April 19, 2011Easter Attire
By Sablemable aka Jan
Easter is a time for a new look. The latest in fashion is worn, but nothing compares with the Easter attire of the Mid-Century Modern women.
Pastel colors dominated and the look could be frothy and very feminine.
Or tailored. (Nice beauty mark!)
If I had been a young woman during the early Sixties, here’s my choice of an Easter outfit.
A Jackie Kennedy style of suit, tailored and in pink. Of course.
This suit dress is just what the doctor ordered!
I need shoes, stiletto heels. Oooh! I love these!
To the millinery for a hat, something that won’t crush my Easter hairdo. A punch of color on this pillbox! Perfect!
Now for a purse, gloves and a handkerchief.
Since my heels are my statement piece, I’ll go with a white leather handbag.
A pastel pink pair of leather shorties.
A lovely pink hanky.
Jewelry will be simple. A pair of pearl stud earrings.
A trip to the hairdresser is in order. A frost job, cut, style and a manicure. I prefer this hip-flip hair style.
Pale pink nail polish will complete the look. Of course, with matching lipstick.
Now I’m ready for Easter!
