Modest Dressing – 5

Soft Look for Shabbat

Today I am modeling my look for a casual Shabbat outfit. Sometimes I do get dressed up to the nines to go to shul, but sometimes I opt for a softer look. This look that I am demonstrating here can also work well if I have a speaking engagement. After all, I am wearing my signature colour.

Cardigan Detailing

As you all know I love pink. Especially baby pink, and this sweater / cardigan just oozes pinkness. It’s so feminine and classy, flirty without being over the top. The flowers just add softness. The sleeves are an interesting length, but they do cover the elbows which I am very happy about. I am wear a pale pink shell underneath for warmth, and for modesty – to make sure I am covered if there are gaps between the cardigan buttons. I got mine through MavenMall.com – more on them down below. It was under thirty dollars, which in my opinion is an excellent price!! I know I would not feel out of place wearing this to shul on Shabbat.

I have several black skirts in various different lengths – this one is a particular favourite of mine. I bought it a few years ago at Old Navy when I was heavier, and I liked it so much I have had it altered twice after losing weight. It’s not shown here, but it has a cummerbund-like waist – so if I tuck a shirt in, it looks very elegant.

Here I am wearing thick black tights, but this could look dressier with sheer hose. In the winter my legs get cold and I wear the thick tights.

Shoes

My shoes – I got these on sale in Montreal at Winners and they were not expensive. I don’t remember exactly how much, but I know I won’t have paid over $50 for them. They are Marc Fisher and give me a four inch boost whenever I wear them.

Necklace

My necklace is from the Phillipines – I have no clue if it’s a cheap or expensive piece, but I love its classic elegance.

Wednesday’s Wacky Signs

American English?

I was brought up to say “there is a big bee behind you”. Apparently here in North America people don’t talk that way. For years I have been telling the kids – don’t say “in back of you” say “behind you”. It really bothers me. How hard is it to say the word behind? “In back of” just sounds so…… wrong!

But then again we see nothing wrong with saying “open” or “close” the light – must be because it translates well from French.

Language is a many splendoured thing!
