Glad you found us! This site has one objective: to help you win the spiritual battle for purity, in every sense of the word. Society encourages us to throw away our virtue; the message sent out by the media is: "everyone's doing it!" We are here to prove that statement wrong! Come in, read some encouraging testimonies, chat with others who strive to remain pure, and reaffirm your belief that purity, sexual and otherwise, is not only possible, but totally worth it!

Think on These Things: Try A Formal Choice for your Modest Gown!

Philippians 4:8     Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things (NIV).

I hope that you've enjoyed exploring the wide array of beautiful and modest gowns out there with me.  For week three, I'm thrilled to share the dresses from A Formal Choice.  They are located in Puyallup, Washington, but they'll gladly ship to your location.

Naomi, owner of A Formal Choice, started her business 10 years ago while working with the youth at her church.  She encouraged the girls to wear modest formals to their dances, and heard their complaints that modest formals were almost non-existent. She started the business to help girls out there searching for things to wear which uphold their personal standards.

Here's what one customer has to say about her purchase from A Formal Choice: 

Just a note to say 'Thank you' for your excellent service and the exceptional quality of the dress that I ordered from you a couple of months ago. The dress is beautiful, well-crafted, and elegant; your
service was prompt and very reliable. I appreciate the dresses that you make and sell that allow young ladies to have modest options when they have a dressy function to attend.  I hope to have opportunities to purchase from you in the future.
Again, thank you very much! Keep up the good work.

And now, on to the dresses!  Here are a few of my favorites:

TP22 Nina Prom  $262

This is an adorable ball gown of Aurora Taffeta with a fitted upper bodice and contrasting trim and bow.  It comes in pink/black, tiffany/black, or black/ivory.

TP52 Jennifer 2 $338

This elegant gown has a square cut neck, is made of silky taffeta, and has elegant beading around the bodice and on the gathers throughout the skirt.  The back laces up beautifully!  It is available in the following colors:  Aqua, Fuchsia, Iris, Deep Sapphire, and Emerald. 

TP 30 Tiffany Prom  $328

This slim A- Line skirt of Aurora Taffeta has beaded embroidery at the empire waist (a favorite feature of mine), petal sleeves and lace up back.  You need to check this one out on the website, because the back view is lovely!  It laces up in the back, and the material is swept elegantly to one side.  It comes in the colors brick, carrot, and turquoise. 

TP 13 Blair Prom  $372

One of their most popular prom dresses,  it is made of Aurora taffeta. It includes elegant beading & embroidery around the neckline and petal sleeves with a side sweep. There are three large beaded appliqués at the rear skirt and one at the hip front. It has an elegant, lace-up back, and is worth looking at on her website because it's just as beautiful in back as in front.  


I love this unique gown!  Although shown in pink, it's available in any Aurora taffeta color.  It has a Queen Anne collar, with a trumpet designed skirt, and a sweetheart neckline.  The rouching around the bodice makes it flattering to the figure. 

Here are some examples of her lovely short dresses:

This super fun party dress has a square neckline and a layered, bubble skirt.  It is available in any silky taffeta color, but she recommends darker colors.  From Venus Bridal.


This dress  has a knee length straight rouched skirt, finished with tulip sleeves and zipper back.  It is shown in teal, but is available in any Aurora taffeta color. 

Felini  $98

This modest party dress has a layered tulle skirt, a square neckline, and a
satin ribbon at the waist.  It is available in red, hot pink, and purple, and in
sizes 3, 5, 11, and 13.

MB5662  $74

The black chiffon overlay is a beautiful contrast to the bright satin colors in this dress.  It has a draped sleeve and a rosette under the bustline.  Besides the pink shown here it is available in teal and lilac, and in sizes 5,7,9, and 11. 

As always, there are many more to look at on her website.  She has a size chart  along with measurement information, and a color chart for fabrics.  There are several dresses currently on sale as well, if you're looking for a deal.  (She has dresses as low as $29!)  Make sure you check out her page on how to purchase one of her lovely dresses. 

If you still haven't found something you like, no worries, because her new dresses for 2012 will be arriving in mid to late February. 

I hope you enjoy!  See you next week to wrap up this series.
