Early 1920s Ensemble & Nataya Blouse

Flashback Summer: Early 1920s Ensemble Nataya blouse

The early 1920s is one of those periods that has some really, really lovely fashions but very little of it is being reproduced.  I especially love these few years in fashion because they begin to embody the comfortable, flowy styles the 1920s are known for, but they're often done in ways that are friendlier to a wider variety of body types.  Many early 1920s dresses have longer lengths, layered styles, and a defined waistline at or right below the natural waist.

(For some reason my hair looked really red in these photos.  It's not; I didn't dye it.  I don't know what happened, haha!)
While I absolutely love 1920s party dresses, I can't wear them every day!  I do have to wear some more hardy, casual clothing for my daytime, regular-life activities.  I was so pleased to discover the House of Recollections Etsy shop when I was searching for such pieces!

Flashback Summer: Gatsbylady Isobel Petite Dress review - 1920s party

A 1920s beaded party dress is ALWAYS welcome in my closet.  They're decadent, they're comfortable, they're fabulous.  However, as a short person I've had trouble finding gowns that fit well.  I usually have to alter the straps and make them shorter, and the shaping can be a bit off at times.  Not so with this dress!

Flashback Summer: Intercultural Vintage fashion - Nassau's Mademoiselle dress - khanga

What a mystery this dress is!  Like, seriously, this garment is a mish-mosh of cultures from all over the world, and the more I have researched the crazier this mystery has become.

Flashback Summer: Lovely Lounging - 1930s Charmeuse Gown

Many of us have incredible outdoor wardrobes, but we haven't built up our indoor wardrobes as much.  Perhaps because not many people see it, or it's not a priority for the budget.  But I'm here to tell you... pretty loungewear is SOOOO worth it!
