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.
Trunk Club Review Round 3: Summer gearMay 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
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
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
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
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
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
Another one that did not bowl me over
Relaxed fit shirttail tee by Trouve
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
Another ‘meh’ to me
‘whisper’ cotton crewneck tee by Madewell
Undecided though leaning towards yes
Cutout jacquard romper by Adelyn Rae
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
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.)
