My husband, Kevin, and I are headed for Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in a couple of weeks and we are super excited! I’m so looking forward to HOT weather, relaxing and sunning on the beach, eating delicious food and having fun at the night activities. Of course, I need some new digs to take on the trip! Of course, I emailed my Nordstrom stylist, Michelle, to send me the latest fashions in resort wear. See what I received below! It was extremely hard to stick to my “one item per box” rule!
Note from Michelle: “Hi Kenia! Great to hear from you. That is so exciting that you are going to Punta Cana, I’m sure a well needed vacation. This trunk includes some great finds for this trip. I found you some great casual dresses, interesting and colorful tops and white denim (a staple for the warmer months). Let me know your thoughts. We can adjust according to your taste. Best, Michelle.
Here’s how Trunk Club works:
- You’ll take a brief survey about your style, sizes, and spending preferences to help connect you with the right stylist.
- He or she will contact you to learn more about what you’re looking for, and then send a preview of clothes they think are a good fit.
- They will send you a trunk of clothes and you have five days to decide what to keep or return.
- Log onto the website to give feedback on the items in your trunk
- Return the items you don’t want to keep (free shipping and UPS pick up from your house).
Vince Camuto Floral High/Low Print Blouse – $89.00
AG PRIMA Jeans – $188.00
Michael Kors Holly Espadrille Wedge Sandal – $104.96
This black and white blouse is light and airy, perfect for a night out in warm weather. I really like the high/low style and how it sits over the jeans. The pattern is nice — not too overwhelming or busy. It does remind me of a cow a little bit, though. I definitely put this in the “consider keeping” pile, but in the end, decided to send it back. Status: Considered Keeping
These jeans are very comfortable and look great. I just don’t need them, as I have a couple of other white pair. Status: Returned
I LOVE these wedge sandals! We are talking about 4 inch heels but, with the platform style, it’s very easy to walk (and dance) in them! I need a pair of dress up, dress down COMFORTABLE sandals to take on the trip with me. These are a very good option. Status: Considered Keeping
Leith Foldover Midi Dress- $69.00
I really like the style of this dress and how it fits me. I also like that you can dress it up or down with heels or a pair of flats. The fabric is a bit heavier, though, and you can see how easily it wrinkles! I don’t want to have to do too much ironing on the trip so I decide not to keep this. Status: Returned
Willow & Clay Crochet Detail Dress – $149.00
This dress is very pretty, but it’s not my style. Some may like the crochet detail, but it’s a little too granny for my liking. I do like the bottom of the dress, which has plenty of movement and would be great to dance in. This goes back in the trunk. Status: Returned
Breakaway Cover Up Tunic- $129.00
I’m dreaming of Punta Cana, but I know I’m not taking this cover up. It’s nice! It looks good on me! But, I bought several cover ups for beach trips I took last year and don’t need any more. AND, even when I do need a new one, I won’t be paying this much money for it. Status: Returned
Moon River Floral Print Off the Shoulder Dress – $95.00
love, Love, LOVE! Now, this is totally my style! This dress is so on trend with the cold shoulders and loose fit. I like the pleats and pattern. The price is perfect! I want to keep this dress. I think I will get a lot of wear out of it this summer. Status: Considered Keeping
Cupcakes and Cashmere Potter Dress – $115.00
This item is really cute and perfect for the trip. It won’t do well in the suitcase, though. You can see how wrinkled it got in the trunk. This would require an extensive ironing job, so I don’t consider purchasing this. Status: Returned
Wayf Amelia Cold Shoulder Blouse – $69.00
This top is ok. I don’t like that it has long sleeves and I’m not a fan of the lace detail. The delicate flower pattern is really nice, though. I have better options to consider. Status: Returned
Well, this was a tough decision! It was really close between the black print dress and the wedge sandals. I know that I can rent dresses with my Rent the Runway and Le Tote subscriptions, so I end up going with the sandals! I’ve kept the shoes from my past two subscription boxes… Shoes are off limits next time!
Let me know what you think about this latest trunk!
