This transitional weather has thrown me for a loop. We’re hovering at 20 degrees above normal this week, so this dress from my Gwynnie Bee subscription was perfect – plus, it’s in my favorite shade of blue. (Gwynnie Bee is a clothing subscription service for sizes 10-32, and where I get 90% of my clothing. Wear, return, repeat. Learn more and see my outfits here.)

I know I talk about Gwynnie Bee a lot. But this dress is a prime example of why I’m such a fan. Stick with me here.
I’m tired of looking in my closet and seeing items that I bought and wore once, only to decide that I didn’t like it enough to wear it again. The past couple of months I’ve been staring at my closet at a rack full of items that I bought because they simply fit, or were inexpensive, or both. As a result, I haven’t been buying much lately. Or if I DO buy something and put it on and have any feelings of “well, this is good enough,” it goes back immediately.
So while I work on saving my clothing purchases on items that actually feel special or worth wearing more than once (like my default dress), my wardrobe is nearly all Gwynnie Bee. I get a rotating closet of items without ever having buyers remorse. I even have a special section of my closet just for my GB items, and I’ve noticed I don’t really touch the rest of my closet much.
While I liked this dress, it didn’t stand out as something I needed in my closet forever. So after I wore it, I just threw it back in the prepaid package, requested a pickup online with the postal service, and threw it on my front porch. They picked it up and my next item is already on its way to me. Huzzah!
