Apostolic Clothing {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Hey all you winter fashionistas, need something to keep you warm that also has a touch of pizzaz? I sure did! And since I’m of the church going faction I really wanted a coat that would be long enough to cover my legs and add another layer of warmth when I’m wearing a dress.Apostolic Clothing happens to have dozens of floor length dresses, jackets and long coats perfect for sprucing up your winter wardrobe and they are adding new styles all the time!  I love coming back to their site and seeing the fresh inventory just waiting to dazzle my closet (ha).

If you haven’t heard of Apostolic Clothing before you’re really missing out.  They are an awesome store that specializes in modest modern & vintage style clothing (thinks trendy patterns, flattering cuts, and long stylish dresses and skirts).

Anyway, I was over the moon when Apostolic Clothing asked if I would like to review a winter item, following my review of their ballerina skirt a few months ago (you can read about that here).  I choose the Adora, one of their long dress coats time.

This coat drops to just below my knees, and has a quilted/ruched type design that is elastic and pulled the coat around my curves, making the coat also resemble a dress.  Actually if your look at the picture on Apostolic Clothing website they’ve accented the coat with a black belt making it look even more dress like (though the belt does not come with the coat).

It has a high popped up collar that rests just under your jaw and is great for wind protection along the sides and back of your neck though it doesn’t close in the front so if you’re going for warmth with your fashion you’ll want to pair it with a scarf.

It’s also a really light weight coat, (made from 100% polyester) I would say it could easily fall in the jacket category and is ideal for warmer winters days when you don’t want to haul around a heavy bulky coat, but you still want protection from wind. I’m quite tall (5’10”) and I found the sleeves were just a touch short for me, ending just above my wrist. I ordered a medium and if I were to do it again I would probably go up a size just for the sleeve length, but I suspect not many of you are going to experience the same height issues.

Finally this coat comes in tons of colors (blue, black, white, red, purple) and sizes S – 1XL.  So if you’re looking for something to add some color to the bleakness of winter one of these colorful numbers might be just the thing.

Check out Apostolic Clothing for more great modest winter styles, perfect for Christmas and ideal for winter weather.

Grandway {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Mother’s Day is only 3 weeks away!  If you already have your mother’s gift taken care of, give yourself a high five and a round of applause for staying ahead of the game.  For the rest of us, its crunch time!  Tradition at my house says mom gets bakeware for Mother’s Day.  This year, I’ve been begging and begging for a real set of pots and pans because we’re still using odds and ends and abandoned pieces we’ve collected from old roommates.  No really, its pathetic what I’ve been using for saucepan lids these days.  So it was settled–“Charlie” gets a toolbox for Father’s Day, and I’m getting a dreamy set of cookware.  Mother’s day cannot come fast enough.  Now I’m thinking, since I have this fabulous set of pans coming my way, what would be the perfect addition to my ensemble?  Ooo, how about a darling apron!  And some cute hot pads!  While I’m at it, some flirty rubber gloves!  Courtesy of Grandway, check, check, and check!

First, let me show you the darling cooking aprons from Grandway:

ApronsGroup1

My turn!  Do you love my hot apron?!  I’m wearing The Lindy apron – a solid red with leopard details, adorable buttons, adjustable button and loops in the back neck, and extra long ties so that I can tie a bow in the front.  This pocket in the front is huge, but SO useful.  I tried on this apron yesterday morning and have hardly taken it off–especially for our Sunday post-church-scramble to get the house put back together and dinner on the table.  Its just so cute and comfortable!

I love every single stinkin adorable apron from Grandway!  Putting one of these on is like getting into a darling little dress when its time to bake!

Next, I’d love to showcase Grandway’s Gloveables!

Since I started really getting down and dirty with the cleaning around here (little boys are SO messy!), I’ve taken rubber gloves more seriously.  I love being able to protect my hands from scalding hot dish water while also protecting my nailpolish from chipping away.  Plus I feel like a rockstar when I’m cleaning the toilet, and who can honestly say that?

These are fantastic!  They easily cover enough of my arm that I don’t have to worry about rolling up my sleeves.  The rubber is thick and the glossy bow makes these almost too sexy for the kitchen.  I can definitely tell that these gloves were designed for women, since my hands fits perfectly (like a glove, haha), but the finger space is still roomy and comfortable.

Now to complete my ensemble, I need a cute oven mitt set to match my apron and gloves!  The buttoned cuff on the mitt is just too much.  I can’t get over the cuteness.

I’m sure one of these sets would look lovely in your kitchen too!  Don’t these make you feel like baking?!

Next up, do you ever find yourself hunting down bags to drop off your dry cleaning?  I’ll admit to once dropping mine off in a trash bag over a hanger.  Classy, Camille.  These dry cleaning bags are one of those unnecessary necessities, and oh so pretty!  Whoever is doing your dry cleaning is bound to think you’re a movie star when you drop off your stuff in one of these.

Ok, to be honest, when I next opened this darling blue box, I wasn’t exactly sure what it was or how to use it, but after trying it out, I totally see the usefulness of it.  These are magnetic key finders.  They consist of some intense little magnets.  Now, I am a culprit of carrying around a “pit”, a giant bag where nothing is organized and I stand at the door searching and searching for my keys among a hundred other things.  With the charm visible outside of your bag, and a magnet on the inside, as you drop your keys in, they cling to the inner magnet and are always there when you need them.  Since the charm is magnetic, you won’t be damaging your nice bag, and you can move it from purse to purse.

And as if this giveaway couldn’t get any better, let’s add a designer luggage tag to the loot!  These feel so Hollywood to me.  Super glamorous and distinguishable.  There is an insert card for your personal information, a metal plate on the bag, glitzy rhinestone studded (!) strap, and all in such a lovely gift box!  This would be a great gift for your girlfriends who love traveling.

Ladies, show this post to your man and tell him in a not-so-subtle way that this is exactly what you want for Mother’s Day.  Or hurry and order a set for your mom while you’re waiting to see if you’re the winner because…

TWO lucky ducks are going to win everything you see here!  Yes indeed, your own apron, oven mitt set, pair of Gloveables, dry cleaning bag, magnetic key finder, and designer luggage tag!  Wow!
