Etsy Finds: Speakeasy Inspiration

 

 

Seeing as I have a certain super secret event to attend (ok, not really, since I’m posting this on my blog, but thats what we’re supposed to pretend. Didn’t you read the title? It says speakeasy – just play along with me), I may be forced to do a little vintage shopping in the near future..

 

Etsy, anyone?

 

Vintage 1920s pearl necklace, from Venust

20s style jazz heel, from rowdyrunts

Beaded flapper cocktail hat, from lilyladyblue

Pillbox hat, from dhandf

 

Cocktail dress from fatrabbit1

 

Ok, so this dress is from the 80s (most flapper dresses I could find were), and it shows, but I like it.

 

I should have more dress-up parties in my life. And drink cocktails out of teacups more often.

    There aren’t enough opportunities to get really dressed up as an adult. Will you take pictures?

    Ah, I love dressing up…wish I could do it more. Whatever you’re doing looks like so much fun! You have exceptional taste my dear, and I’m in love with those pearls {well, any pearls really, but those are so beautiful.}.

    Thanks for linking up again!

    LOVE IT ALL! I literally just spent like 5 hours browsing on etsy today. It’s so easy to get lost on the website… I definitely say GO FOR IT. You never know when a good ol flapper-esque dress will come in handy! :)

    Love your speakeasy inspiration! The theme for my engagement party revolved around speakeasies, black and white and lots of pearls. That really makes a party fun!

    If you have a speakeasy party I am so there. A flapper is my dream Halloween costume, and I would love an excuse to wear it elsewhere.
