    I hear ya
    I would wear contrasting colors that are in the lining like people used to do in the 40's -60's (ex they would wear a crisp white coat with red or blue lining, red or blue dress underneath, and wear red or blue heels purse, hat and gloves scarf) Theres some good inspiration in the old movies with Doris Day and Down with Love (Renee Zellweger)
    so I'd pair that suit with burgundy or maroon silk shell or blouse accessories like envelope clutch and heels to match the lining that flashes under the peplum and the buttons. If I wanted to take it up a notch I'd wear a burgundy fascinator or large brim hat and gloves-BAM! First Lady style, indeed.

    I also admire Folorunsho Alakija's style and clothing (and Nigerian fashion in general):

    I agree :yep: Black or grayvboots are much better. I really like that gray poncho.

    The other styles were nice for casual :yep: I need to step up my game.

    The classic 1950's. I call these the "I love Lucy" fashions.

    The first pick with our culture ... Beautiful!

    We all need a break sometimes we're human. What helped me not fall completely off the style wagon when I'm not going all out with my outfits is I gave away the stuff I don't wear anymore, and stuff that's not cute, I threw out all my old, torn, beyond repair clothes and slowly replaced them with cute casual comfy stuff, that I could easily wear and mix and match casual pieces that are classic and cute, nice flats, and sneakers, flat boots, hats, beanies (for those bad hair days). I have a set of velour sweat set, like glam sweats instead of regular sweats to lounge or run errands in, I match those with flat cute sneakers, or flats accessorize with big earrings, top bun, purse and I'm done.

    ❤❤❤❤❤

    These are very nice. I was just having prayer, before I saw your posts. I was sharing with the Lord to lead and guide me with necessary changes. He answered my prayers with you sharing these posts above. Thank you. ❤❤❤

    My friend has that skirt. The material is thick and the skirt is well made. It's beautiful in person. That's how I first heard of the site. My friend also mentioned that if you like something order it, because they make a limited number of items, but that they also come up with new stuff pretty frequently and shipping is pretty fast since they are in the UK.

    My biggest dilemma with dressing modestly is finding casual skirts to wear. I don't always want to be #teamoverdressed. At the end of the summer I got a lot of casual dresses from LOFT on clearance.

    I only wear skirts or dress with sleeves, but I always make sure my clothes are properly fitted vs. sack like. @Lucia I love the articles you posted on the first page about how as Christians we need to make sure our clothes aren't polarizing. Who would want to talk/relate to me if I look like Little House on the Prairie (obviously looks aren't everything but if we're trying to reach the lost we need to be approachable)? :lachen:

    I mainly shop at Ann Taylor, Loft, J.Crew, Old Navy, Gap and Abercrombie. Sometimes I find modest clothes at Target and Forever 21. I've bought a cute dress or two from Land's End too although I find their clothes are a little mature for me and their sizing is usually too big. I've also bought two nice dresses from Eshakti and they're good quality.

    This is my style, simple and modest.
