Meet Claire  →

I am a wife and mother that is passionate about sharing content that helps us each live a beautiful and virtuous life. As an etiquette instructor, I love to seek out the beautiful things that surround us. You can often find me making a meal with my husband, building LEGOs with my son, and reading a good book - all in a beautiful dress! Thank you for being a part of this community, I am so happy you are here!

Insights on Literature, etiquette, and Beauty from a Catholic wife and mom

Thank you, Paris Bloom, for sponsoring this post!

Paris Bloom is a beautiful new ethical brand that just debuted their first collection! Being a brand committed to ethical standards, their goal is to promote the dignity of all women, from their employees to those wearing their dresses. Each dress is made from start to finish in the USA by workers who are creating these dresses in a safe environment and who receive a fair, living wage.

Paris Bloom dresses are modest and feminine. Because each dress is designed exclusively by the Paris Bloom team, it is completely unique! Their dresses are both practical and flattering and can easily transition from a casual gathering to a fancy date or night out. There are maternity and nursing friendly dress options, too!

I had such a difficult time choosing which dress to get because I loved each one! Their Fall/Winter collection is stunning and the perfect way to enter into this season! I decided to get the Adeline in Blush from the Rose Collection! The fabric, a Ponte De Roma knit, is so comfortable! I love the Peter Pan neckline and the feminine, soft blush color. I also love the Alice, Madeline, and Jackie!

Paris Bloom has generously offered a 15% off discount code for our readers and followers! Just enter code ‘FP15’ at checkout! Thank you, Paris Bloom!
