Easter Sunday Best!

I picked up this dress for this year's Easter Mass.  As I always have since I was a little girl, I always get excited about buying an Easter Dress.  This dress definitely has vintage feel, I even took it one step further and "hot rolled" my hair...LOL.  Also, Mass was beautiful, the choir literally sounded like the angels themselves came down to bless us with a song.  It was enough to get me misty eyed.  Bravo St. Aquineas choir!

I bought this dress from Ruche.  I think it is a beautiful dress, but there were some bumps in the road with how it was made.  First, the  zipper was horrible.  It was very gritty and not smooth.  Brian had a time getting it up. I'm actually afraid to take it off for fear I wont get the rotten zipper back up in time to go watch Mad Men.  Ahh...the dilemmas of a stylish girl...LOL.   I have a right mind to replace it.  Second, I bought the dress in a 3X, but the dress fits like a 14 or 16 straight size.  It was listed in the straight size section of Ruche, but the waist is 38 inches on this thing, which left me one inch to try and configure myself into.  Ugh!  But other than that, the fabric & length is fabulous.  A beautiful dress indeed.

I also may need to officially dub Sundays as Mad Men Sundays since I plan on watching the entire season at Angelika Theater.  The awesome thing about this dress is that it does double duty with the Lord and with Mad Men Sundays.  If you have been watching Mad Men, Betty arguably the most stylish girl, has gained a bit of weight.  With this weight, the Mad Men stylist have started to dress her in the "I hate myself" clothes.  There are a few brands (that I will not name, but you know who they are) that associate with the "I hate myself" look, so I  generally wont buy their clothes just on that principle.  The thing is Betty is still probably half my size, but they cloak her in horrid outfits.  Betty could wear the dress I'm wearing with no problem and be fabulous.  Mad Men script writers & stylists I am going to need yall to do better!  Betty doesn't have to dress like she hates herself.  She can wear the same things she was wearing, just in a bigger size.
