What's Inside This Box

Printed Blouse with Tie Neck in Purrfect Stripe by Eloquii, Size 22 — Cost to Keep $23.50

 

You might not be aware, but I am a huge fan of the Eloquii brand. They are one of the best plus-size brands out there because their styles have a retro yet extremely modern vibe, the cuts and styles are unique but complementary, and they are not afraid of bold prints and materials. I have so many treasured Eloquii pieces, most scored during their mega winter sales. Their fall and winter pieces are the most extravagant-- so many sequins, faux furs, and animal prints! This top is one I have eyeballed on their site at various times but never ordered. I figured now was the time to give it a whirl. I sent it back, but I truly regret doing so because this top was terribly cute! I didn't realize how low the price tag was and I could have applied some of my member points-- oh, fiddlesticks! I had been initially unsure how I felt about the colors featured on this blouse. The tiger/zebra print is like a lavender/baby pink and burgundy/brown color. I would have preferred it to be black and baby pink or black and lavender, but I still loved this top! I paired this adorable top with a faux leather mini skirt, metallic booties, and my all-time favorite earrings from RebsRainbowHaus! I would definitely wear this out and about on a Saturday night to see a band play or go to a drag show, but this would be fantastic for work too. This would look great with dress pants and a blazer or with a pencil skirt and cardigan. It adds such a touch of glamour and sass to any ensemble!

Cowl Neck Plaid Dress by Sandra Darren, Size 2x — Cost to Keep $29.50

 

I don't recall closeting this piece, but I ain't mad about it! This dress makes me think of the early 60s due to the plaid, but it is more modern due to the length. I am also getting Audrey from Twin Peaks vibes-- I did a huge disservice not wearing this dress with saddle shoes! The material itself has ample stretch is warm, but the material isn't so thick that you can't layer a cardigan over top or turtleneck underneath. I opted to amp up the vintage-inspired vibes with my yellow flower power acrylic earrings and white Mary Janes from Torrid. I would complete this look with opaque black tights and either a faux fur leopard print coat or pleather biker jacket. This could easily be worn out for Sunday brunch, at the office, or for a family dinner. This could be a go-to dress for the fall and winter holiday months.

Cuff Detail Lime Cardigan by Skies Are Blue, Size 3x — Cost to Keep $37.50

 

This sweater truly takes me back. It makes me think of going through rounders at DEB and Fashion Bug, shopping with my mama in the late 80s and early 90s. I feel like these varsity/prep style sweaters were all the rage during that era! My mom had a v-neck white pullover that had similar sleeve details, but navy and mauve, and it was at the neckline as well. Once we were the same size, I borrowed that top often! I don't think mom would want this version though since it is a bright neon yellow. I, however, love the bright color! The sweater is ultra-comfortable and can be worn buttoned or layered over a band t-shirt and jeans or a floral or animal print shirt dress and tights. I opted to style the cardigan buttoned up with my faux leather skirt, Divine earrings from patent leather loafers from my latest ShoeDazzle review.

Verdict

This month's Gwynnie Bee selections are such a mood booster during our grey winter.  How can you not feel happier in a bright yellow sweater or dusty pink and maroon animal print top? Every piece this month was a great success! I am excited I got to try that Gwynnie Bee top but hoping to score it through the site at some point-- it is so perfect! I love being able to use a rental service like Gwynnie Bee. It gives me the opportunity to try a variety of brands and styles I might have not been able to otherwise. Eloquii is a brand I found through Gwynnie Bee almost five years ago for my very first review.   If you fall madly in love with an item, like I did that first dress, you have the option to buy it! The best part of being able to buy pieces from Gwynnie Bee is all the previously worn pieces are sold at a discount. You also accrue points that can be used as a $5, $10, or $15 discount! They also offer a variety of additional sales on at home items too! I also absolutely love their Outlet-- you can score some unreal deals on previously rented pieces as well! 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 amazing!

Your girl misses the mall, but it will be a long while before I step in one. Rather than packing up my masks and hand sanitizers to motor over to a store to try on a pile of clothing, I can simply have the mall mailed to me thanks to Gwynnie Bee! What are you waiting for-- especially with 50% off for your first month! This month's selections were absolutely adorable-- 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.
