Easter Dress During This Mess

Normally every year I get myself a new spring dress for Easter. Something springy that refreshes the wardrobe and can be used for all those spring occassions like showers, events, etc… Since this in an un-normal Easter/spring/forever I won’t be going to Easter service but I still got the dress!  Retail therapy right!?

I had this picked out way before we went into a state of shelter in place, so I figured I’d share anyways, beacuse we will emerge eventually. Wear and Share Wednesday is what I would of wore to a normal Easter service followed by brunch.  Wearing the Metalic Lace Shift Dress and Statement Stones Jewelry Collection all from Avon.

Maybe its because I’ve beeing binging season 3 of The Crown but the gray lace dress and statement jewels kinda had me feeling like high tea.  I really like how this dress is a little longer so it will work year round becuase who knows when I’ll actually be able to wear a dress again and feel appropriatenly dressed.  A gray lace dress accented with pastels works well for the spring but I can see it looking just as chic with white pumps and bag come summer.  For fall I’d pair it with navy and burgundy and a red blazer for the winter holiday season!  

This Avon dress launches April 14 but the jewelry is available now at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger.  For this un-normal Easter I’ll probably just wear a white sweater and lavender cords for a more casual Easter OOTD.  I WILL however, be still coloring eggs, making Easter basekts for my family and husband and making a delicious meal served on my hardly used fine china.  

How I Wore It – Shift Dress

Shifting seasons is easy with the right pieces.  Yesterday I showed you my inspiration for 3 constant trends, the shift dress, the skinny pant and safari chic, today its how I’m wearing it.

The shift dress for me means clean lines, and what’s cleaner than a an all white one from White House Black Market.  When tasked with making the trend my own I immediately go for my favorite color scheme… black and white!  Nothing is more chic, always on trend and always classy.  For my accessories I’m wearing all mark. starting with the White Now Necklace ($22) Studs and Style Stretch Belt ($16) Perfect Timing Watch, Star Studded Earrings, Black Facet Ring and Straight Up Sassy Heels all in and out of the sale section at my eBoutique.

The finishing touch to my take on the shift dress is my handbag, the Class Act Bag ($45).  Very classic in shape and structure but super chic and functional.  The zippered pockets allow for organization but still give you the room of the full size of the bag and the front pocket is perfect for keys phone and quick grabs.  This is one of those classic bags that should def be in you wardrobe.  Especially if you want to stay classy San Diego.  You can get the Class Act Bag at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com
