This dress has to be one of my most favourite dresses I now have in my wardrobe. I genuinely cannot express my love for it. Not only does it add some 1920's to my collection, it takes me back to my dancing days. The day I received the dress, I must have spent a good hour dancing round the flat in it... much to Tasha's amusement!
When M&Co got in contact with me, and asked if I'd like to take part in their style challenge, featuring a flapper dress, I didn't have to think twice about saying yes, and this dress caught my eye straight away. I've said this so many times now, but I love taking inspiration from past decades, and the 1920's glamour is one of my favourites.
The fringing, the colour, the neckline, the length, everything is just my style, and it even compliments my very pale skin... which is something of an achievement for a dress with so much skin on show!
I knew exactly how I wanted to accessorise this dress, looking at the Great Gatsby and all things traditionally 1920's. My signature red lipstick, was of course the first thing that I thought of, along with these white heels that featured in my 1940's style outfit... told you I like looking back in time for fashion inspo!
I also knew that I wanted to add a headpiece to my outfit, and I managed to find this one hanging in Miss Selfridge. While I knew that I wanted one to accessorise this dress, I wasn't entirely sure whether it was actually going to suit me or not. But do you know what, I absolutely love it! In fact, I'm currently trying to think of how I could blag wearing this to work... although I don't think client's would be too impressed. Maybe... Maybe not.
The more I think about it, the more I think this dress is going to be perfect for the upcoming Christmas season, and is probably what I'll be donning for the office Christmas party. The embellishment on the neckline is lovely, and the ombre effect on the fringing makes it that little bit more Christmas Party ready.
I need to say a massive thank you to M&Co for sending me this lovely dress, but also Tasha, for not only not laughing at me while I practise my charleston around the place, but for helping me take photo's and do my make-up! Perks of having a blogger flat-mate, huh!
Would you add a little 1920's to your wardrobe?
This dress was sent to me by M&Co, however love for the charleston, and all things 1920's are completely my own.
