As Social News Daily‘s resident boobs-haver, cis-female, and Officer Of Trunk Junk, Gwynnie Bee has intrigued us (and by us I mean me) by being a pioneer of the newish intersection of social media and shopping.

SND earlier covered Gwynnie Bee‘s free trial period, in intro and midway point posts. Now our first month of Gwynnie Bee is about to conclude — just as jeans have finally been added to the rotation! Ugh. Like anyone can even call that a choice.

As a member of Gwynnie Bee (now eagerly awaiting a pair of dark jeggings), I learned a few things about this social shopping experience that are cromulent for those seeking to embark on a journey of endless internet closets.

With Gwynnie Bee specifically, we can observe …

If you stay on top of newly added items, you will often get new arrivals. Which is to say that items you closet immediately after they pop up in “new arrivals” are far more likely to appear at your door than veteran frocks, which is pretty awesome because …

You’re pretty likely to be retiring some items from circulation with alacrity. That new Asos cardigan I got less than a week after Gwynnie Bee? Sold, at an amazingly low price. This is actually pretty significant when you discover …

Social curation is a powerful tool for finding clothes for your body type. Style has always been a great love of mine, as an FIT grad and former makeup artist. “Curation” (choosing from a pre-screened set) has upped my wardrobe ante significantly, even if every piece isn’t perfect for me personally.

Getting new clothes in the mail all the time is pretty addictive. Sure, you have to pay to be a member, but the excitement of potentially new garments all month long is a service worth subscribing to in and of itself.

In earlier Gwynnie Bee reviews, we noted that for a telecommuter (like myself) it would be hard to find a real reason to stay subscribed — this goes for people who lack occasion to wear fashionable clothes regularly, from all walks of life. However, given the unexpected perks, we’re likely to continue — and keep an eye out for similar social shopping experiences.
