My first date ever was my Homecoming dance, Junior year, just a week after I turned 16. I wore a pale yellow dress that I borrowed from a friend, and felt as beautiful as Cinderella! My date was so charming and at the end of the date, he thanked me for wearing a modest dress. So neat, huh? Ladies, I know many of use choose to dress modestly for ourselves, and to be a good example to our daughters, but it is also important to think about how our clothes affect the thoughts of the men in our lives. I think few will argue that it is hard for a young man to think wholesome uplifting thoughts when his date is wearing something that leaves too little to the imagination.
One of the times in my life when I was particularly cautious about the clothes I was wearing and the impression I wanted to leave on those I encountered was on my LDS mission. I wanted clothing that was long enough on bottom, high enough in front, and something I wouldn’t have to fudge with to keep myself covered. Oh how I would have loved this Botanical dress from Sorella Bella! The print is so romantic! I love the large, abstract watercolor-look. The cut is flattering and an invisible zipper closes it up nicely. The hem is clean and the removable sash makes it just as comfortable and still fitting as ever. For years, I have fought against florals, and steered clear of anything that looked ‘old lady’ and dated, so I took a risk with this, but after all the positive comments I got when I wore this last week, I’m so glad I did!
Sorella Bella (also known as Sister Missionary Clothes) is a shop of lovely tops, skirts, accessories, and even shoes, and they carry the most beautiful dresses, all MODEST and still flattering, current with today’s fashions!
The best comments I got were from a cute friend who is about to turn in her mission papers, when she said, “Where did you get this dress?!” She’s looking to expand her missionary-attire wardrobe, and I was so proud to tell her about Sorella Bella. Here are some of my other top favorites that I would wear in a heartbeat:
