Oh, It Was Ladies Night!!!!


My daughter, Faith , invited me to attend a "What Not To Wear" ladies class last night at our church (I don't know if she was trying to tell me something or what?!?!) by Shari Braendel . Shari came to our church to teach a group of ladies about our different body shapes and sizes.  We learned how to determine what body type we were and what clothing styles flatter our particular body type the most.  We learned which colors were good for us and which ones were....uh...well...not so good! We also learned some fashion tips that make us look slimmer! Whew Hew!!!!

When we first got there we had to go "under the lights" to determine our skin tones, hair color, eye color, etc.  I was a little nervous about this as I came straight from a full day at work, having done my make-up and hair at about 5:30 a.m....never mind that I was definitely the "matriarch" of the group!


Faith was also there.....

As well as Melissa.....

And Jennifer .


Shari had so much helpful information to share with us. We learned everything from what size purse we should carry, to what size accessories we should wear --- for our particular body type.


The main question that Faith was there to get answered, though, (she had stressed about it ALL day!) was...... Is the Yellow Shirt OK for her and..........drum roll.......


YES!  Yellow is a great color for her!
 

 
Thank you, Melissa , for helping to plan the event and for the awesome refreshments!  The Upside Down Pineapple Cherry cake was delish!


Thank you so much, Faith, for inviting me to go.  I enjoyed just spending time with you and all of your precious friends and I also learned some really good tips to hopefully help me look better and feel better about myself--and NOT be an embarrassment to my kids! LOL

The main thing we hopefully came away with from the night is that we are ALL fearfully and wonderfully made! God made us all different --if we were all the same, how boring would that be! It was an awesome time of ladies fellowship and I wish you all could have been here!


"I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well"(Psalm 139:14).

You are right, I was seriously sweating the yellow shirt! I was so glad to hear her say it was ok! Glad you came, Mom! It was so much fun to hang out with you and my bff's! We're a funny group when you get us all together!!

Jenna said...

Oh my goodness, I need to go to an event like this!! SO FUN. Glad y'all had a great time!

P.S. To answer your question from your comment--Meg's dog is a Wheaton Terrier. She is SO SWEET. I had never heard of those before but if I ever get a dog, I am so getting one of those. She is just precious and has the best little personality.

P.P.S GO DAWGS!!! :)

That sounds like such a neat thing, but I would be scared to go for fear EVERYTHING I wear is wrong, wrong, wrong :-).

This looks like it was tons of fun. What a neat thing! I'm usually the matriarch at events, but I have to say you look great. Isn't it great to have daughters? Mine is my best friend now that she's all grown up. The Lord is so good to us. I'm glad I didn't kill her when she was a teen.

Oh, I wanted to be there so bad, but I didn't have anyone to keep my kids. Ya'll look like you had a great time. One thing I am glad about is that I wasn't there for the cake. Uh, one slice please, just sit it right here on my hips.

Oh my fellow Warm, how could you ever be an embarrassment?? So glad you came!
Now I'm off to get rid of some white shirts and silver jewelry.
