The Gwynnie Bee Inspired by You Tour jetted to the West Coast last week and disembarked in sunny California. L.A. was a great spot to hold another round of our Member Review Events, talk fall trends on TV, and help host two hopping parties. And we’re not complaining about the beach time either!
The London West Hollywood Hotel was an incredible setting for our Member Review Event. Our members know fit and style, so we turned to them for insight on some fabulous styles launching soon! We use this great feedback as “GB First Fit Reviews” on the New Arrivals—so you get the insider scoop on what each item is really like.
In addition to the fun and fashionable members we saw, we brought in some of our favorite local bloggers to join us. Reah Norman, Kristine from Trendy Curvy and Allison of Curvy Girl Chic were such a blast to spend time with and killed at the photo shoot we hosted with them! Kristine shared with us, “Working with Gwynnie Bee was truly an amazing experience. Being able to interact with their staff and their great community of members, you can really see that the core values of their company permeate through to each facet of their business. They are passionate about women and it shows.”
We popped over to KTLA to showcase some great fall fashion, available on our site to closet now. Reah Norman highlighted our fashion with ease and looked gorgeous doing it, in no small part to her great glam squad. Reah told us, “Working with Gwynnie Bee as a brand ambassador for the photo shoot and happy hour, as well as on the KTLA morning news segment was an absolute dream! This is what I love about my job—being able to connect with plus size women and share my fashion inspiration!”

It was time for a party of our own, with our amazing L.A. membership, held at Pearl’s Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. Reah, Kristine, and Allison co-hosted the chic party where the sliders and sangria were second only to the gorgeous rooftop space. We were tickled that Monique from Curves and Chaos and Rachel of Lovely in LA joined us for the fun, as well! Allison enthused about her experience with us, saying how much she enjoyed getting “to end the day with an amazing happy hour where I got to meet gorgeous bloggers, fellow shopaholics, Gwynnie Bee members, and hang out with the fab GB team was the cherry on top!”
Did we mention our second party? We love Australian brand City Chic so it was an easy RSVP “yes!” to join in their first U.S. anniversary celebration. Courtney Maxwell, a City Chic designer, and Reah Norman co-hosted the bash at the flagship store and surprised their guests with 50% off their merchandise in-store and online.
L.A., you sure know how to show girls a good time! Thanks for having us and we’ll see you again soon. Time to pack up our beachwear and dust off our cozy fall looks —we’re headed to Chicago next! We’ll be there the week of Oct 5th. In the area? Keep your eye out for an email with all the details. We’ll see you there!
