What I Wore: Jete via Gwynnie Bee

As you know, I have been a subscriber to Gwynnie Bee for quite a while.  I love it as a means to try new brands, test sizing and fit, and see garments close-up that I might not otherwise have the opportunity to try.  It also gives me more ways of styling looks to show all of you since I don't actually have to buy all the clothes.  (Although, sometimes I love a piece so much that I do buy it from Gwynnie Bee at a discounted price!)

Read on for my review of this tank dress....

Jete is a Gwynnie Bee exclusive brand.  GB offers a few of these house brands that I have talked about on the blog before, like Flor, Triste, Postcards, and Spruce and Sage.  This tank dress is made from the typical polyester/spandex.  This means it is pretty comfortable and definitely stretchy.  I am wearing this dress in a 3X and find the sizing to be adequate at the bust and generous through the rest of the body.  This is very hard to come by since my hips are a size bigger than my bust.

I love the vibrant purple and orange pattern.  It is really fun and bright in person, always a plus in my book!  I added an orange chain necklace that matched the orange veins in the dress.  This also added more color and texture up around my face where I like the attention to be drawn.  So as not to add more layers and accessories that compete with the dress, I chose nude wedges and a light green anorak jacket.  These both provide a more casual tone to the look, while the jacket breaks up the pattern a bit.  The dress is comfortable and loose, so I didn't want to add a belt this time.

The anorak jacket is still on trend this year, so there are a lot of different styles to choose from.  I bought this one from Lane Bryant right before spring.  It has a drawstring waist for a peplum look and a hood, which is necessary in the often rainy Pacific Northwest.  The material is thinner and stretchy, so the comfort level is high.  The light green hue acts as a neutral which allows it to go with pretty much anything.  If this look appeals to you, keep your eye on similar jackets and snatch them up when you can.  I recently bought the Ava & Viv one from Target and hope it arrives before my road trip!

    1. Thank you! I was surprised at how much I liked it. And usually shift style dresses are cut so much smaller through the hips that they just don't fit me. I really loved the vibrant colors and the fit so much in this one. :-)
