So, let's all examine our own consciences and motives before we set about to assail others. If we're honest with ourselves, we're likely to find that the fault lies within us rather than with women who are graced with true physical beauty.

I think your initiative is daring and very much so on point. Today, image is everything. Let me explain: like Stacy and Clinton on "What not to wear" say all the time you need to dress the way you want to be treated, to represent who you are and where you want to go with your life. As Catholics, this advice is much needed. Here are a few questions on the matter to think about. On a personal level: "What impression do I want to make? What reactions do I want to have towards me? What is it I want?" On a faith level: "What does the Church teaches us about modesty? What does the Church want for our well being on the concerns of modesty? Why adhere to modesty?"
Personally, I adhere to modesty. However, in today's world, it is challenging. All the time I must discern what I am wearing is godly and respectful to men. It is an everyday conversion.
I love the idea of taking pictures of the newest fall trends to put in practice modesty. Great idea! I've done the same thing when giving a workshop on modesty to teenage girls this summer.
