|My sister took this picture after the party, once my hair had gotten mussed.|
I've already written about the skirt and the petticoat supporting it--they're the 1950s skirt and petticoat that is part of The Semiformal Outfit That Never Was. The belt is on-loan from a friend for a completely different event (which I will write about sooooon). The hat is my felt pillbox, worn so the feathers are at the front -- which might not have been the best idea. I don't quite like how it looks in the pictures. The cute peep-toe shoes are my mother's. The jumpsuit (yes, that shirt-like thing is a jumpsuit) is probably by far my favorite part, though. I found it at a thrift shop a few years ago and use it normally as a warm-weather reading-in-the-sun coverup because it's comfy and it looks like a wrap dress, but it actually has shorts built in. I wish I had some better pictures of it, but the only one that shows the entire dress is from last spring break.
|Here, I'm wearing the jumpsuit as a swimsuit cover-up at Disney's Castaway Key.|
To say the least, I stood out among a crowd of an assortment of light sundresses.
