I'm a home-schooling, bible-believing SAHM with an annual clothing budget of about $500 American. The Space Between My Peers reveals my secret passion: analysis of the art and science of what to wear.
Now let me set your mind at ease. Adorning ourselves in "respectable apparel" doesn't mean we must restrict ourselves exclusively to cheap, out of style, unattractive clothing. Paul is not saying that gold or pearls or braiding are forbidden. In fact, you will find other places in Scripture where godly women wore fine clothing and jewelry.The reason this post is called a A Sad Little History is because when I first became a Christian, as a young mom in my 20s, I immediately pulled out all my out of style clothing and began wearing it again! Where did I get the idea that a Christian must necessarily convey a dowdy appearance?

Rebecca, from The Space Between My Peers , confesses that she is not with the "in-crowd" of couture. But doesn't that make us love her more?

By the way, I got lots of compliments on the brocade Converse!
What is your fashion confession, either a long ago faux pas, or today's guilty pleasure?
"In the business environment, hosiery is a must. Bare legs, no matter how bronzed and smooth, are not a substitute for legs in good quality hosiery."

To find the correct shade of stockings, slip the stocking over one arm and compare to the other. They should match.
