September 2017 Stitch Fix Subscription Box Review {Maternity}

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

Stitch Fix is a personal styling subscription box. Your stylist will send you 5 pieces based on your profile for you to try on at home and hopefully fall in love with. There are no coupons for Stitch Fix but if you hit the jackpot and keep everything, you save 25% on your whole fix (read below for details).

Don’t forget – Stitch Fix now has boxes for men, and size exchanges! Guys can now sign up for Stitch Fix, and handy size exchanges are available right from the app or website. Checkout will indicate what other sizes are available, and this is fabulous!

Your return mailer is tucked right into the box. The styling fee for this subscription is $20, and shipping is free both ways. I put my return items out with the rest of my outgoing mail – couldn’t be easier.

Oh hey, this is actually a maternity review. Shh, don’t tell.

Every box includes a set of styling cards with suggestions on how to wear the particular item. The styling cards have changed a bit – before they showed a dressier and less dressy version, now they’re featuring multiple sets of accessories to pair with the garment, or 2 entirely different looks, but not necessarily dressed up and dressed down.

I find the styling cards very helpful. I am not a naturally good-at-fashion person and these help a LOT. Even if I don’t keep the pieces I use them as inspiration – like my own personal fashion editor!

Here’s how Stitch Fix works: fill out your style profile! This includes style, budget, what you’re looking for, and you can get as detailed as you want with the notes to your stylist. It really really does help to provide notes to what you’re seeking, and a Pinterest board if you have one!

You will also receive a separate paper with a list of your items. You’ll be charged a $20 styling fee and shipped five items to try on at home. If you keep anything your styling fee will be applied to your order, but if you don’t, you will pay the $20 fee.

The styling fee is so worth it – I never go clothes shopping anymore. I just wait for my fix! If you keep everything you get a 25% discount, so it pays off to be specific in your style profile . You will check out and get charged through your Stitch Fix account. Return the pieces you don’t want in the prepaid mailer (free shipping!).

If I kept everything in the box, this fix would be $2202 – about $40 per item (after the styling fee I already paid for).

Everything in my September fix.  Oh hey, it’s a maternity fix!

Daniel Rainn Maternity Brett Maternity Flutter Sleeve Knit Top ($58) This flutter sleeve top has a lot of detail – swiss dots on the top, pleats, tassels, and a long top with a forgiving pattern.

This is adorable – but it’s September in Pennsylvania. The rest of my pregnancy isn’t getting any warmer. BRR. Returned.

Gilli Trista Jersey Faux Wrap Maternity Dress ($68) I loved this wrap dress and unlike most wrap dresses it didn’t gap around my bra and was super wearable.

The fit was great, but made me look insanely pregnant! I would have kept it except for the issue noted below with the plaid dress. That, and I thought that it was so maternity friendly I’d still be looking pregnant afterwards.

Full Moon Kassey Pocket Maternity Knit Top ($48) Despite looking a bit scuzzy and wrinkly right out of the box, this shirt is soft and perfect for a nice relaxing day – and ooooh so long.

I liked this shirt, but it was a bit too relaxed style for me – I wanted something a tad more polished.

41Hawthorn Breyson Pleated Tab Sleeve Blouse ($58) This is an adorable long sleeve pleated placket (front and back!) shirt that is my favorite color in the world.

Loved this shirt and kept it – it’s not maternity and probably won’t fit for too much longer, but I needed it – and I couldn’t not have it for post baby, when it will be perfection.

Skies are Blue Nevara Maternity Cotton Shirt Dress ($64) I’m not sure what sort of pregnant woman (or any woman) this sack-like plaid dress would look good on.

I alternated between wondering if I should wear it barefoot or pierce my nose and apply heavy black eyeliner and pretend I was back in my grunge days.

So I liked enough stuff in this fix to keep the whole thing – except for the heinous plaid dress, so I went down to one item (the purple shirt), which wasn’t a maternity item.

What did you get in your Stitch Fix this past month??

    Purple is my favorite color also and the style of the blouse was lovely. Good decision. I agree with you about the plaid dress. They were thinking: This size will be for a larger person who is pregnant. Let’s make it as ugly as possible!
