where to buy:

this is by far one of my favorite trends for spring. if i could have lived at any other time period, the 20s would be one of my top choices. the clothing is so beautiful and so sexy without the slight bit of vulgarness. it is all about drop waists (in a chiffon, flawy fabric can look so flattering), feathers, flapper dresses, feminine fringe, streamlined cuts, luxurious (or luxurious looking) fabrics, art deco beading. they are beautiful, almost romantic looking pieces. and what better a time for the feeling of optimism and hope for the future than right now.
