“It’s not about where you sit but where you stand that matters.” Brandy Sebastian
For weeks you’ve dueled over “what to wear” for fashions biggest event, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. and after changing your outfit more times than you’ve counted, 22 Badgley Mischka dresses, 6 MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA shoes, 22 Ralph Lauren skirts and boots, 10 Anna Sui coats, and 5 Reem Acra creations, everything has changed.
Worst fears are now in full focus, the tide has finally swayed. And according to WWD Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week will no longer be the titled sponsor. (shocker, not really, as the hand writing was on the wall) Where will the thunderous maestro Andre Leon Talley hold court? The masses deserve to know. Perhaps the VIP Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week lounge could be an option?
Remember, it’s that security clad village on the second floor containing free swag and comfy couches, with keyless entry for the fashions elite. But wait, it’s gone too. More bloody changes.
But for one grand moment in time you have a key, an invite, to this elite circle of trust. You’ve finally arrived. An opportunity of a lifetime is before you. It’s perfection personified. This fashionable door was made just for you. Ready to live the couture inspired life of your dreams? Ready to step into your moment of greatness? Well are you, ready? Oh no, Houston we have a problem!
You’re frozen, listless, stopped in your tracks, right? Every muscle in your body starts to cramp up and you are frightened over what? Stress, anxiety, the wind beneath your dress.
Unable to focus on what is and only on what was, you consider catching the bus back home, lying to cover your tracks, an illness or apartment fire will do.
You don’t fit in with the Anna Wintour’s of the world. What if your recycled outfit from last years fashion week isn’t good enough?
One side of you believes you deserve to be there, while the other side knows you’re out of your league. So what do you do when you don’t know what to do? What do you do when what you thought you wanted, is exciting, fearful, and terrifying all at the same time? Well, I’m glad you asked!
You go from fearful to fearless. First, God has not given us a spirit of fear! He has given us the spirit of power love and sound mind. In order to move forward you must focus on your faith by taking a stand against fear. Because where you stand does matter.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
Faith is a powerful weapon that should be in everyone’s wardrobe. Before you walk out the door make sure you are wearing your best asset.
