Dress: Maggy London c/o Gwynnie Bee
Belt: Lauren Ralph Lauren
Bracelet: c/o In Pink
Shoes: Nine West (similar)

If you follow me on Instagram you saw that my latest Gwynnie Bee box arrived. It was so fun to open and see fabulous fall colors, even more fun to try on and love all the pieces on me! This dress isn't something I would usually try, I would think it would look too fancy for the office and make my shoulders look even bigger than they are. However I put it on, added my own belt (has a simple elasticized waist that would look nice alone but I'm a belt gal), and my husband walked in the room and said I looked like a bombshell. I'll take that!

This is one of the best parts of Gwynnie Bee – it lets you get out of a fashion rut without commitment (you can read more about Gwynnie Bee here). In fact, all three items in my latest box from them are things I would never usually consider in a store, but in fact like on me.

Note: I do get a commission for each person who signs up for Gwynnie Bee and mentions me, but I have chosen to partner with them because I truly believe in the company, the service they provide, and their concern for their customers' happiness and satisfaction.

    Thank you so much for introducing me to Gwynnie Bee! Once I finally pulle the trigger, my first package was shipped the next day (a Friday) and I received it on Monday. The dress I wore the next day garnered dozens of compliments and it was something I might not have chosen to purchase. Hooray!

    You look awesome in this blue dress, by the way. Super pretty!

    I took advantage of your offer and it did not take Gwynnie Bee long to send me my first shipment! I have that dress and can’t wait to wear it! I did end up sending a couple things back (not flattering) but that’s the beauty of it!

      Exactly; I am on my third box and not all I have received are winners… For me, but they may be for another. And if I don’t like, I can send back guilt-free! 🙂

    Your husband is totally right, you look like a bombshell. The dress fits you beautifully and the color brings out the nice tone of your skin. This is one of my faves .

  10. September 17, 2012 / 6:49 pm

    Great choice! This color is beautiful on you and I love the draped neckline. I too am a belt girl. I didn’t start wearing them until last year and now I don’t feel dressed without one!

    As DeCaprio’s Howard Hughes said to Jean Harlow in the movie The Aviator, “Boy, you are just hitting on all six cylinders, aren’t you?” It fits you today, Allie.

    That was an airplane, not auto reference, BTW. Being an airplane nut that I am, I fully appreciated the complement. The airplane reference fits you today too – streamlined, sleek, built for speed, a Blue Angel (Blue Angels are the Navy’s Demo Flight Team).

    WANT THIS. WAAAAAAANT. You look fab, Allie, and this may sound strange, but I would as well. The draping, the color, oh yeah, this is my thing. I’m thoroughly bummed that Gwynnie Bee doesn’t ship to Canada right now, but I’ve got to give them kudos, because their response time was lightning fast.
    Oh, did I mention I really want this dress?

    Va-Va-Vooooom! Sassy & minxy. And I love the fact that you know it too from that wicked glint in your eye. Definitely a date night special…

    Wowza!! Is there anything you don’t look good in??

  17. September 17, 2012 / 2:27 pm

    You are knocking it out of the park lately! I love this look!

    When I saw the cropped picture in my bloglovin list, I thought, wow, what a great color on her. Then I clicked over to the full pic- um, wow, what a great dress on you! Do your hubs a favor- plan a date night with him and wear that gorgeous dress!

    Fantastic dress! The color is beautiful on you.

    Every time you write about Gwynnie Bee and I see you in their clothes, you are starting to seal the coffin on my bank account. My wardrobe screams for Gwynnie Bee clothes.
