I love the subscription box model. That's why I am trying our Trunk Club. Like Stitch Fix, it's a box model. Both businesses rely on stylists to match clothes to clients. It's meant to be convenient--an answer to shopping problems for busy women.
For my first box, I had to fill our a profile. It took just a few minutes and I was done. My stylist Angela, suggested a bunch of clothes online, I gave er feedback and then my first box was on the way to me.
The clever packaging was nice. Indeed, it looked like a trunk. I was surprised to get 10 pieces. I have to admit, I don't remember signing up for that.
Some were great. Some were meh. Some were awful. But hey, Angele and I are just getting to know one another and the return shipping is free. I'm sharing two things that I returned (an outfit that I kept is coming up in a few weeks)--these were two things that almost worked.
The tops were too big. This Splendid fringe tank came the closest to fitting. I ended up returning them all. As you can see from this Splendid top, it's too baggy and the color is wrong, wrong, wrong for me. I did compare prices and the Trunk Club price was the same as the Splendid price ($68). BUT Nordstrom had it for $51! Let's be clear. This is about convenience and service not getting the best price.
Ok, what else? While I love scarves, this one wasn't the right colors to work with things I already own. So I sent it back. I have no remorse.
To make the outfit, I got some booties from my closet and a pair of cabi cargo pants. There is new new thing I will be keeping--this rose gold Crystal Mason ring from Bauble Bar. I've been wearing this fun ring a ton these past few weeks. It's a keeper.
Trying Out Trunk Club
What works: Angela was very easy to work with. She was very responsive to emails and made the interaction great. There is also no minimum purchase and all the shipping is free.
What doesn't work: The five-day turn-around. It's too fast. I've got a busy travel schedule and can't always get things back quickly. Maybe you are more responsible than I, but this is my deal breaker.
