A year and two months ago my husband and I packed all our stuff into storage and moved to Paris for two months. Then we came back and moved to California for 6 months. Now we’re back in North Georgia and trying to move to Altanta (STILL HOUSE HUNTING), our stuff still in storage. Needless to say, the clothes we packed for two months in Paris have long since gotten old. Gaining 40 lbs of baby (yes, I’m having a 40 lb. baby, I don’t want to hear it) has not helped in the clothing situation, so when Stitch Fix announced they were starting to sell maternity clothes (and petite clothes, for all you teeny-weenies out there!) as well, I was all over it. I got my first one in the mail last weekend and couldn’t wait to share it with you guys!

Maternity Stitch Fix Review
Loveappella Maternity Plumeria Mixed Material Maternity Top ($48)
Positives: Love the sassy back. Still loving the hi-lo look that covers my ever enlarging backside. It’s sooooooo comfy. Also easy to nurse in. Stylish and I can wear it while losing the baby weight. Negatives: The whole reason I joined Stitch Fix was to start elevating my wardrobe. But unfortunately I’m always going to be a sucker for anything comfy, so of course this is the first one I decided to keep. And plus my clothes have been in storage for a year, I need a new shirt.
Eight Sixty Maternity Jeandra Crochet Lace Maternity Top ($78)
Positives: Very comfortable to wear. It’s black so will go with a lot of what I have. It will be super easy to wear and nurse baby boy #2. I also love the pipe like sleeves. I think this shirt will look really nice with white pants (post Easter of course). Negatives: It’s not the most flattering right now, but with my due date being yesterday, I’m okay waiting it out.
Mystree Vinnie Open Crochet Detail Cardigan ($58)
Positives: Love the detailing on the back. Love the off white color. Perfect for cool summer evenings. Negatives: It’s made of acrylic. I really hate acrylic.
Eight Sixty Maria Maternity Scoop Neck Eyelet Trim Knit Top ($88)
Positives: Love the length of this top. Usually by this stage of the game you’re lucky if you can’t see my belly button. I tend to look a little like Rachel from Friends. What I love about this shirt is I’m in no danger of it riding up. I like the style. And I also like that it mostly makes me look small. Negatives: It’s kind of a heavier shirt going into a Georgia spring and summer. It’s a great maternity shirt, but will not do me any favors while I’m getting my body back. Sending back.
Mavi Freida Maternity Regular Length Jeans ($128)
Positives: I LOVE the paneling. It’s strong, stretchy and reinforced so you don’t feel like you’ve got to pick your belly up when you stand up. Negatives: A tad too small and also they look hideous on me. I have muscular thighs so finding a skinny jean style that works for me and doesn’t make me look like I have carrots for legs isn’t always easy. Going to send back.
And because they were so hideous, I didn’t even take a picture in them. But imagine dark skinny jeans that are well made and if you look good in skinnies, these will look good on you. And if you’re pregnant all the better. I know Nordstrom sells this brand, so that tells me they are probably pretty good quality.
What do you think I should keep and send back?
*If you sign up using my referral link, I do get a credit, but I really recommend Stitch Fix. I will never endorse something I don’t believe in.
PS – I’m still pregnant. I’m two days late at this point. I’ve started drinking Sriracha with my cereal.
