Guess who got invited to a swanky 1920s themed birthday party? This girl, yay! Nothing sounds more fabulous than letting loose like a guest at Jay Gatsby’s next shindig, and I’m
totally stoked very much looking forward to the event.
Fashion in the 1920s was revolutionary for women, whose hemlines were rising to the knee (shocking!), waistlines were sinking to the hips (bizarre!), and girdles became a thing of the past (Oh, my!) I recommend that anyone attending a roaring theme party rent the following movies for inspiration: The Great Gatsby, Midnight in Paris, and The Artist. You will absolutely fall in love with the fashion!
Personally, I have rented the following dress from RentTheRunway.com, and plan to jazz it up (no pun intended) with some 1920s accessories. It’s more form-fitting than the typical 1920s garb, but I feel that it will be more flattering to my shape. Straight, boyish figures were very en vogue back then, but this girl’s more of an hourglass.
Layer pearls and beads a la Coco Chanel:
Sport a loose, drop-waisted skirt:
And finally, embellish your mane with hair pieces or don a cache hat:
