The roaring 20's..

A surprise birthday party with a 
"dress like the twenties" theme...
While I don't own a dropdown waist dress 
I figured a simple black slip dress could do 
the trick for posing as a lady from the 20's.
Black blue sheer slip dress Tiff Tiff - Vintage beaded bag
This one served its purpose, its about fifteen years old.
Fifteen. Never been worn for the last 7.
Black suede shoes Christian Siriano for Payless
Long gloves, a long strand of pearls, 
a feather headband and a French beaded 
vintage bag did the trick.

You totally pulled off that theme perfectly! How great that you held onto that dress and were able to pull it out for this.

Very nicely done - you're quite right that straight shifts were worn as well as the drop waists we're more familiar with. You look great xx

Very pretty. The long pearls make the period-look. And you're in good shape!
