A whiter shade of pale

Outfit Details:
Hypatia Dress: ever+mi.crush 
(also available at Emerging Thoughts)
Double tea ring: similar here
Bow belt: from another dress
Mary Jane heels: estate sale buyout store

It's no secret that I really adore Kate Gabrielle's aesthetic, so when I saw that this gorgeous dress that she designed for Dahlia was being carried by ever+mi.crush, I knew it was a piece that needed to be added to my wardrobe.  It's such a dreamy dress, from the color (inspired by her sweet kitty cat, Hypatia, who recently passed away) to the vintage-inspired silhouette... and don't get me started on the amazing collar!  I ended up wearing this on Monday for my birthday, and got a lot of compliments on it (which is truly a testament to Kate's lovely design).

I ended up swapping the belt the dress came with, because I couldn't figure out how to get it to stay as tight as I needed it to (it's one of those fabric belts that you have to weave through a certain way, without holes or a prong), but I thought this bow belt was darling with it.  Oh, and this dress gave me the opportunity to wear my new (to me) off-white Mary Jane heels!  I found them on a whim at this amazing estate sale buyout store for $10!  I'd been looking for white Mary Jane heels everywhere, and these just happened to fit me perfectly.  I'm so enchanted with them.

In other news, our production of Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale (that's the full title, which I realized I'd never mentioned) opens this morning!  We have two shows (one at 11 AM and the other at 2 PM) today, and our theatre company partnered up with a local salon to do something called a "Braid Parade" before the first show, where a ton of little girls get to sign up and get their hair braided by stylists (for free!) and then get to parade around for the audience.  It's going to be so cute, and I'm looking forward to seeing a bunch of little girls dressed up like princesses!  Hopefully they won't be too scared of me for the meet-and-greets (that happens when you play the villain, sometimes)!

Have a wonderful Saturday!
