Belle of the Ball

As I had a week of holidays when I got back I did a lot of thrift shopping and came out with some amazing gems. The best find was this 50's or 60's gold brocade gown that fit me like a glove. I was so surprised to even find it as I've never seen anything like it before in a thrift shop but the fact it fitted perfectly even length, as I'm really short was amazing. It has really cool boning in it and a bit of tulle round the hips to make it shape nicely, which feels a bit weird at first but you get use to it. Oh and I forget to mention the best bit. It was $20!!!!!
 Now I only have to wait till my formal next year till I can wear it and I will need a date, or otherwise I need to quickly marry a prince so I can wear it to a ball.

 I literally feel like Belle in it.
You can kind of see the fabric better, it's like lace but with gold thread woven though it.
