Being a mom doesn’t mean that you can’t be stylish and looking and feeling good about yourself. Yes, I confess that sometimes while at home, I’m in my yoga pants or PJ’s until I have to go run an errand or pick up my boys at school.
I sometimes just grab a pair of jeans and a shirt, and off I go.
I don’t have fancy clothes or expensive clothes for that matter. I’m someone who doesn’t really enjoy going out shopping. Please tell me I’m not the only one that doesn’t like to go to the malls or stores and shop for clothes. It’s not always that I don’t have time, but I won’t make time for this task.

I know, what a party pooper!
It just seems so daunting having to go fight the crowds and especially when it’s too cold or too hot, Ha! That’s why when I heard of Facebook parties and shopping from the comfort of your home, I thought this was great.
I mean, I know that I can shop online for clothes, but it’s not the same as trying on the clothes and fitting properly.
I was sent a complimentary set of Agnes & Dora (non affiliate link) by Angela, whom we’ll be learning about next. Her A&D sisters were looking for collaborators in one of our Facebook groups and I thought, why not?
I had heard of this company but wasn’t sure what it was all about so I decided to put my name out there and was lucky to have been one of the chosen.
After I received my packet, I immediately opened it because I really wanted to check out what A&D was all about. I opened the cute rose bag and was greeted by patterned leggings and a solid blueish Dolman Tunic.
I’m still learning the names of the products. Oh, and also inside was a handwritten note by Angela, which I think was a nice gesture.
It was surprisingly a great combination, which I was afraid to get one that didn’t fit my style.
What I liked about the set was not only the style and look, but the feel was great too! The softness of this clothes is amazing. I couldn’t believe how soft and stretchy it is.
If I were to go back to when I was pregnant, I would’ve bought only these types of clothing. If you’re expecting, this is the perfect type of clothing since it’s super soft and stretchy. You could easily wear it with your baby bump and after you have your baby.
I just wish I would’ve known about them years back!
The set includes this blue Dolman Tunic as mentioned before which has 3/4 sleeves and has a fitted waist for a versatile style. You could wear it in different ways and I was glad Angela sent me a picture of how to wear it and pair it with.
This is a great gesture to her customers. You don’t have to wear it only with leggings but also jeans, skirts, tucked in, or out.
I wore it just as it was sent to me with some booties which I should’ve worn black stockings. Oh well, it was cool outside so I thought this was perfect. The clothing is not only soft and stretchy but also great for upcoming Spring and Summer weather.
I just liked how the tunic hugs my hips and booty.
I also paired it with pieces from my Chloe + Isabel boutique like the Monarch Convertible Pendant Necklace and the Bead + Ribbon Multi-Wrap Bracelet which also can be used as a necklace or choker.
Shameless plug here if you wish to shop my boutique for these pieces:
And now to meet Angela.
Tell us a little about yourself.
Would you consider yourself an introvert or extrovert? Why?
Tell us about your products/services? How did you come about this idea? How did you begin?
Did you have startup costs?
Did you have any bumps on the road at any time? How have you overcome setbacks?
How do you self-develop?
How do you come up with the many different pieces/services?
For many that are thinking of becoming entrepreneurs, what advice would you give them?
How do you balance work and life?
You don’t have to create or design your own products to make money from home, you can choose companies that meet your goals and expectations and go from there. Like Angela stated, “don’t expect to make a profit the first month” but do continue pursuing your goals and dreams.
Whether it’s making your own products or being a merchandiser or representative for a company that gives you the freedom to do with your business what you wish to.
Also, just want to give thanks to my sisters who helped with these photos. One was the photographer and the other was helping me pose as I’m not photogenic or a model.
P.S. Have you bought from Agnes & Dora? Do you prefer leggings or jeans/dress pants?
