Sorella Bella {Giveaway} – CLOSED

My first date ever was my Homecoming dance, Junior year, just a week after I turned 16.  I wore a pale yellow dress that I borrowed from a friend, and felt as beautiful as Cinderella!  My date was so charming and at the end of the date, he thanked me for wearing a modest dress.  So neat, huh?  Ladies, I know many of use choose to dress modestly for ourselves, and to be a good example to our daughters, but it is also important to think about how our clothes affect the thoughts of the men in our lives.  I think few will argue that it is hard for a young man to think wholesome uplifting thoughts when his date is wearing something that leaves too little to the imagination.

One of the times in my life when I was particularly cautious about the clothes I was wearing and the impression I wanted to leave on those I encountered was on my LDS mission.  I wanted clothing that was long enough on bottom, high enough in front, and something I wouldn’t have to fudge with to keep myself covered.  Oh how I would have loved this Botanical dress from Sorella Bella!  The print is so romantic!  I love the large, abstract watercolor-look.  The cut is flattering and an invisible zipper closes it up nicely.  The hem is clean and the removable sash makes it just as comfortable and still fitting as ever.  For years, I have fought against florals, and steered clear of anything that looked ‘old lady’ and dated, so I took a risk with this, but after all the positive comments I got when I wore this last week, I’m so glad I did!

Sorella Bella (also known as Sister Missionary Clothes) is a shop of lovely tops, skirts, accessories, and even shoes, and they carry the most beautiful dresses, all MODEST and still flattering, current with today’s fashions!

The best comments I got were from a cute friend who is about to turn in her mission papers, when she said, “Where did you get this dress?!”  She’s looking to expand her missionary-attire wardrobe, and I was so proud to tell her about Sorella Bella.  Here are some of my other top favorites that I would wear in a heartbeat:

Plus, the most darling tops, cardigans, and SHOES that are so ideal for a missionary logging miles and miles every day–cute and durable!  Everything in the shop is designed for sister missionaries and picked BY returned missionaries, so you can count on these fashions being excellent choices for holding up with daily wear for 18 months and beyond.

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.

Rumor has it that there will be a wedding this Spring!  So excited for my little brother!  Lately I’ve been looking up cute dresses online, trying to find something nice to wear to receptions, luncheons, etc. and I get SO FRUSTRATED that I cannot find a cute dress with sleeves and a hemline that doesn’t fall mid-thigh.  I’m a mom, but I don’t want to dress like I’m 16!  Or 40!

A lot of people hear the word “modest” and think of out-of-date granny sweaters and flood pants.  Its true.  Just kidding.  Though these would be considered modest clothing options, if you have modesty standards, there are much better choices available!  Let me introduce you to Kosher Casual, an online clothing shop in Israel that carries trendy skirts, dresses, tops, leggings, etc.  How refreshing it is to be able to browse their clothing line and be able to consider purchasing nearly everything they carry.

Kosher Casual Long

Here are some of my favorite knee-length skirts:

 I also really love their selection of workout clothes.  The prices are incredible!! 

The gray workout shirt: $11

Pink swim shirt: $8 (anyone training for a triathlon??)

Gray yoga pants: $13

Kosher Casual also carries great layering tops and I was thrilled to try out a cropped 3/4 sleeve shell top.

It is perfect for this winter weather!  These tops are finding their way into every modest girl’s closet.  I was very very impressed with the quality.  The fabric is thick and nothing like a see-through t-shirt, but cool enough to wear with all sorts of outfits.  Plus it comes in sizes XXS – XXL, holy cow!

If you are looking for some great holiday clothes, modest athletic wear, or some lovely layering shells, you’re going to love this giveaway prize!

Kosher Casual is offering a $25 giftcard to one lucky winner!
