I am loving this casual yet chic two-piece summer ensemble from the 1940s. Makes me wish I was having a frolicking picnic on the shore.

I’m loving these photos of contemporary Teddy Girls that appeared in Next about three years ago. I wish I could take a look all the images from this badass photoshoot! [VIA]


My New Flapper Hair

Well, I did it! This weekend I had my hair cut into a bob… and I am absolutely in love with my new hairdo. It’s a nice change.

After I left the salon, I picked out some new vintage eyeglass frames to match my new ‘do. I will show you guys when they come back in a few weeks with my prescription in them.

Well, it’s the middle of summer, which means it’s time for me to daydream about shorter hair again. I stumbled across these lovely photos the other day, and although I’m a little scared (I’ve had really long hair for years), I think I might just go for it! I really love the length and style of the bob on this gorgeous lass.

Introducing Bijou Ties + A Giveaway

July 16, 2013

Bijou Ties by Flapper Girl

I’m pleased as punch to announce that my line of ladies pin-on bow ties—or Bijou Ties, as I’m lovingly calling them—are now available in the Flapper Girl Shop. Each Bijou Tie has a standard bar pin secured to its back, which allows you to pin your bow anywhere you’d like to any garment you choose. They are adorable on collared shirts and dresses (as pictured above) but also look great as a lovely bow brooch that can be worn on dresses, cardigans, jackets, sweaters, etc.

I’ve also whipped up a special limited edition batch of Bijou Ties that I’m giving away. Three lucky winners will each receive one of these ties. I wanted it to be a fun surprise for whoever wins, so the design will remain a mystery—but I’ll give you a hint that the design is very retro and the colorway features a lovely robin’s egg blue. If you you’d like a chance to win please enter the giveaway on Rafflecopter.

Thank you to everyone for your love and support! You guys are the best ♥
