Fashion on Friday – Easter Edition

Leave a comment

We got to spend the Easter holiday with my sister and her family in Tacoma, Washington. We used the Spring Break time to go to the Pacific Science Center in Seattle – riding public transportation which is one of the boys favorite things. Colin took them to the Tacoma Children’s Museum one day while my sister and I had a day out shopping – he’s a great husband and Daddy!

My sister’s church had services on Saturday and Sunday. We attended as a family on Saturday evening so that my Mom and I could work on the Easter Feast on Sunday morning while my sister and her husband could do the singing and sound engineering thing at church. This meant that I got to wear two Easter outfits! Ain’t nothin’ wrong with that. Both of my Easter outfits were brought to you this year by eShakti. I love this place/online store. I could just sing their praises. They have super cute clothes in so many sizes and they have the option to completely customize to your own measurements. I bought two dresses and because of a promotion they were having and an additional promo code I got from blogger Pieces of My Earth – I got both dresses with customization for less than the price of one dress originally. I will say to drop at least one inch on your measurements as they do tend to run a bit big.

On to the looks.

This dress is so comfortable and has a retro vibe. Very easy to wear and did I mention comfortable? Oh, and it was a gorgeous, Spring day.

I jazzed it up with some coral tights and for both my Saturday and Sunday outfits I wanted bows in my hair. I looked around in stores and couldn’t find what I was looking for so I raided my sister’s ribbon stash, found an easy tutorial online and whipped myself up a couple of bows.

My ring is a cheap plastic thing, but I love it. Colin got creative taking pictures.

This dress! There’s not just a retro vibe with this dress – it’s full on retro. The pattern is amazing. This dress is also very comfortable – I suppose that comes from having a dress made to measure.

There are so many reasons I love Easter – the first and foremost being Jesus – thank You! Other reasons include Spring, Easter egg hunts, Cadbury Mini Eggs, family, and Easter outfits!
