Happy February & welcome to my new, updated blog site! I’ve spent a lot of work and put lots of love into making my blog the best it can be! I hope that you love it as much as I do! I had the pleasure of working with Cat from Gatto Blog Designs on Etsy! She has such beautiful blog designs in her shop, and helped me along every step of the way with redesigning my blog. If you’re in the market for a blog update, go check out her etsy shop here.
This month has been exciting so far as I might have discovered one of my new favorite stores! It’s crazy to think that I tried something other than Francesca’s when scouting out the perfect Valentine’s Day dress. My new favorite is none other than Altar’d State!
What really drew me to this boutique is the fact that they as a Christian retailer that lives by the motto of “giving back”. With every purchase made, a percentage goes to local and international charities. One of their main focuses is their child sponsorship in Peru! On top of that, each Monday 10% of the profit goes directly to a local charity. How amazing is that?!
This dress immediately drew my attention. I absolutely loved the lace detailing, and the cut was super flattering. I went in with the idea of finding a blush pink dress, but after trying this on, it was definitely a winner! This pearl necklace was so cute, and like nothing I had seen before. I love that the length on it is perfect, and it adds some bling to the dress without being overboard.
Whether your spending this Valentine’s day with your significant other or going to a “Gal”entine’s Day bash, this dress definitely fits the bill. Remember that if you don’t have a boyfriend, fiance or husband, don’t let this holiday bring you sorrow! If you are single this time of year, or separated by a long distance relationship (I’ve been there many of years), round up your best girlfriends and be surrounded by those who love you. Never forget that we are loved by a mighty & perfect God, and He is the perfect valentine to be thankful for.
