Heirs of Love Study

This month my sister and I have put together a devotional-scripture letter study called Heirs of Love. It is based on what we have been learning in our other devotionals. I would love to share with you more about it and invite you to join us!

The Topic

We are discussing what the meaning of life is in this study. In Ecclesiasties, Solomon asks some really deep questions and tests things out with all his resources and power. We look at that then dive deeper into the word and the Godly broard view to discover what the meaning of life is and answer some of his questions.

Then, from there we are going to discuss what this means to us as Christians and the calling on our lives. I don’t want to give too much away here because I really want to show you the scripture and walk you through it step by step. So, please join us. You can sign up here.

Freebies When You Sign Up

When you sign up, you get a planner page with what verses and lettering we will be going through. Also, you will get a free fashion illustration download.

Looking Forward to the Journey

I hope that you will join my sister and me on this journey. It will be a great discovery and hopefully be a balm to some of life’s deepest questions. In addition to the study, we will be calligraphy lettering each day and sharing via Instagram out lettering. Here is my lettering from Day 1:

Join us on Instagram, @sharrette.co and @sharretteco_design to see the lettering we are sharing through-out the month and a few notes from the study. Feel free to tag us and use #heirsoflove.

See you there!

A Boutique I’m obsessed with and why you should be too

Have you ever fallen in love? Yes? What about Fallen in love with a store or boutique? I have, I’ve found one I’m obsessed with. I love 90% of their clothing. I’m going to tell you about why I am obsessed with this boutique and why you should be, too.

“A man will never love you or treat you as well as a store. If a man doesn’t fit, you can’t exchange him seven days later for a gorgeous cashmere sweater. And a store always smells good. A store can awaken a lust for things you never even knew you needed. And when your fingers first grasp those shiny, new bags…”
― Sophie KinsellaConfessions of a Shopaholic

First of all, can we talk about how amazing Confessions of a Shopaholic is as a movie? It is such a fun and light-hearted movie! I love movies that inspire me so much that I end up reading the book. That movie was one that I read the book after seeing.

The Boutique

Vici Collective – How I found them

I found Vici Collective through a Fashion Blogger on Instagram. They were wearing some of their clothing and tagged the boutique in their post. Of course, I followed the link over and after scrolling through their feed I was hooked!

Since I have started following them I have made several purchases of clothing.

 This winter my go-to top has been this button down thermal. I wear it every week at least once. I feel in love with it from Urban Outfitters but I actually bought mine in a Mulled Wine color from Vici Collection. It is very soft and comfy, and the price was more affordable than at Urban. 

Other items I’ve purchased from Vici Collection are a pair of jogger pants, some dresses, an off the shoulder oversized cardigan sweater, and a pair of leggings. 

Why I love them

One reason I love them is that their Instagram Feed is always legit. They are always adding new items to their store, and so they are posting new items to their Instagram feed daily. Just go check them out here, and you will see what I’m talking about. 

I guess that is what keeps me coming back to them. They post high-quality photos and make their clothes really appealing to my style and aesthetic. 

Things to Watch For

The first time I purchase from them, I got these super cute zipper leggings. I was so disappointed though. When I received them, I had expected them to be a beautiful blush color and they were very brown. 

I’ve seen other complaints on their Instagram that the filters they are using are very deceiving on what you will receive. So, be cautious when purchasing! 

The good thing is they have a lot of influencers and you can see a “truer” version on the clothing item from them. 

When I buy

I usually buy clothes from them when they go on sale. They have flash sales that they will put clothes at $20 or under. That is when I have gotten most of my clothes. Shipping is pretty fast and not too expensive. 

All in all, I would recommend them but make sure to just buy with caution because of the color changes. 

If you would like to check out other clothes I’m obsessed with, check out this blog post about shein.com. It’s a review I did on ordering from them. 

Until Next time!

Devotional Corner – The Beginning

I’ve been consistently spending time doing quiet time the past two weeks, and I thought I would implement a Devotional Corner every now and then on my blog.

Welcome! Thanks for joining me!

Here is a little background on what I’ve been studying:

I’ve been inspired by Amanda, @movethemountains. She had a January Lettering and Devotional challenge that my sister and I joined in called Daughters of Promise. I’m still going through all the days and listening to the devotionals she did as a companion to them. They are so powerful and really speaking to my heart, as well as my sister’s heart.

In addition to that devotional, I’ve been going through one called The Call by Amy Groeschel, She is Pastor Craig Groeschel’s wife. She put together this study for something called Sisters. I’m not quite sure the entire background on the study, but I started going through it with my sisters. We watched one video together, and then I started on the daily devotionals.

Wow, God spoke straight to my heart through this study! It’s been answering some questions I’ve been pondering the past couple of years. Let me share my questions with you.

My Questions

I love the book of Ecclessiaties. I often wonder the meaning of life. What is my purpose, what is the point of making money? It never satisfies and nothing I’ve done or seen can satisfy me because inevitable I always want more. How can this be all there is to life? Always wanting more?

I discussed this and more with my friend, and we just basically go around in a circle. I knew in my heart that my purpose in life is to know God and make him know, but why does that feel like it isn’t enough? What does that even mean? It sounds so cliche to me, and I felt like I was still missing something. I told this to God and decided to also do a study on Ecclesiastes, maybe I was missing something.

More to Come – Stay Tuned

Have you ever felt like there was more to life and you were missing the meaning of it all? Here is a post I wrote about feeling discouraged that might help you. I hope you will Stay tuned for my next devotional corner, I’m going to share exactly what God’s been saying to me and how he has been answering my questions.

Feel free to subscribe so you get a notification when I post the next one! Comment below some of the questions you have had about life, I’d love to pray about them for you.

A Review of My Recent Shein.com Purchases

A Review of Shein Clothes

I have seen the shein.com ads for a long time now and have wondered about the quality, shipping, and sizes of the pieces. The prices are so reasonable and the styles so cute, I finally decided to take the plunge and order a few items. This is a review of my recent purchase and whether you should order from them as well.

What did I purchase?

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I am pregnant right now. Buying pants or skirts were out of the question. I wouldn’t be able to wear them for months still, and who knows what size I’ll be after the baby is born. I did end up going through their selection and save some to my wishlist for later, though. Hey, a girl can dream!

For the shirts that I ended up buying, I tried to find styles that I thought would look good both now and postpartum. The shirts that I bought were simple. Some were flowy and some were just normal t-shirts. Plus, I couldn’t resist this graphic t-shirt that has the word Nope on it.

It is always difficult to gauge what size to get when you haven’t purchased from the store before and shopping online. Plus, add being pregnant and it all just becomes a shot in the dark. I ended up getting a medium on everything. It seemed the safest bet in the end.

Receiving the Goods

One thing I was nervous about when I ordered was that shipping would take a month to get to me. I have bought from other similar sites and it did take that long, but this is not the case with Shein. It only took about a week, and everything was there.

When I was originally shopping on the site, I was going back and forth so much on what I wanted to buy that I was adding and removing stuff from my cart for several days. In the end, I didn’t double check the number of each item because somehow I ended up with 3 of the same shirt. I originally thought it was their mistake, but alas no. I had paid for all three and definitely had to do a return order.

Other than that, everything was there. Now for the fittings.

Trying Everything On

Even though everything I ordered was a medium, somehow there was a wide range in the size of everything. At the bottom of each item on their site, people do upload pictures of the clothes and review them. That is actually very helpful.

This blush shirt, that I ended up with 3 of, is super long in the back. I love the fit but I’m worried that it will look excessively long in the back when I’m not pregnant. We will see. I decided to keep one of them and send the other two back.

I also purchased this green shirt with a cute x detail at the neckline. Besides that, it is a pretty simple shirt. It seems slightly short, but that could just be my belly making it shorter. I’ll have to update this once I am postpartum. The material seems a little cheap, but not enough that I felt the need to send it back. It is soft and subtle.

Updated:

Finally, the last two shirts I bought were this Nope shirt in Black and a navy blue shirt that says wifey. I love both but I have not worn the wifey shirt once. It is really long, and I haven’t found myself drawn to it to wear.

So, now being postpartum, I wear the green and black shirt the most. I don’t wear the blush shirt hardly any and I don’t think I’ve worn the wifey shirt once. It’s a shame too because I hate spending money on things that I don’t end up wearing.

Conclusion on Shein

All in all, I like the purchases that I got from Shein. I wish I had returned the blue wifey shirt only based on the length. I feel the quality of the clothes is comparable to the price they charge.

One negative is that I think they only give you one free return, so I don’t think I will rush off to order more clothes from them. There is such a variant on the clothes, that I would be nervous about each item and how I liked it.

If you want clothes that are cheap and look good, then shop here. If you want high-quality products for great value, I’m not sure that Shein is the place to buy from.

Have you bought from Shein? What was your experience? Did you like the clothes?
