Creative & Curvy

This post is for all of the ladies who think being a certain size affects your ability to dress fashionably. I'm here to tell you, no matter what your body shape or size is, you can dress CUTE! I have a beautiful friend, Amanda, who is the PERFECT example of this! Amanda found Modern Modesty a while back and messaged me many times thanking me for all of the ideas she was getting from the group/blog. I have had many people complain that Modern Modesty isn't geared towards plus sized women, but Amanda is going to prove you all wrong today! :) I'm going to show you that any one, no matter what size can get outfit ideas from Modern Modesty.

This is one of my favorite outfits! I love cobalt, black, and white! As you can see Amanda (on the right) is clearly ROCKING the identical outfit as I wore. She took the idea, and made it her own! People ask Amanda where she gets her clothes, and I've seen her answer Lane Bryant a lot, so if you are plus sized, I'd be checking out Lane Bryant to get these fabulous pieces!

I love how Amanda creates her own outfits from the inspiration of colors and patterns she sees on Modern Modesty. Melissa, is one of my favorite contributors! She posts on a daily basis, and ALWAYS has FABULOUS outfits! I'm so glad Amanda chooses to use what already has in her closet and make great outfits instead of saying "I can't look as good as the skinny girls.." (Which I've heard SOOOOOO many times from curvy ladies) Dress for the body you have, not the body you want! Amanda ALWAYS dresses amazing for the body God gave her! Don't use your plus size as an excuse to not look and try your best! You just have to be more creative!

I'm just going to show you some of my favorite outfits Amanda has posted. She is such an inspiration, and I hope she helps some of you ladies you need a little boost of confidence to dress fabulously!

  7. Thanks for this, Lauren! Can you please post the links to Amanda and Melissa's blogs?

  8. Lauren, I'd like to find out the name of Amanda's blog as well. Love your blog, btw.

  9. Amanda and Melissa don't have blogs, they post in my Facebook group, Modern Modesty.

  10. Loved this! You go Amanda! Also would like blog links if available!

  11. LOVE the outfits! I've always struggled with dressing modestly as a bigger girl because I find clothes cost way more! But it is possible! Amanda is beautiful! =)

  12. I love this!! Style and grace does not have a size on it! I have an online boutique that focuses on being stylish and modest! Check it out for GREAT prices and beautiful pieces: www.ShopCrownWear.com

  13. Hi! I am definitely one of those people who look at pictures of others and say "I'm way too curvy to pull that off" But after seeing these pictures I am very happy to be proven wrong! :)
    I would like to join your Facebook group but I do not know someone who is already a member. God has just recently led me to make a commitment to dress modestly and no one else in my circle of family and friends feels the same way. Would you consider making an exception and allowing me to join? I would be so grateful! Making the switch to long skirts after being a primarily pants wearing girl is proving difficult for this fashion novice and I would love to see outfit combinations others have come up with. Thank you!

  14. Beth, just shoot me an email letting me know your name and request to join the group and I'll add you! :)


I love to read your comments! Thank you so much for taking time to look at my blog! XOXO
