It took some time for me to decide to try GwynieBee – the prices, while reasonable, aren’t cheap, and I’m a picky you know what when it comes to clothes. Used doesn’t bother me – I love vintage after all, but I wasn’t sure about the idea of rented.
For those who don’t know, Gwynnie Bee is sort of like Netflix for clothing. Choose your plan, make your list, and they send you the next item on your list. Return it when you’re done to get your next item.
Much like Netflix, it has some challenges. I wanted a particular top and jacket at the same time. Unfortunately, you don’t get to prioritize your selections, so you might not get things in the order you list them. Note, you have to have at least 6 items in your closet before they’ll ship anything.
In just a few days, a sturdy box arrived in the mail. The first package comes with a bunch of printed materials, subsequent packages don’t. Clothing is wrapped in deep purple tissue, and let me tell you , I want the name of their dry cleaner. A care card is neatly pinned to each item, and each comes with its own return bag.
Talk about easy! It’s pre-labeled and postage-paid. Just pack it, seal it and get it to the Post Office somehow. Bonus, if you go online and note that you’re returning the item, they’ll prep your next item so it ships out to you as soon as the return arrives.
So far, we’re two-for-two. If the free trial month continues like this, I’ll be subscribing. What a great way to extend your wardrobe!
Sure, there are a few negative comments online – folks have gotten the wrong item, or the one they got was not in great shape. I’ll cross those bridges when I get to them, but from what I’m seeing, it looks like Gwynnie Bee’s customer service is quick to solve problems.
