Fabulously Featured: Fine Linen and Purple

Welcome to Catholic Sistas’ newest series, featuring some of our friends in the Catholic blogging world entitled Fabulously Featured which will run on Wednesdays. I have always wanted to introduce you to some new blogs to follow and support, but seriously lacked the time to put this together before now. In a Facebook group of fellow Catholic women bloggers, I asked ladies to answer some questions for this series, and they were all too excited to participate! I give you their answers in their own words. 🙂



Holly Vaughn and her partner in crime Sarah at Fine Linen and Purple are the hot topic of discussion today on Fabulously Featured. If you ever wondered where that What I Wore Sunday series came from, wonder no more, friends! These lovely ladies are the ones who made it popular to slog into your closet on Sunday and don your clothes in a new and bold way. I know I’ve been guilty through the years of wearing what friends call the “mom uniform” to Mass. Hey, if it’s clean, isn’t wrinkled {much}, and…well, that’s pretty much it, then I’m wearing it. Who doesn’t love a little friendly peer pressure if the end result is that we take some added time to put ourselves together for Mass?! Anyway, let’s get down to the nitty gritty and learn more about Fine Linen and Purple. 🙂

Fine Linen and Purple was established in 2013, but Sarah and I took it over in December of 2014 after being long time writers.


Faith and Fashion! We are most popular for the What I Wore Sunday Series.


We try to inspire women to live their faith in all areas of their life, and encourage them to feel good about themselves!  We also encourage women to dress for Mass in a way that makes them feel confident, and that is respectful to the Sacraments.


I love What I Wore Sunday.  It isn’t about showing off high end clothes and new fashion trends.  It’s about utilizing what you have in your closet to make yourself feel confident and comfortable, and getting ideas from each other!


Women and the Catholic Church.  This topic spoke to me from the beginning.  A lot of society said that as a Catholic woman I should feel oppressed – and I haven’t felt that way at all!


Sarah and I share ownership of the blog so that helps.  My biggest advice is to USE THE SCHEDULE BUTTON.  Write posts whenever you feel inspired and have time and schedule when you want them to post.


Women of all faiths, but our primary audience is Catholic women.

About Martina Kreitzer

Martina is a cradle Catholic, wife to Neil, and mother to seven kiddos here {and three in heaven}– 4/96-1/17. She decided to homeschool the kiddos in 2010 after many years in public schools and is currently transitioning out of homeschooling. She is the creator of Catholic Sistas which focuses on a feminine perspective of the Catholic Faith. The website was the result of an existing camaraderie by the contributors in a Catholic women’s group she created. She is also a Seal of Approval evaluator for the Catholic Writers Guild. Lest you think she spends all her time online, Martina has enjoyed getting out into the community by serving on the Pastoral Council from 2010-2013. She is constantly on the lookout to make her parish as welcoming as the small town she grew up in East Texas. This task is not easy given that St. William is the largest parish in the Austin diocese, serving well over twenty thousand parishioners. She loves Jesus, coffee, bacon, chocolate, photography, more bacon, evangelizing, and the company of those unafraid to use their sense of humor.
