Stepford Wife

Today is my housemates Birthday celebrations!! She has six friends coming down so our house is going to be busy! Not only that but they are all Gerodies, so when they get up to speed I will most likely have no idea what they are talking about (I'm a Southerner haha). I eventually decided to dress up a Stepford Wife (my cousin Clarissa's idea) which if you don't know is or are characters from the horror story (and film) Stepford Wives by Ira Levin. I thought it would be really fun to dress up all prim and proper and I had most of the stuff I needed for the costume. In the end all I had to buy was the cardigan and head band!

 The dress I bought just under a year ago from Dorothy Perkins, I thought it was a really cute 50s style dress, thought I have barely worn it! The pearl necklace I have had for years and was most likely an Accessorize buy! The cardie is from the Debenams sale and I picked up the cream leather gloves about a year ago from a charity shop for £2.50 (I was very proud). The Head band I bought yesterday from Claires for £4.
The only thing I can't decide on now is whether to wear the apron or not! It does make the costume look alto more mumsie but would a Stepford wife ever be seen out in an apron? Hmmmmm
