I believe I said they were a
"Jesus Loving cheaper version of Anthropologie"
Which they are.
Which is awesome.
"Jesus Loving cheaper version of Anthropologie".
That's marketing gold right there.
I think I might have missed my calling....and some big exec missed an opportunity.
So what is Altar'd State all about?
Well....let me tell ya friends....
That's right...Altar'd State gives back!
Through what is known as Mission Mondays, the company donates 10% of net proceeds to various local charities every Monday. Altar’d State also supports communities by funding monthly employee volunteer hours and seeking vendor partners that share the company’s philosophy of giving back. For example, the Altar’d State brand, TOMS shoes, FashionABLE scarves, Krochet Kids and FEED are available at most locations and each offer something back to those in need.
I'm telling you. Altar'd State ROCKS.
Just ask my friend Erika.
She headed out to the store to check it out on my recommendation,
and now it's her new favorite too!
She came home with lots of goodies,
including an outfit to wear in her family's Christmas card picture!
and she is already out shopping up a storm!)
She is SO my friend. ;)
Erika fell in love with Altar'd State, and so will you!
Well, after I gave them my little shout out several weeks ago, I e-mailed them the link to my post, and they e-mailed me back! They told me they loved the blog (so sweet), offered me a $50 gift card (total score!), and said they wanted to partner up for a giveaway today and possible future giveaways!
I mean. COME ON! I was IN!
So, now for the formal introduction.
Altar'd State....these are my people.
People....this is Altar'd State.
You're about to become bff.
Going into their store is an experience.
And just in case you don't live in an area with a store, I thought you might want a little tour.
Their window displays are GORGEOUS!
They seriously make my heart race a little bit.
Is that wrong?
(floor on left, dressing rooms on right)
The clothes are UNIQUE and BEAUTIFUL.
Oh my....the jewelry.
but I managed to try on a couple of super cute items.
I loved this shirt.
I know, shocker.
You know mama loves a cardigan.
I'm wearing an Altar'd State cardigan, necklace, and cross body bag in this next picture.
It is so neat to be shopping and see things like this precious little cross that said
"God is so good!"
(Oh..and the neatest Christian music was playing in the background. I meant to ask the girl checking me out if I could buy the cd, but the little guy was anxious to get to Chick-Fil-A, so I forgot.)
You gotta love a store with HEART.
How you doin?
(I bet 98% of you said that in your head like Joey Tribiani.)
If you can't tell.....
I am just OVER THE MOON excited to be partnering up with this FANTASTIC store.
So, I gave you a tour of the store, now I want to show you some of my favorite things!
