Here is my latest Stitch Fix unboxing– I asked for postpartum friendly clothing…let’s see how they did!
I am really excited about this Stitch Fix box, but honestly, I’m not really excited about the pictures of myself in this post! I am sporting the mom-bun and we had very little time to worry about getting good pictures because my husband was busy working and we were snapping pictures in between trying to keep the newborn happy.
Which is all rather fitting for a postpartum clothing post, right? Mom who needs a shower…baby who comes before good lighting or accessorizing?!
Oh well. This is life right now, and I want to accept and embrace both the good and the messy (hair).
When I scheduled this Fix, I was hoping for a few pieces of clothing that I could feel good in, despite still needing to shed some baby weight and get back to my normal-to-me size. Specifically, I just need a handful of tops that do not call too much attention to my belly as I work to fix my diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation).
Not sure what Stitch Fix is? In short, Stitch Fix is a service in which stylists send you five items of clothes (possibly but not necessarily including accessories or shoes) for you to try on and then either keep or send back. Your personal stylists takes into account your preferences, sizes, style, and any additional notes you submit. You can try your first fix for free by signing up here, and subsequent fixes will charge you a $20 styling fee which will be deducted from the price of any clothing you decide to purchase. The clothes can be pricy, but are also high in quality and you try everything risk free– shipping is free and easy both ways! (They also have Stitch Fix for Men and Maternity options too!)
Postpartum Stitch Fix Unboxing
Tinsel :: Chapleen Cargo Jacket
I LOVE this jacket. It is definitely a keeper. I like how it feels tailored and fitted, instead of being baggy and just hanging off of me. On the live unboxing video, everyone was also really positive about the jacket too. I do not have anything like this already in my closet, so I will be keeping this one.
Soaked in Luxury :: Magalie V-Neck Pocket Knit Tee
This is one that I am not sure about. I asked for loose fitting tops when I scheduled this fix, and I think that my stylist sent exactly what I wanted. However, I’m not sure that it’s very flattering because of the way it draws attention to my belly. What do you think?
Verdict: I’m still deciding about this shirt. It is really soft and comfortable, and I really like the color. Maybe…
Tinsel :: Hattie Button Down Top
I really like this shirt. Again, I feel like my stylist really listened to what I was wanting and that this top is definitely fitting of my style profile. The shirt itself is long enough (very important to me since I’m six feet tall!) and is soft and comfortable. The colors are great, too, and it goes well with the jacket I know I’m keeping.
Coin 1804 :: Halem Cold Shoulder Collared Knit Top
This shirt just seemed awkward to me the minute I pulled it out of the box. The collar, buttons, and shoulder cut outs are just too many things going on for me. I have never had a shirt with shoulder cut outs, and that is still going to be the case.
Verdict: Send back.
Andrew Marc Performance :: Camilla Textured Jogger
These pants are soft, and I like the added details of the cuffs at the ankles and the waist. However, I just purchased a similar pair of pants from Target (love them!), and they are also too small anyway. I’m not looking to add pants to my wardrobe for a while until I lose a little weight.
Verdict: Send back.
What do you think? Which should I keep?
