Gwynnie Bee


 "Gwynnie Bee is a monthly subscription service for sizes 10-32. Get unlimited access to a closet the size of a department store with unlimited free shipping" 

Myke told me about this website where you can "rent" clothes. I thought it sounded like a cool idea and when I found out that they offer a free first month subscription I jumped at the chance to give it a shot. I went to the website, built my closet, and clothes began coming in the mail. I thought it would be fun to share with y'all my experience. All in all I got 10 different pieces to try out over my month subscription. I was pretty quick about wearing them (or trying them on) and sending them back. Pictures were taken courtesy of the Afterlight app, Myke D, and my Leahlove.

This first dress is the ASOS Curve Skater Dress with Mono Print Blocking and a size 18.
It photographs well, but was a bit tight in the tummy and back fat area.
This shirt is the Kische Chevron Stripe Chiffon Tunic in Red size 2X.
I felt so 60's in this shirt. It was comfy but a little big.
This is the ABS Mesh Insert Jersey Dress size 2X.
I really loved this dress. I thought it was so cute and a little flirty with the mesh inserts.
The arms were a little tight which is I decided not to keep it.
This is the Lands' End Citrus Print Cardigan size 2X.
I thought this cardi was so fun! I probably needed the size down though because it was so roomy.
This is the BB Dakota Lazarus Dress in size 20.
I had actually been eyeing this dress on ModCloth and was so excited to see it on Gwynnie Bee! It's too dressy for any of my needs and the top of it fit sort of awkward. You can't really see in the pictures but there was some gapage around the arm holes.
This is the Triste Rosewater Fit & Flare Dress size 2X.
This dress was so cute, but it did not feel like "jersey" as described. It was heavy like winter material. Besides the weird feeling fabric though I thought it was cute and fun!
This is the Tart Collections Ilene Dress in Water Chevron size 3X.
This dress was perfect for Myke's accordion club concert. It was comfortable, appropriately modest, but still young and summery!
This is the Kiyonna Abby Twist Top in Teal Chevron Size 3.
I had the safety pin the top of this one to be a bit more modest. This shirt was so comfortable and the little twist underneath the bust line added a great shape.
This is the New Look Scuba Skater Dress in Floral Print size 20.
I really loved this dress. The mesh cutout added a little bit of edginess to the floral and it was comfortable. The cinched waist is so flattering and it was the perfect length.
This is Spruce & Sage's Summer Floral Fit & Flare Dress Size 20.
I bought this one. I love the pattern. I love how I feel in it.
The only thing I don't love is the super long tie that's uneven, but I'm going to work on it.

As far as Gwynnie Bee goes, I absolutely love this service. I had at least 8 things in my "closet" at all times and they were constantly adding new items. They had brands I love and was excited to try. When they couldn't ship my next package out quick enough they even extended my membership a week! The only reason I canceled my subscription is because I really have enough clothes and just couldn't justify $35-80 a month on pretty dresses.

Until Next Time,

  1. I love that cardigan and absolutely all of the dresses and the tops...

    Okay. I love it all, and you look super adorable. I've been thinking about subscribing to Gwynnie Bee for a while now, and you've pretty much convinced me that I have to do it. My coworkers will be glad when I walk in NOT wearing the same skirt/shirt combo I've been wearing pretty much every 3 days this whole summer.

    1. Marisa, I don't think you will regret your choice! If I could afford it I definitely would've kept it going! I still had about 8 things in my closet when I had to cancel! There was the cutest pineapple top I've been eyeing that I never got!
