(Would titling this post "The Fashion of the Christ" be blasphemous and funny, or just plain blasphemous?)
Easter is a hard holiday for fashion. I feel compelled to have my children (and myself) "appropriately" turned out, but we aren't church-goers. Is there a need to get dressed-up for pagan egg hunting and bunny cake?
It's the seasonal transition that gets me. It's the first day for white shoes (white shoes! anyone?) and pastels are huge at Easter. Miss M informed me today that her black maryjanes are not acceptable for Easter. I must now buy her sandals. My Mother informed me today that jeans and clogs are not acceptable when it's 80 degrees and sunny. I must now wear jeans and clogs on Easter. And all summer.
This is my rock and roll love letter to you.
