Let's Talk Fall Fashion October 15 2016Fall has arrived and let's face it, these gorgeous fall colors are EVERYWHERE. So, let's talk about the must have colors for this fall season.
First off, the beloved mustard. This is probably my favorite color for fall. I know, I know, not all of us can rock the full on mustard dresses and sweaters because the yellow drowns out our skin, but that's what leggings are for! Pair some mustard colored leggings with a navy dress and a cream or white cardigan and you've got an adorable fall outfit. If you are one of those lucky ladies who can wear mustard everything, then your option are ENDLESS! Mustard dresses, cardigans, scarves... give me all the mustard colored clothes!
Next is burgundy. This color is GORGEOUS and there are so many different shades. Guess what! We just released the new burgundy colored Gracie Dress ( http://www.modestpop.com/collections/dresses/products/gracie-dress-burgundy) and it is to-die-for. This color can seriously go with anything. You can pair it with navy, black, grey and even that wonderful mustard color we were just talking about! If you don't have anything this color in your closet, you might want to fix that ;)
Lastly, we've got olive green. My personal favorite is an olive green vest. You can pair it with jeans and a top, a dress, leggings... you name it! If vests aren't your thing, have no fear, they make olive EVERYTHING right now! You want leggings? Done! Dresses? Got it! This color is a timeless color to add some fall feel to the rest of your wardrobe. Maybe you have a gorgeous floral print top that you think might have too much of a summer vibe, well, grab that olive vest I was talking about, some black leggings and cute booties and your fave floral summer top just became your go-to fall shirt!
The modest outfit possibilities are endless when it comes to fall, that's what makes it my favorite time of year! Now, let's get shopping!

Prom Season is Here!! May 09 2016What girl doesn't want to be asked to the Prom? It is a huge milestone for so many girls, one they have been looking forward to for probably years. Yet sometimes looking for that perfect dress can be challenging, especially when they don't want to compromise their standards just to fit in with the latest prom dress trends. I remember back when I was faced with this challenge, and to be honest it was a very hard and long process trying to look for a dress that I would fall in love with while still keeping it modest looking. And let me tell you, without the internet at our fingertips like we have today, this was EXTRA, EXTRA hard! haha But you know the saying "Patience is a Virtue"?...I started early enough where I was able to find a Modest Prom Dress that I was in love with! And when my date arrived at the door to pick me up... to hear him say how beautiful he thought I looked, made it all worth it!! We would love to see you wearing your Modest Prom Dress...Follow us on Instagram and DM a picture to us looking your Prom Best and we will choose a few to post on here and on Instagram!
Modest Celebrity Trends December 16 2015
It's always fun seeing celebrities dressed modestly. This Fall and Winter season, it seems like the trend is not just covered shoulders, but covered everything. Dresses are long and sweeping with high necks. The look is very elegant. I love how Jennifer Laurence and Emily Blunt had their hair done in a feminine updo to show off the entirety of the dress. Jennifer's look is more casual with a soft loose braid and Emily's red carpet look is more elegant and dressed up. Emma is wearing a floral ankle length dress with strappy sandals and pulls off the look with loose pretty curls. Which look would you rather wear and why?
One of the reasons I enjoy seeing celebrity women dressed modestly is that it really brings attention to the beauty, details and design of the dress AND because it draws attention to the beauty and radiance of their face, instead of summoning attention to a certain body part that their outfit is showing off. So instead of noticing their chest or thigh, you get to see the beauty of the PERSON shine through, which isn't competing for attention by the body part. I think they all look lovely and I hope more celebrities make the decision to wear modest dresses to events and award ceremonies.

Modest is Hottest! July 23 2015
Sometimes its hard to stay cool, and stay modest during the summer heat. TODAY.com wrote an article with tips on how to beat the warm summer heat and remain modest.
They have 5 helpful tips including:
- Remember that looser is cooler. Looser clothes helps air circulate creating a cooler feel and making the summer heat a little more bearable. Wearing things like maxi dresses, skirts, and flowy tops are the best options for staying cool and modest. Try our modest dresses, skirts, and tops such as the Michelle Maxi Dress, Aztec Maxi Skirt, and our Floral Scoop Neck Top.
- Avoid the urge to layer. Because of today's society and clothing, more and more clothes are coming in not as modest styles such as tank tops and shorter skirts, people are feeling the need to layer up. However, layering up can lead to over heating. By choosing clothes that cover where you want it too without having to layer too much, it can make things so much cooler. At ModestPop, we have many tops and skirts that are perfectly modest, and don't need to be layered.
- Choose the right fabrics for the season. Choose lighter fabrics for clothing is very helpful for staying cool. Choose lightweight fabrics that are breathable in the summertime like cotton, chambray, silk, and linen.
- Make friends with maxi!! The article says, "because of their length, choosing a variety of maxi skirts and dresses in breathable, lightweight fabrics is a sure way to remain covered but cool" Try our fun and modest maxi skirts and dresses.
- Finally, have fun with accessories. The article says, "finding simple, modest outfits that you feel comfortable in, and changing up their day-to-day look through the use of accessories."

Pencil Skirt Style Guide May 28 2015
Ever wonder the best way to make your pencil skirt look great? Lucky Magazine wrote a piece on this recently. Here is what they say:
"Why It Works: The strong up-and-down shape of pencil skirt reins in the flowy fabric up top while heels lengthen the look. Try to avoid traditional pumps—closed or peep-toe—though! It might come off as too corporate."
Here's the link for the full article: http://www.luckyshops.com/slideshow/outfit-formulas#slide-1

A Skirt I'm So Excited About August 21 2014
Anyone who's followed ModestPop for a while knows that our most popular skirt has been the Sydney Skirt. It comes in 4 colors, has pockets and includes an adorable bow belt. What's not to love? The hardest thing about selling this skirt, though, is that when I buy it from the vendor I can only get one large in a pack. It's mandatory to buy wholesale clothes from most vendors in pre-packs. So the pre-pack for the Sydney Skirt is one large, 2 mediums, and 2 smalls. The problem with that is that this skirt runs a bit small, so anyone who usually wears a large typically can't fit into a large (unless she is small-waisted) and most girls who wear mediums would need a large. So that leaves me with customers buying the large size really quick and a big pile of smalls that sell slowly. It's tough because people always ask when I'm going to get more larges in and I never have enough on hand to sell.
Well, another vendor that I buy MOST of my clothes from just designed a skirt that is almost EXACTLY like the Sydney Skirt. It comes in 5 colors, has the same pleated look, and has pockets. It also has belt loops. And, best part, it comes in sizes XS-XXL, so I never have to worry about lack of size options. I don't have the same pre-pack problem with this vendor as I do the one that makes the Sydney Skirt. So, I'm thinking, problem solved!
These adorable Cotton Pleated Skirts are modest. They come past the knee and are available to ship out in mid September, although I highly recommend pre-ordering one sooner because they will probably sell out by mid September and then people will have to wait for October or November for them to be restocked. That seems so far away. So order now!

Express Yourself May 02 2014
Do you dress to just cover your body or are you aiming to express yourself? What are you trying to express?
Creativity, happiness, style, confidence in modesty?
These two memes made me smile. They remind me that no matter what I am, I should be a good one. (paraphrased from Gordon B. Hinckley)
How Would YOU Style It? April 12 2014
What Is Your Favorite Thing to Wear? April 08 2014
What's the first thing you think about when you're deciding to buy an item? What questions do you ask?
- Will it look good on me?
- Is the price right?
- Will I wear it enough to make it worth it?
Instead of focusing on those questions, answer this one first: What are some of my favorite things to wear?
Answering that question can give you insights into whether something is worth buying or not.
For me, I have a few staple items that I always go back to. One is the Elle Top. It's flattering, works when you're pregnant, and is versatile. I can wear a belt with it to make it look more shapely or just let it be a relaxed fit top that falls loosely. I can accessorize it to fancy it up or just wear it to the park with my kids. When I can't decide what to wear that day, it's a quick solution and something that I know will be comfortable, easy, and stylish.
Another go-to item that I like to wear to church is a maxi dress. I have a couple I alternate between. I like them because they are only one piece of fabric. Instead of trying to make something immodest modest by layering and adding a tank, undershirt, and/or cardigan, I can just put it on and then accessorize from there. It's fast and reliable.
The maxi dresses I love and Elle Tops I wear often I wouldn't call cheap buys. They aren't outrageous either. They lie in between. But if you value an item at how many times you can wear and how it makes getting dressed a simpler process, then spending a little extra for something good makes sense.
Florals Make Me Think of Spring March 12 2014 1 Comment
Right around this time of year is when I start really looking forward to Spring. Easter is right around the corner and floral patterns are popping up in the stores. Last week on Facebook we asked followers to vote on their favorite floral dress. We posted six photos and the four clear winners were the three new dresses on the top of the homepage: www.modestpop.com this one that we are still waiting on manufacturer approval to make available for sale (excuse the low neckline, we don't have a sample of the dress to put on a model and wear differently).Thanks goodness maxi dresses are in style! It makes finding a dress that's long enough to be modest a MJCH easier task.
The great thing about the blue and pink floral print knee length dresses is that they are long enough too. If you are wearing a size small and are 5 foot 7, it will hit you at the middle of your knee cap. If you are wearing a size medium or large, you can add about 1/2-3/4 inch to the length of the dress for each size you go up.
No matter the weather where you live, warming up or cold, I hope these floral patterns cheer you up and make you excited for the Spring days ahead.

Be Bold. Be Modest. February 22 2013
It's not bold any more to wear a tiny strapless dress that emphasizes everything on your body but your face. It's not bold to show off nearly your entire body at the beach. It's normal. It's what you see everywhere, whether on a screen or in real life. Girls and women are taught to "flaunt whatcha got", to use their bodies to gain attention so they can feel powerful and beautiful. This blog post isn't about judging people. It's easy to fall into that type of thinking because it is so commonplace now.
My point is that if you want to be bold and stand out, try modesty instead. Dress so that attention doesn't go primarily to body parts. Dress so that people admire your face and admire the design and fabric of the clothes that cover you up. Dress to bring attention to the gleam in your eyes and your smile. Use your clothes as a way to express your personality, so when people see you they admire your creativity and individuality, instead of going out skimpily clad so all people can do is stare at your body parts. If you want people to know and appreciate the real you, dress modestly, don't dress to be a distraction that people will stare at.
Be proud of dressing modestly. When people ask you why you don't follow the crowd, let them know why without being judgmental. Dressing modestly brings more confidence than dressing immodestly, because you know that people appreciate the real you and not just the sexual appeal of your body. Dressing modestly doesn't mean you can't be sexy. Some people, men and women, feel that it accentuates beauty. Feeling confident and beautiful is more about attitude and self-esteem anyway and less about what you're wearing. So wear it well and don't get lost in a crowd. Be bold, be yourself, and be modest.
