fancy dress costume.. 1920s flapper


It was one of my friends 18th birthday party on Friday and she had a pink themed fancy dress party which was also to raise money for breast cancer care. I originally wanted to dress up as a pink cupcake but the outfit had sold out in every fancy dress shop I tried so I decided to go as a flapper, I was so unsure about the outfit at first because it seemed so short and I hardly ever wear short dresses or skirts but one I was all ready and it felt OK and I wore a pair of skin colour tights so I felt more covered up.

The dress, gloves and headband are from a local fancy dress shop but I'll pop a link at the bottom of a couple of fancy dress shops that stock it.
The bracelets are from Primark and the necklace is florence and fred from Tesco.

make up and hair

I choose to go for a smokey eye but keeping it just on my top lid a bright pink lip and a pink blush. I was going to try and recreate a 20s make up look but didn't want to look to dramatic as the dress was really the statement.
