I love it..it's like getting new clothes every month...but different new clothes.
You start by perusing all the styles they have and then adding a minimum of 6-10 items to your Gwynnie Bee "closet". As those items you choose become available, they ship them to you quickly (about 2-4 days via USPS Priority Mail). Included in your box of clothes is a return garment bag with a prepaid postage label. You should also go online and note that your items are shipping bag (so they can get another item ready for you).
Every item I've worn I've received compliments on (and I've only told a few people that they're Gwynnie Bee). There were a couple items i sent back that i didn't wear at all..and some i wore only once to get 'my money's worth' but they weren't a fit i was comfortable with.
Gwynnie Bee updates with new clothes every 2 weeks, so I'm constantly adding clothes to my 'closet'. They've also recently started a newsletter with pictures of other Gwynnie Bee subscribers in the clothes. This has helped tremendously. I've added some things to my closet..but even more beneficially I've deleted a number of things from my closet. While the models they have online are plus size women..they're not my exact body type. I love that so many clothing brands are making items for a plus size woman..but i think that there are things that still need to look appropriate and even more importantly, flatter your body. Seeing some of the other subscriber pictures, recognizing their body type as mine, I made a choice for myself, not to wear those styles, and deleted any i had added to my closet, which to me helps me to get a better return on my monthly subscriber fee.
If you really like a style, you can inquire from them what the purchase price would be.

I've been lucky enough to receive another VoxBox from Influenster. here's a quick video on the products I've received in the box
Influenster sent me these items free of charge for testing and reviewing purposes.
If you're interested in finding out more about influenster and how you can possibly review products for them, send me a message and I'll send you an invite.
Stay tuned for my individual thoughts on the items in the box!

I've delved a bit into the Holiday Vox Box and the one item i've used the most, that definitely requires a review is the Goody Quickstyle Paddle Brush.
I was super excited to use this brush. My hair is fine, but there's a lot per square inch, and it's getting curlier/wavier as I get older, so it takes FOR.EV.ER. to dry. I normally take my other paddle brush (also by Goody) and brush it out, and the tangles..into my towel to get most of the moisture out.
The quikstyle brush has these microfiber 'fingers' between the bristles, theoretically to draw out the moisture, cutting down on the drying time. With added vents on the side..i thought for sure it would pull the water out like i do with the other brush and towel....not so much. So disappointed. I think the vents are to cut down on the mold/mildew factor by trying to dry the microfiber a bit more. I do not notice a difference at all between using the two brushes, so I definitely would not pay the $7 difference to buy this brush. Will i keep it? Sure why not..i can always use an extra paddle brush at my mom's or in my gym bag. But if you're using a paddle brush to brush out the tangles or after showering, i would jsut go with the original Finish 3.

amuse-bouche (uh-MYUZ-boosh) noun - Similar to but not to be confused with hors d'oeuvre. This is a tidbit, often tiny, served as a free extra to keep you happy while you are waiting for your first course to come. It gives you an idea of the chef's approach to cooking and the restaurant's attention to your appetite.
