the daily garb: vintage easter.

yesterday afternoon i went around town with my mom trying to find her an easter dress, not really expecting to get one for myself because i have zillion dresses in my closet and already had 3 possible options picked out that i could wear.  well of course i started to realize...no i need an easter dress, the ones at home will not do (although of course any of them would have been just fine and dandy.) so i convinced my mom to go into a local vintage shop, dechoes with me (which i've talked about before).  i walked around gazing at all the beautiful pieces.  i tried a few on but none of them were right for this special occasion.  we were getting ready to prance out the door when my eye caught this little number on a mannequin near the front.  i looked at it for a minute and thought...that's an easter dress right there.  i looked at the tag. $10.99. yup. that's my easter dress. i took it off the mannequin right away, leaving it bare :/ (i probably wasn't supposed to do that) and tried it on.  right when i slipped it on and zipped it up i knew it was the perfect dress. and indeed i bought it and wore it today feeling rather prim and proper in my vintage beauty :) 

it's funny how we get so caught up in stuff.  i could have gone to church today in jeans and a tee (although i would never baha) and jesus would love me just the same :) that's what he's all about, taking us just as we are, he doesn't care if we are a mess, that's why he sacrificed his life on the cross for us and we are celebrating that he has risen on this wonderful and perfect day! hope you've had a bright and joyful easter!! :)
