What I Wore Wednesday-Fashion Week 2

 Ok, I have been inspired by What I Wore Wednesday
from The Pleated Poppy blog.
It is hard to take a picture everyday of what I wear.
Usually, the days I feel that I look my best are the days I never get around to posing for the camera..
I have to have time and get my supportive husband to grab his camera too. 
I feel ridiculously narcissistic asking him everyday.
"Honey, take a picture of me!"
But I am going to try, I already had a serious talk with him about how important this is!
Fashion is top priority this week or our marriage is on the line 
(Sike! ha ha). 

But seriously. I feel so excited and honored to be asked to speak to a group of pre-teen Christian girls this week at a Middle School FCA slumber party about sensible and inexpensive fashion. 

God wants us to each be the best we can be in every way, inside and out. 
If we neglect our bodies and image, we are really neglecting a Masterpiece that He designed.
If you feel weird saying that you are a "Master Piece", then think about it this way. 
You are a piece that was created by the MASTER!
If you feel that is still wrong, then you are insulting the one that created you, the artist that created every artist, the creator of all creation!!!
                                             So, just admit it... YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

The focus is on sensibly taking care of the beauty that God gave you
without letting it carry you away to fantastical vanity land.
(Everyone in that land is a snob!)
 I want to teach girls that fashion does not have to be expensive and style is not meant to make you feel better than others around you, but just better about yourself. 
Anchor pieces help us remember these important things...

Since Anchor Pieces can be cheap, the key is quality over quantity.
And it's not about how much we have, but how good it makes us feel.

So, I want to get in the spirit by attempting this What I Wore Wednesday thing.
Here is my Week of Thrifty Fashion...
