A couple of week’s ago, Tickled Pink Fancy Dress
got in touch to see if I wanted to take part in their fancy dress challenge. It’s me, so of course I couldn’t say no
! I love
any excuse to dress up, especially if it’s fancy dress attire!
So I had a good browse over the website and chose my favourite outfit, which is this gorgeous 1920’s inspired Fever Flapper Dress
! For those of you who don’t know, I adore the 1920’s, I actually styled one of my textile’s coursework’s around that roaring time!
This gorgeous black and purple flapper dress
also come’s complete with a sequined headband with a massive
feather on it(love)
which I think really helps to complete the look! I styled my costume simply with black tights, black heels and a purple and grey beaded necklace that I found in my mum’s spare room!
As for my hair, long hair in the 20’s wasn’t really a “thing”, but I thought i’d still leave mine down and just curl/wave it a little, jazzy yeah?
Obviously, during shooting these photos I had to have a bit of a swishy-swoosh because.. just look at how fun it is! (Read; please appreciate this gif I made as it took a really long time to make it and it was really frustrating, almost to the point of crying, thx)
As for the sizing, I ordered a medium (advertised as a UK dress size 12-14) and it fits really comfortably. I’m a UK 8/10 and I really think this dress would fit anyone in those four sizes as it’s lose fitting and the material is stretchy.
I absolutely adore this costume and now I wish I had a party to wear it to! (hint hint, if you’re having one, hit a girl up) If you are headed to a fancy dress New Year’s party this year, or any other fancy dress party, then why not check out Tickled Pink Fancy Dress. You can bag yourself 15% OFF your order by using the code SANTA15, woohoo!
What do you think of my costume? Will you be dressing up any time soon? Let me know!
