Easter Parade, Retro Modern, New York, 2006

If this is all vintage then it is done with the most modern take I have seen in a long time.

It love the textured sleeves peeking out from under the jacket.

I love the skirt and don’t get me going on the hat!

This was my favorite look of the day. Bravo!

    Excuse the foreigner asking: What’s Easter Parade about?

    I dont think this outfit cuts it. Looks like a smorgasboard of stuff from the bottm of the closet.

    She is great, the main archivist at the Condé Nast photo archives, and she is a milliner who makes all of the hats she wears herself!

    This foreigner also wants to know what the Easter Parade is all about! (I just know it from the Barbra Streisand movie… :-D)

    The skirt looks new – there are so many of them around in Holland these days, and I’m getting SO tired of people wearing them with cowboy boots… But fortunately, this lady has a totally different take, and she looks fab!

    I’m pretty sure the Easter Parade is just an excuse for people to show off their fabulous Easter bonnets and other spring fashion.

    She is divine all over, the quintessential example of Best Dressed at the Easter Parade. From hat to shoes. Divine.

    Flipping fabulous. Those sleeves really caught my eye, as well. Such an elegant, gorgeous look.

    Please know that that the lady in the photo is not only a Curator at the Conde Nast archives, she is also a miliner in her own right. Yep, she made the hat herself. Her name is Gretchen Fenston, for the record.

    Thanks for identifying this young lady- I will try to let her know about this post. Maybe I could do another, more in-depth post about her obvious great style.

    The sleeves poking out from under the jacket make it look interesting.

    The sleeves peeking out from that lovely jacket are great, as is the skirt. Very pretty and interesting. I have never heard of an Easter Parade.

    I can hear stevie Wonder singing:
    Isn’t she lovely/Isn’t she wonderful/Isn’t she special… No question marks required, the statements are appropriately rhetorical.
