Roaring 20s

  What era fascinates you? As a lover of history it's hard for me to pinpoint one specific era that beats the rest, but I do have a strong affinity for the 1920s-30s era: the flapper style, the beautiful beaded dresses, the bob hair cut, the thrill (for some) of Prohibition and all that jazz. During a trip to NYC last summer I was able to indulge my love for the flapper look at the MET with their exhibit on American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity. The clothes really are on another level, the intricate details of the beading and the fit and style of the 1920s dresses recalls a period of elegance juxtaposed with a youthful revolution for fun and excitement. Undeniably, when Boardwalk Empire on HBO was announced I was a loyal watcher within seconds of seeing the promotion. And I've always wanted to participate in the annual 'Jazz-Age Lawn Party' on Governors Island
  So with my love for the 20s declared, you can see why I found these amazing pictures by the talented photographer Jamie from From Me to You, an instant favorite. The styling is impeccable, and the shoot really transforms a 21st century girl into a dazzling 20s stunner. Jamie's photographs are beautiful and the vintage flair is what I love most about her photographs.

As fortune would have it I also found a great fashion line Alexandra Grecco that does modern pieces with a vintage touch. Their delicate rompers and blouses definitely bespeaks of a flapper era. She also has a great blog that follows her in her travels and the ongoings of her fashion line.
