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!

Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box January 2018 Review

Stitch Fix Plus January 2018 Box 0005 - Invoice

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!

Stitch Fix Plus January 2018 Box 0006

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!

Beautiful Model! 🥀


Great month! I love the orange crochet dress and that skirt is so pretty. You look awesome in everything tho.

And YES- the struggle is real when you have muscular, body builder calves- I know- nothing fits me either in boots… dang.

Great review- you rock!


I love your reviews! They are the best on MSA.

In the snow, no less. That is dedication.

The orange dress is awesome. The skirt looks great.

A very good box.

Nicole Rieder

Awe, thank you, Nancy! You are too kind! That is a heck of a compliment since my peers are all pretty dang amazing!
I think I have re-adjusted to the cold! Come fall I was freezing all the time, but now I feel a-okay in the winter weather. So, the pics aren’t too bad. It just can be hard getting shots if it is snowing! hahaha
And thank you, those were my two fave pieces as well!


Ooooh you look great in everything!

Nicole Rieder

Awe thank you so much, Alex!

Maddie in PA

Nicole, Nicole, Nicole… I love your reviews so much but this month I send you extra special kudos for modeling a freaking sleeveless dress in the snow! You deserve the fashion equivalent to a Courage Under Fire badge for that alone – perhaps the prestigious Purple Lips medal?

I’ve also been reading you for too long to try to encourage you to keep the crochet dress because I know without a shadow of doubt that you’ve already sent it back… such a shame because it is amazing on you – everything from the color to the styling to how unique it is! Too bad that Stitch Fix sends out mostly clothing under their custom labels so you can’t find it elsewhere.

Am horrified by the Lucite-heeled booties but that’s just me. Don’t like/will never adopt the machine embroidery trend. What a terrible way to ruin a faux leather jacket. Or jeans, for that matter. Really like how that first dress fits you and, as usual, your styling makes the garment. Also, have I been oblivious or is that a new Nancy and Crossbones tat on your left wrist? You crack me up!

Finally, one day you will get a knock on your door and a middle aged woman will demand those red Doc Martens. Please don’t hate me when it happens… 😉

P.S. It’s time to let your subs know that you’re getting tinier and start getting 2X/one size smaller than you used to in certain items…

Nicole Rieder

Maddie in PA! Hello there!

Surprisingly it wasn’t too bad taking pics in the snow that day! I feel like my body is FINALLY adjusting to the cold. Though, this is the first year I have needed to get big ol bulky cardigans! I do love “the purple lips medal!” That is brilliant!

Maddie, I so would have kept that dress, but it was not the right size, sadly. It is precious, but I figured it would be pretty impossible to take in and I didn’t want to alter that gorgeous piece for the world. Plus, maybe someone else it will fit will benefit. You are right though, I do need to tell my stylists to probably send more 2xs. I am so all over the place in sizes now that I have a hard time gauging. It is a strange and surreal thing to have clothing be big on me. I know that probably sounds goofy!

I don’t mind the machine embroidered jackets, but I prefer to have a plain one due to versatility and getting more wear out of the piece. I do agree on embroidered jeans, though. No thanks for sure!

Bad Nancy has been on that wrist for roughly four years now. She turned four last month on the 13th come to think of it! She does look pretty fresh, though! My dear friend, Cara, tattooed that gem on me. It is far and away my favorite tattoo. I generally forget about the others since they are on my back. hahaha

I will have to hide those Doc Martens and play dumb when you ask for them! hahaha. They are probably the best $80 I ever spent tbh! I can understand wanting them too. I waited months to get them on sale from Doc Martens site! haha.

Thank you for all the great feed back as always! It does my heart good to know you enjoyed my review! Hope you are well!

Maddie in PA

I absolutely adore that you take the time to read and respond to all of our comments, Nicole! You are a treasure!

And “Bad Nancy”? Oh my gosh – that is the most exquisite name!

Hallie Gottlieb

That skirt is amazing. I love your style!

Nicole Rieder

Awe thank you, Hallie Gottlieb! I have to agree, it was adorable!

Jennifer Kelly

I really really really hope you got that skirt. It is flattering on you!

Nicole Rieder

Jennifer Kelly, I didn’t, but I wish I had! It is so cute! I am in between sizes and was afraid to get it in fear it may be too small in the spring.


I NEED that tie neck blouse. Were is it from?

Nicole Rieder

Thank you, June! It is from Forever21!


You look more and more stunning every month! If I ever have he finances to try this kind of box, Stitch Fix will be at the top of my list because of your reviews. Thank you a gazillion times!

Nicole Rieder

Awe, thank you so much, Kimberly! So sweet of you to say! And yes! If you can, treat yourself to Stitch Fix! It is an amazing box!


I loved every single item you tried on. What a winning box!

Nicole Rieder

Thank you, Sarah! Candace really is an amazing stylist! She hits it out of the park on a constant with her picks for me.


I love that orange dress on you. And the jacket. And the skirt. SF never sent me such fun items.

Nicole Rieder

Ks, thanks! I loved all the pieces this month. My stylist SLAYED! My suggestion is to create a pinterest if you haven’t to share with your stylists. I know providing that visual has helped a lot for me!


Wow, multiple pictures in the snow.

I am so cold-blooded, I am constantly seeking locations INSIDE for like one single dress during the winter. Have gone so far as to move the couch out of the way to stand in front of the one blank wall.

You get better stuff from Stitch Fix than I ever did. They acted like it was a burden to find brightly-colored clothing during the winter.

Nicole Rieder

I hear you on that! That is smart to move the couch. I feel like my lighting in the house is so poor. It just always seems easier shooting outside. I plan on painting my walls in my dining room come the spring and I sense a lot of pics will take place in there when it does happen! haha

Awe! My stylist really is awesome. She manages to pick the best stuff. She uses my pinterest board to help her with selecting pieces and I feel like it has been so beneficial! I always have these wild and bright 60s prints on my boards! haha


That orange dress is everything!!! Hopefully you can find it in the correct size!!!

Nicole Rieder

Thank you, Sherry! I hope that happens too because it was sooooo dreamy!

Noelle L

I thought the same thing. Maybe have a good seamstress on your rolodex for alterations? Great box and review!


Not a fan f the blacdk tights with the orange dress. But that flowered skirt is really cute

Nicole Rieder

Thanks, Lorie Lynn!


Does my heart good to hear others laminate about cankles. Sometimes I feel I am the only one. I have no ankles basically and so I have never felt great about boots. They never fit correctly.

Nicole Rieder

Oh, you aren’t alone, Michelle! I am built like an R.Crumb girl with thick legs. Finding boots to fit me has always been a challenge, I swear!


Nicole – question for you. I want to sign up, and we have similar styles. Do they offer a lot of retro and pinup-y looks? That’s my general style.

Nicole Rieder


I feel like what has benefited me is to create a pinterest and post anything you desire them to try to send your way or duplicate. That has helped a lot in the process. My stylist references it constantly and it really shows in what she sends me. I hope that suggestion helps you too!


I have the same problem with boots, and it sucks major lemons. Finding a pair like that and not being able to wear them is a tragedy. I would think about keeping the orange dress and altering it, though. It’s too cute to pass up.

Nicole Rieder

Right, Bex? Those booties were so dang cute. I tried zippering them and then got super scared I was going to break them, so gave up the fight. hahaha. Dang ankles! hahaha

I debated altering it, but I don’t know if I could with that crochet. I figure too another bodacious babe that it fits like a glove can have at it. We weren’t meant to be, sadly!


Holy cow!! SUCH a good box for you. That orange dress is literal perfection. Maybe you can have it altered to fit better at that the top because it would suck to let if go. Also, are you Polish? I ask because you used “dupa,” which made me LOL (for real). Fantastic review as always.

Nicole Rieder

Thanks, AmyM! I thought about altering it, but decided it may be too much of a risk with that crochet.

And heck yes, I am Polish! Glad you picked up on that. My grandma used to say dupa AAALLL THE TIME! Now, I do too! hahaha


I love it! It sure comes in handy; I try to slip it into conversation as much as possible!


I was just going to ask if she was Polish! “Dupa” made me laugh, too.

Nicole Rieder

I am! I am a quarter Polish. One of the best bumper stickers I have ever seen was of the Polish flag and it said “You bet your dupa, I’m Polish!” It gave me LIFE! hahahaha


I noticed that, too – half Polish here 🙂 It’s rare that someone puts the word “dupa” in writing!

Nicole Rieder

I am a quarter! I had to bust out dupa on a review at least once! hahaha


I was in my 20s when I realized that “dupa yash” is not a common phrase to the whole U.S.


I’m a size 8/10 and I feel your pain about the big calves.

Nicole Rieder

AMH, you truly get that the struggle is real!



Nicole Rieder

Thank you, Elise! I know! It is so cute!


You look STUNNING in that crocheted dress. Keep it and just get it taken in a little at the arms! Totally worth the alteration.

Nicole Rieder

Thank you so much, Elizabeth! I was tempted, but I opted against it. If only I could have exchanged it for the smaller size!


I need to follow you on IG for fashion or something because you look great in almost everything I see you in here… your Stitch Fix reviews are always my fave and I LOVE your floral outfit. Okay done. I like everything, keep it all (minus the boots obv).

Nicole Rieder

Thank you so much, Wendy! I am so glad you are enjoying my reviews and the pics. They are a blast to do! That skirt and dress were by far my faves this month. Candace really aced it!
