I’ve always had a love for the 1920s. Everything about it seems carefree and extravagant. Learning about the twenties in AP American History and reading The Great Gatsby in English Honors only furthered my fondness for the period.
Now, I’ve noticed, many other people have acquired a love for the decade! Recently I’ve seen influences from the twenties all over: in music, in fashion, and in pop culture. Needless to say I love it!!
I love this Mink Pink dress so so much. It has a higher neckline but a shorter hem, which was a trend in the 1920s. Also, the print on the top half, with the shapes and stripes, is similar to those popular then.
This vintage clutch is from Modcloth and everything about it screams 1920s. The beading is phenomenal and the off-white and tan colors were so very popular in that decade.
Beading, beading, and more beading! Needless to say I’m utterly obsessed with this 20s inspired cocktail dress from Parker NY!
Even music is being influences by the 1920s! Will.i.am, the electro-pop artist, released his new song “Bang Bang” a few weeks ago which surprisingly has a vintage twist to it! Take a listen, it’s really catchy!
The weather here in New York is absolutely perfect. Everyday it’s been sunny and cool with a brisk breeze; ah fall has come. But, with new weather comes a whole new wardrobe! Fall fashion is my fav and I have been dying to get my hands on some patterned leggings and some comfy sweaters. My mom took me shopping at one of our malls and we hit the jackpot! (I’m still missing stuff from my wishlist though…)
What I bought:
1. Light wash demin button down (Forever21)
2. Purple V-neck tee (H&M)
3. White T-shirt (H&M)
4. Green cheetah ombre sweater (H&M)
5. Thick grey sweater (H&M)
6. Black bandeau (Charlotte Russe)
7. Bras (Macy’s)
8. Plum handbag (H&M)
9. Spike necklace (Charlotte Russe)
10. Leaf ring (Aldo)
11. Deep purple infinity scarf (Aldo)
What a haul, phew! I definitely burned a bunch of calories carrying those bags all day! I’m loving the muted and deeper colors for fall this year. Simple pieces are definitely in style right now and jazzing them up with furry scarves or edgy necklaces is the perfect way to do it!
