Happy Easter 2011

Dress - Casual Corner's Annex Petite, thrifted
Shoes - X-Appeal, thrifted
Happy Easter everyone! Whether you're in church or just celebrating tasty candy season, I hope you're having a restful, happy Sunday. I'm heading over to Mom's for Sunday dinner of Ham, green beans and mashed potatoes. Yum! (Jealous, yet? I'm jealous of me not being there already)


This whole outfit cost me under $5. The shoes were $4, the dress 99p. YEP! A little research has turned up this dresses origins - Closed down in 2006 (I've also found quoted 2009), Casual Corner's Annex Petite [Sophisticates] was a long running department store spin off of Casual Corner. So this dress is at least older than I expected. I should have guessed from the "size 8" tag. Anyway the dress reminded me of the super-saturated Georgia O'Keefe paintings I saw a couple years ago. I came across this dress during the Super Saturday but refused to pay $4 (I bought 4 dresses already. 4 x 4 = 16!)... I figured I was safe enough to leave this kooky dress until 99 p day, and it stuck around for me. I love when that happens.

  2. I can't believe you got that dress for less than a dollar! The colors are amazing. I didn't even know Casual Corner had an offshoot store. Our Casual Corner closed in the 90s - are they even still around?
