Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box Review + Coupon – November 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!

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 $209.50 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $96.50 total savings! That is like getting the Towne & Reese earrings and Truly Poppy shirt for FREE! That is a killer savings!
Also included is this sheet with a note from my stylist, Candace. She is always receptive to the feedback I provide and consults my Pinterest, which I appreciate! She even mentions how she noticed all the sequin items I added to my Pinterest board. What can I say? I am a sucker for glitz, especially during the holiday season! Candace’s selections are considerately made and are dang near perfect. She also provides helpful styling tips for each piece she picks out for me. The visuals are one of my favorite details. They are such a useful resource to use in styling outfits. It is incredibly helpful and inspiring, but also shows the versatility and value of the items she selects for me!
Shanel Sequin Kimono by Honey Punch, Size 3x — Cost to Keep $68
Candace wasn’t playing when she said she was including a sequined item. This is the motherload: the Dorothy Zbornak special! When you have this kimono on, you will find yourself singing “Miami, You Got Style” while eating a slab of cheesecake in two seconds flat! This flashy piece has limited stretch and is cut to be oversized. The kimono has an inside lining to ensure you do not get jabbed by any sequins. I paired this up with a black mini dress, silver retro hoop earrings, and my velvet over the knee boots from Shoe Dazzle (review coming soon!). This kimono would pair great with dress pants, a low cut top, and booties. Even though my life goal of looking like a giant disco ball is achievable with this jacket, I had to pass on this one. I did not find it to be a terribly adaptable piece even though it is stunning.
Jared Lace Detail Cap Sleeve Blouse by TRULY POPPY, Size 3x – Cost to Keep $58
I have a few similar style tops like this already with lace yoke detail. The beauty of a shirt like this is you can pair it with a skirt like the one that Candace selected for me or with casual skinny leg jeans, flats, and a fitted blazer. The material is very lightweight and could be worn in warmer months and with layers this time of year. However, I had two issues with this top. The first issue is I would have to wear a strapless bra with this since my bra is visible on the back. The second is this top is a bit big on me especially in the back. Possibly choosing one size down would help, but since I already have similar pieces to this one I am going to have to pass.
Danielle Velvet Skirt by Michel Studio, Size 24W- Cost to Keep $68
I have made a point of telling all of my stylists to please send velvet pieces my way and Candace sent me two. She is awesome like that. I love pencil skirts and velvet fabric, so this is a perfect marriage of two of my favorite things. The fit is fantastic and has ample stretch. I also adore the flirty slit detail on the back of the skirt. This pairs fantastically with the TRULY POPPY lace yoke shirt she sent me as well. This skirt would look fantastic with a dressy pussybow detail top or even your favorite band shirt, jean jacket and heeled booties for an edgier casual look. I would have kept it, but oddly enough I just recently bought a similar black velvet skirt before receiving this box. Just goes to show how on point Candace is with her selections, though, right?
Kara Velvet Dress by Beauport, Size 3x – Cost to Keep $78
This was my favorite piece of the bunch! This dress takes me back to middle school dances in the 90s. I could see Angela Chase from My So-Called Life wearing this dress with black tights, combat boots, and a big over-sized flannel jacket. It has such a grunge/riot grrrl era vibe. I love the burn out flower detail on this velvet dress; it is absolutely stunning! The jade color is equally gorgeous. The dress’s fabric and lining have tremendous stretch and it is incredibly comfortable to wear. I went the casual route in styling this dress with my favorite studded booties and Valley Vintage hat from the Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer, but this could be glammed up easily with black tights, cute open toe platform heels, and a black faux fur coat for any holiday party. I recently purchased a green velvet dress or else I would have given this dress a forever home in my closet.
Zaza Pave Double Celestial Earrings by Towne & Reese — Cost to Keep $34
The problem with some holiday-themed accessories is that they are so obviously themed that they can’t be worn for other occasions. I love these earrings because they can be worn all year round. They actually remind me of Glitter and Gold Jem. They are truly, truly, truly outrageous! In addition, they have a mid-century modern aesthetic that appeals to me. These gorgeous crystal, gold plated costume earrings have posts and are not clip ons, which is a plus. They are a Stitch Fix exclusive design which is why I am deciding to keep them as well. At a mere $14 after styling fee, how could I resist their charms?
Verdict: I loved that all these pieces in this month’s box scream holiday party! I was beyond pleased with the copious amounts of velvet, sequins, and glitz to choose from in this box. I always appreciate how my stylist, Candace, really listens to my feedback on the return surveys and also through my Pinterest board. Her choices are incredibly thoughtful. I have said it before, but stylists like her make Stitch Fix such a fantastic service! Paying the $20 styling fee for pieces personally selected for me, some that are even exclusive to Stitch Fix, each month is priceless. No sifting through websites or going to the mall on a busy weekend night. Especially this time of year around the holidays – no thank you! You just can’t go wrong with Stitch Fix!
