Has your style changed since joining Gwynnie Bee?
Since joining Gwynnie Bee, I feel like I have been able to grow my style and explore more things that express me. Gwynnie Bee has become a closet of exploration, empowerment and encouragement. It’s not just clothes, it’s self-expression and culture that encourages you to be your boldest self. So I guess, since joining Gwynnie Bee, I have been able discover more about my style and myself.

Which styles do you find work best for your body type?
My hands down favorite, is a skater dress. I think it really accentuates my curves and celebrates all that is great about my body. You can dress them up or down, style it so it’s more edgy or more flirty and they are so comfortable to wear–it’s definitely a go to for me.

What new things have you tried that you wouldn’t have normally since being introduced to Gwynnie Bee?
Well, first off, there have been a number of brands that have been opened to me. I didn’t know how many brands there were out there that made clothes that fit my style, body and taste. I also have tried pencil skirts, body-cons, fitted dressed, and number of more fitted styles that I thought would never work for me, but once on, I was feeling myself.
