heaven on earth

heaven on earth

there was something so special when i put on this dress for the first time. it sparked a light in me that lead me to believe i was a daughter of God. it is a beautiful hand-sewn temple dress from house of order clothing. this particular dress is called english rose and it is part of new collection that just came out. as a latter day saint, we have temples where we go to worship the Lord. while we are in the temple we wear all white to show purity and equality. it's a reminder that we are leaving the world. (you can read more about this here)

i remember when i was working at the church's bookstore downtown last year, a lady from venezuela came in, not knowing much about the church. she asked about the temple across the street. i shared with her some pictures of the temples around the world and she noticed some white dresses being displayed. she asked about it and started to cry once i told her the symbolism in wearing white. she said she felt something that was overpowering and that made her cry because it was so special. that was the spirit! i was able to talk to her and share my testimony of temples. at the end of our conversation she was so happy she wanted to say a prayer with me, right there in the store! she thanked God for sending her to america to hear this news. i don't know where she is now but it was such a beautiful moment to share our beliefs with those from far away countries. 

i feel confident and comfortable in . it is such a beautiful dress and so comfortable! it's lined with a fabric so soft, i'd sleep in it if i could! the details of the sleeves are my favorite part because they are so unique. best of all, the dresses are custom made to fit your body. please visit their website and browse these beautiful gowns. i am so grateful for this company in making fashion forward temple dresses that make women feel beautiful.
