GFS Series: Christ Chic



To all of the newbies following GFS...Thank you and HI!
Christ Chic is simply what I wear to church.
Although this looks like I should be throwing a dinner party or something.
I almost thought this was too dressy for church but if I can't dress up for Jesus, who else is worth it?!?


(Vintage Dress/Vintage Sunglasses/Thrifted clutch/Jessica Simpson Sandals)

And let me tell you, I felt great in it!
I threw on simple sandals and a fun clutch to dress it down.
But that didn't stop me from getting mean mugged from random people today.



As I was exiting church, I saw no less than three women do a double take as I passed them.
The least you could do is smile.
So of course, I'm staring them back (mind you I'm still on church grounds at this point.)
Then, while in the mall today, I saw this old lady at the perfume counter literally stop what she was doing and stare at me.
Not a smile. Nothing.
Maybe it was her dress from the 60's.
I should've asked her.

LOL! You are too funny. That's just how church folks are. Especially the elders. I think they seem to forget that saying. Come as you are.

Twills said...

I've been following you for a while now but I've never commented. I just thought that today was just a great day to tell you that I think you're absolutely adorable and hilarious, too! Have a great week!

Jayla said...

Traci said...

Beautiful.

LOL. It's my belief that some people just don't have it in them to simply say to another individual, "you look nice". So I'll do it for them, you look absolutely adorable.

Mellodee said...

Obviously, they were stunned by this fabulous dress!! It's a glorious color and great style. Let 'em stare! They knew that they would never look so great!!

Jada said...

Fabulous dress! If I had of saw you at church I would have told you that. :)

gen321 said...

I love the dress and you look fabulous! Honey, you were just too much for them and they couldn't process. Trust....I have had the same thing happen to me at church.

Chilel said...

I would wear this dress in a heartbeat! It is so cute! Actually I have something similar without the "belt". It is just a lovely color on you. I am sure you have something for your rehearsal dinner (do you have a rehearsal dinner?) but this dress is so perfect for it. And keep on smiling...people should not hate specially in church

Marion Renee said...

I like the dress Reiko. I think it's rather slimming. Just wear the thang girl. I think older women especially church women need an education on the idea of "just to love", no matter what to jusr allow people to come as you are. M~

TyshaJames said...

That color looks amazing on you! Love the earrings! You are definitely church fly! xoxo ty

Thomas said...

Great dress! Love the color my wife has a thing for green of all shades. She would probably throw herself on a rusty spear for those Prada heels as well.

Prissy said...

Reiko, this is such a pretty dress! I love the vibe its giving off! So chic!

Shen Dove said...

Love the cut and color of this dress! Those stares were probably just stares of envy, lol.

Sunny said...

I think they were mad that they didn't think of the outfit first. You look awesome and I love the dress!

Vivi said...

Shoo, I always dress (maybe even a wee bit too much) up for church. It's just something I've been accustomed to ever since I was a lil' child. Meanwhile, that is such a pretty green dress.

Sing said...

What a find! I love a good vintage dress, fits you great.

TigeressKitten said...

They wanted that dress! Your a show stopper in that one! Theirs just some outfits so great it makes everyone look. Plus I think people should dress more for church... after all your stopping by to pay your respects to your god. Why wouldnt you dress nice for god?

Kyla said...

I hope you prayed for all those side-eyed sisters, because they need to be saved - this look amazing! Period.

Yeah! Way to give your best inside and out! My boys go casual - the concept of dressing your best appears "surface" to them - but I love how you put the God-heart back in it!

You may be crying, but I am over hear laughing at "maybe it was her dress in the 60s!" lmao! People don't know how to give complements anymore! I just had that convo with the bestie today! She experienced a similar situation! But uh uhm I am gonna need those earrings! I see you aint' tell us where you got them from, or did I miss that? I love the dress too! Purple and green are my all time fav colors! So you know you alright with me! No side eye looks:)
