I've been re-organizing my closet and came across this dress that I wore for a sixth grade play. It was my grandmother's at one point during the 40's, making it a great custume to wear for the historical period of the play, WWII. Then, the dress came down to my ankles and I nearly tripped over it. Plus my figure was not nearly as flattering as it is when I put it on, now. I took a few pictures and had fun editing them each differently.
The purse over my shoulder is another more-or-less inherited item from my mother/grandmother. I thought it matched the dress well. And the belt came with the dress.
