Beautifully Foolish

week on Style Panel my fellow panelists and I take on the challenge of
subtle Great Gatsby dressing. The challenge: avoid looking like you are
attending a costume party!

Featured Items: Dress and cardigan: H&M | Shoes: Calvin Klein |
Bag: Aldo (old) | Sunglasses: Joe Freshv| Necklace and earrings: made by yours truly and soon coming to the Short Presents
Etsy Shoppe |

For my style panel contribution I decided to focus on accessories! I chose my long gold pearl drop necklace (which I made myself) and opted for a straight sillouette with my dress and my favorite pastel party cardi 🙂 all the things I love about the 1920s! 

To see my full response to the challenge along with my style advice head on over to Fashion Magazine, (link here) and see what myself along with the other style panelists are saying the 1920s trend. 

And lastly a good bun photo for good measure!

I couldn’t let you go without a good bun photo what do you take me for? a fool?

This challenge was pretty fun I love playing around with different styles. What are your thoughts about this trend? Love it or hate it? I’d love to hear about how you plan on channeling this trend (if you decide to) in the comments below or via twitter (tweet me @shortpresents) 

Happy Friday Blog Reader! Hope you have a beautifully foolish weekend!

    I just love what you pulled together here; it's not too literal and that bun is GREAT (of course you had to take a photo!). This challenge was the first one I sat out since I became a panelist because it was so far removed from my personal style I felt I couldn't make it work without looking costumey which was the point to not make it look that way. Great work making it modern!

      Awe thanks Steffi! You are a doll! I'm really glad you liked it. I didn't want to get to literal with it, but I was afraid I might be considered as not responding to the challenge. This was the best compromise I could come up with 🙂
