Fashions A La’Frivolous

Good morning, ladies!  This morning, knowing that we all need to refresh our personal wardrobe from time to time, we have prepared a special collection of fine originals for your viewing and consideration.  Upon the conclusion of our fashion show, if you wish to obtain one of these originals for your wardrobe, you need only to let us know!  Before we begin, I’d like to remind you of a verse of Scripture found in Proverbs 17:22–“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine”.  We are trusting that our style show will not only give you some good ideas, but will provide some merriment for your hearts!  Our collection will feature favorites for travel, sportswear, office wear, that after-five look and even some sleepwear.  If our music director is ready with her accompaniment, let us begin.  (Music director plays as each model is introduced)
