shake a tailfeather: the results

well.
i didn't get a new flapper dress. i hit up the closest vintage store, and their "vintage" flapper dresses were clearly costumes marked up at ridiculous prices. so i just bought some gloves and a headband and went digging in my own room for other accessories. the good old college way!

wow i love your blog, the graphic design is amazing. read down below that you're doing harvard's summer program in Paris.. i could not be more jealous, i fell in love when i visited there last summer! :)

the diy flapper outfits turned out much better than anything you could have purchased!

If those pictures were in black and white I'd totally believe that they were from the '20s.

love, love, love!

i really wanted my high school to have a 1920's gatsby-esque prom but it is comprised of idiots and so the theme is, big shocker, "saturday night fever". hence i will not be in attendance. :D
