I like the standard all-black outfit as much as the next girl. But, every now and then I like to step out with some bold styling. This Indian floral appliqued coat drew me in the minute I saw it.
Of course, it’s made with the two colors I love the most…black and red …I knew I couldn’t go wrong! This appliqued coat holds its own, so I kept the rest of the outfit really minimal; even with my jewelry choices.
This elaborate design could easily add bulk, so I pulled things together with a simple belt. When wearing a strong statement piece, it’s important to accentuate the vertical line whenever possible. I achieve this by anchoring the outfit with a solid black bottom and thin-legged pants. The open neckline also draws the eye up to my face.
The floral designs were all stitched by hand. I am amazed by the talent it takes to do such intricate work.
Just like this coat, the Bible says that you are His handiwork. He took care to design you…to weave you together, with a unique blend of talents, abilities and experiences.
Psalms 139 is my favorite chapter in the Bible.
13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit them together in my mother’s womb. 14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about. Your workmanship is marvelous—and how well I know it.
Psalms 139: 13-14 – Living Bible
God knows how to take your life and use it in fabulous ways. Why?…because He created you! He’s not put off one bit by the complicated state of your life because He knows how the pieces were made to fit. And yes, He can even make sense of your crazy. In fact, I have seen Him do his own form of bold styling on more than one woman’s life; including my own!
Just bring your life and lay it at His feet and watch Him weave a design that you never even saw coming.
