My Gwynnie Bee closet items.  Just looking at this makes think of Grease 2 – I’ll be your girl for all seasons…


Citron Kimono in Mixed Print (cost to buy $43.00):  Crepe kimono jacket with drapey open-front design and long sleeves, no stretch, colorblock design with abstract print, unlined.  Featuring a brilliant array of oranges and blues, this lovely light layer floats over any monochrome outfit for instant style.


This is the second Citron kimono/jacket that I’ve received from my Gwynnie Bee closet.  It’s not terrible, but it’s not great either.  I don’t know if it’s me or the kimonos that are misshapen, but something is just not working.  I think would have liked this more with a dolman sleeve rather than the full sleeve.


Lucie Lu Thea Tunic in Aztec (cost to buy $27.00):  Ponte-knit tunic top with scoop neck and elbow-length sleeves, stretchy shape with flowy fit, flared hem, allover Aztec print with embossed texture.  A desert-inspired multicolor print ensures ample pairing opportunities, from basic jeggings to dressy black pants.


This looked better when it was worn.  It is WAY out of my norm; I’m a simple patterns/solids type of girl.  I liked the fit, but the ponte knit was heavy.  With my current weather, I would have been stewing in this top.  Maybe I’ll add it to my closet with a hold for fall.

BB Dakota Margot Capelet (cost to buy $22.50):  Wool capelet with one-button closure and poncho sleeves, stretch-knit fabric, shawl-like collar, allover plaid print, fully lined.  Our latest obsession is part outerwear, part trend essential. Softly tailored in a wool blend, the BB Dakota Margot Capelet is a feminine take on menswear.  Layer over a monochrome outfit for instant allure.

I really liked this capelet.  Several GB members commented that the ones they received showed a lot of pilling and looked well worn. This piece did not show a large amount of wear, but I could see some minor pilling.  I am going to add this back for fall/winter.

Gwynnie Bee is showing me that I don’t know myself as well as I thought.  I’ve picked items that were out of my comfort zone and they’ve looked good, while pieces that I would try-on or buy look horrible on me.  It makes me happy that Gwynnie Bee is a clothing rental service because I would have been really upset if I puchased this group of clothing.  What did you think of my fashion choices?  Share your thoughts with a comment below.
