RACHEL ROY – Chevron Sweater Dress In Rioja Combo

Yowza! OK, so clearly I did not wear this knit sweater dress outside the house. It’s a bit small and way too body conscious for me even if it were a better size. I’m sure it would look fabulous on some, though.

LUCKY BRAND – Utility Jacket In Fig

On the other hand, I LOVED this jacket and wore it all month long! It’s cotton and not stretchy at all, but it’s still really soft and comfortable. I also really like the color. It’s very high quality for a utility jacket.

LUCKY BRAND – Tee Dress In Black Multi

This dress is a little out of season, but I wore it to church with a black cardigan and felt really pretty and chic. It’s still not super cold here in Georgia yet, so it was fine. I love the print on this cotton knit dress! I’m a big fan of Lucky Brand.

LUCKY BRAND – Asymmetrical Military Jacket In Dark Sage

I also loved this jacket! How lucky to get two Lucky Brand jackets in the same month! It’s also cotton, but this one has more structure and is shorter, plus it has more stylish details. I like the color of the utility jacket more, but I definitely preferred the cut of this one.

LUCKY BRAND – Lace Up Embroidered Top

It must be my lucky month! Despite getting two amazing jackets and a pretty dress from Lucky Brand, this was my favorite piece all month! It’s a fairly lightweight cotton knit, and the embroidered detail is just amazing. I am a sucker for cool embroidery! Love it!

RAFAELLA – Curvy Fit Bootleg Pant In Regular

Once in a while, I slip on one of the golden rules of subscribing to Gwynnie Bee, and that is to always check the inseam length before closeting pants. Since you are renting them, you can’t hem them or anything, so these were basically of no use to me. They are a nice pair of poly/rayon black slacks, and they fit well in every regard except length. If I had purchased these, I would be happy to have them hemmed and wear them regularly. On the other hand, they are nothing really special.

The Verdict: I love Gwynnie Bee! This month was so Lucky! I loved all four Lucky pieces, especially the top. I also got a lot of use out of both jackets. I like trying new things all the time, and Gwynnie Bee gives me loads of new options! It’s so fun!

  1. I have the dark sage Lucky jacket at home and really like it, I live in Augusta Ga and the temperature here makes it easy to skip a lot of winter items, there’s a super cute Nic & Zoe dress similar to the Lucky one you’d probably like too. Thanks, I like seeing Gwynnie Bee reviews.

    • Thanks Anna!

  2. So, you paid $95 for three items you can’t keep? It doesn’t seem cost effective to me.

    • She received 6 items in the month, but had 3 at a time. I choose to subscribe, too. I rarely keep anything for more than one wear (although I did keep one item for a few weeks, then finally just bought it). 🙂 I can have 4 items at a time, and generally have about 12 items come in per month, but I use the option to tell them I am returning items, so they ship the replacements more quickly. I love how it offers a variety for my wardrobe and I try things I wouldn’t try otherwise. It’s been a way to get away from a black wardrobe!

      • I’ll admit that it can be an expensive subscription I’m on the highest tier and get 11 items at a time but I just don’t really buy clothes anymore. I easily spent over $200 month buying clothes on sale here and now I just do Gwynnie Bee. I’ve been subscribed long enough to be on their old grandfathered pricing but it’s under 190$ month for at least 30 different pieces of clothes a month to wear when I want to change things up.

    • If you subscribe to a longer period the price drops significantly, plus there is the option to buy.

      I am trying it out this month, but I haven’t got my first shipment yet. It will be about $240? I think if I want to buy a year of it, about $20 a month, vs. the $50 a month. Normally I wouldn’t do a rental, but since my size fluctuates so much when I am pregnant/nursing if I bought clothes now they wouldn’t fit in a year anyway.

      I’m not sure I will get it though. It depends on how well things fit, how fast the shipping/turn around is, and if I actually think I can find enough items on the site I can use. I barely managed to get 25 things in my ‘closet’ on the site, so it also depends on how frequently they get new arrivals.

      • I just got my first package! That is a fast turn around considering I signed up on the 28th.

        I got one of my prioritized items + a dress from my closet – unfortunately they don’t coordinate so I can’t wear them together.

        The dress *mostly* fits. It’s a faux wrap and whoever designed it rather goofed, I think. It’s perfectly tailored on one side of the wrap, but the other bulges/blouses out in a very ungainly fashion – it’s doubtful it would fit anyone correctly. I’ll probably wear it to church once with a jacket over to hide the weird bulge then return it.

        The Chevron Open Print Cardigan I’d prioritized is gorgeous though. They didn’t have it in my size so I went a size up, but fortunately it’s a piece that looks great oversized. It’s warm, cozy, and way more fashionable than the sweaters I have lying around the house. I’d be tempted to buy it but $66 is a little out of my budget. (Sometimes their stuff ends up in their outlet shop at a much higher discount, though, so I’ll keep an eye on it.) I like it so much I might keep it until my sub runs out, though!

        So far? Intrigued, but not sold yet. If the turn-around is fast and the pieces generally fit, I might buy a year at the $120 1-item a month price.
