    They probably wont institute it because it will mess with their money from the faithful. Sad to say.

    So nice of you to say, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside lol. It's really a work in progress, it reminds me of my natural hair journey: it will take time, but I want to really graft it to my whole being so that style becomes effortless for me:yep:.

    Is anyone doing a modest capsule wardrobe? And if so what are your basic pieces?

    Well, I sorta kinda am but the way my shopping addiction is set up though :look:. Made a list of what I need for each season: took an inventory of what I already have and turns out I don't have enough skirts/trousers. So right now I'm focused on that, whenever I'm out shopping, I buy skirts and/trousers first.

    Some people are very strict in this, like Jennifer L. Scott from YouTube, she only has 10 pieces per season. Not sure if I'll go that extreme, I doubt it. My basic pieces for this summer are maxi dresses/skirts, sheath blouses, slacks, tunics + head wraps. Just mixing and matching everything truly helps, this is what I wore today:

    I love your skirt!

    Right now I’m trying to figure out what pieces in my wordrobe need to be replaced. I replaced my skinny jeans with a boyfriend cut jean. To me they are more modest than the skinny cut jean. I plan to pair the jeans with long shirts.

    I also want to add more skirts and dresses to my rotation but I’m not sure what styles I feel most comfortable in. I want them to cover my knees but that is about it. I am going to have to do some shopping before I figure out my new style. Then I will figure out how many pieces I need.

    I wear dresses and long skirts with blazers or bolero knit jackets. I tend to buy classic pieces in 2s or 4s (different colors).. I tend to go classic since the pieces never go out of style lol

    Hi QT, :wave:

    The look is courtesy of StylePantry but the guilded belt isn't available on Aq/Aq, as mentioned. The pants are sold out.. lol

    I did find similar belts on Showpo. and ASOS . I really like that look!

    ETA: the ASOS belt is the same one as the AqAq

    I like the cut of the pants but not the color. I look horrible in yellow.

    I have a question. Where are you ladies getting camisoles that are high enough to actually give coverage in low cut tops? All the camis I have found barely cover the girls so they can’t be used to make low cut tops more modest.

    It’s cute but I’d put a cami underneath it. I think the fit is fine.

    Has anyone had to explain to a friend or relative their change in style yet? My mom wants me to wear some dresses she has picked out for me that I feel are too short or have too high of a split. She isn’t too keen on the concept of modesty right now and I don’t want to make waves. Any suggestions?

    Not sure if these would be considered too short:
