Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box Review – June 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Stitch Fix Plus June 2017 Women's Clothing Box

Stitch Fix very recently introduced plus sizes to their styling service. This is very exciting since all brands and subscription box options should be size inclusive as far as I am concerned; fashion is for everyone!

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!

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 $184 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—that is an $88 savings. Not too shabby.

I am partial to the packaging and that great seafoam/turquoise used. This card was included giving a handy run down on how Stitch Fix works.

Also included is this sheet with a friendly note from my stylist, Andrea, wishing me a happy vacation (how sweet!) and also providing suggestions on how to wear the pieces that were sent to me.  I really like the visuals and that it includes multiple suggestions to show the versatility of the pieces included.

Hari Lattice Detail Top by August Mist, size 3x – Cost to Keep $48

When I saw this top initially I was not sure if it was my speed; it immediately made me think of one of my style inspirations– my best friend, Jen. Jen has this awesome 70s style full of sterling silver bangles, floppy witchy Stevie Nicks hats, vintage band t-shirts, high waist jeans, and turquoise jewelry up the wazoo. She inspired me so much that I went and dug out my lone floppy hat and paired it with a chunky sea foam necklace and my favorite high waist dark denim jeans. I really loved the vivid yellow color of the top and the retro flower print that complimented it so perfectly. The fabric of this top was very breezy too. This outfit is perfect for a cooler summer evening. And have I mentioned I love the bell sleeves on this because I do!

Mariane Bar Back Detail Knit Top by Laila Jayde, size 3x—Price to Keep $44

I love stretchy form fitting materials, so this top was a win in that respect. It was a bit long on me, but that can be easily remedied with a high waist skirt to add definition. I liked the peek a boo cut out in the back; it is very sassy and cute. I really am fond of pairing olive green with gold; so I accessorized with some gold glitter sunglasses, vintage gold foil purse, a necklace from my previously mentioned friend, Jen, and some leopard print flats (you can’t go wrong with leopard print). This is an outfit I would wear to work and then later on a date with my boyfriend. This top can be dressed up or down and I really like that it is so versatile, but I feel like I have found similar tops for lower prices in the past too at chain retailers like JC Penney and Forever21.

Josepha Lace Detail Knit Top by August Mist, size 3x—Cost to Keep $44

I live in striped tops and dresses; especially black and white striped anything. There is something classic about a striped top and depending on how you style it you can exude the grace and charm of Audrey Hepburn, the sensuality of Brigitte Bardot, or the effortless cool of Joey Ramone. This outfit is a typical mainstay for me. This top is a take on the standard black and white striped shirt, but with ultra romantic lace sleeve accents. I brought a kitschy vibe to my look with the calf length red a-line skirt, red and white saddle shoes, cat eye glasses, and red scarf. This top was a bit bigger and boxier on me than I like, so I paired it with a higher waist skirt to define my waist a bit more. The cherry on top for me was my faux leather jacket decorated in pins. This top is so versatile though, you can pair it with black cigarette style pants and accent heels (I would go with a red or turquoise for a pop of color) with a blazer at the workplace or with denim capris and boat shoes for a classic nautical summer look.

Chan Wrap Front Top by Honey Punch, size 3x— Cost to Keep $48

I will talk about the pros about this top before I get into the cons. The pro for me was the material is very light. This is an ideal top to wear in the office in the summer months. I wore it as a cardigan, and here comes the con— because I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to wear it as a wrap shirt. Fashion can be complicated and complex, but I could not figure out how to tie the shirt. Maybe it is simply user error on my part, but going the route of wearing it as a cardigan seemed to be my best option. If it is worn as intended, wrap tops are very flattering and it could be a great staple piece! I see it pairing well with a cute floral print skirt and strappy heels like Andrea suggested!

Jenna Skinny Jean with Released Hem by Dear John, size 24—Cost to Keep $88

You may be wondering why I have no pictures of myself in the coral/red jeans that were included. Sadly, I couldn’t fit them over my behind. It was hilariously tragic. I debated having my photographer aka boyfriend document this, but I figured I would spare you guys on that one. I will say the jeans were made of a nice stretchy material, but one would need to size up in them. I am usually a twenty four in jeans across the board and these pants didn’t remotely come close to being able to be buttoned. Had they fit, they could have looked great with the striped August Mist top they sent me or even a sleeveless white collared shirt tied at the mid- section and a denim jean jacket.

Verdict: This was my first box with Stitch Fix, and though it had its hits and misses, I am eager to see what they offer next month. I really love that the packaging includes tips on how to style each item you receive in more than one way so that you can seek those items out in your own closet and get inspired and creative! Most of the pieces they sent me are great staple items to build one’s wardrobe around, which is great, but I am hoping to see more bold statement pieces come my second box.

What do you think of Stitch Fix’s new offering for plus sizes? Have you tried it yet?

  1. Where do you get all your fabulous accessories? I especially love the cat eyes and the saddle shoes. Do tell. I have just signed up to give Stitch Fix a try and I so enjoyed your ever so descriptive review. I suspect I won’t last long with the subscription because I (like you) think I will be able to find similar pieces at lower prices (yes I’m such a bargain hunter) but it’s going to be so fun to see what someone else thinks I should wear based on my profile answers. Thanks again for the awesome review. And don’t forget to reveal your source for those saddle shoes 🙂

    • Bargain Hunters Unite!

      Yes, I am always looking for the best deals myself. I love clearance racks, flea markets, and thrift stores like whoa! The great thing about Stitch Fix is they apply that $20 stylist fee to anything you buy, so it can make certain pieces well worth it.

      And thank you, Tammie, for the kind words on my review too! As for my glasses, they are from http://www.bonlok.com. The saddle shoes are from Payless.com, but they were originally white and black. I got red shoe paint from Amazon and painted over the black because I could not find red saddle shoes for the life of me! Thanks again for reading my review!

  2. Not sure where to post this but there is a $25 stitch fix credit for today only I believe.
    It’s on T-Mobile Tuesdays, so it’s only for their customers unless you can grab a code from someone else!
    Looks like it covers the styling fee as normal + extra $5 but you must give credit card in case you buy more than that w/ your delivery!
    Limit one per customer though(even if multiple lines, must be seperate stitch fix accounts – so no stacking 🙁 )

    Looking forward to trying, and wanted the subworld to know about the nice freebie! <3

  3. You are so cute and the outfits look amazing on you. Keep up the great reviews. I look forward to reading your reviews…….

    • Thank you so much! I am really glad you are enjoying the reviews!

  4. You look amazing in everything and have a great sense of style- and a good photographer! You will have to update us on what you keep!

    • Thank you, Candie! I really appreciate the kind words and you enjoying the review. I didn’t keep anything this time around, but I sure was tempted!

  5. you are so cute! your style and attitude are inspiring:)

    • Awe thank you, Windy! I really appreciate theverything sweet words and am glad you are liking the reviews!

  6. WOW!!! You are absolutely adorable and have a fantastic sense of style. Everything you put together looks wonderful on you because of how amazing your eye is.

    • Awe, thank you so much, Treat_Choself!

  7. I’m so relieved to find out I’m not the only one who is flumoxxed by wrap tops (or dresses.) Seriously, I’m hopeless with them, which makes me sad because I love them.

    Anyway, I love both tops but that yellow one is killer.

    • Thank you, Siobhan! I was feeling like such a ding dong trying to get that wrap top on. I feel good knowing I am I oodles company; I was so baffled!

      That yellow top is so cute. I am used to fabrics that are more snug and slinky, but that fabric is perfection especially for humid summer weather. It is such a cute top!

  8. Omg I LOVE your saddle shoes, too cute!! I love that whole outfit with the jacket and shoes. The yellow shirt is very cute and summery too!

    • Thanks, Sara! I painted the red on those saddle shoes myself. I am a big fan of saddle shoes and oxfords.

      And yes! That yellow shirt is so cute. The bell sleeves on it are such and neat touch!

  9. I seriously think you could make any outfit look fantastic. Love how you style.

    • Thank you so much, Zo! I have so much fun with it!

  10. They look great! You wear them well and I’m totally jealous of your style.

    • Awe shucks, thank you, Bcg!

  11. I love your reviews. Off to find that yellow top now.

    • Thank you so much, KS! That yellow shirt is fantastic. I hope you do get it!

  12. Love your review and style!

    • Thank you so much, Sheri!

  13. Hi! I like that your stylist wrote some of her suggestions to give you an idea of where she was going by selecting the items she did and how to match them. I find that really helpful, as I personally lack creativity to style out of my comfort zone. I am not sure about that first yellow top (most likely coz Im partial against the color as it doesnt suit my skin tone) but I do love the style and the jeans you wore it with. You look amazing in that green top/black skirt outfit!

    • Hey, thanks, Anie! I love that feature so much and even looking in instagram hash tags to see how people wear their items. Stitch Fix encourages you to try the items on with things you already own which I love too. That can renew and freshen up older pieces, so I am all for that too!

      And thank you! I loved that green top too because it is so versatile. It was kind of a cotton spandex bled and had a fantastic stretch to it as well.

  14. I hope you keep/kept the yellow top and olive top, they look fab on you! The wrap top is, I suspect, one like my parents found me at a boutique outside of Chicago – and I can also attest to user error. As it was literally complicated enough that I had to re-remember the button locations each time, it went to a better place – Goodwill!

    • Thank you, Bluenillie! I was fond of both those tops, but opted against them because I had a trip coming up.

      Yes! That wrap didn’t even have buttons, just string that seemed to loop through a hole. I was so confused by the dang thing! Haha

      • Thanks, Marina! That is so cool of you to share that information!

        • No problem, just hope I can help more get the cool deal 😎
          Oh and anyone w the app has ubtil the 17 to redeem it woohoo 🙌
          I haven’t yet just cause I was nervous about the card thing – how long do u have to decide to pay or ship back?

          • I believe you have five days at max before you have to return the items.

  15. You are gorgeous and look fabulous in everything! I love that yellow top with the necklace. The bar back too with the necklace and your skirt. Love the striped shirt and how you accessorized AND that red skirt with your jacket. They should pay you to model. You made very piece look lovely. Fantastic review!

    • Alex, thank you so much for all the love! I am a big accessory fiend and this was definitely fun to work on. The pieces sent were so cute that Stitch Fix sent— they made my job easy in that respect. Thanks again!

      • You really enhanced every item with your personal style and because you just sparkle from within. I can’t wait for more reviews. I’m always looking for cute plus sizes clothes and right now I can’t stop collecting rompers to survive in this heat.

        • Awwwwwe! Thank you! What you said made my day and I am glad you are liking the reviews!

          Rompers are so cute! I have a hard time with them because of my long torso, but I think they look so adorable on others!
