Fashion Passion

Now that you have taken the time to go through your closet and made your four piles of clothes, (stays, goes, needs alterations, and maybe), it’s time for the real fun to begin. Having an organized closet is going to save you stress, time, and money.
Before putting things back in the closet, decide where you are going to donate the clothes, and go ahead and put them in your car. There is a new Goodwill store near Lake Monticello that makes donating quick and easy. They literally have a drive thru where a staff member meets you at your vehicle, and helps you bring it in. Don’t forget your receipt for tax purposes. I also encourage you to go ahead and put the bag of clothes that need alterations in your car too. You’re more likely to take action if you see the reminder in the back seat.

Do you want to look cool, a bit edgy, bold, and confident? Then hop on the biker chick motorcycle trend. It’s a fashion trend you can’t ignore and is here to stay, just as wrap dresses and animal prints have for years. It is a great investment piece and deserves a coveted real estate space in your closet.

Photo courtesy of Annette DalyRecently a friend of mine posted a picture of a new pair of jean shorts she had bought for her child’s back-to-school wardrobe. Later that day she was informed that the shorts were not appropriate on school grounds because they had ‘holes’ in them. In the current fashion industry we call that distressed, and this style is what is trendy right now. This got me thinking about dress codes and what we wear to church.
