Do you love buying cute new clothes to wear to school? I do! However, between the hours I spend teaching at school and the time I spend being a mom at home, there isn’t much time left for shopping. I found the perfect solution to that problem! Trunk Club is a service from Nordstrom that sends designer clothes to your door. Here’s why it’s perfect for teachers.
Reasons Trunk Club is Perfect for Teachers
#1 – Teachers love things that are pretty and organized.
When my first trunk arrived, I was in awe of how organized it was. The clothes were bundled together, and everything fit in perfectly. I felt like I was unwrapping a whole box of presents on Christmas morning. I almost felt guilty untying the bows and messing up the pretty piles.
#2 – Teachers don’t have time to waste.
You spend hours looking through racks of clothes for the perfect outfit. You finally find it, but the store is out of your size. All that time is wasted! Trunk Club solves that problem by having a personal stylist choose outfits just for you.
When you sign up for Trunk Club, you will answer questions about your style preferences to give your stylist an idea of what you like. I even had a whole phone conversation with my stylist so she could get to know me. I was able to tell her I wanted clothing for teaching, so she didn’t send me anything too low cut or short.
#3 – We enjoy getting personalized notes just as much as our students do.
With every trunk, you will receive a personal note from your stylist. She will explain everything she included in your trunk and how to wear it. These notes will make you feel extra special, just like the notes you write to your students.
#4 – Teachers have a busy schedule.
There’s no time to shop after school, and the weekends are always busy, too. There’s no time to go to the store and try on clothes. Trunk Club solves that problem. Your stylist will send your trunk directly to your front door.
Then, you can try on the clothes in the comfort of your own home. I’m sure I’m not the only one who hates dressing rooms. Now, I’ll never set foot in one again. I wait until my kids are in bed and try on all the outfits. My husband is here to give me feedback, and I can try the clothes on with things I already have in my closet.
#5 – We like getting compliments on our clothing from our students.
Do your students notice every time you have a cute new outfit or accessory? Mine do. Shoes, jewelry, nail polish, and clothes – they don’t miss anything. Every outfit I’ve kept from Trunk Club has received many compliments from students and teachers at my school.
#6 – Surprises are fun!
You don’t have to know what’s inside your trunk until it’s delivered to your door. I love the surprise of opening the box and taking the items out one-by-one!
If you don’t enjoy surprises as much as me, your stylist will send you an email so you can preview your trunk before it ships. You’ll be able to see what’s coming and even remove any items you don’t want. I don’t open that email because I like the element of surprise.
#7 – Trunk Club can push you outside your comfort zone.
I don’t know about you, but I tend to stick to the same types of clothing. I find a sweater I like, and I buy it in five different colors. Most of my clothes are the same colors and styles.
Trunk Club has helped me expand my wardrobe. My stylist chooses some things that I absolutely love and other things that I would never choose for myself in a store. I always try everything on, and sometimes I’m surprised by how much I like an item I originally thought I would hate.
#8 – We love anything that makes our lives easier.
Returns with Trunk Club are so easy! Just put the items you don’t want to keep back in the trunk, attach the included return label, and email them to set up a UPS pick-up. It’s that simple!
You have a week to try everything on and make your decisions. You can keep as much or as little as you like. There is a $25 styling fee. However, it goes toward anything you choose to keep, and I’ve never had trouble finding something to keep!
