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!

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!

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!

Back in November, I reviewed the Lace Inset Camisole from Kate’s Camisoles. I loved it and gave it a glowing review. Well, in the few months since then, “Kate” has made a few changes to that particular camisole and asked me to review the new version and give some feedback! Naturally, I had to say yes 🙂

logo

If you read my last review, you’ll remember that 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–from lace to cotton, shiny to matte, and casual to elegant, Kate’s Camisoles has you covered (pun intended!). This Lace Inset Cami is simply beautiful and can be worn a number of ways.

You can see it has a cap sleeve design that is just slightly longer than the average cap sleeve (a plus in my book). The scoop back doesn’t come down too far, and the front lace panel is perfectly placed to just barely peek out of most shirts, sweaters and other tops. The lace is delicate and adds just a touch of romance and flirtation to whatever you’re wearing. The fabric is a poly-spandex blend that is dreamily soft and comfortable while still retaining its shape, thanks to the spandex. The length is just right–hits at about the mid-hip–and I have to say I like this Ivory color even more than the Nude, which I had first.

close up

I like this new camisole even more than the old one! The new design ditched the decorative stitching around the sleeves and neckline, which I think makes it even more comfortable. Also, the top is one piece now, so there is no awkward seam up the back. My husband still laughs at the “wrinkled” fabric, but as those of us who know fashion understand, the “wrinkled” fabric is a look that is not only classic, but practical, too, especially when traveling!

outfit

Kate’s Camisoles has made a fan out of me, so head on over to Kate’s website and see what other wonderful layering tops she has in store for you! No matter what shirt/dress/sweater you need to make more modest, I guarantee you can find something that will work and that you will LOVE on her site!

So, it finally got “cold” here in Southern California. As in the high is only in the 50s and 60s during the day! I know this sounds ridiculous to those of you in below-freezing temps, but trust me, 50° seems really cold when last week we were strutting around in shorts because it was 80°! So, I’m all about layers right now–and have I got some cute layers for you!

logo

Peekaboo-Chic is an adorable online boutique that specializes in “lavish layering for women, ” especially in regard to “skirt and legwear accentuation.” I bet you didn’t know you could accentuate your skirt or legwear, but oh, you can! All of their creations are handcrafted from patterns made by fashion designers in Utah, and these ladies know what they’re doing. Their creations are so cute!

clothesboots

I’m loving all of their Boot Socks! I never seem to have the right boots or the right outfit to pull this look off, but after seeing how cute these socks are, I sure want to! They also make boho-chic hair accessories, beautiful slip dresses that are perfect for that dress that is too low at the top and too high in the bottom, as well as slip extenders. I was sent the Bring on the Frill Layering Skirt in Gray to review, and can I just say, I LOVE the versatility of this skirt!

skirt

First of all, it can be worn as the obvious, a skirt. The top panel can be worn flat to lengthen the skirt or folded down to shorten it and add extra coverage of your middle section. The fabric is polyester/spandex so it’s a little clingy on my bum when worn this way, but if I pair it with a pair of leggings or tights, it lessens the effect.

High waist

folded

Next, it can be worn as a slip extender. I’ve already praised the utility of such slip extenders, so I won’t say much more than they are awesome. I especially love this skirt as a slip extender because the fabric is super soft and stretchy but also a little silky, so it flows nicely underneath my skirt instead of bunching up or feeling uncomfortable like some slips can feel.

slip

Lastly, it can be worn as an adorable frilly tunic! Like I said, the material is really soft and silky, so I had to wear a shirt underneath and put a belt around my waist to help the top stay up and finish the look, but I love the final product! Super put together and right on-trend.

tunic

Do I need to say that I love this skirt? For $36 you are getting an incredibly versatile piece that can be worn in a variety of ways and a variety of settings. Dress it up with some bling and wear it to a wedding; dress it down with a pair of jeans and wear it to Girls Night! It comes in a variety of cute shades including Cream, Camel, Black, Red and Mustard, so it can be worn with countless skirts, dresses, pants, tops and sweaters. The Bring on the Frill Layering Skirt can be purchased at Peekaboo-chic.com. But if you’re feeling lucky, enter below to win a skirt of your own in Black or Cream!

Now that fall/winter is really starting to settle in, we’re all looking to layers, right? Even though I live in southern California where it still warms up to about 70 degrees during the day, I am still busting out my boots, sweaters and pretty undershirts. And I found some beautiful undershirts at Kate’s Camisoles!

logo

Kate started Kate’s Camisoles in 2004 as a way to help women stay modest while still wearing today’s fashions. She has dubbed this philosophy “fashion flexibility.” Kate has created more than 10 different styles of tops in dozens of colors that can be worn underneath sweaters, tank-tops, low-cut tops, or even on their own.

Kate maintains that her fabrics are nicer than any other camisole on the market, and I can attest to that. I was sent a Lace Inset Camisole to review and the fabric is dreamy. It’s a polyester-spandex blend, but it’s like nothing I’ve ever worn. It’s soft and smooth and stretchy without being tight and restricting. I hardly feel like I’m wearing anything when I put it on! And yet, I feel warm, modest and smoothed out, all at the same time! Kate says she wanted to make a product that women can feel great in, and I think she’s done it!

dress

The Lace Inset comes in Ivory, White and Black as well, but I thought Nude would be the most versatile. According to the sizing chart, the camisoles have an “ample cut,” so you should order a size smaller than you normally would if you like a snug fit. I would normally order a Medium, so I ordered a Small. The fit was great, but maybe a little short. I think I could have gotten away with the Medium and been just fine. But maybe on a shirt that wasn’t so stretchy you would consider ordering a size down.

She carries several other styles of shirts including lace-covered camis, bright-colored everyday camis, shiny Glam camis and lace-edged camis (note that she uses the word “camisole” to mean shirt, not tank top–these all have sleeves unless they specifically say “tank”).  Her tops are a little pricier than other similar-type undershirts, but I believe that the quality of the fabric is worth the extra money. She also sells some really cute Fashion Scarves for only $16.99, and has some really good Closeout sales! Kate’s Camisoles can all  be purchased on her online shop, but don’t worry–she has a great return/exchange policy if you’re not 100% satisfied with your purchase. And lucky for you, Kate is offering one reader a choice of one of her Camisoles for FREE!

Who knew finding shirts that are long enough for someone 5’2 would be hard to do.  I have a pretty short torso, yet I’m constantly annoyed by having to pull at my shirts to make them longer, especially after bending down to pick up toys and bending over to get little boys into car seats.  No thank you, plumber’s crack.  Eww, you see it everywhere.  It drives me crazy seeing girls bend over and exposing way too much back skin.  If I had tee shirt extender from Blush Accessories for every sad case of the shrinking shirt, I would share them like candy.

This is another super option for achieving that layered look and keeping your belly covered without layer upon bulky layer.  These extenders are shaped like a tube top and can be worn high for extra coverage up top, or low on your hips, and it will stay right where you’d like it.  It has a nice hemmed edge and made from a spandex blend, and it is actually really soft and comfortable.  I tried out the new lovely olive green extender and love the look!  I was quite satisfied with the soft cotton feel, construction, and clean appearance.  I’d sure love one in every color!

This tee-shirt extender will be a LIFE SAVER the next time I’m pregnant.  Most of my maternity shirts grow too short fairly early, and this little guy will be the perfect extension to my maternity wardrobe.  It would also be a great solution to covering up those jeans held together with a hair tie because they just won’t close over your growing belly!

The tee-shirt extender comes in olive, black, white and mocha, sizes S through XL, made proudly manufactured in Provo, UT!  USA, baby.

Blush is offering a coupon code to our readers!  welovebloggers will give you 20% off your order!

One lucky winner will receive a Tee Shirt Extender from Blush Accessories in your size!

I love the layered look, but I do not love how hot it can get and how much bulk all these layers can add to your figure!  Molly’s Clothing is an awesome shop of so many solutions to this very common problem!

Mini Molly’s from Molly’s Clothing!  Look at this terrific top coverage available in a variety of comfortable silky or jersey fabrics!

Wouldn’t these be perfect paired with maternity tops and dresses?  You wouldn’t have to worry about the bottom half of your tank being super stretched and wrinkled in odd places.

While I’m on the topic, I need to mention that these are PERFECT for nursing so that you don’t have to pull up so many layers of clothes.  So ideal.  Molly’s Clothing also carries tops, dresses, skirts and even modest wedding dresses!!

I was thrilled to receive a strapless mini from Molly’s Clothing.  I have SO many tops and dresses that are absolutely not mom-appropriate without something underneath!  This little lace tube top is a dream come true!  It is much classier and fancier than a common white tank, and you can wear it two ways, with either the thin or the wide lace on top!  Reversible, lovely, machine washable…I love everything about it!

Molly’s Clothing is a great place to stock up on a variety of layering options!  For yourself, or for your teenage daughters!

Here is a promo discount!  The code “Dandy” will give you 10% off regular price items.

THREE lucky lucky winners will each receive one Mini Molly in your choice of size and color!
