Darling, You've Got Style: Swimsuit Edition

The high-waisted, retro swimwear of the 1950's is back in full swing this summer. And we love it! Over the past few years, Meg and I have been transformed. By the grace of God, through His infinite mercy and love, we each individually embarked on a journey of restoration - restoration of beauty, dignity, and femininity. And we met somewhere along the way. One of Darling's core values is to empower women through fashion, to restore true beauty - something we believe in because we personally have experienced this beautiful restoration.

We love women like Jessica Rey, who saw something in the fashion industry discordant with her faith and created an alternative. Her talk "The Evolution of the Swimsuit" created quite a buzz about modesty in fashion, when Rey asked "Who says it has to be itsy bitsy?" Rey passionately promotes swimwear via her line Rey Swimwear that embraces modesty in an oh-so-adorable and ethically produced way.

Within the construct of modesty, there is a freedom—that modesty isn't about covering up what's bad, but about revealing dignity.

Meg and I have been sporting high-waisted two pieces and one pieces for the past few summers, and it's never been about covering up or trying to hide our femininity. We choose to embrace modesty to encounter freedom. And to be freaking adorable in a retro style swimsuit. That vintage glamour, ya'll. #beachfabulous
