Modest attire a la Christiana

All this week my mother and I attended the High School Festival at Bob Jones University as I was competing in piano, but due to the fact that they do not allow photography during the programs I was not able to take any pictures. However on the last day we ran into a good friend of ours, Christiana. We spent a delightful afternoon talking and then went and had dinner together.
While we were walking I noticed that Christiana had on a beautiful, long, flowing, swishy skirt along with a very pretty dark jean jacket. Now if I had seen that skirt hanging on the rack at a store I most likely would have past it by without another thought but seeing it on her and the way it flowed, my mother and I fell in love with it. Mother asked her where she got it and she told us that 2 weeks before, her mother had told her that she had seen a long modest skirt at T. J. Maxx on clearance. Christiana went to see it but thought it was very ugly, however she tried it on and seeing how flowing and long it was, she bought it. Well, anyway, to make a long story short, yesterday morning my dear daddy took us all to T.J.Maxx, and as Caleb works there and we could get 20% off the items we were purchasing, we went straight to the clearance aisle. My mother picked 3 skirts and I got 4 along with a sweater for mom and a dark jean jacket for me, because it's not everyday, as I told my "getting increasingly alarmed" father, that you find long, modest skirts at such a good price.

~Modest attire a la Christiana~
The store only had women's sizes so we bought a size medium for Haviland and I cut off the top 2 and 1/2 ruffles and made Victoria a little skirt out of it and then ran elastic through the bottom ruffles to make a skirt for Havi.

Thank you soooooo much Christiana for the wonderful afternoon we spent together and for sharing with us where you bought your skirt. Mother and I really enjoyed it.

Strength and dignity are her clothing,~

Dear Christiana,
If Prentiss gets one well we can all dress the same, wouldn't that be fun?
