I like to feel good about myself, and it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone here. 😉 My hands and feet are well-manicured, and I do my best to wear outfits that flatter my body as it is now. I don’t take risks with my wardrobe often because I don’t like going back to a store to return things when I decide against them later.
My clothing and style choices have taken a hit over the last several months because I refuse to buy a larger size even though I’ve gained over 20 pounds since the fall. I’m working to take it off, and I’m not going to invest in bigger jeans, dresses or anything else. Over the last few weeks I have seen a bit of movement on the scale, and I’m determined to need smaller sizes, not bigger ones.
Buying fashionable, flattering clothes isn’t cheap when you’re plus-size. It would be easy to spend over a thousand dollars for a week’s worth of new digs so when I heard about GwynnieBee.com, I was intrigued. I’ve seen the name on twitter and Facebook many times, but I decided to try it when I learned that Skinny Emmie is a subscriber. She always looks fashionable and well-groomed, and when I learned that I could try a month completely risk-free, I signed up. (Thanks, Emmie!)
Later this week, I will received three pieces from GwynnieBee. In addition to cleaning, they pay for shipping both ways, and there’s no time limit on the garments so I can wear them as long as I want to. I have filled my virtual closet with shirts, dresses and cardigans by Kiyonna, Igigi and several other brands that I adore.
According to GwynnieBee, I should expect a package by the end of the week. If there’s something I don’t like, or something I want to return after wearing only once, I’ll place it in an envelope, notify them and wait for my next package! If you took a peek inside my virtual closet, you would find a tunic that I plan to wear with black leggings and a variety of styles and colors – even some lace!
I’m really looking forward to seeing what GwynnieBee can do to enhance my wardrobe. I ordered some new staple pieces from one of my favorite brands, Sealed with a Kiss, over the weekend too so there’s going to be a party in my mailbox! Now I just need to find a party to go to so I can wear something pretty.
Has anyone here tried GwynnieBee? If so, what are your thoughts? If not, would you try a service like it?
