A Peace of Fashion

What should I wear?

What does fashion have to do with peace? In the midst of my funk I was told that when you look good you feel good.  At the time of my deep depression that expression went in one ear and out the other. After all, I was content with wearing the same thing everyday. I didn’t care to spend time on makeup , shopping, getting my nails done and having my hair “slayed”. To me artificially styling my outer existence wasn’t enough to bring back the loved ones I lost or the peaceful state of mind I had prior to experiencing grief.

Then it hit me, God fearfully and wonderfully created me to be all that I am and more. I knew that my body was a temple and I should honor it by taking care of it. So, I gradually started dressing up and made an effort to appear put together. Changing my outer appearance improved my attitude significantly. Fashion convinced me that the right pieces could alter my mindset and the way I viewed myself. That is when retail therapy became apart of my perfect peace.

Although retail therapy is very healing it does come at a cost. So, if you are interested in saving and shopping on a budget this is the section for you! We can indulge in a little guilt-free retail therapy together.
