God is able to take the mess of our past and turn it into a message. He takes the trials and turns them into a testimony.

Downtown Demure in Chefchaoen, Morocco

A Lil' About dD

Downtown Demure started in 2012 as a modest fashion blog written from the perspective of a party-girl-turned-devout-Christian out to prove that women can dress modestly and stylishly. 

Then in 2018, a Russian hacker hijacked my blog (true story!) and wiped out my Instagram, my most popular platform. Overnight I lost hundreds of posts and a community of over 25K like-minded women. I also lost my will to continue blogging. 

So I took an unplanned hiatus and reverted to the alcohol-induced spiritual wilderness I dwelled in before I got baptized in 2011.  

Thankfully, God and my loved ones did not give up on me. Now that I am joyfully sober, God has called me to return to this space with new content pillars: 

  • Intentional Living
  • Conscious Travel
  • Relaxed, Colorful Style

I can’t wait for you to join me in exploring this exciting new chapter of my little space!

With love and grace,

The (new) mission for downtown demure

Just as my life and faith have evolved over the past few years, so must my blog. Rather than focus on modest fashion, the new Downtown Demure will focus on the following:

  • Intentional Living: Learning how to live a value-aligned life that is purposeful and not reactive or on auto-pilot.  I’ll share the practices, frameworks and guides that help me feel more centered and at peace every day.
    • I am SO passionate about this topic I even created a line of candles designed to encourage more intentional moments in your daily life. You can explore those beautiful creations here
  • Conscious Travel: Experiencing the diverse beauty of the world through travel brought me out of the dark place I was in during my addiction. Now I’m on a mission to become a more conscious traveler, exploring with intention and practicing compassion for the people and lands I visit. I’ll share everything I learn along the way in this space.
  • Colorful, Relaxed Style: Learning how to dress colorfully and authentically yet demurely. Though the focus on fashion will be secondary, I will still provide tips on how to dress stylishly and comfortably, especially while traveling. 

My goal–through radically candid shares and colorful visual storytelling–is to illustrate how intentional living and conscious travel can lead to fulfilling adventures that spark genuine joy and deepen connections with ourselves, Our Creator and His beautiful creations.

let’s adventure together…

Fun Facts About Me

1. I am joyfully sober and celebrating a whole year free from alcohol in 2023!

2. I had a delightfully strange pandemic wedding in 2020. Only 6 immediate family members could attend IRL. Everyone else watched via livestream.

3. I now live with my hubby and our FOUR animals (two cats and two dogs) in a humble condo in Los Angeles.

    My name is Kinya. I am also a blogger. I plan to launch my webiste on Sept. 2nd, 2015. I will be writing about simular topics based upon faith and beauty. I know this may seem like an odd question, but if you dont mind me asking, what is your denomination?

      Hi Kinya! That isn’t an odd question at all. I don’t believe in denominations, so I simply call myself a Christian who was baptized into the body of Christ. That said, I typically attend Churches of Christ because of their adherence to biblical teaching. Your website sounds like it will be very exciting and a welcome resource for Christian women. I hope God blesses your endeavors and they are glorifying unto Him. Please share your site when it launches!

    Hi my name is Jeamela and I’m a rising junior in college. I’m a Seventh-Day Adventist Christian meaning that I observe the Sabbath, but I started following your page to learn how to have fun with clothes while representing Christ!

    Hi! My friend Nicati recommended your blog! I adore everything I have seen so far! I am black also, and I worship with at a church of Christ, and I love clothes (bargain hunting and thrift stores are my favorite!). I feel a connection to you sister! Thanks for striving to clothe yourself in a God glorifing way that is so encouraging to me! Perhaps we can encourage on another!

    I am absolutely heartbroken with this site. It’s just what I’ve been looking for, but everything I click on says “page not found”!
