Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box Review – July 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 July 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 $209.50 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $96.50 total savings! That is essentially like getting the Faith + Zoe top and Romolo earrings or the 41 Hawthorn dress 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 incredibly considerate and personalized!
Althea Dress by Market & Spruce, Size 2x – Retail Value $68
Guys, I literally gasped upon unboxing this dress; it is my dream summer dress. Warm mustard yellow and orange shades are my absolute favorite— and this dress is the perfect golden orange. I also love the contrasting shades of purple, turquoise, and hot pink; I mean what do you expect from a former art major? I also appreciate that this dress looks like a high quality 60s vintage piece. The fabric itself has limited stretch, but the gathered elastic back provides the stretch the material doesn’t. I generally avoid halters due to my hatred of strapless bras, but alas— how could I resist this dress? This baby went in the keep pile immediately! I opted to style this carnival ready stunner with lilac jelly flats, thick green cat eye glasses, and the yellow mobile earrings that Candace also selected for me.
Gigi Drop Earrings by Romolo – Retail Value $28
Speaking of yellow: I love these earrings! I swear, Candace truly understands me and what appeals to me! These earrings are made of metal but are covered in a paint that has a matte, rubbery texture to the touch. These are surprisingly lightweight considering they are made from metal. These earrings remind me of an Alexander Calder mobile due to the simple shapes and primary colors. I felt like a piece of art with these mod beauties on, but I opted to not buy these earrings due to my trip to the Bay Area I had coming up at the time.
Donata Ponte Knit Dress by 41 Hawthorn, Size 2x – Retail Value $84
This dress appears at first to be a typical shift style, but that is further from the truth. This piece is a stunningly vivid, jewel-toned, turquoise with scalloped navy faux leather accents at the hems and down the chest. The fit of this dress is fantastic, largely due to the stretchy, yet structured ponte fabric. I styled the dress with the yellow Gigi Drop earrings and my red Doc Marten heels to complete the (almost) primary color palette theme. Pair this with a blazer and heels for the office and you are set!
Odell Embellished Detail Top by Faith + Zoe, Size 2x – Retail Value $58
This blouse may have been my least favorite piece this month; that says a lot because I loved all the items selected for me in my July Stitch Fix. The faux pearl accents are a cute touch, but the cut of this button down was slightly boxy on me. It was especially big in the arms. I am curious if the 1x would fit well or be too snug. Even though I had fit issues, I can recognize the versatility of this top. I styled it with the Seven7 Jeans shorts that were also included in my box, but this would look great tied at the waist and worn with a metallic or poofy tulle skirt and heels. I also envision this pairing well with lilac skinny jeans and silver flats for another take on casual meets fancy. Plus, this could simply be paired with a pencil skirt, blazer, and heels for the office. There are so many options for this top and that makes it an incredible value!
Ari Frayed Hem Short With Embellishments by Seven7 Jeans – Retail Value $68
Guys, I must confess that having to return these shorts was a real bummer and a half! These Seven7 brand jeans fit like an absolute dream. They have ample stretch, but not so much that the fabric loses its shape. It also has studding that forms a triangle of sorts on the sides of the shorts. The high waist and black rinse are classic and immensely flattering. I styled these shorts with the Odell top for a modern-day Rizzo from Grease look. Tell everyone to eat their hearts out in this ensemble!
Verdict: We are back on track with the July Stitch Fix selections! This may be one of my all-time favorite boxes that Candace styled for me. I would have loved to keep this entire box, but decided to be frugal and only keep the Market & Spruce dress. The pieces were so bright with retro details that appealed to me. There was no doubt whatsoever that this box was picked out for me! I appreciate Candace constantly taking my feedback and Pinterest into account with her selections. I truly feel seen and heard; this month’s selections felt like something a close friend would choose for me as a gift. This month’s fix reminded me why Stitch Fix is one of my favorite subscription boxes!
