When I initially set up my free trial back in May, I opted to get three items a month. Why not, right? I eventually set the plan to one per month, but Gwynnie Bee still sent me three items this time in between the change. It took around four days to get a new box after my previous box was returned to Gwynnie Bee.

Striped Overlay Column dress by Eloquii, size 24

This blue and red striped dress was well worth putting on the top of my list! The fabric of this dress is incredibly comfortable. I love the stretch this jersey/spandex number has because it really hugs my curvy silhouette perfectly! I wore this to a concert recently and was told by someone at it that I looked like I had “leaped out of a scene from John Waters’ Hairspray!” Talk about a heck of a compliment! I adore the vintage feel of this piece; it feels like it could be in a Frankie and Annette movie or even on an episode of Mad Men. It is a fun and casual dress you could wear with sneakers but is also versatile enough that you could pair it with heels and statement bangles or earrings for a day at the office. It is definitely in my possible keeper pile.

Leota Ilana Dress in Turquoise Wild Flower, size 3L

I had another Leota dress in my initial box I received from Gwynnie Bee and I really must say I love the polyester/spandex fabric on both dresses. The fabric really forms the figure and flatters it well without it being too tight and snug. This dress has a very retro vibe to it, which certainly appeals to me, but the a-line skirt and defined waist really add to that pin-up girl look. I paired this dress with red shoes and a matching hair scarf because I really like how it contrasts against the vivid turquoise in the dress. For something more subdued, I could see nude shoes and a delicate necklace pairing nicely with this.

Tocca Blue Peasant Blouse

I wanted to go outside of my comfort zone a bit and opt for something that wasn’t a dress and was a loose shirt for a change. I feel like this shirt has a lot of potential with a high waist skirt or capris like I am wearing, or to go in a whole 70’s Bohemian look paired with flared jeans, floppy hat, and sandals. That being said, this was my least favorite of the bunch due to the length and style. It just wasn’t my ideal fit, but I loved the vivid royal blue color against my hair, so I will give it that!

Verdict: I love Gwynnie Bee! The pieces they sent me in this very blue themed batch all work well in business casual environments but are versatile enough to translate to a fun weekend outing with friends or on a flirty date. My tastes tend to be more outrageous (we are talking about a never-ending sea of leopard print and enamel pin covered biker jackets), but with Gwynnie Bee, I am encouraged to try out styles and brands I may have never thought to before! The items were all high quality and ranging from brands like Elolquii that I already am fond of, to new brands like Leota.

There is something for plus size women of all ages and sizes to choose from too. I also love features on the site that allow you to pair up with a stylist and show pictures of other users modeling their pieces for further style inspiration! Also, the return process is so easy and quick. I can’t wait to see what is in my new box!

  1. You are such a breath of fresh air! Your poses, your style, just your whole vibe is great! I agree with your assessment of the clothes here too – love the dresses, not the top. But you make these clothes look so fun and so cute that you’re like a walking ad for Gwynnie Bee! (and Dia, which I also read).

    • Omg, Bonnie, your comment made my day! It really means a lot to me and I am glad that you liked the reviews. Thank you so much! 😊😊😊😊😊

  2. The blue blouse was extremely flattering on you!! Loved it!! Such a cute outfit!!

    • Thank you, Jennifer! That is so sweet of you! I really love how it has this classic retro feel to it, but still is modern.

  3. That blue blouse is gorgeous! I’m a sucker for that bold bright blue, you make it look even better!

    • Awe, Kathryn! Thank you so much! 😊 It is such a gorgeous blue, right? I had you put it in my closet on Gwynnie Bee immediately!

  4. Yay for the redhead club!!!

    • Heck yes, Sherry! I am a bottle red head, but I am still glad to be in the club!

  5. Awesome review and I do think you should keep both the dresses as they are perfect on you!

    • Thank you, Dawn! I really liked both, but I think the first is definitely being kept. Trust me! I am tempted! Haha. But thank you again! 😊

  6. This review put a smile on my face! I love how you styled the clothes but what I an truly loving more is the unabashed confidence. You are beautiful! And seeing more and more images of a diversity of bodies reminds me of my own beauty. Thank you!

    • Loba, the fact that my review brought a smile to your face is bringing a smile to mine as well! Thank you so much for the heartfelt words. I feel the same way! Visibility of a variety of bodies in different shapes and sizes is so vital. We all need to be reminded of all the different forms of beauty and that we are all beautiful! Thank you again, Loba! 😊

  7. How did you get the aerial view in the first shot?

    • Hey AMH! My cousin, who is like 5’11 or 6 ft tall took the picture. I am 5’6, so she managed to take a few of me from that angle and others. No secret trick, just a taller photographer. 😊 thank you for checking out my review! I appreciate it!

  8. Absolutely beautiful! Love your bold, fun choices and styling – it makes me so happy to see someone my size dressing in a similar way I do, and looking so confident and radiant! Every choice was a winner.

    • Thank you so much, Lenya! Your kind words mean so much! I truly think having more women strutting their stuff and owning themselves is so crucial at any size. We are all beautiful in every size! And thank you, I loved the items they sent me. Such a fun box! Thank you for reading my review again!

  9. Great Review!

    • Katie, thank you so much for reading my review! I am glad you liked it!

  10. you are so freaking adorable! I cant wait to read some more of your reviews!

    • Awe shucks! Addie, you are so sweet! 😊😊😊Thank you and also thank you for reading my review! I am glad you liked it. 😀

  11. I love your choices and style! Such a welcome change and I can’t wait to see more from you!

    • Stephanie, thank you so much! I am excited that you enjoyed the review. Fashion is a passion of mine and I am having a lot of fun with it. I definitely have more reviews up my sleeve! Thanks again!

    • Stephanie, thank you so much! I am excited that you enjoyed the review. Fashion is a passion of mine and I am having a lot of fun with it. You old I definitely have more reviews up my sleeve! Thanks again!

    • Thank you so much, Stephanie! I a am a bit of a “clothes horse, ” so these reviews have been a blast to do. I have more reviews up my sleeve, so stay tuned! 😊 Thanks again. I am so glad you liked my review!

  12. Great review Nicole! I love the turquoise dress on you. So nice for summer and the red accents (love those shoes!) were perfect. You have such a fun style, can’t wait to see more of your reviews. 🙂

    • Thank you, Jann, for such kind words! I am so glad you liked the review too. And thank you about my shoes! I got them on sale from Doc Martens years ago. Best $80 I ever spent possibly! Haha

  13. Great pics!

    • Thank you so much, Shana! 😊

  14. I love the dresses on you but believe it or not I love the royal blue blouse the best. The striped dress is a close second.

    • Thanks, Zo! It is a very comfy top and I really like that it could be dressed up or down, especially in the warmer season. I feel like you could wear it on a cool summer night at the beach or at a business meeting as well. You should definitely try it if you are signed up for Gwynnie Bee!

  15. Love the review and your styling! I love the turquoise dress, it’s so pretty!

    • Awe, thank you, Sara! That is so kind of you! I know, isn’t that dress adorable?! I really like to Leota brand dresses Gwynnie Bee has. So many retro styles and prints!

  16. Great review and bold, confident choices! It’s funny to hear you say the most conservative pick is the one outside your comfort zone. 🙂 I like the turquoise with your red accents the best. I look forward to seeing more of your reviews.

    • Thank you so much, Tammy! That is so sweet of you to say.

      I love red next to turquoise, I feel like they really pop next to one another!

      And I know it is pretty funny that I was less certain about that Royal Blue Tocca shirt. I am fond of snugger fits, so it definitely was a bit of a departure for me. Haha. Thank you again!

  17. Great first review, Nicole! You show a real knack for styling the pieces in a way that makes them pop.

    • Thank you, Marion! I am really excited to be apart of My Subscription Addiction too! Glad you enjoyed the review!
