Summer is just around the corner and we all know the struggle of dressing modestly and cute in the high temperatures, plus finding appropriate modest clothing. I mean unless you have a magic wand and can turn that ‘itzy biny tiny yellow polka dot tiny’ into something HOLY then were on the same page. I get constant emails, messages from women around the world lost, what do we do!? Especially due to the fact that it’s wedding season as well… What do you wear, when the rest of the world is half naked. How can I feel beautiful next to her?
First thing is first. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. ( repeat that 5 times! ) Yes it’s much easier to show some skin and feel sexier, I mean living in a world filled with so much media, that’s all we see. But take a step further, get to know yourself. We have this never ending idea that in order to be considered beautiful, we as women need to show skin, this is not true. Modesty is beautiful.
Today I wanted to share with you my favorite stores in LA to help you hunt down modest clothing and some online shops. You guys always ask, where do I shop!? Here it is! My secret is all out ….
For shopping online for modest pieces narrow your search down. You’ll be flooded with so many dresses and it’ll just get overwhelming. Head to the search bar and type in what your looking for…. “long sleeves black dress” , “summery dress”, this will help narrow down your results. Trust me it helps! I use this tool when I shop at ASOS.
Jcrew. If your looking for something preppy and chic, Jcrew is your store. They always have the best pencil skirts and they even have a petite section which I love. Plus, sign up for their emails, they always have some sort of sale!
Shein. I know the pricess are too good to be true but you can find some amazing pieces here.
Mango. I don’t know why we don’t have a Mango store. But you can always find some cute modest pieces online! Also, price wise and style are similar to Zara.
H&M. If you haven’t checked out their TREND section, they always have the neatest and most unique modest pieces. Trendy but yet affordable.
Target. A store I have no idea what we did with out. It really is a one stop shop! I always love a #TargetRun and always happen to find the cutest modest pieces for such great prices!
Uniqlo. We recently just got this store in LA. Such great place to find basic essentials, like long sleeve shirts and easy dresses for everyday for such amazing deals. Like the striped dress I’m wearing in the video for under $6!!!
Zara. What would we do without you? No, but really… They are constanyly updating their website with the latest trends and styles. Ps. Their summer sale starts June 23 or 27…get your wallets ready!
eBay. Love love. They have such funky vintage pieces. Search ” Vintage Beaded Dresses” …. you’ll find gold.
Aritzia. Holy mother lord did you see their new shop at Century City mall!? Love their pieces and they have so many pleated skirts!
Department Stores. I have love and hate relationship. I just can’t deal.
Vintage Shopping. is my ultimate love. If I have a wedding or special occasion. I usually head over to my vintage stores first. Living in LA we’re blessed with such amazing boutiques, check out my faves Recess LA, Wastedland and Crossroads.
Sample Sales. My loves did you know the last Friday of every month there are phenomenal samples sales located in downtown LA. at the California, New Mart and Cooper Building. Yes, mark your calendars!!
Abbot Kinney. Wow, why is it that I just discovered this hidden gem in LA. Not the best place to find modest attire, since it’s right by the beach but, a great place for some inspiration and for the cutest coffee shops!
Local LA Designer. Don’t forget about my designers gals LINEAR COLLECTION, SOLIKA and WUKO GALS based in Los Angeles. Make sure to check them out! Sending some sunshine to my East Coast girls THE FROCK NEW YORK and MIMU MAXI.
