Owl Dress and Easter Vigil Mass

It’s only taken me like a whole extra week to get this post done, but hey, I have a very busy life. Running my cat’s Instagram account takes a lot of time!

My family is big on church. We’re super Catholic (I even got married in the church!) and we always go to Easter Vigil mass together. This year, my sisters and I went with my grandparent to their church. Little did we know that they were going to do ALL 8 EASTER READINGS, and have 17 BAPTISMS!!! We were at church for 3 hours. Now don’t get me wrong; I love me some Jesus. But 3 hours is a long time to hang out with anyone. Luckily, I looked SUPER CUTE!

Owl dress – c/o Eshakti (sold out, but here’s another owl dress!) | Shoes – Chinese Laundry via DSW | Pearls – gift from step-dad | Earrings – No idea!

I got my sister to take this picture in front of the tomb in the church….. and then she took of video of my popping out of it and going TA-DAAAA….. just like Jesus did! (No one tell my grandma about that last part, okay??)

I don’t wear my pearls very often. First of all, they are super classy, which is not my general look. Second, they were the last gift my step-dad gave me before he passed away, so they are incredibly sentimental to me. But it’s a fun and classy dress, and I think they went with it perfectly. As for my earrings, you can’t see them very well, but they are little rose gold skull earrings. I wear them all the time and I love them dearly!

Last, let’s talk about these shoes. They are seriously my most favoritest shoes to wear when I dress up! They are like 1.5″ tall so they are super comfortable, and they come in like 5 colors. I’m thinking of getting the black and navy as well. My older sister has the same pair so we were twinsies that night.

Many thanks to Eshakti for sending me this awesome dress! I seriously could not love it more. It fits me absolutely perfectly, and it has pockets. POCKETS, PEOPLE!! It’s very well made, and it’s not dry-clean only. There was a bit of learning curve with me and ordering from Eshakti, but now that I’ve figured it out, my dresses are PERFECT. I order 2 sizes up; their dresses don’t have a lot of stretch (they always mention that in the description) and also because I have a lot of boobs. I also add an inch or 2 to my height because my roundness in the middle sometimes makes the dress a bit shorter than I’d like. So keep those things in mind when you order  from them. I say WHEN and not IF because their stuff is simply amazing and their prices are awesome. Definitely worth checking out!!

Here’s one more picture of the dress. Adam took this one at home, and I didn’t want to post it because I thought my arms looked gross. But you know what? Their my arms. They are cool and I’m not going to call them names because they do a lot of great stuff, like hold my awesome tattoos. So here it is!
