• Spring Refresh with Trunk Club

    I was recently asked to try Trunk Club‘s newer women’s styling service, and wanted to share my experience as someone who usually spends more time shopping due to fit challenges. I get daily messages from ladies requesting help with their shopping needs (ranging from picking out special occasion outfits, to helping with building an everyday wardrobe) – I am not a personal shopper myself, but think Trunk Club’s free service would be perfect for someone who is short on time or would like professional styling. After signing up online, I was matched with a stylist, Zoey, who reached out to chat about my style, body type, measurements, as well as anything either in general or in particular (ie. events or trips) that I was currently shopping for. I mentioned I generally love to mix high end + low end, and stressed the importance of fit on my shorter frame. I told her I’d love to see a mix of both classic and trendy pieces for a refresh on spring wardrobe basics.

There was a range of price points and pieces (along with mix-and-match pairing suggestions!) from classics like Equipment silk blouses and Rag & Bone jeans, to fast fashion items from Topshop and smaller labels I hadn’t seen before. What I especially appreciated was the range of sizing in my trunk (in both regular and petites) based on what Zoey knew about certain brands and specific pieces running bigger or smaller, longer or shorter – taking the guesswork out of gauging size when shopping online. After receiving a trunk, you get 10 days to try on your items at home and only pay for what you want to keep, with free shipping both ways. There is no stylist fee, and it’s not a subscription service so you only request a trunk from your stylist whenever you want one.

    Here are some of the items I tried on from my trunk, including a Topshop striped tee, Paige jeans, and Joie jacket – all in a range of sizing that each fit my frame well:

    Trying on a few more pieces from my trunk – I had asked for classic denim short options that were casual but at a modest length with cuffs:

    My favorite piece in my trunk has to be a pair of Rag & Bone jeans (worn below) that I likely would’ve never found on my own. The stock photo for this style & wash looks very different online, but in-person it’s a weathered vintage blue wash that I strive for when denim shopping (and had mentioned to my stylist). They are actually labeled capris but Zoey guessed they’d fit my shorter legs perfectly as regular jeans, and she was spot-on about that down to the distressing placement.

    For those who live in NYC, Dallas, Chicago, LA or DC, Trunk Club also has physical clubhouse locations where you can set up a time to try on all the items your stylist pulled for you in-person. Something that I thought was really awesome is they offer free basic alterations on items you decide to purchase at your sessions. Thank you to Trunk Club for partnering on this post!

      Everything looks so cute on you! Did you wind up keeping anything else besides the jeans?

    • Chicago Petite April 9, 2016 at 10:10 pm

      Hmm I just may need to try Trunk Club here in Chi! Do you mind sharing the brand & style name of denim shorts you're wearing? They look like exactly what I want. You look great in all those pieces!

      All of the styles that your stylist put together looks really good together. I've heard of the Trunk Club (first from my fiance, if you can believe that!) and it's been on my radar since then. Glad to read that you had a good experience.

      I just love this green blouse – so perfect for spring! The striped off-the-shoulder top is so great as well 🙂

      Can you tell me the style name of the Rag and Bone jeans?

      I used Trunk Club this fall and really disliked it. I found the woman who helped me to be incredibly pushy – once I sent a box back, she immediately sent a new box without taking my feedback (or desire for a new box) into account. Furthermore, I specifically requested colorful items, since I always wear black/grey/white, and she consistently sent me… black/grey/white items. I was disappointed with the overall experience.

    • Jenn April 10, 2016 at 11:41 am

      I love all of these pieces but my favorite are the jeans and the bright yellow/green top!

      I've noticed you've mentioned Equipment blouses before. I love the feel of those blouses, but they are way too big (and I'm a similar size as you). How do you make those blouses work for you? Do you get them tailored? Thanks!

    • Bita Arabian April 10, 2016 at 1:10 pm

      Thanks for sharing- I've tried Stitch a fix a few times with mixed results. I had never heard of Trunk Club before your post – thank you for sharing, I will def try it. Can you tell me the specifics of the striped off the shoulder top? That is adorable! I would love to try it on. Thanks!

      Thanks for this review! I like that it's not a subscription service that you have to keep using.

      Lovely jeans–I agree that they're fantastic!

      I think the jean shorts are Paige. It looks like the tag says so 😉

    • Nicole Giaquinto April 11, 2016 at 8:14 pm

      After a bit of research and a reply back from @trunkclub the striped shirt is from topshop.

    • Nicole Giaquinto April 11, 2016 at 8:14 pm

      How do you get your polish to stay looking good? My Essie polish chips after a day!

      Did you speak up about your dislike/the things that were bothering you? She may have just been trying to be proactive; but didn't know it was off-putting.

    • Jean April 11, 2016 at 10:18 pm

      I only purchased the jeans this time, but I was impressed by the fit and style of the other items selected!

    • Jean April 11, 2016 at 10:20 pm

      Hi! The brand was Paige but unfortunately I can't find the style name – sorry!

    • Jean April 11, 2016 at 10:20 pm

      yes!

    • Jean April 11, 2016 at 10:20 pm

      Hi! I use a Canon 6D and a 50mm 1.4 lens in this post

    • Jean April 11, 2016 at 10:21 pm

      Thanks! It's by Topshop

    • Jean April 11, 2016 at 10:25 pm

      I'm sorry to hear that! I've worked with a few stylists before (from different companies) and have learned to be very assertive about what I like and about giving feedback. I hope the stylist you got is in the minority since I would be disappointed about that too. Also, not sure if you had the option last year, but now there is an online preview of items from your stylist before they get shipped out, so you can reject or provide feedback prior to each box shipping.

    • Jean April 11, 2016 at 10:26 pm

      They definitely are a roomy fit so I wear mine mostly casually. I got the sleeves shortened on this one, but also have another one that I just wear with the sleeves double cuffed up.

    • Jean April 11, 2016 at 10:26 pm

      Sure – it is by Topshop!
