The annual Miss Mystic Falls pageant was once again upon us on Vampire Diaries tonight, and this one was a real gold medal winner.
And I don’t just say that because Olympic gold medalist Gabrielle Douglas guest starred. It’s mostly because I couldn’t peel my vintage-loving eyes off of Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) romantic lace cap sleeve dress. I kept thinking how perfect a dress like that would be to wear to a New Year’s Eve party, a wedding, or heck, even while just lounging around in my house.
Of course once I discovered that Miss Gilbert’s exact frock was made by Nicole Miller (read: expensive), my penny-pinching heart felt defeated. Alas, I’ve found much cheaper — but still very suitable — options for for those of you who (like me) just have own this look yourselves.
