At the Easter Parade in New York City, you are sure to see all kinds of Easter outfits strolling on 5th Avenue - from the most fancy and refined to the most flashy and ridiculous! Yesterday was a beautiful day in NYC, and I simply had to see the parade before making Easter dinner... was I ever glad I went.
The origins of the parade date back to the 1880s, when church attendees would stroll up and down 5th Ave wearing their Sunday best. People would come out to see what the upper class were wearing! Today, the Easter Parade is a mix of glamor, absurdity, and just plain fun.
OPI Do You Lilac It? is a perfectly springy pastel purple shade. It applies beautifully in two coats and wears well without chipping. I love that OPI mimicked the shade of a real lilac flower by adding a touch of blue to this creamy hue.
I hope you had a lovely Easter if you celebrate!
