Morning, Sunshines! I hope your week has been magical <3 Today I'm bring you all another 1920's themed outfit ( promise, I still LOVE the 50s- just wanting to shake things up a bit ;) Speaking of which, I finally got my hands on a copy of  The Great Gatsby- Summer reading, here I come!

This lovely dress is another piece from The House of Recollections collection- Thongbai surprised me with this little dress along with the yellow frock I styled a bit ago. It is so beautiful- I knew it needed the full flapper ensemble to really show it's Gatsby-ness :)

What glamorous flapper look is complete without a feather headband dripping with crystals? This beautiful headpiece is from Brides Boutik. I think this would be so pretty for a 20's themed party, or even a wedding.

I personally think the '20s suit you very well, and I love this particular look on you! Very nice, cheerful color palette. :)


Kristian said...

Dreamy attire- and I really don't think I've seen anyone who pulls off the hairbands like that as well as you do!

Katie said...

This look is stunning. I love how you're totally in character with the 20's vibes! The black and whites are exceptional!

Head to toe gorgeous! I LOVE your hair in this amazing post! Someone invent a slew of new adjectives for me cause my vocabulary can't do justice to this photo shoot!

What a stunning post, Alex! You are a true beauty :)
I hope the rest of your week is absolutely magical!

So pretty, I love the 1920's!

Purple said...

So stunning! As much as I love your 50's looks, I think there's definitely a lack of 1920's goodness in the blogosphere, so I'm totally in support of these lovely posts <3

Oh, it's so pretty and you're so pretty!

I have wondered . . . have you ever gotten stared at/been scoffed at for wearing vintage outfits a lot? How have you dealt with that--and had the courage to keep wearing them?


Alexandra Marie said...

@hannah barta Aw, thank you! It's interesting you should ask. I think I get compliments more than anything- but yes, lots of stares haha! And I have some friends and family who aren't a fan of how I do my makeup- especially my bright lipstick. I think it definitely takes a lot of confidence to wear full on vintage, but honestly that's what I love the most. It's the way I express myself, and if that's who I am then I don't care if the rest of the world doesn't like it ( as long as it doesn't hurt anything,and as long as it's modest ;)

Unknown said...

Love, love, love that dress!
I so enjoy your photos! They transport me to a past time and give such inspiration!

Hannah Wilkinson said...

Amazing! That dress, those shoes and that headpiece.....everything is perfect!

Unknown said...

Yay, another 20s look! You'll have fun reading The Great Gatsby--it's an awesome book!

so cute, how ever did you find a gorgeous location like that? he-he <3

Katie Aman said...

I absolutely adore the 1920's. I don't wear a lot of that decade because, honestly there isn't a lot of it left out there! I wish I could find more 20's inspired clothing out there! This dress is so light and free and what a gorgeous print for spring/summer! I love how complete you are with your looks-not just using one or two items, but styling it with the right jewelry/bag, headpiece-you amaze me every time! Beautiful :)
And your grandmother's necklace is the most astoundingly gorgeous piece. How lucky are you to possess that? :)

Ali Hval said...

Aauuugh, I will never get over your beautiful styling, my lady! Red lipstick always looks absolutely dashing on you. Absolutely!

I love the greenery in these photos and that delicate beaded purse is just the perfect touch. I hope your weekend is utterly full of magical things!

You are so pretty! I love 1920s fashion too. Have you watched Midnight in Paris? The costumes in the film are breath-taking.

Sara said...

jana said...

I thought you were the queen of '50s looks. I swear, you could've been pulled straight out of that era. And then you post these photos, and I could swear you were actually a flapper in the '20s.

Wow, so beautiful! <3
