Trunk Club Review #2! Dresses/Tops

I received my second Trunk Club shipment last week.  Because this month has just kind of been terrible, I didn't even open it for 3 days.  Then it was like pulling teeth to get Josh to take pictures (in his defense:  he was sick with what in retrospect was probably the flu.  And therefore not into such frivolities.)

I was running out of time before the "return trunk" deadline.  I believe you can still return unworn/tags on merch after that deadline, but I didn't want my card to be charged for the whole haul. Anyway, I took my trunk to work yesterday and convinced my (very nice and actually very into the whole thing!) coworker to take pix.  She also offered suggestions and I polled the office, and then brought the pix to Josh.  SO -- the trunk is already boxed up and ready to go.  Still, I wanted to share the loot.  If you are moved to try it and want to use my referral code, it's here.  In full disclosure, thus far I have accrued nada ($0.00) in referrals!   So um yeah.  I will clearly continue to use this service referrals or not.

I included sizes this time around just in case they are helpeful.  I am (okay fine 0.25" less than) 5'1" and have discovered that hey, most of the time I really am better off in petite sizing.  Probably should not have taken 35 years to figure that one out, but better late than never.

Many hideously unflattering faces - PLEASE ignore!

Seamed A-Line Dress - Tahari $128
size 2P
More of a purple color (that I like a lot!) in person, gold back zip.
Nice thick fabric.  KEPT

Crepe Shirtdress - Charles Henry $88
size XS
Was on the fence, but SENT BACK

Shoes are also from box: Tory Burch Cecile Ankle Strap Sandal $275
SENT BACK.  Liked, but not at that price point

Ottoman Knit Fit & Flare Dress - Halogen $99
Petite XS
LIKED BUT SENT BACK b/c I have a fairly similar Boden dress I like more

PLEASE ignore this hideous face and focus on the dress!!

Stripe Ponte Shift Dress - Eliza J $118
Size 2P
KEPT.  Love this.  Probably my favorite thing in the box.

V-neck Peplum Sleeveless Top - 1.State $79
Nice concept, but hit hips at a terrible place.  RETURNED.

Pleat-front V-neck blouse - Vince Camuto, $69

Print Roll Sleeve Tie-Front Blouse - Halogen $68
KEPT.  I am a little ambivalent about the tie-front, but I feel like it looked cute and came down low enough that I wasn't crossing any inappropriate-for-age boundaries.

Relaxed fit shirttail tee - Trouve $38
Soft and nicer than just a T-shirt.  KEPT.

Jeans are 'The Stilt' Crop Skinny Stretch Jeans 13 Year Solitude Wash - AG $205
Size 26
In theory they are "cropped" but not on me :)
KEPT because they fit perfectly.  I didn't even really need jeans but when a super-comfy pair is just handed to me, it's hard to say no.

Twist Back Sleeveless top - 1.STATE $59
Did not want to deal with figuring out what to wear under this.  SENT BACK.

Pleat Front Blouse - Vince Camuto $89
Another meh.  SENT BACK.

Slub Pocket V-Neck Tee - Madewell $19.50
Too sloppy looking.  SENT BACK.

'Turquoise Shatter' Collar Necklace - Baublebar $44
Okay, but not my favorite.  SENT BACK.
