Prints, Pearls, & Possibilities
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:
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!
