A Week in Feminine Dress: Me and the Girls!

I finally put together our edition of A Week in Feminine Dress Challenge!  It was so much harder than I expected to get pictures of Beatrice and Rebecca but I did my best and should probably just be happy they didn't all turn out like this:

And then I got distracted with this:

And this:

We don't always keep the kids in boxes by the way.

My husband was on vacation this week for the first time in a long while so it was very relaxing and fun!  This is in our front yard right now:

Anyway, here are the pictures of Rebecca:

And Beatrice (who likes to pose with her eyes closed):







(They usually live in bare feet...I put her shoes on just for the 2 seconds in the pictures where she's wearing them.)

They usually live in princess dresses too so it was difficult to get anything else.

And me:


Monday (I guess I like my black and white outfits!!)



(I'll let you in on a VERY exciting secret: this skirt will be available in my shop soon!!!!  How much would you pay for it?  I'm calculating pricing now.)

(I have no idea what's wrong with me here, worst expressions!)


THANKS FOR VISITING!!  If you would like to participate in A Week in Feminine Dress Challenge please send your pictures of a week (or day) of modest, feminine outfits to: thecatholiclady@gmail.com.  THANK YOU!

A Week in Feminine Dress

I am so excited to share these pictures from my friend in France who is a great supporter of The Catholic Lady blog!  She sent me these from her Week in Feminine Dress.  The dresses are so pretty and feminine.  I really really love dresses but don't wear them that much when I'm nursing.  So thanks so much to Marlene for the encouragement and for the beautiful photos!!

There are more photos coming later this week from my Week in Feminine Dress and my daughters.  If you are interested, please see the rules here and send your pictures to: thecatholiclady@gmail.com.  Thanks!!

June: A Week in Feminine Dress Challenge!

There's no time like Summer to flaunt promiscuity, or so secular society likes to make us think.  Help me counter this detrimental trend and elevate civilization with the grace of femininity by participating in A Week in Feminine Dress!

Are you joining me for A Week in Feminine Dress this June?

Don't forget, ladies, that June begins the "Week In Feminine Dress" challenge!  I will be posting pictures of seven days of feminine outfits at intervals throughout the month!  Please contribute with your very own "Week In Feminine Dress".  It is not at all difficult to take pictures of your outfit every day for a week!  Rules are: No shorts, pants, short skirts (cover the knees please), flip flops, sleeveless tops, tight clothing, low cut tops or anything else questionable.  Dress how you would expect a Catholic lady of principle to dress.  Send your photos to me at: thecatholiclady@gmail.com!


The Privilege of the Catholic Mother

"The most important person on earth is a mother.  She cannot claim the honor of having built Notre Dame Cathedral.  She need not.  She has built something more magnificent than any cathedral- a dwelling for an immortal soul, the tiny perfection of her baby's body.  The angels have not been blessed with such a grace.  They cannot share in God's creative miracle to bring new Saints to Heaven.  Only a human mother can.  Mothers are closer to God the Creator than any other creatures.  God joins forces with mothers in performing this act of creation.
What on God's good earth is more glorious than this; to be a mother?"


Lucifer rebelled upon hearing God's plan for the Savior to be born of a Woman.  He envied the favor God showed to Our Lady, similar to the favor God gives to every human mother.  If we could transcend into the Eternal sphere would we not realize too the incredible privilege of being a mother?


The past century of radical sexual equality has stripped woman of the highest privilege due her nature: motherhood.  Feminism pushes women to step down from the pedestal and usurp the jobs of men.  It leaves motherhood unguarded along with marriage and purity.  And these primary social values are in turn assaulted by immoral people, the homosexual and transgender agendas, and other promiscuous movements.  Childbearing no longer requires the supportive elements: God, husbands and wives.

We must honor and value the privilege of motherhood.  For this the acceptance of sacrifice is essential.  Privilege entails a great devotion to duty, suffering and self-denial.  This lesson is learned well from contemplating the sword which pierced Our Lady's Immaculate Heart.


"Catholic NFP" is another attack on the dignity of Christian motherhood.  This drastically overused method of avoiding pregnancy has infiltrated Catholic families like a plague.  NFP reduces marriage to an equal partnership of career oriented individuals and puts motherhood on the backburner along with God's plan.  This secular attitude assaults the supernatural nature of the Sacrament of Marriage, the primary purpose of which is the salvation of souls and procreation of children to populate Heaven.  Furthermore, the obsession people seem to have with planning everything from birth to death shows society leaving the Christian order in favor of a temporal-honoring society.


The Christian institution of motherhood is supported in no better way than by honoring the husband.  In the Christian order this respect is symbolic of the respect we show to God.  Children are influenced by seeing their mother's submission to a devout father and learn the subjectivity they must show to God and His laws.

Widespread divorce and immorality is a result of feminism and women lowering their standards.  Even a bad husband can often be tolerated and eventually converted as St. Monica proved.  Replacing nagging with private prayer might be the key to changing the heart of a misguided husband.  How much more happy would husbands be if they saw their wives cherishing the privilege of motherhood instead of complaining and throwing it away?
