A Modest Fashionista

PhotoGrid_1486607164325In our fast paced world, you can obtain just about anything with the click of a button. This includes, fast food, fast shipping, and even fast fashion.  However, there is often a trade off for this speed.  Fast food is known for having poor nutritional value. Fast shipping is often expensive. Fast fashion is often poorly made and sometimes immodest. Time and time again, I have fallen in love with a dress only to realize it’s too short, too tight, or has holes in all the wrong places. Has this happened to you? It’s a big let down. The last two dress that I fell in love with had to be worn as tunics because they were too short. It just seems that the two words, modest and fashionable,  just don’t seem to go together in this day and age.

However, at RnD Finds, modest and fashionable go hand in hand. Daisy and Rebeca, a mother and daughter team, sell new handmade custom clothing as well as and pre-loved items. Their shop carries the motto:” You can be a fashionista in a modest way.”

“You can be a fashionista in a modest way.” RnD Finds

This beautiful blue peplum dress from RnD Finds speaks for itself. The vibrant color really stand outs.  The material is soft, not see through, and most certainly easy to clean. However, the custom fit of this RnD Finds dress is everything!  I measured it so that it would cover my knees even with I’m sitting.  The notch neckline adds style without being too low cut. The zippered back makes the dress easy put on and take.  The cap sleeves were perfect for our transitional Spring temperatures. Best of all, the peplum waist line is great for concealing a not so flat tummy. Understandably, I’m in love with this dress.  Best of all, the process was so easy.

  1. I selected the style of dress I wanted from RnD Finds Instagram page.
  2. The lovely ladies at RnD sent me photos of the material they had available.
  3. I was emailed a form to fill for the measurements of my dress.  They also included a detailed YouTube Video to help me correctly measurement for my dress. If uncomfortable measuring, you can visit see your local dry cleaners or fabric store to help you take the measurement for your dress.  I strongly recommend that you do this!  A 2nd opinion, from a professional, is always best.
  4. I submitted my measurements along with my payment to RnD Finds.
  5. Wait
  6. Enjoy my new dress!
