Both of our daughters need a new church dress or two for winter. I have reluctantly realized that we are probably past the days of the cute, smocked dresses – although I might be able to persuade my seven-year-old to wear one! My nine-year-old definitely has her own taste in clothing styles; it’s sometimes different than mine, but thankfully still age-appropriate.
I recently heard a speaker on the radio addressing the topic of modesty. One of his statements stuck in my mind: “Let the arrows of your fashion point to your face.”
I find this advice helpful for myself as well as my daughters. I want the clothes we buy and wear to direct attention to our face – not other parts of our body. Somehow I don’t think many fashion designers have quite the same view in mind!
I’m grateful for department stores that still carry dresses that allow my girls to look like….girls – not teenagers or young women. So with that in mind, we’ll make a few stops and see what we can find. If we have any success, I’ll share a picture next week!
