This really happened, and it made me think. I was strolling down Fifth Avenue and saw this woman handing out flyers, I paid her no mind as, well, just paid her no mind. I was taking pictures of windows and of street chic, people that I felt were letting 5th Avenue have it!!! When she came to me and ask, “Are you saved” WELL! I have no time for religious fanaticism whatsoever, but thought, I would indulge her for a minute. Her question to me was this, how can you serve God and an industry that celebrates one of the seven deadly sins…VANITY.
Well, I was not ready for this at all; it totally shattered my face, as they say. So without thought I said, I celebrate “fashion” by wearing high end clothes as praise to God and the temple He has given me. LOL…and bided her a good day. But as I made my way to the subway on 57 Street, I began to think, what does this mean. Got home and Tweeted and Facebooked, “How do you praise God in an industry that celebrates one of the seven deadly sins…vanity.” Well, I knew no one on Twitter would respond, but my Facebook friends rallied, and gave me some very interesting perspectives…in short, I do not celebrate “vanity” nor am I absorbed in Vanity, I dress well as a means of glorifying God, there is a difference. It is like I do not want to only look good for myself but for God as well, I mean He has blessed me with the means to wear YSL and Gucci loafers and whoever else I want to get done up in, so why not…but I am sure God is not in heaven saying werk it Hamilton!
