Okay, we all know I absolutely love Agents of SHIELD, although it was a rough way to get to the love stage at first, you know? Skye started out as being incredibly annoying, but over the past two seasons, she’s become my favorite. Over the next few days, I’ll be doing a series of posts on geek and pop culture inspired fall styles and outfits that you can easily add to your wardrobe rotation. My first post is, of course, based on Skye, cause she’s my bae, you know? I absolutely adore her, and her “I just came from a shopping spree at Urban Outfitters” looks.
As anyone who follows me on Tumblr knows, I’m a huge fan of Agent Carter. It’s a wonderful, subversive, feminist show that deserves literally all the awards. Like. All of them. SAG awards. Oscars. Emmys. Nobels. Best New Webcomic. Etc. Literally all of the awards, I tell you. So it’ll come as no surprise if I were to tell you that I spent like, a very long time digging up everything I could on her gold dress. And, let me tell you, the going’s been hard. I feel like the gold dress that she wears in the pilot is just not appreciated enough; so I’ve dedicated an entire post to copying the look with modern things you can buy in stores that don’t require sewing skills, a few yards of lame fabric, and many bitter tears.
So, read on for a piece by piece breakdown of how you can copy Agent Carter’s gold evening gown look for yourself!
