I never imagined how much fun I would have with selfies. At first it was unimagineable to me, as I considered myself to be completely nonphotogenic. I’m usually the only one that looks bad in a group photo. And when I started taking selfies (actually for medical reasons), I was horrified by the great detail in the pictures.

First, the phone flipped the picture which automatically made me look bad. Then it captured every fine detail of my face, which, trust me, at my age is not beneficial. Finally, I had to learn not to hold the phone close to my face when shooting because I would come out cross-eyed!

But over time I discovered the world of filters. I discovered the best angles and poses and lighting. I started to pose more naturally and actually began to have fun. I might even confess to being a bit addicted.

Then I had the problem of finding a model for my store. There shouldn’t be a problem as I have two lovely models as offspring but they refuse to do me this favor. So I was left with no choice but to model myself. Yikes!

On to the closet selfie. On a bad weather day, where in my busy house can I model clothing? The closet has fantastic lighting, a white wall and is perfect! Cramped space but good pictures and the birth of a new idea!

You should try it yourself! It passes an afternoon of bad weather. It’s creative. You might even like your photos. And then-who knows? You may find yourself posting them too!

MODESTY

Here’s my personal explanation of a question I keep getting-“why modest?” Sometimes I almost feel like people are offended by the word 😆 I thought long and hard about what to call our store (which I run with my husband) and felt that I wanted to include the term “modest,” as that is what the store is about. Having finally found modest clothes that actually fit my personality, I wanted to share them with others who might also be searching. This is a really fun passion for me and it’s the only reason I do it! There is no single definition of the term “modesty.” It can apply to behavior, attitude or dress. Commonly, it is thought of as the way ultra-religious women dress, covering certain areas of the body that are considered alluring. This is why many religious women cover their hair. Modest dress usually applies to clothing that covers large parts of the body. Often it means not wearing pants, but in some religions, showing skin is unacceptable, and pants are considered more modest than skirts. Modest necklines are usually less revealing as are skirt and sleeve lengths. Modesty can also be a way of behaving in a dignified fashion, perhaps not being as loud or not needing to be the center of attention. Modesty of this sort requires the self confidence to know that you don’t have to be heard to be seen! So modesty is a thing of the senses. Women can be beautiful even if their body is not completely revealed to everyone’s eyes.. Women can be powerful and heard even if they voice their opinions in a quiet way. We don’t have to be screaming to the world with our dress and our voices “look at me!” We might be noticed and respected more if we reveal less of ourselves. Modesty is super-becoming and useful the older we get. Who needs to worry about revealing all of the body parts that are not looking as great as they once did? Clothes can amazingly hide years of change. Have you ever noticed how beautiful an older woman can look in a pretty pink suit? What do you think?
