Far be it from me to submit anything on fashion. But, here I am anyway. Today’s piece may read like something from the queen prude. Oh well. Just call “us”, “Your Highness.”
Years ago, “we” (as in the royal “we”) had to stop reading fashion magazines because we didn’t measure up (or down as it was, in size) to the trends of the day and we would berate us mentally and emotionally.
It was not pretty!
Because of that, you may not deem us qualified to write a simple yet revealing post on fashion for the Church girl. We proceed prudently in doing so anyway. Feel free to leave a comment at the end.
We’ve noticed a trend among the Sistren of all ages in church in the last few years that makes us wonder if we (all of us) are aware of what we look like when leaving home to enter the world and the gathering of our congregations. Furthermore, where were those who love us best when we left and why didn’t they address our…dress? If no one was there, where had we put our mirrors?
Even though we (back to the royal we) may not sport the most up-to-date style or figure, we do know what looks good on a girl and it’s a combination of the following things:
- modesty under the influence of God
- a sweet expression.
“Modesty goes a long way in leaving things to the imagination of those in the presence of one who dresses this way.” – Her Highness, the royal “we” in this post.
|Fashion tips from Her Highness? Oh, but yes!|
The modest dresser knows what looks best on her without being obsessed with her dress. She’s got a godly confidence that accents her ensemble in pure radiance.
As a royal mother of princes, we (my loving husband and I) educated our sons in the why of choosing a girl to date and marry based on several things; one being the way she dressed as a reflection of her relationship with God. (Her relationship with God was the number one thing they were to assess early on in the getting acquainted stage.)
Simply said, modesty is the royal standard that seems to be disappearing in the Church by which The King’s girl or woman dresses.
Dress “it” to God’s glory, wear a smile, and go. Toss in a cultured wave for a bit of flash.
