Fashion Friday || Me!!!

Hello Peeps!

Yes, I know, I haven't done an actual Fashion Friday in forever... but here I am at last! 

Oh, and before I get to the pictures and outfit details, I must give a HUGE thank you to my photographer... who just happened to be my extremely adorable, 8 year-old brother! <3

So this is the overall look, minis my shoes. My little photographer couldn't seem to get them in the frame. ;) 

I got my skirt at the Goodwill (duh), it's originally from Forever 21, and is basically brand-new. I am LOVING it! Being that it goes with almost anything, it is perfect for a quick "grab-n-go" outfit. 

I paired my awesome skirt with a layering tee, and a hot pink sweater. (Thanks to Emmy for the awesome fashion ideas! You rock girl! <3) Under the sweater, I sported my black Adidas belt to add a little bit of flare. I topped it off with some antique jewelry and silver flats! 
Hmmm.... still no shoes in this one.... ;)

Outfit Details~ 
Skirt ~ Goodwill, Forever 21. I think it was like $7.00?
Sweater ~ I have no clue where we got this, but I do know it's Ann Taylor Loft.
Layering Tee ~ Modest Pop
Belt ~ The Wardrobe, Adidas. I believe it cost about $3.00 at the most.
Necklace ~ Antique Store, $1.00
Earrings ~ Antique Store $0.50
Hair Clip ~ Lilla Rose
Nail Polish ~ New Seasons

 Ah yes, above, you can see my shoes and necklace! :) (Thanks to Elanee for the awesome shoes! <3)
And... here is my hair and hair-clip. It's simply French braided down both sides of my head, and joined in the back! :)

So yeah! There you go, what did you think? What would you wear with the skirt? 
I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comment box! :) 
"In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."
-John 7:37-38

Sorella Bella | Review

Hey Everyone! 

I'm excited to introduce you to a company that provides modest, affordable, yet very stylish clothing! So with no further adieu, meet....

About (from website): "In Italian, "Sorella Bella" means "Beautiful Sister".  My goal is to offer the best selection, prices, and service on modest-yet-stylish clothing to all ladies whether they are mission bound or not...."  (For more information, click HERE)

Some of my favorite items from Sorella Bella would include...
The Knit Blazer ~ $24.50
Stripped Skirt ~ $39.95
I could go on and on with my favorites, this company has the most amazing clothing!
For this review, Sorella Bella sweetly sent me their beautiful Isabel Dress in teal...

My Thoughts~ I was so thrilled to receive this dress, and was even more thrilled to find how gorgeous and versatile it is!

This dress features a lovely floral lace panel in the bodice, a fun and flowy gathered skirt, delicate cap sleeves on top, a fitted waist, and a hidden side zipper.

Needless to say, I absolutely love this dress!  It's easy to "dress-up" with a pair of heels and pearls, but also easy to "dress-down" with fun sandals for a more casual event. I was planning on taking picture of me in this dress... but then I decided to use it for a Fashion Friday. So you are going to have to wait to see anything! Haha!

This dress is also fully lined and high necked, which means no bothering with camisoles, etc. Whew! ;) It is also extremely easy to wash, no trips to the dry cleaners with this one! (Another whew! ;))

The Isabel Dress comes in three different colors, Teal, Deep Red, and Coral. I chose teal because that is such a versatile color! :) (Plus, I don't think I can get away with a bright coral! ;))

Overall~ This dress is truly beautiful and not only do I love it, but also my sisters! (I've even convinced one of them to buy the same dress!!! Twinsie alert! :P)

I really encourage you all to check out Sorella Bella then come back and let me know what you think or what you bought!  Do they carry anything that would fit your closet? Do they carry that one thing that you can't seem to find elsewhere? Let me know in the comment box, I'd love to hear your thoughts! Don't forget to tell me what you'd wear with the lovely Isabel Dress! :)

Rating: 5 Stars!
Customer Service: Awesome! :)
Recommend to a friend? Yes.

In closing, I'd like to give a huge thank you to Candace at Sorella Bella! Thank you so much Candace! 

For the rest of you, stay tuned, I have an amazing giveaway coming up that I know you all will love!

Fashion Friday || YOUR input!

Hey Everyone! 

 Due to many complications, this week's Fashion Friday is a little different then normal. ;) But to make it interesting, I'm sharing some pictures of something I recently purchased, so I can get YOUR input! 

With winter coming and all, I've been working on putting together some outfits that will be seasonally appropriate. For me, this is actually really hard, since I'm a summer person, and one look into my closet will confirm that. ;)  

So here is what I purchased, and......... being that I got it free, I really didn't purchase it! (Click HERE now to find out how you can do the same!)   It is an American Eagle (yes, that rocks! ;)) Gray Stripped Sweater Top.

Picture from
I'm having a lot of fun mixing and matching it, trying to figure out what looks good and what doesn't!

And that, is how you all come in!

Picture from
I want YOUR opinion on it!
Picture from
How would YOU wear this top? Are you more of a stripes person or a polka dots person? What colors would you pair with this top? 

Any thoughts, ideas, questions, and concerns are welcome! Leave them in the comment box below! 

I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts! :)

Fashion Friday || Elanee Smythe

NOTE: Today is THE LAST day to enter the Sage Hill Designs giveaway!  Click HERE now for your chance to win a beautiful headband and a lovely set of Scripture cards!

Hey Everyone, 

How have you all been? I hope you had a great summer! Eden kindly asked me to do a Fashion Friday for you all this week, and I’m very excited to be able to share with you all! I know some of you probably remember me from Fasihion Friday’s I’ve done before, but I’ll just introduce myself again. My name is Elanee Smythe, I’m 21 years old, and I enjoy spending time with friends, talking, reading, singing, writing, playing music, cooking, dog-siting, studying the Bible, and blogging over at I enjoy every moment God gives me, and I desire to live my life for His glory! This outfit is one of my favorite outfits for fall. It’s light, yet warm, and comfortable, and easy to wear for most occasions. I don’t know why but I seem drawn to blue colors in the fall. Maybe it’s because I’m trying to act like it’s still summer. Anyhow, enjoy the outfit, and let me know what you think of it!

As the summer season comes to a close, it’s fun to get those sweaters, and shrugs back out of the closest, and create some warmer outfits. This past week I finished my closet makeover in which I took everything out of my closet and started over. It was very fun to get new shelves, and a super neat closet organizer to help put my clothes back in order. Then, I enjoyed sorting through my clothes, and creating outfits that make it much easier for me to “grab and go” for an outfit in the morning, when I’m not ready to make decisions:) After about 5 hours of in-depth work, I was satisfied with my finished closet. It’s finally organized, workable, easy to maintain, and ready for the long winter months when warm clothes become a necessity!
Outfit Details!

Lace Skirt- Clothing store at Oregon Coast -$15
Blue Shrug- Macy’s (I think) -probably less than $10
Grey T-shirt- Goodwill-$5
Blue Necklace- Antique Store-$10
Pearl Earrings-Gift from Mom- unknown price
Pearl Bracelet- Gift from friend via Starfish Project- $15

Here’s one of my favorite passages from Scripture that I’d like to share with you all today!
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” Isaiah 55:8-11

Jupeinc | Review & Fashion Ideas

About (from website. For more information about their unique story, click HERE): "Jupe de Abby is skirt store, located in Rochester, NY, founded by Christian owner Abigail Soto. The word Jupe means SKIRT in French, so the store name translation is "Abby's Skirts". Jupe de Abby celebrated it’s Grand Opening Skirt Party June 11, 2011 and a year shortly after launched it’s Official website on June 11, 2012. With the help of God, family, friends, and a supportive church family, Jupe has been able to expand rapidly within its couple years of operation. On October 5th, 2013 Jupe opened its first storefront which has been a tremendous blessing to those within its city."

Some of my favorite items from Jupe would include... 
Listing Price ~ $12.99
Listing Price ~ $16.99
...and the list goes on! :) 

For this review, Jupe generously sent me... 
... the very cute lace shirt in Coral. 

My Thoughts ~ I've never actually owned a shirt with this many themes and colors mixed in it... so I really had a lot of fun experimenting with it!  After talking to my fashion guru friend about it, we both decided it would go really well with a sleek denim skirt, gold or silver flats, long gold necklace, and big earrings. We also decided that the shirt looked good hanging loose or tied, which is what I prefer to do. ;) So I combined this look and snapped some quick but not-so-good pictures. ;) 
Outfit Details:
Skirt ~ Style J
Undershirt ~ ModestPop
Outer-shirt ~ Jupeinc
Shoes ~ Friend <3
Necklace ~ Ethiopia
Earrings ~ Random Etsy Shop ;)

If you look very closely at the pictures, you will see that this shirt features a lovely and very bright coral color, shiny buttons, gold "studs" on the blue collar, different sleeve lengths, and lastly, open lace arms, back, and pocket.  I wore a layering tee underneath it, but a camisole or tank would work just as well! 

I think I would describe this shirt as... shabby chic. The actual shirt style is very country/shabby, while the lace, collar, and studs come across as very chic. I'm pretty sure that's why it looks so good with a denim skirt and flats. ;)  

Overall, I'm really liking my lace shirt!  I'm finding that it not only works perfect for a casual shirt, but also a colorful cardigan.  It's extremely feminine and stylish, which I love, and for those of you who have that shabby-country flare, this is the shirt for you! It also comes in a lovely aqua blue, so visit and check it out! While you are there, be sure to find out what else fits your style! 

Don't forget to leave a comment below and let me know how you would wear this lovely lace shirt, I would love your thoughts and ideas! 

Overall Rating: 5 Stars for excellent customer service, quick shipping, high item quality, etc. 
Recommend to a friend? I'm doing that right now! ;) 

In closing, thank you so much to Abigail for making this review possible! Don't forget to check out her awesome website! 

For the rest of you all, I have some more awesome reviews and giveaways coming up, so stay tuned! 
God Bless! <3

Sage Hill Designs | Review & Giveaway

Hey Everyone! 
Today, I have yet another giveaway for you! 

I'm especially excited for this one, since I am actually acquainted with the girls behind this business!:)
Picture from

About (from website, for more information, click HERE): "We are four sisters who have been inspired by beauty and cute crafty things nearly all our lives.  we enjoy working with our hands and desire to combine the various interests and gifts God has given us to bless others and ultimately bring glory to the Lord." 

Some of my favorite products (pretty much everything they have is a favorite, so these are like the top two! haha) from Sage Hill Designs would include...
Picture from
Rosette Necklaces ~ Listing Price: $15

Picture from
  Flower Headbands ~ Listing Price: $10
I actually liked the headbands so much, that I bought one.  They are... a.m.a.z.i.n.g! They work really well, and are extremely comfortable. I'll be purchasing more in the near future! ;) 

So for this review, I received a pack of Hannah's beautiful Scripture note cards! 
Photo Credit: Hannah Hobbs

My Thoughts~ I loved everything about these cards... the gorgeous pictures, the encouraging Bible verses, the size, the texture, everything! 

They measure 4x5.5", have a blank inside, and kind of have a matte texture.  This texture gives the card a country/retro look/feel which is pretty cool. 

There is a different verse (and picture) per card, each one being very encouraging and uplifting!  They are a witness to unbelievers, and a great motivation for Believers!

These adorable cards also make for great gifts, thank-you cards, heartfelt letters, and quick "thinking of you" notes. 

Another really neat aspect about Sage Hill Designs, is that with every purchase, 10% of it goes to two different ministries! (Click HERE for more information.)

Overall, these cards are awesome, as is the entire Sage Hill Designs business! :)  Go check the website out, then come back and let me know what you think! Don't forget to make a purchase... they carry everything from homemade aprons, to hair accessories, and much more! 

Rating: 5 Stars!
Recommend to a friend? YES!
Customor service? Very Excellent!  

Before I get to the giveaway, I'd like to give all the Hobbs Sisters a very big THANK YOU for sponsoring this review and giveaway! :) Thank you so much!!! <3 

PRIZE: A set of Scripture Cards and a Beautiful Headband!
