Modest Dressing – 4

Today I am modeling my dress down look. This was written yesterday, on Sunday, and I had stuff to do inside the house, and ran a few errands. I live in my denim skirts. I have a few, but my two current favourites are the ankle length one I am wearing here, and a black denim one, that is also long and straight.

When I am dressed down, I generally won’t wear a sheitel (wig), unless I feel it’s necessary – like if I am going to a shiur or something. I always try to match my tichel (headscarf) to what I am wearing. I do like to match. Sometimes I over-match, but that’s just me. I am not very good with patterns, so I generally shy away from them.

The beauty of an outfit such as this, is that I can do a quick change and dress it up if I need to. Throw on a wig, swap out the blue top for a fitted jacket, put my lenses in, add a little more make up, and it’s a whole nother look.

Tichel

Tichel – $7.00 from DoubleHeaderUSA .The tichel is lovely – the pattern is a little different from the usual Israeli style tichel and is beautiful, especially for this time of year with the leaves falling from the trees. I love the size too – folded over into a triangle it still covers all my hair and leaves plenty of room.

Glasses from ZenniOptical  $12.95 (it’s hard to tell but they are black with hot pink).

Necklace

Necklace from DoubleHeaderUSA. I love this necklace – it’s a long strand of blue and black glittery beads, and so versatile. Here I have knotted it at chest level, but it could look more dressy as a three strand choker.

White long sleeve tee shirt from Old Navy Kids -$6.99 on sale 2 years ago

Blue wrap top – $11.99, JACOB 3 years ago

Bangles

Bangles from DoubleHeaderUSA. The bracelets / bangles in blue and black complement the necklace very well – but unfortunately are way too big for my skinny little wrists. Perhaps I should wear them above the elbow as cuffs?

Long denim skirt – $79.99, Ruthie’s (This is much more than I would usually spend on a denim skirt, however, I know I will get years of use out of it and it fits me well. I am as comfy in it as I would be in a pair of jeans).

Pretty Booties

Mid-calf denim boots – beaded and embroidered,  $39.99 Winners 3 winters ago.  Ah!! I love these boots. Totally impractical for winter and snow, but perfect for this time of year. They come up to mid calf, so I generally wear them under a very long skirt as I don’t want my legs to look stumpy. They are whimsical and classic and always elicit comments wherever I go.

    Very à la mode. I love the tichel/shirt pairing, and the necklace adds just the right touch of splash to the look… well done. You look wonderful!

    With your tiny wrists, you’d probably fit into our children bangles! Check out our site and I think you’d love our Skinny Mini. It’s a fairly inexpensive bangle and you can totally dress it up because it has the gold and cz stones! In the summer I wore two white Skinny’s and in the winter will mix it up with a black or gray.

    I have a question here, forgive me if i sound a tad naive. For someone who talks a lot about tzniut and sends their kids to “right wing” schools, isnt modeling on a blog, even modest clothes, not tzniut in and of it self?

      According to some, even blogging isn’t tzanuah. So there you go.

      What I am aiming to do with these modest dressing columns is to show women out there that dressing as a frum woman doesn’t mean dressing frumpy. That you can be stylish and funky and show your own personal look – without contravening any of the laws of modesty.

    Oh, I didn’t realize you do this as a service to frum women. I guess i was thrown off when I saw you specifically ask for free clothes from stores.. All the power 2 ya!

    You look so good! I love the matching tichel and the necklace is great. I love that you look put together even when you are dressed casually.

    the thing that amuses me the very most about this post is that your dress down look is my dress up look! lol I don’t generally wear make up and necklaces and sparkly boots to the grocery or to do my laundry. but hey, to each their own I guess! :)
