Horrifying Fashion Trends

Just for fun, I decided to look up Spring/Summer 2009 fashion trends. I have precious little money to spend on summer clothes, so if I buy something I'd like to research some of the styles this year so that I can make the most of my purchase.

So I Googled Spring/Summer 2009 fashion trends and I've decided that fashion websites confuse me. I click on a link that looks like it will be an article, and there are either no pictures in the article, or no words, or it really doesn't qualify as an article at all.

I came upon this one website and clicked on one of the articles on trends for this summer. Turns out the article was about how (supposedly) trends are leaning toward sheer fabrics this summer. If you're a modesty-conscious Christian (or any normal person, for that matter) like me you're probably thinking of some cute little ruffled top in sheer fabric with a solid tank top or some such thing under it, right?

Wrong! The article included pictures from some runway show in Paris, and the models were wearing entirely sheer dresses. And I'm not talking about sheer with strategically placed embroidery or embellishments. I'm talking sheer, as in you can see all the way to France, as in they might as well walk down the street naked rather than bother to put anything on.

I'm serious people. You could see everything. There are always those immodest dresses and clothes that tend to be the norm in those fashion circles, but I've never seen anything this blatant. I'm not going to give you the link, because it's totally inappropriate.

If I start seeing girls walking around like that this summer, my husband and I are not leaving the house, or at least not leaving our mountains - people up here at least have enough sense not to expose themselves like that. Either that or maybe if I see girls wearing that I'll just report them to the police for indecent exposure. Our husbands and someday sons should be able to be in a public place without seeing naked bodies, and it really infuriates me that the fashion industry thinks they can go that far in the name of "style".

Just more proof of how far our world has fallen. I don't know about you, but this makes me even more impatient to get out of here, however the Lord decides to take me. (Please come for us soon, Lord.)

My one consolation is that runway clothes are always strange and extreme, but when they hit the retail stores, they are much more normal (and modest).

True, I comforted myself with that thought too. It's still disgusting though, and we may not see the whole thing, but I'm sure I'll see a few more bras than I want to this summer.

Oh that is frightening! I'm going to have to keep my eyes open for girls walking around like that, it's my job to try and help my husband protect his eyes/heart!

Hahaha I love your sense of humor in the midst of you appalled-ness.

But I totally agree. It's very very wrong. The world just keeps getting worse and worse. And we keep waiting and waiting...

people see the models do it and feel they can do it too..that's the world we live in..all we have to do (as Christians) is God's will and also not conform to this world..we should live in the world and not of the world.
