Going to be a total nerd and admit that when I put this dress on, I did a happy dance. The easy cut and beautiful print make this one of my favorite Gwynnie Bee dresses EVER. That's saying a lot as someone who has been a GB subscriber for 4 years and has tried hundreds of their garments!

Quick primer for those who aren't familiar with Gwynnie Bee: GB is a monthly subscription service for clothing sizes 10-32. You keep a virtual closet, and they send you items to wear. You wear them for however long you want, then send them back for more items! The subscription includes unlimited shipping and exchanges, as well as dry cleaning. You can see a very large gallery of my Gwynnie Bee outfits here.
Hemant & Nandita is an Indian design duo and their styles are available in plus sizes exclusively at Gwynnie Bee. I love wearing something that feels a little extra special. As a GB member I have the option to purchase this dress, which is tempting since it's not available for purchase anywhere else and I'd like to wear it several times. For now though, I'm going to just keep it out as part of my subscription. I'm actively working on buying fewer items (I'm out of closet space!) and utilizing my GB subscription for the rotating styles.
This dress something I would assume is too print-heavy for my body, and much more boho than I would usually wear. The beauty of GB is being able to try things without being stuck with them forever, only to end up in a donation box a few months later.
Interested in trying Gwynnie Bee? You can get a 30-day free trial here! Don't like it? Simply cancel your subscription before the 30 days is over and send any remaining garments back to them. Easy peasy.
