Happy Sunday! I've had such an amazing weekend and if you reading this I hope you have had a great one too. I was inspired by the sermon today by my Pastor Gerald Mandrell of Life Changers COGIC. "Take the Limits Off."
I share with you this one thought: "God has so much invested in you to make you successful. We have to see the impossibilities disappearing and the only thing that is left is the possible."
"Prints, Pearls, & Possibilities," was inspired by that thought and the dress I wore today. The dress I wore today was thrifted. I would define thrifitng as purchasing an item either from a thrift store, a boutique that sale's recycled clothing, or the Goodwill. When I am picking out what I am going to wear, I usually end up wearing one item that is thrifted. The thrifted item could be a dress, shirt, heels, or an accessory.
The thing I LOVE about thrifting is that I can re-fashion an item or something that may have been old is now new to me. The dress I wore today was a bold leopard print. I loved the fit and the darts that gave the dress a slightly pleated look. I accessorized with pearls and pink clear the way pointy pumps. Here is the completed look:
As you can see the print is bold and to focus on it, I was very minimal with my accesories. This dress could be paired with numerous bright colors such as yellow, blue, and red. When wearing prints don't be afraid to add a pop of color. If you want the print to be the focal point keep your accesories to a bare minimum.
Here is a similar look:
Leopard Printed Dress
Layered Pearl Necklace
Pink Clear The Way Pointy Pumps
When thrifting take your time and look for unique items. Remember its not about the clothes you wear but how you rock it!!
~Embrace God, Love You, and be Fashioned For Hem!
