My Super Exciting News!!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

I’ve been waiting weeks to share this news with you all! No, I’m not pregnant. 🙂 I’m sure that’s why everyone clicked over to see. Ha!

I’m going to be a LulaRoe Consultant!! <—– Link to my Group If It’s Not Clear Below! 

A what? Why? Are You Crazy?

If those thoughts are swirling around in your head, I’m sure you are not the only one. I haven’t gone completely insane. Keep reading to hear my reasons behind joining!!

First off, if you don’t know what LulaRoe is, it’s pretty awesome clothing that I already wear a lot. While a lot of people fall in love with the buttery soft leggings first, the maxi skirt is what has sold me on LulaRoe. It’s the most comfortable maxi skirt I’ve ever worn, and if I’m not wearing a denim skirt I’m normally in one of these LulaRoe skirts!

I kept looking around, trying to figure out how I could find a similar type maxi skirt to add to Deborah & Co. I haven’t been able to offer very many maxi skirts there, because I have a hard time finding a skirt that I feel is modest enough.

There is just something special about the LulaRoe maxi skirts, they are flattering while still being modest. They don’t wrinkle, and they are seriously the most comfortable maxi skirt I’ve ever worn!

Then I added the Nicole Dress to my wardrobe, and fell in love with that one as well!

LulaRoe Pink Nicole Dress. It's super bright and cheerful, and is a great knee length dress that is comfortable for everyday wear.It’s a fun dress to wear all year long! I’ve layered it with leggings and boots in the winter months, and this print is my favorite! The longer sleeves on the dress are nice, and hard to find.

They have shirts, more styles of dresses and skirts, and even clothes for girls!

So how am I going to do this? 

I thought about this for months before joining. I obviously have a lot of different things going on, so I can’t take on one more thing without seriously thinking it through. I finally had a long call with a blogging friend of mine who is selling it, and realized this is something that we could do as a family!

It’s been hard, because even though we own family businesses, there have been only so much that our children can help in. They put stickers on Lilla Rose brochures, and sometimes help with shipping. They can’t help me blog, order inventory, or help Sean design new products. But they are really excited about helping with LulaRoe!

This Lace Lola skirt from Lularoe is just beautiful! I love styling it with a cardigan, and fleece tights to stay warm in the winter time!

We will be doing a lot of live shows (plus album sales where we just post pictures to shop from). My oldest son is really excited about doing these live sales with me (actually all of them are wanting to be involved!), and he also wants to help take pictures of the inventory. He is 13 now, and we have been wanting to get him more involved in our businesses and actually be able to pay him to help us, so he can save money for his first car. It blows my mind that we are at this point, but life has gone by quickly and he will be 16 before we know it!

All of our businesses have supported our family (which has been SUCH a blessing!), but we have had a hard time saving back the amount of money we want to be able to buy a house and move. Our family of 8 lives in a 1200 square foot, 3 bedroom 1 bath rental house, and we are majorly bursting the seams here! Add all our business inventory here as well and it gets kind of crazy. 🙂

How Can You Shop LulaRoe With Me? 

You will need to join my private LulaRoe Facebook Group!

Request to join that group and I’ll get you added ASAP. I’m giving away a pair of leggings right now, so make sure you enter! That is the only place I can sell online, and where all the live Facebook videos and album sales will take place. We will have at least one live Facebook sale a week, along with an album sale. It is going to be so much to interact with you all more this way!

2017 is going to be an awesome year! This is the year of Focus for me, and LulaRoe is definitely one of those things I’m going to be focusing on. I can’t wait to offer even more modest clothing for you all!

Let the new adventure begin! 🙂

 

 

 

 

A Gift Guide For Fashion Loving Ladies!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

You might be all done Christmas shopping by now, but chances are, you still are looking for some gifts. You might even have your husband still asking you what you want for Christmas, and you haven’t given him a list!

Time is ticking, but here are some gift ideas for ladies who love fashion! 

Fabric rose headband

Rose Headbands – Online you just don’t get a sense of how cute these are. When we went to conventions this last spring, these headbands seemed to draw all the ladies over! They are super cute, and so easy to wear. You just tie them under your head, and mine stay on all day. We have them available in different colors at Deborah & Co. and we are still shipping out holiday packages!

Here are the colors we have available:

Baby Blue Polkadot

Blue Floral Rose Headband (pictured above)

Country Club Blue Rose

Modern Millie

Pink PolkaDot Gray 

Plum Polkadot Lace

Sweetheart Rose

Milk Chocolate

modest outfit leggings

Fleece Lined Leggings – Every woman who loves modest fashion needs a pair of these! Unless you live in Florida that is. 🙂 Everyone who has a pair raves about how much they love them, and how warm they stay in them. My sister does not even wear these unless it’s freezing cold out, because she gets so warm in them! I’m the complete opposite, I wear them almost every day, all winter long under my skirts! They are adorable with a knee length skirt and boots, but also work great under maxi skirts!

A customer review

“Cozy and warm and makes me not hate winter! I was skeptical that leggings could be fleece lined and warm without looking lumpy and awkward. But these aren’t at all. And they are so soft. I’ve worn these almost every day this week, perfect for turning a knee length skirt into a year round item. I bought the black but have already decided I need the charcoal as well.”

Available in black, brown and charcoal color!

Receive free shipping on any USA order of $25 or more at Deborah & Co, through Monday, December 12th! Use the code: CHRISTMASGIFT to save!

This blue Pink Blush maxi dress is so comfortable and looks great with a short sleeve halftee under it! I'm styling it with a dangle necklace from JCPenny.

Halftee – These make easy gifts, because you just order them in whatever t-shirt size the person wears! The perfect layering option for all year round, wear the short sleeve under a maxi dress or sleeveless shirt, or use the tank for under low cut sweaters, dresses, shirts…you get the picture! The neckline has a high or low option, I’m wearing the higher option in the picture above. We even offer a full length Halftee to wear under cardigans.

Long Denim Skirt that is stretchy like jeggings!

A new denim skirt – This skirt is so comfortable, it’s ridiculous! It’s like you are wearing jeggings, in a skirt! All sizes are available and shipping out quickly (sizes 4-20). This is something you would love to open under the tree on Christmas morning!

My very first Stitch Fix arrived! I'm super excited to be trying this new service out!

Stitch Fix – Last year my husband totally and completely surprised me by giving me a gift card to Stitch Fix!  I had not asked for this, but he had heard me talk about how neat it would be try to this service out, and blessed me with $100 to do so. I was in tears, and in shock that he thought of it! It’s been the best gift ever, because it keeps going on! If you get a gift card and like the items, you can share on your social media accounts and earn $25 credit to Stitch Fix when someone signs up through your link. So your gift could keep stretching on past that one time!

Fall Stitch Fix Review – November 2016

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

It’s time for another Stitch Fix review, this time with Fall clothes! I was pretty picky over what I kept this time, making sure it went with the Dressing Your Truth colors that work for me. I’m not passionate about making every single item in my wardrobe match my color code, but when the items are good quality and cost more, I want them to be something I adore!

If you would love to get started with Stitch Fix, they offer gift certificates, which is how I got started! Last Christmas Sean gave me a gift certificate, and I was so shocked! He totally knew I had been wanting to try this service out, but I never dreamed he would get me a gift card! It’s a nice way for a husband to buy his wife some clothes, without doing the actual shopping. 🙂

If you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, here is how it works! 

First thing you do is fill out your style profile. This gives your stylist ideas on how tight or loose you want your clothes, want pricing, sizing, and color preference you have. This is also the place you link to your fashion board on Pinterest, so your stylist gets an idea of what you like! I have a board just devoted to pinning Stitch Fix items.

Now you just order your fix! You have to pay a $20 styling fee, but that fee is refunded if you end up keeping any item in your box. I always keep at least one thing, so I don’t blow through $20. Every box comes with 5 items. Stitch Fix offers clothes, shoes, accessories, jewelry, but you can specify what you want. I don’t have anything checked on my profile beside clothing, but I might try the shoes and jewelry section next time.

The box will show up in a few weeks (you can schedule when you want it to arrive, but it normally takes around 2-3 weeks for the stylist to put together you box, and it to arrive). You have 3 days to try everything on, and decide what you want to keep. A postage paid envelope is included, so it’s super easy to send back! If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your order!

Let’s start with what I did love first!

Yellow skirt with blue sweater from Stitch Fix.

Blue Sweater – Somehow I lost the sheet that showed the names of everything I received. So you get the basic names. 😉 This sweater is super soft and comfortable. I just couldn’t get over how soft it was, and I love the color!

Blue sweater from Stitch Fix

It’s so wonderful to wear something that feels like pajamas. 🙂 I saved this, and already wore it to an orchestra concert that my children played in.

Martina Cardigan from Stitch Fix

Martina Cardigan – This burgundy cardigan was something I really debated about keeping. It was incredibly comfortable. I ended up sending it back because I didn’t think I had enough in my closet that it would go with. I’m kind of regretting it though. I need to find some more cardigans this year!

Cardigan from Stitch Fix

You can always request certain items if you see something you like that Stitch Fix sells. I know they have this cardigan in different colors, so I thought about requesting it in a different color.

Shiela A-Line skirt from Stitch Fix

Shiela A-Line skirt – Ok this is a totally new look for me! I liked how the outfit all pulled together, but the skirt is not long enough for me to wear in everyday life. If I stand perfectly still or pose for a picture, I might be able to pull this length off, but even then…nope. LOL I want skirts to cover my knees. 🙂 The whole outfit is darker in colors than I prefer now. Back it went!

Tulen Pleated Top from Stitch Fix

Tulen Pleated Top – When I pulled this top out of the box I was in love with the color. My love for it ended there. You have to wear a cami under this top because you can see through it. It’s baggy, long, and barely tucked into this skirt for a picture. I adore this color, but it definitely went back!

Green shirt from Stitch Fix

I wish this shirt would have worked because the color is just what I’ve been looking for!

Overall I wasn’t out of this world excited about this box, but I’m glad I found the sweater. I wrote some honest feedback when I checked out, and Stitch Fix has waived my next $20 styling fee for me to try again. I always appreciate how often Stitch Fix will do this (definitely don’t abuse this, you want to give honest feedback each time so Stitch Fix knows what type of clothes to send!).

I’m going to schedule a box for December, and I’m really hoping to find 2 things in the box I want to keep, instead of just 1. 🙂 I added some more items to my Stitch Fix Pinterest board to give my stylist some ideas.

What would you love to receive from Stitch Fix? 

 

 

 

 

Dressing Your Truth Review!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

The Dressing Your Truth program has literally changed my wardrobe. I was so skeptical when I purchased this program if it would really do anything, but the confidence and knowledge it has given me has been a tremendous help!

The Dressing Your Truth program will totally change your wardrobe, and help you have a closet full of clothes you adore and that look good on you!

I’ve always been the more outgoing child. Sometimes I feel like I have more of a firstborn personality than my oldest sister. I’m bubbly, talkative, I enjoy being around people, and I enjoy bright cheerful things. This personality should naturally come through and be reflective in my clothing, but I’ve struggled to let that happen in years past, as I think I felt the need to fit into a certain mold.

Navy Floral Maxi Dress

I really don’t have to prove that I’m a conservative homeschooling mom by the more serious and somber colors of clothes. I can dress modestly AND let my personality come through with fun colors and prints! This course has really helped me be more confident in letting my personality shine, and dressing in a way that reflects who I really am.

Pink Blush Floral Maxi Dress

So what is the Dressing Your Truth program really all about?

In the course you are presented with 4 different beauty types. The first part of the course is where you figure out why type you really are, then once you select the type, the course walks you through how to dress for that type, what accessories, makeup, and hair styles work your beauty type.

The 3 hour course teaches you about 5 different elements of style – color, fabrication, texture, design lines and pattern. As you learn about these elements of style, it all seems to suddenly make sense. You get a big picture approach on how to dress for your type, and what will and will not work for your beauty type.

Dress Your Truth Program - find out what colors look best on you and what texture and fabrics are best for you!

What Type Am I?

I’ve got to admit, it was hard to narrow it down. I have a little bit of each type in me, especially the 1, 2, and 4. But as I kept working through the course I could identify with the Type 1 the best, the Bright Animated Woman. I’m pretty sure my secondary type is a 4. So what does this all mean?

I’m working on purging black from my closet, and instead wearing a lot of navy blue. Navy is the new black, right? At least for Type 1’s. 🙂

LulaRoe Pink Nicole Dress. It's super bright and cheerful, and is a great knee length dress that is comfortable for everyday wear.

It was after I took the course that I decided to cut my long hair. I cut 13″ off, and have a “fun” hairstyle now, bouncy and fun!

A Before Look at my hair…

A knee length denim skirt with a comfortable striped sweatshirt and a fun blue scarf for my hair!

13″ cut and curled with hot rollers!

A blue cardigan from Stitch Fix, and a brand new hairstyle with curly hair!

Could this course help you?

If you feel like you have a solid grasp on your wardrobe, and already adore fashion and know what really works for you, then you probably don’t need this course.

If you struggle to know what looks good on you, what colors and styles really work for your body, then this would be a really good course to take!

A Disclaimer

I actually didn’t publish this review for several months, as I was trying to decide if I should. I try to only endorse something that I can stand behind 100%. This is going to be one of those times that I give a disclaimer on something I’m endorsing.

If you are a christian, you might find the first part of the course to be rather new age like. You have to relate to the elements of the earth, and it just felt a little out there. However once I got past that, the practical hands on stuff that came was amazing, and I’m so glad I stuck it out. I just want it to be clear that I’m not endorsing everything in the first section.

I recently went through a different course, thinking it might be the perfect course to suggest. I came back to this one, because it really did dramatically change how I look at what clothes I purchase.

Styling Cards

I can’t forget to mention the super helpful styling cards! Once you decide what type you are, they send you a large and wallet size style cards of colors that work for you. I keep the wallet size card with me at all times, and it’s really helpful when I’m out shopping!

Dress Your Truth Store

I also love going to the Dressing Your Truth store and looking to see what they have! I’ve never purchased anything from there, but I get a lot of ideas from the colors they have in my style. I went out shopping with my sister recently and came home with bright and cheerful clothes, even brighter color clothes for winter! And you know what? It made me so happy!

Normally this course is $297 to go through, but they have a special price of $99 going on through November 22th!

Instead of just getting access to the type you pick out for yourself, you will receive access to all FOUR types! This is actually really helpful, because a lot of people are dominate in one type, and can still relate to another type.

You also receive all four style cards sent to you, instead of just the one type you choose! This helps you even more when you are out shopping, you can take all 4 style guides and instantly know if a color is yours or not!

This course actually saves you money in the long run, because you stop buying clothes that you really don’t like! You will know what colors and fabrics work for you, and only purchase clothes that will truly work.

If you can’t afford the course right now, you can go through the free energy profiling course here. I haven’t gone through this so I don’t have many details on it, but it might still be a helpful course to go through.

One last thing….this course has even helped me be more confident in makeup colors! I totally go for brighter lipstick colors and have fun with eyeshadow, without going crazy and drawing a lot of attention to myself. 🙂

Let me know if you have any questions, or decide to go through the course!
