I hope some of you have had the chance to see the new Gatsby movie. I haven't yet but fill me in what you thought.
I had a splendid Mother's Day. I'll share these pictures this week. I first wanted to share with you that I have an article in "Hey Doll!" This e-magazine is superb. Guess what, it's free too! So, no excuse for not clicking on the link. The wonderful Bunny and Brittany do a fabulous job of appealing to vintage lovin' hep cats like ourselves. The current issue explores Great Gatsby themes and is right up my alley. There were so wonderful contributors and I thought this issue was front row clap worthy. Right on ladies!
I did an article on assuit shawls and I thought I'd share some other photographs taken at the same time. I had a lot of fun with this article. My outfit is vintage with the exception of the shoes which are Re-mix.
Dress (1920's)- Etsy black silk charmeuse in great condition. Consetta's Closet.
Feather Hair Comb (1920's) -$32 and worth every penny so awesome vintage Etsy YoungRelic
Necklace (1920's) -I believe I got it from RubyLane during one of their 50% off tag sales
Headband (1920's)- hand-beaded with amazing detail. Ebay $50.
Gloves -vintage (1950's) looking back I wish I would have foregone the gloves as in most deco period photographs the ladies didn't actually wear gloves. Oh, well next time:)
Shawl -Assuit (1920's). Read the article for more details on these beauties! Total works of art.
Shoes -Re-mix on sale
Peacock Fan -ebay (from what I understand peacocks naturally molt and loose their tail feathers in the fall)
