Jump Back Ball Fashions and My Dear Friend Etsy

Accessorizing.  It’s the best part of Jump Back Ball prep.

The upside to last year’s dress debacle and scrambling for a last minute replacement is that I learned how much I love Etsy. A few accessories can take any dress and tie it into the theme.

Another lesson I learned from last year is the need to get my dress early – a dark blue one-shoulder gown that didn’t break the bank and is a great base for a Mrs. Peacock ensemble.

With the dress in hand, I turned to Etsy. From head to toe, I’ve found plenty of Peacock-themed ideas on the site.

And to complete my outfit, this vintage coat from one of my favorite Cleveland shops Room Service (who is now doing wedding planning for you soon-to-be Cleveland brides): Jump Back Ball Vintage Coat from Room Service

The only thing left on my Jump Back Ball to-do list: What’s a Clue costume without a weapon?

Or in my case, a handmade brooch inspired by Peacock’s weapon of choice. A trip to Pat Catan’s is in my near future – especially with this weekend’s coupons.

Going to this year’s Jump Back Ball on Feb. 23? Need some accessories to spice up your outfit?

Here’s what a quick search got me. Someone please buy the Hungry Hungry Hippos hat – I’m kind of in love with it:

  1. I love Etsy, particularly for JBB! I already got my plum fascinator, now I just need spectacles. I already have my eye on something (haha) that I think is just right.
    Oh, and your dress is gorgeous!

  2. Love your dress! I never would have thought about David’s Bridal for non-wedding occassions.

    • Thanks! I had passed it by when it was hanging up on a hanger, but then saw it on a mannequin and figured I’d give it a try. Had been to a few other stores beforehand – David’s Bridal was my last ditch effort. Glad I went!

  3. That dress is fabulous – can’t wait to see it all put together!

  4. That dress will be fantastic on you! Can’t wait to see it. Love that pic of you ladies too.

  5. I could spend HOURS on Etsy and Pinterest…danger zone! Looks like it’s all coming together! A quick go-to place that I’ve found some cheap costume jewelry too is Charming Charlie’s. Don’t have to spend a fortune and it often has that fun dramatic flair. Can’t wait to see your final outfit choice :)
