1920s Swing Dance


I had blogged about 1920s fashion inspiration for the Great Gatsby themed swing dance I was planning on attending. Well, Sunday was the dance and this was my outfit! 


I always have a blast researching different fashion eras and learning about the hair and makeup of the time (thank you Youtube) and trying to recreate a look in my own way. I was also pretty delighted to pull everything I'm wearing from my own wardrobe and was flattered at all the compliments I received.


I love the loose description for 1920s makeup; pale face, dark eyes and red lips. Hrmmm, I can do that! I also solidified my belief that Siouxsie Sioux's makeup and (some) wardrobe was inspired at the 1920s and Egyptian Revival intermixed with punk and goth. 


We clean up pretty well! 

We didn't do any dancing as I'm not going to lie, I wasn't feeling well (again) and took it easy by hanging out at the bar. I have a doctor's appointment today, so I have a lot of questions that I'm hoping will get answered. I'm optimistic that it's a dietary issue as some other major factors have been ruled out. Positive thinking, positive thinking, POSITIVE THINKING!!! Hahahaha!!!

Thank you for reading, until next time!

  8. Endlessly positive thinking (and understanding), sweet dear.

    This outfit is, well, quite frankly, breathtaking! It is one of the most enchanting, alluring goth meets 1920s looks I've ever seen. Magnificent styling from waved hair to ankle strap shoe.
