Church Dress Suggests...

'Tis the season of giving and many people are in need this year. After seeing video posted on WWWChurch Dress had to be a part of this initiative and we are encouraging you to do the same!

Church Dress is sooooo on this. We already started collecting dresses to contribute to this cause. Dresses are the focus of our business and we love to give so this project is perfect for us.
We also love a Challenge so our Goal is to give 23 dresses to this cause. With God's Help we can do it!

"Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure-- pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return." Luke 6:38

Church Dress@ WWW: A Literary Journey

PUSH by Sapphire was the book selected for the second annual WWW: A Literary Journey event. With a new movie " Precious", the book has become one of the most discussed for the end of this 2009 year. Though is may look like an easy read with about 350 pages, it is not. Its graphic content about the life of an obese and abused sixteen year old named "Precious" turns your stomach and make it difficult to read.

Over one hundred women filled the dining room of The Boiler's House in the Distillery district of downtown Toronto. The evening was filled with discussion about the details for the book and the impact it had on its readers. While eating a meal the women of the WWW- What Women Want- community interacted with each other, agreed to disagree and shed tears.

The WWW Guests

The event was hosted by WWW's Creator Shannae Ingleton and her welcoming team. Shannae is the owner and founder of What Women Want that along with an blog, hosts exceptional events for women.Shannae's success has caused her to expand and develop what I like to call the "WWW Community".When describing her own life journey and the development of WWW Shannae stated these words," I created an opportunity for myself". I immediately tweeted that quote. It really reminded me that you can do anything and accomplish everything when you use your two hands and begin to build.

I was honoured to be amoungst some of Toronto's most accomplished and intelligent women. Athlete and Fitness Gurue Robyn Baldwin and Tonya Facey of What's On My Plate were my tablemates and it was great to enjoy the evening with them. The dialogue was intense but ended with words from Dr. Roz who is the founder of Dr. Roz's Healing Place which is a shelter that provides aid for women like Precious.

I could go on and on about the memorable moments from the event.Instead I will encourage you to come out to the next one and experience it for yourself.

Church Dress TIPS: We Heart Shoes

Shoes are a big deal. They can make or break an outfit and your wallet. At any cost church shoes are a great investment. One great pair can last you a lifetime so spend wisely but fashionably.

Recently, I have seen shoes and boots that are gorgeous for church.They are unique but also very versatile. Here are a few that graced the aisles of Apple Creek Seventh Day Adventist Church.

These are my fav with the Black Patent Leather and a Cobalt blue heel.

Classic black leather boots with nylons compliment any knee length skirt.

Metallic Gun Metal Grey Stilettos will spruce up any outfit. * Drooling*

Take your Pick ;)

Church Dress Features: Karla's Closet

I love all things BLOGish. There is no better feeling like discovering a new fashion blog and seeing the creativity that people have with their clothing. One of my fave blogs is which features great pictures of Karla wearing amazing vintage and designer clothing. Each outfit is appropriate for the event the she is attending or the mood that she is in.

Karla not only wears nice clothes but engages her readers with stories about her daily routine and her family. Travel, music and magazine editorial are also topics featured on this popular fashion blog.The best thing about the blog is the array of colourful pictures. She takes many pictures daily and documents the items she wears and where they come from.After admiring her work, I was insipired to do the same.

Vintage Blazer, Forever21 Skirt, Vintage Heels, Old Navy Tank Top, Clutch Unknown , Belt Unknown.

Church Dress TIPS: What to Wear to Sing.

My Church was having a concert to complete the evangelistic series they had over the month of October. I was asked to sing and sang a song that was dear to my heart. The biggest issue I always have with singing is choosing something to wear.

Its difficult deciding on something to wear to minister as you will be in front of many people, you want to look confedient and do not want to offend anyone.When selecting something to wear to sing a solo or even in the choir here are a few tips

  • Wear something loose. A suit Jacket is always a great option because it won't show the movement of your stomach while you are taking in air to sing
  • Wear comfortable shoes. In this performance my shoes were a mess! I couldn't properly plant my feet on the ground because of the carpet and the weird design of my shoes
  • Do not wear a girdle. That sounds like common sense but sometimes you forget. When singing forget about your shape and go girdleless!
  • Make sure you outfit is not too too warm. When you sing you naturally sweat, so wear clothing with breathable fabrics that won't show your sweat stains *pause*
  • Be modest! Where a skirt that is not above the knee as it looks horrible when you are elevated and everyone can see your unmentionables. A skirt or dress at the knee will not look shorter when you stand on a stage as the eye level of the congregation is at your knees. Low v necks are out of the question along with shoulder bearing tops or blouses. it goo distracting for both men and women when they are looking at you. The focus is on the message in the music not your sculpted arms.
In this video you will see what I wore and the song that I sang. I give myself 4 thumbs up lol!

Church Dress Needs Mercy!


Do you know my name?

My name is mercy. I was there when there was no one else around. I was there when you were bed ridden. I was there when you got stopped for that speeding ticket. I was there when all hope was gone. My name is mercy.

I never take a day off for I must be ready when Jesus sends me to help your soul. He loves using me for I show how great, loving and kind He really is. It’s great representing Jesus because He knows exactly when and where to send me. He predicts when you will need me and has me on call.

Imagine what your life without me? Imagine your life without God’s grace and mercy? You would be plagued with endless heartache, more debt, numerous illness, violence and injury.

My name is Mercy and as the French would say “ Merci”. Unfortunately, God’s children forget to say “Thank you”, when I come to their rescue. Just as they call upon God’s name, their lips should be dripping with praise. With the same voice that asks for mercy in the lowest moment of their lives, that voice should be lifted to say “ Thank you”.

Luke 6:35-36 says that we must love our enemies and give them all that we have without asking much in return. Be merciful as our God is merciful. Show mercy as God has shown mercy unto you. Use mercy in your daily life with your children and your coworkers. Show mercy to your friends and show much mercy to your spouse. Use me in times of anger, despair and trouble.

Be merciful as your God is merciful unto you. Remember my name for you will need me. My name is mercy.

Church Dress Stand UP!

Today I was thinking about the amazing team Church Dress has and how well we work together. We respect each other and the intricate roles that we each play. There is no competition between us and with each event and project we grow stronger. Here are a few of my fav pics of our team members and our product! I am so blessed to work with them. We have our "ups and downs" like any other group but our "ups" only take us higher with God's help.

Dear Church Dress Team,
Keep Striving towards a higher mark. I heart you all.
