The gown, being fancy, deserves full-blown glamour treatment. So I added a sparkly fascinator, my highest heels, more jewelry than Zsa Zsa Gabor, and enough eye-makeup to rival Tammy Faye Bakker (Messner). Yes, I went over-the-top but when you have as much bottled-up desire as I do, sometimes the pressure-cooker blows. Boom!
What a gorgeous gown! The fascinator adds just the right amount of sparkle to this look. You are stunning!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! I've noticed an occasional splurge on a gown is worth it <3ReplyDelete
Glamour girl! You look lovely, Ally. The necklace + bracelet/cuff are just right - a good balance in accessories. I have a fascinator like that - I love the wee hat!ReplyDelete
What a fun fascinator!ReplyDelete
That gown sure was a snap at $18. You look positively fab-u-lous darling!!!ReplyDelete
Let's go party! (not that I have anything in my wardrobe that I could wear out with you!!!)
I love the fascinator! Great deal on the gown. Go big or go home! Go Big At HomeReplyDelete
you go girl!ReplyDelete
LOVE it!!! Can't believe you snagged for $18! You nailed it.ReplyDelete
Great dress and you did a great job of pulling things together. It works well with the makeup, jewelry and heels.ReplyDelete
I am always impressed that you are able to find such nice things, that all seem to fit so nicely, in your thrift store visits.
I have a secret which makes that happen...Delete
I can never find a dress for $18.ReplyDelete
I love it!
Especially that necklace!!
Found the necklace at Target for $12.Delete
You are the magic manifester of amazing dresses at a steal!!! I love the colors of this and how you paired it with the little hat tilted on the side. Jewelry usually doesn't look as over the top in photos as you feel like it looks in person. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, darling. :-)Delete
Yowza! Girl you nailed it! Simply stunning!ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous gown and veritable bargain! Love the make up, it suits the glam vibes from the gown! You slayed it!ReplyDelete
Ooh, I like your smokey eye! Not an overuse of shadow by any stretch.ReplyDelete
I also admire your shopping game. <3
You'd be the belle of the ball! Brava!ReplyDelete
The tiny haaaaaat! When you are doing a ballgown you gotta go big on makeup too. This look by you is one of my faves so far:)ReplyDelete
prom-tastic!! I loveeeee ballgowns. I used to put my blanket around me and pretend I was walking through my imaginary mansion in my gown when I was little.ReplyDelete
Boom! Haha. That is a great gown for $18, and love it with your highest heels. And you do your makeup waaaaaaaay better then Tammy Faye Baker.ReplyDelete

What a bargain! Love wearing formal clothes just wish there was more of an opportunity. This is one of my favourite looks of yours. So glam and beautiful.ReplyDelete
Very elegant! You chose the perfect dress to go all out.ReplyDelete
i think you accessorized perfectly. love the tiny hat!ReplyDelete
Beautiful accessories, and personally, I think you could use even more makeup. Tammy Faye, eat your heart out (side note: I just saw her again on TV recently, in one of those a look back documentaries... WOAH).ReplyDelete
Any thoughts?? No other thoughts than WOW, she looks GOOD! I think you didn't overdo it. The pink at the top of the dress is such a terrific idea. Well done. And for $ 18,- tssss, what a steal.ReplyDelete
