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. Speaking of preferences, I challenged my stylist to match me with pieces reflective of Natasha Lyonne's style from the Netflix series Russian Doll for this month's review. Read on for more!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this Fix. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we conduct reviews.)

Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing February 2020 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 $240.25 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $106.75 total savings! That is like getting the Slink jeans for free!
As always, I received this handy sheet with a note from this month’s stylist, Nicole! For last month's feedback, I asked if she could send me an outfit styled by one of my personal icons and favorite actresses, Natasha Lyonne. I especially love her style on the show, Russian Doll. As you can see by Nicole's note, she was totally into the concept as well and ran with it! I love her enthusiasm and how she told me why she selected each item. I already know this is going to be a fun experience for both of us!
Also included was an advert for Stitch Fix 's option where you can shop personalized outfits built around items you already own. What a neat concept!
My Style Inspiration: Natasha Lyonne/Nadia Vulvokov of Russian Doll
I have been following Natasha Lyonne's career since the '90s when I saw her in movies like The Slums of Beverly Hills, But I'm a Cheerleader, and Everyone Says I Love You. She was so enigmatic, witty, and unique back then and remains to be to this day. She is rough around the edges, but charming and whip smart. That comes across in her fashion and in the character she portrays, Nadia Vulvokov, in Russian Doll. If you haven't seen the show-- what are you waiting for? The show is absolutely brilliant (made me feel an arsenal of emotions, I FELT THEM ALL!), much like the rock'n'roll menswear that Lyonne wears on the show.
I love Natasha's style outside of Russian Doll as well. It is strong, fierce, quirky, and unique; filled with retro and vintage pieces, vibrant and bold colors, flashy metallic hues, and wild animal prints. Her wardrobe matches her personality perfectly-- smart, clever, and incredibly strong willed. I see our styles, aesthetic, and personalities being rather similar-- am I a narcissist for enjoying her so dang much? She seems so effortlessly cool in every respect and I absolutely adore her, so she was the ideal style icon for me to choose!
Genoa Belted Coatigan by Evolution by Cyrus, Size 2x — Retail Value $98
It's a cardigan, it's a coat-- it's a COATIGAN! I just love that phrase, don't you? More so than the phrase, I love this coatigan. It is so warm-- ideal for those temperate end of winter days. Our weather out my way has been all over the place! Recently it is was twenty six degrees, but a few days prior it was near the sixties. For days like those, this jacket is ideal. The material has a warm wool quality and the style of the pieces is so incredibly classic. Houndstooth print is an eternally stylish pattern. Nicole nailed it on the head with this jacket since Nadia Vulvokov (played by Natasha Lyonne) in Russian Doll always sports these timeless menswear-inspired pieces. Think Diane Keaton in Annie Hall, just darker and more brooding.
Lenny Lace Panel Pullover by LETY & ME, Size 2x — Retail Value $48
Nadia wears lots of black pieces, but I feel that this top perfectly marries her style with mine. I never shy away from showing off a bit of skin, but with a top like this one you still manage to be modest and have some coverage. The polka dot lace is divine on the sleeves and chest. The material has ample stretch and isn't too thin or too thick-- it is immensely comfortable. I love the pullover paired with the Slink jeans that Nicole included for me, but how amazing would this look for a night out on the town with a faux leather mini skirt, large brimmed hat, and ankle booties? Homina, homina, am I right? I wouldn't mind repeatedly reliving a day in this ensemble, I tell ya!
Jeanice Side Stripe Frayed Hem Skinny Jeans by Slink, Size 22w — Retail Value $98
Let me tell you guys, I legitimately gasped when I put these jeans on. First of all, they feel soft like butter to the touch and feel absolutely amazing to wear! Then, when I saw the snakeskin tuxedo strip down the legs, I think I fell in love. This is another piece that I feel perfectly combines my style with Natasha Lyonne's in Russian Doll! These jeans are gorgeous and soft, yet have a tough edginess to them-- just like the character of Nadia and myself. I love it!
Depth Vegan Leather Bootie by BC Footwear, Size 9.5 — Retail Value $69
I am a sucker for a good pointy-toed bootie and these ones are truly quintessential. These are incredibly well made-- and from vegan leather to boot! I love the faux croc texture as well. The beauty of a bootie (the shoe variety, of course) like these is that you can dress them up or down. They are so adaptable! I love them styled apart of this Natasha Lyonne styled look, but I can envision various ways to wear these beauts! I am imagining wearing them with tights, a gold mini-skirt, a cropped vintage band shirt, and some oversized glasses to go see a band play at my favorite watering hole. These will also look effortlessly cool paired with your favorite dress pants and button down for the office as well!
Julius Graduated Bead Pendant Necklace by Bancroft — Retail Value $34
One of the most iconic items that Nadia wears in Russian Doll is a krugerrand coin that once belonged to her mother. As soon as I saw this piece, I knew what Nicole had in mind with its inclusion. Not only does this piece hold great symbolism, but it is understated and timeless. This necklace is bold, yet not overtly ostentatious. I appreciate that it is both silver and gold as well, you get the best of both metals in one necklace! This statement piece is lighter than I thought it would be and easy to wear-- making it an excellent candidate to become a staple piece in one's jewelry box.
The Verdict: This month's Stitch Fix was so much fun! My stylist truly understood me and created a look that borrowed wonderful elements from my favorite modern-day style icon, Natasha Lyonne, but tailored to me and what I like. I genuinely loved the whole look Nicole sent me. If I wasn't on a tight budget this month, I would have kept the Slink jeans and the BC Footwear booties in a heartbeat. This month's styling really shows how much fun it can be to collaborate with your stylist! Not to be as repetitive as Nadia was in Russian Doll, but I can't stress enough how crucial it is to provide feedback! Whether you create a Pinterest and post items that inspire you or reference a beloved celebrity's style-- giving your stylist a dream board of visuals is helpful in acquiring one's perfect ensemble delivered right to your door!
