Some of my favorite Gwynnie Bee Styles - December 2016

"Life always begins with one step outside of your comfort zone." ~ Shannon L. Alder

For almost a year now, I have been working as a First Fit Reviewer for Gwynnie Bee. I basically act as a fit model for new styles and provide honest reviews on the styles I try, in order to help other women find styles at GB that will work for them.


I take my job seriously. Shopping is a challenge for me because I have large upper arms, a small waist, wide hips and large calves. I also tend to be between a petite and average length in pants - I'm 5'7" and sometimes pants are either too long or too short. I'm also a size 26/28 and you don't see many of us represented on websites and campaigns. So I love being able to try things on at Gwynnie Bee and offer my honest opinion on the fit.


Some pieces are definitely not my style and I have tried things I thought I would never wear, like a jumpsuit, a mini dress and a body con dress. This job has opened my eyes to the fashion out there and has helped me get out of my comfort zone. My style has evolved and is now more about what suits my personality and less about my own hang-ups that feed my fear to try new styles.


So every month, I will be giving all of you a sneak peek as to what's to come the following month that are my favorite styles. I also will be sharing some styles that are on the site that I love. As always, check out my reviews for a more detailed description of my fit experience and if you have any questions, you can always reach out to me on Facebook and Instagram.

I tried this Melissa McCarthy Seven7 Space Dyed Asymmetrical Cardigan yesterday and am in love with it so much!


I'm wearing a size 4X and it fits so well! I love the neckline and the thumb holes! This will be launching on the site on January 10, 2017. 


This Kiyonna Foxfire Dress in Purple was a style I did not think I could pull off. But I was so wrong. I love it so much. I definitely felt sexy but chic in this number. I am wearing a 4. This will launch on January 3, 2017.


Another win from Melissa McCarthy Seven7! This Kiss Stain Pintuck Blouse is amazing. I love that you can tie it in the front or back. I'm wearing a 4X. I'm definitely closeting this and buying it. This will also launch on the GB site on January 3, 2017. 


With City Chic, I can fit into their XXL (24) in quite a few of their styles, which makes me sooo happy! I love the brand. This Office Fun Skater Dress is made from this stretch knit fabric that feels amazing. I love the pinstripe print too. Unsure about its launch date but it will be in the next week or so.

My two closet picks for the month are:

I'm wearing a 3X (!) and this cape blazer is simply fabulous. This was my first time wearing a cape style (another venture outside my comfort zone) and I am sold!



I love the bow on this (you can tie however you want - I love bows, lol) and I just love how cute it is. I'm wearing an XXL (24).
