Trendsend by Evereve Subscription Box Review- October 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 Trendsend 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 other boxes will 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

Each box includes a letter from your stylist about the items she picked for you and why.
Additionally, every box also contains a packing slip that has each item listed and their prices.
The clothing is packaged in different sets or outfits – here’s the first outfit my stylist created for me.
Allison Joy Soledad V Tank – Cost to keep: $39
I actually really like this tank! The print is different than anything else I own. I like the higher neckline and that it has a keyhole that isn’t too low. This would be a great tank for summer.
Paige Denim Transcend Verdugo Ultra Skinny – Cost to keep: $199
I can’t find this black distressed version on their website so I linked to the only variation of the Transcend Verdugo Ultra Skinny I could find. These just don’t feel like $200 jeans to me. They do feel high quality but they just didn’t wow me. The rise was also too low for me and I don’t personally care to wear distressed jeans.
Blank Private Practice Drape Front Jacket – Cost to keep: $98
This is a fantastic jacket! The back and tops of the sleeves are a faux-leather and the front and underside of the sleeves are a comfortable and soft knit. This means it fits really well and feels versatile, too. This is how the jacket looks unzipped and worn as a drape front.
However, you can also zip it up with the asymmetrical zipper that is far to the left side of the front. I love the way it looks zipped!
And here’s the second outfit my stylist put together for me.
Skies Are Blue Sherpa Lined Plaid Vest – Cost to keep: $78
I have always loved the idea of vests more than actually wearing vests. This one is cute but it felt a size small and I just didn’t feel it was very flattering. I love the print and the fact that it’s Sherpa-lined though.
Peyton Jensen Rodeo LS Tunic Tee – Cost to keep: $58
Last month my stylist included this shirt in black, but I felt that almost $60 was a bit high for me to pay for a basic black top (although, I have to admit, it’s a fabulous basic top that I really do love). The fit is fantastic and the neckline and tunic length (which is mostly in the back on me) hits me just right.
Kut from the Kloth Deconstructed Catherine Boyfriend – Cost to keep: $89
I have nothing against wearing white after Labor Day. I think white jeans can be styled really well for Fall and Winter. It’s just that maybe the white paired with this bright red is just quite out of my comfort zone? I’m not sure. I really just don’t love this whole outfit together, but that’s mostly just my taste. However, these jeans do fit well and I’ve tried on many pairs of the Catherin Boyfriend from Trendsend and I even bought a regular jean wash of it last summer.
In last month’s feedback about the black version of his top, I made a comment that I’d be more inclined to buy it if it were in a different color option like the red. Well, she sent it because I made that note! I sort of feel bad, though – I actually meant the really pretty plum color and just didn’t closely look over the shade options before, because this actual red fabric is bright. It’s called “tomato” and that’s pretty accurate – I would definitely go for the plum or a more burgundy shade. That all being said, there’s no price benefit to buying from the box vs online so I at least know I love this shirt and can stalk the website for holiday sales or promotions and snag the plum color then.
Here’s a better look at the back, where most of the tunic length is. It’s more of a sort of high-low, which I love for this season because I feel more comfortable wearing that with leggings.
Verdict: This Trendsend by Evereve was a bit of a mixed bag – I loved some of the items but just as many didn’t hit the spot for me. I’m happy to be able to try on the Rodeo Long Sleeve Tee again because I’ve been thinking about the black one I sent back last month and if the fit was really as flattering and comfy as I remembered (spoiler: it was). Neither of the jeans worked for me but I loved the jacket!
I also want to note: often, a couple of my Trendsend pieces are on sale on Evereve’s website – which I think is particularly the case because I have “send me sale and clearance items” selected in my style profile. When I’ve emailed them about this difference, they’ve said they’ll give me the website price (this does not apply if you walk into a local store and see an item on sale for that location – they don’t price match store sales). If you subscribe, I would just suggest double-checking the website’s pricing before sending your items back to make sure that, if something is on sale, you can email or call and confirm you get the sale price. I’ve had no issues with this in the past.
