So I was (somewhat accidentally) invited to a black-tie gala at the Shedd Aquarium. Not only is the Shedd itself completely bad ass (I really want to go to their new exhibit where you can pet stingrays!), but the theme of the gala is Be Like Bond, which is pretty awesome too.
Unfortunately I’m not actually going… But if I was, I’d want to wear this:
I guess tulle isn’t exactly Bond girl, but I imagine the top fitting like a glove. I love the unique color (The description says it’s green. It’s almost stingray-like, no?), and the crystal beading and embroidery is very Great Gatsby (I can’t believe I haven’t seen that yet!). I ran across the dress on Pinterest, and of course it linked to some random Tumblr page. But after a bit of image research—which I’ll show you how to do yourself tomorrow!—I found out it’s by Collette Dinnigan, an Australian designer. She actually has a lot of beautiful dresses on her site, though they’re definitely out of my price range. Oh well, a girl can dream!
