A few days after Thanksgiving, I was out shopping with my Moma, Mamaw, Aunt Anita, and my little cousin Hannah. Browsing the sale rack Moma and I found the most adorable denim dress. I tried it on and it was too short, but we dedided to get it anyway, thinking we could get a little bit of fabric to lengthen it. Before leaving the dressing room I decided to try it on with my jeans, wearing it as a long shirt instead of a dress. I loved it! So, Moma bought it for me and saved it for Christmas:-)
In today's world, sometimes we have to be creative when it comes to being modest and still wearing what we like. Sometimes it means trying something that you wouldn't normally think of trying, i.e. wearing pants under a dress that is too short. I'm not saying that this works with everything. Sometimes I might LOVE something, but still put it back on the rack because I know that there isn't way to make it modest without looking tacky.
I really like experimenting with different outfits and wearing cute clothes, but modesty always comes first! As a Christian young lady, it is my responsibility to do my best to raise my Christian brothers up in my dress. In wearing immodest clothing, I am placing myself in front of my brothers in Christ as a stumbling block in their Christian walk! Yes, Christian guys have the responsibilty to control their thoughts and eyes, but we (Christian girls) have a responsibility to help them in their Christian walk, just as they have a responsibility to help us along.
Dressing modestly does not mean that you have to walk around wearing dresses that fit like sacks! But, it will mean that Christian girls will have to be mindful of anything that comes in our closets. I hope to give ya'll some ideas as well as learn from ya'll about being creative with our wardrobes while dressing modestly :-)
