One dress, Infinite ways!

   When it came time to find the perfect dress for my bridesmaids, I had several things in mind; it had to be affordable, it had to be floor length & elegant, it had to be comfortable and it had to make all my bridesmaids happy and feel beautiful. Now I know what your thinking, that's impossible right?! How can one dress make five girls of all shapes and sizes happy? Not to mention be affordable and meet all my requirements. I had my work cut out for me! 
   I came across the infinity wrap dress while looking through some bridal magazines and after watching the five minute long video I was sold! One dress, infinite ways! Elegantly made of a pretty viscose-spandex blend and highly customizable to suit each unique body shape and style. It was perfect for my bridesmaids. Perfect for any occasion really.
   I went with the Charcoal Grey Floor Length Infinity Wrap Dress from Etsy. It was only $50 + $25 shipping on Craftingsg ( They all looked so beautiful on my wedding day and I loved the idea that they could wear it again for any special occasion. My bridesmaids wore pearls and nude heels. I was happy that my girls were happy. What do you think?

Girl on Purpose

   Hello beautiful and thank you for stopping by. I felt a little bit nervous about my first post here on Chicly Modest. I wanted it to be perfect (not possible) and I found myself a bit stressed thinking about all the topics there are to chat about. I was reminded through His precious and holy word that I am a child of God and He has given me purpose in being here for this time. Nothing brings me greater peace than knowing who I am in Christ. 
   Have you ever asked yourself "who am I?" or "what is my purpose?", I think we all have at one point. We are often taught who we should not be and what we should not do instead of being taught who we are. Let me be the first to tell you, if you haven't heard it already, that you are a child of God (Romans 8:16) and that you are deeply loved (Romans 5:8). Every detail about you from your laugh, to the color of your hair, from your deepest desire down to all your dimples, freckles, and wrinkles! The Lord has created you and has given you value.
   Ephesians 2:10 states that we are incredible works of art. Genesis 1:27 tells us that we were created in the image of God and Psalms 139 is about how God created us from the time we were in our mothers' wombs and that He created us WELL. I mean how amazingly beautiful is that?! To know that we did not just evolve from a monkey or come from nothing, but rather we were thought of. Individually crafted, knitted and ON PURPOSE. For a purpose.
   Oh if you only knew how significant and valuable you are! I hope that from this day forward, that question no longer lingers in your mind. Be confident about who you are and know that you were given a purpose in being here for this time.
Whether is to share a testimony, talk about something that's been heavy on your heart, asking me to pray for you or just saying hi, I'd love to hear from you!
