Wine & Couture: Va Va Flower

Va Va Flower


I wore this to Brunch Easter Sunday with my friend Marly.  It was a cold rainy day but I didn't care.  I had to wear my floral spring dress!  Of course we were the only people in the restaurant dressed up.  It made me think.....What's up with our society?  I recall going to church on Sunday as a child and everyone dressed up.  The men wore suits with ties, the women wore dress', the kids looked so cute and nice as well.  Now a days people just don't seem to care what they wear.  It's like the 'rules' I grew up with aren't taught anymore.  Kids wear jeans everywhere.  Women think it's appropriate to wear jeans and a sweatshirt to brunch (on Easter Sunday too).  I don't want to live in a world where people don't take a little pride in their appearance and try to look nice for themselves.  It's not even for other people, take enough pride in yourself to look nice and put forth some effort.  Just sayin.

I recall my grandmother being horrified when I showed up in Jeans one weekend visit.  She smiled and said "I thought you would be ready for lunch, go ahead and freshen up then we can go"  I scrambled to dress up and not keep everyone waiting to leave.  I never made that mistake again!  I always changed before seeing my Grandmother.  I thank her for teaching me these things.
I like SheIn.  The quality and pricing is so good.  However, they are in China where everyone is 5'1.  This dress should come to my ankles at least but it barely hits my calf.  I still love it and can't wait to wear it to the beach this summer!

  3. I love your dress and think it's perfect for a beach day of exploration or any hot summer day here in NC. I was so happy I got to enjoy brunch with you and even though our plans didn't go as expected, they still ended up being fun.
