Trunk Club Review

Hi friends! I’m so excited to finally be getting back into the blogging world after a *cough* three month *cough* break. It’s been awhile, am I right? I have a bunch of new content I’m working on that I know you’ll love, but in the meantime – can we bask in the new Hello, Her for a quick sec? I’m totalllyyyy obsessed (still some formatting to work through but hang in there with me). ANYWAYS… getting to today’s post.

I am a long-time fan of Nordstrom – the quality, the amazing customer service, and the variety of clothing, shoes, accessories, home goods, and even makeup is phenomenal. So, when I heard about Trunk Club, I obviously had to check it out. After going back and forth about whether or not I would utilize it, I realized my closed needed a major refresh and I didn’t have the time, nor did I want to spend the time, to freshen up my wardrobe. I figured now was the perfect time to give Trunk Club a try and guys, I couldn’t be happier.

What is Trunk Club?

Trunk Club is a Nordstrom company that allows you to say good bye to the frustration of having to go in store to shop. You’re paired up with a stylist that listens to all of your concerns, answers questions, and most importantly – pulls clothing that they know you’ll love!

How Does it Work?

First things first, you’ll want to head to the Trunk Club website and create and account. During this process you will also be setting up a style profile. You’ll be asked several questions about the brands you frequently shop, what your style is, how you prefer your clothes to fit you, and your budget. Once your style profile is complete, you’ll be paired up with a stylist.

Your Stylist

Now, this isn’t just a robot you’re talking to. You talk to a real person, in real time. If you’re busy at work or with your children, there’s a messanger app within the website that allows you to chat with your stylist. If you prefer to talk on the phone, that works too! Once you finish speaking with your stylist, they will send you a virutal trunk to review.

Your Trunk

Once you receive your virutal trunk, you’re able to check off whether you want the item or not. If you don’t want it, you can leave a comment as to what you don’t like about it and your stylist will replace it with someone that might be a better match! Once your trunk is confirmed, the real goodies ship out and then it’s just a waiting game (usually 4-6 days) until you get to play dress up.

There is free shipping and returns on the trunk, although there is a $25 styling fee (waived for Nordstrom Card holders) but it will be credited towards your purchase! You’ll have 5 days to try on what you want to keep and what you want to return. The items you decide to keep will be charged to the card on file once the trunk is received. Returning your trunk is easy, too! All you have to do to return the trunk is request a pick up through your Trunk Club profile! SO easy.

How Much Does it Cost?

The cost of each box varies but most items range between $30 and $400. When you’re filling out your style profile, it will ask you a few questions about the cost of the items you typically purchase, so be truthful! All you’ll pay up front is the $25 styling fee and the rest is up to you. You only pay for what you keep!

Don’t like any of the items? Don’t worry! You can return the whole box, which is what I did with the first box I received.

Other Things to Keep in Mind

I’ve gotten two trunks so far (which included this sweater and these booties!) and I can’t wait to get my next one. If you’re considering giving Trunk Club a try, keep the following in mind:

  • You don’t have to keep everything in each trunk
  • You receive 6-10 items in each trunk ranging from clothing to accessories, handbags, and shoes
  • You can schedule the frequency of your trunk
  • Any items you receive in your trunk can be altered at any Nordstrom location

The best part of Trunk Club is that it is so easy, especially when you’re on a tight schedule but still want to treat yourself. Your stylist takes the guess work out of fit and style of certain items and heck, my stylist was the best! She was so nice, answered all of my questions, and really dug into my daily activities to make sure she packed the best items possible.

Have you tried Trunk Club yet?

    I’m loving your outfit!! That sweater is so cute and I love your booties. I’ve heard of Trunk Club but haven’t given it a try yet. It’s such a smart idea if you’re super busy and can’t get into the store to try stuff on or if you’d just prefer to get suggestions on what to shop rather than browse yourself!

    xo, Laura

      Thanks, Laura! I am a huge fan of Trunk Club, especially because it’s easier than ordering a bunch of things and then having to turn around and deal with returning the stuff you don’t want!

    Loving this look! This is so cool that Nordstrom offers this! I’ve tried a box styling service before and it’s always neat to see what the stylist puts in the box– I’ve tried pieces I wouldn’t normally pick for myself.
