What do I do about my ball gown?

What do i do about my ball gown?

Months ago, I accepted a free ball gown/formal dress because I'm not the pushy sort and wasn't going to turn down the offer. It's a nice dress, don't get me wrong! Grateful to have a dress. My younger sister, however, is really picky and wheedled her way into getting my mom to rent her a huge, elaborate ball gown. What do I do to keep from fading into the background in my navy blue dress when my whole family is going to be in brighter and lighter colors?

Thanks, everyone! The ball went great! Wore my hair up in a braided bun updo with white flowers, and I actually got an antique silver necklace that shimmered in the light once I polished it to a shine. :) vintage stuff, after all, was encouraged. No stilettos... Just kitten heels, but that was plenty high enough for me, haha. Got asked to dance like the whole time! :) thanks for the advice!

Make sure your shoes and jacket are extra sparkly.

Wear sparkly jewelry or create a fantastic hairstyle. There is a lot you can do to "stand out" and as long as you're having fun, that's all that matters. :)

Sometimes less is more so don't worry I know how u feel. Your dress may b simple but u can still work it especially if it has a nice shape. Look carefully for shoes maybe silver or navy blue w different colors. Get a realy nice hair style that stands out hun n get some awesome make up tips that pull it all together. The ball dress I had was black w sparkles..I was worried too but at the ball every one loved it including me.
