flapper party: what I wore

flapper night b I'm glad you enjoyed the last post, now here is what I wore to the Gatsby party! It was really fun getting into fancy dress. It really helped me get out of the house too; I made sure I got ready a bit early so that I wouldn't change my mind and end up staying home. I wore a vintage pink dress and a loose rust coloured sheer silk tank top over it to hide the defined waist, my sparkly tbar heels, a sheepskin shrug and a silver sequin hat that I just had in a drawer somewhere. You know, as you do. It came in handy as I hadn't set my hair the night before, thinking I wouldn't be able to go..! Oh, and a string of pearls and a flower were added for the finishing touch. I was pretty chuffed (and amused!) that I had everything I needed for it!

I loved wearing my makeup like this, and it was funny using hair gel to stick glitter to my face like I did in my teens. But smiling with the pointy lip line is, for me, a no no! Tres scary. And anyway, the flapper has to have a petulant pout, right? Right! flapper night j flapper night a flapper night f Oh, yes, I rouged my knees. No rolled stockings though, I don't have the right garters. But luckily it wasn't a cold night! flapper night d I promise I was in a good mood, despite the sulky face... and I had fun! flapper night g flapper night i

That is a great outfit, you did well putting that together with whatever you had lying around.
And I do not find your smile scary, although I know what you mean;)

Miss Maple said...

Dear Marianne. Guess I wouldn't have recognized you when if I had met you in the streets. You're looking quite different but very beautiful of course. Your hairdo is very appropriate and the silver hat is the bees'knees. What a glorious idea to hide the defined waist under this tank top. Love, love, love your whole outfit. And the colour combo.

Fashionista said...

Gorgeous. Your makeup looks fabulous. And how clever to have all your outfit components on hand!

Love it! I would never have picked that beanie to work with an outfit like that but it just goes! Adore the sheepskin shrug too, there's something special about that kinky texture.
