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: The Silver Hanger for Modest Formal Wear!

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).

Well, this is our final week of the modest formal wear series.  I hope that we've given you an idea of just how many options you have available in the way of modest gowns for your upcoming formal occasion. 

We're ending the series with a company that is actually in the Southeast Texas region, so if you're in the area, you might be able to visit the store!

I'm talking about The Silver Hanger.  Located in Katy, TX which is north of Houston, they offer modest wedding and formal dresses for every occasion.  Owned and operated by Deborah Thompson, The Silver Hanger is a unique shop that specializes in dresses which are often hard to find, such as dresses with sleeves, plus size dresses, white formal dresses, Mother/Grandmother of the bride, and consignment dresses.

While they do not sell online, due to manufacturer agreements, they post pictures online to allow you to pre-shop.  They sell "off the rack," but given enough time, they can place orders for your perfect dress.  

So, without further ado, let's look at what's available!  Here are a few of my favorites, click on the link above each picture for more info:

I find this dress really eye-catching I can't tell you much about fabrics, but it is obviously floor-length, with wide straps at the top.  I love the details around the skirt of the dress and over the shoulder.  It is pictured here in Aqua, and available in the store in a size 6, however other colors and sizes may be available to order.

This beautiful dress is also floor-length, with cap sleeves and beautiful detailing under the bust.  You need to check this one out on her website because the material is wrapped beautifully around the bodice.  This fresh, youthful dress is in stock in the colors shown and in sizes 0, 16, and 18 in Navy and 2 in the red. 

Landa M733
I think this dress combines traditional elegance with a little modern flair.  The floor-length skirt has a few interesting tucks and folds, the waist is set off with a bow, and the bodice is a simple, but flattering silhouette, with slightly off the shoulder "sleeves."  It is in stock in the color Barberry, size 10.  Other colors and styles may be available for order.

This elegant dress has a floor-length skirt, cap sleeves, rouching around the bodice, and details along the neckline and at the waist.  It is in stock in Emerald, and in size 14.  It's a lovely, classic formal gown.

I really love the silhouette of this dress!  It has nice, wide straps with detailing on the shoulder, a wrapped bodice with delicate details there as well, and an elegantly layered, floor length skirt.  In stock it is available in Coral, size 10.  Check with Deborah for other colors and sizes.

And, for those of you who want a shorter prom dress, here are a few of your options:

This is just one example of many cute, shorter dresses that can be made more modest with a short jacket.  They have a wide array of jackets available at The Silver Hanger.  This particular dress is available in Turquoise/Black with a black waistband, offset with a rose.  For the many other options available, check out the website.

This particular dress had no link available, I found it on their Facebook page.  It is a tea-length dress, shown in Black/Gray/White, and in varying shades of pink.  The empire waist is off-set with a thin bow.  It has cap sleeves, and is just a pretty, modest dress

Cute!  And unique!  I found this dress on their facebook page, also.  It has a tea-length bubble skirt.  The bodice is overlaid with lace.  It has a curving empire waist with delicate detailing at the bust, a v-neck, and cap sleeves.  I think it looks even cuter with the hairstyles the models are sporting!

Here's another cute, short dress that becomes party-appropriate when you add the jacket.  It's got a super cute pattern on the overlaying material, and I always like hot pink and black.  Once again, there are many other styles that you can pair with a jacket for a stylish and modest option, so check them out!

In addition to the variety of dresses, they have a wide range of jackets as well.

So, check out The Silver Hanger!  They have all sorts of accessories available.  While you're looking around, check out their facebook page and blog.  For more information, feel free to call the store at:  (281)-392-9990 or email them at:

If you're planning a trip, here's a map of their location.  The address is:
5423 E. 5th Street
Katy, TX 77493

Well, ladies, that's it!  I hope you've enjoyed this series as much as me.  If you make the trip to Katy, tell us how it went!  Good luck with your dress shopping, and may your formal occasions be blessed, safe, and God honoring.

Thanks for the great blog feature on The Silver Hanger!
I just wanted to clarify on a few points.
1. All of our dresses are new and we do not accept consignments.
2. Katy is actually located directly West of Houston on I-10
3. The dress images pulled from our Facebook history may no longer be available or might be on the sale rack...Yes! I said "SALE RACK" ...we have a huge rack of dresses for $39.95. They arent necessarily Prom dresses but would certainly be great party dresses!

Thanks again & hope to see you all soon!

I realize that this post is from 2012, but I am going to all google search links and making corrections in information. The store in Katy is closed. Some inventory from the store is at my house, near Bandera, Texas. Purchases can be made from the website-
Also you will find other information there, on the website.
