Styling Culottes

I'm really pleased to be able to share this post with you all today. I have been meaning to talk about culottes for a while, as I always receive so many questions and complements about the ones I have and wear. 
Culottes, are basically the word for 'shorts' in French, however they are slightly different to average shorts. I find that not many ladies take to culottes much, so you may not see them around as much, but honestly, if you search hard enough you will find plenty of lovely culottes to invest in. 
I love the vintage touch to this item. That was the main reason I started wearing them again. When I was younger these were very big for my parents era, so it's not a new style. It's just recycled fashion from a time when clothes actually covered people's bodies!

You can find them that they do come in all different lengths, but I personally always go for the ones that fall on my knee or below, purely because I do not support showing my thighs.

Modest-fy a One Shoulder Dress

I hope you are well and that you are enjoying your week so far. The London weather has been so much rain, in the middle of July! It means we can't wear those summer items we may desire to wear but nonetheless, we should give God thanks IN this time. 
Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].  (1 Thessalonians 5:18 AMP)
Today's post is about how I modest-fy a one shoulder dress. Modest-fy was a word which I heard from my sister in Christ ~ ModelMeGirl ~ Check her out she is awesome in Him! Fashionably righteous! 
So, I have many one shoulder items, because over the years I have liked them and preferred them over strapless tops. I personally find that I feel naked in strapless tops. Unless I have a jacket over it, or really really long hair to cover me up, but all in all, I know that Father does not desire for ME, to b…

Coral Dress Top

Here's an OOTD I posted on my IG @setapartstyle. I know that not all of you are on Facebook or Instagram so I try to update you, as often as possible. :)
For this particular look, I wore a pencil skirt with the dress top -- I personally call this a dress top and not just a dress because of the length. Although it is a few inches above the knee, I could foresee that when sitting down, walking in heels etc, my thighs would be exposed. I personally don't like to wear anything that is short and could expose my thighs, as that is not how my Father [God] has raised me in Him. He continues to encourage me to preserve my body (soul, and spirit) for Him and to remain exclusive for Him...I have been set apart for Him, and so have YOU!
I opted to wear this pencil skirt to have the extra length I wanted for this item. I really like the colour ~~ the coral is so bright and lovely. I don't have a particular name for this look, yet I really liked how this basket bag complemented i…
