The Flapper Fad

The 1920’s have made a roaring comeback and they are inspiring movies, fashion and everything in between. I recently attended a “Great Gatsby” themed event and was impressed with the creativity some women put into their outfits.  In particular, I was enchanted with the headpieces. You can buy pieces online but there’s also the option of doing it yourself. It’s great because you create an original accessory that is guaranteed to be one of a kind. I would love to see headpieces make a comeback in everyday fashion.

My favorite part of 1920’s flapper dresses is the delicate detailing. The time and originality that goes into each sequins and bead is impressive. The hand stitching is beautifully done and I used that as inspiration for the illustration.

Girl on Fire

I love a good action film. The speed and intensity that the film rolls through the story line always captures me. I’m late watching it but I finally got a chance to see Catching Fire and I loved it. I was a fan of the books and I’m glad that the movie lived up to my expectations.

I created my own version of a “Girl on Fire” dress that you could wear to a formal event and capture a little bit of Katniss Everdine.
