Who doesn’t love to dress up? I don’t really need a reason but the Oscars come in handy if you feel the urge to don a gown. As a self confessed movie buff, I LOVE the Academy Awards.. the combination of Fashion and Film is enough to have me sitting up at ungodly hours of the night dressed up to the nines (Just me? Ohhh K then..).
Anyway, on the weekend, I visited a few Charity shops in order to find something to wear to a Cross dressing poker party (Still.. don’t ask) and came across an absolute gem perfect for my Oscar night party of 1.
While on a hunt with my housemates for various goods to transform the girls into men and the guys into trannilicious women I spotted a glimmer of royal blue.. and it was love at first sight. In front of me were a dozen brand new Asos gowns, with tags, at blasphemous prices. How much did this beauty cost me, I hear you ask? *Drum roll please* A staggering… wait for it… £10! Yup.. a bank breaking 10 pounds. I’ve never had an issue with Charity shops.. since half of East London is dressed in “Vintage Clothing” which is actually still second hand goods, just at ridiculous prices.. but the fact that I found this brand new, with tags, unworn for a mere tenner made me a very happy bunny.
I teamed the dress up with Gold Gladiator platforms I bought at a Topshop Outlet a year back and a Gold cuff I bought at Accessorize 3 or 4 years back. Since the backless dress, with it’s padded shoulders, makes enough of a statement, I didn’t feel the need to wear a lot of jewelry but IF I wore earrings I probably would have added those on to finish the look off.
Anyway, did you guys watch the Oscars? If so, did you dress up.. or am I completely on my own here? Haha.
Thanks for reading Londonistas!
Until the next post!
