When I stumbled upon Covenant Gear, I quickly realized that this wasn’t just another Christian t-shirt company to add on to the pile of the many faith-based graphic tee companies out there. First off, “Jesus Freak,” “True Love Waits,” “Modest is Hottest” weren’t on any of their t-shirts. There’s nothing wrong about these slogans in themselves of course, but frankly, they are expected to be everywhere. No, there was something different about them.
I think we’ve all seen enough cheesy, eyesore dresses online and at boutiques. For that reason, it’s enough for you to not come back to websites that only specialize in evening gowns. Sifting through the granny-like and boring selections, you can actually find some really dreamy (and modest) gowns. I was pretty impressed, for example, at what this website called Promtimes had. I decided to make a small collection of floor-length formal dresses perfect for spring!
Before the clothing police knock on my door, I do want to point out that I am at home in these photos. This is pretty much what I wear, my stijl around the house during the winter: A cozy baggy sweater, leggings, and butt/back coverage, which in this case is a skirt. I wear leggings a lot while at home, because this is where I do most of my stretches and relaxation.
Contrary to what you might think based on what you see on À LA MODEST, I actually wear jeans and sneakers a lot. I was never really a jeans-and-sneakers kind of person in the past. Being a girl who likes to move a lot now, it’s necessary to wear comfortable clothes. I like wearing statement coats and scarves on top of casual clothes, just to mask the whole laid back and lazy look with something more put together.
Winter is a time when many of us are feeling sad and lonely, regardless of circumstance. I find myself feeling most vulnerable on winter nights—the combination of cold weather and early darkness just tears me down. I am mostly introverted, but when the sun goes down, I am often needing and wanting company.
