1920s glamour

P1070941.jpgWith the party season coming up its go big or go home! Sparkles, glitz and glamour seem to be the order of this season. A great way to nail the glamour look os to take inspiration from the 1920s. My 1920s inspired turban is from the Topshop collaboration with Her Curious Nature, which has brought out some of the most beautifully embelished hair accessories at more affordable prices.

The swinging twenties, inspired outfit of the day

Today I am wearing an outfit inspired by the swinging twenties.The history of the fringe started to become popular the 1920s, one of the most popular dances, the Charleston, inspired a dress completely covered in fringe, that would move and shake along with the body moving, revealing the legs. These embroidered dresses became very popular in America and Europe.

These were many different variations including Gertrude Lawrence and Olive Borden in 1925-27 to Joan Crawford in a white dress with fringes at the sleeves and around her  body in 1932 and then there was Claudette Colbert in a long cocktail dress in 1935.

Finished my sewing project, I am sew very happy

I am working on my sea collection themed clothes collection. After allot of pinning, invisible hand stitching, cutting and blood, sweat and tears. I have finally finished my crepe de chine bodice with a detachable skirt. I got the dark blue crepe de chine material from an antique shop as it is vintage and then some light blue silk for the skirt. The idea is that with the skirt on it is very sophisticated until at the end of the catwalk the model whips off the skirt to reveal the skin tight leg showing bodice!

Little girls go Vintage

Is this cruel are simply kids becoming more individual and expressing themselves at a younger age?
