...that MODEST IS HOTTEST!
Really! Seriously! AND No joke!
Now, I wear knee-length or longer skirts... 3/4 length or longer sleeves...and high necklines...but I just REALLY don't get what is SOOO flattering about showing your legs?? No matter how tall you are and how "good" you think you look...I don't EVEN want to point out things I have seen when I see girls in their shorts and mini skirts. *cringes*
And really....crop tops? ugly-one-color nailpolish? bright and dark lipstick? those too-short-so-you-can-see-everything dresses? wearing leggings as pants? ridiculous Lady Gaga outfits? sky-high heels?
***Don't get me wrong! I love high heels! I have a ton of them!!! I can get all of my shorter-than-5'-5'' friends to shout amen! But some of these ones that I have been seeing lately are just TOO OVER THE TOP... would you like an example?
Do you see what I mean? You have more of a chance of breaking your ankle in these than in the heels I wear. My tallest pair are probably 4 inches...maybe! LOOK AT THOSE! Imagine trying to shout...actually, imagine trying to WALK in those! *tries walking...breaks ankle* omw...thats just too much.***
What ever happened to girls having respect for themselves? I seem to only find that in our kind of churches. Girls, in the world, used to dress appropriately...I had friends who dressed modestly and they weren't in church. I remember being in 6th grade and the short-shorts came in to my school...I actually remember short-shorts back when I was in 1st grade...I saw the older girls wearing them. It was ridiculous and it still is :/
What ever happened to standing up for modesty? *I know most of the girls (and guys) who read my blog, stand up for it. I'm not talking to you. I'm just expressing my feelings on this topic.* It seems like some people just don't care anymore. Some churches are letting go of standards. I remember hearing stories that back in the day (older people were telling me) it was pretty much a shame to be UNmodest. Why can't it be like that now?
And one very important question is...will modesty ever be brought back(into the world)? I know our Apostolic/Pentecostal churches are modest but I'm talking about the world...The fashion...will high necklines and long (our kind of long) skirts ever make their way back? /: It's sad to see girls walking down the streets (and now that summer has come, it'll be even worse) looking so UNmodest...
My Sisters and Brothers who read my blog, let's STAND UP for modesty! Even if you wear a borderline or too-short skirt everyday, people are STILL going to ask you why you wear skirts everyday! (I am not saying that we should wear short skirts!) You might as well wear them BELOW your knee! And guys, the same goes for you and your clothing. *I can't acknowledge you guys very much due to the fact that I am not a guy lol*
I hope you get the message of this post...
MODESTY...you're either for it or against it! Nothing inbetween.
