Jones New York Watercolor Print Silk Dress $111

Look at this watercolor print silk dress from Jones New York with empire waist and full skirt from Bloomingdale’s.

Update: after seeing New Moon, doesn’t this dress look like something that Esme Cullen would wear?

It would look great paired with a black cardigan, don’t you think?

Would you wear this dress?

Woman Banned from French Pool Over Modest Swimsuit

Modest swimsuits made headlines today as a Muslim woman was denied entry to a public pool in France because she was wearing a head-to-toe swimsuit, also referred to as a “burqini”.  The 35-year-old woman had swam previously at this pool in July wearing the same suit.

Officials say the outfit is unhygienic and potentially harmful to other swimmers.

The woman, a convert to Islam, has complained to police that the ban is discriminatory.

In 2003, the burqini was designed by Australian woman Aheda Zinetti so that Muslin women could swim and still maintain their modesty.

Is it fair that the 35-year-old woman was banned for her choice of swimsuit?

What are your thoughts?

Modest Clothes are In at In Style

I have been so impressed with In Style recently.  I picked up this month’s In Style with Michelle Pfeiffer on the cover over the weekend and was delighted to see so many modest clothes in the first few pages!  Definitely check it out — you’ll see what I mean.

Here’s a few outfits I saw just recently on InStyle.com worth mentioning.

There is a misconception in the world that modest is old, frumpy, shapeless and ugly.  Cable Car Couture’s purpose is to change this misconception, one day at a time, and prove to the world that a modest woman can be covered and still be beautiful, attractive and sexy.

Would you agree?

Shabby Apple Dresses

If you haven’t heard of Shabby Apple you are missing out!  No matter — read on and you’ll learn all about them!

Shabby Apple is a modest dress company that began when the owners Emily and CK realized there weren’t enough fabulous dresses on the market that made you feel comfortable and covered, so they took matters into their own hands.  Shabby Apple dresses are a return to the one piece outfit — no longer do you have to wear a cardigan or tank top to be fully covered and fabulous!

Cable Car Couture is a big fan of their flirty and sophisticated spring collections!  And in a moment, you will be, too…

Meet the Shabby Apple Marseilles dress:
