Our FIRST Fabulous Friday Freebie is a
$30 Gift Certificate from
True, as a mom to 5, my energy, resources and focus is primarily on keeping them dressed, fed and happy. I love that my days are filled with cutting food into bite sized pieces, repeatedly washing peanut butter handprints off my windows, arranging "flower bouquets" of weeds my darling children bring inside and slapping spiderman band-aids on boo-boos. But, when the rare and wonderful opportunity presents itself for a night-on-the-town out with my handsome man, I love to play that part too!
When offered an item of choice from Handmade Ministry, I let my hubby make the selection and he wasted no time choosing this darling dress. Easy, breezy, sweet and flirty, Handmade Ministry offers a bit of fashionable flair all the way from Bangkok Thailand.

Lovely dresses for a dinner date or to layer as a top over jeans in a more casual setting.
Scarves are in, have you noticed? Bundled up to your nose for sleigh-rides, or as we do it in the south, thrown over your shoulder paired with a tank top...this is my new favorite look! Handmade Ministry designs lightweight cotton scarves which are a steal at only $10 each. A cute accessory and an easy fashion statement.
Has anyone else who has traveled the world ever notices that American girls are the only females on the planet that wear pajama pants to a restaurant for breakfast? It makes me laugh every time! Seriously, in Ukraine, women wont leave home without their stiletto heals on. This includes the six months out of the year that it is 20 below and the ground is covered in ice and snow.
Saudi Arabian women may wear an Abayah out in public, but underneath, she has designer clothes, jewels and make-up on.
I get the concept of comfort. I do! I and am happily writing this from the comfort of my living room, by my sparkling tree in my husbands flannel plaid pajama pants at this moment. However, I wonder if slipping into these might be a more appropriate alternative for that early morning coffee date instead...

I've worn my pjs to the grocery store, my son's school (we had a movie night, though, where you were supposed to wear pjs), and even to work when I was asked to go in early to do the books because the person scheduled couldn't make it.

I once wore my pajamas in the car to drop my daughter off at school, which happens to be at our church. If I thought I would have had to get out, I would have taken some time to throw a sweatshirt and jeans on...... But since I was running late (which is why I was wearing my pjs in the first place), I was forced to park the car, get out and walk her in-- along with my half pj clad baby. Unfortunately, it happened to be the day the Men's and Ladies groups were meeting at our church to stuff Thanksgiving baskets. Not my finest moment.

shannon said...

Told my little sister about this one via gchat...her name is Kelley :)

Meggera said...

I love Fons work, and think God has given her a great gift of creativity.. I have a pair of her wide leg pants and wear them even when the snow is flying around here..it would be hard to chose just one thing.. but I love the unique Jacket with the black button, and that daisy yellow skirt wow!!
