Florence Adams Review and Giveaway!!

Hey y'all! I have an awesome giveaway for y'all today. But first, I thought I'd share the skirt that Florence Adams sent me...
Pretty packaging. Score!


I chose the Yellow Pleated Skirt... and it's fabulous!

I've always stayed away from pleats and this length of skirt because I thought it was unflattering on my figure, but this fits so nicely! I went with my waist size instead of my hip size and it is absolutely perfect.

 
 It was tough to decide which top to pair with it for church this week-- there were so many options from my current wardrobe! This style of skirt is super versatile.

Florence Adams is an adorable company. They have cute clothes and handy kitchen items and furniture, all with amazing style. They also have a blog with modest fashion inspiration that I'm disappointed I only just now know about! It's fabulous and I will be reading it regularly.


Shirt: Made by me
Skirt: C/O Florence Adams
Shoes: Thrift store ($2)
Belt: From a maxi dress
Bracelets: Various gifts and a leather cord

So, you wanna hear about the giveaway?! Florence Adams is graciously giving away two (2!) $25 gift cards to y'all!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

  • Giveaway ends midnight central time Thursday, June 21st, so please enter by then! 
  • [I changed to a Rafflecopter widget within 8 hours of this post originally publishing. I realized there was no way I was going to be able to keep track of the entries after getting 46 in that time frame. So, if you entered on Thursday by commenting, would you mind entering again via the widget? So sorry! I didn't realize how many entries there would be and there's no way I could keep track via comments. If you commented saying what you would like to get with a gift card, no need to comment again, just check the box.Thanks!]
That's it! Can't wait to see who wins! 

Have a great day!

    This is so exciting, I hadn't heard of Florence Adams before this and I really like all of their apparel items so far(I'm sure the other products are great, too, just haven't looked at them yet!) I liked them on facebook. As far as I what I would choose to buy with the giftcard...I like both the Fuchsia Pleated Skirt and the Fuchsia Belted Circle Skirt, they are both so cute. I might just end up getting both of them regardless if I win the giveaway! :)

  34. Cute skirt!

    I tried to sign up for the newsletter thingy or whatever it was at the bottom of the homepage on the Florence Adams site, but it didn't confirm my signing up or anything, so I don't know if it worked or not.

    But if I won, I'd buy a cute skirt probably, or maybe a sweater or a dress! Their clothing is cute, it'd be hard to choose one thing! lol

I suppose I just need to sit my rear in a chair and sew....I have this really bad habit of starting a million things and only finishing a half a dozen of them *sigh*...something I'm working on!
