Trunk Club Review #2 + WW Link Up

Trunk Club Review
*This post contains affiliate links.

Hey everyone!  Last week I received my second Trunk Club, and it was a great one!  In fact, out of all the personal styling services that I use, this was my favorite shipment yet.  I have to admit, it was tough narrowing down what to keep, as I pretty much wanted to keep it all.  If you don't have time (or like) to shop, then I highly recommend this service.  I'm sharing everything that was in my Trunk below, plus you can view my try-on session on my Instagram Stories @thomasrachael.

If you're unfamiliar with Trunk Club, it's a personal styling service that is owned by Nordstrom.  Some cities (Boston being one) have clubhouses where you can shop with a personal stylist in person.  However, if you're unable to make it to a Clubhouse, you can sign up online and have a Trunk sent to your home!  After signing up and creating your profile (which is quick and easy), you are assigned a stylist who will then message you to learn about your style preferences.  I loved that I had an open conversation with my stylist as she got to know my style, and I could easily tell her what I was looking for and wanting to add to my closet.  Your stylist then puts together a package (Trunk) of 12 items to send to you, all to try on in the comfort of your own home.  You have 5 days to decide what you want to keep or send back, then you can either schedule a pick up of your Trunk (in the prepaid package provided), or drop it off at your local Nordstrom store.  Also, if you like an item and it's the wrong size, or want it in a different color, you can exchange it!  The best part is, you get to preview everything that your stylist sends in your Trunk beforehand!  That way, if there was something you know you don't want, you can simply have it switched out for another item!

There is a $25 styling fee with each Trunk.  If you end up keeping any items, then the $25 is put towards your purchase.  If you have a Nordstrom credit card, then the fee is waived!  You can sign up for Trunk Club here.

Trunk Club Review

1. Vince Camuto Flutter Sleeve Blouse.  I love the cut and fit of this blouse! The flutter sleeves add a fun and feminine detail, and I love how this blouse can work for both the office, or for a night out with the girls.  This blouse runs true to size (I'm wearing the small) and is available in 4 colors.

2. Vince Camuto Reeista Bootie.  (On sale for under $100) These booties are perfect for the fall!  I love the cut out detailing and wooden heel.  They're also available in black a grey, and run true to size.  Normally, these would have been a keeper for me, but I already own a similar pair, so I sent these back.

3. Harlyn Burnout Velvet Dress.  I have to admit, when I saw this dress sitting in my Trunk, I was not a fan.  I wasn't digging the velvet florals along with the lace inset.  However, after trying it on, I fell in love with the cut!  The dress is super flattering and the florals grew on me. It would be the perfect dress for attending a winter wedding.  Unfortunately, I don't have one coming up, so this dress went back.  

If you love the velvet florals, but not the lace inset, you will love this dress here.

4. 1. State Ditsy Drift Flutter Sleeve Dress.  I am obsessed with this dress!  I love the pattern, cut, and fit.  It also makes a great option for a fall or winter wedding, or can be worn more casually with a leather jacket and booties.

5. TrouvĂ© Drape Front Leather Jacket.  If you're looking for a great leather jacket, then this is it! The leather is so soft, and I love the drape.  It's also a great price point for a real leather, and comes in three colors.  Because I already have a closet full of leather jackets, both real a faux, ended up sending this one back.  (If it were in my budget this month, I would have kept it though!!)

6. Madewell Stripe Crop Tee.  This tee is adorable, and I'm loving the two tone stripes.  It's a heavier weight material, making it perfect for transitioning into fall, plus the cropped cut looks great with high waist pants or jeans.

7. Halogen Wide Leg Pants. I've been loving the wide leg, cropped pant look, and was excited to try this pair after seeing them in my Trunk.  Although I love the fit, and the fact that they can be worn with sandals now and boots when it gets cold, I just don't need them at this time.  I rarely wear black pants, so for my next Trunk, I'll probably ask for this style in a denim!

8. Free People East Coast Top.  By now, you know that I'm a big fan of Free People, and this top had my name on it.  The material is very soft, making it wearable for daytime, but I love that it can easily be dressed up for a date night out.  The V neck does come pretty low, so when I wear it for daytime, I'll layer a camisole under it.  I actually own this Free People camisole, which looks great with it!

9. 1901 Pinstripe Jumpsuit. This is another item that I absolutely love, but didn't keep since I have nowhere to wear it.  This cropped jumpsuit is be perfect for the office paired with a blazer, but is also a great option for grabbing drinks or an event, as the back adds a fun and sexy twist.  It is super flattering, and runs true to size (I'm wearing a 4).

Also included in my Trunk, but not shown:

10. BP. Stitch Curve Hem Cardigan.  This cardigan is a classic, and such a good fall basic.  It looks great with jeans, or layered over dresses, and is available in 6 colors.  I do have to say it's very lightweight, making it ideal for early fall, and not the best sweater for the winter months.

11. Madewell High Rise Slim Boyfriend Jeans.  I love the shape of these jeans, but I was sent a size too large, making them unflattering.  I should request to try them in the size down, as I'm a fan of Madewell Jeans!

  4. The neckline on the floral dress is beautiful. I love how you changed the look by adding the motto jacket.

  5. What a great idea. I don't think any retailers do the trunk service here in the UK, just personal shopping. Some great pieces. I pretty much loved them all, particularly the velvet inset dress and black cropped pants.

  6. Thanks for the link up

  8. Those are such awesome finds! I love the idea of the trunk club. Sometimes its great to see what others pick for you vs gravitating to the same pieces over and over, which I totally do! haha

  9. I didn't realize this was owned by Nordstrom. You look cute in everything!

  13. OMG you got such great items!! I want to try Trunk Club! Sounds awesome

  14. You got some really great pieces! But I think a big part of that is the fact that you look amazing in everything! I love that jumpsuit on you, but I agree it would be hard to find a place to wear it if you don't work in a office.
