At last, we are finally seeing full weeks of beautiful sunshine without the surprise of snow in the forecast (knock on wood). Bikers accessorized with leather, convertibles with their tops down, grills are dusted off, and a slew of grad parties, picnics, outdoor concerts, and road trips are already scheduled in for the coming months. Yep, summer is a’comin’! And ladies, what’s a summer without a good ol’ summer dress?
I love, love, love dresses with a basic silhouette like this because it’s so easy to get up and go with especially when its fabric is convenient and you don’t have to iron it. And while this dress clearly looks like it’s from the ’90s, bright colors with floral NEVER ceases to get me all giddy inside. Whether you’re a heels or sandals kinda girl or hair down or twisted in a quick bun, it’s so simple to look like you actually put in the effort, and let’s be honest, with this kind of weather, all we want is to be outside, right?!
Remember, summer does not have to equal immodesty! It’s humid and we get sweaty. I get it. But it is possible to still look hot when it’s HOT (hah). Take a look at Liz’s post from her blog Downtown Demure. She and 12 other modest fashion bloggers give their tips on how to look cool while staying cool when it’s the temperatures are anything but.
Have a great weekend!

“Modesty is not a bad word. It’s the characteristic of a woman whose heart has been changed from self-will to godliness. It reveals the attitude of a woman that lives to honor God.”
It’s happening! And it’s THIS Saturday!
If you are in the Metro-Detroit area, we invite you to our *first* Faith + Fashion + Finance event! It’ll be a morning full of worship and discussing God’s view on what we wear, our true identity in Christ, and how to manage what’s been given to us. I’ll tell ya, it’s been an interesting, fun, yet challenging time spiritually preparing for these two hours, but I pray and believe that God will speak something into you. So bring your friends, family, and loved ones for this one-of-a-kind event! We look forward to seeing you!
Get to know our special guest speaker, too! We’re not just creating an event, we’re spreading the Message!
See you on Saturday!

Saturday April 16, 2016- Look out New York and L.A., Michigan’s fashion industry just catapulted to a whole new level with its first ever “Michigan Fashion Summit.”
CEO and founder of Michigan Fashion Week, Loren Danielle, and her team created a whole new type of Detroit fashion event where bloggers, make-up artists, models, and fashion business owners came together to learn more about their field of expertise from various industry professionals.
Industry influencers such as Courtney Miarka of “Closet Fashion Fix” and “The Styled Life,” Grace of “Color and Grace,” Mia Ray of “Confessions of a Glam-aholic,” and Char Glover from Project Runway (among so many others) graced the different break out sessions to give tips and advice to grow and succeed as a fashion entrepreneur (entreprenista!). Attendees listened intently while writing in their notes, asking questions, and of course, networking with other go-getters in Metro-Detroit!
I absolutely loved witnessing this type of event because it wasn’t just focusing on Michigan’s designers and their garments on models, but it really catered to other areas that you may not see right on the runway. I am so big on community and collaboration so to experience the first of this innovative event in Detroit was amazing!
Congrats to Loren and her entire team and continuously showcasing what Detroit has to offer the fashion industry. Can’t wait for Michigan Fashion Summit 2017!
“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, an all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
– Hebrews 10:24,25
Next to The Big Apple, it’s no surprise that L.A. is one of the nation’s top bustling fashion cities. From retailers with humble beginnings that bloomed into billion dollar brands *ahem Forever 21 ahem* and all my #GIRLBOSSes of Nasty Gal to the hodgepodge of fashion designers, it’s a total west-coast haven. So instead of highlighting innovators and institutions, I’m taking it straight from the streets: L.A. street style. It’s beyond your typical Cali-girl denim cut-off shorts, flip-flops, and beach wavy hair. These are the girls from Lookbook! I mean, where else could these two-four picture collages have come from? I just love the diversity of personal style and expression L.A. has. Preppy, bohemian, feminine, grunge, minimalistic- they’ve got it all. Los Angeles is a wonderland for people watchers like me. For more details and links to these outfits and bloggers, head over to this Pinterest board!
Just like their fashion department, religious beliefs are just as diverse. According to LosAngeles.com, “The wide variety of Los Angeles religion and religious institutions speaks to the diversity of the city, with many of its residents being active members of such popular religions as Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Baha’I, Taoism, Shinto, and Islam.” I find it so interesting that the past Fashion and Faith Files reported on had an overwhelming statistic of a singular religion dominating that country, but in just one city of the U.S., almost all beliefs are present. America isn’t called “The Melting Pot” for nothing!
One more week until L.A.!!!
