Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box Review – February 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!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box February 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 $236.50 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $105.50 total savings! That is like getting the Marlon mock neck knit top and Delano open cardigan FREE!
As always, this handy sheet with a sweet note from my stylist, Candace, was included. I always appreciate the styling tips on this sheet; they are so inspiring! Candace is incredibly thoughtful in her selections and consistently uses my Pinterest to help her in styling me monthly. She mentions that she included the plaid pants this month due to some of my newer pins. I appreciate that she references it to curate the immensely personalized boxes she sends my way month after month!
Also, I received this ad about the intimate pieces you can request in your Stitch Fix box as an “extra!’ I was unaware that Stitch Fix offered this feature with their service! The more you know, right?
Ciaran Studded Detail Dress by City Chic, Size 24 – Retail Value $118
This dress gave me equal Stevie Nicks and Little House on the Prairie vibes. No complaints there, though. I think I could have stood to go down to a size 22 because the chest was a tad baggy, but I actually liked the looseness of this dress. The material isn’t terribly stretchy, but the fit is rather relaxed. The floral print and color scheme of the deep burgundy with orange and blue accents on the flowers is the embodiment of 70s era prints. Like Candace said, the stud details are the modern accents that remind you this is not a vintage dress you found in your mom’s attic. All in all, I liked the dress, but the price tag was a bit too steep for me.
Delano Open Cardigan in Burnt Orange by Skies Are Blue, Size 3x – Retail Value $54
Living in the tundra, I have accumulated quite the collection of cardigans for every kind of weather. Most of my collection includes lighter fabric cardigans, but in the last few months I have been freezing my dupa off! This was even in early fall months that I was constantly cold. Due to this, I have added thicker cardigans and sweaters to my wardrobe. This cardigan would fit in well with my knit sweater family! I love the coral orange shade and the longer boyfriend style cut. Plus, guys, it has pockets! This cardigan fits me nice and loose in a 3x. The beauty of a cardigan like this is how incredibly versatile it is. This sweater pairs with the dress Candace selected for me perfectly, but this would look amazing with a striped mini dress and ankle booties or black skinny jeggings, a low cut black v neck top, and pointy high heels for an understatedly sexy ensemble. I have a similar cardigan already or I would have added this piece with open (yet cold) arms into my cardigan collection!
Zaina Tassel Clutch in Mustard by Moda Luxe – Retail Value $38
It was love at first sight for me when I saw this mustard, envelope clutch and its fringe detail. I love the great vintage yet modern style it has. The clutch has a good chain that comes out as well to wear it off of the shoulder. This bag is simultaneously elegant yet very bohemian in its style. Mustard is one of my favorite colors and works as a great accent shade. I love this color paired with the warm color palette of the dress and cardigan that Candace choose for me. I can foresee styling this with a little black dress and leopard print flats or with a pussybow accent top, jeans, and flats for a sassy, yet casual look. The cost of this purse after the $20 styling fee credit will be $18, so this baby is definitely going in the keep pile!
Marlon Mock Neck Knit Top by Laila Jayde, Size 3x – Retail Value $44
Mock turtlenecks seem incredibly modest, but I find I feel sexier in them at instances more so than a low cut top. That may sound bonkers, but think of babes like Brigitte Bardot and Ann Margret in their turtleneck tops and form-fitting jeans and trousers— they were the epitome of foxy! I paired the mock neck top with the plaid trousers that Candace selected for me, but this top would look fantastic with a pencil skirt and flats or high waist jeans, booties, a long strand chain necklace, and large buckle belt. I loved this turtleneck, but it was a bit too large on me in terms of size and the length. I would need to size down for a better fit, especially since the fabric has ample stretch.
Phelicia Plaid Ponte Straight Leg Pants by Kut from The Kloth, Size 24w – Retail Value $88
Maybe it is the influence of Riverdale and Twin Peaks on me these days, but I do appreciate a retro preppy look every now and then. When I was a teenager I would have found a pair of pants like these at a thrift store and paired them with wing tips and a tank top to skank the night away in at a Ska show. These pants are a departure from the fit I am accustomed to wearing. I wonder if a smaller size would have fit me more to my liking or if it is simply the cut that is throwing me off. I feel as though they weren’t tapered enough, but that could be my intense love of leggings and tight skinny jeans speaking. I paired the pants with the mock turtleneck and loafers for a quintessential Betty Cooper meets Audrey Horne look. I can see this pairing fantastically with a black pussy bow dress shirt and leopard print pointy toe loafers or heels to create a sassy mixed pattern look.
Verdict: My stylist, Candace, consistently aces it! I am always impressed with what she sends out to me in my Stitch Fix boxes because they are pieces I would eye up if I saw them myself in a shop or online. I contribute this to her constantly referring to my Pinterest. She always takes my feedback to heart as well and it results in the amazing selections she makes. I say it time and time again in my reviews, but it means so much to have an attentive stylist like Candace working with me. She is an asset to Stitch Fix and makes the service such a personalized and valuable one. The $20 styling fee is made a great value when you know you will get a box so tailored to your personal style!
