This Girl Solved the Modesty Issue for Me8:00 AM
Well, after all my ramblings, it's come to my attention that Karen over at Appetite of Living actually solved the modesty issue. I'll let her have the last word on this week on modesty.
So are spaghetti strap tops really modest? How about jeans? How about shorty-shorts?
How about you stop asking questions about what you can or can't wear, take a look at your culture, and say, "How do I want to present myself?" If you want to present yourself as a hooker, go ahead -- just don't expect to be treated like someone running for president. If you want to present yourself as frump-girl, that's your choice -- just don't expect to land many jobs as a department store model. If you'd rather be known for your brains and not your body, wearing a spaghetti strap top in the office probably won't help you with that.
Dressing for everyone else's standards is an impossible road. It's also impossible to walk down the street without being automatically labeled based on the clothes you wear.
So it's up to you! It's up to where the Lord has you right now! It's up to how you choose you want to present yourself! Perhaps some things I personally wear may be called immodest by certain groups of people, but I don't anticipate ever being mistaken for a hooker, and that is good enough for me.
Read the rest here: Hookers, Heroines, Boys, Girls, and Where the Neckline Should Be. There's even adorable photos of khaki skirts and tucked-in shirts. :)
And I'll finally cave and show you a photo of my typical style way back when. Come to think of it, my longest blog followers probably remember similar photos.
Despite the long skirt, I still managed to save my sister from drowning. Must've been my way-cool sneakers.
