Is It Me Or… Is Kim Burrell Wearing Lingerie in Her Music Video Out of Order?

Don’t know how I missed this one, but I saw Kim Burrell‘s Sweeter music video the other day and I felt some kind of way about her opening the video in white see through lingerie in a bed. WHAT!! Home girl has candles burning and the whole nine lol! Come to think about it the song has a sexy Sade vibe to it. I don’t know what Kim was thinking because that was not a good look especially in a gospel video. I know she lost weight and all, but cover up!

Even though I’m laughing I ‘m still a little… no a lot disturbed. Why the lingerie and the bed and the candles? It looks like a morning after scene lol! Don’t believe me check out the video.

Style Spotlight: The Pencil Skirt

Posted in Style Spotlight with tags , , , , , on October 8, 2011 by holychick

I love fall fashion! I dress my best during this time. During the summer I’m hot and lazy so I don’t put much effort in what I wear (I should be ashamed to admit that ,but it the truth so what).  I don’t know what it is, but my fashion game be killin in the cooler weather!

If you go to a church like mine, then skirts are more a part of your wardrobe than underwear, lol (my church is conservative so women don’t wear pants in the sanctuary). Either way you don’t have to look homely to be holy. I love looking fly and fabulous, even to church! One of my favorite looks is the pencil skirt. Here a few reasons why:

1. Pencil skirts show off those lovely curves. I have fabulous God given curves and I like to show them off!  Tip: showing curves by wearing tight clothes is not a good look, its a terrible look

2. Pencil skirts allow me to look classy and modest while still looking fashionable and sassy!

3. Pencil skirts are great for church and work. If you’re on a budget, this is perfect!

4. Pencil skirts can be worn all season long. In the summer you can show off your gorgeous legs and in the winter pull out those patterned tights and you have a whole new look!

5. I love love the pencil skirt because its hot and I look hot in it!

So if you don’t already have one go get one or two or three!

You Don’t Have to Look Homely to be Holy

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on September 30, 2011 by holychick

Have you ever been on the bus or train and spotted a woman and immediately thought to  yourself, there goes a church lady. Why, oh why, oh why do some women feel that  looking like a bowl of hot mess soup makes them closer to Jesus? News flash, it
doesn’t! What makes us closer to God is a sincere heart (check Hebrews 10:22 for proof). Our way of dressing doesn’t make us sanctified and holy. Raise your hand if you know a girl who wears her skirt down to her toes and is the freakiest
freak of the week! For too long the church has placed emphasis on attire as a way of keeping people in bondage to religion and rules.  It’s time to lay aside the religious rules and embrace true relationship with God.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not advising anyone to don their skankiest club attire to church. What I am saying  is get to know God for yourself. If you are going in the wrong direction He will step in and lead you down the right path. If you are doing the wrong thing
He will convict you to change your ways. This personal communion with God only comes through relationship. I don’t know about you but stepping out of religion and into a relationship with God is the best thing that has ever happened to me. So to all my Christian sisters out there who took a look at the photo to your right and thought how did they get my picture, it’s time to take off those Herman Monster shoes and throw away those white nurse Betty stockings and shout Free at last, free at last, thank God
almighty I am free at last!
