Art! Not Fashion??

I’m all for creativity honestly.

Read my title again and tell me what you think in the comment section.

As for me, what do I believe? LOL! You don’t even need to ask, if you follow my blog, you already know I believe fashion has no limits and I always feel some satisfaction when I combine pieces in manners people would never think to try and they come out effortlessly beautiful.

All the time I feel I am definitely NOT using my brain up to even 5% the capacity God has given me. I feel there is so so so much you and I can do. Am I wrong to believe so? I think not! From flying planes to dancing to blogging to professional swimming and lots lots more…. I know we can do anything…. I know if we put our minds to something, we are going to do it and do it well, excellently well…. Phil 4:13

13 Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am. The Message

Did that scripture just blow your mind? It blows mine away all the time.
I can do anything, everything, ALL things! ALL things. ALL! Not SOME!!

In my state of pondering and wondering, I’m having all these midnight thoughts, morning meditations and random midday wanderings, on how best to explore my full potential, enter Jaru, a fellow MUA, creative director, dress maker (she made a wedding dress overnight – YES – overnight), hair maker, set designer, costume designer and so much more; into my life and she definitely challenges me to put more effort into displaying my creative juices. Thanks Jaru.

We go back and forth on designs and she shows me one. I’m sold!

Kinging; as a Queen

So lately I’ve been meditating.

Meditating on Ps 23:1. ‘The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want’. ‘Want’! Not ‘Need’

Do you know what that means? We are not talking about basic needs for survival. WANT!!!! Chew on that – this is not a mere blog post!

What do you want? An island. A Ferarri, A great job? Whatever! ‘Want’ not ‘Need’.

That’s like an open cheque. Do you know where the real problem lies? It lies in your mind – your mindset – not daring to dream nor really really want. Before the thought even creeps into your minds, your fear kills it. But guess what? It is really already given to you because again Phil 4:19, all needs (wants) have been provided according to heavenly riches – immeasurable!

Imagine you are royalty – a queen – born into countless riches, everything you want, you have. You are clueless to what lack really means, because you’re a queen. This is the best part of this post for me – telling you, your imaginations are a reality, your Heavenly Father is a King, YOU are His heir, YOU are a QUEEN. Can we just go into the world and start living it out like yesterday?

Yas! We are Queens

Hmmm, I shall NOT want!

IMG_3686

Always told mum at age 5 that I want to be a Queen when I grow up!

IMG_3685

Little did I know, I have been, am and always will be one!

IMG_3691

Graced with favor, divine blessings and abundance

I’m all for re-styling – in my creative way, I figured you can use as a neck piece too. Thank me later!

Velvet dress-piration

Side story because I believe the aim of my fashion is to motivate, teach, and pass the message of creative fashion while being stylish.

Here’s a short story culled from: https://wizdompath.wordpress.com/2008/03/05/an-old-cherokee-tale-of-two-wolves/

One evening an old Cherokee Indian told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, ‘My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.’

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: ‘Which wolf wins?’

The old Cherokee simply replied, ‘The one you feed.’

In church today, my pastor added that we should be sure to feed ourselves with God’s word. Its okay to lose everything BUT your mind.

Relating this to the outfit, since I feel you can use this as your Sunday/ Friday outfit to church, might as well share somethings I learned in church today.

Stun in Peplum

Ladies (all shapes and sizes) get in here!!! LOL!

We all love dresses that accentuate our curves. I love the way peplums have the potential to flatter our plus size curves, enhance our size 0 curves and accentuate every figure in between.

If you haven’t noticed, I love me a good peplum in any form, dress, belt, shirt, skirt and even pants.

I designed the dress below and my tailor friend made it for me. Her deets are below.

How do you rock yours?

99 problems, a good outfit ain’t 1!

Read the following story (I hope you do) or scroll down to outfit pictures:

Story was told of a pastor who told everyone in his congregation to pen down all their problems in life and drop the sheets of paper at the altar.

Boy! Did they write and write and write and laid everything at the foot of the cross – altar – the aim was to let go and let God takeover.

In a twist of things and to teach them gratitude, he then asked them to come back to the altar and pick any random sheet (knowing it would be impossible to pick the exact same one they dropped). So everyone picked someone Else’s.

He then urged them to open the sheets and read the problems they had in their hands. Shouts of exclamations filled the chapel as they all realized what other people were facing seemed a million times worse than what they themselves were going through.

“I’ll take mine back” they all started saying, I can’t deal with these things I’m reading. The pastor had a hearty laugh knowing no further sermon was needed on gratitude as he asked them to all drop back the sheets at the altar.

You see, while life isn’t perfect, and problems may come and go, you have to learn to let go and let God and as difficult as it is to be grateful in the midst of problems, you have to train yourself to be.

My life changed when I started thanking God for my problems and what He was trying to teach me through them and when I started giving out literally the last money and things on me at my poorest and my most broke times.

In an attempt to relate this story to my fashion – hope this works –

1. I’ll say life isn’t perfect but your outfit can be.

2. 99 problems but a good outfit isn’t one

Duh!

Waistcoat series

Who said anything about boring work wear? Nopes! Not me.

C’mon you spend most of your time doing some form of work, can we afford to let that be boring? Naaaah!

So some of my latest wardrobe favorites have been my waistcoats I like to call kimonos for some reason.

Style it like:

Red on white,
