A Flapper's~ Early Fall Outfit
Here I've invested some good hard earned money into a perfect classic black wool coat with double buttons. I happened to have found it on etsy for half off it's asking price~
Hey you know us Modern Day Flappers are always on a budget.
But I also have been in love with Mink Stoles, and how big of a statement they make on the shoulders of a Flapper. So I had been looking around on e-bay, and came arcoss this fantastic 1930's 4 pelt mink stole for a well in range asking price. I just could pass these little guys up.
My pencial skirt was a thrift find. It was a bit too big for wearing high wasited so I took in the sides of the skirt to ajust to my shape. I love the one pleated detail over one knee, very early 1930's. The colour is perfect for the Flapper inspired image.
My yellowish ruffle sweater top was also a thrift find, and wearing it with this interesting purple skirt makes this look just pop with the details of the roaring 20's.
Hair~ air dried, and put up with Hot Sticks- let locks loose after 20-30 minutes, brush clean, pin longer locks to the nape of the neck
Hat~ Mi Amore Hats
Shoes~ classic black oxford kitten heel ~ Thrifted
Hand Pin and Pearl Necklace~ wrapped a long pearl necklace around twice, and pinned strands together to create an art deco looking piece.
