Here Comes the {Modest} Bride…

by Jen on November 24, 2014

modest bridesmaid dresses

If you've got a heartbeat and a smartphone, you've probably heard that Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald, of TLC's 19 Kids & Counting, tied the knot on November 1st! Jessa made headlines with some of her unique choices for the wedding, including an ice cream sundae bar instead of the traditional cake, and her own stunning-yet-modest wedding gown. We were particularly thrilled with her choice of modest bridesmaid dresses…the Ellie dress in Coral from our very own JenClothing

Jessa's eleven bridesmaids ALL looked stunning in this simple, darling dress. The coral color is bright and cheery, and the super-soft jersey knit fabric is oh-so-comfortable! Jessa's sister Jill even rocked the Ellie with her baby bump!

We love this new trend of choosing simple dresses with fun, flirty details for your bridesmaids to wear for the wedding! Then instead of being banished to the back of a closet with a host of other puffy, over-the-top gowns, your girlfriends get to wear their bridesmaid dress from YOUR big day over & over again. These kinds of dresses work great for a day of shopping, attending church or even a night out on the town! Check out the great selection of modest bridesmaid dresses available now at JenClothing.com.

We want to wish Jessa and Ben the very best as they embark on the adventure known as married life. And we applaud Jessa for her strong faith and her commitment to modesty not only for herself, but her entire bridal party! She is proof that modest IS fashionable and beautiful, and can even be done on a budget.

Falling All Over the New Fall Colors

by Jen on September 26, 2014

By Heather Merrill

Fall is officially here.

And yet for many of us—the outside thermometer still shows an abundance of red. We're wearing Bermuda shorts one day and an oversized sweater the next. We're craving pumpkin everything—but a Slurpee can still hit the spot.

But there's something about this time of year that makes me ogle new color combinations. I'm driving distracted as the mountains blaze with reds and yellows. Bedtime isn't even an consideration until I see the sunset shimmer with deep pinks and blues. And I'm not gonna lie—I want to spend hours on Pinterest looking for colors that are new and interesting.

That's when I remember to go check out the Pantone website and look at the Pantone® Fashion Color Report Fall 2014.

Here's the deal: Designers used a plethora of these colors during New York Fashion Week (February 6-13, 2014.) And these are the colors—my friends—that we'll see more of this fall. Here are the colors combinations I'm falling in love with:

I love the idea of combining neutrals Aluminum and Cognac with a pop of color, like Bright Cobalt.mauveorchidcypress

 

 

 

 

Or wouldn't it be just lovely to have a monochromatic Mauve Mist and Radiant Orchid—with a flash of Cypress-colored jewelry?

 

 

And let's not forget to give ample props to the 2014 Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid. This lovely flower of a color becomes like a neutral when paired with colors like Sangria, Royal Blue, or Misted Yellow.

You can download your own handy-dandy copy of the colors. Use the chart to create stellar outfit combinations, find fabrics for throw pillows, or even to color-coordinate your next birthday party! You will WOW your friends—and you might even get them to scare up some new adorable outfits and start falling over fall (or at least the new fall colors.)

Please Share: Do you like these colors? What must-have color combinations did I miss?

Don’t Be Limited by What You Wear

Thumbnail image for Don’t Be Limited by What You Wear

By Emmaleigh Burtoft There are plenty of past fashion trends we may scratch our heads at. Shoulder pads, for example. An oversized T-shirt "casually" gathered together with a bright scrunchie (guilty). Personally, I think platforms and harem pants will be the next decade's Halloween costumes. Ridiculous trends make us laugh, shake our heads, and ask, […]

I love cropped cap sleeve tops and I recently got some from Halftee. They are so versatile! These tops are made to wear under your shirts to add sleeves and coverage to your outfit when you don't want the bulk of a full long-fitting shirt underneath. The shirt stops right under your bust. I love […]
