À LA MODEST :: Conservative Indie Fashion Style Blogger - a la modest - a la mode st. - conservative indie style blog blogger


Hi, my name is Rachel! Welcome to my modest abode.  This blog is my platform for expressing ideas on style that reflect women confident of their own beauty and worth without the need to put out because of public pressure through a creative mix of vintage and modern apparel.

To learn more about what this blog stands for, here are some of my essential posts from Philosophy category of À LA MODEST:


My favorite styles are based on my love of past decades’ pop or underground culture, music, movies/shows, and art scene. I simply love the conservative but shapely women of the 50s and the vibrancy of the 60s. I look to American, French, and Russian beauties for makeup inspiration.

As for the music, the late 70s and early 80s tunes are my life’s soundtracks. I am obsessed with new wave, synthpop, and post punk—but I like a good variety. The Pixies, The Cure, Metric, Depeche Mode, Raveonettes are just but a few on my list. Movies that I gravitate towards are dystopian sci-fi, psychological, fantasy, biopics, and documentaries of interest—but of course, I also love a good laugh. I am  attracted to postmodern books, but they make me somewhat anxious. Would you like to read my posts on music or movies?

I follow the Bulletproof way of eating (high saturated fat + organic + low mycotoxins + grass fed + low carb + gluten free + no sugar). I am a soon to be fitness instructor, and I practice yoga and Pilates. You can read more about my health and fitness journey.

I started making websites when I was 10 or 11 years old around the late 90s. I went to school for IT (Web Development + Computer Graphics), but now I blog and sell vintage online with my husband Rob. We are both Christians and conservatives.

The designers that capture my imagination are Alexander McQueen, Ann Demeulemeester, Rick Owens, and Helmut Lang.
