The Jazz Age

The 1920s is one of my favorite time periods, if not my absolute favorite. I love the art deco movement that was happening at the time... and the flapper clothing, silks, chiffons, beads, dropwaist dresses, and short curly cuts that most women were sporting.

My aunt gifted me with this rose pink tie dye romper and told me it was from the 20s... I was completely blown away and utterly overjoyed. It is one of the most beautiful pieces I own, so romantic, and perfect for the hot hot summer days that LA is experiencing currently.

I tried to play up the 20s factor by adding the jazz shoes that American Apparel sent me.

P.S. GO SEE INCEPTION.
Vintage '20s silk romper, American Apparel jazz shoes, Leviticus Chivalry necklace, Rackk and Ruin amethyst necklace, vintage crochet black bag, American Apparel lace leotard.

Anna Shapiro said...

love it!
although guessing by the fact that its from the twenties its most likely a teddy that was dyed later in its life
not that thats a bad thing haha :)

Kiki said...

This outfit is very suitable for the hot summer. Nice shoes!

Tie die.....and in a romper! What a wonderful combination!! :)

Meg! said...

That's such a cool romper! Although I bet the tie-dye happened later than the '20s, which is kind of a shame because it's such a cool piece. It still looks great though!

Loving seeing another fifteen year old blogger.
Although ten times more gorgeous than myself, and with far more clothing options in LA than in Vermont.

Mae Lu said...

That's wonderful if it's really from the 20's... really, really cool.

I'd kill to have something that vintage and airy.

We're experiencing a heatwave here in Detroit. 90's and humid. Ugh.

XXs,
Mae Lu, thereafterish.

Mallory said...

Wow, such a pretty dress! & it's from the 20's - that's really sweet.
I love the shoes you paired with it. They're perfect!
Great styling on this one all together.

s. said...

the twenties are, i think, my favourite period in fashion.
i don't know, there's something to be said for flapper charm, and jazz age gallivanting, you know?

we will go to London said...

wow, that dress looks fantastic!!

maja said...

Beautiful photos!! That dress is perfect ;)

Amandine said...

Cold water fiber reactive dyes (tie die) weren't introduced to the textile industry until the 1950s. Therefore the garment may be from the 1920s, but the tie die is certainly not.

Shelby said...

such an adorable outfit. im always suprised at how long vintage clothing has been able to last. guess they just don't make clothing like they use to - with quality!!

Danielle said...

Adorable!

wearing a piece of clothing from the 20's is pretty amazing when you think about it. don't know how to explain it really, that thought popped in my mind while I looking at these pictures..
I love how you combined it with the jazz shoes. it looks great altogether!

wowowow that is so beautiful!! I love the roaring twenties, definitely my favourite era. I have an obsession with it. Tie dying a romper is such a wonderful idea, this is absolutely killer and looks so nice and summery! I also love the jazz shoes :3

As beautiful as that romper is, there is no way on that that was made in the 1920's. As great it is to think that the 20's was this time of women experimenting, "most" women did not get their hair cut. Even for the 20's, this would be an EXTREMELY short romper and very few women would be showing this much skin. That was a very small number of women who were then alienated from society. And as much as the twenties were "roaring", they were also a time of deep despair as the country fought financial crisis and recovered from losing an entire generation of men. Please wake up.

The Stylish Wanderer said...

Im sorry, maybe I wasnt clear, the romper was actually used as undergarments, but Im wearing it as a romper. Of course they wouldnt have been out in public in this during that time.

Aubrey Delight said...

although your outfit is nice i'm sorry to say that that romper would not be from the 1920's. They did not really use tie dye back then and i would very much doubt that they would use it on a romper

Ploy Henderson said...

your photos look awesome, how do you get them like that, is it your camera or editing software? If its camera, what camera is it, and if its edited, what software did you use? Sorry so many questions

Aya Smith said...

Oh, you look as gorgeous as always :))

You know, I saw a commercial on TV today featuring a girl I swear is you! Tell me I'm wrong! LOL :)
