I shall be gone for a few days from the computer, so I shall post tomorrows outfit on Monday. But before I leave, there is something I would like to ask your opinion on.
My mom recently posted about dressing in a feminine manner/modesty on her blog, mentioning the Week in Feminine Dress in it. After she did so, there was - is actually - a person who stepped forward with the view that this could be considered vain. I shall post the comments to avoid confusion:
Now, I believe this person is more then entitled to their opinion, and I thank them for bringing forth points that have given me things to reflect about, and to make sure that I wasn't doing this out of vanity. I may also add, that I do not think I am.
So I was wondering what the rest of you all thought. Could this be considered vanity? Is it too showy to post many photos of the details?
Now I think that if one has the wrong attitude, it could indeed be an occasion for vanity and vainglory. Here is my response (before the last anonymous comment):
Out of curiosity, why do you think that the Week in Feminine Dress is vain? I can certainly see how it could be, but may I inform you that the girls who do it are not doing so to say "Look at me! I am wearing feminine dress for a whole week! See how much better I am then you?"
Let me quote the young lady whom I first heard about this from:
[...]Four times a year - spring, summer, fall, and winter - the ladies at the Sense and Sensibility forums have what we call A Week in Feminine Dress. Those participating dress in feminine attire over the course of the week to show how skirts and femininity are both pretty and practical, and we share our day-to-day pictures with one another.[...]
I do not see this as something where we are trying to display how much better dressed we are then others, but as a way to show that dressing in a feminine matter can be both pretty and practical. I also see this as another way of encouraging others to dress similarly, that they are not alone, there are others out there who do wear the same kinds of clothing that you do and to not be afraid.
I would now like to respond to the showy part: I do not think that the photo's of the details are showy. I put them there, because I - like many girls I am sure - enjoy seeing all the little details of clothing and examining, sometimes wondering if I could recreate that. That is my opinion.
So now I would like yours.
Could this be considered vanity?
Is it showy to post so many photos, as well as photos of the details?
What do you think overall of the Week in Feminine Dress?
Please though, remember to keep all your comments charitable! I thank the anonymous person for doing so, and hope the rest of you will as well. God Bless!
TTFN - Ta ta for now!
