I’d like to blame my absence on work, life, and more important things, but the truth is this: I got a little tired of blogging. Couple that with some negative feedback and it was enough for me to truly consider quitting blogging altogether.
I’ve never professed to be some fashion “guru” or “know it all”, because I’m not. I know what I like and like what I wear. I never sought out to blog about modest fashion with the desire to promote my own ideas in regards to modesty.
I don’t wear pants. I don’t criticize others who wear pants. With the exception of a watch or a brooch every now and then, I don’t wear jewelry. I don’t wear makeup. There are a lot of things that I don’t wear or do and I have no problem reading other blogs where bloggers portray themselves in things that I wouldn’t buy.
So, when I got several emails and anonymous comments from ladies (I’m assuming) who questioned why I was wearing a brooch, and stated why a modest dress of the day wasn’t really modest, and why was I wearing heels greater than 2 inches, and why did I wear so much color, and who did I think I was to feature people with jewelry as modest beauties, I knew I had to decide if I really wanted to be a “modest fashion blogger”.
Then I realized that 9 negative comments were no comparison to the kind emails I receive from many ladies. A lady from Egypt. Another from Israel. A girl from Florida. A young mother from Texas. All were appreciative of my blog and stated that they were inspired to keep dressing modestly.
I know dressing modestly is only a minor piece in my Christian living. I know there is so much more to living (and life!) than shoes, clothing, accessories, Facebook, Twitter, thrifting, and the latest and greatest in fashion.
I’m not here to dictate to you what you should and should not wear. If you like what I post, great. If you hate what I post, that’s fine too. If you would like to agree to disagree, I’m on board with that.
Excuse me while I reevaluate the direction of MoMoMod.
Now! Today I wore:
*vintage circa 1980s skirt that I picked up at Goodwill for $2.75
*Gap blouse for $8
*Victoria’s Secret shoes (Elizabeth & James knock offs and I think E&J knocked off Brian Atwood or Charlotte Olympia) $59
*Old patent leather belt
Mustard an black is one of many color combinations that I love. What are your favorite color combos? (BTW, the tiny pinprick of a mark that you see in the first picture is a bumblebee. We matched!)
