I think for me, Easter marks the time to start wearing my cute pastel dresses. I only recently found out that Easter was the time for white dresses but I’ve actually been wearing either florals or pastels on Easters since I was a kid. In keeping up with my personal tradition, I took my old dress out for a spin near the Capitol and realized that this would be a great outfit for Easter.

I bought this dress from Modcloth a long time ago (2014) to wear to a friend’s wedding and I could never let myself throw this dress out. I wore it on the blog back then, but I realized I haven’t really worn it since then! I love Modcloth’s inclusive sizing policy but they haven’t been the best about their policy on sustainable manufacturing. While Modcloth leaning into size diversity is laudable, one could argue that true inclusion should account for the well being of the (primarily female) garment workers in the industry, not just the consumer. Of course, at the time, the people making the clothes I wear were the last thing on my mind when I bought this, but I would like to talk about sustainable alternatives to Modcloth if that’s something that’s important to you. Style Wise did a great piece on 12 alternatives that you guys should all check out! In the meantime, the sustainable thing for me to do as an owner of this dress is to wear the crap out of it and wear the crap out of it I shall, especially for Easter Sunday!

Sézane Claude Bag
I would like to introduce the newest bag in my collection, the Sézane Claude! I was gifted this bag from my aunt and I absolutely love it! As I mentioned in my post on Monday, all of the pieces I own from Sézane are of excellent quality and the design is so beautiful. The Claude bag is made of leather (it smells amazing) and in this gorgeous half-moon shape with a buckle closure. The leather is quite smooth and delicate. I scratched it up a little bit already but I actually kind of like the look of old scratched leather - it gives it a more vintage vibe. It came with a leather conditioner as well which I plan to use soon. In the meantime, I tied my silk scarf from Coach around it to add a bit of flair. I’m seriously in love with the bag and I’ve basically worn it non-stop since I got it!
