Welcome to the first ever edition of The Carnival of Modesty!
“A headscarf is the easiest type of hat to make. Just hem a rectangular or triangular piece of fabric and you are finished. Here are some fun ways to wear your new fashion accessory.“
Deborah asked if it was alright to submit something by someone else (which it is) saying,
“Can you submit something that belongs to someone else? I came across this collection of blog goodies last night, all having to do with modesty and new trends toward modesty.“
The collection: A Tremor of Modesty and Restraint; posted at I Speak of Dreams. Deborah also gave me a great tip, setting up a google alert for the topic of modesty; as well as her own submission: Moms for Modesty Link and Libby Lou posted at One Beggar’s Bread.
Mary at Home-Steeped Hope shares her journey to modesty–from pastor’s kid to newlywed to a mother of three daughters in The Church’s Influence on Modesty and her thought about the first woman to ever inspire her to modesty in Modesty and the Older Woman, and how it’s made her feel responsible to carry on in her tradition.
What is Modest
The next two articles are from Your Sacred Calling:
- Can Pants be Considered Modest?
- Walking Billboards (She saw a girl and her mom in the store– what does their clothing say about them?)
“Is dressing for attention modest?”
More great entries:
Two entries from the lovely Anna at Veiled Glory:
- Cosmetics- Modest or Immodest?, submitted by MIn, and
- Culture, Clothing, and Modesty, in which she tries to answer the question regarding the cultural relativity of modesty and how that applies to our Western culture.
That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of carnival of modesty:
