Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box Review – October 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 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.
