Stitch Fix Review No. 5

Welcome back! It’s that (fun!) time of the month again, my monthly (or sometime’s semi-monthly.. shhh!) fix is here!! Last time I changed stylists, and was so happy with Emily- my new stylist, so I was excited to see what she had in store for me this time around. When I ordered this fix, I told Emily in my note that I was looking for colored jeans, and fun summer tops in NEON or Neutrals. If you don’t know what Stitch Fix is then you can read any of my other Stitch Fix blogs by clicking Here Here or Here and I explain the process of how it all works, and if you found yourself here reading tons of Stitch Fix blogs trying to decide if you sign up or not, just do it already! At the bottom of this post is a link for you to sign up with to make it super easy, but more about that later.

Ok lets just jump in feet first and see what I got this time, shall we?

  1. Skies are Blue Jemma Crochet Front Knit Top: Size XS: $54.00

IMG_4321

Top: Skies are Blue Jemma Crochet Front Knit Top / Jewelry: Rocks Box

This top is simple but the crochet front makes it fun, with out feeling like your great grandma’s couch. It’s a great shirt for both work and weekends, summer and under a great  sweater or jacket in the fall/winter. The off white color basically makes it the perfect shirt for any pair of jeans that you throw it’s way. It’s just a tad looser than I would like, but not to the point of sending it back. I’m definitely seeing a trend with Stitch Fix: Their clothes always run big, and I wish that they sold clothes in XXS. Although they do offer Petite and Maternity. For you fabulous Plus Size ladies in the world, Stitch Fix will be offering plus sizes sometime early next year, I’ve heard. Total Keeper

Jeans: Lila Ryan Dorianna Skinny Jean

Okay so I have to admit that I’m a “Peeker” when it comes to my Stitch Fix’s. If you are familiar with Stitch Fix then I’m sure you know what I am talking about. If you have the Stitch Fix app on your I-PHONE-(only) once your box of goodies is shipped you have the opportunity to see what they are sending to you before it arrives. Some people in the world have this funny disorder called “self control” but I’m definitely one of those weirdos. Anyways, when I peeked at my shipment, I had mixed emotions on everything, including the color of these pants. But… When they showed up and I put them on, I swear that it was love at first zip and button. I mentioned above that some of the XS Stitch Fix tops seem to run a little big, but every single pair of jeans they have sent me have fit my body perfectly. I got my “fix” last week and I have already wore these jeans 3 times. I LOVE them. They are cropped too, which is hard for me to find because I am so short. But I can’t say enough about these suckers. And apparently this color of green is going to be one of the “it” colors of this fall. THANK YOU Emily!!!! – 200 percent keeper

3. Papermoon Westham Ribbon Strap Knit Tank: XS : $38

IMG_4178

Top: Papermoon Ribbon Strap Knit Tank / Pants: Kut from the Kloth Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jean (from a previous fix )

So this tank for me was so/so. I like this color of it, but I wasn’t super excited about it. I figured if I was planning on keeping everything else in the fix it would be cheaper for me to keep it and get the 25% discount on everything, then to send it back. On Facebook there are a bunch of Stitch Fix Buy/Sell/Trade groups, so I was actually able to pass this shirt along to someone else who will love it more than I did. There are thousands and thousands of women in the United States who are a part of these groups on Facebook and a lot of women will usually keep all 5 items for the discount, and sell the items they don’t like and pass along the discount to other women. I have purchased some really great items through these boards, and also sold items that I realized I wasn’t super in love with after keeping. It’s a total Win-Win for everyone. – Kept and Sold

4. Skies are Blue Magda Lace V Back Blouse: Size XS: $54.00

A big thanks to my wonderful husband for letting me know that the tags were hanging out!

IMG_4324

Jewelry: Rocks Box

I love the color of this blouse, and it definitely fits with my neon theme that I was going for. But like the first blouse, I wish it was just a tad bit smaller. I know that I will wear it, as it is a great work blouse, and the details on the back of this blouse are just gorgeous. But I am still on the fence because of the fit. I’m thinking of putting it up for sale to see if there are any bites, and if not then I will have no problem keeping and wearing this shirt. The color is amazing, and it can make’s my skin look like I just took a trip to Hawaii.

5. Greylin Elfie Crochet Detail Blouse: Size XS: $108

IMG_4313

Top:Greylin Elfie Crochet Detail Blouse

IMG_4312

Pants: Topshop Cigarette (from Trunk Club)

This halter top is adorable. I love this color, the fabric is nice and thick and is double layered. It’s probably one of the highest quality items I have received from Stitch Fix. I know the price tag is pretty high, but with the 25% discount, and selling the other top, I was able to splurge a little bit on it. This top is super versatile, you can wear it to work underneath a sweater, for a night out with the girls, or with a pair of shorts running around town. It’s flowy in all the right ways, and totally sexy with out really revealing anything besides your shoulders. – Total keeper

IMG_4311

Jewelry: Rocks Box

Okay kids, that sums up my fifth box from Stitch Fix. Since I first signed up for Stitch Fix a few months ago, I have never dressed better in my life. It has totally transformed my closet, and opened up the doors for Trunk Club, and Rocks Box like a gateway drug. But I have never been happier. I finally feel like I dress my age, with work appropriate clothing and am actually so excited to get up in the morning and pick out my outfit for the day. When I look good, I feel good, I’m happier and my day is usually better. Don’t you guys feel this way too?

A little gift that I have for you guys since I have signed up for Rocks Box- Its a service were you spend 19.99 a month and they send you 3 pieces of jewelry to rent, and if you love a piece, or all three you have the option to purchase at a discounted rate.

Trunk Club Review No. 2

Hello my lovely ladies. It’s been a while since I have done a post, summer is a crazy time for work and life in general so I haven’t had a chance to sit down at my little laptop and spew my thoughts for all of you guys to read, but I had to make time to post about my second Trunk Club that I received last week. This time around it is really hard for me to decide on some items, and I need your help! So please let me know what you think I should keep because I sure as hell just can’t make a decision right now and the clock is ticking folks! I need to get this sucker back in the mail like yesterday so I don’t get charged for everything…

If you are sitting here thinking what the heck is Trunk Club? I will give you a brief rundown of how it works. Trunk Club is a company that is owned by Nordstrom. You sign up via the website, or app and get set up with your own personal stylist that you will talk to directly and will have you answer a ton of questions about size, lifestyle, budget, etc. to get an idea of what you are looking for. Your Trunk of goodness will arrive and you have 10 days to try everything on in the comfort of your own home, after that, you keep what you want, and send back what you don’t- easy as pie (whatever easy as pie is supposed to mean).

Okay so when my wonderful stylist Sharitty sent me the preview of my Trunk this time, I decided to not take anything out, even though there were some items in there that I was sure I wasn’t going to like, but I wanted to give everything a shot.. So let’s dive into the good, the bad and the ugly.

IMG_4093

Top: Splendid Swing Tank / Shoes: Converse Shoreline (from first Trunk)


IMG_4094

Jeans:Just Black Adorra Skinny jeans-From Stitch Fix


IMG_4095

Jewelry: Rocks Box

1: Splendid Swing Tank: Size XS $58.00 This tank top is amazing. It’s also super expensive, but I am going to have to splurge on it because I have to have it. The pictures don’t really do it justice but it has the perfect fit and flowyness going on with it. This piece is the one I am for sure keeping, and I have already wore it. Warning- don’t eat spaghetti while wearing it, No one gave me the memo about no spaghetti and now my shirt has two little sauce stains from swinging noodles… thank god they are extremely tiny or else I might have cried . – Total keeper!

IMG_4106

Top: Spendid Slub Knit off the Shoulder Top


IMG_4101

Jeans: Paige Denim Verdugo Ankle Skinny Jeans (from First Trunk)  / Jewelry: Rocks Box


IMG_4105

Shoes: Topshop Wise Platform Wedge Sandal

2: Splendid Slub Knit off the shoulder top: Size XS $78.00

So when I saw this top in my preview, I was super excited, I have been wanting an off the shoulder top for so long, and I couldn’t wait to try it on. I just knew it was going to be a keeper. When I tried it on, I felt the same way, BUT… There’s a big BUT going on here, it has been hanging in my closet for a week and I haven’t wore it yet because of a few reasons, number one: I don’t own a decent strapless bra, and number two: because I am long over due for a boob job, me and strapless bra’s aren’t really best friends. I have thought about just wearing a bra with it and letting the straps show but for $78.00 I just can’t keep it. Seriously makes my heart sink a little saying that, but I have to send it back. Maybe in the future after if I ever get a boob job I will run out any buy this shirt immediately. -Pretty sure it’s going back

3: Topshop Wise Platform Wedge Sandal: Size 6.5 $85.00

When I saw these in the preview I wasn’t super thrilled about the cork wedge, I’ve never been a big fan of cork, but when I tried these on they were so incredibly comfortable that I really had to think about it. I knew at home that I had some very similar black wedges that have a strap around the ankle, not a tie, but they are so similar that there’s no point of me keeping these. – Sending back.

IMG_4108

Top: Topshop Billie Chambray Shirt


IMG_4112

Shoes: Steve Madden Sunshine Lace up Flat


IMG_4113

Jeans: Listed above/ Jewelry : Rocks Box

4: Topshop Billie Chambray Shirt: Size 2 $50.00

I was also really excited when I saw this shirt in my preview, it’s not crazy expensive, and I always need a great botton up shirt. If this shirt wasn’t massively huge on me, I would have totally kept it. I literally had to fold the shirt over in the back and tuck it in so I didn’t look totally ridiculous in the pictures. – Sending back because of fit issues.

5: Steve Madden Sunshine Lace up Flat: Size 6.5 $69.95

Yet another Item that I was sure I would be keeping, if you keep reading ahead (spoiler alert) Sharitty also sent me a pair in black. My biggest worry was how to decide between the two, or if I should keep both. When I first tried them on the fit just wasn’t quite right, I felt like they were slightly too big. I have just been dying for the right pair of lace up flats, and I’m feeling like a mixture or goldilocks and cinderella here. The first pair Stitch Fix sent were too expensive, but the fit and style was perfect, and these the fit seems a little off. The super pointy toe makes my small feet like huge. To be honest though when I put them back on to take these pictures, the fit wasn’t as bad as I though they were, so before I do send them back I am going to give them one last shot. If I do keep a pair, it will most likely be the nude ones. Why am I having such a hard time deciding this time around. – Probably sending back, but still not 100% decided.

IMG_4120

Shirt: Topshop Scallop Frill Tee


IMG_4118

Pants: Topshop Cigarette Trousers


IMG_4119

Shoes: Steve Madden Sunshine Lace up Flat / Jewelry: Rocks Box

6: Topshop Scallop Frill Tee: Size 2: $25.00

This top is cute, but it’s really boxy and a lot shorter then it looks in the pictures. I’ve got an hourglass figure, so this isn’t super flattering on me. I love the price, and the scallop cut edges are super cute and fun, but it’s just not for me. – Sending Back

7: Topshop Cigarette Trousers: Size 4: $38.00

When I saw these in the preview I had mixed emotions, but since I have been doing a total closet re-do over the last few months, I have only been stocking up my closet with various jeans, and my wardrobe is seriously lacking some non-jean pants. Now these pants on a “normal size” person I think are supposed to be “ankle” pants. But on me they actually skim the tops of my shoes, which kind of works? Maybe? These pants are high rise, which lately I have been obsessed with. They fit like a glove, the price is amazing, so I am keeping these. I am just wondering if I should go get them hemmed a little bit? What do you guys think? – Already hanging in my closet with the tags off.

8: Steve Madden Sunshine Lace up Flat: Size 6.5: $69.95

These are the same as the nude flats in black. I so wished that these shoes fit me perfect because I would totally keep both pairs. As I am writing this I am making a mental note to run upstairs and try on the nude flats again before I box everything up this morning to drop off at UPS. Usually I am pretty decisive when it comes to clothes but this trunk is totally throwing me through a loop, and I don’t know why? I think I am just wanting these items to work more then they actually are working. Verdict on the shoes? Black ones are going back for sure, nude ones are maybe going back.

IMG_4121

Top: Topshop Tie Detail Crop Camisole


IMG_4122

Pants: Topshop Cigarette Trousers

9: Topshop Tie Detail Crop Camisole: Size 2: $22.00

Again, I’m torn on this top. I’m not one to “run around town” in a crop top, but we do have a boat that we go out on all of the time so I was thinking it might be fun for that? At first I was thinking that this would be a keeper. Simply because it is super cute, and it only $22.00 but realistically, I think if I kept it, it would just stay hanging in my closet and I would never actually wear it. Like the black off the shoulder top, it’s a top that I want to work so bad, but I need to just realize that I am not in my 20’s and this top will never be appropriate for me to wear. Sorry cute little striped top but you have to go find a new home somewhere else. – Returning.

IMG_4123

Top: Kate Spade Stripe Swing Top


IMG_4125

Pants: Just Black Adorra Skinny’s (Stitch Fix)


IMG_4127

Shoes: Steve Madden Sunshine Lace Up Flats / Jewelry: Rocks Box

10: Kate Spade Stripe Swing Top: Size XS: $85.00

This top would be really cute if it didn’t stick straight out on the sides by it’s self. In the first picture where I am holding the edges, the shirt literally is made to hold that wide shape by itself. I don’t know what Kate Spade is trying to accomplish with this shirt, but since I’m not in the market for a shirt that makes me over 2 feet wide, it has to go. If this shirt was flowy, and just hung straight down it would be a total keeper. – Returning

IMG_4130

Top: Current/Elliott “The Ballet” Flounce Hem Cotton Tank


IMG_4131

Shorts: Free people Silver Springs Shorts

IMG_4132

 

11: Current/Elliott “The Ballet” Flounce Hem Cotton Tank: Size 1: $138.00

I can’t believe that this top is a size 1. This shirt does absolutely nothing for me, I’m not in love with anything about this shirt. It’s overpriced, the material is weird, it has frayed hems- which I hate, and it’s not flattering at all. Enough said, this shirt is going back.

IMG_4129

Shorts: Free People Silver Springs Shorts

12: Free People Silver Springs Shorts: Size XS: $88.00

These shorts are not my style at all. They are not flattering, for being a size XS they are really huge. I’m on the wider side in my hips and butt, so shorts are always a hit or a miss for me. The one thing they have going for them is that they are super comfortable, but that’s all. Bye Bye shorts, it’s been real. – Returning

IMG_4137

Dress: CeCe Natalia Beaded off the shoulder dress

IMG_4136IMG_4135

IMG_4134

My daughter was ready for my fashion show to be over at this point… and so was I

13: CeCe Natalia Beaded Off the Shoulder Dress: Size 2: $158.00

I knew when I saw the preview that I would probably be sending this dress back. When I tried it on, I actually liked it a little bit more then I thought I would, but when it comes down to it, this is just too much dress for my body. The color is amazing, I have always loved this color of pink. The off the shoulder/ strapless bra thing is an issue too, but I do really like the look of it. I feel like if this dress was a little bit cheaper, shorter, and just all around had less fabric, I might keep it. But this one has to go as well. – Returning.

So at this point I need to get everything boxed up and sent back. I am really second guessing myself on the black off the shoulder top and the nude flats- I just can’t make a decision. If the black top was just a little bit cheaper I feel like I would keep it no questions asked, but I don’t want to spend $78.00 on a shirt that I might not wear. Another thing to think about is that there’s a Nordstrom about 10 minutes from my house and can return anything back to them as well, so I might need some more time to think about those 2 items. What do you guys think? Please let me know what I should do because I sure as hell can not make a decision right now. I also just got my 5th Stitch Fix box in the mail and It has some really great items in it as well. Trunk Club should totally offer a discount on clothing and it would be so much easier to keep a lot of items, like it is with Stitch Fix… I am so happy that my stylist sent me some items at a lower price point this time, and I feel like were still in the “getting to know each other” faze, But guess what, when my next Trunk comes around it will be fall, and we all know how fun and amazing fall clothes are so

 

No Junk in this Trunk!

Okay, I know what your thinking… is this going to be a whole post dedicated to her butt? Well Sorry to disappoint, but no, it’s not. But for a second I will tell you a little about my butt just incase you clicked on this post for that reason. I do have a little junk in my trunk, I would classify my rear as more of a wide load then a bubble butt. I got my dad’s genes in the baby got back department and sadly, his butt gene’s weren’t the best to pass onto a girl, but I’ve learned to work with what I was given. My sister got the good butt gene’s, and I have always envied her perfect bubble butt. Anyway’s enough about that, Now it’s time to get into what this post is really supposed to be about….

TRUNK CLUB!!! 

If you are unfamiliar with Trunk Club, it’s not a club that’s dedicated to the glorious back side. Its actually somewhat similar to Stitch Fix, but also different in some totally fabulous ways. Trunk Club is owned by Nordstrom. When you sign up by clicking on someone’s link (such as my own) you automatically get assigned their same stylist. So if you do this, make sure the person’s link your clicking on is happy with their stylist. You can also sign up via the website or app. But when you do it this way, someone out there who is a member of Trunk Club will miss out on getting the $50.00 referral credit that they receive if someone uses their link. So please, if you don’t click mine, at least click on someone else’s so that way someone in the world is saving $50.00. Then you can scratch off your good deed of the day/week/month or even year, because I guarantee that you will be making someone’s day/week/month/ or year, if they see that little $50.oo gift sitting in their account.

Okay once you initially sign up and get set up with a stylist, your stylist will reach out to you with in the next few days. You can communicate with them by phone, email, or app. If your like me, and hate talking to anyone on the phone due to a disease called “I can’t talk on the phone, please text or email me ONLY anxiety” then, don’t fret, you will never have to  awkwardly talk on the phone to your stylist. Your stylist will ask you a bunch of detailed questions, regarding style, fit, lifestyle and so much more, to get a sense of what you are looking to fill up your closet with while draining your bank account, or maxing out multiple credit cards- Please note, if you are not a total baller, and don’t have an unlimited budget, make sure you tell your stylist the budget range you are looking to stay in, Please do not forget this! A few days after that you will receive a preview of your Trunk, which is totally awesome, (Stitch fix doesn’t do this, but that’s okay too, it’s fun both ways) Since Trunk Club is generally more expensive than Stitch fix- Due to higher quality items, more items in your trunk, and access to premium top notch brands that Nordstrom carries. Once you preview your Trunk, you have the option to remove any items that you don’t want them to send to you, and generally your stylist will add more items to your trunk before mailing it to you. From my research, most Trunks have an average of 15 items in them. This can range from ALL types of clothing, shoes, accessories of all sorts including, but not limited to: bags, sunglasses, jewelry, scarves, hats and really, the sky’s the limit. My trunk started with a total of 10 items, I had her remove 3 of those 10 items, which now I wish I would have screen shot them because I can’t remember what I had her take out and why.. I was hoping that she would add more tops, a blazer, and a casual dress or romper, but she ended up only sending me the 7 remaining items, so were calling this a 2 part trunk with this being part one. She’s currently preparing part 2 of my trunk, but she wanted me to receive this one first to make sure that all the sizing and style of clothing was what I was looking for.

Okay, now lets dive into this Trunk together and see what I got, shall we?!?

FullSizeRender

Isn’t this the most beautiful box you could ever see at your doorstep?

Now, Lets take a look at the inside…..

FullSizeRender-1

Hard to see from the pic, but there’s 2 shoe boxes, and a neatly wrapped up stack of clothes.

So when I was describing what I wanted to achieve from Trunk Club, I told my amazing stylist, Sharitty Diaz, that I wanted to add “grown up” pieces to my closet but that are young fresh and stylish, basic closet staples. I mentioned that I was a sucker for black and white stripes, neutral colors, and needed some nice jeans- especially white skinnies, but that I want to add various jean styles to my closet. I wear jeans pretty much every day of the week, with the occasional dress or skirt when I’m feeling extra fancy. My main point to her was that my style icon was Kristin Cavallari, and if she were to just google “Kristin Cavallari style” I would want anything that she found on the internet of her wearing. I am OBSESSED with K.C.’s style and I feel like she should just let me go shopping in her closet, or maybe we can even borrow each other’s clothes? I have also mentioned this exact same thing over and over to my Stitch Fix stylist, and it’s amazing how much of a difference it has been between my Trunk Club box, and my Stitch Fix boxes.

IMG_3307

Jeans:PAIGE DENIM Verdugo Ankle Skinny Jeans Ultra White($189.)      Top: JOIE Amarey B Linen Knit Top ($128)     Shoes: CONVERSE Chuck Taylor “Shoreline” Sneaker ($49.95)

First 3 Items: I have been asking for white jeans from Stitch Fix ever since I signed up but haven’t received any yet. I am so happy that Sharitty sent these to me because these jeans are Amazing!! I know the price tag is super high, but for the last few years, I’ve just been buying $20.00 Old Navy Jeans, or used jeans. I’m at a point in my life where I am able to/ and want to splurge a little in the clothing department( but don’t get me wrong, I also love a good sale, and my Target and Old Navy items too). When I review this box and send back the items I am not keeping, I’m going to ask her to keep my price point a little lower in the future, unless she finds something absolutely amazing. I’ve never owned Paige jeans before, and I am in love! These white jeans are not see through at all, fit me like a glove, and hide all of my cellulite and dreaded saddle bags- These suckers are working their ass off every time I wear them. Totally keeping these!

Next Item up is the tank top. I love this top, I love it’s versatility, and its simplicity, but I just can’t justify spending &128.00 on a simple tank top, and It kills me to send it back, but I just have to. The converse are something that I have been lusting over for a while, at first she had the regular old white converse in my preview. Which was like she was reading my mind, because I was going to specifically ask her to send me some, but forgot when we had our conversation. When I did my preview and saw these, I emailed her and asked her to switch them out for the “shoreline” converse, which are slip on’s and she  made the switch with in 5 minutes. ( Another thing that makes Trunk Club so AWESOME!) The Converse are just as wonderful as I hoped they would be, so those are for sure keepers too!

Jeans: FRAME Le Color Rip Skinny Jeans Blanc ($199)

IMG_3314

Same top and shoes listed above

IMG_3300

Can we just take a second to appreciate how adorable my daughter CLARA is?

Fourth item: These Frame jeans are like silky butter on my legs. When I put them on I knew that I would have to keep these because I did not want to take these babies off, like ever. The front of each leg has rips up and down them, but the quality of the material, it’s hard to describe but you can tell that the rips aren’t going to get any bigger over time. Unless I wear them while drinking too much wine and get a little cray cray, I guess anything is possible. These jeans are incredibly flattering, the rips make them fun and unique. When deciding what to keep or send back, I tried to find each of these items cheaper online ( I couldn’t find any of the items for a better price anywhere else.) When I got to these jeans, google showed me that pretty much every celebrity whose style I lust after, owns these exact jeans, which pretty much makes me a celebrity too in my book, so I took off the tags, and hung up my new best friends in my closet.

IMG_3321

Jeans:7 FOR ALL MANKIND Taylorless Bootcut Jeans New York Dark ($198)

IMG_3320

Top: ABERCROMBIE AND FITCH (already owned)

IMG_3317

Fifth Item: I LOVE these jeans, they are exactly what I was hoping to get, since I want to venture out of wearing skinny jeans every single day. I grew up in the 90’s so I love me a great bootcut or flare jean. The only problem with these are that they are about 5 inches too long. I am wearing 5 inch heels in the picture. I know that I could get them hemmed, but because I was already keeping the other 2 pairs of jeans, hemming a good 4-5 inches off might compromise the look of the bootcut-ness?  Regretfully I have to send these beautiful jeans back, But I may ask my stylist if they come in a 30″ inseam.

Shoes: STEVE MADDEN Sammson Lace Up Gladiatior Sandal ($89.95)

IMG_3326

Dress: FREE PEOPLE Emily Crochet Dress (128)

IMG_3327

The back is see through crochet!

Sixth and Seventh Items: To be honest when I previewed my trunk, These two Items were the ones that arose the most excitement inside of me. I have been wanting gladiator sandals for so long, and these were everything I thought I ever wanted. When I tried them on they didn’t quite look right, the top part where they tie is supposed to wrap around your calves a few times before being tied in the front. The tie part on me was super close to my knee and just didn’t look like they were supposed to. Also when I really thought about it,  I couldn’t really imagine myself wearing these with shorts, so I realistically don’t think I would get as much use out of them as I would like to. The dress was the exact same realization, I loved the look and the “thought of wearing” this dress so much, but I could never wear it to work, and when I looked at the pictures of the dress on, it didn’t look flattering on my body. I wanted to love it, but sadly, it didn’t meet my high expectations.

My first impression of Trunk Club is like my first impression of meeting my husband, scared to death at first but a few days in I knew that we were meant to be! My stylist absolutely nailed the style that I was going for, and I can’t wait to see what she sends me in part 2. I think that Trunk Club and Stitch Fix are similar but totally different in ways that make them both so much fun and rewarding. I would recommend Trunk Club to anyone and everyone looking to add some amazing style to their daily wardrobe. I even talked to my stylist, because I am in a wedding in September and all the bridesmaids get to pick out their own dresses- so my stylist is going to send me a bridesmaid dress trunk soon as well. Seriously, How cool is THAT! On a side note, my husband just signed up for Trunk Club as well after seeing how happy I was with my stylist, so I am very interested in seeing what he receives because, OMG he is incredibly picky for wearing wakeboard brand tee shirts and jeans everyday!

I would Love Love Love for you guys to leave me a comment to let me know what your thoughts are. As always, these opinions are mine alone, I am not paid by Trunk Club, and if you are looking to do your good deed of the day/week/month/year you can click on my link right here—>
