|Barbarella Prom Dress: Fever*|
|Shoes: Carvela Assess|
I'm never quite convinced that I suit the hemlines and silhouettes of the era but I love a good textured fabric, so this won me over in no time. And it's always good to try new things, right?
I belted the dress (partly because the sizing on this runs large and I could have gone down a couple of sizes) using a vintage belt which my Nan actually wore in the 60s. I then found this coat and realised it would match my new Carvela heels quite nicely and hoped the gold detail would draw it all together. Note also my stab at a hair-do inkeeping with the style..
