Gwynnie Bee Box Review + Free Month Coupon – July 2016

I actually got several compliments on this dress when I wore it! I was surprised because it felt kind of sack-ish. I thought the print was really fashion forward, though.
I’m sorry. I fell for it again. I just keep thinking that there must be a reason that Johnny Was clothing is so expensive. I once again proved to myself that the reason is not because it’s flattering on me, or any other real woman I’ve ever seen it on. This dress is a departure from their usual embroidered southwestern fare, so maybe that’s why I thought it would be different. It wasn’t.
My husband really liked this dress on me, for obvious reasons! This dress was a wiggle and a half! The only problem I had with this dress is that the tulip skirt in front, combined with the pencil action, meant that when I sat down there was a clear and easy view of way too much! It’s too bad because this dress was really cute otherwise.
This was a soft knit top with a layered look in front, which made it a little interesting. It was easy and comfortable.
I am usually a huge fan of Junarose, but this blouse was so odd! The body had sort of a dolman shape, which is usually flattering on me, but in this case it’s just too tight around my hips. The sleeves were the strangest part, though; they go from puffy to fitted to angel sleeve in two different sections on a half-sleeve. I didn’t like this one much.
Please excuse this picture, haha! I am still getting used to modeling these outfits, and sometimes I just can’t take it too seriously. I also was on my way to a show, so I couldn’t stop making rock hands. Anyway, the name of this top is a bit of a misnomer, because it was equally strappy in the front and back. This was pretty sheer, but it came with a cami underneath. I loved this top! It was really cool and comfortable on a hot summer evening, and I thought it looked pretty cool and appropriate for the event.
I was so excited to see these funky, exclusive pieces from Hemant & Nandita show up on the New Arrivals page at Gwynnie Bee! This is exactly my style. The only thing I didn’t like about this was the fabric (polyester). Is it just me, or does it seem somehow wrong to have a hippie print on synthetic fiber? I was a little surprised, but otherwise this was an awesome top!
This dress is super cute, and I actually think it looked pretty good on. I felt kind of uncomfortable in it, though, because it’s just so cutting edge! If it just looked like it does in the front, length and pattern wise, all the way around, I would have totally loved this dress.
These shorts were pretty surprising, to be honest. They are basically lounge shorts, and I thought they would be more structured. They are also super short!
Verdict: This month of Gwynnie Bee was full of surprises! Not all of them were pleasant, but one thing I really enjoy about Gwynnie Bee is that it’s an easy way to try out new styles without committing to keep a garment forever. I have found a lot of new things I love, and learned a lot about what looks good on me and what doesn’t. It’s not always what I think it will be! This is a really fun subscription!
