Trunk Club Plus Size Subscription Box Review – March 2017
Trunk Club is a clothing styling service for both men and women. Subscribers work closely with their stylist to find a selection of pieces to try on at home, and they receive a trunk shortly thereafter. Trunks can be ordered as often as you like, so you can try it once, or have a trunk sent to you quarterly or monthly. Or even more frequently!
Trunk Club is a Nordstrom company, and they send similar brands that range in the $75-300 range. In the style profile, you can choose your preferred price range for each category (ie. $50-100, $100-200, or $200+)

So first, a little more about how Trunk Club works. When I signed up, I took a pretty lengthy style questionnaire online. Then I was matched with a stylist, Kelly, who asked me even more about what I like and what I was looking for via an online chat. Based on this information, she selected ten items for me to try on at home. She then sent me a link to preview all my items! This month I decided to try everything she selected.
This packet was also included in my trunk.
This is a note from my stylist, Kelly. This month she kept her note brief, but we did chat beforehand about what I wanted to see in my trunk. I love this level of personalized service! This month, the only thing I told Kelly was that I wanted a ridiculous purple dress for Easter. Let’s see how she did!
This is my invoice. It lists the items I was sent and the cost to keep each item. My $25 styling fee will be deducted from anything I decide to keep. There is also a reminder to provide feedback on their website or app about how well each item worked for me.
On the back of the invoice are instructions for returning the items I don’t want to keep. I can drop my box back off at any UPS location, or I can schedule a free pickup through the Trunk Club app!
These items were also in the packet. When I’ve finished repackaging the items I don’t want to keep in the box, I just put this return label on it and use the tape straps to tape it back up! So convenient!
V-Neck Tee by Slink Jeans – Cost to keep $48
I think Slink must be a new brand or something because their pieces have been in alllll my boxes lately. Turns out I am not a fan! I like the idea of a flowy basic lightweight cotton tee for spring, but this one is just completely the wrong shape for me.
Seam Detail Crop Ponte Leggings by Sejour – Cost to keep $89
These leggings are super supportive, but they are really heavyweight. Spring is here! I am not in the market for heavy black leggings at the moment. I am impressed with the quality, though.
Whimsey Floral Top by City Chic – Cost to keep $69
I love this top! (Not necessarily with the leggings, though.) It’s so beautiful and romantic! It’s perfect for spring! I think it’s pretty flattering, too. I think it would look amazing with a champagne colored shantung pencil skirt. Which I will now have to buy.
‘Holiday Romance’ Print Fit & Flare Dress by City Chic – Cost to keep $119
This dress is so beautiful! It’s a heavy satin-feel dress, fully lined. I think it might be a size too big, though. It felt loose, especially through the top.
‘Renley’ Lace Fit & Flare Dress by BB Dakota – Cost to keep $98
EASTER DRESS!!! I love it! I am dressing my whole family up in purple for Easter, and I think this dress is perfectly stunning. I also love BB Dakota pieces in general. This will look awesome with the right jacket.
Chiffon Bolero by Eliza J – Cost to keep $78
Unfortunately, this is not the right jacket for that dress. I don’t know if they were meant to be worn together, or maybe with the other dress? In any case, I like that this is super lightweight, but I am just not feeling black for spring.
Verdict: This was another awesome package from Trunk Club! It was another mix of hits and misses, but I absolutely loved the purple dress and the floral blouse, and I think I might love the floral dress, too, if it fits better in a smaller size. I am becoming a big fan of Trunk Club!
