1920s Meets Me




photos done by Mary Frisby 
Ever season has an era that we try to evoke. For s/s 2012 that era happens to be my favourite, the 1920s. The 1920s is filled with early movie glamour and is the start of where we as people abandoned our fancy daily wear and advanced into a more modern time of fashion. A famous piece worn by the women in the 1920s is that of a cloche hat (the one I am wearing is by Francesca's Collections, I got this piece on sale for around $5 {such a steal}). The hat I am wearing is the perfect way to make any look more like the 1920s. Another piece that can make any look resemble the 1920s is that of a long strand of pearls. Long necklaces were always paired to any look back in the 1920s but no long necklace was as popular as a long strand of white pearls. These white pearls are by Tiffany and Co. but you can easily get fake pearls at another store for a fraction of the price.
I do not own a flapper dress but to bring over the flapper dress into the 21 century you bring the same basic shape and length use in the 1920s dresses but take away the over the top fringe. The dress I am wearing is a free people dress. I paired the whole look with gloves, a scarf, and shoes worthy of the 1920s and whola. I hope you enjoyed this post and if you want to fully embrace this era I really recommend watching the movie The Artist you get great inspiration from it.
Enjoy!!
