After taking the last four months off from receiving a new ‘fix’ from Stitch Fix, I decided it might be a fun way to treat myself postpartum.
Since my last fix was a maternity fix, and they’ve also made some updates since (like adding SHOES!), I was excited to see what my stylist put together for me.
In my note, I let my stylist know that I would be about 1 month postpartum for this fix, so flowy tops would be appreciated, as would anything (i.e., shorts/pants) with an elastic waistband (I’ve been wearing my pairs of these shorts nonstop so far this summer!). Here’s what I got…and sorry for the crappy iPhone pics. It was sort of a miracle that I got enough time to snap these pictures as it was, let alone attempt with my nicer camera!
Market & Spruce Hani Halter Knit Top
I wanted to badly to totally love and keep this top. As soon as I saw the pattern/colors, I loved it. And the neckline was super flattering, too (I love anything that shows off the shoulders well), but as for the way it fit everywhere else, it was just sort of ‘meh.’ I’m not sure…I think maybe I would have liked it better if it were a little longer? I liked and appreciated the fact that it was more on the flowy/relaxed side, but when it just hung there I couldn’t really get it to look right. This one was a RETURN.
Papermoon Sessilee Split Neck Top – $54.00
This top was really not doing me any favors. While I liked the detailing on the neckline, that was pretty much it. The fit was weird (again, wide and short) and the material was too sheer for my liking (I prefer to not have to layer for shirts like this unless absolutely necessary!). I also didn’t really think it was worth the price at all, so this was also a RETURN.
Pixley Wesly Lattice Back Knit Top – $54.00
Nooo, no no no. I could not think of one reason I would wear a top like this anywhere in my near future. Not to mention, I absolutely loathe strapless bras and avoid them at all costs (especially while breastfeeding…nooo way!). It was also a bit big and definitely didn’t fit right so this was immediately a RETURN.
Kut from the Kloth Louise Linen Drawstring Wide Leg Pant – $78.00
Now theeeeese…THESE I got excited about! I already told you guys about my love for wide leg linen pants, and these 100% fit the bill. I love the olive color, which will be perfect for spring/summer/fall, and the length was actually perfect. The waistband was elastic but also has a button closure…and full disclosure, I’m not quite able to fully button it yet without giving myself a major muffintop. But I’m hopeful that I’ll get there eventually.
But even if I don’t, you can’t tell anyways, right? These were a KEEPER!
DV8 – Abbey D’Orsay Flats – $65.00
I was really excited to see that I had some shoes in my fix! I loved the style of them (flats = perfection), but they just were not very comfortable at ALL. I knew if I kept them they’d never get the appropriate amount of wears, so I decided it’d be best to make them a RETURN.

I haven’t been totally thrilled with my fixes lately, so I’m undecided on if/when I’ll do another delivery. They’re always so exciting to receive in the mail, but of course, it’s always better when you get great stuff. I know I need to be better about my notes to my stylist, too, so maybe I’ll have to work on being more specific? Who knows!
Anyone else tried Stitch Fix lately? Receive anything awesome?
