My friend Jonathan invited me to his 30th birthday party. He wanted to leave his OWN roaring 20’s in style and asked everyone to come dressed up for the occasion. What a great opportunity to play dress up and put on a made-by-me gown from my favorite era!
Yay! I had everything – Dress, shoes, stockings, gloves, hand bag and wrap. But the truth is, I didn’t really want to wear a wrap. I wanted something a little more glamorous. So why not turn my metallic gold organza wrap into something more special? I could throw it together in a couple of days, right? So I did. It’s not 100% accurate to the era and time, but I think it evokes the glamour of the era (and my inspiration photo – see below) and went perfectly with my dress already (see this post for more info about the dress)
Here is the finished look. I am happy with the way it turned out. It was created from a metallic organza wrap that I owned already, and a vintage white fox collar that was purchased online. The stitching was done entirely by hand and the collar is removable.
