This review is of the 3 items at a time subscription from 4/11 through 5/15.
This dress was super fancy! It fit great and was flattering, too. The chiffon layer made it feel super feminine, too.
This dress was also very flattering, and I enjoyed the cheerful spring palette!
If you look at the model on the GB website, this dress looks so flattering and sexy. In reality, the color contrast is not as vivid, and it’s pretty dumpy on. Also the material was a bit too thick for comfort in late spring. I was disappointed with this one.
This, on the other hand, I absolutely LOVED! I love the Asian print, and the side panels are very slimming. I seriously considered buying this piece!
This is another piece that looked kind of cool on the model, but when I got it in my hands it was a bit of a trainwreck. It has a very matronly cut, along with having a tie in the front. It’s super flowy. Then the pattern is really cool and futuristic. Then the V is way, way too low. This shirt just doesn’t know what it wants to be.
This top was a pleasure to wear! It was soft, fit well, and hit exactly right at the hip, arm, and bust. The material was a little thick (it’s getting hot here), but not too much. I also really love space prints!
This was my favorite piece all month! It was comfortable yet flattering, and there’s something about the print I totally loved! I hated to send this one back – it’s another one I seriously considered buying!
This top was really cool looking. I absolutely loved the print. The weird thing, though, is that I thought it was one of those mock twinsets where the cardigan and shell are sewn together, but it’s not. It’s just a regular top that drapes that easy! So it was extra roomy and comfortable. Not incredibly flattering, though.
The Verdict: I received eight pieces this month, and due to some travel I wasn’t completely focused on the receive-wear-return-instantly method I had been doing last month. April is still my PR with Gwynnie Bee – 11 pieces in one month. It’s hard to speak of value with a rental service, but $70 is certainly cheaper than buying eight pieces, even at a deep discount. I would probably take advantage of their purchase program more often, except I get bored with clothing pretty quickly, so renting for me is a perfect solution! I also wanted to see what it would take to actually receive a blouse or jacket instead of all dresses like I did last month! I removed all but two or three dresses from my closet this month, and I got all the dresses. BUT I finally got some tops! I really liked (or loved) most of the pieces this month. Gwynnie Bee is working out really well for me!
