Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box Review + Coupon – January 2018
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 as well as free returns. 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!

Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box January 2018 Review
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 $277.75 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $119.25 total savings! That is like getting the Sole Society Lucite Heel Booties for FREE!
Also included is this sheet with a note from my stylist, Candace. I truly appreciate how Candace applies my feedback and uses my Pinterest in styling me! She totally gets me! She states in the note she included the booties and faux leather jacket in this box due to pins I have posted and the crochet dress because I had mentioned I love warm orange colors. Her attention to detail constantly shows in her picks for me. Plus, she provides fantastic styling tips that not only inspire me but also shows the versatility of the pieces she selects for me.
Reed Bell Sleeve Dress by Le Lis, Size 3x – Cost to Keep $68
Initially, I wasn’t sure how I felt about the combination of the structured, formal stripes with the bell sleeves, but once I had this dress on my doubt disappeared. The fabric is incredibly stretchy and hugs the curves perfectly. The bell sleeves pair amazingly well with the A-line cut of the dress. I styled this with my “go-to” western buckle style belt and shoes as well back opaque tights. This dress would also look fantastic with fishnets or patterned tights with open-toed platform heels for a romantic look.
Marlana Crochet Dress by Q&A, Size 3x – Cost to Keep $78
THIS DRESS! As soon as I saw it I squealed out loud! It is absolutely beautiful. You bet your dupa I thought of Stevie Nicks when I first laid my eyes on this dress. DUH, right? The pumpkin pie orange crochet overlay is gorgeous and extremely unique. Typically you see crochet styles in creams, whites, and blacks… but this warm burnt orange? Not too often! The fabric has ample stretch and is very comfortable. I also like that this dress is sleeveless because you can wear it all year! In the spring and summer months, this would look amazing paired with wedges, heels, or sandals along with a floppy hat and oversized sunglasses. In the fall and winter, this pairs great with tights, booties, cardigans, jean jackets, or faux leather biker jackets like the one Candace also picked for me. The only negative for me was that the dress was too big on me, especially in the arms and chest. I was actually going to exchange this for a smaller size, but sadly all the other bodacious babes scooped up this stunner in size 2x before I could!
Jocelyn Embroidered Faux Leather Jacket by Coffeeshop, Size 3x – Cost to Keep $78
Embroidered faux and real leather items have been a big trend this fall/winter season. This faux leather biker jacket features lovely embroidered flowers on the lapel and sleeve. It is definitely a wonderful way to spruce up a plain jacket, but I also like the contrast of the tough biker jacket with the soft floral design. This jacket pairs gorgeously with the crocheted dress Candace selected. The jacket is a great statement piece and will pair effortlessly with casual jeans and a t-shirt like Candace said in her note. The only negative for me is due to the floral design this item will be less versatile than a plain biker jacket. The jacket was a tad too big on me as well, so I had to pass.
Eve Floral Skirt by Pixley, Size 3x – Cost to Keep $64
When I initially saw this skirt, I couldn’t help but see this glimmer of spring around the corner and smile! Living in the tundra, you sometimes forget that the weather gets warm again around here! I was concerned that this skirt may not translate to winter weather, but I proved myself wrong by pairing it with my red Doc platforms, black tights, and a sheer black pussy bow accent top. In the spring and summer, this skirt would look amazing with the same red shoes, a yellow off the shoulder pinup style top, basket purse, and some fruit statement jewelry. Also, this skirt has ample stretch and hits at a flattering length. It is adorable and easy to wear due to how comfortable it is. Two thumbs up for this skirt for sure!
Dinah Suede Lucite Heel Bootie by Sole Society, Size 9.5 – Cost to Keep $109
These glorious retro Lucite heel booties make me want to hop in a cage and go-go dance the night away! I literally said, “OMG!” when I unboxed these babies! The suede material is so soft and these boots are so incredibly well made. The only bummer is I couldn’t zip these sweet booties from the goddesses all the way up due to my THICK calves. Anybody that reads my reviews is well aware that I have Barney Rubble feet with a crazy high instep and beefy ankles/calves. The struggle is real, you guys! Regardless, Candace nailed it with this choice. Had they fit me properly, I would have kept these gorgeous booties. They would have looked amazing with the crochet dress and jacket she included, but I also envision wearing them with a black bell sleeved top and my faux leather mini or with a vintage t-shirt and my spandex disco pants. Sigh, all the possibilities, I tell ya!
The Verdict: Well, my stylist, Candace, aced it again! I loved last month’s box, but I especially loved the selections this month even more! Candace truly gets what appeals to me! I sound redundant every month, but I am constantly impressed with how well she seems to understand my style preferences. I appreciate that she uses my feedback and Pinterest to assist her in making the choices she does for me. Her thoughtfulness never goes unnoticed with me. I definitely would have purchased the crochet dress and booties she chose for me, but sadly there were fit issues with both items. I am still blown away by how great this box was! The $20 styling fee is a great value and a bargain for such a personalized service. I cannot recommend Stitch Fix enough!
