Ooookay. I have a Bond themed dinner party coming up in around 3 weeks time. Which should be an easy thing to dress for. Alas,it is proving harder than I thought. I had bought a Julian McDonald dress which was perfect,though I had to take it back due to hideous sizing issues

I've decided not to dress as a Bond Girl cos it's a little too tricky. So I'm going as myself as a Bond Girl But do I go with a long dress,or go short? I asked 2 girls who are also going what they're wearing and one seems to be wearing a prom dress,the other isn't too sure (Then again I don't know how much I want the advice of these girls :p) So all advice my darlings is welcome

^ I would think short, but I am not the world's foremost Bond expert :p Seems like some stills from the movies would help ...

I found a short red bandeau dress on my lunch break today that I think might be a winner It doesn't scream Bond Girl per se but it has enough scope for me to jazz it up

I'm going to a party these weekend with the theme "Spring Bacchanalia, Mythical Being, Mayan/Aztec, Sacrificial Lamb, Feathered Reptile & Body Art". I would have loved to think of something crazy but too busy this week. I'm trimming an herve leger dress with peacock feathers around the bottom and the bust and wearing giant peacock lashes. Should be intresting to see what other people come up with!

Wow Guessgirl96 that theme totally beats the crap outta mine! For the 2019 party I went dressed up as one of my lecturers, as I plan on killing her and stealing her job and assuming her entire life in the next 10 years!! :p

dumbfairy I think a long dress would look more elegant. I found some photos for inspiration you should also Google it. There's lots of information on: http://www.ehow.com/how_4487394_dres...halloween.html
Good luck, hope this helps

^Thank you so so much! Quite horribly though,I now have a rather big flare up of psoriasis on my left elbow,which means I'm now looking for a dress with sleeves :-/ BUT I think I may have found one! Eva Green and character inspire me a lot!
