This outfit is inspired by the 1920s look. When I went to the hypermarket Globus i could not resist buying this hat that reminded me of 1920s cloche hats that were a typical headgear for this decade. I really liked the style of it and the black and white colour combination that will match so many things in my wardrobe. Inspired by the 1920s theme I chose to wear this dress by Pietro Filipi I found in a secondhand where I shopped quite a lot. I restyled the dress by putting its belt lower than usual on my hips which created the 1920s silhouette. See? It is really simple to travel through time in fashion just by putting the belt higher or lower.
I wore my favourite black leather pumps by Tamaris, this time their T-strap was really on point since this type of shoes were also worn by flappers.
My only accessory in this outfit is the wide art deco inspired bracelet I made of beads. At first I wanted to wear two strings of black beads on my neck with a knot on them but then I realized it would be too much so they stayed at home for next occassion.

  1. The dress is a perfect fit and the style really suits your shape and the belt position really works. I also love the hat, which looks great with your glasses, and the bracelet. And you're right - the shoes are spot on too. I think this might be one of my favourite looks on you - really amazing! Kx

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment. As for the heart-shaped sunnies - ignore those, I am using them as an anonymizing tool ;)

    2. Even if the glasses are far from authentic, I thought they added the most gorgeous touch with your cloche hat. I had another thought after I had commented, even though I reckoned your outfit was pretty much perfect. I know they are not everyone's cup of tea, but you could add seamed tights rather than plain sheer. I always think they add a further touch of elegance and they would would work perfectly with your T-bar shoes. Just a thought ! Kx

    3. Haha, I was actually thinking the same thing when I was looking at the pictures where I am looking over my shoulder - I should have worn the tights with the fake seam! I have them so it would not be a problem, I just forgot about them because I was in the morning rush when getting dressed.

    4. Great minds think alike! They are actually a real favourite for me - in fact, tights generally are one of my favourite items in any outfit and I probably wear seams once a week with my work outfits. It was exactly that photo that made me think of it. They would suit the shoes and you definitely have the calves for them! Next time you post in sheer tights, I'll look forward to scrolling down for the view from behind! Karen xx
