Check This Out:

I was featured as modest fashion inspiration here! I had never heard of this site, but am definitely a follower of it now. I always strive to be very modest in the way I dress, so I am extremely honored to be used as inspiration for how to dress modestly. I am a huge advocate for this issue for many reasons. The main reason for it is my faith, but there are other reasons as well, like the fact that dressing immodestly is easy. I could just throw on a scuzzy tank top and shorts and be on my way out the door. Dressing modestly presents a challenge, especially in the summertime, so you have to use a little bit of the style side of your brain to figure out how to cover up creatively. Another reason for modesty is the fact that about 99% of the human population doesn't like to see you showing a ton of skin. In fact it kind of makes others want to lose their lunch a little bit. Even guys don't like girls who show a ton of skin because there's no mystery there anymore.
Here are a few verses to sum it up:

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

1 Timothy 2:9-10
Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.

Proverbs 31:30
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

1 Peter 3:3-4
Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.

Have you ever heard of Rachel Lee Carter? I just discovered her and the book she wrote recently about modesty and such. Her book is called "Fashioned by Faith" -

I haven't read it but it looks really interesting. :)
