Good luck. My advise would be to take the initiative in your portfolio. New models will get offers which sound very flattering but you really need to look very carefully at the portfolio's of people who approach you and ask yourself whether you are happy with their quality and taste in images given what you see will be the best they can achieve.

Those that can deliver what a newbie needs to help them improve are often too busy to approach newbies so the only way you will get shoots with them is to "pitch" to those that may be receptive and give them the feeling that you will put the effort in to get a rewarding shoot for the both of you
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

Well Annie, you have a lot going for you, very attractive and a sense of fun. I agree with the retro-look comments, a friend of ours, a young hospital matron, scours charity shops buying retro clothes and has appeared in many jive/rock themed displays. So go for it!
One point, if you know someone with Photoshop you could have the 'long dress' shot tidied, squared up and the extraneous bits removed.
Good luck!
