Can We Get Some Spring Up In Here?

It has been Winter for what seems like forever.  We are most certainly living within a vortex, and it seems to be never ending.  Even the CFDA for Fashion Week is full of meteorological trepidation, and we are all running the risk of a stiletto slip with the icy conditions upon us.

For the time being we remain within the parameters of winter dressing, which appropriately involves knits, tights, furs and gloves.  Yet I was still driven to inspire some life into my wardrobe, if only for a day.  I wanted to feel that Spring may be nearer than reality is dictating and so I donned the celebrated White Dress in an attempt to ward off the bout of inevitable Seasonal Affective Disorder we are all slipping into.   I paired it with some black fringed boots and my current leather obsession, the biker jacket.  Wearing white in the Winter, with some black boots for contrast, can feel fresh and fun even in the midst of this freezing whirlwind we now call Home.

Modestly Modified: Leather Leggings

In every modest girl’s life, there are trends we want to indulge in with the rest of the fashion troops, yet we find ourselves…left out.  Boyfriend jeans, harem pants, and the like, are all outside our reach as far as tznius fashion goes.  But sometimes we can navigate within our statutes and achieve sartorial enlightenment through a simple modification of the trend.  Simply put, find a way to wear the trends we can’t, in a way that we can.

Creativity is one of the greatest assets we have as modest fashion fiends, and it is a necessary means to a fabulous end.  A Modestly Modified post can lend insight and inspiration on how to wear the seemingly elusive styles we crave, with a covered-up twist.

Case in point: Leather Leggings.  I layered two tee shirt dresses for a slouchy look over the leggings and added the pumps to make it date night worthy.

Under My Umbrella

It has been raining for two days, and it is very, very wet outside.  Nature’s nurturing aside, it is safe to say that most of us find the rain an obstacle of sorts.  It can put a damper on any modest fashionista’s mood and render our most fabulous outfits useless.  The end result can oftentimes be the most dreary of ensembles and tired of wardrobe choices, sabotaging our fashion inspiration.

Yet with all of the rain’s faults aside, it can also provoke a romance and drama that the fashion-clad can play up, with no real sartorial sacrifice necessary (although I would nix the suede shoes and fur coat).  It is a beautiful backdrop that begs for some brooding; all you really need is your umbrella.  A wet street and a dark sky is fashion fodder for the style constituents who embrace a varying temperament and take the opportunity to try an enigmatic sentiment on for size.  So while you’ve been enduring a near-constant downpour, I have been compiling a modest miscellany of rainy day fashion to inspire the style in all of us.

A Modest Lesson In Layering: The Dress

 

We all do it.  Donning the Sweater and Shirt pairing is fairly popular and a common occurrence.  But you can take it a step further, and trade out these short pieces for the longer dress versions, and create a new way to layer.  I paired it with leather booties and a gold collar under the collar for some edge, and simple detail.

The Street Style Stars Of 2013

With a new year just starting, and the old one behind us, we can certainly expect a fabulous modest-fashion filled 2014.  But it also doesn’t hurt to look back and take note, especially when the subjects are the ladies who rocked our socks in the street style arenas of 2013.  Some were trendy, some were timeless, but they all had one thing in common: Defined personal style.  They led the pack in their stilettos and paved the way for millions of fashion obsessed girls to strive for sartorial greatness, one well-heeled shoe at a time.  These particular street style stars gave us our modest fashion fix on more than one occasion, and for that we love them.
