Denver Debutant

Early 1960's Ball Gown

While I was in Kansas City this summer my lovely friend took me to this fantastic vintage store. When I tried on this particular over the top gown I felt a bit like a debutant. Which, of course, in my book is a good feeling because in my brain one should always feel like a debutant.

I still have no idea where I'm actually going to wear this dress but it's been added to my collection of largely impractical dresses. I have dreams of a spring season ballet or a trip to the symphony with other friends who still enjoy playing dress up.

Luckily my amazing friend Jessica offered to take pictures of this dress and gave me a reason to wear this dress, do up my hair, and twirl around Denver for an afternoon. Jessica takes pictures with the Heartflip Collective. You can check out her other work here.

Your dress is charming! I think you need at least some horsehair braid for the edging of the slip, and possibly several strips for the crinoline under the dress. Can you post pix of the crinoline/underpinning of the dress? Perhaps you'll need to add some pouf to the dress itself under the pink cascades.

They are gorgeous photos. It's so hard trying to take photos of oneself isn't it haha. I always struggle and probably why I haven't done a fashion post in so long. Food is so much easier to take photos of. Lucky you have a friend who can help :) Gorgeous dress too!
