Sisters, Come on in and grab a cup of tea. Let's talk about ...Clothes, Clothes, Clothes.
If you don't already know I love fashion and looking fabulous and yes, I am a Christian. I can spend hours shopping or window shopping. I think I read more fashion and fitness blogs. I can really appreciate a stylish look. I appreciate well made clothes and I love texture. I also love natural fiber materials.
Growing up it seems like many Christian had issues with one being stylish. I am not even talking about the miniskirts I use to love wearing. If you wanted to dress nice many acted like it was a sin. I am not even talking about worshipping things and material things. I am talking about if you wanted to dress in anything besides a dress to your knees. It seems like one couldn't be fashionable and Christian. The two don't have anything to do with the other.
I still love clothes and fashion. I love to look my very best. Its even harder today because I am now plus size and the market for fashionable outfits have improved but it still not where it should be because some plus size fashion are straight slutty and cheap. I never wear by boobs out no matter my size.
My style is Christian Classy & Chic. I love Italian shoes but I can't wear stilettos they are too high. I have lots of design ideas in my head for a swimsuit line because I have to redo most suits I buy. At work I wear classic with a tint of whimsical. At church I wear traditional with a twist. I still love hats and dresses. On the weekends I like to experiment with everything.
I must admit it was a lot harder to reduce than I thought. I felt good giving my prized pieces to Suits for Success an organization that help women getting back into the work environment.
I am thinking about adding a few Fashion looks to the blog. I hope you all will embrace the changes. I am a modern Christian and I deal with every day issues like what to wear at the pastors wife annual garden brunch. I am currently trying to lose these 16 pounds in 6 weeks. I am not sure where I am right now because I don't want to read the scale after my first weigh in.
I have a goal dress I want to fit in. Its so incredible how one can get caught up in every day life that one begins to forget the little things that use to make them happy like matching up your outfits.
Married women have to be careful and avoid being frumpy and making excuse for getting in that I don't care pattern. Sweat pants are for exercising and if your in the house then that is not the time to look totally a mess.
You use to dress nice and look cute to catch your husband. You can't just forget that part of you. You have to take the time to look good for your husband. When he glance over at you he want to be happy that he will be with you for the rest of his life.
Are your clothes really dated not vintage? Clothes make you feel good or bad. Since we are trying to improve our health and wellness for the next 6 weeks. I want to take a moment and evaluate you own situation. What is going on with you and your look? How about your clothes?
