Oktoberfest 11--The Best Laid Plans...

...of mice and men oft gang agley.

I wanted to try a new way to wear this dress. You'll recall that last time, when I first got it, I was shocked at how short it is! (Not that there's anything wrong with that!) I thought I'd try adding a crinoline under it, just to play up that image...but it didn't work; the skirt isn't full enough to make the crinoline look right.

I did add a bigger belt and tried to wear it sort of hip-slung. Anyway, here are the best pics of a somewhat sorry lot:

Accessories this time are black hose, pink pumps, pink scarf, pink bow headband, and gold jewelry, including a heavy bracelet worn as an ankle bracelet. I think that looks particularly sexy.

Couple of thoughts: I may try this again sometime, using the pink thigh-highs I bought for all the all-pink outfit; or I may get a pair of leggings to use with it and wear it as a sort of tunic top. Comments?

A few more pics on Flickr. More dressing possibly tomorrow, but definitely Wednesday.

I'm not sure I like either the scarf or the belt with that dress. The belt just doesn't make it for me and the scarf doesn't seem to add enough contrast.

I did love your other outfit that you posted today. Very nice!

yes, the pink checked dress is becoming a real problem for me--I loved the look of it on the rack...and I really love the way my legs look in it--but I can't seem to come up with anything to pull it all together!

It's a very cute dress and I do love your legs in it. I do agree that the scarf and belt don't best suit the outfit. There is so much potential for you in that cute dress. Maybe a pair of white heels, pink ribbon and mabe the bow. Its a minimalist look but it will highlight the cute little sissy that you are :-) love Cindy.
