Clothed with Grace: New Day, New Blog

New Day, New Blog

Welcome to "Clothed with Grace!"  I'm so happy to have you here!

For quite a while I've been itching to change the name of my blog.  When I created this blog over two years ago, the name really fit. I had rediscovered my closet and every outfit I put together was literally "My New Favorite Outfit." Now, two and a half years later, I still enjoy getting dressed and want to feel good in my clothes, but it's ok for an outfit, to just be an outfit.

I began thinking and searching and thought about who I am, and then I realized that I am way more than the clothes I wear, I am "Clothed with Grace" by an unfailing God! He pours out his grace on me so freely an I'm so thankful for that! The new name was born.  :)

I still plan to post my outfits, but I want to be able to branch out to show more of my life, family, faith, and well anything my little heart desires. No matter the content, I'm always "Clothed with Grace."

So that you don't miss out, I'd love for you to bookmark, refollow, etc. Thanks for joining me on this journey!

First off, I love how this outfit came together. I think it's perfect for this spring and summer, and I felt great wearing it. I just got this top after seeing it on another blogger. I hadn't ordered anything from Sheinside before but have seen c/o pieces on other bloggers.

Everything on Sheinside is super cheap and it comes from China. The top I'm wearing today was only $10, and you get 30% off your first purchase, so I figured, what did I have to lose other than $7. I normally get a medium (sometimes small), but I ordered a large, as I've heard that the sizing runs small when ordering from a site located in China. It only took about two weeks to get here, which I thought was pretty good, but I'll tell you, you get what you pay for.

This "large" fits more like a small-medium in my opinion. It doesn't have a tag of any kind, so who knows if it really is a large. There aren't any washing instruction either; I ended up washing it in warm/cold and not drying it, and that worked fine, though.

So, although I think this print is absolutely adorable, I definitely got what I paid for. I don't think I'll order from Sheinside again. I know some bloggers who really like it, but I think I'll stick to brands I know.

  1. Love your bracelet and your cute neon skirt!! I agree about ordering from overseas. Things fit differently. Congrats on your new name! Susan

  2. Firstly, I LOVE THIS SKIRT! The neon colour and length are just perfection. And the top pairs perfectly with it. I've ordered a few things for Sheinside as well. Sizing is definitely weird!

    Question: I know you've found awesome things on ThredUp (so have I thanks to your recommendation), but have you ever sold through them? I'd like to sell a few pieces but don't know if I should use ThredUp or another site. Thanks!

    1. I did sell a while back and wasn't impressed with how much they gave me for what they took. I do know a lot of people who love selling to them though. We have a facebook buy/sell/trade group in my area, I usually sell that way now. Maybe look into something like that as an option.

    2. Thank you! I was thinking of that as well. I also found another site I will look into - Tradesy. It's amazing what you've found on ThredUP!

  14. Found your blog through Shanna Said So. Cute skirt! I host a link up every Wednesday (still live), stop by if you get a chance :)
