Giveaway: New Creation Women's Apparel

New Creation Apparel is a great site for modest clothing. While their site is not as fancy as some, their clothing is actually modest, without being frumpy. They have a good selection of skirts, which are cute and long. And their prices are great--many of the skirts are about $17.

If you enter the giveaway, you might win a free skirt! To participate, just go to Life in a Shoe and comment!

Sewing Project

I am very busy this week trying to make this dress! We are having a party on Friday, and I am trying to get it finished before then...

I am making the pink one (second from left), except I am using a white ribbon for a sash instead of the big bow. 

So we'll see if I make it!

Beauty Tips by Audrey Hepburn

For attractive lips,

speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes,

seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure,

share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair,

let a child run his or her fingers
through it once a day.

For poise,

walk with the knowledge that  you never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be 
and redeemed;
 never throw out anyone.

~Audrey Hepburn

Swiss Watch

I don't like very many watches, and I don't have one. But I would love to have a gorgeous red one like this. However, it is Swiss, and is very expensive.

I love vintage clothing, especially from the 40's and 50's. The feminine silhouettes that were in fashion then are just lovely. I really don't care for the majority of the earlier 1900's, or the last half. But the 50's were just awesome. :-)

I think I like the fitted waist and full skirt look best when a belt is added. Especially for gals nowadays, who don't have two-inch rib cages, and such perfect waist definition. :-)

I love this dress! The sleeves are rather unusual, but quite pretty, and I just love the ribbon at the waist, the neckline, and the skirt.

I am a Christian young lady who loves fashion, clothes, shopping, shoes, and chocolate. This is my blog for expounding on said subjects. :-) I will also be posting about sewing projects, and modest clothing websites and blogs.
