The FIVE “Fs”: Fashion, Fit, Femininity, Function and Frugality
My prayer and purpose for this topic is to strike that balance between being “in this world and not of this world” in regards to The FIVE “F’s”of Fashion: Fashion, Fit, Femininity, Function, and Frugality in a way that conforms to God’s word.
Please enjoy reading my philosophy and frustrations of fashion as it relates to being a child of God, and recognize the tongue in cheek humor to be just that; good humored fun.
The ever changing styles that we in some form or another are bound to because we live in this world.

The biggest obstacle to modesty is fit. If you can find the right fit, you don’t have to pull up on your tank top, tug down on your skirt, look at your butt in the mirror hoping there is enough “slack in your slacks,” or wonder if what you are wearing is figure flattering or figure revealing.

There is a balance between budgeting and faith. When you need it He will provide it, and do your absolute best with what He provides. Find that balance between spending needlessly and being miserly, knowing that you are not a beggar but a child of the KING.
