This review is of the 3 items at a time subscription from 9/21 through 10/20.
Let’s start things off right – with a Triste shift dress! I have been commenting lately on how these dresses are so flattering on my body type. Fortunately, they make lovely 3/4 sleeved ones such as this (as well as the short-sleeved ones I’ve been reviewing all summer). Hooray!
First of all, this dress was really slimming and very flattering overall. Unfortunately, it was a little too heavy for the September heat wave we were having, and a little too dressy for anything I had going on at the moment. This is one of the very few pieces I’ve received from GB that I didn’t wear out of the house, but I wish I had received it later in the year so I could have.
Somehow I wound up getting four faux wrap dresses this month, three of them from Jete. I don’t have many complaints about GB, but I do wish they would pay a little bit of attention to how often they send me the same style. Fortunately, these are very flattering and don’t show too much cleavage. I loved the jade color on this one, too.
It was technically too late in the season for me to wear this dress, but I’m soooo glad I did. It kind of looks like a train wreck on the dress form, but on me, somehow, it looked really flattering! Very slimming, and the draped pockets added tons of style. I got lots of compliments, actually! The colors are brighter than I would normally wear, but they really worked on me! Then when I had this piece at home, GB had a 35% off at-home items promo, so guess what? I bought it! This is only the second piece I’ve bought from GB, it really was that special. Sadly, I now have to wait until May to wear it again…
This kimono looked so cool online, but in real life it was pretty disappointing. I think knit and filmy fabrics don’t go so well together; I wasn’t expecting that. It just looked kind of dumpy on me. It does have a really pretty print, though. Not everything is going to be equally wonderful, I suppose.
This dress was fine. It felt very feminine yet comfortable.
This dress was super cool! It’s another Jete faux wrap, so it was flattering (the front panel is very forgiving). Plus I loved the space print.
This isn’t as far-out as the space dress, but this was definitely my favorite print of all the Jete faux-wrap dresses.
This dress is prefect for fall! I love the fall colors. Otherwise it’s pretty similar to the other wrap dresses from this month.
The Verdict: Gwynnie Bee is now a regular and wonderful part of my day-to-day wardrobe, and I couldn’t be happier! This month I turned around 9 items, which is pretty average for a 3-at-a-time month in my experience. It’s true that I occasionally get something I don’t love, but that’s ok. I love having something different to wear practically every day!
