Last year, I had heard that Trunk Club worked with the Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale so I wanted to get a trunk during the sale. However, they decided this year for that not to be the case unless you went into a showroom. I decided to get a trunk anyway because I like two a year. I had an awesome stylist but she left the company sometime in June. So I had a new stylist. I will admit this was frustrating because it took over a week of me saying “Yes, I want a trunk” for anything to happen. Then when I got the preview of like 10 items, I said no to over half. I ended up getting my trunk with only 7 items, the 5 I approved and then only 2 new pieces. I was hoping for about 12 items to choose from as we have a wedding to go to, family photos and it is back to school time. So I was disappointed from the start. The sad part, I requested a trunk for my husband too and his new stylist(we use to have the same) has not gotten back to me in close to 2 weeks.
Here is how it works:
- Fill out a survey that asks for your sizes, measurements, likes and dislikes, what does your closet need.
- I sent my stylist a couple of photos of me so she could see my body shape.
- Your stylists will send you a preview where you can tell them what not to send and why not.
- They send the box. They send between 7-15 items. I have 10 in mine. It comes looking like a trunk and has all the things you need to send it back free of charge. You can even have it picked up from your house.
- Try on and give feedback. Send back what you don’t want. You do not get charged until they get it back.
- There is a $25 try-on fee but it comes out of your total.
Here is what I got:
BP. Lula Block Heel Slingback Sandal $59.99
The color is a light blush color and this shoe is suede. It is really pretty and fit well. It was also pretty comfortable. I am undecided though because to me it looks a little too Cher Horowitz (which I love her but it is also not 1995 anymore).
Eliza J Jersey Printed Dress $128
I wanted this dress to work so bad. I love the bottom little skirt part. I just think it is a sweet print which would be perfect for a wedding. However, this dress is so tight and shows everything. I look pregnant in this photo and I am not.
BP. LS Side slit Tee $19
Don’t mind my PJ shorts. I hatred this shirt when I saw it (Long-sleeve white shirt…boring) but it is really soft. Then I hated it on because it seemed big. I read the reviews and it is supposed to be so that you could wear it with leggings. Now I might keep it because I do like oversized and it is comfortable. Plus, if I do not get anything then I am wasting my $25 so this shirt would be free to keep anyway.
BP. Twist Front Tee $22
I do not like this shirt. I feel that the twist knot thing looks weird in the front where it is at.
Items I received but have no pictures because they didn’t fit at all:
Vince Camuto Texture Base Straight Leg Crop $89
The stylists sent me the wrong size. I could not button them up.
Adrianna Papell Scalloped Crepe Sheath Dress $98
It was hot pink which I like but looked straight out of 1983 and not in a good way. Plus it was too small in the boobs so I couldn’t zip it up.
Vince Camuto Ruffle Fit & Flare Dress $148
Besides the high cost, it again would not zip up past my boobs. This dress is so cute though. It is a nice coral color and would have loved to see it fit. Some people might say just ask for a bigger size but since it fit perfectly everywhere else, like my waist, then it will be too big.
So there is my trunk. Yes, I am disappointed. Will I do it again? Maybe next year with a different stylists.
