Today I’m sharing my most recent style box from Evereve’s styling service, Trendsend. Evereve is one of my favorite stores for so many reasons: on-trend and flattering styles, great brands, tempting sales, and hands-down the best salespeople I’ve ever encountered. At every Evereve store I’ve visited, the salespeople make an effort not just to help you find what you’re looking for, but something that beats your expectations. They are knowledgeable about fabrics and cuts, they know what looks good on various body styles, and they have usually tried on just about every product they sell so they can give great advice about fit and styling tips. So when I found out that Evereve stores had a subscription-type styling service (like Stitch Fix), I jumped right on board and have had great experiences with it every time.
With Trendsend, you can do a one-time box or set up a subscription. I have my subscription set up to send me a box once every 3 months. The way it works is you fill out a style profile so their stylists can get to know your style and preferences, and then you pay a $1 (that’s right, just $1!) fee and they send you three separate outfits to try on. You return what you don’t want and buy what you do, and shipping is free both ways. It’s that simple. They do now have a referral program, so if any of your friends sign up you get 20% off of your next Trendsend order.
Here’s what I received in this fourth box. *These prices reflect the 20% referral discount I received when one of my friends tried Trendsend.
- Articles Of Society – Stephanie Skinny with Step Hem ($54.40)
- Rd Style – Lace Back Swing Sweater ($54.40)
- Thirty Nine 42 – Rose Gold Bead Statement Earring ($25.60)
This sweater was really calling my name. I tried to take a few photos so you could see how ADORABLE the bottom edge and back were. I didn’t end up getting it only because it’s more of a date night sweater and not something I could wear to school. Not that I don’t do date nights — it’s just that the date nights my husband I have tend to be casual movie-dinner nights. But now looking at this sweater again and remembering how soft and chic it was, I really wish I had bought it. The Articles of Society jeans fit really well and the step hem was so on-trend. And these earrings! I really, really wanted to keep them but they were a little too heavy for me. I’m really picky about having lightweight earrings: if there is the slightest feeling of drag, I’m out.
In the photo above I brightened it up a lot so you can see the back detailing. The sweater is actually very true black and my photo makes it look washed out: that’s my poor photography, not the sweater. 🙂
And here’s a close-up of these stunning earrings. They are absolutely beautiful!
- Free People – Dream Away Bralette ($30.40)
- Rd Style – Off-Shoulder Sweater ($62.40)
The color of this sweater was gorgeous: it’s something you could wear in winter and also on into spring. It was so soft and incredibly flattering. And I’ve never worn a bralette before, but seeing this one I “got” why people do. The creamy white lace straps looked gorgeous peeking out of the off-shoulder sweater. The best thing about this bralette was that you could wear a real bra beneath it if you wanted to. I would want to: there’s not much to hold anything up in the bralette itself. ‘Nuf said.
- Peyton Jensen – Suede Skirt (15.99)
- Peyton Jensen – Destructed Ruffle Sweater (54.40)
- Braeve – Levi Embroidered Pullover ($62.40)
These pieces were all so comfortable and cute! The destructed sweater had a pretty ruffle and the distressed parts gave it some edge and kept it from being too fussy. The “suede” skirt was stretchy and very soft. You could make it casual, professional, or even dressy, and at $15.99 it was such a steal. Then as you can see the embroidered pullover has the perfect blend of casual style and, well, embroidery! Embroidery was huge last summer and fall, and it’s still going strong into this spring season. It would be a pretty safe bet that we’ll still be seeing it this summer.
All of these pieces were ones that you could wear together or mix and match into your existing wardrobe, and all of them are ones you could wear in winter and still be wearing on into spring. True to Evereve, they were all extremely comfortable and flattering, too! I didn’t end up buying any of these pieces, but I’m kind of kicking myself that I didn’t keep a few things. Part of the problem was I didn’t want to spend the money to buy it all, but I also couldn’t decide which pieces were my favorite. I really liked them all! Just look at these pretty colors and textures:
As you can see, my stylist, Paula, from the Des Peres, MO (St. Louis area), Evereve store is amazing. She has styled all of my Trendsend boxes so far, and they have all been fabulous! Check them out if you’re interested: Trendsend #1, Trendsend 2#, Trendsend #3.
If you are looking for a fun, no-risk styling experience, this is it. I highly recommend giving Trendsend a try! I still also receive Stitch Fixes, and from time to time I experiment with other styling services (Wantable, etc.). I’ve been thinking about trying Fabletics because I’m obsessed with cute workout clothes.
I’d love to hear your experience with Fabletics — or other services, for that matter! Which services have you tried and what are your thoughts?
