i can hear you asking, what do i wear at such a gig? well, how about this:
wearing a primark floral dress and lace top, asos bow headband.
not really! i actually stuck two of those shower or bathing balls (poufs?) made of some kind of tulle into a nylon sock and then into my hair! you see i became miss teenage hairspray for the carnival. well actually, my costume is whatever would have happened if tracy turnblad had won the miss teenage hairspray pageant. so if you don't know what to wear to the next fancy dress party, look at me!
my friend julia happened to have a matching dress (i like to think she was amber von tussle...), how cool.
i wore a primark polka dot dress(bought a few years ago for a fiver!), pink patent leather ballet flats and a pink cardigan also from primark, a tulle petticoat underneath i got from ebay and a self-made sash.
