5 Thrifting Tips for Christian Girls (+Try On Haul!)

 

My sisters and I used to groan every Saturday before church. They were loud, audible ones meant for our parents to hear from their bedrooms.

 

We had the “typical” issue: not having a clue what to wear.

 

One side of ours closets were extremely dressy with “church clothes” and the other side were “school clothes.” We wanted more options, options that served more than one purpose. Plus, we were so over the whole dress to impress shebang. We wanted to slay, of course, but we wanted to do it our way. Not to say our styles weren’t our own — they were. We just wanted out of the shmancy dress culture.

 

Thrifting was a saving grace. Okay, I’m being dramatic. We’ve only been a few times. We were introduced a couple of years ago and the thrifting world welcomed us into the land of mixing modern quality and vintage. Skirts and blazers and jumpsuits galore.

 

Sunday’s best traditionally means going all out in your best suit or dress and fancy heels but I’m here to show you, thrifting is a viable option to take on an unique, fashion-forward look for church.

I celebrated my 24th birthday last week and man, I feel so free! I’m so liberated by what God has graced me with and what He saw fit to take away. I have only grown stronger in knowing who I am and who I am called to be: a bold daughter of the King whose life reflects His light.

Look at the Brighter Side of Things

 

I’m a realist with a dash of optimist. Sometimes, it switches. I become super optimistic with a sprinkle of realistic. Either way, I think it’s a pretty good combination. Like anyone though, it’s easy to get pulled down into pessimism when facing unbelievable obstacles in life.

Embrace Your Bold | Sponsored by Banana Republic

My mom always tells me how shocked she is at who I am today and I always laugh.  Ya see, I used to be extremely quiet…so much so, that corny grownups would say “cat got your tongue?” almost everyday of my kid life. I also didn’t like people much…I preferred my mom and the rest of my family lol.

3 Steps to Take Charge of Your Life

I’m not a follower. I’m not easily swayed. I like being my own boss. I know what I want, how I want it…and yeah. I’m sure of myself…in a good, black girl magic kind of way. This past year, though?! I’ve been wrecked. Like literally, I’ve been facing situations that have rocked my world back to back. God has shown me time and time again there are simply things that I cannot control.

 

I can, however, take charge of how I respond to the situations I face in life and honeyyy, so can you. It’s time we redefine taking charge of our lives. Let’s make this quick and easy, shall we?

Our craziest snowstorm of the season just had to be on the first day of Fashion Week, right? I remember looking out the window and seeing crazy flurries and rising snow all over.

Red Dress // Perception Is Everything

Do you guys remember when social media went crazy trying to figure out if that “the dress” was white and gold or blue and black? I went through the same thing while wearing this dress. Is it a red dress or is it orange? To me, it’s clearly red…just with an orange tint lol.

 

Perception is everything, they say. In this case, I must agree. Since we’re talking all about love this month on Adorned in Armor (be sure to catch up on this post and this one, too), I find it a must to discuss how we walk in love.
