Accessories make the outfit. That's the mantra for this week's edition of Doppelganger Dresses, which paradoxically features not a single dress (gasp! horror!). But we hope you will still find it enjoyable, as we've got some nifty period inspirations for several GWTW costume accessories. They include Scarlett's white and black lace hat from the honeymoon and the knit hat and jacket Melanie wears to greet Ashley at the train station.
As always, you can find them after the jump. Let us know what you think! And fear not, dress fans: next week we'll be back with another look-a-like GWTW dress for you.
