Elegant Animal Print + Modest Brand Spotlight: Dainty Jewell’s

Dress: Dainty Jewell’s c/o l Shoes: Zara l Purse: Zara l Bracelet: Bella Beach l Belt: Madewell (similar)

As a modest fashion blogger who understands the struggle to find attractive clothes with appropriate coverage, I have so much respect and LOVE for women who seek to solve that dilemma by creating the clothing we need. Imagine my delight when I received an email from Charity Walter, founder of Dainty Jewell’s, introducing me to her modest fashion brand. The connection was instant.  I was immediately impressed with the history behind the brand. According to the company bio, Dainty Jewell’s began as a creative outlet for Charity when she was only 16 years old (seriously, I wish I was that productive at 16.). However, I was most impressed with Charity’s mission to produce beautiful clothing for other intentional women seeking to live godly lives that are reflected in their dress.

I could not wait to choose a cute dress from Dainty Jewell’s, and I was nearly set on the solid maxi dress when my eyes caught an animal print dress I couldn’t resist: That Leopard Dress, which features a rich leopard print and a black Peter Pan collar (and pockets!). Anyone who knows me also knows that I have a strong affinity for animal prints in classy silhouettes. This was an obvious choice.

I can confirm that the dress is as impressive in person as it is on the website. It’s well constructed, fully lined, and made of a thick rayon and polyester mixture.  While I love the thickness of the fabric, the dress is a bit too heavy for my lifestyle in California, where the average temperature in Winter still hovers in the high 60s. It is better suited for wear in places with colder temperatures. I did alter the dress to make it work for my short 5’3 frame, but it didn’t need much alteration (I received a size small dress, by the way).

I styled my dress with all black accessories — a black belt with a styled loop and black patent leather heels and bag from Zara (both pieces were purchased during Zara’s awesome winter sale!) The only accessory that wasn’t black was my dainty gold bracelet, which I received as a gift.

If you’re looking for an elegant modest dresses (with no layering required), bridesmaid dresses (the Night in Paris dress is my favorite) or plus sized dresses, check out Dainty Jewell’s. The price points are admittedly on the higher side for those of us on budgets. The That Leopard Dress retails for $98.95, so this is an investment. Fortunately, they have good customer service (Charity is very hands-on and responsive) and a good return policy for unworn merchandise.

Label me a fan of Dainty Jewell’s. Their Instagram account is as adorable as you’d expect, so be sure to follow it and check out the Dainty Jewell’s FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest as well to be notified of new collections and sales (!!!).

Discount alert: Charity has graciously offered 20% off the total purchase for my lovely readers! Use discount code: downtowndemure to take advantage of this deal. Procrastinators take note: this code expires in a week!

    I have been to their website and they do have really cute dresses! However, they are definitely too expensive for this cheapskate lol. I’m hoping you do a giveaway sometime 🙂

      Thank you, Laura! I admit, leopard print is an acquired taste that’s not for all (I used to hate leopard print, actually!). But DJ did a great job making it cute. If you check out the site, let me know what you think!
