A Party on Your Wrist (Morning Mtg 9/25)

If you were in attendance at our Morning Carelink meeting on Tuesday, then I bet you remember what a "party on your wrist" is all about :-)

Our guest speaker was Stefanie Roth who is a Premier Jewelry consultant. She gave us a fashion quiz and Tara B. was the big winner. She got all ten questions correct! Stefanie also touched on four basic fashion styles and helped us to identify which we all may be. Here they are:
  • Casual Sheek - t-shirt & jeans, shop the sales rack, great at creating your own style.
  • Bohemian - loose, feminine styles; free-spirited; ruffles & skirts.
  • Simply Classic - taylored, crisp white shirts, versatile jewelry, pearls.
  • Polished Glam - well-cut pieces, simple lines, bling, accessories make the statement.
Stefanie said that if all else fails and you've got five minutes to pull yourself together then put in some earrings - bigger the better especially if you have long hair, tie a scarf around your neck and apply some lipstick. She also mentioned that turquoise is a neutral which means it can be worn with ANY color.

She wrapped up her portion of our meeting by offering 50% off everything purchased on Tuesday and that the earnings from the "party" would be used to purchase some pieces for us to giveaway as door prizes in the coming months. Won't that be fun!

So, it was a fun, light-hearted meeting. Yes, our focus was primarily on how we look on the outside and that does often affect how we feel about ourselves. But it's also good to be reminded that Jesus cares a whole lot more about what's on the inside! And Carelink will be a lot more about that than the other as we go throughout the year.

I know some of you love fashion & jewelry while others of you think it's a waste of time & money - or simply don't seem to have any idea how to pull a look together. Some of you enjoy dressing up a bit for our meetings and others would love to come in jeans and a sweatshirt. Come as you are...maybe not in your jammies, but don't feel any pressure to perform to a certain standard when you dress for Carelink mornings. Sweat pants and a t-shirt sound great to me :-)

Oh, and the party on your wrist...Stefanie told us the more bracelets the better, but only on one wrist ;-) Not up to your elbows on both hands like my daughter likes to do with her silly bands on school days!
