I'm back today with another review of my latest trunk from Trunk Club! This is a service I had put on pause for the summer, because I hadn't really needed many new clothes for a bit (I tend to be a pre season shopper) but since I know many people are looking to freshen up their wardrobe this time of year, I thought it might be good to remind you about this crazy useful service!
If you'd like to read my initial review of trunk club, you can find it here!
This dress is my first and most favorite item from this trunk! Such a fab color for autumn and really casual/easy to wear. It's from Free People and was also a really great price point.
The great thing about Trunk Club is that they don't charge any styling or shipping fees. It's completely free to receive your trunk. You can even schedule your package pickup through the Trunk Club website after you've given your stylist feedback and just set it out for pickup. With Stitch Fix, you have to drop your package off at a USPS drop point - not a big deal, but less convenient for sure. I also really appreciate that I don't feel the need to "spend" my styling fee by making sure it goes towards an item in my shipment. Trunk Club operates on the success of their stylists skill, so you never feel pressured to buy anything as a client. You are also able to chat with your stylist on the phone or via email before she puts your trunk together, which makes for a more successful experience overall.
Trunk Club sends you 12-15 pieces per trunk (including shoes and handbags, or jewelry and scarves if you request it) and before your box is shipped you get a "preview." During this you log on to your account and are able to veto any items you DEFINITELY don't want sent because you don't like them, and your stylist will pick new things. This greatly ups your chances of success, which I loved because it's very disappointing to get a box with absolutely nothing you like in it!
This, I didn't love. It's by Cupcakes & Cashmere (a brand I really like in general) but I have to say that I HATE dresses that require a slip underneath, they're almost never sized correctly and this was no exception.
This red sweater was really REALLY soft and had a very pretty open back with a contrasting fabric. It was by NYDJ, a brand I hadn't tried before! These jeans are black "skinny skinny" jeans from Madewell, which is a label I always love for pants. They're size 26, which worked for me in these.
These two t shirts were definitely her trying to fill in my basics wardrobe, but frankly I would've preferred some from the line Lush or BP. I don't typically spend extra $$$ on t shirts because some lower priced brands do them really well. That said, this blush tee (Madewell) and white tee (Rag & Bone) would have been great investments if I wore this kind of thing more!
Another really soft sweater, but I don't love this neckline, and the same goes for the blue one!
Lastly, this tank from Splendid was an awesome fall layering piece (with cardigans!) and the softest one I've felt. Moving on to shoes....
These Sam Edelman fringe heels were darling, and his shoes are ALWAYS the most comfortable, but the black was a harsh line on my muscular legs so they went back!
However, I was totally obsessed with these cognac Free People booties that are so great for transitioning to fall and will still be cute with tights in a couple of months! Super flattering to the leg, too!
Great success all around - I highly, highly recommend my Trunk Club stylist and you will get assigned to her if you sign up through this link! Like I said, there is zero risk involved and since Trunk Club is owned and run by Nordstrom the selections are pretty broad and awesome. Let me know how you like it on Instagram!
