Trunk Club Review: May 2016

Can you tell that I am loving this service?! For an explanation of Trunk Club and to see my previous trunks you can click the links below:


Lets start off with the things I will not be providing photos of:
All items above were returned as they are not really my style nor did they fit very well.

These high waisted shorts I was torn about because they are on trend and fit amazing. I ultimately chose to return them, I am really not sure how incorporate them in my everyday wear to make them worth the price. The tank was returned as well, I just didn't love it or need it.

Comfortable but way too big - Returned

Super cute but the fabric was a little stiff for my taste - Returned

I was really hoping this world work, it would have been perfect for a nice dinner while on vacation. Not to mention it was on sale from $158 to $59. Sadly, the dress was too large. - Returned

Again, I wish I was attending a million weddings this year. How stunning is the back if this dress? I love the detail on the back where the fabric parts and exposes a thick gold zipper. - Returned 

WOW... I would have never looked twice at this dress in the store but I love that it is so different and stunning! (Also, on sale for $70) - Unsure


Decisions, decisions, this little number would look fabulous for a dinner on the beach! The fate of this beauty will result on the previous dress, and my pocketbook of course! - Unsure

Finally, the shoes!! Although I love the tan pair and the simplicity of them, I have far, FAR too many shoes - Returned

So I will say it again, if you haven't tried Trunk Club you need to ASAP:

Trunk Club Review: April 2016

If you are unaware of what Trunk Club is you can check my previous post here: Trunk Club Review: March 2016. With some vacations in my future I thought it would be fun to reach out to my stylist and request a trunk with all vacation clothing. My stylist Lindsay did not disappoint with this trunk, lets get to it: 

This dress was adorable but was a little too big and showed off a little too much cleavage for my taste:
Returned

I liked this dress when I saw the picture but the fabric was too stiff and itchy:
Returned

I was really torn about this dress, I love the style but something in the sizing was just off:
Returned

Oh my goodness can someone please get married?! I need to own this dress and have an event to wear it to... until then:
Returned

Too snug in the waist and too big in the bust... never had that problem before...:
Returned

This dress felt like pajamas...I want to live in this dress!! Back to reality: the dress is $178 and is a tad too big:
Returned

Love, love, love... but the fabric is extremely heavy and would be too warm in hot climates:
Returned

Too cute... but too expensive:
Returned

This shirt was actually on sale from $79... I like it but it's nothing special:
Returned

I would never pick these out or try them on but they are beautiful and so comfortable!:
Kept

Size large... Too big:
Returned

If this jumpsuit didn't have pockets that sit on the hips it would have been a real contender:
Returned

Itchy, itchy, itchy:
Returned

Lets be honest... I do not need shoes:
Returned &
Returned

Looking at the fact that I only bought one item, you would think this trunk was unsuccessful. BUT this service does exactly what I want it to do. It opens up my style and helps me step outside of the comfort zone. I would have never purchased or even looked twice that the pair of pants I choose to keep, but now I want to wear them everyday. I don't want to collect clothes but add a piece here and there that I am 100% in love with. 

Again if you are interested you can click the link below to be connected with my stylist Lindsay:


Happy Shopping!
