In Her Opinion: Trunk Club


I learned about Trunk Club many months back.  Having some help on the fashion front would be a fantastic help to me and when I learned a friend tried it and loved it, I wanted to share it with you! Info is at the bottom to contact her rep and to check out the info online.


Trunk Club
“I wanted to share something with you that I did recently and thought was really cool.

Trunk Club is a clothing service located in Deep Ellum and owned by Nordstrom, for super busy people who don’t have time to shop — or just don’t have the desire or fashion-ability to update their on wardrobes on a consistent basis (that’s me!). I did it last week, and had a great experience, so thought some of you might want to try it too!
My stylist, Helen, is precious, and she did a great job of learning more about me, my likes/dislikes, personal taste and style, etc. and she chose so many great options that I ended up purchasing most of them! The cool thing is that if you don’t like anything, there is zero catch, and you don’t have to buy a thing. If you like some, great, and if you like them all – then even better! She can also go back to the drawing board for alternate sizes, styles, colors, and can help you put outfits together that maybe you hadn’t thought of. If you have a budget or want to stay within a certain range, just tell her and she’ll stick to that. If you have brands you love, tell her what they are, and she can shop within the outline of your personal preferences.
Helen met me at my home and even helped me clean out my closet (at no charge), sifting through every item to assist in making a decision on what I should keep/sell/donate. She can also send a box of clothes to your home, or you can meet her at their Dallas space. She also works with men for both casual and dress clothes. I’m definitely going to use her for James’ wardrobe as well.
I literally have zero time to shop, let alone think about what I’m wearing from one day to the next (or to business meetings, events, etc.) so this is a SUPER helpful and easy option for me. Hope you like it too!

His Two Cents: Gifts for Him

HELP!  I need to get something for my husband for his birthday but I’m tired of buying him the same things over and over again.  Can you help me with some new ideas?

His Two Cents:  Assuming that most guys are like me and want only cool stuff and not a sweater from Banana Republic or shorts from Target as a gift, here are some links to some really cool shit.

    Some really cool stuff here.  Select a category such as Food, Drinking, Camping, or Custom and look at the stuff they put in these wood crates that come with a pry bar to open them or an ammo box.
    This is the top 50 coolest gifts under $20 if you are on a budget or have already blown your budget on a Banana Republic Sweater.
    Every Dude Loves REI.  This store has Camping, Running, Hiking, Biking, Yoga, and Yolo Boards all in one place.  The North Face, Patagonia, Kühl, Hoka, the list goes on.
    OK Ladies – this is the ultimate gift right here but it comes with a price.  You enter your man’s sizes and clothing style into a form.  Then they ship a trunk filled with cool clothing.  From Denim, Chukka Boots, and a Button down to a full on Suit and Tie.  You keep what you want and return the rest.  But it’s not cheap! Check it out!
