Modest Garden Party Dress

by Yonit Willis, modest fashion blogger at Miss Mellalina 

If you enjoyed learning all about Esther, a member of the Mode-sty community, then you're going to want to read the interview we had with this lovely lady. 

Meet Sara, a Virginia-based lawyer who has spent 10 years working as an advocate for the rights of refugees and immigrants. Recently, she started a lifestyle blog about wholehearted healthy living called Everyday Beautiful. Check out her picture where she's wearing our Garden Party Dress and then take a look at the questions we asked.

1. What does modesty mean to you?

Modesty is not only how you dress, but your actions and how you carry yourself. I am so thankful for modest fashion companies like Mode-sty, Haute Hijab, Simply Zeena, Yaz and bloggers like With Love Leena, Hassanah PFH, and Simply Jaserah who provide modest style inspiration.

2. Where did you grow up/what was your upbringing like?  I am very thankful to my parents who raised my brother and I with a loving childhood in Long Island, NY. I am so thankful for this blessing. We had a supportive family and community who instilled living the values of our faith while embracing American civic engagement.

3. What's something you're passionate about? Helping others and making people smile. I hope that my service contributes to children having peaceful childhoods.

4. The media focuses on calamity and strife all over the world, what gives you hope about the future? My family and friends inspire me daily. I also love nature. The beauty of flowers are a gift from God that always amazes me.
