Vintage Egypt, Part 5: Evening Wear


Always my favorite category of dress, donning black tie for almost a week 
straight was SO MUCH FUN! Off we go!



The first black tie evening was a beautiful dinner at the Old Cataract Hotel. The dress is a grey and white chiffon, with strategically placed beads (for weight) to keep the neckline laying nicely. 


The shoes were such fun! I covered a pair of grey shoes in thousands of Swarovski crystals. Had I realized how many crystals I would have to buy, or how expensive it would be, I probably wouldn't have made these. But once I started gluing, it would have been a waste to stop mid way, and so I decided I needed to see them through. Flapper Cinderella vibes, for sure!
