All Red Out-with a Dash of Purple

Tonight I took my daughter to see ParaNorman. We loved the movie and will definitely be buying it on DVD when it comes out.

In the theater (before the movie started).

 I decided to do purple accessories with this dress. At first when I put the dress on, I had got the inclination to put a purple v-neck sweater with it, however the sweater was rather thick and the thick ruffle on the dress with it, just didn't work. So, I decided to just do it more subtle. The strapped wallet is from Walmart, as is the necklace. The necklace is custom made. It was a college graduation present from my parents. It is in my school colors, the front says the name of my school, and the back is engraved with my initials, graduation year, and the name of my graduation degree.

I really love this dress. I bought it last year, either late fall or earlier winter, but it's taken me this long to wear it. I kept 'saving' it for a special occasions, but then decided what's the point? Before I bought the dress it was $100. I really don't like paying that much and waited, then I got a really good coupon and got it for more than half of. It was one that received a lot of flack online-too shiny for fat people, blah, blah, blah. I liked and bought, and I do think it was worth it.
The shoes are LEI

 And just because she's so cute.
