I love to shop, but sometimes after a long week of commuting and being surrounded by a lot of people, Trunk Club is just what I need for a relaxing shopping experience in the comfort of my own home.
When I do online shopping, I usually know what I am looking for, but sometimes the experience can be overwhelming. While browsing for some spring wardrobe updates, I happened upon Trunk Club for women. They are owned by Nordstrom, which to me is a huge plus, since Nordstrom is one of my all time favorite stores. I love the brands they carry and they hold a special place in my heart because my mom made it “our” store, where we would go splurge a bit together and it’s where I found my first homecoming dress, had my first personal shopper experience and a few years ago, bought my wedding dress.
When you sign up for Trunk Club, you fill out a form all about your height, measurements, style, etc. Shortly after, a stylist contacts you. My stylist, Gameela, was quick to contact me and we arranged a time to chat on the phone so she could get to know all about my style. From the first moment of our phone call, I knew I had made the right decision in signing up for Trunk Club. Gameela really listened to what brands I like, what my favorite styles are, who my style icons are, we even had some good laughs- I felt like I was talking to a friend the entire time!
After our phone conversation, Gameela quickly went to work, pulling items she thought might suit my style needs. She sent me a message showing 13 pieces, which I got to accept or decline. Based on my feedback, she put together a trunk, which took about a week for me to receive. When I opened the box, I was awed by the stacks of clothing tied neatly together with ribbon. I quickly laid out each piece and saw that everything was compatible and could make tons of cute outfits. The other thing I love is that you get shoes! I have a slight obsession, a girl can never have too many pairs of shoes, right??! Thanks for the wise words of wisdom, mom!
Although I would have liked to keep everything, I knew it was not realistic for my budget. However, I loved the assortment of pieces at reasonable price points. I would definitely use Trunk Club again. I feel they really understood my style, saved me a trip to the mall and the best part? UPS will come pick-up the items you want to return! Do you think you’ll try Trunk Club? If so, click here to sign up and let me know what you think! Happy shopping friends!
