My Second Stitch Fix - Plus Size Fashion

After my first fix went so well, I decided that I had to try it again.  I scheduled my fix pretty quickly again because I was excited to see what was next!  When we got home from our Labor Day weekend fun I saw that my Stitch Fix was at our house!  Time for a fashion show and time for some at home shopping!!  I have to say it again, I am so excited that Stitch Fix is now available for Plus Sizes!  Ready to see what was in my fix this month?

As I said before, I am not a fashion blogger so our pictures may not do the clothing much justice but this time we actually were able to use the natural light outside so I believe you will be able to really see the items I got a bit better than my first fix.  


When I opened my Stitch Fix box and saw all of the deep fall colors I was so excited.  I love the season of fall and this box was filled with my favorite fall colors - navy, plum and olive green.  Love!!  


I had a different stylist this time, her name was Kristen.  Just like my first stylist, I really do believe that she looked at my style profile and listened to my requests, concerns and likes.  This is truly what makes Stitch Fix work, in my opinion.  See all of those fall looks!!  Okay fall weather, feel free to show your face!

Item 1 - Warp + Weft Hayley Skinny Jean

Last fix I had a different skinny jean that was way to long (that never happens for me!), but this round I got a nice ankle length skinny jean.  While the fit was great and the color was perfect for fall, I felt like these jeans would stretch out way too much through out the day and I would end up tugging at them.  They were so soft, however.  The length was great, they were perfect for flats or booties.  This came in a size 24W, again, I felt like they would have stretched out way too much through out the day.  These skinny jeans retail at $98.00.  A bit pricey for my liking as well.

Item 2 - Le Lis Alapay Printed Back Knit Top

This top was beautiful.  Totally perfect for a casual fall day.  I really like the designs on the back of shirts, I think it brings a regular old knit shirt to a whole new level.  Blue is my color so I knew this color would look great on me.  I was right, however, the knit front clung to me in my mid-section and I was not happy with that.  Totally bummed about this one.  I loved that the sleeves were long too, great for fall and winter.  This was a size 3x but just didn't fit me right in the mid-section.  This top retails at $48.00.

Verdict - Sent Back.

Item 3 - Town & Reese Dosty Circle Lace Earrings 

Oh this gold went perfectly with the navy, plum and olive green in my fix box but they are a bit much for me.  Rarely do I wear dangly earrings.  The lace accents on the the jewelry was really pretty.  These retail at $28.00. 

Verdict - Sent Back.

Item 4 - 41Hawthorn Breyson Pleated Tab-Sleeve Blouse

Oh this plum color, my favorite.  I loved this light blouse, it was really comfortable.  The tab sleeve did not work for me, but I could wear it as a long sleeved blouse.  I loved the pleated look on the front as well.  Great detail.  Due to not needing to dress up that often anymore now that I am working from home, I could not justify purchasing this blouse.  I would recommend this for anyone who needs great office wear this fall.  This was a size 3x and retailed at $58.00. 

Verdict - Sent Back.

Item 5 - 41Hawthorn Chaplin Hooded Anorak Cargo Jacket 

When I saw the buttons, pockets and olive green in my package I really hoped that it was a jacket and sure enough it was!!  This cargo jacket is a style I have been wanting.  Last fall I almost bought one but decided not too.  I love the fit on this jacket.  It cinches a bit at the waist and the great pockets, snaps and hood just add some flair to any outfit.  I am a jacket/coat lover so I had to get this one!  This is a size 3x, fits perfectly, and retails at $88.00.  A deal for sure!  I cannot wait to wear this jacket this fall!! 

Verdict - KEPT!!


What a fun fix!  I am set to get my next fix in early October, I even asked for a sundress for our beach trip.  We will see if they make that happen!  Also, in a few weeks Jeremy will be getting his first fix!  So exciting!  Yes, Stitch Fix is for men too!!  I will, of course, make him pose for you all too!

Here are a few tips I believe that might be helpful when trying Stitch Fix for the first time.


My Tips:

  • Be honest on your profile - list your correct numbers even if it is hard to type those numbers out!
  • Do not look at the price card until you try on your items.
  • Ask for time capsule pieces - items that can be used from season to season.
  • Think outside the box - try something new!
  • Request for special events - need a dress for a wedding next month, ask for one!
  • Update your price ranges as your budget changes.
  • Share your referral link - people will sign up and you will get a credit! Basically that means free clothes for you!! Woohoo!

  2. I shop mostly secondhand and vintage, but I love, love, love this concept! Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be seeing it in Denmark anytime soon, but I'm definitely going to tell my US-based sister about this even though the pricing seems a bit steep.

  3. I absolutely love that Plum Blouse! I would definitely would have to keep that...and those earrings! Those earrings are just my style and they looked as if they would go with just about everything. Of course...if the items I loved did not fit to my liking...I would send them back as well, but really love this shipment you received.

  7. I thought you look great on all of them but that jacket is really nice. The earrings I would really really keep as well, those are my style. I've seen Stitch Fix before but I didn't know what it was, thanks for sharing. I'll look into it today.

  8. Not being a fashion blogger makes your opinion of the products more genuine, in my opinion. I am loving the - 41Hawthorn Chaplin Hooded Anorak Cargo Jacket. I want my own.

  9. I like that it comes with jewelry. Those are always the most fun for me. Stitch Fix is a bit pricey for me but I do like the idea of receiving clothes every month. I'm not a fashionista and sometimes I don't even know what's in style so something like this could really help!

  10. I love, love, love Stitch Fix. I am on my 26th fix. I am 99% sure I have that same cargo jacket. I love keeping those cards and holding on to them for more styling ideas. I agree with you... the more you communicate with your stylist, the better your fix will be. Stitch Fix has bright me such confidence in my wardrobe!

  11. Me like Cargo jacket too! The Le Lis Alapay Printed Back Knit Top looks absolutely amazing but OMG - yes you definitely don't want it to cling where it does. I have the same problem and I could see how these jeans wouldn't work for me either. Great choices girl! I absolutely agree!

  12. Oh this sounds so neat! I love what they picked for you! That Cargo Jacket is so adorable! I think it would be so fun to have someone pick for you!

  13. This sounds like a great idea !

  14. I will definitely be curious to see what this looks like for men as well as women. I'm a little sad that you weren't able to keep more of the different looks as they were not really fitted right. But I can understand having to send them back if they just don't work. That does look like a cool jacket though. I can understand why you kept it.
