A month or two after the Gatsby Party, I found (thrifting, of course) the dress that I wish that I had in my closet for this costume. Just for fun, I put the dress and accessories on again – to see if I liked it any better. I think it’s perfect.
And just to prove that no costume is ever COMPLETELY finished – here is the post-post final version, worn about a year later. The only differences are that I took the rhinestones off of the black bow on the dress, and added black hose. I’d say that I think this much be the very final version – but I know that is tempting fate.
This isn’t a fabulous picture – you can’t see the bow at all, rhinestones or no rhinestones – but I think you can definitely get the overall feel of the final costume. And I am really surprised how much more modest (and thus appropriate) the black hose make the outfit.
