The Tale of the Lonely Dress

 
This story begins in a magical place called Target where I found and purchased this lovely tulle slip dress months ago!
It sat, alone in my closet, waiting to make it's debut out into the world. Hours were spent rummaging through the wardrobe trying to find it's perfect match.
One night while laying in bed, dreaming of outfits, I realized I had a striped top that would coordinate perfectly with this lonesome lady! There was only one problem: There was no place for the top to be tucked! Well, my inner 80's girl emerged and I realized I could bring the extra fabric to the back (almost like a pony tail), secure it with a hair tie, and tuck in the tail! I added a belt, accessories, Mumford the Glamscot, and this look was born! The lonely dress was lonely no more!
