Modest is Hottest
At least, it kinda seems like it this year. This is a topic I don't normally delve into, especially as I sit here, clad in holey sweats, my scruffy hair in a pony tail, with my rooster-tailed son sitting on my lap "helping" me type.
But I have to say... did anyone look at the Golden Globe dresses? I really don't care about the Golden Globe awards, but I do like to look at the dresses sometimes... And invariably I think, that's pretty, but I could NEVER wear it. Too much skin! Well, that, and the most formal event I ever go to is church every week.
So, anyway. I was happy to see that some of the dresses at the GG's this year actually provide some coverage! I'm talking about this one, this one, this one, and this one (Some of these are only modest if you ignore the backs).
Fashion is such a fast-changing industry that I would be very surprised if this new modest trend lasts for more than about 30 seconds. But for those 30 seconds, maybe us modest girls can enjoy finding more things in the store that will actually cover us up. These ladies sure are. I know I will.
As long as nobody expects me to embrace those "boyfriend pants" that they cuff and pair with ankle booties. Seriously. I am barely able to deal with the existence of the skinny jean.
