Peekaboo-Chic {Giveaway}–CLOSED

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Happy Day After Thanksgiving! Are you shopping today? If you are, good luck and stay safe! Or maybe you already went since most stores opened yesterday at 6 pm (and some at 6 am!). I, for one, am more of an online shopper, and here’s a gift that you could buy for a friend, daughter or yourself, right from the comfort of your computer!

Fancy Slips was created by a mom wanting to give her daughter more modest options while shopping for skirts and dresses.  She created an entire line of fancy (and some not-so-fancy) slips in several designs and a variety of colors that help extend your just-barely-too-short skirts and dresses. You can see my first review of Fancy Slips HERE.

Fancy_me_whole

If you read my first review of Fancy Slips, you’ll know how much I loved my Fancy! The quality is great, the designs are beautiful and the customer service is phenomenal. This time I chose to review the most popular Fancy Slip, the Bethany.

My last Fancy slip I ordered was a size Medium, and it felt a little constricting–almost hard to walk in because it was so straight. So I chose the size Large this time which was definitely big around the waist but gave me more room to walk. However, the Bethany is also a fuller style, so I’m sure that helped it feel larger at the bottom as well. The lace on the bottom is beautiful and I love the flirty, frilly style. It works really well with all types of dresses and skirts, whether flowy or straight. I love the look of the Bethany under this swishy blue dress. blue dressAnd the Bethany makes this cool, super short $17 Target find wearable beyond the beach! coral

Fancy Slips come in several styles and lots of colors, so I guarantee that there’s a Fancy Slip for every dress in your wardrobe that will help you “extend your wardrobe in style.” Take a look at their shop and find a slip to make that dress in the back of your closet wearable again! If you live near the Orem Mall in Utah you’re in luck–today they’re having a special Black Friday sale: Buy 3 Get 1 FREE! For the rest of us, you can order online, but be sure to order soon to get your Fancy in time for Christmas! And for one lucky winner, Christmas will come early because Fancy Slips is giving one reader a chance to win a Fancy Slip of your choice!

As a mom, I probably bend over to pick children/cheerios/toys/who-know-what off the floor at least 35 times a day. As tiring as it is on a day-to-day basis, it’s even worse on Sundays, when I’m trying to do it in high heels and a skirt without flashing the entire congregation at church. Does anybody else have this problem, or am I the only one? Well, for me anyway, this is where Fancy Slips comes to the rescue.

Fancy Slips makes beautiful slips to go underneath all those skirts or dresses that you have that are just a bit too short, or that have a huge slit up the back. The company was started by a mom who saw a need for more modest options for her daughter for school dances. After creating a few dresses for her daughter, she created the Fancy Slip to help make almost-modest clothes just that much more modest and practical. She created an entire line of fancy (and some not-so-fancy) slips in several designs, and each comes in a variety of colors. Check out some of these beautiful designs:

I love the Ivory on Black look of The Maegan:

The Darcy is casual enough to wear under a skirt/tunic on a summer day:

You would need just the right dress/outfit to pull The Bibi off, but look how cool it is:

I was sent the March slip, and I think it’s just gorgeous. According to Fancy Slip’s measurement chart , I was right on the border of a small and a medium, but I chose the medium so I could have a little more room in the hips. I’m glad I did because the slip is fairly slim at the bottom, so I’d advise you to go to the next size up if you’re on the border like me. The design was beautiful and I could tell the garment was well made. Here’s what a slip looks like by itself (this one happens to be The October):

And here’s me wearing The March slip under my outfit last Sunday:

Cute, right? I’ve worn that skirt 100 times to church before, but I got so many compliments that week because of my Fancy! It adds that extra touch of glam to any outfit while also making it more practical. I was so much more comfortable picking up Goldfish and books out of the church pews in that skirt than I have ever been before! See? 🙂

If you’re in Utah, you can attend a free modesty class hosted by Fancy Slips at Apricot Lane Boutique at the Riverwoods the second Tuesday of every month from 7-8 pm. The classes talk about what modesty looked like through time, how fashion looks today and how to incorporate modesty, plus there are refreshments at the end, so really, it’s a win-win. If you’ve been to one, leave a comment and let me know how it was! Prices for each Fancy Slip range from $26-$39, which is very reasonable for something so versatile and practical.

Fancy Slips is giving one lucky winner a free Fancy of her choice!
