And the winner is...

Late last week I had a minor freak out and couldn't choose and Easter dress...so I asked for your help! I got such an awesome response, thank you guys so much!

The clear winner (with 15 votes!) was #4, my vintage 1960's dress:


It was a good choice, too, because the runner up (the pink dress) was gorgeous, but I realized you could see straight down the top! Fine for a date night, but for church, not so much!

I also got the advice from several people to choose different shoes to go with this dress, which I also did. No gold shoes with this dress (apparently they made my feet look huge)! I substituted my (thrifted) black and white Kate Spade shoes for the gold ones in the original outfit.




I also wore some ombre drop earrings that I made for myself, and my black B. Makowsky bag. Pretty simple really! I wanted the dress to stand out the most, and with the giant bow on the side I didn't want to add too many accessories or it would look busy.

And if I'm going to be honest you guys, this was actually my favorite dress!


But you all were right, it wasn't very "Easter-y" and so I'm wearing it next week to church instead (real life friends, act surprised!) Thanks again for the help, everyone! I can't tell you how much fun I have asking for help from all my friends, be they real life, bloggy buddies or our lovely readers! You all have such awesome taste.

  1. You look simply stunning in those dresses! Teal is such a beautiful color, it simply glows on you & it looks tremendous paired with those shoes. I love vintage dresses and this is one of the most gorgeous dresses that I have ever laid eyes upon. I'm excited to up-cycle the dresses I got with such a great deal from Vintage Swank . Thanks for the inspiration. ;)

  2. Jessica both of those dresses are so pretty. I love the teal color, side bow and sort of retro look of the first one. You chose great earrings and shoes to style it with. The second dress is sort of bohemian and has that mirror-like effect and I like the chevron. Once again you chose a beautiful neutral belt and booties to style it with. Perfect!

    Stop by to see my latest. I was remixing my closet all month and doing a 30 for 30. I'd love for you to see it. Thanks.

    Enjoy your week, Ada. =)
