Reviewing Trunk Club: Quickfire Review & Help me Decide!

8 Feb

After a really poopy few weeks, I needed a pick-me-up. So, I emailed my Trunk Club stylist and told her that while I didn’t really have any needs at the moment that I wanted a Trunk to make me happy.

Poof. A few days later, my Trunk arrived.

Typically when I do my Trunk Club reveals I show you all 15 items I received and then photograph a few of my favorite outfits from the Trunk. {pssssst, if you want to see all my Trunk Club reveals you can see them here} This time I had a bunch of fit issues and was also in a super bad mood, so I didn’t feel like photographing everything. Instead, I’m going to give you my quickfire reviews and ask for your help on what I should buy to treat myself!

Ready?

Items 1, 2 and 3

High Rise Leggings by Rag & Bone ($198):  Guess I’m not a Rag & Bone girl, because my typical size was too tight and I was like a miserable sausage person with muffin top.

Deep V Half Sleeve Top by Splendid ($46): I have this top in black from my second Trunk and it gets a lot of wear in the summer. This one was white. I don’t like white.

Aly Lightweight Stripe Shirt by Rails ($148): My boobs were busting out of this. In a bad way

Items 4, 5 and 6

‘Faiyly’ Mixed Media Cardigan by Ted Baker London ($195): This is like a blazer and a sweater had a baby. It’s also white and I hate white.

Rosina Laser Cut Wedge Sandal by Halogen ($99.95): Ooooh, these burgundy laser cut wedges are super cute and the 3”heel seems comfortable. They also have really good reviews on the Nordstrom website. These might be a bit tricky to style though… it needs to be warm enough that I can go without socks and have my toes out, but cold enough that a burgundy velvet/suede makes sense. Strongly considering these.

Mid Rise Baggy Crop Jeans by Treasure&Bond ($89):  I thought these would be worse on. But as it is, they’re not great.

Items 7, 8 and 9

Annacis Perforated Oxford by Louise et Cie ($139.95): The picture shows the brown version, but I was sent these in black. Had I seen these in the store, I never would have even picked them up to try. But OHMYGOSH are they cute in person. I can see doing a fun peekaboo sock with skinny jeans/pants in the cooler weather, paired with black tights and skirts, or with a bare foot/ankles in the spring. My only concern is that the reviews on the Nordstrom website are mixed on how comfortable they are to wear.

Cranita Perforated Bootie by Vince Camuto ($149.94): Cute shoes but the heel is too high for me to wear.

Rainbow Rays Shirt by Free People ($108):  So ugly. So, so ugly.

Items 10, 11 and 12

Release Pleat Full Skirt by Eliza J ($168): I love Eliza J skirts and I own two (both from Trunk Club), but the sheen on this one makes it more appropriate for a wedding. I prefer a skirt I can wear to work and this isn’t it.

Scarf Print Crepe de Chin Fit & Flare Maxi Dress by Eliza J ($158): Beautiful dress, but the fit was all wrong for me. Also, made for a giant.

Illusion Yoke Lace Fit & Flare Dress by Eliza J ($198): This dress was not a friend to my boobs. Also, the cream slip and blue lace are way more ‘fancy wedding event’ than work.

Items 13, 14 and 15

Power Stone Adjustable Y-Necklace by gorjana ($58): I love that this necklace can adjust to be worn a couple ways – as a long lariat necklace, a medium length or adjusted into a shorter option (if you click through the link you can see the options). Loving this one and probably wouldn’t have picked it up for myself. This may be the perfect ‘cheer myself up’ gift.

‘Power Stone” Semiprecious Stone Bracelet by gorjana ($38): I wear a leather wrap bracelet almost every single day and this onyx and rose gold bracelet would look really great paired with it. I think I’m sold on this one!

Flash Clubmaster 51mm Sunglasses by Ray-Ban ($170): I picked up a pair of red Alexander McQueen sunglasses at Nordstrom Rack a year or so ago and pretty much wear them non-stop. While these sunglasses are super cute, I like mine better and they were way cheaper too.

Trunk Finalists
Okay, so if you’ve been playing along that leaves me with the following favorites from this Trunk:

1. Annacis Perforated Oxford by Louise et Cie, $139.95
2. Rosina Laser Cut Wedge Sandal by Halogen, $99.95
3. Power Stone Adjustable Y-Necklace by gorjana, $58
4. ‘Power Stone” Semiprecious Stone Bracelet by gorjana, $38

I have until the weekend to return my Trunk. What do you think I should buy?

 2/10/17 Update: I decided to buy the Halogen Laser Cut Wedge sandals and the gorjana bracelet. Thank you all for your feedback!!

    Get the booties and the bracelet! I love them both!

    I love the bracelet! Super cute!

    I’m a bracelet girl so definitely the bracelet! Like the necklace too. I have a hard time finding oxfords so if they fit well and you can style them I think they would make a great classic staple for your wardrobes! And the booties are cute! So go for all!

    I adore the oxfords!! I also love an adjustable necklace and this one is pretty. The sandals are nice, but I agree with you it many be hard to find the best time to wear them. Whatever you decide, enjoy your new things!

    I love the jewelry, definitely get both pieces. The shoes…they are cute, but as I like practical shoes, I would recommend against them, unless you really like them and they cheer you up. 🙂

    I love those booties, very cute. Sorry that the Eliza J maxi didn’t work for you, I have that exact dress and LOVE it (though I have only worn it once, because I am not sure where else to wear it…).

    I love the bracelet and necklace! The maxi is beautiful – I may have to run to Nordstrom this weekend to see if I’m tall enough. 🙂

    I love both pairs of shoes and normally I don’t like shoes similar to the burgundy ones. But these are super cute!

    The wedge sandals are super cute!!! I feel like they are a definite.

    If more than a couple people are commenting about the comfort of the oxfords, I wouldn’t do it. For people to comment something has to be really great or really…not great.

    I like both pieces of jewelry and you’ve made a good case for both. Treat yourself! 😉

    I’d go with the jewelry honestly! $140 for oxfords that might not be comfy for all day wear is a bit much IMO. I have similar booties from a Trunk and I love them. You are right though, there’s a brief window in the spring and in the fall that allows for them. If you don’t have booties you love I’d go for it otherwise pass!
