Who is more of a Fashionista?

Who is more of a Fashionista?

The fashion label owners, the clothes designer, the sketcher, the fashion model, the fashion blogger, or the everyday random lady that spies fashion ideas from the runway or fashion magazines and implements them?

Let the debate begin! 😉

Who loves fashion the most?

Label Owners: These are the brave ones. Investing their time and resources into fashion and its entirety. The business of fashion is their career, their whole life. They wake up every day thinking of how to making their brand work, ways to preserve their style and prevent their label from going into extinction. They compete with over 320 popular labels as well as thousands of fashion wannabes.

 

The Designer or Sketcher: These are the ones that create fashion out of nothing or something. They think up what later becomes fashion trends. They sketch designs, determine materials and select the colours that will best justify their designs for a variety of apparels such as formal wears, casuals, lingerie, maternity wears, accessories, eye wears, foot wears and sport wears.

 

The Fashion Model: These are the skinny ones who offer their appearances to enhance the sale of fashion. They work on the runway and feature in promotional settings. They make every effort to dissolve into the style they are trying to promote and make it as attractive as possible.

 

The Fashion Blogger: Bloggers put their opinions about fashion trends into words. They love to talk about fashion and their experiences with various styles. They try out a variety of brands and give their sincere evaluations and recommendations. And you know what they say when you love something, thats all youll ever talk about.

 

The Random Lady: The random ladys love for fashion grows and deepens through the help of the label owners, designers, models and fashion bloggers. She falls in love with the brands, the designs, the girls on the runway, and the blogs that offer suggestions on what to wear to work on Monday.

Fashion as Idol…

…Why do you want to dress the way you do? What is the goal of wearing a certain outfit? If you dress yourself in the armor of God first, it should help direct you as you put on the rest of your clothes! …YouVersion.

True beauty is the glory of God. When you are dressed in the will of God, then God’s glory will shine upon you. This week we cannot but reinstate modesty. Fashion is good when you are moderate about it. It’s deadly when it becomes your idol. This is the part where you ask yourself what fashion means to you.

1PETER 3:3-4 ASV Whose adorning let it not be the outward adorning of braiding the hair, and of wearing jewels of gold, or of putting on apparel; but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in the incorruptible apparel of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

To the beautiful daughters of Zion, here is what they did with fashion.

Isaiah 3:16-24 ASV Moreover Jehovah said, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with outstretched necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet; therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and Jehovah will lay bare their secret parts. In that day the Lord will take away the beauty of their anklets, and the cauls, and the crescents; the pendants, and the bracelets, and the mufflers; the headtires, and the ankle chains, and the sashes, and the perfume-boxes, and the amulets; the rings, and the nose-jewels; the festival robes, and the mantles, and the shawls, and the satchels; the hand-mirrors, and the fine linen, and the turbans, and the veils. And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet spices there shall be rottenness; and instead of a girdle, a rope; and instead of well set hair, baldness; and instead of a robe, a girding of sackcloth; branding instead of beauty.

This shows that exorbitant fashion fosters pride.

When does your fashion become your god?

Genesis 35:4 CEVUK. So everyone gave Jacob their idols and their earrings, and he buried them under the oak tree near Shechem. Your fashion and clothing is your god: If you cannot do without them. If they become the secret of your beauty. If you feel sad when you lose them. If you can’t stop thinking about them. If they saturate your mind all the time. If you think of them in church and while praying. If you are worried about them.

Go into this week making God your all. Matthew 6:28-30.

Maximizing the potential of your facial beauty.

 

This has to do with exploiting your outward facial appearance. This illustration will help explain better: Have you ever wondered the combination of hair style type, hair color, make-up shade, lipstick color, ear ring type, face cream, powder and vitamins that will give your entire face the perfect and most beautiful look you have ever had? That is what I’m talking about. Each day, you should take a little time out to maximize the potentials of your facial beauty – to seek face combinations that will optimize your beauty. I envisage the possibility of enhancing your beauty to its limit, such that it could be said that “this is the most beautiful you can ever look” and then observe what that looks like.

I know people that will not agree with this, as our focus should be more on enhancing the beauty and purity of our souls, as we all will grow old and die and leave our body in the ground. This is true, however maximizing your beauty does not mean neglecting your soul or paying more attention to your body than your soul; it only means that every time you set out, before you do, look into the mirror and be sure that you cannot look better than you already look at that moment. Simply put – look your best always. Take care of your body as well as your soul. 3 John 2.

This week, we will feature two beauties and personalities, who we really admire here at GR – Zoe Saldana and Selena Gomez.

Know your signature – the things that fit you the most and make varieties out of them!

Know the things that fit you the most and make varieties out of them!

From cars to phones, accessories, then clothes shoes, bags, colors, hair styles, make-up. It’s true, you gast to be you! So try and discover you in time.

Step one: You have to do some research. Remember, if you want to know more about a device, use the manual; want to know all about the device, ask the manufacturer. You’ve got to do some reading the bible and then talking with God. Trust me, it works, you’ll get a refreshing and confidence boosting view about you.

Step two: Wear what you like and are comfortable in. Don’t wear stuffs or purchase stuffs because a star has them. Urh urh! Make a list of styles, brands, patterns and designs that you look good, smart and comfortable in. This list is your signature!

Step three: Make varieties out of them. I know someone that used to be such that whenever she is comfortable with one hair style, she does the same hair style over and over, until her Mum says ‘Seriously?’. I’m talking about me. Don’t throw on the same earrings every day for the fact that they bring out your eyes. Wrong! Rather make varieties out of them. Get similar designs of your signature and play around with them and go to step four.

Step four: Smile. Now that we’ve reached the top of mount Everest – SMILE. Always smile. It brings out the love in your heart, boosts your self-confidence and makes other people feel loved.

Step five: Help other people find their signature. Whenever you give a sincere positive comment on people’s outfit, they feel confident and this would help fill up their signature list in time.

And most importantly, when you begin to look FABULOUS, don’t forget to thank God for creating you so so much expertise. 😉
