I never was the kind of thoughtful blogger that this medium really deserves.  These days, other media seem more suited to my mercurial (or is that slapdash?) nature.   Sooooo … find updates on the Timbrel and Dance Facebook page.   See my Polyvore sets as they post automatically to my kirsijóna blog.  Then, of course , I have the Offbeat Modest Dress page on Facebook.  And an Apron Wearers International Facebook page.  Sometimes I’m in the mood for Twitter.  But the MOST fun of all is had on Pinterest, which is blessedly all-visual, all the time.  Godspeed!

Check out the Offbeat Modest Dress group on Flickr;  it’s a kind of tribute to the my old (now-deleted) wordpress blog, ‘Offbeat Modest Dress’.

Consider joining the yahoo email discusion list:  Offbeat Modest Dress.  We’ve been rather inactive, but there’s nothing to stop us revving up again and discussing wardrobe tips and sources:  Offbeat Modest Dress on Yahoogroups.

The helpful woman from Clothes and Stuff.com has a great video on creating the two-headscarf style y’all like so much.

Happy Heads

November 7, 2009

  Two designs.  Reversible.  Many color combinations.  Happy Heads.

Bayley at Plain-n-Simple Headcoverings sells a great little ironing board that’s perfect for ironing cap or snood-style headcoverings.

Sheena Matheiken has come up with a great way to raise money for Akansha while demonstrating the brilliance and sustainability of dressing in a uniformThe Uniform Project.  Fantastic. 

I am sorely tempted to imitate this project.  My tentative ‘uniform’ … wearing this Wavy Chinese vest/top in Indian cotton from annyschoo with various combinations of skirts/shirts … I wonder if I could do this???

UPDATE***  I AM doing it.  I bought a couple of them and have been wearing this vest for a couple of weeks.  Love it:  fewer choices makes for fewer headaches and more room in the closet!




I was surprised to hear this weekend that my priest is against tattoos.  Here’s a bit more on this subject, from Father Gregory Naumenko of St. George the Great Martyr Serbian Orthodox Church (Hermitage, Pennsylvania).

Yes, I know I just mentioned Shukr.  But their new Eid collection is in!  You have to check it out!



Ponder the truth of Christian marriage: man and wife are one flesh! Does it not follow that they must share all their possessions? And yet you two haggle over this property! And why? Because of words! St. Macarius of Optina (+1860)  — click the text for more quotations from Orthodox Christian authors and the Holy Fathers …
