Stitch Fix: Post Partum Edition

Friday, March 29, 2019

Oh you guys. On Monday my Stitch Fix box arrived, on Tuesday I actually had the chance to open it, and every single night I tried to get pictures of the items but this baby is NOT one to cooperate. There were a couple days this week when she nursed, I kid you not, for 16 out of 24 hours.

But then Friday came along and, exhausted and about ready to snap, I swaddled her and she took such an epic nap that I got dishes done, dinner prepped, swept the kitchen, and folded and put away three loads of laundry!!! And I figured I'd press my luck and get one of the kids to take some quick pictures of me with the clothes thrown on... It worked! Miracle of miracles!

But enough about my crazy life. Here's what my stylist sent:

Leota Landry Faux Wrap Knit Dress ($88)

I was close to keeping this (although the price was high, but I could tell this is the kind of dress that would last forever) but you guys. The worst part about wrap dresses is how the skirt comes open every time you move, which is why faux wrap dresses are so great, because you can nurse easily without wardrobe malfunctions. But this one was faux-wrap on top AND on bottom. Grrrrrr.

Verdict: No

41 Hawthorn Isadora Shirt Dress ($68)

This was a weird print, too short, and just generally not my style.

Verdict: No

Margaret M Deandra Skirt ($68)

When it comes to skirts and dresses, I like petite sizes when they're maxi-length, otherwise I prefer regular sizes so things aren't too awkwardly short. But my stylist sent this skirt in a petite size, so it was too short for me to wear at my natural waist, and made me look frumpy pulled down lower. Plus $68 for a pull-on skirt is too much for me.

Verdict: No

Fortune + Ivy Christelle Button Down Blouse ($38) 

I feel like I can never have too many of this style of top. Perfect neutral-ish color to match most everything I already own, and I have so many printed skirts and not enough solid tops, so this fits right into my wardrobe perfectly.

Verdict: Yes

Leota Dixie Faux Wrap Knit Maxi Dress ($88) 

Sigh. So much too long. Like, 6 inches too long. Could I get it hemmed? Sure. Would I get it hemmed? Nope.

Verdict: No 

I asked for nursing-friendly clothes and hopefully something I could wear for Easter. My stylist sent a basic button-down (PERFECT and exactly what I needed since I have a ton of patterned skirts), a stretchy skirt, and three nursing-friendly dresses in colors that I like. Overall these were really post partum-friendly clothes, and I think she did a great job choosing things but I am SO picky.

  1. I could sew a couple of velcro dots on that actual wrap dress, and then it wouldn't come open -- but of course it would look like it was fastened. Maybe just halfway up would do it for a velcro dot?

    1. Yes, I often put a hook-and-eye or two on wrap dresses and skirts to help them stay shut. It is very helpful. :)
