Over the years my style has changed as I have changed spiritually and emotionally. Sometimes I wonder how spirituality and fashion can go together... don't they conflict? Am I considered vain because I like to dress up and make pretty altars? Can a spiritual existence be present in a material environment?

I believe it can. If we are spiritual beings living a human existence we must learn to walk this life in the material world. There is a balance to explore - and each of us is different. 

To me, fashion is an outlet for self-expression. When I was 18 or 19 I began to explore my own style and was becoming my own woman. However this growth became delayed because I allowed a dark and abusive relationship hold down my spirit and my creativity. It wasn't until many years later I allowed myself to explore again. 

The more I opened spiritually the more conscious decisions I made about fashion. Adornment became an act of self-love. I also began to support more handmade shops and artists. I love to share and help support others on their creative paths. it gives each piece of adornment meaning. And the times I am spending too much on clothes or jewels, I take a step back and ask "what am I trying to fill?" I try to remember I do not 'need' anything to complete me. Everything is within.

What does your fashion say about you and your spirit? How do you like to adorn yourself? What pieces of adornment has meaning to you?

Allow your spirit to explore this earthly realm. Enjoy in the delights. Adorn your sacred self. Find balance.
