I will not fade into nothingness!!

Thanks to Jenna of Seven Style Notes for interviewing me for her blog.
It is kinda sad how quickly the trees have become bare around here. Most of the leaves have all fallen now here in New Jersey. The scent of “death” (dead leaves) is all around. I am starting to enjoy the colder seasons lately. It is going to be really “fun” to do outdoor sets this winter, but I’m going to do them!
This cameo brooch was probably my Great-Grandmother’s, definitely was my Grandmother’s
There is still some green around here!
Brooch: family heirloom
Shoes: c/o Ively’s Closet
Please rate this highly so it can be featured on “Peter Pan Syndrome” for Hypeed!!!

  1. I voted for you on Hypeed's Peter pan collar feature! I honestly don't even own a peter pan collared shirt 😦 I like the way this outfit looks on you. It looks so sweet! Those brogue pumps have exactly the same color combination as my brogue oxfords!! I'm going to read your interview next. 🙂 Oh yeah… winter. :-/

  2. Remember these shoes? http://alamodest.com/?p=2251They have exactly the same colors! We have twin shirts and twin shoes now. That's so neat that she gave you these shoes!I just left a really long comment on the interview. You are so inspiring! I think that because you are outspoken on other things besides modesty, I'm learning to be in touch with those other things more and more too. I've only been married for this short amount of time (almost 2 years), and it really helps to hear from someone married longer than I have who is also so against sexual impurity, materialism, and other things, you know? A lot of Christian married women care little about those issues.

  3. That would be so neat to live closer together!I can't give that shirt away because it was my mother's, and I actually am still building a wardrobe of modest shirts (still have a lot of low-cut shirts and shirts with holes on purpose from before). I find it easier to find modest dresses which styles I like instead of modest shirts which have styles I like. I find that a little weird, so I usually look so formal with dresses on for regular days. That's exactly what I thought, too when you mentioned Jesus being intense! The Bible tells us not to be lukewarm, and the Christian progressive culture has been incredibly lazy with that. That's interesting that we're talking about this because I started to draft a post about lukewarm Christians a few days ago. I've never been so bothered about this until recently. Even the whole attitude around God's grace and mercy has been abused and used as an excuse to do whatever they want and still be okay with God. This thing with my brother-in-law was one of the reasons why I felt so sensitive to this lately. Why are Christians so lazy and comfortable with their faith? God is loving, merciful, and gracious, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't work. I think more Christians should be more like you and to the highest measure, to be like Jesus. I need to honestly work on that too because I know that there is a reason why people like us are so affected by these things. It's like that story I read from a Christian article where somebody walked up to their pastor complaining why people didn't do something about a certain issue after the sermon, and the pastor responds with, "If you feel so strongly about this, then it must be you who needs do something about it." It's hard when people perceive us to be pushy and judgmental. I've lost popularity around some friends (just distant mutual friends) because they felt I was "too much" as well and even felt attacked by me about being lazy and two-faced even when I never said anything to them about this issue. They just read my blog. I feel like I should be speaking more about this outside my blog even if that means losing friends. I'm glad though that blogs exist for the purpose of explaining things further that I probably can't do as well in front of people. People just jump into conclusions too quickly without letting you explain; although telling people up front what you think is right also is more personal and gives them a chance to ask more about it. I'm still struggling with the whole thing. I need to be more outspoken offline. My husband is very outspoken about it with his friends and family though. A lot of people get uncomfortable with him, but that's what I first noticed about him. He isn't afraid to speak out the truth even if it makes him unpopular to both Christians and non-Christians.

  4. the more and more I read your blog, Victoria, the more I like it. And I know you've said that the pirate tattoo was from back in your rebellious days away from Christ but… I kind of like that as well. I am not a huge fan of tattoos (I believe if you are going to put something that permanent on your body-a temple of the holy spirit- you better have a gooooood reason) I like the whole pirate thing. There is nothing Christian about pirates but I still have a thing for them.

  5. Hello Victoria!Nice to meet you! Thanks so much for your love in Hypeed, all my love back for you! you are very sweet, in fact you look like a beautiful doll….I am in love for your style!All kisses and hugs,Kira

  6. I love those shoes! And I think it's pretty fantastic that you can be outdoors in a t-shirt in New Jersey, even if the leaves are all yellow and it's late November! Such big difference to poor Finland 🙂

  7. Just lovely 🙂 Your cameo is beautiful and even more special for knowing it has been in your family for generations. Love the colour of your skirt, soft blue is just the best 🙂 and your shoes are most excellent!Have a great weekend!

  8. The skirt and top are a perfect match-even down to the cool socks. I like how simple yet fresh it looks. If I owned that outfit, I would probably live in it, Victoria!Bea from A plus B

  9. Hey Victoria,Thanks for being honest with me! I really appreciate that. I do agree with you. I got a little uncomfortable posting those photos after I was done editing them. I don't think I would ever disagree with anyone who points out that something I wear is immodest or sexy. I was always stubborn with my clothes, and I know to stop being like that now once the feeling rises up in me. Just last night at the theater, I was wearing these really neat-looking tights with a "sound wave" pattern. My dress was a good length touching my knees, but I noticed that a lot of guys couldn't stop looking at my legs. I should keep in mind that some things are just sexy even when they cover up parts of the body. I immediately understood what you meant when you wrote that comment, and I cannot agree with you more. I've never worn that corset outside the house, though! It was more of like part of a lolita costume I made up just for that post.

  10. Oh how cool! Thank you! I just added Ruby-Eyed Okapi's button on my sidebar. I know I've been meaning to do that once I got my sidebar fixed neatly, but I thought I might never come around to doing that (at least soon), so I added it as soon as I could. I also posted REO on my Facebook fans page. 🙂 I hope you get more readers! I think REO rocks!

  11. That is the sweetest little cameo brooch. I think it's even more special being handed down in the family.Those shoes are great too! I've been searching for something similar to add to my collection.Hope you get featured! I voted.♥ Rebecca JeanMidnight Maniac
