Stitch Fix Review – September 2018
My first fall Stitch Fix arrived last week! Stitch Fix (<- referral link!) is a personal styling service that is ideal for anyone who doesn’t have time to shop, is looking for specific items each season, or just loves clothing in general. UPDATE – For a short period of time, StitchFix is giving a $25 credit to new users! Use my link to snag this offer.
When you sign up, you take an in-depth survey about your clothing sizes, style, and pricing preferences. After reviewing this information, your personal stylist will send you 5 items to try. The fee for this service is $20, which includes free shipping and free returns. If you keep any of the items they send you, you get to deduct the $20 fee from the total (if you keep all five items, you also get a 25% discount!)
This time around I added a detailed note to my fix because I updated my profile to Maternity!! Since I’m only 14 weeks, I wanted a mix of comfy, stretchy clothes that will accommodate a growing bump 🙂 I also spent a decent amount of time on my Pinterest board to share what looks I’m interested in. You can follow StitchFix on Pinterest and re-pin any clothing they feature. It just might show up in your box!
When you receive your box, you have three days to decide what items you want to keep and what items you want to return. There is a “Checkout” option in your online account to let them know what you’re keeping (and paying for) and provide feedback on all the clothes. This is another great opportunity to tell your stylist about your likes/dislikes. Your credit card is only charged for the items you keep (minus the $20 styling fee!). A USPS bag (for the free shipping) is provided in the box to return the other items. I also discovered that USPS will pick up packages from your doorstep, so I didn’t even have to make a trip to the post office!
Check out the five items included in my September box:
Staccato Plaid Cardigan ($48) – Who doesn’t love a sweater that feels like a blanket?? I love the plaid and the draped fabric in the front, but the material wasn’t very soft. I was on the fence about keeping this top, but ultimately decided to return it. RETURN
Loveappella Maternity Knit Top ($54) – This maternity sweater was super soft and I love the plaid cuffs. However, for $54 it just wasn’t worth keeping. I’m sure I can find a similar basic sweater for a lot less money. RETURN
Loveappella Maternity Charlote Knit Top ($48) – I pulled this out of the box and immediately knew it was a keeper. The print is adorable and perfect for fall. Plus, the material is wonderful. I’ve been hoping to find tops to wear with leggings and this one is just a few inches too short, but it looks great with jeans so I’m keeping it! Plus, it’s great for bump pictures 🙂 KEEP
Daniel Rainn Quinby Mixed Material Top ($64) – At $64, this was definitely going back to Stitch Fix. It’s a pretty standard blouse that’s just not worth the price. RETURN
Nine Britton Skylee Knit Dress ($34) – Now this is exactly what I’m looking for to wear with leggings! It’s the perfect length and super cozy. While not dressy enough to wear to work (oh well), it’s perfect for everywhere else! KEEP
I’m surprised at how spot on this box fit my style since I had a brand new maternity stylist! I can’t wait to see what I get next time around.

Adorable baby bump. Love the tops
Cute! It can be tricky to find clothes that fit when you’re in that in between phase. I definitely used the elastic trick on my jeans for as long as I could manage!
They are all super cute–it would be hard to pick! I like your choices. I think my maternity strategy was to buy things with short sleeves and layer long cardigans over the top, since it felt like my body temperature changed so frequently. I love that dress, though–it looks really comfortable and cute (also, I’m not sure what your work is like, but I feel like when I and others were pregnant, we got a little more of a pass to dress slightly casually in our office. That dress would totally pass at my work. When I was pregnant in the summer, I actually had to wear flip flops because my feet swelled so badly they wouldn’t fit in any other shoes! Just something to consider as you get bigger and more uncomfortable 🙂 ).
