Good morning, friends! I hope everyone here on the east coast is managing to stay dry today. It’s definitely coming down out there. I hope it lets up before tonight because I have a dinner date.
The kids have their own plans, and it’s been a while since Paul and I’ve gone out, plus I’m going to be gone for a few days next week so we thought we’d take advantage of the opportunity to get out and catch up over some good food and wine.
Trunk Club Unboxing
Today I want to share my latest Trunk Club unboxing with you. For those who are uninitiated, Trunk Club is Nordstrom’s virtual styling service.
(I’m not working with them; I just enjoy seeing what they pick out for me, and sometimes they find great pieces that I didn’t notice on my own. I do share my referral link, and if you try it, I get a credit to spend on a future Trunk Club purchase. If you sign up, you will also receive a referral link to share with your friends.)
So let’s get started!
Alice + Olivia Gia Cold Shoulder Blouse $225 // This top is pretty, and it fits well, but it is see-through and I don’t care for how the cami shows in the neckline. And then there’s the issue of the price… it’s going back.
Sam Edelman Hazel Indigo Fabric Pumps $128 // I love these but they’re a half size too big. And while I love them, I’m not sure I’d wear them enough to justify the price tag. Still, super fun if they’re your thing! (And I swear by these pumps… they are very comfortable for pumps.)
(The jeans are mine.)
Willow & Clay Floral Print Blouse $79 // I love this, and I kept it. I might wear it out to dinner tonight! It’s different for me, but I think it’s pretty and flattering. I’m going to try pairing it with white jeans or maybe my black jeans.
Paige Cecile Top $188 // This top looks a lot better on the model on the website than it does on me. It’s kind of boxy. I was disappointed, because when I previewed my trunk, I had high hopes for this one. On the other hand, I was kind of relieved because it’s more than I like to spend on my tops.
Mural Curve Open Front Shawl Collar Blazer $74 // I like this a lot, but I have several blazers now, and I just don’t wear them that much, so I sent it back. It has a nice fit, and it comes in 5 colors, so if you wear blazers to work, definitely take a look at this one.
(Shoes are mine.)
Trouve Tie Front Knit Top $52 // I love this. It’s soft and comfy and just a little bit different with that tie waist. I think it’s going to be fun with jeans and shorts for summer.
Paige Hoxton High Waist Ankle Peg Skinny Jeans $160 // These were all kinds of wrong, lol. They are too small, for one thing. My stylist sent the 28 because that’s what I wear in most other brands, but I always have to size up in Paige. And for an “ankle length” pant, they are too long on me, and the split hem would make them hard to alter. That said, if you’re a tall girl, these might be perfect for you! I do like the wash and the distressing and the side slits at the hem. Just remember to size up.
Diane von Furstenberg Sleeveless Poplin Top $268 // This top was too small in the size 6, and I was kind of relieved because it isn’t in my budget at the moment. The pictures weren’t appropriate for public consumption, thus the stock photo. Haha! Needless to say, that went back.
So I hope that was fun. I kept two tops, and I consider that a successful trunk. I don’t really want to commit to a lot more than that in one order, but I enjoy trying things on and discovering new styles even if they don’t work out.
Oh, and I did go ahead and order the similar Eliza J dress. I feel like I’m way overdue for a dress post, and that is one I think I will get some wear out of this summer. It will be nice for church and for any other event that requires a more casual dress that might crop up.
If you want to try Trunk Club, you can specify your budget limitations, so don’t let some of these prices hold you back. They still like to throw one or two splurge-worthy items in there to tempt you, but I appreciate the opportunity to experience brands I might not normally try. It’s a good way to discover new brands and new items you may not spot online or in the store, and it’s a great service for busy women who don’t have time to shop, and for those who just don’t like to shop.
