Trunk Club Review Round 3: Summer gear

May 22, 2016
1) I did not clean up for this photo shoot 🙂 And I happened to take the pix in front of the 2 most cluttered, un-Kon-Mari’ed areas of the house.  Ha!  So excuse the clutter.
2) I figured out halfway through that the lighting was better on the other side of the room.  One day I will take outdoor pix.
3) Something seems to happen to photos when they go from phone (where detail is easier to see) to computer.  I think it may actually be happening after upload to blogger.  Reason #2832 I need to switch blog platforms!
4) I had a bit of credit to use this round (yay!) equating to 1-2 free pieces.  I did not expect this, and thank you!  If anyone else is moved to use my referral code, it’s here.  I believe it will link you with my stylist, who is named Gianna.  She has been very responsive and overall I have been happy with her picks so far, though I’m not sure this box was quite as fruitful as the last.
Here we go!  I received 17 items – mostly clothes, but 3 pairs of shoes.  I had requested summer outfits, white jeans, neutral-colored platforms, and light/breezy tops for hot weather.  
Here we go!  
‘Irina’ lace contrast romper by cupcakes and cashmere
$105, XS
No.  This was really floppy and unflattering on, and Josh said it looked like pajamas.

‘Croxley’ cuffed denim shorts in Elemental by Husdson Jeans
$99, size 26
Scoop neck woven tank by Halogen
$39, XS
Hadley Wedge Sandal by Hinge
Super comfortable.  I am leaning towards keeping the shorts but Josh thinks the tiny frayed spot is a deal breaker (shown in next pic).  Opinions?
Love the tank
Shoes are okay but I don’t love the cork sole

Another view showing the frayed detail that may or may not be objectionable

Print wrap jersey dress – Petite, by Maggy London
PXS, $98
Leaning toward yes because it’s an easy work option, but the neckline is a hair lower than I would prefer

‘Growover’ Jersey T-shirt Dress by Caslon
XS, $58
Not flattering, way too body-con for me, and I don’t like the hem

‘Skyline’ crop skinny jeans in optic white by Paige Denim
Size 26, $189
Undecided.  I want white skinnies but I am not sure I want to spend this much, especially now that it looks like flares and wide legs are everywhere!

Side view – I do like the clean lines of the fit

Shorts again from above
‘Kava’ Jacquard Knit Cotton tank by cupcakes and cashmere
XS, $95
I was very meh about this one, so definitely not worth $95
Neta leather wedge sandals by Hinge
I need more leg lengthening than these offer, so no 🙂  But I do like them.

Print pleat back sleeveless split neck blouse by NYDJ
XS, $78
Another one that did not bowl me over

Relaxed fit shirttail tee by Trouve
XS, $38
I have this in black from my last box and wear it constantly, but don’t really love the look of the  gray as much.
Shoes are Dallis Sandals by Splendid, $148.95
Not comfortable enough – all shoes get compared to my fave brand Camper and rarely does anything ever win.
Embroidered bib sleeveless top by Pleione
XS, $49
Another ‘meh’ to me

‘whisper’ cotton crewneck tee by Madewell
XS, $29.50
Undecided though leaning towards yes

Cutout jacquard romper by Adelyn Rae
XS, $98
I might have worn this 10 years ago.  Now I am not sure I can pull it off, and I don’t know where I would wear it!  Would consider this in a slightly longer short and maybe a solid color.
‘Sunfaded’ Ombre Stripe Tee by Splendid
XS, $88
Already wore this, so keeping 🙂
Yes, it’s pricey for a tee but I just love everything about it.

So there you have it!!  Thoughts?  Opinions??  Has anyone else tried Trunk Club (and by any chance, if you have and did a review, link in the comments!  I’d love to see.)

This is my 3rd trunk and I will say 95% of the choices I have made from the last 2 boxes are frequent wears for me, so I am going to stay with the service – probably sticking with a box every 3 months.  Part of me would prefer to have a boutique / small store where they knew me well — but this is just logistically easier right now.

    Love Paige denim, I love the last romper on you too! Find somewhere to wear it! I have the splendid stripe top and really like it. Comes in two more colors too. I had some madewell tshirts a year or so ago and hated them. They shrunk terribly and were too sheer. Maybe yours are better. I like the wrap jersey dress on you a lot.

    First off…. Clutter?? Wtf?? Are you drunk?

    Moving on, the white jeans make your butt look awesome, and I also liked the embroidered bib sleeveless top, and the wrap print jersey dress. I don’t think the neckline is too low at all. I agree with josh about the frayed bit on the shorts. I also like the grey t that you already have in black. Let us know what you decide!

    White jeans and wrap dress are very flattering. Jean shorts are +/-, a little pricy, do look good with the Halogen tank. I agree the last stripe tee is awesome.

    I love the white jeans and wrap dress on you. I definitely don’t think the neckline is too short for work (and I work in a conservative attire industry as well).

    You look fabulous in the white skinnies, they look like they were made for you and I would definitely keep them! I agree with your thoughts on all the tops, and I would keep the dress if I were you. It doesn’t look too low to me, but there tiny clear plastic snaps you can sew on in five minutes (or have a tailor do for you for a few dollars) at the inside of the overlapping parts of the wrapped top that won’t show and would solve the problem if you’re worried about the wrap style being too open. I liked the shorts and looked them up on Nordstrom’s site, it looks like you can buy the same ones without the distressed look hole if you want, maybe exchange those? I understand not having anywhere to wear the second romper, but I think you look great in that too!

    Keep the white jeans! They look amazing on you!

  • Reply Brittnie March 10, 2019 at 7:11 pm

    I like so many of these but esp the white jeans!!!

  • Reply Erika March 10, 2019 at 7:11 pm

    Agree with the masses – white jeans and the last romper are both amazing. There must be somewhere you can wear a cute romper in Miami Beach 🙂

  • Reply Laura Vanderkam March 10, 2019 at 7:11 pm

    I think I got those white skinnies in my last Nordstrom trunk too — and I’m not a real skinny jean person and I kept them! I’d vote for yes on yours. I have been told that white jeans are relatively easy – you just bleach them if there’s a problem. We shall see. But I wore them and a blue shirt and floral heels (also from my trunk) to a Cinco de Mayo party a few weeks ago and loved them.

    Additionally, firm abs last thing you choose is to hold back for hours that you simply transfer docs. If you can be moving substantial files which might be larger than the usual few kilobytes, you should consider the go speed on the drive.

    To begin with: Men together with women connected with ages attain very creative and incredibly convincing concerning justifying together with explaining to one side why success is now out in their own get to. I don”t imagine that some in their factors usually are valid in the physical entire world.
