Costumes You Can Wear Again (sort of): Flapper

Hey cats and kittens so this week’s Costumes You Can Wear Again might just be dancing on the edge of being able to be worn again.

But I liked this outfit too much so much I had to share, and if you like something enough you kind of adopt a “to hell with acceptable clothes” mentality,  and now that I think about it I have dressed as a flapper on 3 different occasions, so maybe its a more wearable look than I realized! 😉3881Just casually dancing on the edge of acceptable fashion choices 😉3903faux bob394040643893392138474094

Eyeshadow: NYX Smokey Palette

Lipcolor: NYX Shade Transylvania

Head Scarf: Vintage/Similar 

Head Chain: Old Necklace I have no idea where I got it so I suggest using a similar necklace or headband

Necklace: Forever 21/Similar

Gloves: Davids Bridal

Dress: Homemade from a slip and a fringey wrap, so you can do something similar, buy this cheaper alternative from Forever 21, or spring for this stellar dress from Unique Vintage. In fact Unique Vintage has a whole range of flapper dresses, accessories, and shoes so I might suggest checking that out 😉

Shoes: Payless

I hope that you all enjoyed this look and that you have a very Happy Wednesday!

Fashion Friday (20’s inspired)

Today’s post will be of the outfit I wore on Monday when I went to see The Great Gatsby. I adore the fashion from the 20’s so I figured I best take advantage of the outing to try my hand at a flapper inspired look. I didn’t want it to look like a costume but I did want it to be obvious what I was going for. I quite like the way the look turned out and hope you all do too.
