After my last failure of a Trunk Club box, I turned off my automatic shipments. My stylist reached out last week to ask for another shot, so I went ahead and did it. This time, I asked my stylist for some classic spring and summer pieces in bold and warm colors. Like in my other experiences, my stylist didn’t listen and sent me a box full of trendy pastel transitional clothing. When I looked through the preview, I decided to go in with an open mind because I did think some of the pieces were cute. I saw what my stylist was trying to do, and I appreciated the effort. She also did send one red thing, so there was that.
Unfortunately, nothing worked on me so I didn’t keep a single thing. I’m officially going to stop doing Trunk Club — it just didn’t work out for me. I’m so disappointed because I love most of Nordstrom’s inventory.
WHAT IS TRUNK CLUB?
Trunk club is a personal styling service. You are matched with a personal stylist, who will send you a “trunk” when you request (or on a subscription basis). Currently, I am receiving trunks once a month. There is a styling fee of $25 per trunk, which is applied to any clothing purchases at checkout. It is free to return anything you don’t want or need, and you can schedule a pickup from your apartment or house. To sign up, you can visit their website here!
WHAT I GOT
Bardot Tulip Ruffle Dress ($129): This dress might look good on a 6 foot tall model, but it didn’t look right on me. It was ways too low cut, and there was a gigantic flap of fabric right at the midsection that I wasn’t in love with.
Lush Hailey Crepe Dress ($46): I wanted to like this dress, but it was just too boxy on me. I told my stylist probably 20-30 times that I don’t like boxy things, so I will never understand why she sent this.
Lush Knotted Mini Dress ($45): This color looks SO bad on me. I maybe would have liked this dress in a darker color. The fabric was also very clingy.
4Si3nna Wrap Skirt ($59): This was one item that I was extremely excited for! I’ve been looking for a white skirt. When I received this, the button was detached and at the bottom of the plastic bag. I never even got to try it on, but this fabric didn’t pass the see-through test.
Bobbie Bubble Sleeve Satin Top ($27): PLOT TWIST! This item never even showed up. Instead, I got a bag of gross black linty sweatpants.
Halogen Ribbed Cashmere Cardigan ($119): This was nice, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good oversized cashmere cardigan. However for me, this didn’t really fall under the category of Spring and Summer. This is also the sort of thing that looks very pajama-like on me, so it just didn’t work.
Dolce Vita Stevie Bootie ($119.95) : These were also nice, but I have something similar already (in a richer, more cognac-like color). Also there was a large scuff mark on the back of these, so even if I did want them I would’ve had to exchange them.
Kut from the Kloth Mia Curvy Fit Skinny Jeans ($44.49): Same problem I always have with jeans: wayyyyy too long. Also not the most flattering.
Can’t locate this because the Trunk Club website isn’t working for me, but here’s a similar option here: This top was super weird! It was too low cut for me, and looked very victorian on me (not in a good way). Also this color — SO bad with my complexion.
Trouve Cutout Surplice Top ($69): This top bothered me so much because it wasn’t functional. It’s too low cut to wear without a cami…but when you put on a cami you see the straps in the cutouts. So bad!
Hinge Blouson Sleeve Top ($69): Loved the color of this, but the cut was too boxy.
Paige Transcend – Verdugo Crop Skinny Jeans ($169): These were nice, but way too tight. At this point, I was way too exhausted by Trunk Club to exchange them for a larger size.
