Decent Exposure

While browsing Modestia today, I saw Rebecca's post on Decent Exposure. For those of you interested in modesty, and the fight that awesome and Godly women everywhere are waging against our culture's current standards of dress, I think this will be of interest.

What is Decent Exposure?
Decent Exposure is a ministry for teen girls that was founded last year by Catholic actress, designer, and speaker Jessica Rey. Jes asked me as well as some other modest-minded friends of hers to help her get this ministry off the ground last fall. We had our first program in the summer of 2009 that consisted of 4 weeks of classes about womanhood, modesty, chastity, etc. To surmise all the girls had learned, we topped the program off with an amazing fashion show hosted by actor Skylar Testa with a bonus performance from Caitlin Crosby. (Whom we love here at Modestia!) The program was more amazing than I could have ever imagined and I am so excited for this year. (From Modestia. Here is the post in full. It has some awesome information about their ministry!)
