Hi there darlings!
As you may have noticed Screenie just loves the glitz and glam of the 20s, so when Halloween rolled around I couldn’t miss the opportunity to break out my sparkliest flapper dress and dance on into the dazzly decade. But now that carved pumpkins on porches are starting to look rather sad it just means that the holidays are in full swing! So while it may seem that decade dressing may be gone until the Great Pumpkin visits again, the festive holiday season is the perfect time to play up your favorite vintage looks.
From party perfect 50s cocktail gowns to 30s velvet gowns, delving into the past makes holiday parties all the more jolly! So while I’m missing my Halloween costume, today lets look at how to add some 20s glitz to your festive look. Whether you’re headed to Thanksgiving with your family, a festive fete with friends, or to a grand Christmas ball you’ll be the belle! And dears if you do get invited to a Christmas ball, please bring me!
Thanksgiving with the Family
Whether you’re headed to a feast with all your cousins or meeting the family of a new beau, you’ll want to keep the look classic with pops of glitz and glam. The key is in the accessories. My suggestion? Stick with a cute headband or earrings and add a little pop to your lbd. It doesn’t hurt if that lbd has the drop-waisted 20s look!
This is where you can get really fun and glittery with your look. The holidays were made for faux fur and glitter, so break out that old mink stole from Great Aunt Sally or put on a beaded dress. A holiday party is the perfect time to wear that piece that might be just a little too much the rest of the year.
Even Daisy will be jealous when you show up in the shimmery number!
If Great Aunt Sally got rid of her mink, or you just don’t have a Great Aunt Sally, try your local vintage shop. They should have a great selection of old furs and most likely the original owner’s name will be sewn into the label on the inside. It’s fun to give pieces a second life and imagine what kind of adventures have been had in it!
If you’re local to the Philadelphia area, Malena’s Vintage Boutique has some gorgeous pieces, like this beautiful chocolate mink.
Whether you’re attending a grand affair, or decide to have an extravagant gathering at your home, you’ll want to make sure you’re dressed to the nines!
You’ll turn heads in this elegant gown. And break out that stole again, it’s sure to become your go to item this season!
