I returned home with some swatches and spent an evening sketching some ideas, and after much thought settled on the bright pink
(flattering and a history with the colour cemented this decision).
Though I couldn't leave the lime at the store alone!
So I got some of that too, it's just waiting for some love and a project to compliment it :).
Anyway, after working on this garment for a couple of weeks each day after uni
(and right up to 1am the day of the party!) it was finished and I was very happy with the result.
dress - my own design
shoes - RMK from Hannahs
belt - portmans
nail polish - 'Union Jack Black' by BUTTER
lipstick - MAC pro longwear 'dress it up'
My Uncle set up a real professional photo-booth area
(with my dream SLR camera, incredible lens, studio lighting and remote control; jealousy!).
So everyone had a lot of fun with that, including the props.
But I've included a photo Ellen and I took (sans pink mustaches) you'll probably see some more of her outfit soon :).
