I always think it’s a little bit neat when people use one piece of clothing in several different ways. I’ve worn this as a skirt a couple of times before transforming it into a dress, but I’m starting to think…. I kinda prefer it like this. This isn’t really something that I do often, but when faced with brick walls and desperation, it’s nice to have a couple of pieces like this in your wardrobe. It’s only elasticated along the top, so I chucked over a simple white tie-up blouse. Surprised? …hmmm, me neither. I promise I’ll try and introduce some other styles in our next photo shoot 😉 This post is hopefully another bit of inspiration to those of you who are interested in utilising your wardrobe in the best way possible.
Before I skip away, I would like to address a point that I hope I’ve made clear on this blog before, but if not… here goes. Watching a movie recenting – My Big Fat Greek Wedding – I was reminded of this. Any girl can make herself look nice. Any girl! Not just the slim, or those with long, flowing hair, but every girl. With a change in style, perhaps some skin care, a touch of mascara, new hair style, any girl can look good. I’m not saying that we should be obsessed with the way we look, ’cause, let’s face it, nobody finds that attractive, but we should care. By caring for your self-image and perhaps making a few necessary changes in your style, you can feel good about how you look and present. The main girl in the movie above transformed from this, to this. Perhaps this is slightly unrealstic, but what I’m trying to do, is encourage you. We’re all on a journey in our style, but keep on going, take care of yourself and you’ll receive the confidence that you need. This only addresses the outward confidence, inward confidence comes from something far deeper than outward beauty. Lasting inward confidence and beauty comes from God.
Enjoy these photos, and note the last one especially. Nissi has shot photos for us a couple of times and I was very pleased to be able to feature her on the blog. She’s Rhesa’s sister and I’m just so grateful for their help from the beginning. 🙂
Coming up on Creative Touch: On Monday, Lydia (my older sister) asked Rhesa (my photographer) to do a photo shoot of her wearing several different outfits to send some to her boyfriend. Kinda cute, aye? Well, they turned out beautifully, so I’ll be putting them on the blog and talk a little bit about each outfit. After all, I did put one of them together 😉 Hmm… my orginial fashion sense is really coming out! Probably because Lydia’s too busy to help me these days…
Have a lovely rest of the week! I’m quite liking this mid-way change of seasons where I can still wear shorts and t-shirts and throw a cardigan or scarf on top without getting too hot.
