Apostolic Clothing {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Do you ever feel like all the cute dresses are super short and/or show a lot of skin?  Unfortunately, I do – and while I adore dressing up, I’m just not comfortable showing that much skin.  (I’m no spring chicken over here). To make matters worse so much of the clothing marketed as “modest” looks like someone shot the couch. *cringe* *shutter*   But really, if you want a skirt that covers your knees and a dress that has sleeves and no major (reveling) cutout, your options are pretty limited and generally pretty bland. (Thank goodness for maxi dresses right?).

Anyway I came across an ad for Apostolic Clothing and I was sucked in like sand and a shop vacuum.  There is such a thing as stylish modern clothing that also doesn’t make me look like an 80 year old grandma???

Apostolic Clothing is amazing!  All of their clothes will keep you covered but for once you don’t have to sacrifice your sense of style to wear a dress. (They even have a bunch of stylish plus size clothing!) and cute vintage looks to boot. Here is a little preview of what I’m talking about:

I couldn’t wait to work with Apostolic Clothing, and I was so excited about the review I literately had their site up for two days while I was narrowing down my options for a review item.  Toward the end when I had my list narrowed down to four options I finally had to have my husband wight in. Ha!

I’ve seen these tulle skirts around and I think they are dreamy. I was thrilled at the chance to review one, and the opportunity to channel my inner ballerina.

The skirt has six layers, one very wide tulle layers, four more narrow tulle layers and one satin like layer that reaches just below your knees on the very inside of the skirt so the whole thing isn’t see through. The top of the skirt has the tulle folded over an elastic band.

One thing to note is the skirt is a one side fits all, which always makes me a little concerned.  I thought it seemed a bit tight when I first pulled it on, but I didn’t notice it being uncomfortable or pressing while I was wearing it.  The skirt is also really full (which I love) but the fluff also created kind of a faux muffin top because it puffed out so dramatically at your waist.  Some of the girls in the pictures had a shirt tucked into the top of the skirt and it looked really cute on them but I found having a dressy shirt that would cover the very top of the skirt worked a lot better for me.

The sweeping folds of fabric were a lot of fun and the whole skirt kind of blows softly around you while you walk. The skirt comes in a handful of colors (black, maroon, cream, pink) and is a perfect transition piece for fall because it’s so light weight but it reaches a little lower on your legs and still has some substance to it.

In short it’s a fantastic skirt.  My inner ballerina is thrilled to be wearing it and it makes me feel really dressed up while still being comfortable.

If you’re looking for some fashionable but conservative clothing or if you just love vintage fashion you’ve got to check out Apostolic Clothing!

Kate’s Camisoles {Giveaway}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Just yesterday I reviewed a shirt from Kate’s Camisoles and I said I was a fan. Today I’m here to prove to you again why I think her shirts are so wonderful, and YOU will get a chance to win one of your very own!

In case you missed it yesterday, Kate’s Camisoles is a company focused on helping women stay modest while still looking fashionable. They have a huge line of undershirts (called camisoles) to go under or pair with any outfit. All of Kate’s camisoles are modest (and cute!) enough to be worn alone or under a shirt, sweater or dress. Kate prides herself on having the best fabric of any similar company on the market, and I have to agree. Of the three shirts I’ve reviewed for her, they’ve all been soft, easily washed while avoiding pilling, and dreamily smooth to wear. This time around, I was sent the Very Nice camisole to review, and I’ll say, it is Very Nice!

nice-shirt

The Very Nice is a cap sleeve-style top with a moderately high scoop neck, higher back and moderate-length cap sleeves. The top is long and hits at about mid-to-low hip. The thing I love most about the design of the Very Nice is the decorative white stitching around the edges of the top. It gives it a fun, different look while still being a classic piece that can be worn with just about anything. The Very Nice comes in seven vibrant colors, like Royal Azul (the color I ordered), Dark Orchid, Goldenrod and Wine, so you could find a shirt to go with any outfit you had!

nice_outfit

Like I said, the fabric is SO SOFT and comfortable. It’s a Rayon-Spandex blend that is smooth against the skin but retains its shape and size after a full day of wearing. I ordered a size Large so I could have room for Baby, and it’s still fairly loose on me, so were I not pregnant, I’d have ordered a size Medium and it would have fit just right (I was a Medium pre-pregnancy). See how I barely look pregnant when wearing it? I like that 🙂

Kate’s Camisoles are all made in the USA and can be purchased online and shipped fairly quickly. The Very Nice is $24.99 but is on sale right now for $18.99, which is a great price for this colorful, versatile shirt! And, if you enter below, you could win a Very Nice shirt in your choice of color and size, thanks to Kate’s Camisoles!

ModestPop {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I could do anything in a cute dress, couldn’t you?  No matter how bad the date went, or how poorly by interview turned out, I could always face hard things or missed opportunities or even mean people if I was wearing something I loved!  The more likely I am to feel stressed or worried in a situation, the more effort goes into my outfit so that how I look can be the last thing I worry about.  Another thing I never want to have to worry about is how much leg or cleavage I shouldn’t be showing in a professional environment.  While layering is always an option, sometimes its just so much nicer to go modest the first time 🙂

Let me show you the most darling collection of dresses that I would wear in a heartbeat to boost my confidence in any situation!  These are the beautiful dresses of Modest Pop:

4Sleek, professional, and feminine, yes?

Modest Pop is a store that has just boomed since the last time we worked together (and you can read that review HERE).  What once was a small boutique is now a thriving super site of dozens of beautiful things.  They carry tops, skirts, slips, professional dresses and more casual dresses, much like these below and the dress I picked out for myself.

Here is the Daisy Dress, which is sold for $48, available in blue or green, and in sizes XS through 2X!

blue3

I love love love this dress!  I think the starch white lace on top is beautiful and the print is so sweet and vintage.  The full skirt is so fun to wear with boots, and the style makes it easy to accessorize.  I love the invisible zipper in the back, the included belt, the refreshingly long length, and the beautiful silhouette it creates.

The empire waist is probably lovely on girls without a lot of curves, but not so friendly on us full-figured girls, so note that before taking these pictures, I made a quick seamstress alteration and took 4″ off the hem and lengthened the torso with this extra fabric, so that the gathers (which I changed into pleats) would lay beneath the belt and not above it.

Also note the big and beautiful selection of clothing for sister missionaries!  If you message them on their Facebook page telling them where you are going on a mission, they will message you with a 15% off code!  Must tell my sister…

Go pick out your next favorite dress!  Things go quick, so act fast and make sure you follow ModestPop to get a heads up on new styles…

One winner will receive $20 to spend at ModestPop!

ModBod {Giveaway} – CLOSED

I try to look by best at church every Sunday, I really do, but more often than not, I’m diving for toys thrown under pews, chasing babies down the hall, and wrestling toddlers to the ground (ok, not really), but I’m left pulling my skirt back down, tucking shirts back in, pulling sweaters back over, etc.  I keep thinking I have got to get more durable (but still flattering) pieces in my wardrobe that help my ensemble feel a little more modest while I’m trying to look “put together”, without wearing a maxi skirt and a turtleneck every week.

If you’ve ever found yourself in my situation, you’re going to love today’s review!  Modbod is a fabulous clothing store full of basics like cap sleeve shirts, camis, crop tops, demi caps, quarter sleeves, etc.  Basically, if you’re looking for a little more coverage or more layering options, this is your one-stop shop.

Beyond the basics, they have signature tops

…and a fashion collection of the most wonderful clothes!  Everything modest, and everything cute.  I had the huge pleasure of picking out a few items to showcase.

I got to review the Red Jeggings, Lace Front Cami in Charcoal, Demi Cami in White,  and a Red Striped Cardigan that is currently on sale for $4.99!

18001515    14891568

I love everything!!  Why don’t I just show you:

sweaterThis cardigan is soft, warm, and well-made.  I like that the sleeves are extra long and that the faux pockets on the sides don’t add extra bulk at the hips.  I think this is a great color for Fall/Winter!

leafThe demi cami is awesome.  In an outfit like this, I don’t at all need the cami to cover my entire torso.  In fact, it would only be a huge bother to try and keep it smooth underneath the dress, and only add another layer of padding to my waist.  The cami is enough for coverage and it scoops low enough in the arm pits that I don’t feel chaffing or even notice I’m wearing another layer at all.

pantsLastly, my two favorites are these red jeggings and gray lace front cami!  The red is so fun and bright!!  These pants are extremely comfortable, a perfect fit (true to size), and the color doesn’t bleed or fade after a washing.  I love not having to worry about red dye transfer.  The gray cami is the dreamiest thing!  Its thickness is spot on for coverage and comfort.  Lace is definitely the style of the season, and this color is beautiful.  Thank you, thank you, Modbod, for creating a lace cami that doesn’t scoop too low or creep too high.  I probably wear this atleast once a week nowadays!

Modbod, I love your clothes!

Mikarose {Giveaway}

logo-1

The temperatures are starting to heat up outside.  Is your summer wardrobe stocked and ready?   The best advice I was ever given to combat the summer humidity here in St. Louis was this:  Cotton skirts.

Modest Dresses

The above summer skirt is from Mikarose and I’m telling Audi today that I need it for my summer wardrobe.  It’s long and modest, but light weight for the summer heat.  So I’ll be cool and fashionably modest at the same time!  Okay I just told him as I’m typing this and he agreed that I can make the purchase.  Not that I need his permission or anything.  😉  It’s just nice to keep him in the loop.  😉

Here’s another summer find from Mikarose:

S1309TealProduct_MED

I’m thinking it would be perfect for the summer heat outdoors as well!

(Note to self:  Talk to Audi about that maxi dress tomorrow.)

Both of the above can be dressed up, but are you looking for something just a bit more fancy?  Mikarose has fancy, too!

In fact Mikarose sent me this gorgeous number:

MDS001BlueLarge

I absolutely love the look and feel of this dress.  It’s light weight for the summer, but the beauty of the lace and flowing fabric really make it something special.  And the color?  Perfect for carrying over into the fall and winter.

You cannot go wrong with a piece of modest clothing from Mikarose.

Now for the giveaway…

The winner of this giveaway is going to receive $50 to spend at Mikarose!
