This is not the world’s most flattering dress on me, but I did wear it out to lunch with my mother, and I felt really stylish, comfortable, and seasonal. It was a little heavy for what I normally think of as a spring dress, but it worked.
For Robbie Bee, I think this dress was pretty stylish, but I wound up not wearing it. I didn’t like the way it made my upper body look or feel, so I had to just send this one back. It fit, but I was uncomfortable.
For ages and ages, I held the belief that Johnny Was pieces are frumpy and overpriced, but my mind has been swayed. This is the fourth or fifth piece I have worn (thanks to Gwynnie Bee) that made me feel stylish and pretty. I wore this out to lunch with a good friend, and I felt awesome in it. It may still be overpriced, but I think their styles have come a long way.
I wore this dress out to dinner at a really upscale place, even though it is a pretty casual piece. I dressed it up with jewelry and a killer bag, and I felt completely comfortable and cute! I like the way the lines of this print are so figure flattering! I only wish it was made of natural fibers, but I guess sometimes synthetics have their place.
Once a month I go out to a super casual bar with my best friend, and this month I wore this top to sort of spice things up. I usually wear something like a tee shirt and ratty jeans, but I thought it would be fun to look decent at least one time! Haha! This top was great. I think it’s flattering and not too dressy, but could definitely be dressed up if I wanted. This was another poly blend, but it wasn’t heavy on the spandex like a lot of these pieces tend to be, so the fabric actually held its shape and had a nice flow.
I actually love this top, even though it is chiffon, which I usually do not like. This top is so flattering! I felt like it was a little warm for the hot weather we are having here in Georgia, but the print offsets the black really well.
A little over a week ago, I had to travel to Los Angeles for work. Anytime I was not at work, I was living in these shorts. They are super comfortable! The length isn’t quite right (short legs), but I played with cuffing them a bit, too. And who really cares when I was mainly wearing them around the hotel and out for a hike.
This dress did not work out for me at all. I was initially disappointed to find that it is a poly/spandex blend, and it looked like a cotton knit in the picture which I think would have worked much better. It is also one of those dresses that’s above the knee on the model but is a midi dress on me, which I also didn’t like. My husband kind of hated it. He couldn’t understand it all. I thought it might be fun and casual to wear to the kids’ soccer game, but no.
I wore this top out to dinner the other night, and I felt so pretty! This top is gorgeous, and I love the embroidery so much! The only thing I didn’t like about it was that the border trim around the shoulders didn’t want to lay flat all the time. I don’t know why it just kind of annoyed me from time to time.
This dress is super cute, but it’s not really my style. I enjoyed trying it on, but I wound up not wearing it out. I don’t think it is flattering on me, but I can never tell if a dress with a belt or elastic at the waist is going to work or not. I also don’t usually like wearing sleeveless items because I don’t think my arms are my best feature, and unfortunately, Gwynnie Bee is very sleeveless-heavy in the spring and summer. It was worth a shot, I suppose.
Verdict: I love Gwynnie Bee! I was really diligent about returning things quickly and notifying, and I think I got a few more items than usual because of it. I got so many pieces, it’s hard to choose a favorite, but I loved the London Times dress and the Karen Kane top. I like trying new things all the time, and Gwynnie Bee gives me loads of new options! It’s so fun!
