a white dress for Easter Sunday
Easter is this weekend! A day to celebrate growth and new beginnings!
If your family is anything like mine, Easter is kind of big, being Catholics and everything. When Easter is around the corner, my sisters and I are trying to pick out the “perfect” Easter outfit for Sunday’s mass. When I think of Easter, I think of growth and beginnings due to religious reasons. I’m going to skip the religious thing because that’s not the point of the blog. But it’s simply SPRING time!
Ahhh, spring is the season where all the flowers are blooming and all the cute animals are coming out from winter’s hibernation. What better color to represent spring than white? White symbolizes purity and new beginnings. Plus, white looks good in any season! 🙂 As for this dress, besides it being OTS (off-the-shoulder), it has ruffles, frills, and all things girly!
I absolutely adore all the intricate details of the lace trims lining the bottom of the dress and wrapping around the bodice areas of the dress. How the dress have straps with delicate ruffles gracefully draping your shoulders! It’s a perfect dress for the spring time! A plus for me is the length of the dress, it’s not the typical spring mini dress, but it’s a midi dress, making it appropriate for a church attire. There goes the pros, and now, here comes the cons…
The pleating of the dress makes it have too much fabric around the hip area, which creates an illusion of being bigger (or at least I look like I am preggo at certain angles). I tried on a small in the store, but ended up ordering an extra small online due to this reason. Given, the extra small will be tighter around the waist and have less fabric, slimming down my silhouette. However, a BIG however, the breast area is way too tight. I mean, I fit the extra small perfectly fine but required me to give up my support for the breasts, creating only an unflattering squishy look. Eye roll.
Nonetheless, all the pros outweighed the cons in my head. Therefore, I went to the store and exchanged it for a small. Yes, I said it made me look bigger. Then again, I’m delusional at time and very critical on myself, so it might just be in my head. Who knows.
