What's Inside This Box

Hibiscus Floral Puff Sleeve A-Line Dress by Calvin Klein, Size 22 — Cost to Keep $100.00

 

When I was in middle school in the 90s, Calvin Klein was so trendy and popular. I remember I had to have CK0ne cologne, regardless of the fact it didn't smell all that great on me. My mom and I were always going on shopping trips to Marshall's and TJ Maxx's to look around for Calvin Klein pieces. My prized pieces back then were a pair of denim overalls that had the CK brand tag on the pocket, CK logo t-shirt, and CK mini backpack that we scored for a fraction of the retail price. I was kind of a walking billboard for Calvin Klein back then! After that era, I gravitated more towards the style and personality of a piece, and less about logos and brand names. I must say, I love this Calvin Klein dress. Yes, the brand is legendary, but more so because this piece is incredibly well made and extremely comfortable to wear. It fits my body perfectly and I absolutely love the floral print. This is such an ideal dress to wear for your family holiday events. Wear this with tights and ankle booties with a long line cardigan--  you are set! I opted to add some quirkiness with my heart-shaped vanity mirror earrings from Gloss and Shimmer and my go-to white Mary Jane shoes.

Leopard Print Marigold Cardigan by Andree by UNIT, Size 2x — Cost to Keep $59.00

 

Two of my favorite things are combined in this sweater: a beautiful, rich, golden marigold shade along with animal print. We know I yearn for everything and anything that is leopard print, so this piece was truly a must! I also love how the print is mixed and matched-- it makes this cardigan that much more unique. The knit isn't too thick and can easily be layered. It isn't bulky, but still provides warmth and can be worn easily through the Fall to Spring months. This would bring so much brightness to our dull grey winter days by pairing it with your favorite and t-shirt and jeans. I opted to top off my outfit for the Calvin Klein floral dress with this cutie! I am a sucker for pattern clashing and this sweater complements the dress so perfectly-- it adds so much depth and personality to the already adorable ensemble!

Ditsy Floral Pink Dress by Donna Morgan, Size 20w — Cost to Keep $27.50

 

I have reviewed and fallen in love with so many Donna Morgan brand dresses over the years. The brand's pieces generally come in beautiful, bold, retro prints in bright, vivacious, colors-- such standout numbers. The cuts always hug the body just right. The styles of the dresses also match the vintage-inspired meets modern vibe that I love-- so, I never cease to closet or choose one of the brand's dresses when I can! This dress is one of the rarities for the brand with me where I am kind of indifferent. I love the length of this dress-- it is ideal for work environments. The print isn't my favorite, though. It kind of reminds me of a sea of pink, coral, and lavender jelly beans. I did some simple styling and paired this number with black and white loafers from one of my recent ShoeDazzle reviews and acrylic circle earrings. This would look great in winter months paired with black opaque tights, ankle booties, and a faux fur coat for extra warmth and sass.

Verdict

This month's Gwynnie Bee selections were filled with fun prints and bright colors-- right up my alley! My favorites were definitely the Calvin Klein dress and Andree by UNIT cardigan, especially combined together! The Donna Morgan dress I was a bit lukewarm on, but that is okay! That is the beauty of a service like Gwynnie Bee-- the ability to rent and try out pieces without any commitment to buy! If I do fall madly in love with an item, I do have the option to buy as well! How many times in your life have you tried on something in a store and loved it, but decided against buying anything because of the price? Or maybe you opted against the piece because you figured you would only wear it for one occasion and then it would collect dust in your closet? With Gwynnie Bee, you can rent a piece for a special event like a wedding or a new job, wear it a few times, and return it to get different pieces!  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 quite a few items I have bought over the years from Gwynnie Bee that I have bought for less than $10! The potential savings are rather impressive!

The savings are phenomenal, but I also love the convenience. With Omicron and the flu raging through the country, I have been isolating through the holiday season to keep myself and my at-risk loved ones safe. Even though I am triple vaxed and always masked, I don't want or need to go to the mall.  I can simply have a mini fashion show in my own home-- all thanks to a service like Gwynnie Bee!  What are you waiting for-- especially with 50% off for your first month! This month's selections were pretty dang cute-- 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 $186.50, which is $91.50 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!
