Your Personal Styling Service

Hi friends and happy Monday!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  I’m recovering from a terrible stomach bug, and I’m praying today is much better than yesterday!  And that no one else in my fam gets it!  #fingerscrossed

Today is a new one for me, I’m used to scouring the stores and sales and putting together outfit options for you, but this time, Trunk Club, which is a Nordstrom Company, styled me for a change!  Someone must be wise to how much I shop there and I got an offer to try the Trunk Club and review it on my blog.  I’d heard about Trunk Club probably a year ago, but never joined because I’m always on the hunt myself for all the cutest things.  But, I must admit, it was kind of fun having a box of goodies arrive at my door without having to do the heavy lifting of picking them out!  I know very well how long that takes!  #toughjob;) 

My Trunk Club Review

Trunk Club – HOW IT WORKS

Before I get to all the fun things inside my first trunk, let me break it down for you about how Trunk Club works, in case you’re interested in getting a personal shopping stylist for yourself!

  • You sign up and are paired with a stylist who you can directly message through their site.  The stylist is a real person!  I’ve actually been DMing with one of the stylists on my Instastories and she was telling me how much she loves her job! You tell her what your style needs are, for example, workwear, night out, cute athleisure, etc. and she’ll put together a trunkload of clothes and accessories for you!
  • You can link your favorite Pinterest style boards for fashion inspiration.
  • You’ll get an email preview of the items in your trunk and you can let your stylist know what you’re not interested in before the trunk arrives so she can switch those items out.

Then the fun part begins when you receive your trunk! It’s kinda like Christmas morning except all of the gifts are for you and they’re all great quality!

  • You get to try on everything in the comfort of your own home. #nobadlightingplease
  • You have 5 days to decide what you want to keep.
  • Keep what you want, return what you don’t with preprinted return labels.  Schedule a free pick-up on the app, or drop off the Trunk at any UPS Store or Nordstrom store.
  • Leave your stylist feedback for the future.
  • Easy peasy!

WHAT’S INSIDE MY 1st TRUNK?!

The box the Trunk comes in is super cute- it’s an actual cardboard trunk with a plastic handle.  My mom answered the door when my Trunk arrived and was all giddy about what was inside! Me too!

Nordstrom Trunk Club

First up, they sent me a pair of high waist Citizens of Humanity jeans that I probably would not have ordered on my own because they are pricey!  But, I was curious to try them on and see how I liked them, and don’t ya know, I loved them!  They are that type of dark wash jean that give you the illusion of long, slender legs for days!  The high waist tucks you in, but is actually quite comfortable on this pair!

Trunk Club- striped ruffle top and high waist jeans

High Waist Skinny Jeans • Stripe Ruffle Trim Top • Ankle Strap Sandals

Jeans Fit: I sized down 1 to 24. They are obviously too long, but fit me everywhere else perfectly!

The striped ruffle sleeve top is darling and sort of a linen material.  It’s got the cutest button back and I like it with both the jeans and the shorts they sent!

Top Fit: TTS, I’m wearing Size XS. I’m wondering if I should exchange for the XXS? 

Trunk Club- pom pom shorts and striped top

Pompom Trim Shorts • Stripe Ruffle Trim Top • Ankle Strap Sandals

But how cute are these shorts?!  The petite pom poms at the hem are so fun with the circle cut outs! I’ve never seen shorts like this and I’m smitten! Plus, they have pockets!  They also come in a bold red!

Shorts Fit: TTS, I’m wearing XS 

The Ankle Strap Sandals are a winner for sure!  They are similar to the nude stiletto heels I wear all the time, but with a chunkier heel that’s a bit more comfortable for longer wear.

This next outfit on the left I doubt I would have ordered.  This is exactly the point of Trunk Club- to get you to discover things you might not have otherwise tried on.  But, I really liked the dressy, tie front shorts.  The white background and floral pattern is so fresh for Spring, especially paired with a light blue top.  The off shoulder top on the left is nice because it has a shoulder strap to keep the top up and is a relaxed counterpart to the slim shorts.  It’s probably one size too big on me though.

Of course I like the v-neck Madewell tee- I already have it in black and white stripe and coral- but I didn’t have the blue and that color is fantastic.

Trunk Club- white off shoulder top

Ruffle Trim Off the Shoulder Top

Off Shoulder Top Fit: Probably runs a little small, wearing Size XS and it fits perfectly.  

This little top is something I probably would have overlooked, but I actually liked it when I tried it on!  It’s a cute flirty top that’s great for a summer night out or even weekend day with jean shorts.  It makes me think a trip to the beach is in order! It also comes in 5 other, pretty neutral colors.

Trunk Club- navy off shoulder dress

Off the Shoulder Fit & Flare Dress

Fit: TTS, I’m wearing Size XS, but need XSP.

If you have a Spring wedding or party to attend, this would be a perfect dress to wear.  The material is nice and thick and although it’s off-the-shoulder, it’s still quite comfortable with a lot of stretch and easy to move in. It’s hard to tell in the photo, but it’s navy and not black, which feels less severe for Spring.

Trunk Club- navy and fascia fit and flare dress

Navy & Fuchsia Fit & Flare Dress

Fit: Slim fit, wearing Size XS, which fits me perfectly.

Now this is a cute dress! The style is a bit retro in the fit and flare cut and slight puffed sleeves.  It’s also navy and the dots are white and fuscia!  You really have to see the back because there’s a cute keyhole cutout and it ties in a bow at the top.

Trunk Club- big chunky necklace

Oversize Link Statement Necklace

I was also immediately taken with this bold white link necklace, but when I tried it on, it felt overwhelming on me.  Maybe I need to try it on with something else and then decide because I really like it! It’s plastic, so although it makes a statement, it’s incredibly lightweight.

Trunk Club- scallop flat sandal

Scalloped Flat Sandal

Fit: TTS 

These flat sandals have a cute scallop detail, but they felt too flat on my feet.  Maybe it’s my arch or just a personal preference, but I didn’t care for them.  No big deal, I’ll just send them back with the prepaid shipping label!

My Trunk Club Review

That was pretty fun, now the tough part is deciding what to keep!! If the idea of someone else going through the store and picking out all the best outfits for you sounds intriguing, you can sign up here!

Are you a Trunk Club member?  Or do you prefer shopping on your own?!

    I just signed up a few weeks ago and my first trunk shipped a few days ago. I’m stepping out of my comfort zone a bit with the picks but we’ll see…I probably need to be DM’ing my stylist more so I’m going to go do that now.

      I found the stylist to be very helpful and responsive! The more you communicate with them, the closer to your style they’ll get, but it’s good to see what they choose that you might have passed up!

    I want to order the pompom shorts and stripe shirt, but the links go straight to the trunk club. Do I have to go through them to order?

      Hi Lindsey! For this collaboration with Trunk Club, I had to link everything to them, but they are all available for purchase directly at Nordstrom. 😉

    I have been with Trunk Club for a little over a year now and absolutely love them! My stylist is incredible – we DM each other just to chat after my first box arrived. I still do my own shopping but getting a Trunk really does make you step out of your comfort zone a bit. I love that you can pause your Trunks if you want. Such a convenient service!

    I love Trunk Club, the quality of the items is fantastic. They waive the styling fee if you use your Nordstrom card and you still collect reward points. A double win! I live far away from. Nordstrom.. about an hour or more so this is the best way to pick up new outfits for work, events and weekends. Love my stylist!
