Fashion Faux Pas

We all have our favourite pet peeves – socks with sandals, flip flops with a business suit, pants that are 3/4 of an inch too short / too long, a guy who wears a belt and braces (suspenders).

What are yours? What fashion don’ts drive you crazy?

Heinous or Harmless?

Do you think store owners have the right to go above and beyond the standard “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service”? Or is it totally their call – if they don’t want business from people wearing clothes that do not adhere to their own modesty standards, should that be their choice?



Swimwear for the modest woman

This week is my start to get back in shape week. Back to the gym, set up physiotherapy and start up at the pool. I joked on FB that it’s time to get out the shvimkleid. You know, those long sleeved and beskirted full cover swimsuits. I don’t own one, nor do I wish to. When I swim I will be swimming at my gym during ladies only swim times. Some women are strict even at such times, and will be covered head to toe and then some. If I am in the pool, and the lifeguard is female, and the other swimmers are female, I personally don’t feel the need to cover up. My black one piece is fine.

Will I cover my hair in the pool? If I do, it will be so that the chlorine doesn’t destroy the color.

Is there a need, in your opinion, to cover up in front of other women?

Hair Covering in the Workplace

If you cover your hair and you work in an office with a casual dress code is it ever appropriate to wear scarves or hats to work, or should one always stick with a wig / fall? I know the answer to this is different when it’s a Jewish company or organization, so for argument’s sake, let’s say it’s not a Jewish organization.
