My First Fix

Being pregnant comes with all sorts of challenges.  In the grand picture of pregnancy, a minor problem that occurs daily is getting dressed.  It has been difficult to learn how to put together an outfit for my new body.  A body that I am proud of with every kick of my amazing baby girl.  So, how do I dress myself with that pride?  I can tell you that heading out to the mall and trying on clothes in a dressing room sounds horrible.  I felt defeated in an area I truly love, CLOTHES!

Then I heard that Stitch Fix has maternity clothes!!  I can get a box  delivered to my front door and try clothes on in the privacy of my own home, all for $20.  I’ve signed up for once a month but you can choose how often you want to receive clothes and it’ll be $20 for each fix.

 

After I filled out a style profile to let the stylist know what I’m looking for I scheduled my first fix delivery.

I loved opening up the package and getting a note from the stylist to explain everything.

The inspiration that comes with the letter helps remind me what I already have in my closet and gets me excited about the potential outfits I can create! Something I haven’t felt in awhile.

Now it’s time to try the outfits on! I thought I should treat this like a dressing room and only show you the outfits I like? NO! I’m going to show you what looks good and not so great.

First I tried out the Liverpool maternity jeans with the Hattan knit top.

Let’s start with the jeans.  I NEVER WANT TO TAKE THEM OFF! Yes, I’m yelling at you because that is my exact reaction when I showed my husband. They feel like pajama bottoms and they don’t give you the maternity jean saggy booty. My first fix is off to a great start.  These are $78 which is the most I’ve ever spent on jeans but I knew they would be worth it.

Now for the top {$54}.  I always think I’m going to wear a shirt like this and then it sits in my closet. I liked it, a simple top that fit me well but I just didn’t love it. In the maybe pile it went.

 

Next top, the Aldrich knit top {$48}.  Look at that sassy back!  I like this one but wish there was more going on in the front.  The fit was great and it was comfortable! Off to the maybe pile.

Last top, Pennellas knit top {$48}. Wow, is this a comfy shirt!  I just fell in love with it when I put it on. With the most comfy jeans ever and this top I felt so so comfortable.  I like that this wasn’t a plain or a floral top which I feel like are the only options sometimes with maternity clothing. This is going in the yes pile!

I had to take off my new favorite outfit and try on the Tahj Maternity Jersey Maxi dress {$78}.  Being pregnant in the summer I’m sure you’ll see me in maxi dresses… a lot. Before I put the dress on I thought I would love it, just a reminder to always try things on. When I looked in the mirror I didn’t love it on me.  The top fit me a little strange and the pattern on the bottom wasn’t super flattering on me.  This is heading into the no pile.

I’ve tried everything on and it’s time to go to my account and let them know what I’ll be keeping. I decided to take my maybe pile and transfer them into the no pile.  I didn’t have the budget to just buy for fun and I want to make sure I can buy everything I love each month.  What I’m not keeping goes into a pre-paid envelope and my yes pile heads straight into my closet. Grand total… $106!

  1. Loved this, I wasn’t sure what it was at first. I thought you looked pretty cute in the dress, maybe it photographed better then it really looked.
    If you haven’t checked out Zulily, give it a try. Cute maternity and baby clothes at affordable prices, plus excellent customer service. They go above and beyond to make sure you’re happy with the purchase, at no extra cost.
