    My dad shops with me. This is a good and bad thing. For example of bad: I have to have low rise, flare leg, short lenght. Do you know how hard it is to find the "right" pair of jeans?? Any way he gets tired and wants me to just buy the first ones I try on. So we usually end up in a small agrument. However, on the flip he holds me back for buying the low cut shirts or the skirt that is a little short.( every girl knows she she sees it she wants it and your parents drag you back.)
    As far as how a girl should dress. I disagree in your chest hanging out or drawing attention to certian areas. I see nothing wrong with girl wearing something form fitting. Every girl wants to look her best. I believe that I do a pretty good job of dressing modestly and stylish.

    Not too low cut and not too tight on the shirts. As for pants, not too tight and they keep the underwear in. Well, that last one goes for guys too! LOL

    I also go shopping with my dad and I hate it because he thinks everything I like is ugly. I like to wear bright colors and he hates them and he tries to rush us. I feel that I know what I should wear and not wear.

    My dad hates that I spend forever finding the perfect clothes, then I try them on and put 1/2 back. Then I have to shop some more. He doesn't understand that shopping is a process! ;)

    I know right he just does not get it. It is really hard to be a girl. I get up at 5 every morning to get dressed for school and my parents pick on me.

    How many girls here feel that they can dress modest and still stylish?? I think a lot of times we try to say I have to wear long pants/skirts or turtle necks to be dressed modestly.

    I dont wear pants at all. All I wear are skirts no shorter than about 3 inches past the knee. I wear culottes while playing sports and things. I can still usually find stylish tops that are modest..sometimes I have a hard time with skirts. I look different with what I wear.. but I still think I look stylish.

    OH YEA!!!!

    Mosdesty and style go hand in hand if you ask me... let me be honest with you being a guy I catch myself sometimes distracted with those who arent modest but when I actually notice a girl (who is modest) i remember her.

    Just remember that dressing modest doesnt mean you have to look like you came out of a "Little House on the Prarie" book. I think
    true style=modesty

    I have a younger brother and I know how hard it is for him not to look at all the little girls who are walking threw the mall half dressed. I try to make sure that my shirts are not to low cut and that my jeans are not too tight. I love to buy clothes but it is hard to find just the right thing.

    If you have ever been to a Barlow girl concert you know that they really believe in modesty. They also try to teach girls it does not matter what society thinks you define your self by Gods standards and no one else’s. I think to many times we girls try to fit into societies little idea of what’s hot. Not every girl can be a size 2. But you are beautiful the way you are because God made you that way and that is who you are. I also believe that girls do not love themselves because if they really loved them selves we would not have all the problems we have to day. One day your prince will come and he will care about modesty. I say leave something to the imagination.

    I love this song

    Barlow Girl - Clothes Lyrics


    Clothes aren't what they used to be
    They don't seem to fit you and me, anymore
    Modesty is out the door
    Flaunting what we've got and more is in
    Yeah, it's in

    They're sayin'
    "Don't ask why, just wear what we say
    You'll look like a model if you'll only obey
    To get the attention, just do what we say"

    Pay so much for clothes so small
    Was this shirt made for me or my doll?
    Is this all I get?
    I looked so hot but caught a cold
    I was doing just what I was told
    To fit in

    Chorus

    We're sayin'
    "Let's ask why, don't wear what they say
    Don't want to be a model; they can't eat anyway
    That kind of attention will fade with the day
    So, I'll stand up and say. . .

    Clothes that fit are fine
    Won't show what's mine
    Don't change my mind
    I'll be fine

    People attract the kind of person they are.

    I will not agree with that. I dress modestly but yet I still attract the type of guys I would never date.
