Get the look :: The 1920s





When I was young, I was a flapper girl for Halloween several times.  My mom hand-sewed my dress, which was white satin with red fringe.  She created a headband for me out of red sequins, got me a red boa and I sported some dress-up shoes my grandmother gave me (if memory serves me correct).  I loved that costume - so much that I had her recreate it for me as an adult (but specifically to be a zombie flapper girl).  She made me a grey dress with black fringe and I loved that costume as well (even if she was disappointed I went out with a bullet hole in my forehead that night).  I guess I've had a fascination with the fashion of that era for awhile and it seems to me that others do as well.  Then I saw Midnight in Paris the other night and it reminded me of how much I love that time period and how I wish I could dress like that every now and then.  So here's how (if you're kind of rich)!

Calypso St. Barth Margherita Dress - $250 (I'm in loooove with this dress and want to frolic around in it non stop)
Michael Kors Women's Clare T-strap Sandal - $145
Betsey Johnson Flapper Chic Shoulder Bag - $98
Charm & Chain Art Deco Earrings - $350
Loren Hope Flapper Tassel Lariat Necklace - $88

I love this post. I always wanted to have a prohibition styled birthday party when I turned 21...but alas, it never happened.

Calypso is my absolute favorite dress source! I love, love, LOVE those earrings paired with that necklace!

Your flapper costumes sounds adorable - pics please :-) This fringe dress is stunning! I'd twirl around in it all night long

What a GORGEOUS look-I'm in love! I'm a sucker for the 20s, too, but I'll admit I look better dressed for a sock hop than a Prohibition era soiree!

The sandals are simply beautiful. Í'm not very much into the flapper style, but those sandals can fit any outfit.

THAT DRESS!! And those EARRINGS!! Wow...I am so so in love! :)

I adore Woody Allen's movies. He is such a talent and one of the few directors from our times that still has a word to say in cinema. I can't wait to see Midnight in Paris. Your outfit perfectly evokes the style of the '20s. :)Ada

Wow! That's totally a dress to frolic around in!

ChinkyGirLMeL June 9, 2011 at 5:24 PM  

oooh cuteness! A flapper inspired wedding is something I was actually thinking about. I just love the whole flapper look, it's sooo fun and doesn't call for a lot of make up, you just need your red lipstick and you're all set to go =)

I always WANTED to be a flapper for Halloween, but I've yet to do it. Love this!

Tang June 10, 2011 at 12:06 AM
