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!
