Your physical appearance is most times, an expression of your mind. What you wear, and how you wear it, represents your inside. For out of the abundance of the heart…
Dressing modestly involves being decent and appropriate and should be done by both the man and the woman.
Today, Oluwaseunbabara Oluwadare a fashion entrepreneur, specialized in women’s clothing talks to us about modest dressing for the woman.
Welcome to Dupe’s blog ma’am
Thanks a lot. It’s a privilege
Tell us about you.
I’m Seunbabara Oluwadare; a bundle of light and joy to many generations; living for an audience of One.
What do you do?
Hahaha.. This will be a long list;
I’m a fashion entrepreneur. I run the label “O’BABARA” which specializes on bridesmaids dress and wedding gown.
With a sister brand called JUST SKIRTS NG that specializes only on Skirts
I’m also the Ministry Director at The Wholesome Girl Network; a network for teenage girls to be thoroughly equipped within and without.
I’m a graduate of Project management from the Federal university of technology Akure.
What do love most about being a black girl?
The power of resilience in the black girl that she’s able to thrive even in the midst of difficult situations and circumstances.
What, in your opinion, is modest dressing?
Well; Firstly I will like to address dressing as a way of showcasing who you are on the inside.
So, who you are on the inside will be visible in your appearance. Its about being modest on the inside then it shows in your dressing and vice versa. So I will say modest dressing is exemplifying our true nature as believers which is Christ.
What are the disadvantages of immodest dressing?
To analyse immodest dressing; it means dressing inappropriately or “exposive” dressing.
To think of it, dressing immodestly is not about any other person first but about the wearer.
So it’s actually about yourself.
Immodest dressing will ALWAYS ATTRACT immodest people to you. It’s important that we are cleared on the type of people we want around our lives. Because really the type of people around our lives determines how far we will go.
Why do you think ladies no longer want to wear “modest” clothes or see them as “boring”? And what can be done about it?
The world is actually pushing nudity as the norm but the world should not be our standard neither should trends dictate our dress sense.
And modest dresses doesn’t mean boring dressing. One can dress modestly and still be classy.
People want to trend and be the happening babe. But modest dressing comes from a place of understanding who you are and whose you are. This will definitely give a change of perspective; Identity is one area the enemy tries to mar and because people don’t know who and whose they are, they opt for just anything.
I’ll quickly do a reminder for the Ladies: You are the King’s Daughter; An eternal excellency; You are the joy of many generations; this means that you bring joy to many generations beyond your generation.
So it’s important we don’t give in to the dictates of the world trends because trends will certainly come and go.
As someone into women clothing, do you think it’s possible for women of different body types to dress modestly all the time and still look good?
Its absolutely possible and one doesn’t even need to look too far to see that there are people that dress modestly and still look good.
Can you give few fashion tips or examples of modest clothing for ladies?
Embrace your shape(embrace who you are and how you were made. Avoid comparison)
Always check out the rear view (this is super important because those behind you, look behind you so ensure the panty lines are invisible)
Avoid exposive dresses.
Thank you so much for your time ma. We hope to have you here again.
Thank you. It will be my pleasure
