Easter Sunday Finery
I remember a lavendar suit of hers that had a marvelously textured jacket over the slim skirt - all finished with a lavendar floral hat and purple Monet pin. As I grew, she took equal relish in helping me to learn the fine art of acccessorizing. My all time favorite Easter was the year of the white boucle coat (which I am sure was 100% plastic polyester) with yellow gloves, yellow patent leather shoes, and a yellow purse. I even can picture the yellow daisy pin on the coat collar. A little more vague in my memory is the year of the polka dots - might have been the new accessories for the white coat the following Easter! Mama taught me well.
Today my buddy Maggie and her husband are visiting. We will have an Easter dinner, and a lovely day with friends, but for fashion I asked her to do a little modeling for me. Here she is, showing off a little of my fashion and color sense that I am sure are a product of the yesteryear Easters!
New postings (this reconstructed sweater and several more) will be appearing in my Etsy shop tomorrow.
Happy Easter and Happy Spring.
