Last week I received my first Elaine Turner Trunk! As a new Personal Stylist with Elaine Turner, I was so excited to receive my first sampling of items. I have the option of receiving two trunks per month with 8-10 items each time! I get to pick and choose what I want to see, so if you're in my neck of the woods and have something specific you are interested in, please let me know and I'll add it to my next trunk. OR I can curate a box just for you for only $1. Shipping and returns are FREE! If you'd like me to curate your box, fill out this Style Profile.
As a general reference, I'm about 135 lbs, 5'2", pear-shaped, and typically wear a 6-8 (M). Sometimes I size down, I rarely size up.
This dress is made out of lightweight linen and so perfect for so many reasons! First of all, it is lined on the bottom. Five points for attention to the details. I like that it has an adjustable drawstring waist to flatter any shape. Because of the drawstring, you can also adjust it to your own comfort level. It is the perfect length and hits my legs just above the knee. I could see this dress easily transition from a spring/summer staple with flats or sandals, to a fall piece with tights and boots. It is really versatile and comfortable. I got this in a medium but it was way too big, especially around the waist and the bottom. I'd definitely recommend sizing down on this dress.
This jacket is so cute! It would be a fun addition to your summer essentials. I think it would look great with the Daya dress (above) and Maddie sneakers (below). Layer the Bebe for a fresh, feminine twist on lightweight jackets. Floral embroidered detail transforms a classic, sporty style into a statement making piece for Summer! I ordered this in a large (just for size comparison) and it was way too big. I'd definitely need this item in a small.
OH MY! I'm obsessed with these shoes! Champagne trimming gives this sporty style a glamorous feature. This shoe is comfortable and chic. It really could go with so many things... jeans and a t-shirt, the Daya dress above, shorts... the list is endless and I may have to get these for my own closet. They really are a great neutral sneaker and OH-SO-COMFY (one of my main criteria these days!).
This is the perfect little purse for a girl on the go! It is just the right size to fit what you need and keep it all organized. The detachable gold chain strap gives you the option to rock it as a crossbody or just a wallet. I ordered the cork and loved the neutral look - it has just a hint of gold throughout which glams it up a little bit without being too flashy. It is a well-crafted, high-quality crossbody that could last for years. The one drawback I found was the wallet closure. It is magnetic and the chain gets caught on it frequently. I personally think that could get super-annoying after awhile. 🙁
This bag gives you the best of both worlds with short handles if you want to elongate the bag, and an attachable long strap for the hands-free crossbody look. With a spacious interior and a zipper for security, this bag is perfect for holding all your essentials. I ordered it in the vintage navy snake and loved the neutral color in a fun texture. For a multi-tasking mom, this is the perfect bag. It can hold what you (and everyone else in your family) needs, isn't bulky, and super-versatile. Make it a crossbody so your hands-free, or carry it with the handles.
These fringe earrings are on-trend! I got them in the grey color. They are lightweight and will add pizzazz to any outfit.
Marlin is an Elaine Turner staple that includes a generous interior, convenient pockets and a sturdy shoulder strap! I ordered this handbag in Vachetta distressed. Not knowing what vachetta was I turned to Google. According to this article on the Handbag Spa, Vachetta is untreated Italian leather generally used on luggage and luxury handbags such as Coach and Louis Vuitton. Over time Vachetta will age, or Patina (like copper), to a dark brown and develop it's own unique characteristics. I thought it would be a great neutral but honestly, I wasn't crazy about this color. It was a cross between beige and light pink and just wasn't my fav. I like the structure of bag and how sturdy it is. It has ample room for all the things without being too bulky. I think it would look fantastic in either the golden silver or black.
Keep your smartphone stylish while still providing security and protection. This wallet has more than enough room for your cards, cash and coins! This is the perfect wallet for throwing in your bag or using as a clutch for a night on the town. I ordered the black one, which is unfortunately unavailable at this time. But I loved that it was classy, functional, and nice enough to use as a clutch/wristlet. The chain is detachable so it makes the wallet multi-purpose!
