A Walk Down the Street: Then and Now

In the 1940's, women would get presentable to go shopping or take a walk or window-shop.
They had higher standards for how they dressed in public.

Sadly, now girls will wear whatever to go out and about.

The basic outfit is a low-cut immodest shirt and a pair of short-shorts.


I'm apolled that girls wear such things. In the Bible it says that showing thighs is just a being naked. Girls everywhere show their thighs- all their friends do it, why won't they? Also, there's the "jeggings" and "skinny jeans" and...the dreaded diaper shorts.
Diaper Shorts (noun): Meaning: A pair of very short shorts that rides up on the sides, forming a diaper like contraption that looks unfashionable and ridiculous- in my opinion.


I would LOVE to wear this outfit on a stroll on the town:


AHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That skirt is A-MAZING!!!! And the shirt. I love babydoll tops and 3/4 sleeves.

All of these opinions are my own- I don't want to offend anyone, but I want to share my standards with people. From a Biblical standpoint, I want to give my opinions and I hope that you think about them.
Thanks for reading!

Ugh! This topic drives me crazy! Thanks for posting this. I even see people going around in pajama pants. I like to look nice when I go out. How can people feel good about themselves when they let the public see them in their pajamas!

I strongly dislike short shorts. I wear bermudas and I know a lot of people don't like them, but I don't want everyone to see my entire legs.

How do people feel comfortable in short skirts and low tops? I would feel SO uncomfortable!

Sorry about the long comment...

Lol- I actually really enjoyed your comment!
My family and I wear skirts, but I'm fine with bermudas and modest jeans. It's the tight things that drive me crazy, especially tight jeans. Why wear anything if you're still showing everything?
Hey, maybe I should do a post on types of skirts.. that would be fun. Definitely on my list of things to post on! (what list? I actually don't have a list... hehe.)

You should do a post on different types of skirts! I have an idea...we should do a blog post series or photography contest or something about modesty together. That would be fun! E-mail me if you think that would be a good idea!
