What if you could have an ever changing wardrobe? Imagine having a few classic pieces and others that you could wear once or twice or even never and then send back with no commitment, no cleaning, and no worries! And if you love something you can buy it at discount.
Enter Gwynnie Bee, a clothing rental service for sizes 10-32. They offer a month free trial and then you can choose to subscribe to have one ($45), two ($69), or three ($95) items out at a time. There are options for more but these are the basics and most popular plans. It’s kind of like Netflix for clothes.
One thing that appeals to me about GB is that it will allow me to try styles that I may not typically wear. It also appeals to my (sort of) minimalist side.
Once you join you can look through their site and add items to your virtual closet. They encourage you to have at least 25 items in your closet and you can prioritize certain items. So far, I have received one prioritized item with each shipment (it helps if you have multiple items prioritized). You can keep the items as long as you want. I have kept most out 1-2 weeks, bought one item, and sent one directly back that I did not like on me. They also offer a styling service (included in the subscription price) but I have not taken advantage of this yet.
I do not have pictures of the first three items but the links are below if you are interested. The first is a printed shift dress that I loved but I did not keep it as it was pricey at $79. The second is an empire waist paisley shirt that I liked a lot but did not love. The third was a black asymmetrical hem top that was just way too big so it went back.
The next two items I received were a red and white floral peasant top and a pair of boot cut jeans.
City Chic Bootleg Jeans (I Really wish these had worked!!)
I loved the peasant top and it was my first Gwynnie Bee purchase for $38. I have already worn it a few times. Cute. Comfortable. Versatile. Check, check, check!
Pants: Athena Marie Bootcut Tummy Control Pants from Steinmart (I LOVE LOVE LOVE these pants and a steal for $29.99)
Bag: Purchased in Germany from an Individual Boutique
Shoes: Josef Seibel I bought these when I was living in Germany. Here is a similar style from Zappos
I really wanted to like the jeans (I REALLY need some jeans) but they were too long so back they went.
I am happy with Gwynnie Bee thus far. There have been more hits than misses and I am excited about my next month of revolving fashion!
