Outfits of the Day – Arista and Lea
It’s hard to believe Easter is so soon! St. Patrick’s Day was just last week! I don’t know about you, but I like when Easter falls in April (a little more spread out, y’know?).
But, with one week until Easter, I decided it was time to get at least a couple of my dolls ready. They’re my decorations this year, since most of our holiday stuff is still packed.
A Modern Take on Edwardian Easter
Dresses: On Arista – Samantha’s BeForever Meet Dress with Maryellen’s crinoline underneath, On Lea – Samantha’s Special Day Dress with the skirt from Grace’s Sightseeing Outfit underneath
Shoes: On Arista – Shoes from Samantha’s Special Day Dress, On Lea – Sandals from Grace’s Sightseeing Outfit
Accessories: On Arista – Necklace from Samantha’s BeForever Accessories, Kanani’s Meet Flower Clip, Lace Bow from Samantha’s Holiday Dress, Lea’s Logo Earrings, On Lea – Grace’s Bracelet, Lea’s Logo Earrings, Ribbon Headband from Samantha’s Special Day Dress
Pink with a bit of burgundy.
Arista makes a pretty good Samantha stand in (though I’m sure her winged eyeliner would probably cause a few fainting spells in 1904), so I’m not surprised that Samantha’s Meet Dress looks pretty good on her. And since the dress is a cooler pink, Kanani’s flower clip and Lea’s earrings work well with the outfit. For her shoes, I could’ve just stuck with the black mary janes that come with Samantha’s meet outfit, but the cherry red shoes from Samantha’s Special Day Dress tie in well with the burgundy velvet sash.
Bows from head to toe!
Lea looks so good in mint, Samantha’s Special Day Dress was an easy choice for her. And since I was already using Grace’s sandals for her shoes, I thought I’d try the matching skirt to kind of fluff up the dress (it added a tiny bit of volume, but not much). I know in the stock photos, the day dress headband is shown worn with all of the ribbon loops falling in the same direction, but I kind of like it better as a double-looped bow (and more like a hair tie than a headband).
And now I’ve got Arista and Lea acting as our Easter decor in the den, with Kit’s chocolate bunnies, Samantha’s tulips, and a few other odds ‘n’ ends. 🙂
