I think if I had more time and was able to get that hair volume, that would of helped. Also, my accessories were lacking. I had planned on getting some shoes from the thrift store and painting them pink but I couldn't find any round toed shoes in my size.
I should point out, I found a fabulous tutorial for how to style my hair on Violet Lebeaux.
Here's a better close up of the dress. I found the dress at the thrift store for three dollars. I had to alter it a little, after all it was a child size 8! I opened up the side seams and added pink satin panels. I also had to open up the seam on the sleeves. To make it look more finished I hand sewed lace to the sleeves and the bottom of the dress. As for the pink skirt, I found that at The Children's Place.
Now, I'm deciding whether to give this another go next year. I've got a whole year to think about it.
Last time I ask this, anyone dress up? If you posted about it, share a link in the comments and I'll stop by.
