How much money do you spend on clothes?
I really admire bloggers and real-life people who shop only at thrift stores or put themselves on shopping freezes. That takes serious determination. I have a little bit of a shopping issue (more on this very soon), so I spend way more than I should. Blogging, for me, just made a bad situation worse. The more I got into style and fashion, the more I discovered things I had to have. However, for 2013 I am vowing to cut WAY back on my clothing budget.
How am I going to do that? Two words for you. Gwynnie Bee. I have posted several times about this New York-based company that specializes in Clothing Without Commitment for women size 10- 26, and I am still enamored with it. Hands down this is the best way for a fashionista to save major money.
Quick review of Gwynnie Bee and how it works. You request an invitation. They send you your log-in information. You browse, shop, and fill your virtual closet with any of the hundreds of clothing items they offer- dresses, tops, skirts, sweaters, jackets, with new arrivals coming in every two weeks. They send the clothes. You wear the clothes and when you are ready for new clothes, you simply send the old ones back (pre-labeled returns included). If you are familiar with Netflix, then you already know exactly how GB works.
Let's do a little math. Say you spend $100 on clothes each month. How many items do you get? One high quality? Ten $10 pieces? How often do you wear those items? Most woman are familiar with the cost per wear concept. If you're not, here's the formula:
cost of the item divided by the number of times you wear it
= the cost per wear.
With Gwynnie Bee's subscription service you can spend $100 a month and get 5 high quality brand items delivered to your home. Wear them as long as you want or send them back the very day you wear it. With a revolving shipping system, as soon as you tell GB you are sending back an item they start packing up your next one. There's very little down time between shipments. This is invaluable to you because imagine how many pieces you can get in a month's time. Ten? 15? More?
Never again will a special occasion dress gather dust in your closet. Borrow one from Gwynnie Bee's closet and send it back for something else. There is a price point for literally everyone- from $35 up to $159 (15 items at a time!!!!). Maybe you are one of my readers not sure about trying it out? Maybe you are worried about a contract or using your credit card online? I want you to put your mind at ease and give it a chance.
I have a great opportunity for you. Now through the end of this month, all NEW subscribers are eligible to get a free, 30-day trial subscription (up to 3 items at a time)! No risk, no commitment at all. You just have to sign up for the trial prior to December 31st. Cancel on or before your 30 days are up and you won’t be charged (You will have to send the clothes back!). New Gwynnie Bee Guests, request an invite (the site is invite-only at this time), tell them that Hems for Her referred you, activate your account, browse around and give it a try. You will receive an email with the invite and the trial instruction. Existing Gwynnie Bee guests: you are also eligible to receive the 30 day free trial. You can use your current guest account to browse, then go to the “subscribe” part of the site to activate your trial. Remember to tell them Hems for Her referred you so you can get the trial! As a reminder, this works with plans up to three pieces at a time.
I really hope you will join me and save money in 2013 with Gwynnie Bee. I really believe this is something that one you try it, you too will love it and you will want to keep you subscription! If you have any questions at all, please ask in the comments below or contact me via email, Facebook, or Twitter. I would love to talk with you!

Note: I do receive a commission on all who sign up for Gwynnie Bee and stay with them past the 30-day trial. However, I write about them so much because I truly believe in this company and what they offer to plus size and cusp-sized women. Anything I write I write from my heart with full honesty.
