Here's the details on this redo: Make this Nautical and Pin-up Style: take two. By the way, I almost always do these cheesy, self timer photo shoots at night when I have to use artificial lighting and I look exhausted. Therefore, I always retouch by adding a filter to my pics (I want you to think I'm pretty!) 
I wish I had more snow days. I just want to make retro dresses all the time. See you soon, I'm sure.

Way to go seeing the potential in what was originally an uninspiring dress! I really like the way you used red.
