Flor wrap dress: Gwynnie Bee

Flor Peacock Wrap Dress
(a Gwynnie Bee exclusive)


This pretty wrap dress from unknown brand Flor is exclusive to the Gwynnie Bee collection.  If you haven't heard of Gwynnie Bee... it's like Netflix for plus sized clothing.  It's a great way to try out new brands and figure out your size among the various plus brands out there.  You can get a month free (I recommend getting the 3 item plan). And, it's easy to cancel. 

Okay... now I'm done tooting the Gwynnie Bee horn. 

This dress has some great things going for it.  The length is nice (I rarely find dresses that hit at or below the knee, on me... darn this long body!)... I love the print on the fabric (it's a collage of photo real flowers and peacock feathers).  I love the use of color. 
I also love that the neckline has elastic in it (I think this should be a trend in *all* wrap dresses forever!).

I hate the fabric they printed on.  It's like a thin microfiber washcloth.  It's decidedly 70s feeling.  It isn't uncomfortable.  I just don't personally like the texture's weight or feel.  It's almost gauze-like. 

Husband also mentioned that he didn't care much for the "tshirt sleeves".  I do think that the sleeves are an odd length.  A little shorter or a 3/4 sleeve would have made it overall much more va-va-voom and less dowdy. 

But, see!  That's the GLORY of Gwynnie Bee!  I'm not stuck with this dress.  I just send it away and something new comes in its place.
