20′s inspiration

posted by on 2013.04.17, under Editorials







The fashion of the 1920′s was glamorous, sultry, dramatic & daring. Some of the things they wore during that time, like head pieces and stacks & stacks of bracelets, would have given the arm swag and hats of today a run for our  money. That is exactly why I’ve recently been inspired by this era of fashion, for all the reasons I just mentioned, but also because it really embodies what I think a woman is. Most women love dressing up for a night out and feeling glamorous and sexy . Whether we are wearing a bold lip color to be daring, like I often do, or throwing on a big necklace for a dramatic statement, we all have a bit of 1920′s inspiration running through our veins.  These particular photos are from a Vogue Germany editorial that I just fell in love with!

Speaking of dressing up for special events and getting glam, I’m in New York right now for a collaboration with Tiffany & Co preparing for the unveiling of The Great Gatsby Collection and  to attend the very special Blue book gala. I can’t wait to share more with you about my experience at these two events!  So check back to see more updates!

omg those images are amazing. the roaring 20s wasn’t exactly my favorite era just because the cut wasn’t that flattering, but i definitely love the 30s because of the hollywood glamour and the introduction of the bias cut in dresses.

I always have the 20′s and Tiffany’s blue! Love the hair and sophisticated look in that period. I am a fan!

Glad to know the flapper era is back in! The Great Gatsby, along with the Fountainhead are some of my top favorite books! We’re actually going to be doing a 1920s’ themed photoshoot with some local bloggers here in the Bay Area soon!

I have always thought I should have been from that era. It’s my favorite :)

    I agree sometimes I feel so drawn to a style from a particular era like the 20′s that you can’t help but think that!

    Chriselle ( April 18, 2013 at 11:45 AM )

Old glamour. So amazing. Black and white is my absolute favorite.


Kristina Wilde ( April 17, 2013 at 2:02 PM )

    Yes it’s one of my favorites too! That kind of glamour is hard to come across these days!
