Trendsend by Evereve Subscription Box Review – May 2016
Trendsend is a personal styling service created by Evereve, a nation-wide retailer specializing in styling moms.
Trendsend brings the styling experience of Evereve’s stores to the comfort of your home based off of your personal preferences and style profile. You can choose to receive Trendsends every month, every other month, or quarterly. You can also choose to receive a Trendsend box at any time, without signing up for a subscription.
FYI – the items in my Trendsend boxes are selected for me based off of my preferences and style profile, so your boxes may look completely different!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Trendsend by Evereve
The Cost: Trendsend recently updated their model so there is a $20 styling fee that goes towards your purchase, but will not get refunded if you choose to send everything back. You also pay for whatever items you keep.
The Products: 2-3 outfits: each box will contain 6-8 items, including tops, bottoms, dresses, and accessories (they offer sizes 0-14).

Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
Every box contains a letter from your stylist that talks about what items they sent you that month.
I always like how the letters always feel so conversational and personal!
Each box also contains a packaging slip listing the items and their prices.
Now for the first set of outfits!
Lovestitch Open Weave Fringe Poncho – Cost to Keep: $78 (on sale for $69.99)
So, I’m not starting this review off strong… This poncho is so not my style. I didn’t know they were back in style. It was definitely warm, though.
Kut from the Kloth Cameron Straight Leg Rolled Crop – Cost to Keep: $89
I love these jeans! Of course, they’re Kut from the Kloth. You’ll see more pics of these with the other tops below. They fit well and feel high quality. One thing to note: the rolled up part is sewn that way – you can’t unroll it and wear them as jeans.
Allison Joy Printed Drape Top – Cost to Keep: $48
Am I the only one who has an issue with how short drape tops always seem to be? I got a top with a similar drape front from Golden Tote and have tried a couple others and they always seem so short in the torso. Other than that I like this top. It’s comfortable, light for summer, and the draping makes it nursing friendly.
Peyton Jensen Dillon Stripe Top – Cost to Keep: $48 (on sale for $39.99)
This top is a little more loose/shapeless than I prefer. Also the knit was really warm – not a great summer piece.
Skies are Blue Mix Print Tank – Cost to Keep: $48 (on sale for $39.99)
Gideon needed to be held, so he’s making a cameo.
This tank was fine, but I don’t think the beige does anything for me. Also, It was snug in the chest.
And now for the second set of outfits.
Braeve Tie Dye Jumpsuit – Cost to Keep: $78 (on sale for $69.99)
Apparently my stylist picked this as a more “daring” piece for me to try, but unfortunately it’s one of the biggest misses in styling service history for me. I don’t care for the print, it’s impractical, uncomfortable, and too short for me to wear. The material felt slinky and cool, so I can see how this would be a good pick for summer, but it’s just not working for me personally.
Gentle Fawn Alesia Dress – Cost to Keep: $68 (on sale for $59.99)
I think this dress is cute! I like the cut a lot. Unfortunately the arm holes are too big/the straps are cut so they fall too close together on my shoulders. I think there are more flattering colors to my skin tone, but this isn’t bad. Plus, it was comfy.
RD Style Pocket T Dress – Cost to Keep: $48
I love the color of this! I think it’s cute and it was pretty comfy, too. I wanted to keep this, but it was just too short a dress for me, personally, and I didn’t want to have to pair it with leggings in summer.
Spellbound Natural Stone Tassel Necklace – Cost to Keep: $48
This necklace is pretty, and I like the stone beads. I just don’t care for gold much, and the style is a little too bohemian for my style or to go with the rest of my wardrobe.
Verdict: Well, this Trendsend wasn’t great for me. I liked the dresses alright, and Kut from the Kloth jeans are always a win for me. Unfortunately the tops are such a hit or miss for me from this subscription lately… I think maybe their summer styles are just quite far from my own style. It seems to me that they lean pretty “boho.” However, I know that this is due to my personal taste. I think I need to go back through my style profile with them and make it a little more concise/clear about what I’m generally looking for, and what things to avoid.
I do have to mention that I feel a little like the picks from my stylist sort of poorly align with my style profile/preferences (again). I frequently remind them that price and budget is basically my #1 deciding factor when it comes to keeping something, and my stylist said she tried to pay attention to the prices of things this time, which I do appreciate.
I also want to note: some of the pieces were on sale on Evereve’s website. In the past, I have emailed customer service asking about this, and saying “I assume the online price is what I would be charge to keep something?” and they confirmed. A couple months ago, some readers said they had some trouble with this, so it seemed it felt a little dependent on who you spoke to. My advice with this kind of situation is go into it assuming and acting confident that of course they’d price adjust, because, really, there’s no good reason for them not to.
