As most frum girls know, finding clothes that are tznius is not that easy. Finding clothes that are tznius and are also in my size, in the right color, in my price range is next to impossible.
Ok, im exaggerating. I obviously have a nice wardrobe, but shopping is not as pleasant as it used to be in my pre-skirt days.
Back then, almost any cute top would make it to my closet - everything looks good with a nice pair of jeans. Shopaholic was my story. (I remember reading the book, and feeling like someone out there finally gets me)
But now, it's like CAN SOMEONE PLEASE FIND ME A PERSONAL SHOPPER!
Seriously. I go into a mall, all hopeful that I'll find the perfect dress to wear to my cousin's l'chaim. And then 2 hours later, I'm begging my friend to go for pizza.
Maybe I just haven't learned how to be creatively tznius (you know, like those girls who pull off wearing t-shirts with their linda leals).
I continue to watch What Not To Wear in the hopes that one day, Stacy and Clint will give 5 Grand to a fellow frummy. Maybe there's an episode I missed?
Anyhoo - I randomly found an ad today on OnlySimchas (where else do you get dress ideas?) for Tabeez. They've got 'trend-setting modest apparel'. And it's not the kind of woman's wear you find in Boro Park. Instead, you can find clothes that have real designer labels, are pretty affordable, look gorgeous and still cover your parts. Happy Shopping!
