I’m sure you are wondering what this all about, but don’t worry… I’ll definitely unravel why I’m starting a #choirgirlwardrobe series in the coming months. If you’ve known me for a while, you probably know already that I’ve been a minimalist for a while now. Without any ambition to change that status, I’ve been making some changes in my wardrobe and thought it necessary to share why to avoid confusing my audience and also to attract new followers… who knows?
For the past 6 years, I have been focused on building my minimalist wardrobe. At the early stage of my minimalist journey, I had to literally rid my wardrobe of colors. This caused me to start building my wardrobe from scratch, buying new clothes, shoes, and everything I need to sustain my minimal lifestyle. As a result, my wardrobe is mostly filled with white and black fashion pieces…which is okay. I love it, I’m not complaining.
However, in 2021 I rekindled my passion for music by joining my church choir again. Yes. I left choir for a few years… this is one of the consequences of marrying someone you are not spiritually compatible with. It can affect you in several ways. In my case, I found it very difficult being committed in church as much as used to and loved to. I generally started losing interest. I thank God for the grace to re-connect with him in the deepest way possible now.
before rejoining choir, it took me over a year to make up my mind… yeah… the disconnection was that bad. Deep down, I knew I have a calling in Music ministry, and joining other service departments was just me running from it and therefore wasting my time. Nevertheless, each time I remember that I have to start buying new COLORED cloths, my heartbeat will race faster… the first few weeks felt incredibly weird and uncomfortable for me… wearing anything other than white, black or nude/
Fast forward to six months later and things are beginning to feel normal, but one thing remains uncertain for me, “Should I just quit minimalism?”
No. I don’t want to. I’m not ready for it or willing to let go of that part of my life. Most importantly, I don’t have to
So what should I don then?
BUILD A SECOND WARDROBE. START A CHOIR-GIRL WARDROBE.
So in subsequent posts, I’m going to be showing you what I’ll be wearing to minister in choir in the #choirgirlwardrobe series.
I’m wearing PacisVichiAtelier Midi Sequined Body-con Dress, layered with a Black Chiffon Blouse for a more modest look.
