    I like the idea of the dress but the split is too high for me personally. I would throw some leggings underneath and wear it as a top.

    How high does the slit come up when you sit down? The first one looks like it would leave nothing to the imagination when you sit down or cross your legs.

    Not really, yellow is a nice color but I wouldn't wear yellow pants. For some reason, I don't like light pastel colors in pants.

    That neckline is a little low for me as well. I don't like to wear tops that are so low cut that you can see the line that divides my breasts. I feel like I'm constantly readjusting the tops so my breasts don't show.

    I find that I always have to account for the curves which will take the fit of an otherwise innocent looking dress to kabam! land in 3 secs flat.

    These would be fine with a slip. Women used to wear slips for that very reason anything inadvertently blown by the wind no undies show. There are smooth spanx like material modern slips.

    Church cocktail or work. At Nordstrom rack right now.

    Great chic and comfy travel style.
    Faux fur knitted sweater poncho
    And some black jeans or faux black leather pants or black cigarette slacks and boots gloves if it’s a little cooler or you just want to be extra stylish ;).
    I :love: cozy wraps and ponchos for travelling cause it workslike a 2 for 1 poncho and mini blanket. especially since you have to pay for blankets or that flimsy cloth that they pass off as a blanket and alot of time now no blankets at all. At fabulous furs right now just the poncho.

    Some of these can do double duty work and church some can even work for travel. Of course lower heels and flats can be switched out for the stilettos or black base instead of navy slacks instead of jeans for work etc...

    Now I am a woman of a certain age but....You all who are interested in modest stylist dress should check out the midi dresses from Maggy London. They have many options with sleeves, hitting below the knee and options for every occasion. I just ordered a few and I think the quality is great for work, church or (some) cocktail events.

    I love this style and especially the 'soft rose' color. The sweater is adorable. Thanks @Lucia for sharing this. It made me 'smile' from the inside / out :yep:

    Where did you find this? I'd love to add this to my wardrobe.

    I found it on this fashion articles blog site called style debates
    https://styledebates.com/

    This look you have to piece together from different places. The jacket is classic Chanel there are plenty of good imitators out there without the hefty Chanel price tag. The Dress is a simple pale pink midi shift dress or pencil dress shoes and purse all those you can find on any dept store website.
    You can try ASOS, lipsy, pretty dress company they have a lot of classic feminine pastel dresses.
    A lot of my fashion inspirations I find on polyvore, Pinterest or fashionable celebs and royalty. There’s blogs that tell you how copy the designer look for less ie where to find type blogs. Just google it you’ll find tons of stuff the most glam outrages stuff is on Pinterest and I also watch the NYC fashion weeek and some of my favorite prêt à porter designers on YouTube. Then I go and find them and piece my fav looks together.
    Some classic designers I follow that always deliver beautiful timeless fashions are:
    Yves Saint Laurent
    Oscar de la Renta
    Carolina Herrera
    Diane Von Furstenbrg
    Donna Karen
    Ralph Lauren
    St John
    Hth

    What are you ladies doing for gym clothes?

    I know everyone has their own level of modesty but I’m not into cut outs or peak a boo tops and leggings. It seems that work out wear is harder than regular clothes.

    I did find leggings with a skirt attached that covers my behind but I could use more suggestions.

    Good question. I just wear regular gym clothes Capri or long pants I do wear shorts but not too short. Add I don’t wear bra tops only I wear a regular length shirt that covers my abs. I don’t see anything wrong with a crop top but I usually don’t wear that all the time since my abs aren’t where I want them yet.
    I don’t wear the hochie mama type workout clothes that leave nothing to the imagination at all
