Gwynnie Bee: October 2016

My second month of Gwynnie Bee was a bit of a revolving door (for a reminder on what Gwynnie Bee is see here or here). My fault really,  as I was just guessing at sizes and kept getting this that did not fit. SO, not shocking.  I would say that precision is not my strong suit,  but really it is often patience. In this case, I could not find the tape measure so I just guessed. Multiple times. However, after getting the second shipment of clothes that were not quite right I found the damn tape measure took my damn measurements.

Here they are:

Bust: 46 1/2 in
Waist: 43-45 in

Hips: 51-53 in

** Variability b/c just a wee little movement of the measure matters on my body

And, wudda ya know- It worked.

 All this sizing shenanigans aside,  GB has a great section for finding your shape and each piece does have size charting.

Here’s a sample of the clothes that I received but they did not fit quite right. I was not able to snap pics of me in these pieces as I wanted to return then ASAP to get something that I could use and wear.

I loved this tunic dress, but the one I received was too small. It’s still in my virtual closet so maybe I will get it again. The colors are great for fall.

These jeans were too big and too long

This top came too small and in general the colors were not great IMO.

I then received these two pieces and really liked them both. I had planned to wear the black top on a trip to Charleston to see my family but a hurricane happened. I ended up sending that piece back to try something different as I did not have anything planned that it would be appropriate for. But I really liked it!

I also liked the V corset for something fun and different but again no upcoming events to wear it to. But it was cute.

This dress was the next piece I received and I loved it. I loved the neutral color combination. When I initially put it on it felt a little big and frumpy. It just needed some belting love. I wore this several times to work and out and about but did not end up keeping it. I really want to use this service to try new styles so I (reluctantly) sent it back.

This geometric beauty was the other winner for this month. It is brighter than the tones I usually gravitate to but I got several nice compliments on this dress. I had a lot of fun wearing this and wore it on two occasions- both work related.

I am continuing to really enjoy using Gwynnie Bee to add variety to my outfits and try new styles. A whole lot of fun!!
