...Tis the Season

"He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree."  -Roy L. Smith

"There has been only one Christmas - the rest are anniversaries."  -W.J. Cameron

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas, as it is a wonderful time of the year.

This is actually a long- sleeved bolero and a tube dress. I wasn't able to get a picture without the bolero, but I'm sure you can imagine how it looked.  Have a great day. (=

...And the Winner Is...

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. We as a church have been blessed greatly, however we must always recognize that without the hand of God and His precious anointing, all our labors will be in vain." -Melody Beattie


For please allow me to apologize for the late post.  These past few weeks have been crazy! 
Straight to the point...

My Birthday [Giveaway] Gift to You!

"Nobody can beat you at being you." - Joel Osteen 

As I stated below today's my birthday, and I have a gift for you. I'm giving away this beautiful ankara to one of you.  See entry rules below. 



Rules: 
1. Follow me on Instagram. (If you are already following me, you will be automatically entered!)
2. For an added entry, "Like" the Instagram picture. 
3. Really want to win? Write "Win This Ankara" on the instagram picture.

Each additional thing you do will give you an added entry into the drawing, increasing your chance to win.  This "Win It" will close Friday, 30 November.  I am using Random.org to select the winner and  will announce the winner on Monday, 03 December.  Good luck to you all. 

If It's Your Birthday, Make Some Noise!

"Whenever you are passionate about who you are, it brings honor to God." 

"Whatever follows "I am" is going to come looking for you." 

- Joel Osteen

The second quote is so true.  What you believe is true about yourself- be it a negative or positive thought- is bound to come true. If you search Pastor Osteen's "I Am" message, I'm sure you'd agree.  

Happy Birthday to moi! I absolutely love birthdays.  The celebration of life is one of the greatest gifts one can ever have, and I am very grateful to see another year of life with a sound mind and good health, and a great family and friends around.  I wore this dress sometime back to a 70th birthday celebration.  I bought it in Dubai back in January and finally had somewhere to wear it.  My seamstress took it in for me because I did not think it flattered me anymore in its original state.

Watta!

"Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible or their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be." 
- Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, Vol. III, p. 9 

This dress is so vibrant. Watta looks joyful and beautiful.

Regal

"...Your Face Mirrors Your Heart..."

This lovely lady is my hair stylist (and I use the word lovely loosely...she tried to fight me before she let me take these pictures, haha).  She looks totally regal in this dress.  It reminds me of Jennifer Lopez's Jackie O dress from the 2003 Academy Awards.  Have a fabulous week, everyone.

Wings

 "...What is hidden is more interesting than what is obvious..." 

I remember when this girl used to be a tiny little baby. Time literally waits for no one.
Abi's dress style is very different, and is solely for the daring.

Statuesque

"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart." -Steve Jobs

That quote is very raw, but it is so true...I love it. 

Power shoulders and faux peplum skirt.






Tube top dress with a one-shoulder chiffon overlay. Very nice and clean shape.
