Schoolgirl Chic / Poll Results

  Good day, all! Has your week been off to a good start? Mine began in a busy but fun way of cleaning house and fellowship with friends.

  As those of you who visit this blog regularly might notice, I got a hair cut! If there's nothing else to encourage a girl to dress with style, a new hair cut will. ;) On the day my locks were restyled, I put together an outfit that has almost a schoolgirl look to it. I tried something completely new and layered a button-up chambray under a yellow sweater. These were put with a knee-length pleated skirt, tights, and brown shoes. Though most of the colors were warm, the chambray top's icy shade didn't clash. It added a unique twist to an otherwise classic outfit.

   Below are the insightful results of what thirteen readers voted for as their favorite posts in this week's poll. I want to thank each of you for participating! If the percentages seem odd, keep in mind that each person was able to choose more than one answer.

76% voted for outfit posts
69% voted for historical fashion
61% voted for hair tutorials
23% voted for Fashion Defined
23% voted for devotionals
23% voted for guest posts

   So, what does this poll mean for Sunday Best? To begin with, I have decided to discontinue regular posting in the Fashion Defined series and use it as a more sporadic outlet for any research I do. Though guest posts and devotionals are also not as popular, I think the former is important for relationships with other bloggers and the latter is something that is close to my heart for this blog. Because hair tutorials and historical fashion are more popular, these will be things that I will work on doing more posts on! :)

The sun shall be no more they light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
Isaiah 60:19

Stripes+Chevron / Make a Day

  Since becoming a fashion blogger, I have definitely become braver in the world of clothes. For example, I've been mixing patterns that I wouldn't have before. This casual outfit from last week was a first time for me, as I paired pinstripes with a chevron pattern.

New Dress and Heeled Oxfords!


  Afternoon, friends! I hope you are having a good week so far. How's the weather where you live? In my neck of the woods we had a sudden transition from summer to fall during the early part of last week. Last Sunday I wore a wool skirt to church, whereas the week before I wore sandals to the evening service! It's definitely time for a wardrobe transition.

Fashion Defined: Short Pants

Happy weekend ladies! Are you ready for another fashion defining adventure? Let's go!

   Once upon a time, I wanted short pants that weren't, well...shorts. I was glad to finally find some for this summer at a consignment store. They're jeans that hit me at my calf muscle and have a small notch on the outer seam. Because of my slender legs, they look better rolled up just below my knee, hence they appear shorter in these pictures than the actually are. I have called them capris and crop pants, but decided to find out for sure when writing a blog post including them (see here). I decided they were pedal pushers at the time, but it's not really as simple as that.

Cool in Blue / Laughing at Myself

 Hello ladies! I hope your week has been off to a lovely start. :) Here, we've been enjoying a very summery October so far. All the same, it's about time to talk about cool weather clothes - today I'd like to share with you another winter outfit styled by my mom!

Guest Post: Costume Inspired Dress by Jill

Hi, my name is Jill and I blog over at the Wizard of Odds and Ends, my craft/fashion/chatty blog.
First off, I want to thank Paige for asking me to do a guest post! I am thrilled to have this opportunity!
I've been trying to figure out what to write about for nearly a week. Lately, I've been writing a Handmade Wardrobe Series on my blog where I try to build two or three outfits around one article of clothing that I made. It has been challenging, but SO much fun. Today, I decided I'd show an earlier piece of sewing that I did.
