Before her mission Breksa Shimai was a student - and dressed like one; jeans, T-shirts from one or another camp, hair in a pony-tail, and usually a red rain jacket with a hole burned on the side.
Below are some of the photos of Breksa Shimai's mission wardrobe. With a little planning and a limited amount of clothing, there were over 60 choices of outfits.
The choices were made and photographed and printed in a sampler format. The intention was to make choosing an outfit as simple as finding the pieces and matching them 'exactly as shown.'
|The scarf on the dark blue shirt is a scarf that Sister Shimai's mother, Sister Hansen, wore on her mission to Illinois.|
|Thrift Town suit! The paper says, "with pearl earrings."|
