"Let women themselves, instead of struggling to meet the demands of fashion, have the courage to dress healthfully and simply. Instead of sinking into a mere household drudge, let the wife and mother take time to read, to keep herself well informed, to be a companion to her husband, and to keep in touch with the developing minds of her children." - Ellen White
Dressing in a modest way does not and should not be complicated. The quote above states that women should be brave to dress simply. In a world where the pride of life is rampant it is so refreshing to see women take pride in a more simplistic way of dressing.
A lot of us are afraid or loath the idea of being labelled as a 'plain Jane'. Such phrase suggests being boring but what is the issue with having a plainer dress sense? Many in the world are obsessed with being seen but what is the benefit of that? A few more compliments? Your ego is stroked a little. What is benefit of dressing extravagantly?
I am in no way saying we are not to dress nicely neither am I implying extravagance is synonymous with looking good. You can still look good without having to break the bank, simple ensembles saves money.
Recently, I watched a video about some of the practises of those who are wealthy. It was noted many of the worlds rich wore the same style of clothes daily. In doing so they saved money and freed up time to focus on other things.
" let the wife and mother take time to read, to keep herself well informed, to be a companion to her husband, and to keep in touch with the developing minds of her children."
Choosing to dress simpler allows more time to be spent on those things which are of greater importance.
