20's Week Part I: Fashion

Inspired by one of the stories I'm working on, I declare this 20's Week!

Have I mentioned that I love the 1920s? I adore art deco, and the fashion--though I'm far too curvy to ever be able to pull it off. Flapper dresses make me look like I'm wearing a very glittery potato sack. It's a shame, since I love the aesthetic and did I mention? I have a bob now. My hair was down to the middle of my back, but I chopped it all off a few weeks ago. It's now more similar to my profile picture, minus the blue streaks (and even then, only because work would frown upon it. I miss my multicolored hair).

Here's a few (okay, more than a few) images I love of 1920s fashion:

I'll admit, I love the hats. I love a good cloche. I also have a fairly large collection of hats (not huge, mind you, but more than I can generally store). I want to get some command hooks and fill a blank section of all with a hat display. Just for the fun of it, you know. And because I'm more likely to wear them if I can see them.

And here are a few modern takes. I might be able to pull off something like this first one:

Look! Emo flappers:
I bet they listen to blues. :)

Of course, one of my favorite 20s style inspirations is still Evelyn O'Connell from the Mummy movies, but more on that later. Check back on Wednesday for 20s/20s inspired film!


  1. Great photos!

    I enjoyed the '20s fashions on the latest season of Downton Abbey, too.

  2. I am absolutely in love with the 2nd dress under the modern takes (right above the emo clappers) and I am going to a themed dance in a few months and this would be perfect. I know this was posted a while ago but I was wondering if you happened to remember where you found that dress at or whom its made by or anything to help me find that dress. Thanks a ton!
