From The Catholic Young Woman. I’d say the words that come to mind are “charming, gracious, elegant, kind, and dignified.” Ever wonder what words come to people’s mind when they see how you dress and how you act? Reminds me of an episode of “What Not to Wear”!
I’ve always loved to dress beautifully, and I love it when other girls dress beautifully. I remember that every time I would visit my older brother at his college I would sit out on the dorm balcony for a few minutes every day and watch the girls flutter by in their skirts. … Read the rest...read more

Fashion and Style vs. Modesty
To be fashionable, does one have to be immodest? Does being attractive mean that a woman should arouse the prurient attention of man? Do fathers and mothers want their daughters to be objects of lust? Their sons to be salivating brutes?

Since I viewed the first trailer, I’ve been saying that the Twilight series was another step in the de-Christianization of our culture…but I had no idea how bad really it was! I’m with this reviewer….I WAS TOO KIND BEFORE!
Tremendous review of the Twilight series by Jasmine Baucham.
Several people that I respected –and some that I don’t hold in especially high regard –had loved the books, and told me to take another look, and to keep going: I wasn’t being fair. Now, I had read Twilight and New Moon and viewed both of the films before I spoke … Read the rest...read more
