monday motivation - easter bonnets and bouquets

 
 I was told when I first came to NY that I resembled the model Suzy Parker.  How I wish!  
I saved these images of her, tucked away and came across them the other day.
Just look at her elegant bonnet and beautiful bouquets.
How inspiring and motivating for Easter.
Do you have your Easter Bonnet, fresh bouquet and gloves ready?  
I am re-thinking a simple black sheath dress for Easter and some pretty pink accessories.
Do bonnets, bouquets, bunnies and the beauty of spring excite you?
love her gold bangles too.....

Can you guess what year these photos were taken of Suzy in Paris?

Love her classic look and yours for that matter! I remember growing up having an easter hat and white gloves...and shiny black mary janes...

I remember was when you got to bust out the new white shoes--fresh fashion starts :)

No idea when this was taken but surely she is a timeless beauty and so is her style.

I can see that!! Have always loved Suzy Parker. You're reminding me I need to sort out my Easter outfit!

Glamour Drops said...

Oh, oh, oh. Elegance, glamour, style. All rolled up together. Sigh.... Yes, well any excuse for a hat in my book. Easter bonnet? Yep, that'll do!

Ah, so refined. The first image is so glamorous.

No gloves and bonnet for me, but I do have my pretty Easter dress all ready to go and I have not so subtly made sure that M knows that since I was a little girl, I have ALWAYS had a corsage on Easter Sunday.

I just love hats but unfortunately they don't sit on my head well...to much hair. I have my Easter dress but no gloves either but I could spruce things up with a few bangles.

Enjoy your Monday!

I adore Suzy Parker, all those angles she was famous for.

Great elegant post for Easter.

Oh, so elegant! I can see you like this, tall, LBD and all!
A sweet little hat and an Easter bouquet!
Gloves are a wonderful idea!!!

Mary Timmers said...

I'll bet they were taken in the 1950's. And I'll bet you DO resemble her! Sounds like you'll be dressed like her on Easter too! I miss Easters when EVERYONE dressed up. We need to bring that back...

Ivy Lane said...

I always wear black slacks, a tailored black blouse and a beautiful bright pink silky flower pin..pearls and fabulous shoes...oh..and NARS Roman Holiday pink lipstick!

Town and Country Mom said...

She is stunning! And I love your idea of the black with pink accessories. I fear I am too behind to find a pink hat, much less gloves!

pretty pink tulips said...

Oh, I see the resemblance!

Love all things bunny, bonnet and flower related! And, I'm guessing....1960!

How lovely she is and I do see a bit of a resemblance - both of you are elegant and graceful! Guessing these were taken in the early 60's as Mother was a model then and she has a number of similar pictures.

How incredibly beautiful, I love these images...thank you for sharing Patricia. Hope you are having a great week x

Joyce said...

I can see the resemblance. I like the black with the pink. I havent wore gloves and Easter bonnet since I was a young girl. xo

Eddie Ross said...

Bonnets, bouquets, bunnies, and the beauty of spring...what could be more exciting? She is SO chic and you definitely do resemble her. A black sheath with pink accessories will be so gorgeous for Easter. We want to see pictures!!

So stylish and the bouquet is so lovely. Easter is a pretty time of year with gorgeous spring colours.
