Most flapper style dresses are shift style, long and straight. My curvy girl body and hips look terrible in that type of dress. If I get the dress large enough to fit my lower half, my waist and boobs are swimming and I look twenty pounds heavier. I definitely don't need that. A dress that has a 20's feel but has a waist will work much better. It will be much more flattering on me. If I decide not to spend money on a dress, I already have a cute black dress that might work. I could also hit my local thrift stores to find an inexpensive dress and add some crystals or fringe.
Luckily for me, I love art deco style jewelry. I have some fantastic long necklaces including one with a tassel and I own this exact bracelet and similar earrings. A few years ago, I purchased long, black, satin gloves for a Halloween costume. Sitting in my overflowing shoe collection, I have several pairs of t-strap heels that will work with this dress or any dress that I select.
My plan is to have a great costume without spending lots of money. I'll be creating a DIY headband using a scarf or ribbon and some brooches I already own. My makeup will be red lips and a smokey eye and my hair will likely be in tight curls or finger waves.
I'm excited for the party and I'm sure we'll have a blast. I'm also working on our drinks and appetizers. Our hostess and my friend, Denise will be making the yummy dinner and our friend Carrie will be making a decadent dessert.
I've always been fascinated by the roaring 20's culture and style. I can't wait for the party!
