Gwynnie Bee

At Allison Gary's recommendation from Wardrobe Oxygen, I'm doing a month's free trial of Gwynnie Bee.  Gwynnie Bee is "clothing without commitment" a subscription service where you borrow clothes !

Allison and other fashion bloggers like Sue at The Working Closet have inspired me to look good no matter what my size and to get dressed IN AN OUTFIT (yoga pants and a shirt don't count) every day.  There's no doubt that I need to lose weight and exercise regularly, but being overweight is no reason to give up on looking good.  I could write about this topic for days and days, but I'll stop here.

I spent some time today on the Gwynnie Bee website picking out some things, and then a stylist contacted me for a phone call where she made some additional suggestions based on things I liked.  At this time, Gwynnie Bee only carries sizes 10-26 and the stylist was knowledgeable about the different cuts from the various designers so it took some guesswork out of it for me.

Now I've got to run.  I'm headed out to run a few errands and I want to pack a healthy lunch to take with me so I'm not tempted to stop for fast food along the way.

Oh how exciting! I hope you love Gwynnie Bee as much as I do. Their customer service is amazing, so if you feel things aren't right, let them know. They have removed items from the collection that get poor reviews, can suggest alternatives, and new boxes come lightening fast to your house. Have fun!!!!

Yoga pants are only a half step up from sweat pants. Both sit solidly on the "unacceptable to wear except for bedtime and gardening" list. You always look great out, so I can't wait to see what they cook up for you!
