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

Thanks again to Independent Fashion Bloggers for choosing my post on fashion in film this week! I have not reviewed the rest of the links here, so please go through them with caution. I am continuing the trend of selecting and including my own links along with every Links á la Mode feature I get. So this week, I have a few thought-provoking posts written by friends, who I am very proud of, that I wanted to share with you all. The selection that I have for you below is a bit more content heavy than some of my usual picks, but I strongly feel that they shouldn’t be left unnoticed.

Making it Your Own

Edited by WIT & Whimsy

One of the best parts about fashion is that it is translated differently by everyone.  It’s infused in everything we do in many respects and this week’s Links a la Mode highlight that whether your style is haute couture or vintage, trendy or thirfted, style is very much ownable and deeply personal.

I’m thrilled to have this be my inaugural editing of the IFB Links a la Mode, looking forward to seeing everyone’s posts throughout the year!

Links à la Modest


Thank you Gayle for this pretty lace blouse!


  • Why The Burlesque Show is Almost Over- Written by friend David Gasten (guest blogging on UK online magazine The Thing Is…) who I interviewed in the past.
  • Ex-Porn Stars Speak Out-  Friend Victoria Tiedemann of Ruby-Eyed Okapi reports on ex-porn stars’ testimonies
  • John Berger’s Ways of Seeing- I was introduced to poignant John Berger’s book and BBC series through Laura from From Those About to Shop. My favorite lines from this video clip include: “To be naked is to be oneself. To be nude is to be seen naked by others and yet not recognized for oneself. A nude has to be seen as an object in order to be a nude.” It is very introspective of the way men see women and vice versa. I must warn you that there is nudity in this.
  • A Punk and a Preacher- Mono Syznal writes on Vivienne Westwood’s philosophy
  • Red Carpet Premiere of The Grace Card- My friend Lisa is the costume designer of The Grace Card that just came out in major theaters two weeks ago. I have not seen it, but if you’re interested, go check it out!
  • Giveaway for $100 ShopBop gift card- Ends TODAY (3/7) at 3PM EST

  1. SHey

    Your hat is amazing!!!

    awww thanks. but it is “Ex-Porn Stars Speak Out”. . .since there are more than one that speak that I mentioned, but I can understand how it would be confused to think that I meant only shelley lubben since I wrote mainly about her, so people might think I made a mistake on the title, but I didn’t. hehe.

    I like this MODEST links!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Rachel @ à la Modest

    Corrected :)

    Thanks for the inclusion, Rachel. John Berger definitely has some eye-opening ideologies. I’m glad I was introduced to him. He should be required reading/viewing to understand how deeply-ingrained objectification is!
