Emily J. wrote in with one of the more intriguing requests we've had: "Hi! I have been a long time fan of outblush and have really enjoyed seeing the personal shopper posts. I wasn't sure what I would ever request help on...until today! I was recently cast in a local musical production of Pinocchio and am searching for a bright blue party dress that would work for my role as the Blue Fairy. I would also love the dress to be able to work for a few upcoming late summer/fall weddings. Your help would be very much appreciated! I am usually a size 14 in dresses and looking to spend around $150 (or less!). Thank you for considering my random request, Emily"
Janetor here: Hmmm, interesting, Emily! According to Google, this is what the Blue Fairy looked like in the original Disney movie. I wasn't sure how true-to-stereotype your director would want you to look, so here's a mix of short and long dresses that could work on stage, with accessories and props, then double duty as wedding/party guest dresses down the line. Let us know which one you like!
