Welcome to the second edition of the Homemaker’s Challenge! If you would like to know more about this blog hop you can read this: Homemaker’s Challenge. This weeks challenge is: What’s In Your Closet?: Fashion for Less Edition. You know it has been proven over and over that when we look good, we feel good. I took that to heart and made sure that every day I am dressed to look good. I felt better because I knew if I had an unexpected guest or had to run a last minute errand then I was prepared. My dear husband also prefers to come home to a women who has on something with a bit more style. In other words: he is not into sweats. Your Homemaker’s Challenge is to add 3 new outfits to your wardrobe BUT, you can’t spend any money. Get creative. Swap clothes with your sister, your friends, or shop your very own closet! I know you have stuff in there that you forgot about. You can even remake some clothes out of what is in your closet! It is totally up to you but you must add three new outfits to your circulation of clothes you wear regularly. Once you have put your new outfits together craft a post and tell us about it. Show us pictures or videos. Remember, part of the challenge is to embrace new things as homemakers as well as honing your blogging skills, and yes, we know you have mad skillz! Show us! I will blog about my new finds and we will even get to attend a pre-recorded fashion session by our expert judge, Shari Braendel! Look for that here: The Truth About Black and Dressing for Your Body Type. One random participant will receive the following:
In Good Girls Don’t Have to Dress Bad, Shari Braendel teaches you how to appreciate the body God gave you and how to always look your best—from conquering the battle of finding the right swimsuit, to choosing how many bangles you should wear or how big your purse should be, to wearing the right style jeans that will best flatter your thighs or hips, to finding the best places to shop to suit your unique personal style.Many of us are watching reality TV shows to get a clue on how to dress right and look good. We hungrily purchase fashion magazines any time the cover article has something to do with how we can hide our despised body parts. We make mad dashes to the local department store to pick up the new anti-wrinkle cream Oprah promised will take ten years away from our face. We care about how we look. Why is that? Because we’re women, and women love to look and feel good. God made us that way. And this is not a bad thing. In fact, it’s a wonderful thing. God loves beauty. He doesn’t want us to reflect his image being sloppy, disheveled women of God who don’t pay any attention to what we look like. Good Girls Don’t Have to Dress Bad will show you how to look and feel your best, no matter what day it is or what the occasion. And it will also stop you from screaming at the top of your lungs, “I have nothing to wear.”
Our regular judge, Amy Stults, and our guest “judges” (Karin Katherine, and our fashion expert, Shari Braendel) will be picking some of their favorites to share on Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. If you want a bit of constructive feedback about your post then just put at the bottom of your post, “encourage me judges!” and that will let our guest judges know that you are interested in constructive feedback. Otherwise, just take the challenge for the fun of it! Link up!
