In early 2014, we as a Cents of Style team, decided to start a custom t-shirt line. Our hope was to create t-shirts for women and children that we would personally wear and put our kids in. We wanted them to be fun and fashionable, but I, personally, wanted one to reflect my passion for social issues and kindness. One of my favorite quotes is by Mahatma Gandhi and says, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” With those things in mind, I came up with the idea of “Be The Good.”
I love this idea that we each can make a difference in this world, even if it is small. We can impact the world just by the way we choose to live our everyday lives. We can increase the goodness and happiness around us by the small things we do each day, helping our children, smiling at a stranger, or choosing to be the type of person that benefits the world for good.
If you value honesty, kindness and service, be a person who exudes those qualities. Show the world your goodness by the way you act each day. Be the good. Do good. See a better world. #bethegood

We have so many beautiful photos from our lifestyle photo shoots that we use once or twice for a product promotion, and then they seem to be forgotten about, stashed away in a computer file. So, we thought we would share a few aesthetically pleasing ones with you. Our in house photographer Elizabeth Madsen does a beautiful job. Enjoy. :)
We are thrilled to have Monica of Fabulessly Frugal as our Cents of Style Guest Editor for August, 2013. Monica blogs on a daily basis about being two things we adore, fabulous and frugal. She fits right into our belief in fashion and affordability.
Monica invited us into her home a few weeks ago to take photos of her in some of her favorite Cents of Style accessories. Along the way, we got to see her gorgeous new kitchen and her two sweet boys. Monica's style is classic and clean. We asked Monica to answer a few personal style questions for us. Here is what she had to say about her own "Cents of Style."
Q- What are three words that best describe your style?
A- Chic, On-the-Go, Classy
Q- Who is your celebrity fashion crush?
A- Carrie Underwood
Q- What is your go to item of clothing, shoe, and accessory?
