Retro Looks

I’ve always had a fascination with the by-gone eras.  Especially the fashion, hair and makeup.  Periods such as the 20s, 40s, and 50s just seemed so much more filled with glamour.  While fashion is like a rotating door in that it all comes back around, it’s never like it was the first time around.  So, in this series I will be taking a look from a period or a movie set in a particular period and interpreting how I would translate it for today.

The 1920s:

The 1920s are definitely back in style at the moment with the upcoming release of The Great Gatsby.  Even the Vampire Diaries have done a couple of episodes set in the 20s – Didn’t Rebekah look amazing as a flapper?  But all those sequins and the flapper dresses may be a bit much for now and you could run the risk of looking like you are going to a fancy dress party if you decked yourself out from head to toe.  But the Bob haircut and crimson lips look amazing at anytime – it all adds a bit of drama.
