What's Inside This Box

Painted Leopard Macademia Mallory Dress by Leota, Size 3x — Cost to Keep $59.50

 

One can't go wrong with leopard print nor the Leota brand, so I was eager to see this in this month's selections. If I were still in the office, I definitely would have worn this to work a few times, but would have eventually returned the dress. The fabric is great; I like the print. You may not be able to tell from my pictures, but the leopard print has shades of mustard, sienna, rust, and even some purple. The dress is incredibly comfortable to wear and fits wonderfully, but I am not feeling the cowl neck on this one. I did simple styling and paired this dress with my trusty Torrid white Mary Janes. This would be great to wear in the fall with tights and some chunky high heels.

Lip Print Ivory Sweater by Andree by Unit, Size 3x — Cost to Keep $37.50

 

Orange, yellow, and pink lip prints-- of course, I closeted this sweater! I got this sweater in a 3x, it fits great, but I still find the length a bit awkward? Is it me, or do you think this would look better hitting at the waist and not below? The puff sleeves on this aren't my favorite and I almost wish the knit had more lip prints on it or possibly more lip prints but in a smaller size. The sweater is not too thin or thick, which makes it ideal for transitional spring weather. Our mornings have been in the 40s and 50s, so this is fantastic especially if layering over a dress. I must say, I don't hate this sweater, but I am not hopelessly in love with it either. Though I am a bit indifferent, I know this sweater will make a lot of you swoon! I paired this piece with faux denim leggings from an upcoming Dia & Co review as well as baby pink Torrid Mary Janes.

Warped Zebra Eliza Dress by Leota, Size 2x — Cost to Keep $23.50, Purchased for $11.50

 

If you weren't aware, my favorite color is orange and I am a sucker for anything animal print. That being said, I DID fall in love with this Leota dress. Yes, I managed to get two animal print dresses from Gwynnie Bee in one month! The fabric has ample stretch, the fit is superb, and did I happen to mention-- IT HAS POCKETS?! Oh, yes and deep, perfectly placed pockets to boot! When I saw that the dress was down to $23.50 and I had discounts from my Gwynnie Bee rewards that were able to lower this beauty to a mere $11.50, I had to make it mine! The price was just too nice! I opted to add some funk by styling this dress with gigantic acrylic flower power earrings and my go-to Torrid Mary Janes. I felt pretty, pretty cute, yinz! This will also look fantastic in the fall styled with a bulky cardigan, tights, and ankle booties. We love a versatile and affordable dress!

Verdict

This month's Gwynnie Bee selections were all warm-toned and delightful. My obvious favorite is the zebra print Leota dress. Getting a quality dress from a brand like Leota at such a fantastic price is one reason I love Gwynnie Bee! There are just too many savings to be had! With every purchase, closeted item, and returned pieces, you accrue member points that can be used to purchase items! These points can add up to either $5, $10, or a $15 discount! Gwynnie Bee also offers a variety of additional sales on at home items too! I bring this up to my friends that are in need of new clothes going back to the office or if they are in between sizes. The ability to get such good deals, but also being able to rent items without a commitment is fantastic. In addition, Gwynnie Bee has an outlet that members have access to where you can get even further discounted pre- worn items. I have managed to find pieces by Eloquii and others for less than $15-- incredible!

A service like Gwynnie Bee is wonderful for someone like me that works from home and has slowly been getting out more for events. I have been keeping an incredibly low profile during the pandemic to protect vulnerable family members and myself. I simply don't frequent malls like I did two years ago. Don't get me wrong-- I  miss spending an afternoon window shopping with friends, but with a service like Gwynnie Bee I have the stores delivered right to my front door! No need for me to grab a few masks and sanitizers-- I have the ability to have my own mini fashion show each time a box is delivered to my home!

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. The three items total up to $120.50, which is $25.50 less than my monthly plan.  Now, imagine the greater value had I sent these pieces back sooner and received additional pieces! Wow!
