Hi makers, I'm Bailey the face behind Hooked on Tilly Crochet! A few words that I love to live by come from 1 Timothy 2:9: "Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control...". As a mother and wife I don’t have much time to invest in my appearance. From this experience I’ve found that exceptional beauty comes from the inside, reflecting modesty. I love dressing simple and comfortable! When I get ready for the day comfort is my priority.
Simple yet beautiful
Whenever I look for inspiration, I think about what I want to wear. As someone who doesn't have much time or abundant energy to put into my style, I will look for those pieces that truly say 'simple, yet beautiful', a piece that looks like I tried hard but has only taken me a quick second to put on.
The Isabel Beanie
My handmade Isabel Beanie is one of my favorite go-to statement winter pieces! The gorgeous texture of this hat makes for a fresh and stylish look. I love the The Isabel Beanie as it truly allows you to wear the hat anyway, which I really think defines the best of a modest look, fitting any fashion sense, personality, or lifestyle. Plus, I love pairing this beanie with a cozy sweater and comfy leggings!
Modest + Modern + the Melody Scarf
My handmade Melody Scarf gives a girly splash to any occastion. With a gorgeous patterned texture and fringe accent, you can pretty much wear this scarf year-round! I love pairing the Melody with a basic tee and jeans, as it also says simple yet totally beautiful - definitely how I love to wear it!
We absolutely love Bailey's maker style of simple beauty and modern modesty! If you're looking for a fresh 2017 statement piece, support Bailey's maker life via her Etsy shop Hooked on Tilly.
