Gwynnie Bee Review + 50% Off Coupon – August 2019
Gwynnie Bee is a clothing rental subscription service that formerly catered to plus sizes, but now is far more inclusive in offering sizes 0-32! Gwynnie Bee allows you to select items you like and they are put in a virtual closet. The chosen items sent to you are at random, but you can select priority pieces to be sent to you first. I started using the service and I can say I always have a lot of fun with this box!
Gwynnie Bee is a clothing rental service, but they also have a marketplace on their site where you can buy strongly discounted used rental pieces and brand new accessories, underwear, and work out gear as well!

Gwynnie Bee August 2019 Review
This review is for each of the three-at-a-time items I received August 7th, 2019:
Mirrored Paisley Cap Sleeve Shift Dress, Size 2x — Retail Value $31
I am a sucker for a retro paisley pattern, therefore closeting this dress was an absolute must! I love that the paisley design is on the sides, base hems, and shoulders to frame the Kelly green middle. The orange, yellow, red, and blue look phenomenal against the green as well! This piece has ample stretch that allows the fabric to hug the body well—it looks so cute on! I also adore the cap sleeves, and I find them to be rather flattering too. I couldn’t resist styling this dress with my orange faux cork heels and my green cat eyes to make the colors on the dress pop. You could also pair these with gold metallic flats and a matching bag due to the gold accent at the neckline. This will be a staple to wear at the office or for a summer wedding alike!
Multi Floral Smocked Waist Midi Dress by ModCloth, Size 2x — Retail Value $35.50, Purchased for $25.50 with $10 GB Rewards
Gwynnie Bee sent me yet another colorful stunner, this time by the ModCloth brand! I actually loved this dress so much, I decided to give it a forever home. Gwynnie Bee was having a sale that allowed me to apply a $10 GB Rewards credit I had for additional savings— you can’t beat that! Aside from the price being so right, the style of this dress was on point. I adore the smocked waist and mock neck details on this piece along with the beautiful retro floral pattern. Who knew mustard yellow, pink, red, azure, and navy could be so gorgeous paired together? I opted to pair this new addition to my closet with red-rimmed glasses and mustard pointy mules to enhance the dress even further. This will be an ideal piece to wear for the transition from summer to fall. On chillier days, simply style this with a classic faux leather biker jacket, fishnets, a mustard yellow beret, and ankle booties!
Sleeveless Collared Matte Jersey Jumpsuit by London Times, Size 20w – Retail Value $63
I have a few London Times pieces and I am consistently impressed with their silhouettes and designs. All the items I own by them are rather comfortable and easy to wear, but also immensely stylish. I wore this jumpsuit to my office job and got loads of compliments. You can’t go wrong with black and white—this will easily pair with a virtual rainbow of colors. Style this with a yellow cardigan and black flats or a red biker jacket and heels. You will be set! I also appreciate that they have buttons down the front so this is simple to get in and out of to use the bathroom! Chic and easy to wear! For that alone, I give this piece two thumbs up!
Verdict: After all these years, I am still getting a kick out of Gwynnie Bee! Why you ask? I love the ability to rent pieces vs. buying them. Sometimes I don’t want to spend the big bucks or commit to something I may only want to wear once. I wore the jumpsuit to work and the very next day shipped it off to Gwynnie Bee. Did I mention their service includes free shipping both ways and free dry cleaning? That’s right, I don’t have to worry about laundering a thing with Gwynnie Bee! Plus, they allow you to closet pieces you want and you get points for the number of items your closet, when you return multiple pieces in one prepaid envelope, or when you purchase items. These points can lead to discounts on future purchases! They also have a GB Outlet where you can purchase previously rented pieces at a strong discount! For these reasons, Gwynnie Bee will always be a subscription box I not only suggest to friends, but one I love using myself!
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: Gwynnie Bee’s costs range depending on your subscription and how many items you are sent at a time. I have the $95 three-item-at-a-time plan. This includes free shipping and returns. I can get as many pieces as I like monthly, as long as I return each item first. I got three items this month, but I could get several pieces sent to me in a month’s time if I return each piece after wearing promptly. The three items total up to $129.50, which is $34.50 more than my monthly subscription fee! Imagine the value if I had returned these pieces and received even more!
