The final instalment in this series of my Vintage Style articles for Hotter Shoes shines a spotlight on the 1920s. I must confess; I think of all the looks that I created for the series, this one is my absolute favourite! As soon as I saw the Juliette shoes, I knew they would be perfect for a 1920s style, and I started planning outfit possibilities immediately.
The main component of my outfit is a wonderful original 1920s dress, to which I owe a massive thank you to my best friend Sarina for letting me borrow it!
The 1920s is an era I do not dress in often, although I have a feeling that may be about to change! I can definitely see how the Flapper girls of the era felt free and liberated in their attire. It felt wonderful to move freely and not have the constraints of structured belts or fitted clothing.
I managed to record a super-goofy video on my phone (well – I should re-phrase that as Kieren managed to record the video), of me doing some Charleston dancing, which is over on my Instagram (click the link here to view).
Hopefully in the not too distant future, I plan to make a few 1920s style dresses, as they would be so perfect for the summertime!
