This review is of the one item at a time for two items that I received between June 27th through July 18th.
Fruit Salad Dress by City Chic in size XXl (24)
As soon as I saw this dress on the Gwynnie Bee site, I had to closet it! This gorgeous dress is the epitome of summer! There is so much to adore about this piece. First of all, I loved the sweetheart neckline; it is so flirty and flattering. The straps on this are adjustable and the cut is great also because the top of the dress goes high enough to cover some of my underarms. The material has a slight stretch and fits the chest and waist like a dream. The skirt flares out perfectly and defines the waist amazingly; I was lucky to get my dress with the matching belt that further defines the waist! I feel like Miss Yvonne from Pee Wee’s Playhouse in this dress! You too can be the prettiest gal in Puppet Land in this dress: The magic word is CLOSET; as in closet this immediately for all your Labor Day cookouts and shindigs!
Oh, and did I happen to mention also that it has POCKETS?! Yup, that is the cherry on top of this fruit salad as far as I am concerned!
Malla Tie Front Kimono by Junarose in size 24
I love, love, love palm prints, possibly due to a lifetime of watching the Golden Girls. Either way, I can’t deny my love for a perfect tropical palm print. This kimono is so summery and has a fantastic retro vibe I was immediately attracted to. The breezy sheer material has no stretch and the fit it is slightly over sized. A belt was supposed to be included with this piece, but it did not come with mine. I paired the kimono with a black cap sleeved bodycon dress and my favorite pointy toe gold flats; but ultimately I see this kimono working better coupled with a black bikini, Bakelite bangles, and cat eye sun glasses lounging poolside with a cocktail in hand. Talk about living the dream!
Abstract Geo Dress by Adrianna Papell in size 24
I was attracted to the pastel yet bold color pallet on this dress as soon as I laid my eyes on it on the Gwynnie Bee site. The geometric print has a retro, yet very modern feel. I noticed in the description for the dress that it didn’t have stretch, so I sized up. I feel like I could have sized down to a 22 since I had a lot of room to spare in this piece. The polyester fabric is very light and breezy, perfect for those hot late summer days. The flutter slit sleeves are a nice flirty touch too. This dress would look fantastic with some gold bangles and nude strappy sandals for a night out.
Verdict: I love Gwynnie Bee! I really like being able to peruse their selection and chose the pieces myself, unlike most subscription boxes. Gwynnie Bee is a rental service, so being able to actually wear the items rather than just trying them on is fantastic; it allows me to try trends I may have never desired to before. The cost is reasonable too; it is like having a revolving closet like Cher’s in Clueless without having to dish out the big bucks. I also like that the turn around after returning an item is only a few days at most. This service is a total dream for a fashion fiend such as myself!
Do you love Gwynnie Bee as much as I do?
