Down here in the Deep South, we take Easter garb very seriously. I 'm not especially proud of this, but in the 70's when I spent the winter as a P.O.W. in Neenah, Wisconsin, I drove through a snowstorm in order to buy my 2 year old a pair of white Mary Jane shoes for Easter. You can probably guess she was the only child at church on Easter Sunday not wearing a snowsuit! That said, when I spotted these adorable pink shoes and the exquisite dresses in Christine's Across the Street's window in Mountain Brook Village, it all came back to me. The Easter shopping ritual. How fun it was to get the new outfit, shoes, even the brand new socks and slip! Of course mine were never as fine as these, but a delight nevertheless. Christine's is a mother's and grandmother's paradise alright. When I hit the lottery, I'm going to shop right here!
