So yes I thought I could do it, but I totally busted my remix! My mother wanted to go to the thrift store and naturally I wanted to go with her and I found some lovely cloths! Yes I bought 3 more pieces to add to my winter wardrobe. They were pieces that I have wanted for a long time, not necessarily needs, but that's alright. I loved wearing my feminine outfit to the thrift store and getting so many stares! Its weird how feminine clothing is really unheard of it seems here in the metropolitan area! So many gals in pj's and jeans! I was reading Vintage Vixen the other day and I agree with her that people should respect themselves and others, but I would add there is more to dressing in a nice way, you are respecting your body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit if you are a believer in Christ Jesus. So ladies its more than just being pretty and sharing with the world that you want to dress as a lady should, you are covering the temple of the Holy Spirit, which is so precious in Gods sight! So I just wanted to say that I believe dressing nicely, modestly, and in a feminine way is not just about us ladies and our great sense of style! Its about reflecting the Father's love and Spirit in us.
But I came home and changed into my jeans and new dress to see how it fit! I love the dress, I don't wear jeans without covering my rear end. So this was a great winter outfit option so I can wear pants and still be modest. Without further or do here is the new burgandy dress I got at the store. I have wanted a burgandy sweater dress for a while now and this one fit the bill at only $4.00. And yes I did change into my remixed outfit after trying it out. So I guess you could say that I am still going to do the remix anyway, I just had to try this new item out. So aside from buying clothing, I still have done the remix challenge with the rules intact.
And of course my favorite remixed outfit yet! I love this outfit because of the great winter colors in it. I am in love with perwinkle top with the black jacket and grey long skirt! Its the perfect color template! I just love this combo.
Outfit consists of-
Grey skirt- $25.00
Black jacket- $10.00
sketchers brown shoes- gift from friends
cross necklace- gift from my aunt
Alright a more expensive outfit, but hey these cloths were really nice and on sale last fall. I used my birthday money and I use them tons! So this is the first outfit I have worn that was not thrifted at all! so strange or sewn at all by yours truly! Tomorrow I am gonna change that.
So all in all yes I am still doing the challenge, I just got distracted from a really fun thrift store run with my mom! I will post more of my finds later. Hint hint, wool crepe and wool tartan from Scotland coming!
