Gwynnie Bee is a size-inclusive clothing rental subscription service offering sizes 0-32! Gwynnie Bee allows you to select items you like that are put in a virtual closet. The chosen items in your virtual closet are sent to you at random, but you can select priority pieces to be sent to you first. Since I started using the service, I can say I always have a lot of fun with this box!

The cost depends on how many items you would like to rent out at a time. Starting at $49 per month for 1 item and up to $199 for 10 items. Gwynnie Bee also has a marketplace on their site where you can buy steeply discounted used rental pieces and brand new accessories, underwear, and workout gear as well!

This is a review of the three items at a time for $95/month.

What's Inside This Box

Color Bock Red Fit-And-Flare Dress by Every Body Every Wear, Size3x — Cost to Keep $62.50

 

I had been eyeballing this Every Body Every Wear dress for some time. Orange is my favorite color and I love that it is an accent against the true red in this dress. I had really high expectations, but I wasn't extremely wowed by this piece. The fabric is light and has some stretch. I think the cut is a bit oversized on me, but I am not complaining because it is usually the opposite which is far more frustrating. I did some simple styling with my wooden open-toed heels and a pair of coordinating earrings from MindFlowers. This piece could easily be worn in summer or fall alike.

Neoprene Column Skirt in Paloma Stripes by Eloquii, Size 24 — Cost to Keep $61.50

 

Eloquii is one of my favorite brands, so I was especially excited to get this skirt. I have so many pieces from them-- it is not funny! When this print came out in the summertime, I was mighty tempted to buy it, but I am actually pleased I got to try it on without a commitment via Gwynnie Bee. I opted to get the size 24 expecting it to be a bit roomier than a 22, but it was still pretty snug! The neoprene has a great thickness to it, so you don't have to worry about your underwear print or color showing through. The material also has ample stretch. I opted to wear it with the same open-toe heels, a black short-sleeved mock turtleneck top, neon pink heart earrings, and green cat eyeglasses to bring out the color palette. This is definitely an ensemble I would have worn to the office and then out to hang with friends afterward too. This would look awesome too with a white button-down and pink or green blazer or with an orange tank and baby flats or sandals in the summer.

Ruffle Printed Midi Dress by Maison Tara, Size 20w — Cost to Keep $77.00

 

The warm tones keep coming with this springy dress as well. I must have closeted this number some time ago because I had selected a size 20 dress! It fit but was extremely tight on the back and in the chest. I would definitely prefer a size up for maximum comfort. I do love the floral abstract paint strokes in the shades of pink, orange, and chartreuse on this dress. I opted to bring out the orangey-red shade with some Mod-style acrylic earrings from one of my fave makers, RebsRainbowHaus. I can't see this dress really working for this time of year, especially since we are gearing towards the holidays. This is definitely something I would wear in the office in early spring with a chartreuse cardigan and flats or this exact look to a warmer weather baby shower or wedding.

Verdict

This month's Gwynnie Bee selections were my dream color palette. I love all the warm oranges and pinks with touches of reds and chartreuse! I was here for it! I think my favorite of the bunch was the Eloquii skirt. It was a bit tighter than I had expected, but I loved the vertical print and combo of colors.  I was excited to try the Maison Tara dress and another EVERY BODY EVERY WEAR piece too.  That is one reason I love Gwynnie Bee so much-- the ability to try brands and trends that might be new to you! I also appreciate the flexibility of renting items and being able to purchase at a discounted price if you choose. There have been so many instances where I was in a fitting room loving an item, but knowing I would be flippant about a piece. It might be great for one event, but when will I wear it again? Look at Gwynnie Bee as a big closet you and your friends share in that respect! You have a wedding, but nothing special in your closet to wear-- hit up Gwynnie Bee! You just got hired for a new office job, but you are in between sizes and don't want to buy a new wardrobe-- DING! Gwynnie Bee!  Gwynnie Bee offers all previously worn items at a discount, but as a member, you also qualify for their frequent sales on at-home and returned items. You also accrue points simply by being a member that can provide you $5, $10, or $15 off credits! I have purchased some pieces in the past with my credits for less than $10! The potential savings are rather impressive!

All these things are great, but my favorite thing: I don't have to leave my house. With different Covid variants, flu season, and winter rolling in-- Sorry, I do not want to be at the mall! No need to get in the car with your masks and hand sanitizer for a run to the store-- I am having a mini fashion show in my living room, yinz!   What are you waiting for-- especially with 50% off for your first month! This month's selections were fun-- are you as eager as me to see what is in store for us next month?

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. The three items total up to $201, which is $106 more than my monthly plan! That isn't too shabby! Imagine also the even greater value had I sent these pieces back sooner and received additional pieces!
