I’m back with more Gwynnie Bee clothes to show off what I’ve been wearing lately. I wrote all about Gwynnie Bee two weeks ago and here are the most recent things they’ve sent me. I’m still glad I decided to sign up and it has really encouraged me to think more about my clothes, look at my closet differently, and branch out a little more in terms of my “style.” On Sunday I actually lamented to my roommate that I was depressed about not having new GB clothes to wear and she joked “Oh no, you’ll have to wear clothes you already own!” Oops!
Anyway, with just a little more commentary here is another collection of terrible OOTD selfies. One of these days (aka when I prove to myself I will actually use it) I’m going to get a camera that I can use a remote with and then I’ll say goodbye to cellphone outfit selfies. Or just like with everything else I say I’m going to do I’ll get distracted by something shiny and move on to the next new thing. Stay tuned.
I thought this dress would be nice for a work event I have coming up but it was really too tight to look nice (or professional) on me.
You’ll remember I tried a similar dress before but this one should have been okay because the back is solid, not ruched like the front so it might have been really flattering. The sleeves were really pretty and I love the neckline. I’m guessing the next bigger size would have been a better fit. This one had to go back right away.
This dress could have been really fun but unfortunately the blue color block ended right where my leg begins giving it a leotard kind of look:
Combining that with the type of material used for this dress, I felt like I was wearing a scuba suit. I almost never wear patterns so I was nervous about this dress and I was right to be. Boo.
On to the good ones:
I loved this dress – so comfy, very professional. I got a lot of compliments on it at work too.
Looking at the pictures I can see some spanx and the right necklace might have made this dress a real winner. The colors and lines are super flattering. I wore it with my little black cardigan you see in every picture of me ever which is why I took it off for these pictures.
And an example of why I stand the way I do. Because this pose (the one I lean toward when I pose for outfit pictures) changes the way this dress looks:
It’s not a major change but it does make a difference and I wanted to be a little more upfront about how I look in these clothes.
This skirt was so pretty and really comfortable but…too big.
I wish I had guessed my sizing better. In this brand the exact same size in a dress is too small (see the first dress in this post) but the skirt was falling off. Did you know you could get plumbers butt in a skirt? I didn’t! It was a shame because this skirt has a lot of potential.
This round’s clear winners:
How cute is this one? I’m thinking I should do an actual photo shoot with this dress!
It’s not a work dress so I haven’t actually worn it yet because I’m trying to imagine the best occasion for such a thing. Maybe I should just get dolled up and do my grocery shopping in it!
And, last one, another dress I almost bought because it was so awesome:
Like I said above, I never wear patterns so this was a step outside my comfort zone that I feel totally paid off. I love the cut, but ultimately didn’t buy it because it’s such a distinct piece. Yes it would be easy to come up with different ways to accessorize it but I felt like it would be such an obvious repeat every time I wore it. Not that I have anything against repeating outfits for every day wear but I feel better repeating the same pair of solid black pants or the same solid teal shirt because they don’t stand out as much. Does that make sense?
