Trunk Club :: May Trunk Review

In my blogging absence, I've actually gotten quite a few trunks from Trunk Club. I had to break up with a stylist after she got a little repetitive (that girl LOVED a weird ruffle shirt), but my newest stylist Martina is knocking it out of the PARK lately. On Saturday, we leave for wine country, so I asked her to put together a bunch of cute things for wining and dining in Napa Valley. So without further ado, see what I got, enjoy the review, and feel free to sign up using my code here

Stripe Smocked Crop Top w/ Split Leg Walkthrough Pants
Band of Gypsies, $42/$78.

I mean, how cute is this set? I love all of the matching sets right now - great alternative to rompers or jumpsuits that DOESN'T make you get completely naked in the bathroom - and this one has a fun surprise!

SLITS! Yep, two slits right up the front of the pants for maximum flowy-ness. Coachella, here I come. Verdict: KEEP.

Jenna Asymmetrical Wrap Dress
Wayf, $85.

This is pretty in a "Sexy Easter" kind of way but I was not prepared for that kind of boobage. While the romantic side of me *could* picture myself basking in the sun in Sonoma wearing this dress, the practical side said I was one breeze away from oversharing. Verdict: Pass.

'Helena' Denim Jacket
KUT from the Kloth, $79

I have too many denim jackets as it is, so I didn't even open this one. Great idea though, I'm putting denim on my packing list. Verdict: Pass.

Polermo Wrap Maxi Dress
Wayf, $89

Again with these gorgeous prints and flowing fabrics! I honestly thought this was going to be a winner, but just a little too much boobage. Going up a size can fix that problem in most wrap dresses. Not worth it for this one for me, though, as I wasn't a fan of the ruffled neckline. If you love the prints of these Wayf dresses though, check out the rest of the line! They have a ton of different shapes. Verdict: Pass.

Ab-Solution Ankle Skimmer Jeans
Wit & Wisdom, $68

When I first put these on, I honestly had to check and make sure they weren't maternity pants, THAT'S how comfy they are. Here's the secret: A STRETCHY WAISTBAND.

Like hello, thank you. The outside looks like a normal pant, but the inside is full of goodness. As I get older, I have less tolerance for uncomfortable clothes. I have too much to do, too many places to go, and too many options to keep buying things that I will constantly pull at. I'm hoping this elastic will help keep them from stretching out like similar fabric pants tend to do. Also, thanks to the ankle length these are totally normal on me without alterations (5'2").

Final test? How it looked on my booty:

These babies passed with flying colors, people. My stylist said that she was obsessed with an olive pant for spring and summer this year, so who am I to judge? Now I'm looking up the Wit & Wisdon brand to see what other amazing goodness they've got. I've already seen they have these in white and pink too!! eeeeeeeeeek Verdict: KEEP.

Terrain Crop Cargo Pants
Sanctuary, $99

She also sent these olive pants but I can't get behind a cargo outside of 2002. What I do love is that she sent me two sizes of every single pant, so I could size up or down without having to get a replacement. Trunk Club truly is the best. Verdict: Pass.

Twist Front Dress
Trouvé, $69

My friend Maegan LIVED in Trouvé dresses last year when we were in France, so I was excited to try this little number. The fabric is really comfortable and while I don't see myself wearing it on this trip, I would love it for work. The detail on the waist is really pretty:

I am getting a few work sheath-type dresses from Old Navy this week, and an olive t-shirt dress from them as well, so I'm undecided on whether I'll keep this one. I think the quality is going to be a little better overall and I really liked the fabric, so I'm definitely keeping this brand on my watchlist. Verdict: Solid Maybe.

Poplin Shirtdress
Halogen, $99.

shirt-dress.jpg

This was a really interesting concept of a dress! Sort of like someone stitched a bunch of men's dress shirts together to make a funky dress. I like the detail on the side, too: 

shirt-dress-2.jpg

I thought I'd be able to adjust the side ties to give it a little more of a waistline and customize the fit, but that's when things started to fall apart. If I tightened it too much, the dress would start to pull at the buttons and gap. I'd almost prefer they skipped the ruffle on the side and either A) had a drawstring waist, or B) left it alone so I could belt it. Cute concept but...Verdict: No. 

10 HR SKNY Crop Button Front Jeans
Madewell, $128

white-jeans-3.jpg

Okay, I love these jeans. Again, this is a bit of an overlap because I did *just* order some white jeans from Old Navy, but I was really surprised by the quality and fit. I'm planning on telling my stylist to continue sending me jeans from the brand, because they were comfy and nice and thick. I purposely wore red underwear underneath to test the opacity, and surprise! They did really well. I don't love the booty test as much in these as I did those olive pants, but I do love the high waist. Verdict: Reluctantly sent back. 

Whisper Cotton Strip Pocket Tank
Madewell, $22.50

Speaking of Madewell, the lone top she sent this time that you've seen with all the pants is from them. I love how light it is, but like, do I really need another striped tank? Do I? *slowly puts it in the closet* I mean, don't I already have something V E R Y S I M I L A R to this?? It's super cute and comfy though! Verdict: Honestly I don't know at this point, I have so many, I can't stop now

OVERALL VERDICT: Trunk Club continues to be one of my favorite services! I even got Mr. AJ to sign up for it! I would never have bought those olive pants, I would never have found that coral two piece set, and I had no idea that Madewell jeans were so comfy. The ability to take your time at home, with a mirror you trust, and try on multiple sizes (while only paying for what you keep!) is honestly a game-changer.
