all I thought I had to do was smile..

monday evening is guides evening in my diary, and this week we had an 'oscars' themed party, arranged entirely by one of the patrols as part of their 'go for it' challenge this term..they set out a red carpet, and asked everyone if they would come to the meeting dressed up as one of their favourite film stars, or film characters..we ended up with maverick from top gun, dumbledore, and various st trinians girls, 'bella' from twilight, harry hill, minnie mouse, and various others donned their gladrags..
i decided that i'd just dress up as someone off to the oscars (i'm utterly hopeless when it comes to even choosing who my fave actor / actress is!) so i figured why not dig out one of the numerous vintage frocks which have never seen the light of day due to not having the opportunity..think this one was a fab £8 from ebay, i'm not sure of the make but i love the crunchiness, and the colour! and then i added plenty of sequins, as inspired by christina here..the shoes are primark ones, and the sequin jacket came from the river island sale yrs ago with no idea of what i would wear it for!
