The Gwynnie Bee Spritz

GBprsitting

Hey, all you curvaceous ladiez out there! Do you know about Gwynnie Bee? It is a monthly fashion subscription service (think Netflix for designer clothes!) that is dedicated exclusively to women size 10 and above. Pretty brilliant, right? Not surprisingly, they’ve amassed a lot of fans since launching a few years back, and they totally recognize that their members’ community is a major part of their success. So, a few weeks ago, Gwynnie Bee kicked off a multi-city tour celebrating their devoted members and community influencers called GB Inspired By You Tour.

a monthly subscription box, full of the latest plus size trends for women sizes 10-32

Of course New York City is the first stop on @gwynniebee’s nationwide “Inspired By You Tour”! Check out the signature #BitByaFox cocktail for the blogger happy hour tonight! You know I love my summer spritzes! 🍸🍸🍸🍸🐝🐝🐝 #ShareMeGB

In each city on the tour, Gwynnie Bee will have people preview and try on apparel that is just about to launch, including this adorable giraffe print Leota dress that I got to wear to their Happy Hour event for their New York City kick-off – just one of the perks of designing the signature cocktail for the night – The Gwynnie Bee Spritz!

GBpr The cocktail was such a hit, that I thought I’d share it with you guys! It’s actually one of those drinks that you can batch out ahead of time for group events, so you can actually enjoy your guests and not be tending bar for them all night! It’s also major crowd pleaser. I loved looking around the room and seeing so many lovely ladies with this drink in their hands!
