I know you girls can, but please be quick! I have to make whatever it is I'm going to wear tomorrow.

Here's the dress. The color is really bad here. It's actually darker red, and the beads are gorgeous glass. It's all silk. You can sort of see the detailing in the picture, but it doesn't do it justice.


I got it at Macy's for $12, when it was originally $155. I've been eyeing it for months now. With it I'm going to wear black tights and black ballet flats with ankle ties. That all looks really good, but it needs something else.

I'm going as a dog trainer to this circus themed party. You know.. fancy costume, stuffed dog, hoop, etc. Well, I need something to do with my hair. I want some sort of headdress, but I don't know what. Ideas?

i made a head dress once with a head band and some styrofoam board, i hot glued a half moon shape then glued sequins and feathers to it. i'm sure glitter would also work.

if you don't have those kind of supplies you could pile your hair up and hairspray/dump glitter on your hair then attach some big ornament thingies like flowers or whatever. big hair is good. or wrap ribbon around it. if you have short hair spike it out make it as big as you can and wrap ribbons around your hair, if you have any fancy buttons you could put those on the ribbon,

hope that helps,

I would glue some ostrich feathers to a hair clip, cover the rest of the clip in sequins and go over yourself with some glitter spray. Walmart has some that's scented. It's great!

Pretty dress for a great deal!

I like the feathers and glitter ideas but if I did it I'd start with a cheap tiara with combs in the sides. Just so it would be more sturdy on my head (little clips tend to slide around on me Smiley  )
