I like the advice: "don't be too neurotic on modesty". from some of the things I read on these forums, you'd think Catholic women are expected to dress like Muslim or Ultra-Orthodox Jewish women. Let's keep the customs and strictures of medieval Arabia OUT of our Church and out of our consciences!

Thank you all for the hellos!!! wave hug


Clothing; particularly the way I clothe myself, has been a point of reflection the last few years. In high school and university, I was one of the frumpy girls for a variety of reasons- supposed modesty, self-image issues, etc. I have always been particularly curvy and was very embarrased about it as a "good Catholci girl." I was uncomfortable with the attention... and I thought at that point I was going to enter a convent. I've realized, within reason, I enjoy dressing to my body and can do so modestly without being a bag lady. It's ok to look like a woman. So, I always find articles like this interesting.

So much of my life I try to just wear what is expected of me. But lately if I happen to be in a store that has an outfit I really like I have updated my wardrobe. And I have received huge compliments.

I hadn't even realized I made these small changes until last night. I was havIng supper with my Mim and sister and they noticed my nail polish. I had been to get a manicure yesterday and felt spontaneous and now have blue with white tipped finger nails. And the ladies at work complimented me on the changes they are seeing in me, they tell me I seem happier and more confident lately.

Both my Mom and Sister hated my nails in fact I was told it looked like I was getting ready for halloween....when I talked with someone who likes my new look she could not believe that my family was that unsupportive of me....

It does give me Something to reflect on, how often do we judge others based upon their style choices and say things that belong in the Mean Girls club?????
