This is fun. It's a modern take on a bygone era from La Femme en Noir.

There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Here's another beautiful evening dress made from interesting material. This is crocheted metallic gold yarn. It was made in 1937 from Kostio de War, currently in storage at the V&A.

I've been watching this woman on Youtube and her adventures to reconstruct Worth's Peacock gown for Lady Curzon.

@Spookcat I did not realize that beetles were used to decorate things until you introduced me to it via your video. Apparently often used with metallic thread on either cotton or linen. Check this out:

Uh...maybe...perhaps I might have tagged the wrong person. But I feel @ShayP has a keen fashion eye. ;)

Thank you. @Ciardelo  I do. Well, at least I think I do.  My brain cannot process what I saw in that pic.  EVERYTHING is wrong.  I can't even joke about it.  The person that wore that outfit should be shamed for eternity.  The person that created it should be incinerated.  My opinion of course.
