Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box Review – September 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 September 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 $228.25 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $102.75 total savings! That is almost like getting the Market & Spruce dress and Fun2Fun top for free! Pretty dang close, at least!
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 even referenced my Fall Looks section on my Pinterest to help her pick out one of the outfits for me. I appreciate that she takes my feedback to heart each month!
Evander Dress by Market & Spruce, Size 2x – Cost to Keep $68
This dress had me swooning immediately! I love the contrast of the vibrant orange, red, and yellow flowers against the gorgeous jewel tone turquoise. My photographer (my boyfriend) loved this dress as well and said it was “stunning.” The fabric has stretch and the length perfectly hits right above the knee. I paired the dress with my favorite orange heels for a perfect late summer/early fall ensemble. I can envision wearing this outfit in the cooler fall months, just add black tights and a mustard yellow cardigan and you’re set!
Anjelica Criss Cross Detail Top by Fun2Fun, Size 2x – Cost to Keep $38
I am not sure if you guys could tell, but I am a sucker for mustard yellows and shades of gold. When I saw this top, I was excited to see how it looked on. The top is adorable on and has raised dots on the linen-like fabric. The one issue I had was the armholes—they were slightly too big for me. I was constantly tugging and adjusting to not have my bra exposed. The top has limited stretch but was rather roomy on me. I loved that Candace sent the top to be paired with the plaid pants— too cute, right?
Karen Printed Straight Leg Pants by Erica Taylor, Size 2x – Cost to Keep $88
These pants fit like a dream! I have had a fondness for plaid pants dating back to my teenage rude girl era. Back in the late 90s, my favorite look aside from baggy JNCOs and a baby t were plaid pants, a tank top, and my Doc Martin oxford wing tips! These pants are bringing back so many memories! There is something classic about a cigarette style plaid pant, though. This style always brings to mind stylish babes like Marilyn Monroe and Ann Margret. The pants have great stretch and almost fit with the comfort and ease of a great pair of leggings. Candace had the right idea suggesting to pair these with the mustard yellow top she included. To complete the ensemble I put on some gorgeous gold accent jewelry from my latest CHC Vintage accessory box review and black pointy toe flats. What a classic look!
Viva Cold Shoulder Knit Top by Lemon Tart, Size 2x – Cost to Keep $58
I generally am not a fan of cold shoulder tops, but I actually liked this one. Go figure, right? Heck, I even liked this cold shoulder, mock turtleneck top despite it immediately making me think of Andie Walsh’s dress in Pretty in Pink! That speaks volumes; I am still bitter to this day that Andie destroyed that gorgeous dress that Iona generously gave her! You too can charm Duckie and Blaine in this gorgeous velvet top and be the belle of prom. The fabric has ample stretch so you will be able to serve glamour in comfort. Try a little tenderness and pair glitzy dangly earrings, a black mini skirt, tights, and silver booties for a dazzling ensemble!
Soraya Suede Skinny Pant by Slink, Size 22W – Cost to Keep $79
I usually stray away from purple, but I must say that these deep berry suede-like pants are stunning! Somehow, these pants manage to be casual, yet elegant at the same time! The fit has fantastic stretch and is incredibly soft to the touch. I styled the pants with the Lemon Tart cold shoulder top and gold flats for an ultra-jewel toned ensemble, but these pants could just as easily be paired with a vintage t-shirt, cowboy booties, and large brimmed hat for a late 60’s boho look.
Verdict: As always, my stylist, Candace, has selected some unique and fun pieces. I was surprised by how much I liked the Slink suede skinny pants and the cold shoulder top. My favorite piece from the September box was the Evander Dress. You can truly tell that dress was picked with me in mind. I appreciate that Candace consults my Pinterest for inspiration and manages to find not only pieces I would select for myself but ones I never thought I would want! These are just a few reasons I get excited to see what is in my next Stitch Fix box!
