Hey everyone! Today I have my first ever guest post, by a young lady from my church. I hope you enjoy reading!
1. What is your name and what does it mean?My name is Alexandria, the female derivative of Alexander, which means helper/defender/protector of mankind. It’s a pretty cool name to live up to!2. How would you describe your sense of fashion?I describe my clothing style as modest Bohemian. I love long, flowing layers… sometimes I end up wearing five layers on top and three layers on the bottom! Sometimes, when I enter the kitchen in the morning, my mother will laugh at how eclectic my outfit is. =)3. What is your favorite article of clothing?My favorite article of clothing is a pale grey hoodie sweatshirt, which I purchased at a garage sale. It has a two-way zipper, and it has kept me warm for over three years! =)4. Have you always dressed like you dress now?When I was thirteen years old, I attended an NCFIC conference, and the teenaged girls who wore skirts really inspired me– they looked so feminine, pretty, and modest! After that, I started wearing skirts every day, and my clothing style has evolved from that. Now, I wear jeans and leggings as well as skirts, but I wear tops that are long enough to provide coverage. One of my biggest obstacles to dressing modestly was my desire to be “cool”, but, over time, I learned that God blesses the obedience of His people, and I’d rather be approved by God than esteemed by man. (Besides, “cool” is subjective. You are cool.)5. Do you have a hard time finding modest clothing?It isn’t difficult to find modest clothing on a modest budget! You can purchase clothing from garage sales, second-hand shops, and even normal clothing outlets. Make sure that your clothes are not too tight, and if a shirt is too low, add a higher tank! If a bottom is too short, add leggings! Dressing modestly, and, more importantly, having a modest spirit, which means putting the needs of others above your own, will change the way you think and the way you interact with other people.
