There’s a new kid in town, or at least in the world of fashion box services: Trunk Club for Women!
My friend Jessica told me about Trunk Club, a fashion styling service that is sort of like Stitch Fix on steroids. (Ha!) It was originally just a service for men, but they recently teamed up with Nordstrom and now offer styling for women as well.
Trunk Club takes a more personal approach than Stitch Fix. You actually have your own personal stylist at your beck and call. There is no $20 styling fee, no minimum purchase, and you get 15 items to try rather than 5.
I also love that the brands are all from Nordstrom, AND they are all from the current season so you can find them on the website right now. There is no up-charge either. You are charged the price that is on the website. Price per item can be quite high, but if you tell your stylist the price range you want to stay within, she will honor that.
In the interest of full disclosure, I am not in a working relationship with Trunk Club, but all of the links in this post are my referral link. Everyone who signs up gets a referral link to share with their friends, so you can earn credits to shop with, which is another great bonus to trying it out!
Okay, so here are all the nitty gritty details.
Trunk Club for Women
- An assigned personal stylist who is accessible by phone or email at any time.
- No styling fee and no minimum purchase requirement.
- 10 days to try on and return the products you don’t want.
- Free shipping both ways.
- $50 Trunk Club referral credits.
- 15 items per box including shoes, accessories, and handbags.
- The ability to preview the 15 items before they’re sent and remove any you don’t want. (They stylist will replace them so you still get 15 total items.)
- Nordstrom brands, current season, no up-charge.
- No set schedule. You let them know whenever you want your next box.
I wasted no time jumping on the band wagon. While I have plenty of time to shop and could easily take advantage of the personal styling services Nordstrom offers at my local mall, I much prefer trying on clothes in the comfort of my own home. I like that I can try things on with my own shoes and other items in my closet. Plus, it’s just fun to see what someone else will pick out for you.
After I signed up Trunk Club, I filled out a style profile, and then Gretchen reached out and offered to hop on the phone to get to know me and my style and my needs. It is a MUCH more personalized approach than either LeTote or Stitch Fix. Once we chatted, she put together a collection of 15 items based on what we discussed, and then she sent me an email with a link to the website where I could preview them and remove anything I didn’t want.
I removed a few that I knew I wouldn’t like, and then I told her why so she can start learning my personal style aesthetic and my preferences. She added a few more pieces to my box to make 15 and popped it in the mail! read more >>
