Time for another Trunk Club review! This time, I asked my stylist Jayme to fill a box with some cute stuff to wear on our upcoming vacation. I have a pretty good handle on what I'm going to pack, but since she had sent me a trunk anyway and I have some credit with them, I decided to see what she could come up with.
If you're new to Trunk Club, it's an at-home personal styling service owned by Nordstrom. You have a direct line to your own personal stylist, so you can call them, chat with them, and even send them your Pinterest boards. If there's something in particular you're looking for (say, a black dress), your stylist can send you several options to try on in the comfort of your own home. Try everything on, keep what you want, and send back the rest! I've found that Trunk Club is HIGHLY more personalized than the other styling services I've used, and I love that they include the more affordable Nordstrom brands like Treasure & Bond and Halogen.
No shoes this time, so it was a cute small box full of dresses, tops, and shorts for my upcoming trip to Paris and Nice. Let's try on!
Knotted Sleeve T-Shirt Dress, PST by Project Social T, $49.
Jayme knows I love black dresses - especially t-shirt dresses, since I've bought at least three from her already. This is a light, summery tee dress with a really cute little cutout detail on the sleeve. It's a little similar to the one I own from Calston, so I passed.
Can I say that this legit felt like a nightgown? In a good way - I know a lot of blogger's clothing lines can be hit or miss on quality, but this was very well made and SO soft. It definitely hugs the curves, so I was a little self conscious about how my stomach looked in this one. I'm also not a huge brown fan - if this had been a solid color like black or red, I probably would have kept it.
This dress was such a pleasant surprise! Honestly, when I pulled it out of the box I thought it was going to be a shapeless bag, but the elastic waist gives it a really cute shape. With the sleeves fully extended, it really didn't do too much for my frame, but I like it with the sleeves pushed up. The fabric is really light and airy as well; I could definitely see myself sipping some rosé by the beach in this dress! It's in my "probably keeping" pile right now.
Aniya Surplice Silk Minidress, $298.
This dress is *so* me. It's another one I'm trying to justify keeping, even though I have 50,000 black dresses. The silk is super soft and the shape is so modern. The fabric - and wrinkles - might be a little annoying to fight on a trip, especially since I'm stuffing everything in a carry on, but this would be a great transition piece into fall. Please talk me out of it. Or don't.
I normally really like Rails clothing, but I'm pretty sure I had this dress as a child. Cute for someone, but hard pass from me.
Fun fact, Tularosa is my Pokemon trainer name on Pokemon Go. ANYWAY, there's a lot going on with this top. I actually liked it a lot, and would 1000% buy if I were attending The University of Texas. It's super soft and the detailing is really pretty, I just knew I wouldn't get as much wear out of it as I'd like since it's a little too shouldery for the office.
Jayme has a spiritual gift for finding great shorts. These are truly so comfy and stretchy that I would wear them all the time. The top of my thighs did seem to want to eat them a bit so they might not be the best fit for my body, but I know someone out there would absolutely love them.
Loved both of these items, just no room for them in my closet! BlankNYC must just make great shorts, because these were just as comfy as the other pair. I do think these fit my body a little bit better, but I already have black cutoffs so we had to part ways. The keyhole tank was very cute too, but the last thing I need in my closet is another black tank. Great price though - just $35 - plus it comes in five different colors.
Once again, I am continually surprised by what I get in my trunks. While I didn't end up buying as much this time, I really liked a lot of the items even if they weren't what I needed right now. If you want to try Trunk Club out, please consider using my link to join! I will get a small credit to shop with, which means even MORE TC reviews in the future. The service is FREE for Nordstrom card holders, or $25 if you don't have a card. That $25 styling fee will be applied to anything you purchase, so it feels like free money since you've already paid it and the trunk is risk-free.
