Clothes that Bespeak Femininity

Keri Russell in The Magic of Ordinary Days.

I love the clothes that Keri Russell wears in the Hallmark movie, The Magic of Ordinary Days. Russell wears cotton blouses that are, in fact, exquisitely cut to fit, with fine flowery prints and beautifully cut dresses also with flower prints.


A lively print shirt dress with accompanying sweater.

The dresses all fit to a T, so that although Keri Russell is alluring, she is always dressed modestly. Of course, few of us are as beautiful as Russell, but I think most women would look better in clothes like these than in many of the outfits I see on the street or the grocery store, which often are either sexy but not necessarily feminine, or are unfeminine by virtue of being sex-less.


A superbly cut red skirt with a red and green flower print blouse that reminds me of Liberty of London prints available at Purl Soho.

Those are lovely! I've never seen the film, but I might have to put it in my netflix cue just for the fashion. Thanks for sharing!

I loved that movie.

Have you ever seen the movie Pinky? I thought you might like to watch it.

I do Love the way she's dressed in this movie! It's so classic, so feminine and flattering. Thanks for sharing : )

I wish the Hallmark shows were on dvd and available from Netflix. :<(
Another movie which features modest clothes, probably only because the character had an operation scar!, is Return to Me. Minnie Driver wears Oilily clothes that are just beautiful, and striking because there is no cleavage. :<)

I am excited to have stumbled upon this blog in my research and journey to modest yet beautiful attire.

Does anyone know who makes or where to buy the beautiful clothes? Esp.the white dress with purple flowers?

I, unfortunately, have no idea where to get these clothes. Her skirts and blouses remind me of the "Villager" clothes we high school girls wore in the 1960s, but I cannot find Villager today. If you find out where to find these clothes, let us know! Thanks.
