Prom dress


So this was my prom dress about three years ago, amazing huh? I bought it at Xtabay before it became a "vintage boutique" (I love Xtabay, but now it's just formals and bridals, so I have no reason to go). I'm thinking it was some sort of parade dress or something, because it's just so over the top with layers upon layers of lace, one shoulder, and a big bow on the side. Like a mix between "Gone with the Wind" and "Pirates of the Caribbean". When I went to prom I wore a rhinestone skull and crossbones necklace just to complete the look :)

Yesterday Lisa let me borrow a tripod for a while, so now I think I will do more dress up posts. I have so many vintage dresses that are either too formal, or too fragile for everyday wear, but must be seen! And Sam usually runs and hides when I say "Take my picture!" Probably because I look and them and make him take them again, hehe. The next photos will be better, these turned out super grainy, maybe next time I'll try them out in our little front yard, but I just really liked the fireplace, it's so cool.

*Check out this post Cici did of the white dress she just bought from me :)

Here is a interview I did for Cool Etst items under $20 about a hat.

Yeah I didn't even know key holders existed! It's a shame they aren't used anymore.
