I have to admit, February was a fun month in terms of the styles I tried and reviewed at Gwynnie Bee. I also got my sexy on. Yassss!
There are times I get bummed because some styles don't fit and because I am at the end of the size range, there are times I can't size up. Or I feel bummed when I can't try certain styles that other girls there get to try because it doesn't come in my size. But Emilia, who is part of the GB team that heads the Fit Reviewer program, always advocates for me in terms of giving me styles that she knows will look great on me, even when I think they won't! That alone helps me to not take these things too personally.
She tries to give me as many styles as she can because she wants me to know that I am just as important and worthy as the other girls when it comes to fashion and giving my reviews. She tells me all the time how positively my reviews are received. And that alone means a lot. It's really nice to work with someone who appreciates you and is supportive. Kelly Augustine and the entire GB team are so supportive but Emilia especially has a soft place in my heart for unknowingly becoming my advocate and support system.
As I have been doing monthly this year, 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'm a little behind again on February's picks (sorry!) so forgive me!
As always, check out my reviews on the GB site 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'm going to kick this off with some sexy styles I tried that had me LIVING! This City Chic Cross Hatch Neck Dress is gorgeous. From the color (I'm a sucker for blue) to the details and then it has pockets!!! I gave this baby 5 hearts. It's available on the site now here.
Now this one is my ultimate favorite because I am very into sportswear and so happy that the varsity trend is back this spring. This dress is part of the upcoming capsule collection by designer Amanda Uprichard exclusively for Gwynnie Bee.
The Game Day Dress in Black is sooooo cute! I would wear this with my Adidas and a hoodie on one day and some flats and a denim jacket on another. Or by itself with some sandals in the warmer months. It has pockets (yes!) and a tie belt. The only drawback for me is that the fabric has no stretch but I am wearing a 4X here comfortably. The Amanda Uprichard collection will launch on March 14, 2017.
I tried all 5 pieces from the collection (3 dresses and 2 tops) and the dresses were my favorites. There's a print maxi that I loved and a bold print sheath dress that made me feel like I was wearing a watercolor painting. And the collection will be available in up to size 5X. Definitely worth checking out when it launches.
My two closet picks of the month are:
Melissa McCarthy Seven7 Cocoon Sweater in Green
Cherry Velvet Doris Dress in Black Cherry Dots
