Hello...I came across your blog a couple days ago and have been skimming it and enjoying reading and seeing all the pictures of your family and friends. I do have a question though...where do you and your sisters find your clothes, especially your long skirts? I know from experience that it can be quite hard to find un-frumpy-looking modest clothing, but you and your sisters' clothes fit into that catergory...so any suggestions you have would be great! Thank you and have a glorious day!

hmmm...well, we actually go to a lot of places and just DIG! :D But I know of a couple of stores that have a bit more than most:
www.kohls.com
www.oldnavy.com (we find a lot of cute shirts there!)
www.dillards.com
www.foleys.com
Also, you could try a google search on "modest clothing" and I bet you could find a lot!
I know what you mean by "frumpy"! I like to find clothing that are cute and stylish, but modest as well!! :D I hope those websites help a bit. I've also found that the store itself tends to have more than their websites. So you might want to try that too. If you want any other links, you can email me at cmarie@familyreformation.org
God bless!

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! I've tried most of those stores (though I've never heard of Foleys), but they never seem to have LONG skirts...at least ones without slits up to mid-thigh...do you usually find skirts at those stores? Sorry to keep bugging you about this...it's just rather rare for me to find other girls who dress modestly-yet-unfrumpily (not a word!) so sometimes I need to pick their brains when I do find them! Thanks again for the help! Have a great day!

Jessica,
I remembered one of the number one places that we get our skirts:
www.aprilcornell.com
Some of their stuff is a bit on the exspensive side, but we find a lot of stuff in the clearance section.

Saoirse_lily said...

THANK YOU!! I'll look there...

A great place to find long skirts is chadwicks.com. Ever heard of them? I love their clothes!
