1920's Chic

So today I was working on my project for my A.P. Language class. I had to make a scrap book page on 1920's fads. I'm also currently reading a biography on Coco Chanel, so I'm completely in love with 1920's fashion right now. I love Coco Chanel's designs. She made "men" pieces feminine. I'm also a big fan of black and white. Its elegant, simple, and chic. Forever 21 has a lot of accessories that fit the 1920's theme. They have pearl necklaces and cloche hats. I really just want to put on a little black dress, a ton of pears, and a cute hat right now. I love Drew Barrymore's 1920's inspired look at the Grey Gardens Premiere. She's wearing an Alberta Ferretti dress with Fred Leighton jewels. The light colored veil is so feminine and girly, but its also mature and elegant. I think flappers, pearls, and all things 1920's need to come back with me!?!?

So here are some of my favorite Coco Chanel quotes: (
"In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different."
"A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous."
"Fashion fades, only style remains the same."

  3. I went to journalism camp at Columbia, but it was with my journalism team from high school! Hope that helps! ox

  4. That last quote has always been one of my very favorites. Also love how that era perfectly combined sweet and flirty with strong and powerful.
