Outfit of the day: Easter Sweetie

Actually this was my outfit yesterday. There used to be a time when I celebrated holidays (non-religiously). The last 10 years or so holidays come and go. Makes me sad really. I always plan on celebrating and really enjoying the holidays, but they just kinda sneak up too quickly and before I know it, they are over. It doesn't help much when my fella isn't much into holidays either.

So while I "dressed up" on Easter, it really wasn't for Easter. Actually I got pretty for my fella and to run to the grocery store. It's still a little chilly here in Kenosha for me (a PHX gal) so I am still donning my wools. This outfit is a bit out of my usual style, but I think it is still an acceptable look. I still prefer wartime and this is later, but I don't have much warm early 40's wear.

    Lindsay... Thanks Pretty Lady!

    Jaede... Thank you. Yes, sadly the owner, Heidi passed away and the store went belly up-ish... There are new owners and they renamed the store and made it their own. Antique Sugar I believe. I never went in there. Next time you are in PHX check it out... They moved to the corner of 7th Ave and Indian School.
