Quote of the Day: "A little modesty goes a long way..."

Courtney Kampa had an interesting comment on her blog on Catholic Womanhood the other day and she referred to something she had written in column for Seventeen Magazine's Style Council. 

We each love the freedom of making our own choices, but there is one rule that we all adhere to. One detail that threads through our triple ensembles: a little modesty goes a long way. We don’t mean prudish or frumpy. Let the record stand that we in no way condone 18th century garb as a closet go-to. Modesty just means getting dressed in a way that brings attention to your eyes. Not to mention, covering up a little bit is often a vastly more flattering option to something scanty. We want to stress the importance of a dress that doesn’t tell-all. We want girls to understand the impact their eyes can make, instead of just their … assets. And to never underestimate simple beauties, like your collarbone or your neck. Instead of opting for a plunging neckline, consider something a little less revealing. Getting dressed requires an important balancing act: if you have a short hemline, try countering it by making sure you’ve got a less-open neckline. Or if your jeans are form fitting, consider wearing a blouse that doesn’t cling.

It’s these small things that will set you apart from the crowd. A little bit of modesty also attracts the right kind of boys— boys who want to respect you, protect you, and keep your best interests at heart.
