Trunk Club Review (Nordstrom’s Subscription Box!)

Trunk Club review, and what's in my trunk club box

Do you use a subscription box to help you shop? I tried Stitch Fix three-ish years ago and while I thought it would be awesome for those who shopped less online, I didn’t find much personal value. I’ve been curious to test out another style subscription box (there’s one for everything these days!), so I went with Trunk Club, owned by Nordstrom since I already love so much on Nordstrom’s site.

Here’s how Trunk Club works:

Complete a questionnaire and then get matched to a personal stylist who follows up with more questions to get to know your style. There’s a message feed within your Trunk Club online profile so you can easily send your stylist any items you’ve wanted curious to try, any aversions (colors, pant style), etc. She then comes back to you online with a curated box of apparel, shoes and accessories. You can also specify if you want a box tailored for a “work refresh,” or “new athletic wear” or “a new weekend look” (I’m making these up for examples).

You review your box online and let your stylist know anything you do or don’t want to try. For example, before it shipped, I requested she swap out two tops that were $125+; I knew I’d never purchase them. She also included two items I’ve wanted to try — an awesome feature if you want to try something you’ve been eyeing on Nordstrom’s site; this way you can test them without paying out of pocket if you traditionally purchased them. Such a great side benefit!

The fee/details

The service is $25/box, which goes toward anything you purchase. Plus it’s free if you’re a Nordstrom card holder; we are, which is also handy for early access to the #nsale quickly approaching (plus you earn Nordstrom notes toward future purchases).

My Trunk Club Review

I absolutely loved receiving the box with all the goodies — I mean, hello, big box of cute clothes! What’s not to love? Some things were admittedly major hits and misses. Best of all, I tried a few items I never, ever would have tried but now I am obsessed. This dress is such a winner.

You have to figure out your needs, but services like Trunk Club can be a super budget-friendly way to push you out of your comfort zone and add depth to your wardrobe with new finds.

As a heads up, this post is not sponsored in any capacity; I’ve been curious to try Trunk Club so thought I’d share my experience with you. I do get Trunk Club credit if you shop through my referral link, so I’d be grateful if you did, but that’s it. Hope you found my Trunk Club review helpful.

      Will definitely do more videos… it’s a fun way to really show clothes, and I’m excited to do more real talk / vent sesh content as well. 🙂 And, you’re so sweet to mention that! I have so much new makeup and it makes my heart happy to think women who could use it more can really enjoy it. <3 All about people helping people!

    You did terrific! More videos please. Try-ons and vent sesh(es) you do those so well and we all need a wake up call once in awhile. I like that you just did the try-on and told about the clothes with what looked like no fussy preparation. Just you and your impression. Love reading your posts.

      You are so kind Sharon and I’m so grateful for this feedback! I also like watching more real video content so it’s great other women feel the same. 🙂 And, love the idea of a video vent sesh. Thank you!!
