Romantic Vintage Dresses for Easter
when you were little, did you always get a new dress for easter?
addie was lucky enough (i never seem to be) to score these vintage 1960s dresses on ebay.
ebay of all places?!!
for hella cheap, i don't even want to tell you how much. i mean little. it's embarassing.
in any case i begged her to borrow them to try on and photograph.
just for the sheer fun of it.
the holiday that you're supposed to get new dresses.
i can't help but love them all the more; my heart cries out to them.
look at that amazing detail!
the 60s knew how to make a damn dress.
you simply don't see shit like that anymore: pintucks and textured fabrics with fuzzy little details and ruffles around the neck line and puffed sleeves with their own little extra ruffles and lace...
i mean please.
...these dresses were so fun to model,
(they're not for sale, addie's rules, don't even think about it, i'll be lucky if i ever get to wear one out myself!)
that it put me in mind of easter dresses, like the real kind,
the kind you used to get to wear to the egg hunts and so forth.
that i donned my own new dress to go collecting flowers.
my own version of an egg hunt.
i had to take a little reprieve in the gypsy hut out back from the rain.
i was going to sell this dress, but i fell in love.
it's a nice comfy cotton laura ashley in spring pink with violets in floral bouquets.
i plucked some gardenias, camelia, and lilacs to bring inside for easter and place them around to keep my vintage knick knacks company.
i may not celebrate traditionally, but i love everything this holiday signifies in the old world.
my spirit sings for it.
what's that you say?
you want to see the back of my cute cotton easter dress?
let me oblige.....
i'm feelin fresh.
that's what this is all about.
i bring blossoming flowers in and strew them around my kitchen, my dining room, my wine rack, my bookshelves.
Happy EASTER lovely friends.
we're thinking up grand springish activies as we speak.
