A fresh start,
the first breath.
The expectancy and curiosity that comes along with a new year
feels remarkably momentous as the 21st century makes the confident transition from teenager to twenty-year-old.
The fashion realm is not skipping a beat as 2020 vision boards are bursting with imagination! Freshly curated color palettes, sprightly silhouettes of denim, & embellishments of embroidery & crochet are in the trend forecast, & there’s a 100% chance these fresh takes are taking over jb and me by storm!
Before we jump into the exploration of new garment goodies and the double digit decade trends, we want to remind our unique, kind, curious, cherished customers (& ourselves, for that matter) of the truth that does not waver or shift from day-to-day even when our outfits do:
We were created before the clothes.
While we wholeheartedly, passionately, deeply believe a killer outfit is empowering & is the essential fabric-frame that showcases our innate beauty, it cannot be the single source of our confidence.
We must have the confident resolve to believe we were “knitted together in our mother’s womb” by a loving Creator who is wowed by every “fearfully & wonderfully made” hair on our head and breath in our lungs and passion in our hearts. Each & every one of us. Absolutely no exceptions. Not a single person is outside the unending love of God!
When we let ourselves receive the lavish love of our Creator and Father, then we are able to love one another well.
When we allow the Creator of the entire universe to be our guide for how we view ourselves, & then the voices of other humans (or the opinions we ASSUME they have of us) hold zero weight.
Interrupt the fears or lies running through your mind & dare to speak these facts aloud:
I am beautiful (Psalm 45:11)
I was formed with purpose & my mind is intricately made (Psalm 139:13)
I am welcomed & cared for (Ephesians 3:17-19)
Before the world was even created, God eagerly chose me & loved me (Ephesians 1:4)
From these truths about our innate value, fashion is what it’s meant to be: freeing & fun rather than another chore to “keep up with the Joneses.”
As we all embark on the journey of choosing to believe we are loved and care for ourselves with kindness, we can be proud of our unique passions and hobbies and physical beauty, and it will be reflected in how we dress.
