Girls Going Mild(er)

Newsweek had an interesting article that I found online earlier this week. According to some "experts" our culture is beginning to see a budding interest in the concept of dressing modestly. Here is an excerpt from the article that I thought most girls would find helpful and maybe even encouraging.

Consider the following style tips for girls: skirts and dresses should fall no more than four fingers above the knee. No tank tops without a sweater or jacket over them. Choose a bra that has a little padding to help disguise when you are cold. These fashion hints may sound like the prim mandates of a 1950s "health" film. But they are from the Web site of Pure Fashion, a modeling and etiquette program for teen girls whose goal is "to show the public it is possible to be cute, stylish and modest." Pure Fashion has put on 13 shows in 2007 featuring 600 models. National director Brenda Sharman estimates there will be 25 shows in 2008. It is not the only newfangled outlet for old-school ideas about how girls should dress: ModestApparelUSA.com, ModestByDesign.com and DressModestly.com all advocate a return to styles that leave almost everything to the imagination.

I'm not sure if this is a "Christian" movement or not, but either way it would be very nice to see more clothes on women theses days :) click here to read the entire article.

Thank you Kyle for posting this…. It was definitely very encouraging to me! It is very difficult for girls these days to dress “modestly” when our culture thinks the opposite. I was actually listening to a message by Carolyn Mahaney last night on 1 Peter 3:3-5….It talks about how women shouldn’t let there adorning be external but, to let our adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. Carolyn said “A gentle and quiet spirit is a steadfast peace because of steadfast trust in God.” How encouraging! Thanks for helping your sisters fight the battle to protect our brothers in Christ!
