Behind “The Look”:

4 Tips on Dressing Modestly & Glamorously! Modest Prom & Formal Dress Hack!

Am I the only one who gets frustrated when I am shopping around for a formal dress and  everything in the store is either too tight, too low-cut, too short, sleeveless, or has the most obnoxious slit toward the thigh? (seriously who wants to see that?!)

Well let me tell you this girl refuses to settle for a less than spectacular formal dress! I think every girl deserves a dress that meets her modest standards while feeling absolutely confident and glamorous while wearing it! So, without further ado,

Here are my 4 Tips on Dressing Modestly and Glamorously!

4-tips-on-dressing-modestly-and-glamorously

Tip #1: Pick a Bold, Rich Color!

Rich colors such as royal blue, purple, rich red, etc. communicates elegance, wealth, sophistication, and intelligence. Even if the dress is of a simple structure, the color choice alone can make it look posh and refined without all the “bling”.

This is a great tip if “bling isn’t your thing”.

However, if you’re like me and love sparkles, glitter, and bling, a sequined or beaded top with a simpler bottom will have the sparkle we desire without being too overbearing!

img_9759img_9757img_9755img_9754

Tip #2: Life is Easier with Sleeves

Come on, admit it if at some point in your life you have purchased a dress with a “modesty issue” thinking you would fix it and then totally giving up on it! (Don’t worry I’ve totally been there too!)

Here’s a tip, just buy the dress that has sleeves, or is longer, or isn’t as tight.

Avoid the woe and the worry to try and find a jacket that will cover up and match the dress. Most of the time finding a bolero jacket that will match the style of dress is very difficult to find and we all know that wearing a matching colored t-shirt underneath is a no-go either!

So save yourself some heartbreak and buy the dress with sleeves!

Tip #3: Own your Outfit with Accessories

As Michael Kors said,

I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit.

The right accessories can make a dress off the catalog look unique and one in a million!

The accessories I chose today was a classic understated yet elegant Classic Black Sheffield 35mm Rose Gold Daniel Wellington watch and rose gold cuff! 

img_9833

This watch is the epitome of sheer elegance! I love that it can look good with a casual outfit as well as a glamorous one! Every girl needs a classic watch for her wardrobe!

Daniel Wellington is offering you ladies 15% OFF this watch by using the code “MODESTLYHOT” at checkout!  Let me know what watch is on your wishlist from their collection!

I also chose a classic fur shawl to give this looks a vintage Hollywood vibe.

Tip #4: RDD

Rent a Designer Dress

Here’s a little hack for all you girls that have a prom, banquet or sweethearts dance coming up….

PSSSSTT… Rent a Dress!

and better yet rent a designer dress! Why Designer?

Here’s the thing, designer dresses are more expensive.

“No duh we knew that!” is probably what you’re thinking.

But hear me out, most designer dresses are more expensive because they have more quality fabric, more fabric equals more coverage.

This Sherri Hill dress has more coverage than your average formal dress, which features cap sleeves, more layers to the bottom chiffon skirt, and even a covering slip underneath!

Originally this dress costs a whooping $400, kinda pricey especially if you are only wearing it once! Luckily for me, I found the Bling it On Dress Rentals! They have the BEST selection for your next formal event and I was shocked to find a substantial amount of modest formal gowns! Overall a great experience!

Lastly, here is a freebie tip just for you guys 😉

TIP #5: You’re never fully dressed without a SMILE!

So go ahead and use those 26 muscles to smile and feel confident in whatever you chose to wear! At the end of the day it’s just clothes and what really makes us shine and stand out is not the dress, hair style , or makeup  but the person wearing it!

Hope you enjoyed these tips and make sure to save them on your Pinterest boards!!

Until next time,

🍁🍂🍃Fall Fashion Trends! Chambray/Denim Edition!🍁🍂🍃

Happy 🍟Day Friends!!!
Well look at you making it another week!👊

I don’t know about you but I’m gearing up for some more fall fashion trends!

So for today’s featured fall trend is none other than the staple every girl should have in their closet…

CHAMBRAY/DENIM!!

Oh yes the trend that keeps coming back with full force season after season!

IMG_4405

I honestly don’t like to call Chambray a trend anymore its definitely here to stay!

I love my chambray tops and I adore it even more when they make an entire dress out of it and with polka dots!!IMG_4400

Fall is all about the rich tones and textures, and cognac + chambray is my favorite fall way to dress up this shabby chic dress!

IMG_4402

IMG_4409

You guys aren’t going to believe this but my entire outfit was all from good ol’ yard sales! LOL

I scored this adorable Polka Dot Chambray Dress from Sandy’s closet for just $5 at our Blogger Yard Sale earlier this month!

(also known as @sandyalamode on IG)

My cognac Bag was also from a yard sale a while ago and its literally one of my favs!!

I love how rustic and aged it looks and the bucket style shape is so up my alley!

IMG_4417

IMG_4414

IMG_4408

Now chambray can be paired up with literally anything and still look so chic! But since my dress had the cutest white micro polka dots I decided to wear white to make the white polka dots pop!

I added a thin white buckle belt paired up with my white 5 flower necklace from Walmart! (Haul coming soon 😉

For months now my favorite white flower necklace from Our World Boutique broke and I was left without my staple piece?:(
Until last week I was randomly roaming the aisles of Walmart and found a TON of flower statement necklaces for just $5!

SCORE!!

Annnddddd then…. they somehow all appeared in my cart at checkout…? I know, So Weird.
