Elegant Skirts from The Modest Mom – A Giveaway!

Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 31, 2010 @ 11:50 am In Promotions | Comments Disabled

As I mentioned earlier today, having a holiday wardrobe ready [3] a few weeks — or months — prior to all the parties, plays, concerts, and festivities, can really set one’s mind at ease. Thanks to my mother-in-law, my boys always had cute little suits to wear for Christmas during my early parenting years. Trouble was, I was the one scrambling for something to wear on the eve of the big event.

Usually, my closet and bedroom would be a wreck before we headed out for the evening. And I’m sure I tried on ten outfits if I tried one. Between baby stains and a fluctuating waistline, my “wardrobe” as it were has been all over the map.

In recent years, I’ve gone through fits and spurts trying to keep a few nice things on hand for special occasions. Remember I am not a fashionista [4]. But, over the years I’ve learned to keep lots of mix and match pieces in a few basic colors, black being one of them.

So, a nice black skirt is definitely a must. Especially near the holidays.

Recently, The Modest Mom [5] sent me one to try out. And I am so excited to add this to my wardrobe.


I chose the Long Ruffled Skirt [7] in black, thinking it would be feminine, but versatile for a number of occasions. While black is simple, I can change the look with different shoes. Right now it works for a wedding or date night paired with sandals and short sleeves. Come cooler weather, heels and a sweater will work great.


An added plus is that the fabric is not see-through, like so many other skirts I see. I consider this an added plus so that I don’t have to mess with a slip. Yeah! Love that!

[9] The Modest Mom [5] is a small business owned and operated by a mom just like you and me. Caroline and her sister create custom-made skirts, including maternity sizes, in a variety of fabrics [10]. They also sell a wide selection of gently used maternity tops for very reasonable prices [11]. So, if you’re planning on a baby after the holidays, you’ll want to check out what they’ve got available.
