Jacquard Knit Black Daisy Dress by Hutch, Size 2x – Retail Value $50

This month, you guys will be surprised to see I got SIX pieces instead of my typical three. Let’s talk about this saucy number from Hutch first. As you all may know, I am a sucker for vintage and retro pieces alike. This dress has a jacquard daisy print that I found absolutely irresistible! The fabric has ample stretch and fits like a dream. I love the ruffles on the sleeves and back-of-the-neck bow tie details as well. I styled this piece with my go-to warm weather shoes: black jellies. The jellies are comfortable, but this dress is reminiscent of Jackie O’s classic, refined, yet modern style. I say go full force in accessorizing this dress with a little pillbox hat, white gloves, and stacked black heels to amp this piece for a wedding or other gathering. This piece is incredibly beautiful and easy to wear, so if you stick to black flats and hoops you will still stun and enchant all around you!

Mock Neck Floral Woven Dress by ModCloth, Size 2x – Retail Value $29.50 (Purchased)

Another ultra-retro dress came my way in this month’s box, this time by ModCloth. Much like my August Gwynnie Bee review, I couldn’t resist the charms of another ’60s/’70s inspired ModCloth dress. This one got a permanent home with me, but truly can you blame me? This dress made me think of something that Sharon Tate’s character would have worn in Valley of The Dolls.  The irony in that statement is that I skinned my knee going to see Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, go figure. I apologize that you guys have to see that funky knee throughout this review. Good news is that this dress is rather versatile; the fabric is lightweight for summer, but can work great in cooler weather with added layered pieces. One can easily cover a banged-up knee in fall by pairing this stunner with black tights and platform Mary Janes. Top it off with oversized vintage glasses and a cardigan and you are set!

Pink and Gray Stripe Dress by Hutch, Size 2x – Retail Value $45.50

I received another cute Hutch brand dress in this month’s selections! Goodness, this dress makes me want to blast the Beach Boys and head down to a beach dance party a la Frankie and Annette movies of yore! It’s fall now and this is making me miss the summertime terribly! The material for this dress a bit thick, but has loads of stretch. The 2x fit me, but I wonder if the 3x would give me a tad more length. I constantly felt like my rump was about to pop out of this dress, which had me on guard at work! Otherwise, this dress was adorable!

Wild Tropics Justine Sleeveless Faux Wrap Dress by Leota, Size 2x – Retail Value $61

Speaking of summertime, this dress is the epitome of a warm, breezy day at the beach! I am a sucker for animal prints, but also vivid, vibrant floral patterns. Leota is a brand I have reviewed countless times; I absolutely love them! This faux wrap style dress is no exception to my fondness of this brand. This dress overall fits well, but it seemed to expose my chest a bit more than I would have preferred. I had to keep readjusting at work to make sure my bra wasn’t hanging out– whoopsie! This would be great for a more lax environment; say if I were going on a tropical vacation, this would be key for sure! Since our weather has been remained rather warm yet, I managed to wear this number once out. Style this dress with open-toed mules and a mustard cardigan to bring out the lovely color palette of this beaut!

Golden Dream Sleeveless Smocked Top by City Chic, Size L – Retail Value $61.50

I love a vintage-inspired top, especially if it has a unique yoke. This City Chic top has a smocked detail at the top with short flutter sleeves. I love the mustard yellow floral print with rust polka dots. The top is a thinner lightweight material, so it makes it ideal for fall layering. I styled this piece with black RWAN jeans from a fall Dia & Co review I did last year and gold flats. Imagine this piece with a mustard yellow pencil skirt, booties, and a faux-leather biker jacket for optimum autumnal slay-age!

Boudoir Botanical Belted Jumpsuit by Vince Camuto, Size 20w – Retail Value $49.50

Lastly, we have this lovely black-and-white floral jumpsuit. The fabric is incredibly lightweight and has a crepe-like feel. This piece would be most ideal for spring, summer, and early fall. I can envision this paired with white sneakers and an oversized black cardigan in cooler fall weather. Top the look off with some killer statement necklace or hoop earrings for further sass. This piece is fantastic for the office too due to the modesty button at the chest. This enables you to control how much or how little cleavage you decide to grace the general public with! I styled this jumpsuit with white flats– please don’t tell Beverly Sutphin of my audacious post Labor Day act!

Verdict: My love for Gwynnie Bee goes on! This month’s selections were all great in different ways, but the three standout pieces for me were the black-and-white floral Hutch dress, the animal print Leota dress, and the retro ModCloth mini dress– which happened to be the only piece I bought of the six. What I love most about Gwynnie Bee is that they are a rental service. I appreciate being able to try out different trends, styles, and brands without the commitment to buy. I often suggest Gwynnie Bee to my friends that are in between sizes as well as ones that are looking for officewear without breaking the bank. You also cannot beat the free first month trial– that’s a heck of a deal!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes! All six pieces are available to rent or purchase at Gwynnie Bee.

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 six items this month, so I really stretched out my value this go around! The six items total up to $297, which is $202 more than my monthly subscription fee! That is a heck of a value, but imagine if had I returned these pieces and received even more! Wow!

  1. Thanks, Bess! Yes, this is a super fun box. I can’t suggest it enough!

  2. As always, I love all the dresses on you ! They were made for u !! There was nothing in bad taste to say a dress reminds u of what a character would wear not even Sharon Tate for that dress was really the style back then and what is wrong saying that. makes no sense!!i love all your reviews and references keep them coming lol ; )

    • Thank you, Jeniginger! I love GB, always so many fun selections. And thank you, I really meant no harm in the comment. I just really felt that dress reminded me of the beautiful and ever so talented, Sharon Tate! I would never say anything to mock her or what she endured.

  3. I saw nothing wrong with your comment about Sharon Tate, “Valley of the Dolls,” nor ” Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Facts are facts. Your review and photos were fabulous as usual!

    • I agree def dont see anything wrong with her comment but some people just look for anything to be upset and complain about. Every dress and jumpsuit looks great!

      • Thanks, Nadia! And I am glad you enjoyed all the pieces I reviewed!

    • Thank you so much, Calico Cat! Truly, I was taken off guard by the comment myself because it was not meant to be a jab. Thanks for always commenting and supporting my reviews!

  4. I love and appreciate the Serial Mom reference! I love your picks this month but in particular the wild tropics dress is one of my favorite things you’ve ever worn and I also think the jumpsuit looks so great on you!

    • Jordan, thank you! I am a huge John Waters fan and that movie is a fave of mine! Isn’t that dress adorable? I am ready for fall, though, so I am eager to get more pieces that work for that season!

  5. Your cheeky comment about Valley of the Dolls and going to see Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is in extremely bad taste.

    • There is nothing cheeky about that comment. The dress reminds her of Sharon Tate circa Valley of the Dolls. She skinned her knee going to see a movie that has Sharon Tate as a character. She wasn’t being snarky. She simply noted the irony. Nicole writes amazing reviews and puts herself out there for all to judge. She’s beautifully irreverent and always sassy classy. One thing she can’t be accused of is having bad taste whether it be her words or her pictures.

      • Awe thank you, Shel! You totally got what I meant. I appreciate your kind words and that you enjoy my reviews! It means a lot to me!

    • Tanya, it wasn’t meant to be a cheeky comment. I was saying it was ironic in that I had a dress on that reminded me of Sharon’s style and that I saw a movie that was about her. Maybe my wording was poor for you to infer that? I am sorry if it offended you, I am stunned since I have the upmost respect for Sharon and wasnt jabbing at her in anyway whatsoever.

  6. The golden dream sleeveless tee is very cute and flattering on you. It’s the only piece I would buy, personally, but the mock neck floral dress is also really cute. I can see why you like the subscription.
