Easter Fashion

In addition to the fancy Easter bonnets, some people were decked out from head to toe in retro fashion. Women wore gloves and carried granny purses. Men wore beautiful fedoras while carrying walking sticks.

This photo above is one of the more colorful costumes at the Easter parade. I especially love the Nana Mouskouri glasses on the lady in purple. My mom wore a pair of those when I was a kid.


Check out The Satorialist by Scott Schuman. He has two beautiful photos of people dressed like Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story. I think they look absolutely stunning.

Also, check out Rafe New York by Rafe Totengco. His mother took some spectacular photos from the Easter Bonnet Parade too. He's such a mama's boy!!

Great photo. Great clothes.

I've been an admirer of The Sartorialist for a long time now. Thanks for mentioning it - a great blog in my view.

I agree with Kuanyin - Manhattan is amazing.

These folks made me think that Easter is more fun than I knew.

And about the Marilyn Monroe skirt, I think I'll see if I can find a guy in a kilt, take a photo of it blowing in the wind and answer the age old question of what's beneath.

Oh, Ming! I browsed the links you gave...how fun! Easter is dull and boring here compared to New York!
