20s/30s Palazzo Pants and Fingerwaves

Flashback Summer: 1930s Palazzo Pants and Fingerwaves

Recently, I acquired some wave clips from a flea market and decided to try my hand at fingerwaves for the first time!  Although, granted, they didn't turn out as a stellar example, they do resemble fingerwaves, and that's a successful first try in my book!

I wore them with a late 20s/early 30s look inspired by a picture I saw of an Italian actress/model from the 30s.  She's, you know, gorgeous, and has on a simple white blouse, large sunhat, and palazzo pants.  But for the life of me, I can't find it anywhere or remember her name!  If anyone has an idea of what I'm talking about, let me know!

Edit:  I FOUND IT!  It's actually Renee Perle, and I was wrong; she's Romanian.  Here's the picture I was referencing:

Anyway.... It's such a comfy, easy look, and I do love the swishing sound of the pants.  It makes trousers feel much more glamorous!

  5. Simply stunning! Your waves look terrific, and this whole outfit is amazing! I really think that the 30s suit you to a tee, dear gal. I know that if I had your fabulous, slender figure I'd rock that decade something fierce!

    Have a beautiful, fun filled weekend, honey!!!

    1. Well thanks, Jessica! I really love the 30s, but it's hard to find that sort of style around. I'm working on it though, and hopefully I'll be able to incorporate more into my wardrobe!
