Monday Morning Inspiration

By now, the entire world knows that "The Artist" won Best Motion Picture at the Academy Awards last night. I saw the movie on Saturday, and I must say that I absolutely loved it, but then again, I adore silent movies. In August, The Silent Film Society of Chicago hosts a festival of an entire month of silent movies. They even bring in an organist to play along with the movie just as it was originally done.
So, this morning to celebrate the win, I found some wonderful dresses that have almost stepped out of the past, but are straight from the current edition of Vogue.        
Alberta Ferretti's flapper inspired confection. Check out the long beaded earrings the model on the left is wearing. Wow!

Gucci's flapper dress. What fun it would be to twirl around on the dance floor is this little dress!
A nod to the 20's from Alexander McQueen.
A lovely little day dress from Carolina herrera.
Pictured above, a beaded flapper bag from Nine West.
From the Ralph Lauren collection, a dream of a dress.
A beaded silk-tulle dress from Alberta Ferretti.
Beaded silk top and fringed skirt from Etro.

Embroidered chiffon dress from Bottega Veneta.
A spectacular embroidered coat and dress from Carolina Herrera.
Have a wonderful week!

  1. Fun dresses! I remember in the 80s (?) when earrings that hit the shoulders became popular. They were called "shoulder dusters". But those earrings in the first pic are nipple dusters!!
