Counting My Blessings In A Vintage Style Dress

Hello and welcome to The Cooking Wardrobe.

Thanking God for another week on this side in health and strength and for his provision.  How easy it is to sometimes  forget to count our blessings especially in this digital age when we are bombarded with information all over the place.  

We continually crave for more being  "capu capu" meaning grabby in Sierra Leone.  Thanks to reality television "capu capu" culture is here to stay and I would be lying if I said I have not got a "capu capu" bone in me.  The mere fact that the hubs is not even sure which part of the wardrobe is his anymore is saying something but I am yet to hear or understand.  

I am also blessed with  great friends and family as almost all of the pieces in today's outfit were gifted to me by friends and family.  Got to run now but thank you for stopping by and reading.  Have a great week and see you next week. xo.
Outfit Details:
Dress: Simply Vera by Vera Wang (Gift)
Shoes: Wittner
Necklace: Unknown (Gift)
Earrings: Unknown (Gift)

  8. Capu Capu is the order of the day in our world now. We are trying to grab all the things in this world that we don't even need at all.We focus on getting worthless stuffs and we forget to be greatful for the important things God has blessed us with. Thanks for the reminder that GOD has really blessed us by even waking up each morning and take a breathe. Lovely outfit and the colour combo is superb.
