How to Make Your Character Look Like a Million Bucks

On this Fashion Friday my thoughts turn to a different aspect of fashion. My niece will be modeling how to wear a scarf or pashmina, but, a deeper question is the main topic. As women we all want to look our best when we emerge out of our closet, but what about how we look when our character is showing like the old-fashioned-slip-out-from-under-our-dress? So here is my question…

How do you  make your character look like a million bucks?

I posted this as my status on Facebook this week:

If you are someone  who enjoys making others feel bad about themselves, remember this… you never look good doing it.

If the goal is to look impeccable, then our character should be the first garment we drape over our bodies. Consider how to wear a pashmina. As I look to my sweet niece to see what is chic right now… I see so much more.

Getting Outside

I’m reminded…not to stoop to the level of those who gossip, tear others down or enjoy making others feel bad about themselves…

Golden Rule of Wardrobes

Instead, do good to those who hate you…

Most Valuable Colors

Look to the golden rule for guidance. Do unto others…

Head over Heels for Plaid

Bless those who curse you…

Crazy about Plaid

If someone takes your coat… offer them your pashmina, too!

Making a Statement

Making a statement in more ways than one…

Here are 10 Ways We Can Live Like a Million Bucks from the Inside-Out:

1) Live Faithfully – Love God.

2) Live Loyally – Be devoted to those we  love.

3) Live in Humility – Be confident in ourselves without an air of self-importance. Always consider others more important than ourselves.

4) Live Politely – Manners and good behavior will always look  beautiful and never go out of style.

5) Live Dependably – Do what  we  say  we  will  do.

6) Live Generously – Whether it is our time, our gifts or talents or our money, meet the needs around us. The rewards are pressed down, immeasurable and overflowing.

7)  Live Honestly – Be honest with ourselves and others. Good character is what you do when no one else is looking.

8) Live to Forgive – Holding grudges is an ugly business.

9) Live Real – Be yourself. After all there’s no one else in the world created like you.

10) Live Determined – Set goals to live out our good character and be persistent – even when it’s uncomfortable.

As you are getting dressed next week, I pray that if your slip is showing as you walk out the door, it is a characteristic that makes you live like a million bucks!

  1. What a good reminder this is. I recently was leaving the grocery store and when I picked up my extra shopping bags, I realized they had hidden two bananas I had picked up but not paid for. When I went to the service desk to pay for them, a man next to me said “really, you came back for 2 bananas? Who would have known, it is only a few cents.” I told him, “I would know.” I paid for my bananas and went on my way. Character speaks louder than how we dress, doesn’t it? Thanks so much for sharing over at Celebrate Your Story!

  2. Beautiful post. Great wisdom and presentation.
    Your niece is beautiful and so are your photos.
    I have not been very active lately blogging or visiting not because I don’t enjoy it but I have had other life events taking my time. It is good to visit a minute. Have a wonderful season of joy this Christmas. Bonnie

  3. This young lady certainly lives like a million bucks from the inside out. Not only does she look beautiful but she is beautiful on the inside as well. When her character is showing she is even more beautiful, in style and comfortable.
