MORE FABULOUS FLAPPERS!

CREAMY WHITE.  DARING DRAPING.  BEAUTIFUL BIAS CUT SATINS AND SILKS SKIMMING THE BODY TO REVEAL GORGEOUS GAMS!

Now THIS is glamorous! 



Here are a few other things I found to share that are influenced by this Golden Age of fashion...

Old Hollywood movie star glamour is what you get with this jaw dropping vintage gown!  This has a real breathtaking silhouette, with the yummiest buttery fluid fabric slip dress and a short hand beaded sleeveless jacket to wear over top for sensational sparkle lighting up your face.  I love how Red House Vintage styled this showing different accessory options!
 Roaring 20's lustrous ivory silk crepe de chine treasure, handmade with rosettes revealing the matte and shiny sides this decadent fabric. Like many dresses made around this time, this dress features a slip-like under dress and tunic.   Pretty piping, cap sleeves and a flattering v-neck are just a few of the details that make this piece so divine.  From Nacho Kitty.



Vera Vague offers this amazing and nearly angelic take on this look with this gently pin tucked version. The soft, butterfly sleeves and a gently scooped neckline could be amped up with long layers of pearls and rhinestones for a more cocktail look for this gown made of delicate silk crepe.



Here's another wedding dress that would be wonderful for a unique evening ensemble.  Imagine sipping martinis in this dropped waist, hip tucked number at your next social event!  This one has collar that reveals sexy skin through sheer lace at the shoulders.  If you are wanting to use this for a wedding, the shop owner, Retro Vintage Weddings, has several suggestions for the extras...a super long veil, opera gloves, something at the hip...?

Why Not Be a Little Extra Glamorous Today?

You've found some gorgeous items. I love the 1920's & 30's. I plan on renewing my vows when we hit 20 years in 2 years. I think I may go vintage. Thanks for including our vintage dress!

I wouldn't mind locating a tea-length dress in white muslin. I'd probably just wear it around the house for mid-afternoon tea dates with friends or spouse. It just looks like a carefree, feminine way to dress.
