Happy Easter

Norman Rockwell
Easter Morning 1959

Never mind that as a Catholic child in the 1960s I thought that The Robe was a spiritual documentary on the Resurrection; Easter was a serious fashion event. 


The Easter outfit was everything
All new; the dress, coat, matching hat, purse, white gloves and all important shoes (which ideally clicked when you walked) were as important as any Christmas present, for sure.  


I am glad that we don't worship that way anymore,
but I do miss the fashion show.
 
Happy Easter!

The pink gloves are kinda awesome! But they all look miserable!

I remember our Easter parade, as a Methodist too. I loved the little white gloves, and the big decision... white or black patent leather shoes?

As children we always got new dresses for Easter, as well as tiny little bags and shoes. Hope your Easter was wonderful!
