Trunk Club for Women: Winter 2017

Trunk Club for Women: Winter 2017 |www.pearlsandsportsbras.com|

I don’t know how many times I’ve said it – finding a Trunk on my doorstep always feels like Christmas morning! Speaking of which, I was given Trunk Club cash as holiday gifts and really couldn’t wait to request one. First I quickly compiled a little list of things I wanted to try for my stylist. This included a moto jacket and faux leather leggings. My stylist, Angela, quickly got to work rounding up a trunk for me and within days it was on my doorstep. Find out how I made out below!

Trunk Club:

1. Sign up and take a very brief style survey. You’ll fill out a personal profile and provide your stylist with links to your Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, etc.

2. Your stylist will handpick a selection of items for you to review online. After you provide your feedback, and your trunk is finalized, it’s shipped directly to your house.

3. You have 5 days to try on and decide on which items to keep. They provide you with shipping labels and tape strips so when you’re ready to ship the rest back, you schedule a pickup with UPS.

4. Fees: A $25 home try-on fee is charged to your account per trunk and this cash is credited towards any purchase you make.

What to Expect:

Your stylist is YOURS. Like, forever. She (or he) will want to get to know you. My stylist sent me an email with very specific style questions. Additionally, your stylist will expect communication via a telephone call, which I thought was required but others have said they didn’t have to participate in this part of this service (I could have done without). On the other hand, if that’s your thing, you can call your stylist whenever you want.

The clothing inventory is pulled from NORDSTROM, so there’s a vast selection at a wide range of price points. Be sure to point out to your stylist where you’d like to stay, price-wise or you will receive a $300 cashmere sweater.

You will be sent 10-15 pieces ranging from tops, bottoms, shoes, scarves, and accessories. Really, ask for anything. During your preview you can remove items from your trunk and they won’t be sent. Your stylist may add new items for you before sending so some of what you receive is a surprise.

Ask for a trunk whenever you want. This is more of a concierge service than a scheduled delivery. If requesting a trunk for a specific event allow enough time for communication and for your stylist to pull pieces and ship.

A sincere huge THANK YOU to all those that have allowed me to refer them! I hope you are all loving this service, I’d love to hear back from you about what you received and what you thought!

Trunk Club for Women: Winter 2017

First, here’s what I didn’t photograph:

trunkclubwinter2Trouve Leather Moto Jacket | Vince Camuto Layered Sweater

nikerosheNike Roshe Two

Trouve Leather Moto Jacket: This jacket looked and felt luxurious and comfortable. It honestly probably would have been a keeper for me but I never even had the chance to try it on. On first inspection I noticed a small tear in the sleeve so I returned it.

Vince Camuto Layered Look Sweater: I love the “layered look” style. I have a similar top from H&M in grey and white so would have liked a different color combo. It was also too large on me.

Nike Roshe Two: Initially Angela sent the all-black style but I requested that she also send white if they were available. Luckily they were and in a separate trunk she sent both the white and grey options. I had a really tough time deciding which to keep but ultimately went with my gut and kept the white.

 Madewell Chorus Scoop Back Tee $25.20: Kept

I mean. Is this not my color or what? It’s a pretty, comfy, well-fitted tee. The low scoop in the back is a cute surprise. What was there to say no to?

Jamie Coated Skinny Jeans by Topshop $80: Returned

Angela really did send me the perfect pair of faux leather jeans. These looked so much better than I thought they would and they were super flattering. They were just SO uncomfortable. Because they were coated they were extremely stiff and thick and I felt like I couldn’t move in them. I sent them back solely based on comfort because I know if I find something uncomfortable, regardless of how great a piece is, I won’t wear it.

Chelsea28 Organza Bow Sweatshirt $89: Returned

What looks like a pretty sweater at first glance actually turned out to be very very wrong. The organza underlay was really itchy and uncomfortable. And then there was the back, which was wide open. This meant you couldn’t also wear a bra with this sweater.

Pleione Stripe Knit Bell Sleeve Top $49: Returned

In my trunk preview it looked like this top was coming in a pretty light pink color but it was this stripe version that arrived. Other than being a bit too big there’s nothing really bad to say about the top, other than I wish it was in the pink option.

Bobeau Cold Shoulder Print Sweatshirt $49: Returned

Trunk Club Review January 2017 |www.pearlsandsportsbras.com|Trunk Club Review January 2017 |www.pearlsandsportsbras.com|Shirt | Jeans

This sweater was so soft and cozy! I adored the pretty print too. I can’t say that I’m ready to hop on the cold-shoulder train so I did opt to send this one back.

Treasure & Bond Off the Shoulder Fleece Knit Dress $79: Returned

Sometimes my stylist thinks I’m supermodel tall and can pull off these trendy dresses but the reality is I have to suck in really really hard to get a decent picture just to show you. The dress itself was sooo soft and comfortable but it really did not flatter my shorter frame (I swear).

Kate Spade Tiered Lace Flounce Tee $115: Returned

dsc_3152Shirt

I like the idea of this shirt – lace peplum. It fit short on me and the lace layers were see-through so it couldn’t be worn to work.

BLANKNYC Destroyed Skinny Jeans Charmed Life $98: Returned

Maybe it is just me but there was just TOO much destruction in these jeans. Between all of the patching and tears in the hem they just kind of felt ugly to me. They did fit well – as BLANKNYC always seem to so I was almost willing to look past all the things I didn’t like about them.
