What is a trend that you wish would stop?
“Polo boots. I’m over it. And it’s the summertime, people still shouldn’t be wearing Polo boots.”
Is there a trend you’ve started to notice, that you think is going to get popular?
“Um… Denim jackets is a big thing now, you know. And that wasn’t — they went out for a while, but now they’re back. I’m noticing that. I like that, a little bit.”
How would you describe the way you dress?
“I like to be comfortable, and I like to add a little bit of sex appeal with modesty. I know that’s a contradiction. But I still like to be modest.”
“Yeah, charm. Modest, with a little bit of charm. And comfortable. That’s my number one thing.”
Do you have a current obsession?
“Well I’m a little obsessed with red lipstick. I took a break today cause I had a job interview, and I didn’t want anyone to think I was crazy. But yeah, I love my red lipstick.”
Is there a favorite thing you’re wearing right now?
“My flip-flops. Just cause I throw ‘em on and go. Nice and simple.”
Do you have any comments, questions, shout-outs?
“Mm, no, not particularly. Not now. Shout out to myself.”

First, a quick look at the weekend weather forecast for Ocean City, NJ.
So maybe you won’t be tanning and playing beach volleyball this weekend. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prepare for the summer by purchasing a flattering swimsuit.
A few weeks ago Emily G asserted that most women under the age of 35 look better naked than clothed and suggested some two-piece bathing suits. But perhaps you don’t agree. Perhaps you’ve always thought that modern swimsuits are just a little too revealing. A self-effacing gal like you certainly doesn’t want a bikini or even a skirted one-piece. Fear not, Modest Mary. We’ve found the perfect swimsuits for you, too!
To quote their website (emphasis mine),”WholesomeWear is a modest line of clothing for ‘wherever.’ Our WaterWear is the first to be introduced because the need for modesty in swimwear is greatest and the supply is almost non-existent. Swimwear that ‘highlights the face rather than the body‘ includes an undergarment with bright colors at the neck and shoulders to draw the eyes to the face.”
Here’s an example of their Extended Slimming Swimwear, which, as you can see below, covers both your elbows and your knees for ultimate coverage. This fine piece of presumably Amish craftsmanship will run you almost a hundred bucks, but that is a small price to pay for modesty.
