Concrete Catwalk // Easter

April 29, 2011
this was the outfit i wore to church on easter sunday with the fam,
and i must say that it was so comfortable, i could have stayed in it all day.
(i did change for our easter dinner, and you’ll see that look monday!)
the caftan was a spur-of-the-moment, ridiculously easy DIY
that i whipped up for myself right before i left KC,
and since i know you will ask me how i did it,
i’ll promise to do a tutorial video for you soon.
if you follow the concrete catwalk on twitter,
you might have seen me tweet about my new handbag…
it was one of my fabulous finds from while i was in scottsdale,
and my mom was kind enough to snag it for me while we were out antiquing one day.
it was only $6 and it has a detachable shoulder strap and lots of interior pockets. LOVE!
the necklace and new silver rings are all from a large collection of jewelry
that i inherited from my nana when she passed away this year.
this trip was the first time i had gotten a chance to look through it all,
so i’m sure you’ll be seeing lots and lots of new baubles and bangles in the upcoming days.
i always feel kind of weird listing where all my jewelry is from (plus, i wear a lot of it!),
so unless it’s available for purchase somewhere
you can just assume that it’s either thrifted, gifted or inherited.
and you know you can always feel free to ask if you ever have any specific questions.
sheer caftan top – homemade by me! (leftover fabric from hobby lobby)
layering cami – old navy
necklace – gift from nana (similar)
skirt – express (similar)
heels – fergie from (similar)
handbag – vintage, gift from mom

    Oooh. I have a bad habit of purchasing vintage fabric (even though I don’t sew) so I can’t wait to see the tutorial. I need to start using up some of it so my husband will quit giving me the side-eye when “Hoarders” comes on. (It’s all contained in my corner of the garage! I swear!)

    I just ADORE this easter outfit. So simple, so sheer, so perfect; and with the bright pops of color from your necklace and lipstick, it’s perfectly springy, too. :)
