modesty 101; vol. 3: dresses
Dresses are another pet peeve for me. I despise seeing girls walk around in those supper short, bubbly, awkward ones. Gag! I also don't like wearing them myself. It's not that I don't like them or am against feminism; rather I feel restrained and confined. Claustrophobic almost.
Anyhow, that's beside the point. Dresses, while they are a lovely way to dress up and sport a woman's unique and elegant attributes, they've become scandalous. Mainly in in the shortness of the skirt and the cut of the neckline. Dresses still retain (if they are modest) their essence of femininity and grace, but when scaled down to the standards of the average woman of today, you might as well wear a feed-sack (they're likely to be more modest!).
The dresses out there today on the racks are cute (on a manikin), but hold an alarming air of immodesty that must not go unnoticed. Provocative and indecent, dresses (the ones that hold a tasteless mystery), tend to expose more that just they womanly figure. Over the years, while out standards of clothing have greatly declined, the dress (or gown) has taken a turn for the worst. And while some heroines are doing their best to erect the classic elegance of a modest dress, the sheer number of immodest dresses can be cumbersome and overwhelming.
So, today, my mission is to expose those nasty immodest dresses for what they are and, hopefully, give you all an idea of how to look shamelessly cute and feminine without compromising your modesty and virtue.
