Yes, for those of you who are wondering, I am still holding onto the hope that I might be able to fulfill my promise to myself (wear this old costume five times and then maybe buy a similar Ann Taylor tulle skirt; see my first attempt here).

This outfit was well-received…by a nice (and likely fashionable) dude who shouted “nice dress” to me in the parking lot. You know you are doing it right when strangers feel compelled to comment on your outfit.
