Has your style changed since joining Gwynnie Bee?
Gwynnie Bee has inspired me to look out of my comfort zone in terms of brands, styles, fabrics, everything basically! I never thought I would be able to wear some of the pieces that I pick out. It’s such an awesome feelings having so many brands to try out. I definitely experiment more and find my sense of style and fashion risk-taking increased.

Which styles do you find work best for your body type?
After handling some really tough life changes, I found myself 100 pounds heavier within a span of 2 years. I went from a size 14 to a size 22 in what has seemed like a blink of an eye. But what’s really fascinating is that my mental health is in a MUCH better place at 300 pounds than it was at 200!
I say all of that to say self-awareness was key in helping me shape my ability to pick the best styles for me–even through life’s inevitable changes! I tend to reach for jumpsuits and rompers. I LOVE high waisted pants and shorts, plus pencil skirts are also a staple of mine. I am still working on my habit of reaching for oversized dresses and tops, but with Gwynnie Bee, I’ve made some really good progress!

What new things have you tried that you wouldn’t have normally since being introduced to Gwynnie Bee?
Those frilly and pretty tops! Shopping in an ordinary retailer, I usually go to the dresses, the pants, and jumpsuits or rompers. I skip the tops because I have been blessed 100 times over in my bust area, and I prefer to save myself the agony of hearing the stitch pop as I pull a top over my H cups. But Gwynnie Bee has provided me the chance to try the prettiest tops that I was once afraid of. Read Randy’s review of RACHEL Rachel Roy Oversized Denim Detail Jacket here.
