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!

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!

So I’m a youth adviser for the young women in my ward at church, and as leaders, we’re always trying to encourage dressing modestly, first and foremost by what we ourselves are wearing.  Even though I’ve been trying to dress modestly my entire life, I am even more aware of what I’m wearing as I am trying to be a good example to my girls.

Often, we hold youth dances, where modesty standards are strictly enforced.  Get this: if anyone shows up to the dance wearing clothes at are sleeveless, skirts that are too short, or anything too tight or revealing, they are told to change and if they didn’t bring a better change of clothes, we have pioneer clothes for them to wear!  Haha, the epitome of modesty, but not exactly the epitome of style.logo

I’ll tell you about a shop that has both modesty and style: Modest Pop.  I have already addressed my frustration about shopping for modest clothes.  Shopping online for something that I can wear without having to add a sweater, leggings, or a shirt underneath is not my favorite pastime.  These clothes are cute, cute, cute, and totally modest, which doesn’t have to mean frumpy.  Or pioneer.

What is really terrific is this selection of cute LDS Sister Missionary clothes!  It is beyond exciting how many women are putting in their papers wanting to serve a full-time mission for our Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!  I like to think that had I been 19 and still single, I would have jumped at the chance as well!  These thousands of women are looking and shopping for conservative and still stylish clothes, so if you know of a soon-to-be-Sister, or you yourself are about to embark on your own LDS mission, consider checking out ModestPop’s selection.  Plus, MISSIONARIES GET 20% OFF!!!  I myself would be all over these maxi skirts and that ruffle jacket.

With all the cute clothes to choose from, and the quickly changing inventory, I was so excited to receive a pink vintage stripe sweater from Modest Pop!  It is extremely soft and stretchy, and it has become the first thing I grab when I’m cold, which is always.  It is a perfect casual sweater, and yet it can be dressed up.  This is what I wore to church last Sunday.

Too bad this sweater is sold out (I think I got the last one?) but have no fear, Modest Pop still carries it in black and white!

One winner will receive $15 to spend at Modest Pop, and you know, that’s great, because $15 could buy you almost anything in the store :)  The prices are that great.

I have been a closet fan of eShakti for YEARS!!  The first time I visited their site, I fell absolutely in love.  A site of simply fabulous clothes, and all of them customizable in practically a dozen ways.  Their dresses can be customized exactly the way you like!  If you fall for a dress that is perfect in every way, except you’d like to add sleeves, raise the hem, and remove the pockets, done!   Then if you change your mind and decide to change the sleeves from cap sleeves to ¾ length, and change the neckline, done and done!

AffiliateTermsConditions20032If you are self-conscious about any part of your body, you can style their dresses or tops to one that suits your body type.  This is the answer to every woman’s qualms about their insecurities (and we all have them).  I bet we can all think of something we like to hide, or cover, or show off.  I can see how eShakti is appealing to all women of all shapes and sizes.  They carry everything from size 0 to 36W, for goodness sake.

Ok, look at me.  I’m 5’2 and a DDD.  You can bet its nigh unto impossible to find any article of clothing that fits the first time I put it on.  This is a big reason why I’ve resorted to sewing most of my clothes in the first place.  Knowing everything that is entailed in making bust alterations and irregular body type fixes to ready-to-wear garments, I am telling your that eShakti is a goldmine.

I spend several HOURS looking through their eShakti’s dresses and finally narrowed down my favorites.  I literally had a list of at least ten favorites and I couldn’t bear to choose just one.  Eventually, I settled on the Chambray Trench Dress because chambray is so popular right now, and I think this dress looks great in a variety of seasons and can be styled a number of successful ways.  The site is extremely customer friendly.  I even had a question about the sleeve options and my email was answered promptly.  Every order, even custom orders, are made and shipped at remarkable speed.  It was just over a week before I got my dress on my doorstep, from start to finish.  That’s faster than a personal seamstress.  I should know 🙂

What a complete breath of fresh air and sigh of utter relief to try on this dress straight out of the box, button it up, and exclaim, “Oh, this fits!!”  I put in a custom order, which is just $7.50, (and is free for first time customers!!), so I could get it just exactly right!  I put in every custom measurement they asked for, and changed the length of the dress to be knee-length.

eShakti is the cream of the crop of tailor made dresses!  Don’t you see the value of this shop when it comes to bridesmaids dresses?  You could start with one dress and each girl could get it styled to their liking and body type, and made exactly to their measurements.

I want to order every dress I ever wear from eShakti!  I have no criticisms, no complaints, and not a single suggestions to improve the awesomeness going on at eShakti.  I only hope they stay around a long, long time.  They have found a life-time fan in me, that’s for sure.

I know a lot of us care about dressing in modern fashions that are still modest and not sleezy because we have modesty standards for ourselves and because we are trying to be good examples to our daughters!  I think it is just as important for young women to have clothing options that are cute, flattering, and are still age appropriate.  Sometimes we forget that it can be just as hard to find modest dresswear for little girls!  I’ve been commissioned as a seamstress several times for Christmas dresses or flower girl dresses because their mothers could not find anything cute and dressy that wasn’t sleeveless!   I wish I had known about Aliza’s Boutique and could have referred my friends to their adorable selection of dresses, jumpers, and tops!

Here are some of my favorite little dresses!

Darling, right?  Aliza’s Boutique also carries beautiful and fashionable girl’s skirts:

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect little black dress for quite a while.  A classic LBD—but not karaoke bar style.  Something I could wear to a wedding reception, date night, or a work party.  Mikarose has some drool-worthy little black dresses, all beautifully modest, trendy, and so perfect for the holidays!

Some of my favorite little black dresses from Mikarose:


Can you tell which one I picked?

Yup, I chose the Rebecca dress!  I think its PERFECT!  The ruffled details on the shoulders are totally chic and fashion-forward.  I love that it is a unique look that you don’t see on every modest dress, but it is still subtle enough to not look over-the-top.  It is made out of a high-quality and heavy weight knit, and I’m impressed with the construction and durability.  My only complaint is that I followed the Mikarose sizing chart for knit dresses exactly, and still wish I had picked a smaller size.  It came very roomy and long, so after some minor seamstress alterations, it fits much better, and I’m totally pleased.  If you order the Rebecca dress, just choose a size down, and you’ll love it!

Is a killer dress on your list for Santa this year?  Are you still looking for something eye-catching to wear to a holiday party?  Times a ticking, you better hurry!  Check out Mikarose’s beautiful shop of dazzling skirts, dresses, tops, and accessories that would be perfect for your holiday wardrobe!

One lucky dear is going to win $50 to spend at MIKAROSE!  FIFTY DOLLARS!  Merry Christmas!
