In any case, I've decided that there's nothing wrong with a little fantasy and I may as well give some young ladies some style advice while I'm at it.... So, here's my Prom/Graduation dress fantasy #1 - I'll be following up in the next few weeks with some more prom fantasy looks!
Now: Do yourself a favor and get in the mood - Watch Pretty in Pink
|Annie Potts and Molly Ringwald in the John Hughes film "pretty in pink"|
|Lolita cupcake dress by Simone's Rose - Vintage Gold Label - $425|
I made this dress out of vintage kimono silk jacquard fabric and mixed in some new locally purchased fabric. I've connected with Cherie at Shrimpton Couture where I'm now selling one of a kind couture dresses made from vintage kimono fabrics. She's got a great thing going with her online vintage boutique and is the perfect match for my dresses. So, yes - THIS is the dress I would wear if I could! Pretty and sassy with a little bit of edge....

|Heavy Metal Gold vintage belt from Reluctant Damsel on Etsy - $13.00 (yeah, really!)|
|Vintage 80's gold spring belt from Pudding vintage on Etsy - a steal at $12.50|
|Couldn't go without this matching faaabulous heavy metal gold bracelet - by MissAntique on Etsy $45|
I'd be hard pressed to pick between some over the top earrings or some pretty and delicate pearl like lovelies (depending on the belt of course!) Hmmmm.. difficult decision!
|Gorgeous Vintage Cascading rhinestone earrings - $56 from VintageBellaBride on Etsy|
|Soo pretty! DIY that little bow heart brooch onto a thin chain - what a steal at $16.95!|
|This ring is just a must... It's fabulous isn't it? Floret stacking ring by Blanca Monros-Gomez out of Brooklyn - $198|
$68.38ASOS POSIE Bow Peeptoe Platform Shoe
Buuuut - since this is my fantasy, I've decided that I would be pretty happy and excited if I got to wear either of these Jimmy Choos or Christian Louboutin's
|$995 / Jimmy Choo Keenan Metallic Caged Sandal|
|$995 / Christian Louboutin Fetilo Peep toe pumps|
And the clutch!
Well, that's that... I might go over the top and rock out this really great shrug as well, just because it's fabulous!!
