You can still bring the romance of HolyClothing apparel into your every day wardrobe. The same beautiful colors and exquisite details can be found in tops that look equally as good with dress pants as they would with your favorite jeans.  This makes them great for both a day at the office and an evening relaxing with friends at the pub.

Are you a larger woman and feeling jealous of all these beautiful clothes? I know, as someone who is overweight, that I often am envious of the lovely apparel that others can buy and wishing I could find it in my size. No need for all the envy anymore… HolyClothing carries sizes from Small to 5X!

Arwen Square Neck Renaissance Medieval Princess Gown Dress - Dresses 2013-02-26 17-31-09Personal Experience: I first discovered HolyClothing when a friend shared one of their photos on Facebook. It was a stunning golden-colored dress with extraordinary embroidery and dramatic sleeves. They had named it Arwen. It reminded me of the beautiful dresses I would see when we visited the Renaissance Faire.

I just don’t know where to start in describing this dress. Fair warning: I’m likely to start gushing now. ;) First, I should comment on the shipping. The dress ships all the way from India and arrived within just a couple of days. It was delivered by our local DHL… the one delivery company in our area that still hand-delivers a package. It was a nice touch.

004From the moment I pulled the dress out of the package, I knew my love of HolyClothing had not been misplaced. I received Arwen (the dress mentioned above) in a color that is as heavenly as the name implies… Blue Divine! The hand-dying is of amazing quality. It was a bit darker than it appeared in their product shots, but I preferred the actual color of what is aw online. I truly wish I could better capture the color on camera.

The rayon/ viscose fabric drapes beautifully. It feels heavy when you are holding the garment, but lighter than air when you are wearing it. The detail work of embroidery and stitching is so well done. Every detail of this garment makes you feel as though the craftsmen at HolyClothing truly love their work.

indressI was already in love and I hadn’t even put it on yet! Now, anyone following me for some time knows I’m working on the ol’ waistline (and a myriad of other parts), so I ordered a size smaller. The particular cut of this design combined with the lace-up back proved to be very forgiving and I was able to try it on… so close to a perfect fit! Even with a bit of snugness in a few places, it still made me feel beautiful.

I am already looking forward to showing it off at the Ren Faire this summer… and any other excuse I have to wear this lovely dress. :)

Every woman is on the lookout for clothes that make them feel great. If these clothes are beautiful and affordable too, it’s like finding the Holy Grail of clothing. HolyClothing is that Holy Grail!

Pros: Beautiful, quality, hand-crafted garments at amazing prices. Very fast shipping.

Cons: I really don’t have a single one!
