WHAT IS TRUNK CLUB FOR WOMEN?
Trunk Club is a curated clothing box personally styled to your preferences. A stylist is assigned and you work with your stylist to define your style, wants, wishes and what you would like to try out. The clothing is curated from the Nordstrom stock so its high quality and very stylish.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
I signed up for the Trunk Club for Women's waitlist about 2 months ago and it took about a month to get off of the waitlist. After that, I was contacted by my assigned stylist Alle. She asked a series of questions including my style, sizing, what I was looking for in my trunk, as well as what I didn't want.
WHAT DO YOU RECEIVE?
I received 15 pieces total and they were all gorgeous! These ranged from jewelry, booties, sweaters, dresses, jeans, and pants. These are all brands that Nordstrom carries.
Here is a list of the items sent as well as the pricing
I know, it's a lot. Look at the size of the box they sent!
Vince Camuto Side Zip skinny pants $89 & stem cowl neck cotton sweater $68
The pants were just not a good fit. They reminded me of leggings with a side zipper, but they were baggy and too long for my petite frame. The sweater was soft. I decided to return both as there were other things that I liked more. Returned.
Trouve Raw Edge Long Vest $78
Okay so I asked for vests for this Trunk but I was imagining J. Crew style vests that are a great layering piece but what I received was this and the vest below. I think the idea of it could work for someone but clearly not me and my short and stout body :) Returned
Dylan Vintage Faux Shearling Vest $98
Cute and cozy, but really not designed for my body. Returned
Paige Denim Transcend High Rise Ultra Skinny Jeans $179 & Halogen Shirttail Wool and CASHMERE Boatneck Tunic $90
I really liked these jeans but had just received a great pair in the mail that day that were similar and only cost $50 so these just didnt make the cut. This sweater was so comfortable and I liked the length for leggings, but cashmere just won't survive in my house and will be immediately washed by accident. Returned
Trouve Drape Top $48
I think this doesn't lay right across my chest so this will be sent back. Returned
Caslon Side Slit Cowl Neck Tunic $68
This actually was comfortable and I liked the fit. I requested a different color in the next fix and then I would probably buy it. Returned
AG Roll Cuff Skinny Jeans $225 and rag & bone 'Margot' Bootie $525
I was happy that these boots didn't fit if you catch my drift! They are gorgeous but rubbed my feet wrong in some places so they'll be going back but I did love them. The jeans did not fit me well with the roll and not being petite sized, so they'll be going back as well. Phew. Returned.
Ivanka Trump Space Dye Fit & Flare Sweater Dress $134
I think this is a little longer than I like my dresses to fit and for the price it just wasn't worth keeping. Returned.
Charles Henry Crepe Fit & Flare Dress $88
Couldn't get this one on. Must run very small. Returned
Rebecca Minkoff Double Tassel Pendant Necklace $88
Pretty but I don't usually buy jewelry for this much. I asked for something cheaper next time around. Returned
Caslon Cable Knit Sweater Dress $74& MICHAEL Michael Kors 'Shaw' Bootie $175
Here's my winning outfit! I love the sweater dress, its really well made and fitted without being too tight. The color is very fall. These booties I tried on and fell in love with even though I promised myself I wouldn't get suede boots (I live in PA -- these are not winter friendly!). They are just gorgeous though and I don't regret purchasing at all. Kept
Overall, I liked the price points that Alle picked out -- there was a nice array of luxury items and quality items as well as more practical items (sweaters etc) that were more affordable. I love this box because they send great brands and I find myself buying staples that I don't always make time to shop for but would like in my wardrobe. This service has definitely helped me to buy some more quality pieces to round out my wardrobe (purse, booties, sweater dress, jean jacket, and shirt so far).
