Late Afternoon Glamour

Dress: Merona at Target (I added the black ribbon belt) {here}
Shoes: Christian Louboutin "Decollete" {here} {similar here for $125 and here for $30}
Clutch: Made by me (inquire for pricing)
Pearl Necklace: Gift from my mom {similar here and here for $25}
Earrings: thanks to Anjolee {here}
Ring: Kendra Scott "Tela" {here}
Sunglasses: Tom Ford "Anouk" {similar here, here, and here for $6}
Lips: MAC M.A.C. Red {here}
Nails: OPI The Thrill of Brazil {here}

This dress was a recent Target clearance rack find - at only $17.50, I decided it was worth the "splurge." I think it's a versatile garment and have plans to show you other ways to wear it very soon! I'm wearing and extra-small and hemmed it a few inches to a petite-friendly length.

Also, I'm back at Bulloch Hall where I started this historic tour last September. This estate was the childhood home of Mittie Bulloch, mother to US president Teddy Roosevelt. How cool!

Love these pics! The outfit and photography are both gorgeous. Bulloch Hall is a great site for pics - it's supposedly haunted, too. :)

That's a lovely dress...definitely a keeper and versatile for restyling. Love how the bow belt and hairstyle add the little touch of glamour and really amplify the retro vibe.

What a great find! I love how you paired the belt and clutch with the dress. It really glams it up. You sure have an eye for making affordable clothing look less affordable.
