Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box Review – October 2017

Stitch Fix Plus September 2017 Women's Plus Clothing Subscription Box

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 piece.  The total comes up to $297.25 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $125.75 total savings! That is almost like getting the Rebel Wilson skirt for free. That is an excellent deal!

Also included is this sheet with a note from my stylist, Candace. She is always receptive to the feedback I provide. I love that she references my Pinterest; it really is evident in the thoughtful pieces she selects for me! She totally gets me and understands my love for bold retro prints and glitzy metallic and velvets! She also provides great styling tips for each piece she picks out for me. The visuals are one of my favorite details. They are such a useful reference to use in styling outfits. It really is helpful and inspiring, but most of all shows the versatility and value of the pieces!

Julien Mesh Trim Dress by Le Lis, Size 3x— Cost to Keep $74

I was hesitant about this dress when I initially unboxed it, but my attitude changed once I tried it on. As soon as I put this dress on, I knew how I wanted to style it. It’s October and I’m a Scorpio, so the witchy babe vibes were bound to be abundant in this ensemble! I love the earthy, rich fall color palette in shades of aubergine, taupe, grey, mustard yellow, cornflower blue, and olive in the retro floral print on this dress. The polka dot mesh yolk detail is gorgeous and the sleeves drape perfectly. The fabric of this dress is very light and breezy. This flowy dress makes me want to twirl around to “Gypsy” by Fleetwood Mac. I had to style this dress with my new go-to studded Kalene boots from Shoe Dazzle, floppy brimmed hat, double buckle western belt, and fur collar my mom bought me a few years back from JC Penney for $5 (speaking of witches, my mom is like some magical bargain shopping sorceress, I swear.)! This dress cast a spell on me and my photographer (aka my cousin), so much so that she bought me it for my upcoming birthday next month. I am getting verklempt just thinking about the gesture! This dress is DEFINITELY a keeper!

Libry Velvet Gem Loafer by Sole Society, Size 9.5—Cost to Keep $79

I wanted to show the Le Lis dress styled in multiple ways and felt it looked PERFECT paired with these gorgeous velvet loafers and a black glittery turban from Pinup In A Pack (review coming soon!)! Velvet is a big trend this fall season and I for one am completely onboard. I recently purchased a few velvet dresses this season and a pair of booties, so of course, I swooned when I laid my eyes on these babies! Not only are they stunning, but from just trying them on they fit great! They are comfortable and wide enough for my Barney Rubble feet. These shoes can be paired perfectly with a patterned dress like the one I am wearing or bring a flash of color and pizzazz to a plain LBD! These would jazz up a pair of tight black skinny jeans and a sweater easily! Sadly, the price tag was a bit high for me, so I couldn’t put these in my keep pile.

Tilly Knit Dress by Beauport, Size 24W—Cost to Keep $84

This dress is the epitome of fall with its deep, jewel-toned chevron print. The combo of that pumpkin pie orange, deep burgundy and dark purple are gorgeous together! The cotton fabric has some stretch, but the cut of this mid-calf A-line dress is incredibly flattering. I opted to pair this beautiful dress with my same tried and true accessories from the last ensemble along with a leopard print faux fur coat. This styling is further proof for my theory that leopard print is neutral and can be paired with other prints flawlessly!

Mikalia Faux Suede Skirt by Rebel Wilson X Angels, Size 24W—Cost to Keep $138

I made a point of asking most of my subscription box stylists to provide a piece from Rebel Wilson’s line, so I was absolutely elated to get this magical, silver pleated skirt in my box! I am even more smitten with this piece than I was with her Rebel bomber jacket featured in my last Trunk Club review! This skirt is buttery soft and I love the below-the-knee length. This is a perfect item to wear for all your holiday parties. It would have made sense to style it as though I was hitting up a winter holiday party, dripping in jewels and furs, but I wanted to go for a more Halloween themed look!  Halloween is my favorite holiday, so it was a must! I paired this skirt with a vintage Halloween shirt I found on ebay, black faux fur jacket, my go-to Shoe Dazzle boots, favorite belt, and turban from Pinup In A Pack (review coming soon!). This just goes to show that this skirt is festive for various holidays! I would have loved to add this gorgeous skirt to my wardrobe, but sadly the ticket price was a bit too steep for me at this time!

Medina Lace Overlay Knit Top by Status, Size 3x—Cost to Keep $48

Candace suggested this piece with the silver Rebel Wilson skirt, but to keep up with this underlying Stevie Nicks theme I went with leather and lace paired together. This top was slightly oversized on me in the armholes and chest. It is longer than the picture shows since I tucked the top into my faux leather Lane Bryant skirt. The material has a nice stretch and I do like the mock turtleneck look of this sleeveless top. This top would look great at the work place with a pencil skirt or dress pants, but also could easily dress up a pair of jeans with a cute blazer and heels outside of the office. This top is cute, but out of an extraordinary selection of items in this box, it was my least favorite.

Verdict: HOLY SMOKES! My stylist, Candace, really hit it out of the park with this month’s box! This may be my favorite Stitch Fix box yet! I truly appreciate and am impressed with how attentive she is in styling me. She really pays attention to details in my feedback and through using my Pinterest I provide, and it shows! She is dressing me the way she thinks I would want to be and not how she thinks I should be. So, thank you, Candace! Stylists like you make a box like Stitch Fix such a fantastic value! Honestly, if I could keep this entire box, I would because it is absolutely perfect! Why go to the mall when you can subscribe to a tailored and personalized service like Stitch Fix? You can save yourself the stress of a mall on the weekend and the gas money as well! I can’t endorse this service enough.

  1. That chevron dress was so gorgeous on you that I pinned the pic to my StitchFix board. I cannot say enough about how amazing my first three fixes have been. I asked for my next one to be all about holiday parties and date nights. I’m looking forward to some splashy pieces!

  2. Wow That silver skirt was made for you!!

    • Awe thanks, Michelle! I loved that dress!

  3. OH MY GOODNESS! That first dress is quite possibly the most awesome dress I’ve seen in a long while! The only thing as neat (though in a different vein) I’ve seen is modcloth’s unprecedented panache dress with the most hilarious print I’ve ever seen in my life! (it’s like historic portraits of the royal family … but replaced with cats.) I just wish I could afford all these neato dresses!

    Anyway, yeah, that first dress is WOW! The second dress is pretty gorgeous too! Those are my favorites out of this batch. Amazing picks from your stylists for sure! You look AMAZING in them!

    • Thanks, Vanessa! Glad you have been enjoying this review and my styling! This box was a great one to work with.

      I don’t wanna sound dense, but I am not sure what it looks like? Hahaha. I do see bra strap is exposed, unfortunately.

  4. These items are awesome, especially once you style them, but I just need to throw this out there. Take a look at the back of the first dress and see where one of the dark dots lie on the bottom middle area. Maybe it is just that position, but it looks like a…yeah… anyway, everything else looks amazing, loving the jewel toned chevron dress, but that knit shirt has to be my favorite, kind of a wow piece.

  5. Nicole, like others I hope you get to keep it all! You exude such confidence and happiness in all of these pictures! N I love that you take the time to really style a full Look with the items you’re sent! Even though my style is different, I absolutely adore your style because you, like me, take your own style and mesh it with current trends to create truly unique looks. I think this is the best Fix (fitting the reviewer’s style) I have ever seen on here. Keep rocking your witchy ways, bodacious babe!

    • AH, thank you so much! This box was so much fun to do. My stylist Candace really is amazing at what she does. But she really blew me away with this box.

      I love putting together outfits! It is so much fun for me. I am a sucker for themed ensembles too. Key for me is always to wear the clothes and not let the clothes wear me. Clothes are always a way to express yourself. There are certain trends I will avoid, but man… this fall with all the velvet is everything to me.

      I really appreciate all your kind words and for checking out my review! It truly means so much to me! <3

  6. I am hoping you find a way to keep the entire box. Everything looked great on you and is obvious you felt comfortable in everything. I also love reading your reviews. Especially about your mother being a shopping sorceress.

    • Thank you, Connie. I reluctantly sent most of that box back. Man, did that suck. haha. I am going to be thinking about those velvet shoes for a long time. hahaha.

      OMG. My mom is unreal when it comes to shopping. She will find me stuff at places like Kohl’s or JC Penney’s for next to nothing. She really has a knack for it. And she always has coupons. She is a gem!

      And thank you for checking out my reviews! It means a lot to me.

  7. That silver skirt is fierce. My favorite piece this month. Love how you styled it.

    • Thank you, Zo! That skirt was everything. Can you tell I am ready for Halloween like whoa?

  8. Ahhh, Nicole! You radiate such coolness and beauty! Everything always looks so good on you and you style it SO WELL! I especially love that pleated skirt!

    • Awwwwwwwe, Marne! Thank you so much! I am blushing because I always love reading your reviews. So dang sweet!

      And omg. That skirt. It was so cute! I just wanted to twirl around in it all over my house! hahaha

  9. Nicole, I used to have that Shake Rattle & Roll shirt! I found it at a thrift shop & I think I eventually donated it back to another. Maybe you’re even wearing the exact shirt I used to own!

    No wonder I’ve been enjoying your style so much in these last few months since you started posting reviews! 😉

    • Awe, Marion! That would be too cool if I had your shirt! It is one of my prized possessions. Kind of killed me to cut the neck off on it, but it was way too snug around my neck!

      Style sisters from another mister! I am really glad you have been enjoying my reviews. It really means a lot to me!

  10. I LOVE the pleated skirt, it’s very pretty, $138 is really high though for a skirt! The other pieces look very 70s to me. I love how you styled the first dress with the faux fur collar!

    • I won’t lie. I am going to be keeping my eye on that Rebel Wilson Angels X line in hopes for some of it to go down. There is a GORGEOUS green faux leather skirt in the line I am ga-ga for as well. And thank you! That outfit was my favorite by far!

  11. I think we should chip in to buy you this box for your birthday! Seriously though you look gorgeous in everything!

    • Awe, Liddy! Thank you so much. This box was so easy to style because the pieces selected were stunning. It made my job easy… other than having to send some of that back! Oh, the agony! hahaha. Thanks again for checking out my review!

  12. Wow I am in love with those shoes! This is a great box for you, everything is totally your style

    • Thank you, Elise! Those shoes were so gorgeous. I am pining for them as I type. haha. But yes, this box was a home run for sure!

  13. The Tilly Knit Dress by Beauport looks especially nice on you.

    • I totally agree with you. You look killer in that dress.

      • Thanks, Jamie! A few of my friends that do Stitch Fix got it as well and I really can’t wait to see how it looks on them. I feel like it is just a really flattering style and cut.

    • Thank you so much, Teresa! I really loved that one too.

  14. I LOVE the pictures this time. All the outfits really look fantastic on you! Great review!

    • Thank you so much, Ariana! This was probably my favorite Stitch Fix yet! It was so perfect. Thanks for checking out my reviews!

  15. You clearly had a lot of fun taking these photos. It seems like they did a good job picking things that fit your sense of style and were flattering — at least it seems that way to me based on scrolling through the pictures. (I wish I had had that kind of luck with Stitch Fix!)

    I like the chevron dress a lot. I would buy that if it came in my size.

    • Thanks, Ragan! I was really inspired by this box. I really felt like it was super tailored to my tastes and what I have been obsessing over lately.

      If you have Stitch Fix or any subscription box, share your pinterest with your stylist. I can’t suggest that enough. I sometimes include pics of myself in them too so they get a feel for who I am and how I dress. And share instagram too!

      Thank you! I am wishing I could have kept that glorious dress. It is so cute on!
