. Where can I find
One of my performance characters is the Merch Girl, an all-round helper elf at events, and I'd like to get her a uniform/signature look. I really like the style of retro-era air hostesses, especially the 60s girls with the shift dresses and go-go boots. However, I'm having a hard time recreating the style without going bankrupt.
1. I've seen places that sell go-go boots but they don't seem to have the side detail I was hoping to find. Also, I'm reluctant to buy shoes online as I have wide feet, go from size 8 to 10 depending on manufacturer, and a lot of women's shoes fit me weird. Are there any good retailers that do white side-detail boots that fit?
2. I've gathered from the pictures I've seen that I like the dresses that look like someone took a huge shirt and made it into a dress. For some reason I can't seem to find it in person (here in Brisbane) - either the colours are off or the sizes are off (I'm a size 12-14 Aussie; they usually don't go past my boobs). I've seen some on Etsy that come close but are so expensive! Any recommendations for affordable outfits, or perhaps other search words I could use? (what are those dresses called anyhoo?)
I'm trying not to look TOO costumey (as in, I could wear the dress for other purposes if I wanted to) but quirky enough. I was hoping for a rock & roll feel and the colours of this outfit seem ideal.
Where can I look?
