I think most of you know what Stitchfix is at this point, right? If not, click here. However, I tried to spice it up this month. I’ve tried another clothing subscription box called Trendsend before, and it was a pretty big strike out. But I just got an email from them saying that they removed their styling fee, I had to try it again. What’s there to lose?
Here’s the deal with Trensend. You fill out your style profile, like Stitchfix, enter in all you rinformation, your likes, your dislikes, etc. They also ask you to submit a photo of yourself so they can truly see your body shape. The major differences between Stitchfix and Trendsend are that Stitchfix charges a $20 styling fee, so even if you send it all back you have to pay that styling fee. Trendsend has nixed any styling fee, they charge you $1 to send out the box, but otherwise if you don’t like anything in the box you can still send it all back without a penalty. Trendsend also doesn’t allow you to schedule when you will receive your items, they will just arrive as soon as the box is set, they say approximately 14 days after placing your order. However, I’m a bit skeptical about that because my last Trendsend box took a lot longer than 14 days. So there’s a bit of ambiguity on that end, especially since you need to check out and send back any items you don’t like after 5 days. Lastly, Trendsend will send you full outfits that you can wear instead of seperate pieces. They will send you three outfits that you can usually mix and match if you have a goood stylist. Trendsend is also under the parent company, Evereve, so you have a brick and mortar store option to go to if you prefer to shop for yourself. But luckily, I’m a bad shopper and like all my clothes just sent to me. So without further ado let’s get into what I received.
Trendsend Clothing Reveal
My impressions about this outfit are as follows: 1) It’s unflattering for my figure, 2) I’d never wear that color green, 3) Totally not my style. I think that pretty much sums it up. I also can’t believe a cold shoulder tee shirt that was as thin as this one is $48. I honestly didn’t mind the skirt but I don’t think it looked that great on me and I haven’t worn a skin tight skirt like that since college frat parties.
Cold Shoulder Tee – $48
Chambray Bomber Jacket – $78
Josette Skirt – $58
I liked this outfit 100% the best. The drape cardy is super cool and pretty. The shirt is absolutely my style, maybe a bit low cut but I have lots of camisoles that I can wear underneath, and the white jeans is something I wouldn’t have paired with such a white outfit but I really liked the look of it. Luckily, I already have white jeans just like these from American Eagle that were only $60 so I will be sending back the white jeans for sure, but I think I’m going to keep the other two pieces.
Fringe Drape Cardy – $88
Lana Croft Shell Shirt – $79
White Jeans – $
I’m totally confused and lost. First of all the outfit didn’t contain bottoms, they added in a lace bra for the third outfit item. It was a cute bra, but for someone with my size chest, a bra without underwire is not going to cut it. If it wasn’t lace, I might have kept it for a sleep bra but it would be too itchy for that. The stylist said to pair the two tops with either the white jeans or the black mini skirt but I tried both and I still don’t get the look I’m going for? Trucker-chic? Lumberjack-lady? Help. Obviously sending it back because I have no idea what to wear with this. If the button down was long sleeved, I would have kept it for winter for layering. It was super soft and the pattern was really pretty, but I don’t have a need for a plaid vest/shirt/thing.
Britt Button Down – $132
Long beach Tank – $20
Gallon Lace Racerback Bra – $38
What do you think of what I received? Would you have kept or sent back anything different? How the eff are you supposed to style the last outfit?
