Growing up, Easter meant brand new dresses. Frilly, flowery, pink, yellow and green with matching shoes and curly hair. It’s TRADITION, as important as coloring eggs, bunny shaped chocolate with candy eyes, and jelly beans nestled in a basket of grass.
How excited I was the night before, laying out my crisp new clothes and shiny shoes. In the morning my mom would take a picture before I was scuttled off to church.
In my desire to keep up this tradition, I found this sheath, splashed with bold, bright Paas coloring dyes. What I love is all through the dress are filigree branches with berries, as if sketched in light grays to dark black.
I feel like a walking work of art.
Did you know Paas coloring dyes have been around for 130 years? It was named after passon, a Dutch word for Easter. Can you imagine how many dresses have been sashayed into churches and brunches in just those 130 years alone???
I love traditions. Especially Easter. What are traditions for if a new dress, curly hair and sparkly shoes aren’t part of the photographs.Dress: c/o Sammy Dress Necklace: Brina Box Shoes: DIY This beautiful dress is only $15.00 I got so many compliments at church and it is so flattering. I did tailor it a little to fit better on my body, an XS would have been perfect for me!I hope everyone had a beautiful Easter Sunday!
