Hemlines and Happiness

This time of year when we are expressing gratitude, I especially appreciate how women of different faiths can unite on the importance of balancing fashion and modesty. The media distracts women by focusing only on their outer appearance. Raising three daughters makes me so grateful for a sisterhood among women. Together we can celebrate our beautiful divinity and can reflect our knowledge of it in our apparel. Hallie Lord recently wrote a post on The Faith & Family Blog kindly complimenting our Vintage Hems and her appreciation for how they help her keep her modest standards. We love it when people express their favor of our frills, so thank you Halle! And a Happy Thanksgiving to all!
A Little About Hallie Lord:

Hallie Lord married her dashing husband, Dan, in the fall of 2001 (the same year, coincidentally, that she joyfully converted to the Catholic faith). They now happily reside in the deep South with their two energetic boys and two very sassy girls. In her *ample* spare time, Hallie enjoys cheap wine, strong coffee, long runs, fresh flowers, vintage fashion, dark chocolate, Ella Fitzgerald and overpriced candles. She also blogs from time to time about Marriage, Moxie and Modesty with a Vintage Twist at BettyBeguiles.com.

Awww...thank you!

I can't add much to what you've already stated so beautifully...

...but I completely agree. :)

You have my gratitude, as well. Please keep doing what you're doing. You're a blessing to all of us girly girls who value modesty and are suckers for vintage fashion. Love!

AMEN. Modesty is much more alluring IMHO than the slutty look. We all know that advertising works... girls, what are YOU advertising? Is it what you want? Many girls think they are advertising available for love when all they are advertising is available for sex.
