Gwynnie Bee – March 2016

Happy Tuesday to you! I want to start this post with a little note – I have not been compensated for my opinion by the Gwynnie Bee company, I pay for my monthly service.  Although if anyone from Gywnnie Bee is reading this and wants me to write for my service or a discount I am so willing to trade 🙂

OK with that out of the way let’s get on to the fun stuff! I have been using a rental service for the last year to augment my capsule wardrobe.  It allows me to keep my basics and standards in tact, while still stretching out into new trends and colors without the hassle of having to buy everything and realize it doesn’t always work.  The awesomeness of Gwynnie Bee for me at least, is it caters to curvy girls – sizes 10-32!

How does it work? 

1. You sign up for their service – basically how many pieces you want to rent at a time, for what price. I rent 3 with an extra item for life (awesome right) for $79 a month. 

2. Log into your closet and start adding pieces you want to try – they ask you to keep a minimum of 25 items at any time to keep you in a good rotation (it’s not hard I have almost 200 closeted at the moment)

3. Wait for a delivery – usually with in a week or so you should have your first box – wear and enjoy.  Once you worn a piece or decide you don’t really like it to start with, you place it in your little blue bag, and send it back – postage is paid for.  If you find a piece you just can’t live without, you have the option of keeping it for good at a deeply discounted price.  

The true beauty of this is the rotation of clothing, if your good about it, you can keep the cycle going so you always have something new coming, to give an example in just under a year I have had 140 items delivered to me with prices ranging from $50 – $150 (new) that I have worn and returned (some purchased) and really enjoyed.

I have to tell you I get really excited when my new box arrives, the inside is always wrapped in purple tissue paper with the logo sticker. 

  
Once I open my box I immediately try on all the items and decide if I like them or if I want to send them back.

  
The items I want to keep get added into my wardrobe rotation, like these two awesome dresses.


And the ones I don’t want or what I’ve worn recently go back into the little blue bag and shipped back.  Once received I know a new order will be sent out shortly. 

Honestly, I think it’s the best thing that’s happened to me and my shopping habits recently – it keeps me from impulse buying a new trend that may or may not work with my body type, it allows me to keep my standard wardrobe nice, tight and timeless, and it still allows me to branch out and try new things. I mean who knew I loved to wear dresses so much?

Here’s a few outfits from February/March that I’ve adored
