Holy Clothing

It is amazing on what you can stumbled upon while being on facebook one day. I discovered Holy Clothing because two woman in my church (sisters) kept talking about it on the social media site. I was curious to know what the fuss was all about and decided to google the name. I quickly discover their site - www.holyclothing.com – and was amazed to see what this family-owned business offered for women. On the site I discovered amazing fashion of exclusive handmade dresses, tops, pants and skirts in Renaissance, Gypsy, Boho and Peasant styles.

These clothes seemed to bring the feminine side of women, look amazingly comfortable and didn’t reveal too much. I decided to see if there was a possibility to review an item. I was delighted to get a rapid positive response to my request. I could pick any item I wanted to review.

My eyes had already been attracted to a specific skirt that I had found totally adorable – the midnight black Talia Ruffle Peasant Skirt.

79376012152710455_ns266kDi_c This skirt has a fairy style with the petals descending in a graceful swirl which envelop the curves on a woman’s body. This skirt is appropriate for any event in your life as it is very versatile. It will flutter softly while you walk. Made of 100% rayon and viscose textile, this skirt is ethically handmade in India.

Now since I was receiving a package from HolyClothing, I asked them if it could be possible for me to order a top to go with the skirt and get it shipped at the same time. It was possible so I decided to get a marvelous Grace Bias Cut Boho Top in the burgundy wine color.79376012152710457_cZAaVKPp_c

This particular top can be worn on her own or combined with other pieces. It is a classic top that will be versatile with anything you wear – whether jeans or skirt. It has a flattering v-neck with an elegant touch of satin on the border. Grace will flatter any figure.

Again this item is made of 100% rayon/viscose textile and is ethically handmade in India.

Thoughts on the Holy Clothing products

First of all, I must say that I am really impressed with the rapidity of the ordering process. I confirmed the order last Thursday and I got a confirmation that the items were shipped on Saturday. By Tuesday late afternoon, I had the package in my hands. I immediately opened it and proceed to do a little fashion show to my husband and kids. My husband immediately said he really liked it and strongly suggested that I wear the top that evening for an event we were attending. The boys were saying that it looked good and my sweet little 4 year old daughter thought the clothes were for her when she saw them out of the bag (more thoughts on her comments later!).

I particularly like the material and the fact that the clothes are vey comfortable. The item I prefer is definitely the skirt. Wearing it makes me feel stylish to say the least because it is out-of-the-ordinary. The skirt is very versatile and you can wear anything with it. I wore it last Saturday to two birthday celebrations of friends of ours. I really like the way it flows when you walk and how it wraps around you when you sit down.

imageThe top is very comfortable as well though I find that I need to wear a detailed piece of clothing under to make it a bit more modest. Fortunately I had such an item in my drawers. Now I would like to have one in black as well to match the skirt when I wear them both together. I love the long sleeves on it because in Canada we can get cool days/evenings during the Fall-Winter-Spring seasons.

Let’s get back on the first reaction of my daughter when she saw the clothes out of the bag. She asked quite innocently “Is it for me?” to which daddy said “No honey it’s not always for you. This time it’s for mommy.” But it got me thinking… Wouldn’t it be totally adorable to have versions of the women skirts, tops, dresses, pants in smaller sizes so that mommy and her daughter(s) can wear the same things? Jasmine at age 4 really loved the Talia skirt. I think having a smaller version with tightening string at the waist because not every girl is the same size and my Jasmine is quite petite would be seriously adorable. So this is my suggestion for HolyClothing – “Would you consider creating a girl version of these clothes of your because I think that teaching purity and modesty should start at a young age? If you do, please let me know because I have a daughter who would love to review some items!”

HolyClothing can be followed on facebook as well. Doing so will give you immediate news on sales and new items arriving on their web store.

  1. I really like the skirt! The top would probably look really nice with jeans or dress pants! I'm not sure I'd wear both items together though. Seems like lots of fabric all together. I will check out the website, I’m intrigued!

    I like when you get free clothes, it's fun!

  2. I love holy clothing, and I agree, there should be children's sizes. And also maybe smaller sizes, as I am pretty petite as well, and the smalls are a bit long on me.
