Some Good Answers

Recently, Julian and I were blogging on issues related to maintaining innocence of our children, modesty, and make-up names. I think the basic message is that we are simply fed up with the fashion industry that uses sex to sell products and tells us that we have to be little sex kittens to get what we want.

Well, I've recently found that other women out there really are fed up to. I found a great blog on dressing modestly called Modestia. The author, Rebecca, is a film student from CA who faces many challenges as a Catholic in a very anti-Christian field. And her blog is fantastic!!! She has a TON of awesome side links for fashion sites that sell modest clothing and promote beauty without the trash.

One of my favorite finds on Rebecca's blog is this fashion magazine called ELIZA. The magazine describes itself as:
Welcome to the Eliza Magazine website! Eliza Magazine is created for women who want to be stylish, sexy, and engaged in the world while retaining high standards in dress, entertainment, and lifestyle. Eliza strives to bring you the best of fashion without any of the trash. We will not uncover the sexual secrets to make him want you, promote people who are glitz with no substance, or glorify lifestyles that we know do not bring happiness. We are dedicated to finding up-and-coming fashion lines, showcasing pieces that are worth the big price tags, and discover deals that are just as hip at your local low-end department stores−along with presenting articles on uplifting entertainment, current issues, creative ideas, and life in general.

Finally!! A fashion mag that promotes some authentic femininity!! It gives me hope that there are more of us out there. Let's reinvent the fashion industry and promote a new femininity!
