Hi everyone, happy Sunday. So, this outfit is what I wore to church yesterday; a purple maxi velvet dress and a plaid jacket totally on trend but inexpensive. Since this is the season of sharing and giving, we should not forget to shop and spend our money wisely. In the spirit of the season, I decided to style this holiday look by shopping my whole look from a place that is usually ignored by most people in the community. I went to Arc's Value Village Thrift Store in my neighborhood and shopped this whole look excluding the plaid blazer which I have had for years. The thrift store which is very clean and organized with stylists on board to help you get the best shopping experience (if you choose to book them) has been serving the twin cities for over 35 years and their profits which they get from donation, shoppers and volunteers go towards helping people with intellectual and physical disabilities. You can read more about it here.
So, I got this purple velvet dress
for $7: 00, the sequin clutch for $3:99 and the Nine West loafers for $9:99 and there was an addition 20% off discount at check out. I got home and had every piece cleaned and ready for wear with gladness in my heart that my purchase would go towards making someone's life better. A lot of times we complain about how terrible our lives are when we are going through difficulties or complain that we have no shoes to wear when there are lots of people without limbs. To sum this up, remember what the Bible says about the Virtuous woman in the Bible; Proverbs 31: 10-31." ...She makes tapestry for herself; her clothing is fine linen and purple..." 😉 Thanks so much for stopping by.
