Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box Review – June 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 June 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 $197 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $99 total savings! That is essentially like getting the Karl Lagerfeld Paris dress or the Eunina shorts and Skies are Blue top for free!
As always, this handy sheet with a sweet note from my stylist, Candace, was included. I always appreciate the styling tips: they are so useful and inspiring! Candace is consistently thoughtful in her selections and uses my Pinterest to help her in styling me each and every month. Her selections generally are rather personalized to my style!

Pascale Strap Detail Blouse by Fun2Fun, Size 3x – Cost to Keep $44
This top has a Summer of Love 1967 vibe due to the paisley print and the billowy style, but it was far too big on my body ( I did update my sizes on my Stitch Fix profile, so that should help my next box be a better success!). The fabric has limited stretch but is meant to fit somewhat loose. I like the patterns and colors, but I am not keen on camisole style tops, so this was not one of my favorite pieces. That being said, this top would look great with embellished sandals, skinny leg jeans, and a thick brown western belt to add a further Boho vibe.
Nicki Denim Skirt by Warp + Weft, Size 22w – Cost to Keep $88
Warp + Weft is a denim brand I have reviewed in a few of my subscription boxes. The quality of their denim is fantastic. Their cuts are flattering and the denim has a slight stretch that really allows their pieces to hug the curves, but not too tightly. The rinse of this skirt is weathered black/grey. The beauty of a skirt like this is its versatility. You will be able to wear this year round. In the summer months pair it with a t-shirt and platform sandals and in the fall with tights, a black mock turtleneck, leopard print beret, and a studded pair of buckle boots for a fierce, Rock’n’Roll Beatnick look! The $88 price tag isn’t so harsh when you think of the hundreds of ways this skirt can be styled!
Bethwin Lace-Up Knit Top by Skies are Blue, Size 3x – Cost to Keep $38
I really wanted to like this top, but it just was not my style. First of all, I was not keen on the cornflower blue color. Just a bit too subdued for me. In addition, this top like the other one Candace selected me, was far too big. I like my tops to be a bit more fitted. The length was too long on me too. I paired this top with the Eunina shorts and it looks like I am nearly naked, whoops! The plus side is the fabric is rather breezy and light, which is ideal in the humidity of my city’s summers. I also like the lace up detail on the chest. Alas, even though this top wasn’t my favorite, it doesn’t mean it won’t be yours! I can see this looking great with a pair of skinny jeans and neutral sandals for a beachy night time look.
Mina Distressed Cuffed Short by Eunina, Size 2x – Cost to Keep $58
I am rather familiar with the Eunina brand because I reviewed a pair back in October for the ModCloth Stylish Surprise! Those shorts are a little larger on me now, but I have been wearing them a bunch this summer so far! I used to absolutely hate shorts, but in the last few years, my tune has changed. Years ago, when I was in college, I used to HATE my legs. I would wear black tights and mini-skirts in eighty-degree weather. There is nothing wrong with these toddler legs of mine, they get me from point a to b and beyond. They deserve far more love! I used to find shorts uncomfortable. They do sometimes creep up in the crotch area and I would get chafing. Since I found ChafeZone’s Chub Rub stick, I have no fear of wearing shorts. I was excited to get these Eunina shorts in a smaller size. They are nearly identical to the ones I already own! These shorts fit like a dang glove; I felt as though they were made for me! The fabric has stretch to embrace your body and all of its curves and swerves. These shorts are ultra-comfortable and the rinse makes them rather versatile as well. I would wear these with my favorite vintage t-shirt and cowboy boots or with a low-v black t-shirt and heels. These also can be worn well into fall as I showed in the ModCloth review if you pair them with solid or patterned tights and booties.
Eleanor Tweed Dress by Karl Lagerfeld Paris, Size 22w – Cost to Keep $88
I was surprised to find a piece from Karl Lagerfeld’s fast fashion line, and that it was in a plus size? Holy smokes! I do like that the style is reminiscent to a classic Channel shift dress. This piece could be worn alone in summer or with a button down layered under in the fall. The fabric has limited to no stretch, so make sure to check the measurements if buying online! There were some quality issues with this piece that surprised me, though. The one pocket’s flower button is sewn to the liner of the dress. It makes the piece feel oddly twisted while wearing. You can’t tell from the exterior, though, so that is a plus. Overall, this classically styled piece may have been my favorite that Candace selected for me this month aside from the Eunina shorts.
Verdict: This month’s Stitch Fix box didn’t feel like my style, which is terribly unusual for my stylist, Candace. She typically nails it and makes the task of not keeping an entire box dang near impossible. The tops were far too oversized and a bit too demure for my wild and outrageous style. I did, however, love the Karl Lagerfeld and Eunina shorts. Those two were great staple pieces that are incredibly versatile making them great values. I did pass along my feedback on this box to Candace, so I sense the July one will be far more on point! I say it in every review, but keeping a Pinterest for your stylists is the best thing you can do. It creates a dream board that your stylist can use to help add pieces to your dream wardrobe.
