The 50’s come to the rescue.
So I found something to wear to the wedding: A 50’s prom dress. It cost $30, is the colour of cheez wiz, fits like a glove and is very celebratory. What was I stressing about? I should have just gone to Temple of the Modern Girl (2695 Main Street, Vancouver) in the first place.
Below, a selection of prom dresses from eBay and the silver shoes I will be wearing with the cheeze wiz dress. I just wanted to note that I shortened my dress to give it a more modern silhouette and I think it’s also important to balance out the kitsch factor with some contemporary shoes and no jewelry.
