20s inspiration

7 June 2011

We're having our company summer party next week and we've all been asked to wear something 1920s inspired. Dressing up will be so much fun, but I've been a bit clueless about what to wear. 20s is all about silk, flowy materials, frills and blings... but I think we'd need to wear something a bit less formal, as we'll be out and about all day. I've been browsing the local thrift shops, but I haven't really found anything cute (and practical) to wear. And I've spent a good couple of hours online searching for some inspiration and trying to find ideas for my outfit. And these are a couple of my favorites... but they're all quite dressy too. HELP! xox mervi

Ps. I'm travelling to my hometown next week for a couple of days of relaxation, so I'm hoping to find some gems from the local thrift shops there. Keep your fingers crossed for me! :)
