This is what I call a twirly whirl dress (that’s the technical term, of course). I don’t gravitate towards mint, but I do love a good fit & flare dress and a v-neck. So I added this dress from City Chic to my Gwynnie Bee closet. I fell in love. #ImFeelingMyself

I’m all about variety in my wardrobe, and that’s why I’ve been a Gwynnie Bee member for over 3 years. 90% of the time when someone says they like my outfit, I tell them that I don’t own it. And then they give me a puzzled look. Unless it’s a friend – then they just say, “I like that outfit. Gwynnie Bee?” Yep. Broken record. Don’t believe me? Check out all 200+ of my GB outfits here. And those are only the ones I took photos in!
Fit notes: I’m 5’10 and wearing the size XXL/24. This has zero stretch, and for that reason, I didn’t keep it permanently. The waist is extremely tight and the skirt is very short in the back. Not that it stopped me from wearing it – ha! The skirt had tulle sewn into the hem of the dress lining which helped add extra flare at the bottom.
Normally I would add a nude pump to a color like this, but I was looking for any excuse to wear these old turquoise pumps of mine. So it’s a little matchy-matchy, but I loved the result! This was a great 1-wear dress since the fit wasn’t quite right. Threw it back into the prepaid Gwynnie Bee return bag and had something else sent to me.
