I knew that I was going to be having a procedure done this week that could possibly make me not feel the best. So, I decided to actually do a post ahead of time. This is pretty much a first for me, I can’t seem to ever do posts ahead of time. But, I have recently shown you two items from a recent Trunk Club shipment I received and so I thought I would tell you about my experience and show you what came in my order. This sweater didn’t make the cut for me. Turtlenecks are not a look that I particularly like for me. I have too much going on under my chin to have it framed with extra material. That is the reason that I will look for v-neck tops when at all possible. This sweater was nice and heavy and it was the perfect length to wear with leggings or skinny jeans. This did fit true to size and I liked the way it hugged my body without being too tight. It is a cotton blend and is supposed to be hand washed and laid flat to dry. It comes in two more colors and the material has a marbled effect. This does come in petite and plus sizes also. I would have kept this top in a heartbeat but it was too big for me. It says that it runs true to size but this is a large and I could have worn a medium. This is by Halogen which is the brand of the other two tops that I did keep. This top has a v-neck, which I love, and it is 100% polyester. The care is machine wash and lay flat to dry. These sleeves are what makes the top. They are a big statement!!! I love the velvet tie on the sleeve. This top also comes in two more patterns.I am not sure that you can see because I am in my bedroom but the background color is ivory. I loved this top too but once again it was too big. It also says that it fits true to size. Apparently, Halogen’s sizes and my normal sizes are not the same. Lol! I normally order a size large when I order online but if I ever order from this brand I will size down. The easy-going style is what one of the things I like about this top. I love the way it cinches on the side and I love the color and print also. This top comes in several different colors and patterns. This is a top that you would wear anywhere. You have to put on a top every day so why not make it one that is stylish? This is machine washable and line dry. It is 100% polyester and you can see that even though it had been bundled up that it looks great. That is for those of you like me who hate ironing. Lol! This swiss dot top is on the frilly side. This top will appeal to those who like romantic clothing. It has ruffles and flowy appeal to it. I think it is once again to big for me but I probably wouldn’t have kept it because of the neckline. I love the sleeves and the pattern but the neckline was a big NO for me. I am afraid that this top might not work for large chested women either. I really, really wanted to make this top work for me because I love the overall effect. I would just like it better for someone else. The top is 100% polyester and machine washable and line dry. I know several of you have loved the army green military style vests that I have worn before. This vest is a heavier version than the one that I have. This ran true to size and fit me fine. I did see that if you were between sizes that you should size down. The military look is really trendy right now and very much in style. You can see the pockets and hardware better in this picture.The vest is 100% cotton and it is machine washable and also able to be put in the dryer on low. This does also come in petite for those who worry about it being too long. This sweater had the trendy bell sleeves also. I was made by a different brand called Leith. I liked the color and I “wanted” to like the top but I was just blah about it. I am not sure why it fit alright. It just didn’t do anything for me. This is a color that normally looks good with my eyes and coloration but I just couldn’t make myself say yes to it. I might have liked it better if I had tried it on with a different pair of pants. That does make a difference but I was getting tired by the time I got to this sweater so I just said, “nope” and kept going. It was a soft sweater and felt good on. It is a hand wash only and lay flat to dry sweater. Too big. That seemed to be the theme with this trunk this month. Even if this colorblocked cardigan had fit perfectly I probably wouldn’t have kept it. This was very cozy and warm but I needed some color. My sister would probably be saying, “give it to me” because she loves her black items. This is 100% acrylic and is a hand wash and dry flat cardigan. I could only find this in PLUS sizes, maybe that is why it was too big for me. The mule shoe is really starting to get popular this season. I have not been a huge fan just yet, it might take me a while to embrace this look. I love the ease of the mule but I usually feel like I am going to lose my shoe at any given time. I did like the style of this shoe and it fit perfectly. If they had sent me the suede mustard or red version of this shoe they probably would still be at my house. Lol!!! Those colors look gorgeous in this shoe. I already have too many black leather shoes to be tempted by this one. Hahaha Now, this did tempt me. I wanted to say yes to this soooo bad. I LOVED this coat, everything about it. It fit me PERFECTLY, I loved the white trim on the placket and it was just the perfect weight. It was heavy enough to wear in the coldest weather or at least the coldest that it gets here in Virginia. Why didn’t I keep the coat, you ask??? Because I never “wear” a coat. I debated over and over with myself about this. I wanted this the most of anything in the trunk but I knew that I would not get enough wear from it to justify the cost. Evidently, everyone else loved the coat too because it is SOLD OUT. I knew I should have kept that coat!So far I am well pleased with Trunk Club. When you sign up you share information about what you like and your style. You input your size and then you tell them how much you would like to spend. You can pick from a wide range. Then you decide how often you would like a shipment. Mine is set to monthly right now but I can edit that to every other month or even to that I will let them know when I want something. I will take a while for your stylist to understand your style so each month the shipment should start looking more and more like your style. When I send something back I will comment why I am sending it back. It is super easy to send it back. You log in and click on your trunk. All the items will show up and then you say keep or send back. At the end, you tell it to schedule your pick-up and UPS will come to your house and pick it up. They include the return label and also the two piece of tape that you need to put on the box. Returns are free. It is $20.00 for the stylist fee and that amount comes off of the first item you purchase. If you would like to try this service then, go here to sign-up.
