Modesty is stylish!

I love being a woman, and enjoy showing my femininity through fashion. I often wear dresses and skirts throughout the week; but it can be difficult at times to find modest attire. We live in a culture that objectifies women's bodies, and teaches young girls that they are most valued when baring their skin; this, however, is not the message that I want my girls to learn.

I stumbled across this site, and was while I was attracted to the product, I also loved the mission of this company. This is pulled from Mikarose's site:

"Mikarose is a clothing company that specializes in modest, elegant and fashionable dresses. Our company's idea evolved when the owners realized how difficult it was to find modest dresses in today's market. We are sure you have had similar experiences when looking for a modest dress. After many frustrating outings, we formed Mikarose. Our goal is to provide an extensive line of modest dresses, without having to sacrifice style."




Another product helping women maintain a sense of modesty while still being stylish is the "Bosom Button" which is basically a decorative pin designed to hold your dress or shirt closed. What a great concept; way better than trying to hide a safety pin!

I am so glad I found your new blog! Your bags are too precious (that would explain Georgia new found love for "crafting" frames during free art time!) and I am loving the modesty find. I can't wait to see what you have next! Have a great weekend...
Love ya~
