|Look at how wonky that got!|
I've already talked a lot about this dress and its undergarment, so here are all the pictures. The dress debut was quite successful; I felt so pretty and swishy all day! It held up surprisingly well all day, but I did notice a couple things. First, the petticoat waistband started digging in a little bit by the end of the night. Second, all the layers of skirt take up a surprising amount of space when I'm seated. I don't know how Southern belles did it with their eighteen yards of skirt.

|So twirly! Note that I had to switch shoes to twirl so vigorously.|
I love that the whole outfit was super cheap (with the exception of the shoes, which are actually my wedding shoes!); the dress fabric was $3, the petticoat $5, the cummerbund all materials I already had, and my earrings were from the dollar store! Even the cardigan was $10 during an awesome AE sale. The pearls were a gift from my mom many years ago. And ummm, the shoes were more than everything else combined. But they make me four inches taller, so they're awesome. Even though after an hour I want to saw my feet off. I have no idea how I walked around all day in them for my wedding.
