Confidence, Love and Honesty
I have surely had a long and interesting fashion journey. I cannot tell you how many trends I have tried, (big waste of money in my opinion). Now, I don’t know if you can relate to this but one thing I can say is that the reason it took me so long to get to where I am in my choice of fashion is because I failed to take into account what worked for my body and what didn’t. Many times I found myself loving an outfit or piece on another friend/blogger and I went out to buy that item, to then see it did not work for me or to continuously wear it being oblivious to how terrible it made me look.
If there’s one thing I can say, it’s to be real and honest with your friends girls. I dislike it when someone can’t be upfront and honest with me in any area, let alone in what I am choosing to wear. If your girlfriend asks you what you think, be honest because it’ll save her the embarrassment and money. Anyways, this was my constant dilemma. Since my late teen days I have always been wide in the hips and had a large bust. Due to my body type, it makes it hard for me to find clothes that I feel great it and suit me well. Not taking into account I am on the shorter side as well… If I am not careful, certain garments can make me look heavy, or just not flatter me in any manner. I was purposely blind to this for so many years. I don’t want to be dramatic but I was in denial of the body I had and dressed for a body type I didn’t have. First rule of this is to LOVE how God created you. We were all made in all different shapes and sizes, all created to be a beautiful image of our Father. If you don’t accept yourself for who you are then it’ll be a long and difficult road ahead. The Father wants us to love ourselves, not tear ourselves apart.
So, with that, embrace who you are and dress to accentuate just how beautiful you are. Now, I don’t mean in a scandalous way, please cover up. This isn’t spoken about enough but modesty is key. Dressing modest and respectful IS beautiful. Personally dressing like you barely have any clothing at all, isn’t cute. It just shows you don’t have much respect for yourself or your body. I know many can disagree with this but that is my personal opinion and I have the freedom to express that. Jesus doesn’t want us showing off our bodies, He wants us treasuring them. I wish I heard more about this and I feel it isn’t, so I will. I want every topic I do talk about to have a meaning, to be encouraging and for God to be part of it and He is! My loves, you’re gorgeous. You don’t need to be more lean, thinner, wider etc. You just need to love you because The Father does. Once I started loving myself more, I started looking at myself in a completely different way. I saw felt beautiful, and owning your beauty isn’t vain unless you make it that way. Confidence is the best accessory you can have, so always carry it with you and God bless! I hope this was helpful and you leave here more encouraged and certainly loved!
