Is it truly possible for a woman to find clothing that is beautiful and comfortable as well as feminine and modest? And affordable, too? I recently found a company that gives me a resounding ‘Yes!’ to all these questions. A friend introduced me to Riverside Clothing Company and I am excited to introduce you!

I love the story behind this company. Janeen, with the support of her husband and their six boys, took a leap of faith a few months ago and started Riverside Clothing Company. Her goals from the start have been to provide clothing that is “Designed with Style … Designed for Comfort … and Designed with our Customers in Mind.”
Lovely, soft fabrics and clothing designed for the busy woman? Yes, please! I contacted Janeen with questions about her clothing and to see if we might work together. I wanted to see first-hand if her clothing items fulfilled the descriptions and I wanted to share the news with my readers – if I was pleased I knew you would be too!
After chatting with Janeen, I browsed her online boutique and made up a wish list. I’m pretty sure half the items available made it onto my list. I showed her what pieces I was most interested in and asked her to put together a couple outfits so I could give you an honest review, from my own personal experience and opinion.
Join me as I walk you through my little Riverside Clothing fashion show. I’ll share my impressions and opinions, then at the end of this post I’ll tell you more!
I’ve been on the look out for pieces I can add to my wardrobe that give me a lot of options. This pretty tunic has bell sleeves and nice drape below the waistline. The comfy fabric goes nicely with jeans, or could be worn with a skirt as well. Janeen also sent a pair of Palazzo Loose-Fit Pants (with yoga band) in army green. Worn together these two pieces make a really nice outfit, whether going out or staying home.
Because it is currently mid-winter here in the northeast, I was happy to find I can easily layer a tank, cami or even a lightweight turtleneck under it.
I love the top. It’s so soft. And makes me feel nice. It’s versatile so I know I will get plenty of wear out of it. I decided to send the pants back. I am short-legged, and the fit was too long and not really the style I’m comfortable with. Super cute, but just not me.
Next, I tried on this Black Floral Swing Dress – WITH POCKETS! I gave a shout when I found out it had pockets – WHOOP! The soft, lightweight dress is long-sleeved, the hem hitting right at my knee. I don’t often wear a skirt or dress that short, so I didn’t think this would be for me. I was wrong. I ended up wearing it all day! With leggings or tights it can be worn in cooler weather. With flats or sandals and bare-legged you could wear this in spring, fall or even cool summer evenings.
I really liked the way my pearls looked with this dress – perfect for date night or Sunday morning Church services. Janeen also sent the Grey Open-Body Sleeveless Vest, which gave this dress a more casual but still beautiful look. And, surprise, surprise – I’m keeping them both! I do have one problem, or maybe two – my daughters. They both lit up when we started pulling pieces out the box the day they arrived. My 12 year old has worn this vest (my vest) several times. It looks really cute with a belt buckled around the waist. My 17 year old likes the layer look and this vest adds one last layer of style to her outfits. How fun to be able to f
ight over share stylish clothing with your daughters!
Have you seen enough floral yet? No? Me either! Are you seeing a theme? I love all things feminine and floral. I asked Janeen about this Black Floral Long Cardigan with 3/4 length sleeves because I knew I could wear it over many different outfits. I could wear it over my burgundy tiered skirt with a dark red scarf – did I mention it’s been cold here in the northeast? It also looks great with a black sleeveless sweater and black skirt. These, along with the black infinity scarf are already in my closet so it was fun to mix and match and see what new outfits I could come up with.
This cardigan is very pretty, soft and flowing. It fits nicely but I decided to send it back. I had already chosen two floral pieces that I really love, so I’m letting this go back to make room for some other things.
But wait! If floral is not your thing, there so much more available. Riverside Clothing Company has a nice selection of non-floral pieces as well. Our daughter celebrated her high school graduation this month and chose to wear this Camo-Print Cold Shoulder Tee to the party. The soft Spandex material lets it drape in a flattering manner and the high-low hem makes it really fun. The theme for her party was “Family Game Night” and she wanted to be comfortable enough to enjoy playing games with all our friends, but still wear something cute and stylish. I think she pulled it off. And, yes, she’s keeping it.
And then, when a girl wants to dress things up a bit, this Navy Bell Sleeve Laced-Front Dress is just the thing! It’s feminine and comfortable. Esther chose a red cami and gray leggings to wear under this soft jersey knit dress, for a semi-casual look on a cold day. She can easily pair it with a shimmery cami and her favorite strappy heels for dinner out or a special occasion.
We purchased this dress directly through the Online Boutique. The checkout process was easy and fast and our purchase was packaged and shipped quickly. Great service!
The items featured in this post range in price from $22.99 to $37.99. That is very affordable, especially when I’ve compared to some of the clothing sellers I’ve met at recent events I’ve attended. Personally, I am wearing sizes medium or large and the pieces my daughter ordered are size small. Would you like to see more? The full inventory for Riverside Clothing Company can be seen on their website, where you can purchase directly or contact the owners with your questions and requests. Janeen gives great descriptions for each piece and even models a good many pieces herself so you can see first hand what the clothing looks like on a real, everyday person. She is a sweetheart and has given me fast and friendly service.
