Little Black Dress | Burda 7043
Hello Everyone! Welcome to my new Blog! I’m super excited to be launching today (insert scream)! I’ve received so much ENCOURAGEMENT to do this and I’m very grateful to God for the opportunity. Before I share about the Little Black Dress (LBD) I’m wearing, I’d like to encourage YOU today. Is there something you’re passionate about, something that makes you smile when you think about it? Can you imagine that thing adding value to your life and the lives of others? If you answered yes to these, my next question is this: Are you doing that thing? If you are I applaud you and encourage you to continue. If you’re not doing it, I ask, “Why not?” What prevents you from doing what you love? You were “Designed to Shine.” That means you were created to live your life with purpose, and you can only do that when you’re living according to the way you were designed. Could this be your time to make that move? Go ahead, take a deeper look into YOU, make the needed adjustments and dare to “Shine in your Design.” My motto is this: “When you live in your DESIGN, it is from there that God SHINES.”
Little Black Dress
With that being said, here I am, doing what I LOVE–Sewing! Today I share one of my favorites. I call it my Audrey Hepburn dress, and it represents the essence of my style. I love 50’s-style fashion because the women in those days displayed such class in the way they dressed and carried themselves. That is what I aspire to be — a classy lady. Classy can’t be purchased. Classy is a state of mind. Classy is timeless.
