Stylenspire: leatherette

From baubles to leather, & all the rage in between, faux fashion have been a huge trend & is ultimately here to stay. A faux anything is a replica of an original. Fashion designers with tiered label lines started creating faux pieces as affordable options for the likes of you & I. 
In time, I have discovered that not all faux pieces are affordably priced (depending on the item & the designer), & that the affordably priced faux does not mean poor quality. Faux trends are also best for non-staple fashion pieces that can boost your collection without breaking the bank.

As with any substitute, it is not meant to replace the faithful staples that make for a fashionably lasting wardrobe. Like our relationship with the Lord; every other relationship you develop on your life's journey should never be more esteemed than the one you have with your Saviour! 

The gift of Grace is indeed the best free gift you can ever receive; to substitute His Grace for any other second best will indeed be costly.

Today's outfit boasts of trends & staples, 

Yet each fashion piece have the potential to journey on with me in style.

Stylenspiration: "Fashion is fleeting & style stages changes with your life's growth; there's forever going to be the next must have item so bargain for it."
