Today at church, seeing all the children in their Easter clothes reminded me of when I was a young girl. There were 5 (!) of us sisters and my mom would make us all dresses, often matching. Since we couldn't afford the real thing, she made us Gunne Sax knock-offs (ones that I now see for high dollar all over Brooklyn in hipster vintage shops. Yes, even the ones covered in gobs of lace with huge sleeves.)
Today I wore what I call my "Easter skirt" by Harvey Faircloth (reminds me of pretty colored Easter eggs!); my taupe shoes from Target that I actually got on sale for $7!; and yes, my white (brite!) shirt from Uniqlo (you'll see a lot of these shirts on this blog. I'm telling you, my dear husband can't get enough of them. :). And maybe for old times' sake I'll get my hands on some vintage Gunne Sax like these (to wear with oxfords, of course :)... 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5.
And someday, I'd love to make dresses like these for some little girls. My dear friend (of Katiedid) made these and I don't think there could be two cuter Easter dresses.
Is it just me or do you still like to wear Easter clothes, even as an adult? Do your children seem to like dressing up for Easter? I'm such a sucker.
