I am continually conflicted about the seeming antithesis between my love for God and my love for fashion.  Obviously, I love them in different ways, but they are hard to reconcile.  I want my life to cause people to think about God...not about what they are wearing.  Several times in my life, I have given up fashion for God, but I am always drawn back into it.

I have been asking God lately if I should abandon fashion for a nobler pursuit.  This morning, I'm pretty sure I heard him say, "Can you not enter into this world more simply?"  Simplicity.  Yes, sounds good.  But how do I do that?  

I don't have a full picture of simplicity in my life, but to start, I am going to go on a "fast" for February.  I am not going to buy any clothes for myself for a month.  To some of you that might sound ridiculously easy.  I would think it is ridiculously easy except for the fact that I kind of tried doing it for December and January but didn't succeed.  I didn't spent all that much money.  But the fact of the matter is that I don't NEED any more clothes. 

So, the question is - Can I appreciate fashion without feeling the need to acquire it?

I think we need Christian women in fashion. Look at the clothes for girls out there. Yikes! God has given you an eye for beauty, and you use it to glorify him. I love your blog! Be encouraged!
