The ribbon tied at the waist did not actually come with the dress - I added it after the fact to spice it up a bit.
I also would have worn more exciting footwear for you guys but I went to the Rosebowl Flea Market on this particular day which loosely translates to "you'd be mad to wear any sort of heel and this I've learned this the hard way"
like I said, no birthday-buyer's remorse here!
