While the Gwynnie Bee New Arrivals are fun, like fashion Christmas each week, I like to occasionally go back to classics that they offer. My sister and a couple of my friends have borrowed this Kiyonna dress from Gwynnie Bee in different colors and they have all looked fantastic in it. Tall, short, pear shaped, apple shaped, all sizes. I just had to try it out for myself and found it to be pretty magical for me as well. The wrinkles fell out by time I got to the office.  It's a light jersey with a silky feel that doesn't cling or feel heavy in the summer heat. I originally was going to wear it with leopard shoes but decided to amp up the pretty watermelon hue with my green ECCO heels. And I always love an opportunity to wear these fantastic earrings!

If you haven't tried Gwynnie Bee yet and are interested (like Netflix for fashion sizes 10 and up), use this link and you can get a free 30-day trial of the program.  I'm really loving Gwynnie Bee this summer, because I always have a great arsenal of summer dresses for work, weekends, weddings and more without breaking the bank.  As I previously mentioned, they are adding to their selection weekly, so there's always something new!

Note: I do receive a commission for each person who signs up for Gwynnie Bee past their 30-day trial and mentions me, my blog or uses my custom URL, but I promote the company because I really believe in, use, and love it and the people who run it!

    I wouldn’t have picked that dress out, but on you it looks great! With such rave reviews I went and added it to my GwynnieBee closet!

    I’m such a fan of wrap dresses, and while I pretty much detest high-low hemlines, I really like this dress. The color is fantastic on you, and I really like how you paired it with the green!

    I always say a wrap dress works on every woman and figure. So flattering and gorgeous, Alison!
    Love this look and your shoes are adorable too.

    your rack looks fantastic in this dress.

    is that weird to say to strangers on the internet?

      Not really, since I have shared bra fittings and bikinis and all that already! Fantasie bras FTW!

      Hahaha, I was thinking the same thing when I saw the pictures – good-fitting bras are the BEST.

    I love this! Watermelon is pretty good too!
    But seriously, it does look watermelon-y but in a really awesome way! Seedless obviously…

    This may have replaced the coral ann taylor skirt/matching top as my favourite outfit. Love the colour!

    SO…. I feel kind of like a creep, but you look so lovely I feel pervy. The color makes you glow! It wraps your figure so prettily! You look so happy in it.

    Yum, so pretty! I could take these 4 colors (including your hair and skin tones) and be inspired to decorate and theme a whole room.

    I adore this color on you – us fair skinned brunettes do so well in it! The fit of the dress is great, too!

    You look beautiful! I love that color and it looks amazing with the green accessories.
