I was really excited to get my Trendsend box this month. I’ve been a huge fan of this service ever since they changed their styling fee to $1. Especially since now that I’m a stay-at-home-mom, I really appreciate the fact that they specifically tailor to moms, and I also really like that they send 2-3 outfits instead of just a few pieces. I didn’t get the chance to update my profile and include a note about what I was looking for, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. In this box I got 8 pieces that are ready for fall! I had some difficult decisions to make this month.

How Trendsend Works

  • Sign up and fill out a detailed style profile. Trendsend has one of the longer profiles I’ve filled out, but at least they get a lot of details about what you like and your lifestyle.
  • Request a box or set up an automatic delivery for every 1, 2, or 3 months. I have mine set at 1 month.
  • Trendsend will charge you a $1 processing fee that will be credited toward any of your purchases.
  • Trendsend styles your box from the inventory of the store Evereve, and ships it to you FOR FREE!
  • Try everything on, take pictures, take notes, model for your significant other, whatever helps you process the clothing.
  • Keep what you like, and send everything else back within 5 days in the prepaid shipping envelope provided!
  • Check out and leave feedback online.

This month my stylist was Kate. I do wish Trendsend would keep the stylists a little more consistent. I think I’ve had a different one every time. Here is the note she sent:

Happy Trendsend Day! I’m so excited to style this box for you! I read through your Style Profile and I made it my personal mission to create looks with your personal style, budget, wants and needs in mind. Have fun trying on your new items & hope you love your box!

Outfit #1

Kate’s Note: This is a great fall layering outfit! Pair all the items together, or wear them separately with items from your own closet. The Utility jacket can be worn as a true jacket throughout the fall season and then transform into a shirt once the temps really drop in winter. For the crop and tank, be sure to pull these out after winter as they can both be worn well into the spring and summer.

I’m really not into the cropped flares. I’m not sure how to style them, and also it’s going to get really cold here in Minnesota, and I’m sure I won’t want to have my ankles exposed. The jacket is really soft. I love how the olive color of the jacket is a neutral, and yet keeps outfits from looking monochromatic. I’m not sure I would wear the jacket buttoned up, but maybe with a scarf it would be an outfit I could get into. (See what I did there?) I also really like the tank. The detail on the shoulders and down the center of the tank is embroidered, not just printed. I really appreciate the quality, but I have soooo many black and white tanks and t-shirts, and I’m not really looking for tank tops right now.

Outfit #2 

Kate’s Note: I love this combination and wanted to send you a few mix and match pieces. The Mara Legging is super flattering and really comfortable. Pair them with either the Border Slip top or the Peasant top and you will have a truly romantic look that is perfect for the fall.

So you’ll notice that “outfit 2” is actually two outfits. I played with layering the two dresses (especially since the patterned one is called a “slip” but nothing looked right… so they remain two separate outfits. I’m in love with the print of the Free People slip, but the dress is just not functional for me. The model on the website is wearing a bralette with the dress, but to me that is more of a summer look. Fall and winter will be much too cold. I can, of course, just wear a jacket. But just like the last tank, this isn’t something I’m looking for right now.

I really like the burgundy peasant dress. My husband thinks it looks a little “sacrificial” but I don’t care (also I don’t really see what he sees). I love the color, the cut, and it’s a great casual dress for fall. The leggings are nice and thick. I have a few pairs of leggings, but they’re all really thin. I could probably use these leggings, especially once it gets cold, but right now I’m not feeling the urgency to spend money on these. It’s still pretty warm in Minneapolis, and these aren’t unique enough where I won’t be able to get some should I change my mind.

Outfit #3

Little Man is wondering what all the fuss is about.

Kate’s Note: Here is a great go-to option for your day to day. The Mia Skinny denim is a 4 season denim that can be worn throughout the year. Pair it with your new Amelie top and you are set!

I really like the print of this top. I think if I were still working I would consider it, but I’m really looking for softer, stretchier fabrics. This top is polyester and doesn’t stretch. These jeans also fit great, but I’m not looking for another pair of basic jeans right now.

For a fall box I was really hoping for some more… plaid. Evereve has a ton of it on their website. By the way, now that I’m in Minneapolis I’m within driving distance of an Evereve store! So excited. Anyway, I think I’m going to have to update my profile to get a little further away from the boho styles, and a little closer to… whatever plaid falls under.

What do you think of the styles I kept? What would you have chosen? Let me know in the comments!
