loooooooooove this top. So. So. Much. It's got plenty of room to be worn throughout this pregnancy, and have I mentioned I love the print?

Verdict: Yes (assuming I can exchange it - I'll keep you updated)


Daniel Rainn Meszaros Eyelet Maternity Top ($74) - more Daniel Rainn Maternity here

I really adore eyelet, and I was excited about this top except... I wasn't sure how the silhouette would work on me. As you can see in the top picture, even in my default "flattering" pose, it makes me look rather large.


This angle is much better, but this isn't exactly how I stand all day long. That plus the price tag made me send it back. I found this top with a similar feel, more of a shape, and a MUCH lower price tag, and I think I might try it out. 

Verdict: No


Eight Sixty Gabre Eyelet Knit Maternity Dress ($88)

Again, I love eyelet. And I love blue! Cecilia really liked this one, but it was just a tad short and not super-flattering (waist was a little too low), so it went back.

Verdict: No


Loveappella Maternity Ash Maternity Printed Flare Skirt ($54)

I wasn't sure how I felt about this at first... The kids really liked it, and it was super-comfortable. But I just don't think I love it on me - I feel like it would need to be paired with a slimmer top, which ends up accentuating my love handles awkwardly... 

Verdict: No


Stitch Fix 3-Pack Maternity Cami ($44)

This is actually a decent price for nice layering tank tops - my stylist said that these would be great to wear around the farm but... Not so much. For layering? Great! For wearing as standalone clothing? No. Hence the no picture. Heck, I don't even wear the tank top (these are my favorites) in the picture before this one out in public without a top over them. They were nice and sturdy and would be perfect for somebody taller! But I'm 5'2" and they reached almost to my knees. And I already have enough slips.

Verdict: No

I found this fix super-helpful, even though only one item worked out - the cut of the first top wasn't a super-maternity-ish cut, so I think I'm going to look for some regular tops (especially swing tops like this one or this one) in larger sizes to wear for the summer, since I'm pretty underwhelmed by the maternity selection on pretty much every website I've been to recently. Although some maternity tops look promising now that I'm okay with a looser fit after this fix - maybe this one from Old Navy?

If you want to be amazing and enable my Stitch Fix-ing a little more, if you sign up through my referral link and get your first fix by July 28, I get $50 of credit instead of the usual $25! I've gotten enough credit based on my referrals that I can generally get the styling fee of $20 covered, plus $5 towards something I might choose, but $50 would give me more to play with :)
