Modest, yet not frumpy, affordable clothing...

re: Modest, yet not frumpy, affordable clothing...

JC Penney's in-house brand, St. John's Bay, usually has 3/4 sleeve tops. I have a couple and I've found that brand to be very durable over the years (my dh has a couple of their dress shirts that are over 6 years old and still going). Check Kohl's, too, especially their clearance racks.

www.hannahlise.com has nice long skirts in a lot of colors.

I was going to suggest Kohl's myself. There is quite a variety of clothing at Kohl's. I usually find my best pieces there, the ones that everyone says, "Beautiful dress - where'd you get it?"

If you have a Ross, Marshalls, or TJMaxx near you, go there! I always have good luck there with skirts and dresses for my daughter and myself. The long, conservative skirts are not popular to wear in my area, so our stores are filled with all of these cast-offs that no one wants. I wear mine with long sleeve (or short sleeve) Tshirt type shirts, longer length. A few of my Tshirt type shirts are from Target. All of my other clothes are from Ross.

I understand completely. I seek modest clothing for myself and my two girls. I go here:

http://www.modestclothes.com/simple/christian-girls-modest-clothing-stores.html

There are multiple online stores that are ran by women that make clothes from their home. You get to choose the colors,patterns,etc. You can choose which site. I prefer the Daddys Little Princess Store for my girls. There dresses are beautiful and modest,but modern.

I also order for myself from http://www.jumpinbloomers.com

They sell skirts,aprons and alot more. I must say that you do pay the price for being modest though, as those dresses typically cost $30 or $40 just for one. HTH

Id say try ebay! I have bought a lot for my daughter and myself. We only wear dresses, skirt, culottes~no pants/shorts, etc. We believe we are called to be modest and not to be "sexy" to attract someones attention!!!

CJ Banks is also awesome!!! They have a LOT of skirts and shirts that are modest.

I have found MOST of our things at 2nd hand stores! They are there, u just gotta take the time and look.

I don't sew~so I'm stuck having to buy already made. I have boughten sooooo many dresses and skirts off ebay and have pretty much always been happy!!! I got a long, denim, old fashioned dress last week, for $11 (that includs shipping). My hubby loves me in it (well,,,,he loves me in anything~LOL~smiling) and it was a perfect fit!

Good luck mama!

re: Modest, yet not frumpy, affordable clothing...

I love this thread! We also have struggled to find modest clothing for our daughter and me. We also buy my skirts from newcreationapparel.com, and I usually get my shirts from Target (love those ultimate t-shirts!). We've recently found a new site for our daughter. Gracefulthreads.com. It's a little pricey, but well made.
