{Brand Spotlight} Gwynnie Bee Is Still Serving It!

I partnered with Gwynnie Bee way back when they were first really hitting the scene (my previous posts).  And it had been a while since I had actually logged into my account on their site but when I recently did, I was pleasantly, yet not really surprised.

And the fact that I have gotten over 7,300 clicks on this post from 2011 (and continue to get clicks almost daily) because women are always searching for "plus size stitchfix" tells me that what they are doing is really wanted by plus size woman. So, I am glad to see that they have really taken the plus size rental fashion ball and ran with it in such a great way and are constantly growing.

In case you are not familiar, Gwynnie Bee is a monthly subscription service for sizes 10-32 (yes up to 32!!) that allows you to rent fashion pieces that will be delivered to you, free shipping to and fro, to keep as long as you want for a monthly fee.

So basically you can have an unlimited wardrobe for the price of a piece or two.

And the great part about it is that Gwynnie Bee stocks current, on trend fab clothing from the brands we know and love and from some brands that you may not be familiar with who offer fab plus size fashion.

One of the things that I have loved about Gwynnie Bee from day one is how easy it is to use.

Basically you sign in, add the pieces you love and want to rock to your virtual closet and they get shipped to you. And when you are done with the pieces, you drop them in the return packaging and ship them back.

Other features that I find of great value about Gwynnie Bee is that it gives you the freedom to try pieces that you may not have been on the fence about or a snag a special occasion piece that you know you will only wear once or twice (like this fab skirt I rocked that they still have in stock).

And say you (like me) missed out on getting a piece that you wanted like this fab Eloquii dress, Gwynnie Bee has it in a range of sizes.

And you don't have to worry about cleaning an item before sending it back because they dry clean the pieces when they are returned and if you just can't part with something, you can purchase it for up to 50% off the retail price!

Or say you love a brands aesthetic but your bank account does not love their prices, Gwynnie Bee has you covered there as well, stocking pieces from several of the more mid to high end plus size brands.

Here are a few pieces that are currently in stock that I LOVE!

{Fall Fashion} Get Thee Over My Knees Boots!

It's supposed to get back up to almost 80 degrees here in Chicago, so mother nature has some explaining to do because it is officially Fall in my mind.

And one of the best things about it for me fashion-wise it to be able to throw on the perfect get out and go "Fall Uniform", which consists of a pair of leggings, a long sweater and some boots.

One of my favorite boot styles is the over the knee style like the ones I rocked last year.


Of course this style can at times be a little tricky for we plus size girls because of the width of the boot shafts but thankfully brands are making more and more cute over the knee boots with wider calf areas*.

Here are 5 fab Fall Uniform perfect styles that I love...(click each for deets)








I love the colors and variety of textures (especially the animal print!!!).
What say you? Are you rocking over the knee boots?

*Notes: Most of these come in several colors and also some of these boots are not technically wide width but have a stretch back that can accommodate certain calf sizes, so always check the fine print.

{Travel} JetCurves in New York City #NYFW

I went back to my heart home NYC for a few days during NYFW mainly because I LOVE NYC in September but also to partake in a little fun.


This is a pic of the skyline over central park that I have to snap every time 
I stay at this particular place. I set my alarm so that I wont miss it.
