Appropriate Apparel Review + Giveaway!

Today I have a review for a really sweet item. I am one of those girls that likes modest clothing. And one area I really like this to be seen is my skirts. Who out there loves a denim skirt? I know I sure do! They are fashionable, modest, easy to pair blouses with, and you can dress them up or down for Church, events, or everyday wear. So, when I was given the chance to review the 8 Gore Denim Skirt from Appropriate Apparel, I jumped at it:) There is also a giveaway but not of a skirt. This will be for the cutest pin/button that you will be able to choose from. Check out the pictures and my thoughts below.

Now understand that this skirt is homemade. Two sisters make up the team at Appropriate Apparel so I wasn't sure what to expect. You know how some people are when it comes to sewing. A thread is hanging out? No problem. They just leave it there. And believe me, I have seen some real interesting ones. Let me tell you, I had no worries!!! And I mean it! If I didn't know better, I would think this skirt was made at a factory or in a store by someone who does professional sewing. It comes complete with a tag, zipper, hook and eye closure, and all the seams are nice and even.

This is a very lightweight denim of which I was very glad. It is somewhat hot here and over the next few weeks, I didn't want to be sweating just to wear this skirt. Because I fell in love with it from the moment I opened the package. From the style, the extra length that I asked for, down to the slimming area at the waist and the fullness at the bottom, I was in love:) But, as I was saying, this is not hot at all. The denim is not a heavy material and there is plenty of air flow. See how loose it hangs at the bottom? Yet at the top it is nice and slim. I like how it does this.

Like I said above, the sewing is professional, the zipper works great and I love the material. This is definitely a skirt I will be wearing again and again. I have worn it a couple times since I got it and I am being very careful about wearing it for everyday stuff. Have to keep it nice and clean:)

So, anyone interested in a giveaway? You will be receiving one floral pin from Appropriate Apparel, your choice of design. Now these can be used as a pin on your top or you can add backing to make it into a hairpiece. My little sister loves doing that all the time with her bows. There are some really cute colors and you can match them to your outfits. One winner will receive one pin of their choice. Enter through the Rafflecopter Form below.

This giveaway will end 8/31. Winner will be chosen through Random.org and will have 48 hours to respond.
I received product for my review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.
