TITL Apparel, Christian Boutique-My Review!

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing a fabulous company called TITL! TITL apparel exists to bring honor and glory to God and our savior Jesus Christ. TITL stands for Trust in The Lord and is more than a company to its founder, Stephanie Osborn, it is her ministry. She followed God's leading to recognize that there was a market for Christian apparel that had the high quality, feel and look of a designer, that also provides a platform for ministry. TITL, Christian Apparel was born!

For my review, I first had to head over to their website, TITL Apparel. I found the website to be quite easy to navigate. I found you can browse their products by scrolling over the word "Menu". Here the website has the products categorized by men's and women's clothing, jewelry, and even women's handbags! I was asked to choose either a shirt or a necklace and so I found a necklace I fell in love with, the Sterling Silver Christian Cross.

When my package arrived I could tell quite a bit of care and devotion was put into this necklace for delivery. It came wrapped in lovely purple tissue paper inside a special little bag made of shimmering tulle with drawstrings. A beautiful handwritten card from Stephanie really made me feel special and I knew instantly that this piece of jewelry was precious to her as well!


The TITL website describes this necklace as "Sterling Silver Christian Cross adorned with Amazonite and Sterling Silver Beads. Sterling Silver Long and Short Chain. Sterling Silver Toggle closure. 32”. Assembled with love in Nevada. Style 01-007." When my necklace arrived I could tell how this was "assembled with love." There are so many special details in this necklace! I love the sterling silver toggle closure with it's mini TITL tag.
Here is a picture up close.
The Amazonite stones are just gorgeous! I also love toggle closures. Once you know how to use them they are so simple and when I wore this I never had any fear that the necklace would come unclasped. Because of the size of the clasp I found it fairly easy to find when readjusting the necklace, although it never bothered me and I never felt it was there.
The sterling silver cross is beautiful. I found it to be a bit larger than I was expecting but as I wore the cross I loved to grasp it and hang onto it and let my fingers run over the intricate silver design, remembering how much it cost God to send His Son to die on the cross. I really treasure this piece! Here it is close up!

In my card, Stephanie described this necklace as having an asymmetrical line. I was a bit unsure about this design as I generally like my jewelry to be symmetrical! 

Here it is on me, asymmetrical.


Another view!


I wore the necklace to church yesterday and got some wonderful compliments! The ladies that complimented me wanted to touch the beautiful Amazonite stones and one wanted to see the clasp and how it worked. 


Another photo with the cross in view.


As you can see this is not a simple necklace! It is more of a centerpiece! My daughters LOVED it too! They wanted to know where I got it from and if it was my birthday! They took turns wanting to wear this necklace until I told them it was not a toy but "very special" and I had to put it away! I shared this with Stephanie on her Facebook page and I loved her comment:  " It is so nice to hear the special effect of that necklace. Purity of children is amazing...purity attracts purity. Have a happy day." 
That is what I really love about this company! Stephanie's blog is such a source of encouragement that goes way beyond her products. Her products are her tools to spread the message of Christ! I never would have connected "purity" with my daughters fighting over a necklace! But she is right, the necklace is special and when we keep our hearts for God we are setting ourselves apart and keeping ourselves pure before Him. Special equals pure and God is so worthy of our efforts to learn more about these qualities and teach them to our children.
So I've gone way over my review of this necklace, but I was completely moved that this was way more than just a necklace! It is a truly special work of art, from the heart of Stephanie and her company!
When I learned how much this necklace cost I was not surprised. It is well worth the $164. Knowing that a significant portion of the proceeds goes toward "seeking and saving the lost" makes this so much more worthy of my money as there is added value to the purchase! 
In her own words, Stephanie shares on her BLOG
"Please know that product pricing for TITL Apparel is at or below secular retailers pricing for like or exact items.  I take great care and invest much time verifying TITL Apparel is a great value."

If you are looking for a special gift for a special someone, head on over to TITL Christian Apparel! You'll be glad you did!
