Great Gatsby Bridal Style Inspiration {Socialite}

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Flappers may have had an edgy, bold aesthetic, but young 1920s socialites were the epitome of polished, shimmering style.

Dubbed “Bright Young Things” by the press of the day, these ladies and gentlemen threw lavish, fancy dress parties, elaborate midnight scavenger hunts, extravagant costume balls, and partly inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald to write The Great Gatsby.

All the gorgeous clothes, decadent jewelry, and incredible parties are brought to life in the new Gatsby movie, and we can’t wait to see it again!

Gild your Art Deco-inspired wedding day ensemble with 1920s socialite panache starting with The Dress. Choose a gown influenced by the slinky silhouettes of the day with off-the-charts detail. Think layers of lace, beading, crystals and embroidery – the more luxe, the better. Don’t forget, a fabulous fur wrap is a must! Keep hair and makeup sophisticated, but always glamorous.

Great Gatsby Bridal Style Inspiration {Flapper}

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

The Great Gatsby premieres this weekend!

1920s style is already influencing fashion, and, when brought to life on screen, it’s sure to inspire.

In honor of the era of Jazz, Flappers, Art Deco, Prohibition, and a major shift in women’s fashion, we’re sharing Gatsby-inspired bridal style in a two-part post, starting with Flappers!

World War I was a catalyst that ushered women of the time out of restrictive Victorian customs. Shedding corsets, gowns, long hair, and prim ways, many emerged as Flappers.

They drove cars, rode bicycles, cut their hair in bobs, dyed it black. Wore bright lipstick and rouge, sported short dresses. Partied at and smuggled liquor to speakeasies. Danced the night away doing the Charleston and the Shimmy!

So, you can see why a Flapper’s bold style is rich inspiration for a bride whose modern aesthetic leans toward edgy.

Infuse the Flapper’s audacious spirit into your wedding day look beginning with a bright makeup palette, and, of course, a bridal ‘do influenced by the era’s popular Marcel wave. Go short with a fabulous, fringed gown, or stay long and choose a daring, sophisticated frock made for dancing.

Now for the best part – jewelry and hair accessories. In a nod to our muse’s iconic pearl necklace, work with a mix of crystals and pearls…and lots of them! Layer glittering CZ and pearl bracelets, don gorgeous Art Deco chandelier earrings, then top it all off with a feather fascinator or striking double headband finished with a sparkling broach.

Roaring 20’s Art Deco Wedding {Inspiration}

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

We’re thrilled to report that between Boardwalk Empire and the upcoming release of a new The Great Gatsby movie, fabulous 1920s style has come roaring back. After all, any era in which jewels, feathers, flowers, beading and fringe are de rigueur is a wonderful thing, especially when it comes to weddings. Lately, lots of women have been asking for bridal accessories inspired by the age or flappers, Art Deco and Art Nouveau, so we thought we’d share the Twenties inspiration below.

Go glam with a bridal gown whose silhouette is spotlight ready, and slip on some glittering shoes. Pair the look with Art Deco bridal jewelry and a vintage-inspired bridal cap or crystal-encrusted comb and you’ll be ready dance to the Charleston all night.

Echo feminine, flapper style with a beaded bridal gown and shoes that reflect an Art Deco design sensibility. Accented with a luxe bridal headband shimmering with crystals and silk flowers or a crystal hair accessory and a post-wedding speakeasy stop is a must.
