Stitch Fix Review - #2
So, here is what I got in my fix.
MADIGAN LAREN LACE DETAIL KNIT TOP
Navy blues are one of my favorite colors to wear so I was excited about this top. And, when I saw the detail on the shoulders I was even more excited. Anything lace detail, sign me up.
So. much. material. This is probably the stretchiest maternity top I've ever had on, which is probably a blessing come 8/9 months along but it was a bit overwhelming on my then 18 week bump. I could pull it down all the way and have a dress.
The material was soft but clingy thin. You could see the outline of my bra, which I really dislike. I could probably have worn a thin tank underneath it, but in Florida...during the summer...layers just aren't that great.
The color also had a purple-y tone to it. Tone? Is that the right term... I wasn't a big fan of the purple.
It was almost a hit but those few little drawbacks were enough for me to send it back.
LOVEAPPELLA MATERNITY OASIS TWIST SLEEVE KNIT TOP
More blue! Hooray!
I loved everything about this top except the twisted sleeves. They were awkward to position, and I thought they just downright looked odd on me. It also had a lot of stretch like the lace detail top, but not as extreme. And, I really loved that color of blue but the twists were a no go.
EIGHTY SIXTY GABRE EYELET KNIT MATERNITY DRESS
When I picked this dress up it looked like it had a lot of material to it, but I was loving the eyelet.
I slipped this dress on and it was as soft as butter. Soft and stretchy and light. It was love at first feel. I just can't say enough lovely things about this dress. It's super comfortable while still looking put together. And the back neck scoop is lower than the front neck scoop, which I thought was a really fun detail.
RENEE C JORDIE ABSTRACT PRINT MAXI SKIRT
I wasn't so sure about the print when I pulled it out. It's certainly out there and a bit crazy.
I ended up liking the print better on than off, but it was still a bit more crazy than I prefer.
It wasn't a maternity skirt but stretchy enough to accommodate the bump. Plus, I could wear it after this pregnancy as well.
It was thick enough that I didn't have to worry about underwear lines too, which I appreciate.
I wavered back and forth on whether I wanted to keep it or not, but in the end I felt that the print was too much. I certainly liked it though, but no where near as much as I loved the eyelet dress.
LOVEAPPELLA GARNET KNIT MATERNITY MAXI DRESS
I was excited for both a pink item and a maxi. I love a good maxi dress.
Unfortunately as soon as I put it on I saw a quarter sized hole between the top and bottom sections. It was certainly soft but it also felt like it would fall apart especially since it already was. The pattern also reminded me of a rug. Even without a hole it wasn't a keeper.
I contacted costumer service to let them know about the defect, and just sent it back with the other items I didn't want.

I had a blonde moment and threw away my piece of paper that detailed all the prices, so the only one I know is the one I actually purchased. Oops. I do think it was the most expensive of the bunch though. Naturally.
