Happy Resurrection Sunday!

Normally I have at least one daughter with me for Easter with a big family dinner at home.  This year all of my children and their families have gone their own way, so I had dinner out with my Mom and Sister.

I just wanted to share what I decided to wear for Easter services this year ~


My Vogue 1370 dress ~ all the information about the dress' construction is here. May I also say that in the past there was some serious foundation garments worn with this dress, as well as, some serious sucking in of my stomach. Now I'm only wearing control top pantyhose under the dress and can't believe how much better it fits. 

It's starting to warm up in my neighborhood so I went with something a little different. Normally I wear something pastel for Easter, but this year I wanted something a little more dramatic.


I hope that you and your family had a wonderful Easter Sunday filled with family, love and a little bit of the God you serve.  Me, I'm making a big bowl of popcorn and heading to the family room to watch The Ten Commandments because it just ain't Easter if Moses doesn't part the Red Seas!

...as always more later!

    1. Thanks Joyce although there were quite a few Easter Bonnets Sunday morning! Somehow Easter inspires a lot of women to wear hats to church!

    1. Nancy - I saw Exodus mainly because I thought the parting of the Red Seas had to be amazing because of technology now and I was sooooo disappointed with how they did it. It was a crappy movie - *sigh* So church, a meal with family and The Ten Commandments means an amazing Easter Sunday to me!

  19. OOH! That hat! I love it!!! Great looking outfit Carolyn. As for me, we were in the middle of an almost blizzrad so I wore the same dress for Easter as I did for Christmas. Pretty sad, huh?
