My First Time Wearing NYDJ | Gwynnie Bee Review


Gwynnie Bee, the monthly subscription service for sizes 10 - 32, recently added pants to their vast library of fashion. Yay for all of you that requested pants for the longest time! I'm happy they expanded their selections; I'm not sure if I feel the same way about the NYDJ Bobbie Boyfriend pants. Let me explain:

Color
LOVE IT. The rosewater color is light, ultra feminine, and unlike any other in my wardrobe.

Fabric
Amazingly soft, plush, and smooth.

Sizing / Fit
Gwynnie Bee suggests sizing down for the perfect fit. As an apple-shaped girl, my waist is the largest part of my body to fit properly. There is no chance is hell these pants would have zipped up, let alone button, in a size 22. Though the pants fit in the waist, they were baggy on the thighs and legs, and especially in the crotch. Great, now you're all probably looking at my crotch in these photos. I totally get the slightly loose fit of boyfriend jeans, but these were just too loose.


So, this is why I'm conflicted about the NYDJ Bobbie Boyfriend pants. The color and feel of the fabric is excellent. Sizing and fit, however, need work, at least when it comes to my body. Should I keep the pants (now you can buy items you love directly on Gwynnie Bee's website), they will need some alterations. Oh, I'll also wear them with a different shoe. I really liked them with my Birkenstocks (see below), but opted for the wedges to compliment the black quilted bag. Bad decision. Next time I'm going with my instincts and rockin' the Birks and a different bag.
