For 5 years, I’ve been learning more and more about the importance of dressing modestly as a Christian woman. Oh, it hasn’t been easy! Not with all of those adorable tank tops out there! But, God has been teaching me so much about what it means to glorify Him in all things. When I look at it that way, it’s a bit easier to forego the latest tightest tank.
Last year, my New Year’s Resolution was to avoid compromising in the area of dressing modestly. Of course, the definition of “modest dress” varies from people group to people group, but I made a commitment before God to pursue modest dress as He has taught me. I found Pure Freedom’s Truth or Bare Fashion Tests to be helpful guidelines for evaluating my wardrobe.Â I relied on God’s spirit to keep me balanced and personal. I must say that, even including the handful of times that I knowingly compromised, the resolution was fulfilling and liberating.
At the close of the year, I was reflecting on my clothes of the year (yes, I’m impressed by that pun, too), when I discovered that my friend, Sarah Mae, was hosting a Modesty Fashion Show on her incredible blog, Like a Warm Cup of Coffee.
I decided to participate in her celebration of dressing modestly!
And now, introducing ME as the RUNWAY ANNOUNCER! (Pump up some music!)
“Our next model is sporting a babydoll shirt that the saleslady called a dress. Boy, was she wrong! Paired with dark denim and a corduroy blazer, this immodest dress converts into a shirt with personality. Stylists removed the sash from the waist-band and looped it around the neck for extra flare.Â The perfect jacket is a fabulous tool to change a problematic shirt into a modest outfit. Give it up for Laura and her photographer!”
Ooo, and while I’m at it, I need to tell you about Sarah Mae’s fantastic $25 Christa-Taylor gift-certificate give-away! You can enter, too!
