Cleo Madison Dress Review + $25 Gift Card Giveaway

This post & giveaway is brought to you by CLEO MADISON.

I love finding places to shop (for me & my daughters!) that are not only affordable & fashionable, but also modest. That’s why I love when I find sites like CLEO MADISON. I’m so excited to introduce you to them today. Annnnnnd I have a giveaway for you, too! Eek! :)

From their site:

CLEO MADISON is a modest clothing boutique with a large selection of dresses, skirts, tops and swimwear run by Adam & Elizabeth Morgan.

Ever since getting married, Liz struggled with finding modest clothes. Skirts and dresses never seemed to be quite long enough. Shirts were often sheer, didn't come up high enough in the front or had wide collars. Even, if by some odd chance that she did find some, they were really expensive or not very stylish. Shopping in Utah, you're very limited on what you can buy and wear. What are your options when you can't find what you need? At one point, Liz was completely fed up with the whole process and decided to sew her own skirt. It wasn't very convenient and extremely time consuming.

In spring of 2016, Adam & Elizabeth decided to help other women who felt the same. Their goal is to help you find cute and affordable clothing with up to date styles that match your clothing needs and are good quality. You'll find that by shopping there that clothing can be fun and you can show your personality without compromising your values. Each item is handpicked and Liz often keeps some for herself! They are always working to find the best clothing items for their customers.

Make sure you check out CLEO MADISON right here. You can see some of my favorite looks below. Click the picture to shop. :)
