I was lucky enough to try out Trunk Club which has recently launched a women's box!
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. It took about 2 weeks from that point to have the box curated and sent to me -- but it was worth it!
What do you receive?
I received 13 pieces total and they were all gorgeous! I had requested fall pieces, specifically boots, leopard print flats, a jean jacket, a fall jacket, and a tote. Well, Alle listened and hit it spot on. If it weren't for some sizing issues (to be expected the first time around) I would have been in trouble! What's great is that they send full outfits (shoes, pants, shirts, jackets, purses) so you can see how things would look together.
Here is the pricing for the pieces -- I couldn't believe how much they fit in one box:
Sam Edelman 'Alaine' Scalloped Topline Flat - $109.94
These are so adorable! I love the scalloped cut on the top and they look really well made. I would have chosen these, but they were sent in a 5.5, and I wear a 6.5. Alle mentioned that you can request getting a different size in your comments when you checkout, so hopefully I get these in a future Trunk.
Hinge Drapey Military Jack - $88.00
This coat is actually more of an olive color. I liked the style a lot, but being a petite person the sleeves were a little too long and the coat was about a size too large. It's really cute though and is perfect for fall.
Trouve Zip Neck High/Low Gathered Top - $46.80
This was the once item that wasn't really my style. The cut and shape was great but the colors just didn't do it for me. One out of 13 isn't too bad though!
Madewell 'The Transport' Leather Tote - $168.00
Ahh! I've been wanting a Madewell bag forever, and of course it would come in this trunk. Must be fate. Yes, I'm keeping this one. Perfect for daytime and work.
KUT from the Kloth 'Helena' Denim Jacket - $74.50
Another keeper! With the sleeves rolled up it fits my short arms perfectly. The denim is well made and the fit is great. This should last me a long time and will be a good fall/spring jacket.
KUT from the Kloth 'Diana' Stretch Twill Skinny Pants - $79.00
I like the style of these but they were too small and also too long for me. I am interested to see if Trunk Club for Women has a petite option like StichFix as that is really helpful when it comes to pants and dresses.
Eliza J Knit Fit & Flare Dress - $98.00
This one just didn't fit right overall -- a bit long, a bit wide, not really built for a petite body. I liked the material for a fall / winter dress.
Marc New York Scuba Sheath Dress - $138.00
This had a nice stretchy, light material to it and great darting that was flattering. I work in a startup so I wear a lot of casual dresses and jeans, so this didn't fit into my wardrobe.
ASTR Stripe Front Cold Shoulder Tee - $34.80
Another keeper! I loved the cut out shoulder details, the high/low cut, the flowy material. This is a great going out shirt for the fall/winter as I can wear it with boots and leggings. Also the price was right. Love it!
Joe's 'Flawless - Honey' Curvy Bootcut Jeans - $179.00 / Current High Waist Skinny Ankle Jeans - $168.00
Loved the material of these jeans. The pair on the left was more of a bell bottom sort of jean but these were way too long. The ones on the right fit well length wise and throughout the leg, but I'll be requesting a size up for my next fix.
Louise et Cie 'Zalia' Ankle Bootie - $178.95
These are really beautifully made with nice wooden heels and extra details throughout. I tried these on with skinny jeans, wide legged jeans and a dress, but they just cut in a bad place for how short I am so I sadly had to let them go. I loved them though!
Ivanka Trump 'Filoer' Round Toe Bootie - $148.95
Another pair I wanted to keep so badly! These fit my short legs well, but the fact that they were suede was the deciding factor since I live in a northeast city (snow) and I commute each day -- not very suede friendly! Really awesome details on this shoe as well.
I really loved this experience and I'm totally sold! I walked away with a purse, shirt and jean jacket. I see this as a great way to build up some higher-end staples in your closed. Compared to StitchFix, I loved the more personalized aspect, the products were better quality, and I loved that they had shoes as well. I will definitely be getting a trunk per month as I think this one was right on and I love that she fulfilled every one of my requests. I'm in trouble once the sizing is correct.
