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.
and to those who may wonder its just a ring, I am not engaged haha.
A little Charleston 😉
Head band: It’s just a lace ribbon from a fabric store.
Earrings: Charlotte Russe.
Necklace: Forever 21.
Blouse: Cotton On.
Skirt: H&M it was only $5!
Heels: Payless…I ended up wearing flats though.
Hope you all enjoyed this post Happy Friday. Have a wonderful weekend.
I cannot begin to tell all of you how excited I am that the weather here in Dallas seems to be calming down a wee bit. It’s funny how your body will suddenly find 90 degrees rather cool, after a week of 105! Fall is just around the corner, I can feel it, so I since the weather was quite nice I decided to dress up a little, and share my look with you guys. When it’s 105 looks are the last thing on your mind, it’s been lazy ponytails, slouchy tank tops, shorts, and flip flops most of the summer. This is the reason for no fashion Fridays as of late, so hopefully I will now be able to post more regularly now that it’s cooling down quite a bit.
I was going for a 1920’s flapper inspired look. I had pin curled my hair the night before and decided to try my hand at a faux bob, and I must say I quite like it.
My accesories and nail polish.
Necklace: It was my Super lazy DIY.
Bracelet: Family Heirloom.
Nail Polish: Zoya in the color Goldie, and Sally Hansen in the color Black Out.
Ring: My mother and my Late Father gave it to me 🙂
I really adore a vintage feel to my style, and try to incorporate a bit of retro whenever possible. What are some of your favorite vintage or vintage inspired pieces? What is your favorite fashion decade? I would love some feedback. As always I hope you enjoyed this post, and that everyone has a Happy Friday and equally happy weekend.
