Trendsend by Evereve | Box #2

I think it’s safe to say that I’m officially hooked on clothing subscription boxes. There is just something so unique and fun about finding a box on your doorstep full of clothes and accessories that a stylist picked out for you. Maybe that’s just me, but I’ve sure been getting a thrill out of it.

If you recall, my first go-around with Trendsend by Evereve was less than stellar. However, when Caroline from Windy City Chic let me know that she works at an Evereve store and could style my next box, I thought it was worth giving another shot. Unlike Stitchfix, there is no styling fee associated with receiving a Trendsend box, therefore you aren’t out any money if you decide to not keep anything.

Caroline was so nice to send me way more than what is typically included in a Trendsend box, but in an effort to keep this post from turning into a novel and photo dump, I included my five favorite things from the box.

Warning: Get ready for unedited iPhone photos that involve a massive top knot and no makeup …

7 For All Mankind Slim Illusion Luxe Mid Rise Skinny Jean – $178.00
Verdict: Returned It
I now understand why everybody raves about this brand of jean – they are seriously so soft and have the perfect amount of stretch to them. They fit me like a glove, especially around the thigh and hip area. If the price was a tad lower, I might have considered keeping them.

Free People Cascade Slip – $68.00
Verdict: Returned It
I mostly loved this top for the color combination – I thought it was a perfect mix of feminine and flirty, while still being appropriate for fall under a chunky knit cardigan. Even as a size Small, it still fit rather big, and I was never quite sure if it was intended to wear as a tunic or dress. Either way, I would’ve ultimately styled it with leggings or tights.

La Made Sage Soft Turtle Poncho – $88.00
Verdict: Returned It
I was this close to keeping this sweater, but ultimately, I just don’t think I’m a poncho-type gal. Plus, if I buy one more ivory/cream-colored sweater, Ryan might divorce me.

Peyton Jensen Leigh Plaid Shirt – $68.00
Verdict: Returned It
This plaid shirt was so soft and cozy – it would be a great layering piece for fall, which is what Caroline intended when she included it in the box. I also loved the colors – it sometimes can be difficult to find a plaid where the main color is navy. Again, I just couldn’t justify the price point for a relatively simple plaid shirt.

RD Style Faux Fur Vest Coat – $118.00
Verdict: Returned It
This was another piece that I was pretty close to keeping because it was one of those special, unique pieces. I really had never seen anything like it, and I am a sucker for black/navy combinations. Unfortunately, it was a tad too big, and I’m really not sure where or when I would ever wear it. It was sure pretty to look at though.

Like I said before, there was a lot more in my box than what I included in this post, but these were my favorite pieces regardless of the fact that I didn’t keep anything. And, thanks to Caroline, this box definitely erased my previous experience since there actually were things in this box that I would wear! I do ultimately think that StitchFix might just be more my style and geared toward my preferred shopping price points – I have my next fix scheduled for October!

If you’re interested in trying Trendsend, be sure to reach out to Caroline for tips and advice! You even can select her Chicago store as your preferred store, and you may get lucky enough to have her as your stylist.

  1. oooh i like the fact that they don’t charge you a styling fee… honestly though, like you said, the price points are far too high for me. stitch fix is still a little more expensive than i’d like, but i spread them out so it’s not that bad.

  4. I don’t know why I love seeing unboxing posts like this so much! I loooove that slip dress/top & I think you could totally rock the poncho- it looks so warm and cozy. The price points are definitely on the high side though!

    Ahhh you should have kept that long vest! I have it and took it in and now it fits so perfectly and looks great! It really is unique but as far as the others more your style for sure but totally not worth it. My take on those jeans when jeans fit really well sometimes you have to get them-no matter the price tag πŸ˜‰

  7. I still need to try some 7 jeans, but I agree if the price was just a little lower I’d be all over them! Loving the poncho and the flannel top πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, lady! You definitely should give it a shot – I think you can even receive sale items in the box.

    The poncho is so pretty – I’m not a poncho gal (yet) but I’m hoping to find the right one that just happens to fit right – the hunt is hard! The floral top is darling only if it was a little bit more reasonable! So nice of Caroline to send you extra to pick from!

    • It was so nice of her to send me a ton of options! And, I’m with you about the poncho – I just need to find the right one to get me into the trend.

    These all look great on you, I know if they were a little more reasonably priced you might have kept them all!

    I have the same addiction to ivory/cream sweaters. I just can’t help it! Those jeans look so flattering on you!

    • Thanks, lady! I’m glad I’m not the only one that love neutral sweaters – they just go with everything and anything!

    I love that poncho on you (but laughed about Ryan might divorce you if you bought another cream sweat comment lol). I’m with you on a lot of these–sometimes you like/love something but the price just isn’t great. Those jeans look fabulous, but I can’t picture myself spending that much on jeans.
    Love the review–and that Caroline put together a fix for you!! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, friend! I knew you’d appreciate the divorce comment, lol. Caroline is such a fantastic stylist, it’s not her fault that some of the pieces are just pricey!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
