Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box Review – July 2017
Stitch Fix is a monthly clothing and styling subscription service. When you initially sign up, you take an in-depth survey that asks you about your clothing size, personal style, and price preferences. Your stylist handpicks five items based on your preferences within the survey. The fee for this service is $20, and that includes free shipping and free returns. And 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!)
My items are reflective of my style and price preferences, so your Stitch Fix may be completely different!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

This is the invoice that was included. It shows in detail the items selected for me and the brands, sizes, and cost of each item. The total comes up to $194.50 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—that is a $91.50 savings! That is pretty fantastic!
Also included is this sheet with a note from my stylist, Candace. I love that she referenced the Pinterest board link I included in my review of my last box. It really adds to the personalization of the box and her selections for me! This sheet also provides suggestions on how to wear the pieces that were sent to me. I really love the visuals on this note too; it really is helpful and inspiring, but most of all shows the versatility of the pieces!
Navy Rinna dress by Gilli, size 3x—Cost to Keep $58
I swear, there aren’t many prints or styles as classic as polka dot—especially when it is a polka dot dress. Polka dots, stripes, and leopard prints are my neutrals. I feel they can pair well with almost anything! This empire waist baby doll dress is so flirty with the little opening on the back. The fabric is amazingly stretchy but thin enough to be worn in hot humid weather. The texture of the dress’s material feels like that of a light thermal shirt. My stylist, Candace, suggested I pair this with a red bandana. I took it a step further and paired the dress with a red faux leather biker jacket to show how it can translate to cooler weather months. I envision the last ensemble styled with tights and booties for a very crisp autumn weather look!
Alyssa Printed Pencil skirt by Brixon Ivy, size 3x—Cost to Keep $64
I have never met a pencil skirt that I didn’t like, and this skirt is no exception! The fabric is soft cotton material with a raised, almost quilted texture that is perfect for all seasons (which we all know is a big selling point with me. I am all for adaptability!). The skirt has ample stretch to hug your curves perfectly. The high waist and below the knee length are ideal and you will feel like Joan from Mad Men wiggling around in it. I also absolutely adore the vibrant yellow and the navy and cerulean blue damask print that contributes to the retro vibe of this skirt. I love that you could dress this skirt up with the top she chose or even pair it with a different clashing patterned shirt for a more casual and relaxed look.
Amity Peplum Detail Knit Top by Eloquii, size 22w—Cost to Keep $58
A few seasons ago, you could not go anywhere without seeing peplum everything. I have always been put off by peplum since I am a rather hippy gal, but I opted to be open minded and trying this shirt. The fabric is somewhat stretchy, but it is an incredibly structured piece. I absolutely love the off the shoulder cut and the gorgeous detail of the slits on the décolletage. My photographer (aka my cousin) remarked how it looked like something Wanda from John Water’s Cry Baby would wear, and I happily agreed with that observation. This top paired exquisitely well with the skirt (as my stylist suggested), but I can also see this being coupled with tight fit disco pant leggings or capris and a leather jacket if you want to go for that Bad Sandy look from Grease. This top really exceeded my expectations.
Black Juno Small Folded Clutch by Street Level — Cost to Keep $38
My stylist also picked out this very classic bag that will complement all your everyday outfits. The great thing about this purse too is that the chain strap can be removed and convert this from a shoulder bag to a chic clutch. It is like two purses for the price of one! I also like the separated zipper enclosures that keep your items organized and secure. This is a great staple piece and a fantastic value!
Tammi Dress by Pixley, size 3x—Cost to Keep $58
I mentioned in my feedback review to Stitch Fix that I wanted less basic pieces and more statement items. My stylist certainly ran with that comment and hooked me up with this youthful and kitschy sun dress. I love the vivid lemon print—it screams summertime! The chiffon like material of the dress is very light and breezy. One feature I like about this dress is the drawstring at the waist that you can adjust to show as much definition at the waistline as you desire and prefer. This darling dress could be made bold by styling with bright accessories and shoes along with a classic jean jacket, or it could be paired with strappy heeled sandals for a more sophisticated look. The neckline was my only issue with this dress. I liked it and found it flattering, but I would certainly have to go on a Holy Grail search for a new strapless bra if I intend to keep the dress.
Verdict: I enjoyed my first box with Stitch Fix, but this second box was more impressive! My stylist, Candace, really listened to my feedback in my comments and through my Pinterest board. It was evident how much thought she put into the choices she made for me; this box felt far more personalized to me and my style. I am excited to see what is in store for my future boxes!
