When it comes to wedding planning, why not get inspired by the glamour of The Great Gatsby and opt for a 1920s opulent occasion? There's nothing better than Art Deco styling, glittering accessories and sparkly styling to make your day feel really special.  We simply love an event that involves vintage headpieces, blinging ball gowns and dapper looking chaps! Whether your attending as a guest or perhaps a baddass bridesmaid, these beauties will help you sparkle and shine bright on the big day!

  For the beautiful bride to be or bridesmaid there is a stylish selection of new in embellished flapper dresses , just screaming to be taken for a spin on the dance floor! Flapper girls certainly knew how to have fun, so embody their attitude and kick start the event with a jazzy number your guests can Charleston too! 


From the exquisite beading on our Silver Gatsby Dress to the tantalising tassels on our navy beaded number you'll certainly exude elegance and style. Finish off the look with some chic vintage accessories like our Silver Art Deco Clutch or our Gold Pearl Flapper Headband.

How Would You Pop The Question?

As some of you may be aware, yesterday was in fact  National Proposal Day! People from all across the country use this as an opportunity to propose or hint to their significant other that they are thinking along the lines of marriage bells! We thought we'd celebrate by rounding up our favourite ways to pop the question!

Wow an offer of macaroons and matrimony! What more could you ask for? We'd say this bodes well for a happy future together :).

Now this is certainly one way to get their attention and anyone else in the vicinity! We love the effort that has gone into this proposal plan.

Put a ring on it with the help of the trusty family pet! Overloading them with cuteness can only be a good thing...

Winning them round with sweets. We like! What a thoughtful touch.

Flourishing Fashions! Best Looks This Spring Season!




Feature: Kinarino.jp  


We adore Spring and all the flower power prints it brings! It is quite simply a immensely upbeat season and inherently the fashions seem to reflect this tremendously buoyant mood. The 70s boho spirit seems to live on in beautiful beatnik dresses, houses are decorated  from ceiling to floor in bunches of daffodils  and you can't look anywhere without spotting some floral embroidery adorning accessory. 


Styling




Feature: RMV SugarhillBoutique Faye Floral Midi Shirt DressElfin-dreams.tumblr.com

This striking floral midi shirt dress makes a fab feature to your Spring/Summer wardrobe  with its eye popping print and low-key, laid-back fit. Get yours here at: http://www.rockmyvintage.co.uk/dresses/new-in/sugarhill-boutique-faye-floral-midi-shirt-dress.htm .  We'd pair this with this stunning fairy-tale floral flick as it is one of our favourite make up looks to try for the upcoming warmer months. We think it'll create the ultimate sixties chick vibe and achieve a subtle yet striking effect that'll enhance your overall look!  





This beautiful blue floral maxi dress is a must have this season with its sexy side slit and gorgeous paisley print. For a flawless finish team this with our delicate flower necklace by Louche. The white shade will really pop and come into its own when contrasted against a navy blue backdrop.   


Accessorises



Feature: You Mean The World To Me & Feedpuzzle

Not only does the flower crown rule supreme for wedding season, it has inspired flower clusters in the form of  anklets now for those Bohemia brides amongst us. Another cool accessory to be seen for Spring are huge blooming baskets on bicycles! When the sun is shining get riding! Accessorising your bicycle with these decorative flower features creates a uber-cool vintage look. Go on...get those bikes out of the shed!

Full On Flapper Vs A Glint of Gatsby

We just can't get enough of flapper fashion so thought we'd share with you some cool styling tips and ideas to really get into the swing of things when it comes to 1920s style! It's always fun to really go all out and mimic the authentic art deco look but you can create the same glamour and elegance by simply popping on a tassel necklace or coveting geometric shaped accessories.  


Its fun to experiment and push the boundaries with your look but here we have simply pepped up a low key, stylish evening outfit with some glamorous accessories. The trick here is to choose one dramatic statement piece like the chevron clutch and choose items that compliment it. You can create a 20s look without going over the top and it looks great to mix  some Gatsby glamour with a modern contemporary outfit.



Here we have toyed with the idea of mixing old and new by recreating a flapper girl look with this stunning pink and white dress but have selected on trend colours and silhouettes. The bright fuchsia and orange hue bring this dress up to date, along with its figure hugging fit but the textures, crystals and embellishments reflect the Hollywood glamour of the 1920s.
