It was love at first sight when I stumbled upon this vintage dress. With its rich rust burnt orange color, flattering silhouette, and embossed knotted texture throughout, I just knew it was meant to be in my wardrobe. Yes, this vintage dress may represent a garment from the past, but it still had plenty of style left to be expressed as far as I was concerned. I wanted to be the one to continue its purpose.
In a way I can’t help but feel this rust vintage dress and I somewhat currently relate. 1) Ok so yes, I may have reached a tad “vintage” by turning the big 40 this year and 2) with all my kids now school age as of this fall, quite honestly I feel a little “rusty” or perhaps unclear as to what and how my purpose in life is to be pursued. Don’t get me wrong, the lack of constant interruption and time to just breathe a little is nice! But even yet has left me questioning “What now?”.
As we know, we all go through different chapters or phases throughout the course of our journey in life. All valuable to contributing to the next one that patiently awaits us to experience in its appointed time. Thankfully like this rust vintage dress, I too still have plenty of life to experience, share, express, and contribute. I am excited to experience God’s guidance in this new chapter as He continues my purpose.
What about you? Have there been any vintage pieces that spoke to you? What was it? Are any of you guys in (or have been in) a lack of clarity for your purpose or calling in life? I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences.
Thank you so much for stopping by to visit Textures of Grace. I hope you all have a wonderful and productive rest of your week. Can you believe we are only 10 days away from Christmas?!!
