Obsession: Flapper dresses

Fuelled by the latest series of Downton Abbey, seeing Cabaret on the stage, anticipation of The Great Gatsby coming next year and a Christmas party at an art deco venue has sent me slightly crazy for flapper dresses.

So much so, that after much thought I decided to make my New Year's Eve party Roaring Twenties themed. I had originally planned for it to be a Strictly Come Dancing themed party - sequins, feathers, fake tan, lip gloss, lashes and twirling - but I couldn't resist the opportunity to get all dolled up like a Bright Young Thing.

I posted already about a Ted Baker dress that's in the running for my NYE 2012/13 outfit (amongst others), but I've since found many more, and it's making the decision quite hard!

The biggest problem, though?

Making my fifties-style figure look acceptable in a twenties-style dress. Drop waists and loose silhouettes are not my friend! Hmmmmm.....

  1. Beautiful dresses, I especially like the River Island one. But I don't have any parties to go to yet!
