Sparks Red Carpet

the red carpet was hilarious.
and by hilarious i actually mean kind of terrifying! (in a good way of course)

there were people everywhere, along with crazy bright lights & more cameras then you could poke a stick at! it was really wild!
i’ve been on the press line before, taking pictures of people on the red carpet when i helped Mike out with Indie Film Nation, and even that was crazy – not to mention i was a little star struck (Joseph Gordon Levitt!!!!!), but this was a whole new strange level for me!
i did feel like my face was going to burst from smiling so much – but i figure that can’t be a bad thing!

some friends managed to snap some photos of us as we were shuffled down the press line so i thought i’d share a few

it was really such a fun experience.
plus i managed to find a 1940s dress to fit in with the era of the film, so i ticked that one off my list!

i wore: vintage 1940’s dress from Shag / sportsgirl heels / vintage bag
mike wore: ted baker endurance suit / ted baker shirt

1940s glamour

i’ve found my dress for the film premiere โค

i was sure i had my work cut out for me, considering 1940s dresses aren’t exactly the easiest thing to find, especially on a time constraint!
i almost just gave up, but a fateful pop into a vintage store on the way to visit a friend had my dress dilemmas sorted! my dress of choice was a gorgeous black crepe wiggle dress with a sweetheart neckline…(but i’ll share more about that a little later…)

below are a few gorgeous gowns that i came across while gathering dress inspiration on etsy.

this gorgeous black art deco dress from Rococo Vintage
this Jerry Gilden Rayon dress from Raleigh Vintage
this gorgeous peach coloured dream from Nod to Mod Vintage
and this stunning pink lace formal gown

so simple but so glamorous
