Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box Review – August 2019
Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. When you sign up you take a pretty in-depth survey of your sizes, your style, and pricing preferences. After choosing when you’d like to receive your delivery, your stylist handpicks 5 items based on your preferences. The fee for this service is $20, and that includes free shipping and free returns. And 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 Fix. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Stitch Fix Plus Size Styling Service August 2019 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 $222.25 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $100.75 total savings! That is almost like getting the DV8 booties for free!
As always, I received this handy sheet with a note from this month’s stylist, Leslie! She includes some helpful styling tips for a few of the pieces and reasons for why she selected them for me. I appreciate Leslie mentioning that she used my Pinterest board since I frequently update it for my stylists to use for reference.
Irene Faux Wrap Brushed Knit Maxi Dress by Fortune + Ivy, Size 2x — Retail Value $54
This romantic, boho-style wrap dress is not only adorable, but extremely comfortable to wear. I appreciate the high-low style dress cut because it shows off my legs (and the killer brush burn and bug bites on them–WOOF!), but the longer back ensures my butt is completely covered. Thumbs up! I also appreciate the faux wrap style because it is incredibly effortless to get on; regular wraps are a literal booby trap for me! The fabric is immensely soft and stretchy too! This dress is ideal for end of summer/early fall. In warmer weather, style it like I did with classic wooden open-toed heels and in cooler months with a faux leather biker jacket, booties, horn-rimmed glasses, and a cozy infinity scarf for the ultimate fall look!
Zoe Wrap Dress by KIYONNA, Size 2x — Retail Value $88
How can one go wrong with a sexy little black dress? Answer is, you can’t, especially when the dress is as flattering as this one. I have had KIYONNA pieces in past stying service reviews and I’m always impressed with them. The fabric typically has ample stretch, but also has a slight compression effect that helps hold the body in well too. The lace-up tie detail at the hips is unique and adds to the sex appeal you will instantly possess when you put this number on. Not only will you look fierce, but you will be comfortable in this easy to wear piece. Wear this on a date and watch your partners jaw drop to the floor. Pair this with your favorite pair of heels and oversized silver hoops for extra va-va voom!
Savana Pintuck Neckline Knit Top by Madison Lilly, Size 2x — Retail Value $28
I’m not going to lie, when I initially saw this top I was not wowed in the least. I even found it to be a tad matronly! To my shock and surprise it actually hugs my curves well and has a bit of that ’60s retro vibe I love, love, love! This sleeveless top has plenty of stretch and can be paired with slacks for work or jeans for a more casual look. I opted to style it with a black mini skirt and white pointy-toe mules for a cute end of summer look. Who wants to go get some end of summer ice cream cones?
Jeremy Textured Fringe Skirt by Gilli, Size 2x — Retail Value $58
This textured skirt seems to be a modern pencil skirt version of the classic boucle Chanel skirts of the ’50s and ’60s. My mother absolutely loved the skirt upon seeing it, but it really didn’t appeal to me. I loved the styling options Leslie provided; so refined and timeless paired with a camisole and trench or turtleneck and heels. Those are fantastic looks, but didn’t feel quite like me. I wanted to show this skirt in a different style dimension: preppy loafer mules styled with a 188.8.131.52s band T-shirt and a red faux leather biker jacket. Even though the skirt isn’t my cup of tea, it doesn’t mean I don’t recognize its versatility. You can easily wear this to the office or to a dirty rock’n’roll pub show—it’s absolutely perfect for the fall season too!
Chyro Zip Booties by DV8, Size 9.5 — Retail Value $95
These retro grey booties are stylish and earthy, but I am not sure if I like them. The material of the boots is rather soft and the soles have a rubber feel. Though these booties fit lengthwise, if you have a high instep like I do these may not work for you. I like the double zipper on the out and inside of the boot, but these were still difficult to get on. I sense I would not be able to wear these with socks or tights since they are so snug. The fabric may stretch, but I wasn’t in love with these boots to invest in them and see. The booties look awesome with the Irene Faux Wrap Dress and will pair well with all your fall gear! Picture these with your favorite sweater, mini skirt, tights and beret. For a more casual look, pair with skinny jeans, a baggy white T-shirt French tucked, and a black faux leather biker jacket. Even though they weren’t my favorite booties—they just might be yours!
The Verdict: It was fun to try out Stitch Fix again! Though I did not keep any of the pieces selected for me, I do appreciate the thought put into each. My favorite pieces were the two dresses selected for me. The biggest surprise item I liked was the Madison Lilly top. The Gilli skirt and DV8 shoes might be pieces I actually selected in Stitch Fix’s Style Shuffle. Style Shuffle is a feature on the site where you can thumbs up or down items you feel fit your style profile. It is a fun and engaging tool, but rather useful. I try to do the shuffle a few times a week if I remember to as well as update my Pinterest to give my stylist some inspiration. The best thing about styling services like Stitch Fix is the ability to provide feedback. I can’t emphasize how crucial that is to get a more tailored Fix. For my feedback on the August Fix I asked if a faux-leather black mini skirt could be sent to replace my recently destroyed one. I am eager to see what the September Fix holds!
