I think something like this would look really good in a snowy forest. (Lulu’s & Etsy)

Or if you really want to embrace the forest vibe..

I live and die for Modcloth dresses. Not sure if they’ll have exactly what you’re looking for as they tend to have a more vintage vibe but it’s worth a look.

desertgypsy :  I think a velvet dress would look amazing in a winter photo with snow, forest and a sword.

Check out the store ‘rosetic’ for some ideas your daughter might like. They kind of do more goth stuff but some of their stuff might work in this scenario.

They also have a fairly artistic Instagram page which could give you some ideas for the photos.

desertgypsy :  OMG, I have so many questions:

What kind of forest? Magical redwood forest ? Romantic evergreen forest with rocks?? Stark deciduous forest with an architectural look? 

What time for photos? Mid-day sunlight? Golden hour? Dusk?

What color hair/eyes?

What is her favorite color or colors she prefers to wear?

There’s a lot more options too from this shop. With the exchange rate it should be below 100$ and their dresses are beautifully made 🙂

Ever-pretty is my go-to for bangin’ dresses under $100. Here are a few somewhat alternative ones I’ve found, but they’ve got all flavors of dresses so I’d definitely suggest browsing their site yourself:


I realize sequins are a hit or miss sorta thing, and might not really fit “enchanted dark forest”, but I thought these were pretty stunning and more edgey…but now for something more classic:


Not sure if there’s a strict dress code, but if you liked the velvet idea:


In other places, I’ve found this through a Google search, at “RetroStage” for $40. I’ve never bought from them but at the very least it’s some inspo…? Get those forest vibes:

High/Low Lace Wine Dress

I like this idea – but with some leggings maybe?

With the sword in mind, I’d aim for something more medieval, with the cool flowy sleeves that have slits for other colors to peek through. Or something gothic but a bit colorful. And with a modern twist… you’re not describing some peasant girl!  I found this one but it looks runway, so I don’t know if anything similar could be purchased. I hate doing searches on my phone.
