Easter Sunday

Easter was a busy day, we had breakfast with Sams family, lunch with my family, and dinner with friends. I must say I can't imagine how those socialites in days past handled so many social calls in one day all the time. No wonder they had fainting chairs!
This is what I wore to lunch at my Aunts house. I've had these wax orange blossoms from the 1920s packed away for years, and thought it was high time they saw the light of day. It's too bad they're so delicate, they would be pretty to wear all the time :)

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

Love the floral print of your dress Solanah, and your hair piece is so pretty. My Mom has my grandma's wax flower headpiece that she wore when she got married, but sadly they are totally mangled. The wax flowers are so delicate, you are lucky to have some in such good condition. : D

xox,

Ooohh the print on this dress is so pretty. The wax blossoms are also absolutely gorgeous. Im starting to wear a few more flowers and ribbons in my hair, I've got really short hair and always thought I couldn't really wear things like that in my hair, but I discovered I can =] I've also discovered the beauty of hats.
Wonderful as always Solanah...

Cute dress! You look like you stepped right out of the 1920's.

Orange blossoms were popular at 1920s weddings so that may be where yours are from, VV. You could add netting in the future for a night time look. In any event, a great find.

Oh my, the print and colors of that dress are so lovely! And I love the feminine detailing of the ruffles and the wax flowers! Not a bad outfit to be caught running around to social calls all day in!

The colors of the print are so soft and lovely - perfect for spring. I love those flowers too. My mom had the same kind on her wedding veil, but too bad they're totally destroyed now!
