Ramadan – The Epitome of Modesty.

Soon, (actually by this Saturday), you might start seeing your Muslim friends at work or neighbors doing that annual ‘fasting’ thing that they do, that you’ve heard about a little over the years, but didn’t think too much of it or might have been too shy to ask, just in case you might come off as ignorant.

More and more, the media is showcasing female role models who bring modesty into their modern lifestyle, showing that ladies can be confident and look fantastic while still upholding modest values. Modesty is creeping up through the cracks... Read More

Victoria Beckham – Making it Modest

Personally, I think Victoria Beckham’s style sense is stylish, consistent and impeccably modest. She remains true to her figure, to her values and ideals as her collections have been consistent to that theme. Looking at her fashion sense through the years evokes a strong Coco Chanel presence. Classy & Modest She keeps things neat, trim, unfussy, flowing and user adaptable. Just look at the classic flow of this black and white striped long skirt. Easy to move about in, goes below the knees, and keeping it classy at the same... Read More

We as a Nation – “We Will Never be Cowed”

We as a Nation – “We Will Never be Cowed” My city was under threat. A beautiful day was marred with the Westminster Attack. This was not an attack on just one person, it’s an attack on humanity itself. It affected all of us. I was born in this city, I live in this city, I love this city. It’s mine, it’s ours. Any sort of terror and chaos can never ever be in the name of religion. Anyone claiming to do so is merely using the purity of faith... Read More

Of Poetry & Fashion

Hey there, Modestbabes! I always tell everyone, fashion and poetry are one. They can’t really be separated. They’re both are expressions of art, love, values and passion. In this month of Burns, I thought I’ll just share his poetry. I’m pretty sure he’s referring to Modesty and Love in this one: Song-yonder Pomp of Costly Fashion Told you fashion  MARK yonder pomp of costly fashion Round the wealthy, titled bride: But when compar’d with real passion, Poor is all that princely pride. Mark yonder, &c. (four lines repeated). What are... Read More
