hostessing gig


This is my good self at last years work Christmas party. I was one  of Santa's
 two helpers. My dress was made in record time by the awesome Jenni.

This year my friend Tam and I will be hosting the event. We have about
800 or 900 staff, so it's a decent size shindig and I have to look fab. I have
about six weeks to organise my "costume" and I'm VERY EXCITED.

After scouring etsy, Trashy Diva, Leona Edmiston,
  ebay, Stop Staring, Tara Starlet and Bettie Page, I have a shortlist.


Modcloth.


Tara Starlet.


Bettie Page.


Stop Staring.

And these will all be finished off with little vintage hats of some kind.
Oh, and new shoes will need to be purchased. Naturally. Thoughts?

  2. Your dress from last year is to die for, I love the print! I would do something completely different for this year, so I would go with the green Bettie Page dress, I have found at most Christmas parties everyone is in a sea of red and black. Hope that helps!

  4. Oh wow. If it helps, as I scrolled through each of the frocks I said, love, love, love and then got to the final and almost screamed LOVE!

  5. They are all nice but I love the top one! Red is my favourite colour though so I am biased!

  6. I think you should go with the rose Stop Staring! dress. Maybe you could also try http://www.pinupgirlclothing.com/ or http://www.babygirlboutique.com/. Bagel says thanks for the lovely comment :)

  12. The Stop Staring one is quite frankly heart-stoppingly beautiful, but then the Bettie Page one is just so classically glamorous! Tough call you got there, lady...xx
