This Unique Vintage dress is something I have always dreamed of, from the perfect teal colour to the design of this beaded dress, it really is a special addition to my wardrobe.
1920's Teal Beaded Flapper Dress - c/o Unique Vintage
Shoes - Target
Teal, turquoise, blue and green are some of my favourite colours to wear, so when I saw this dreamy teal beaded flapper dress I knew it would be perfect to kick off my Style Society posts for Unique Vintage. I am so excited and thankful for this amazing opportunity!
Beaded flapper dresses may seem quite extravagant, well I guess they are but I am always drawn towards them for the way they move, they way they feel and the fact that they are like wearing art. I am also looking forward to layering this dress with coats in winter and styling it differently. It was a hot day when these photos were taken and I was heating up with some dancing and found the dress to be nice and breathable despite the temperature.
For this particular style I am wearing size small which has a bit of extra room in the waist and is what I prefer when wearing 20's style clothing. This creates an authentic feel to the garment and allows comfort for movement, and of course dancing which is very important to me. The dress is sheer so if you are thinking about ordering one of these fabulous dresses be sure to grab a flapper slip from Unique Vintage and check out the rest of the 20's range on offer.
I always have to dance when I'm wearing a beaded flapper dress and so I filmed a short video to show just how magical the dress looks. I had quite a few people turn a corner to find some random girl dancing... I hope they enjoyed it haha.
Well I am off to New Zealand on Monday and will be away for just under a fortnight so I apologise now for not being able to read and comment on your blog posts and respond to you here. My Grandmother doesn't have an internet connection at her house though she has always wished me good luck with "internet venture" so I will be using wifi when I can + will be on a bit of a roadtrip the first week to see some more of my relatives. Be sure to follow me on Instagram (@gracefullyvintage) as I will be uploading photos there (thanks if you already are). I have plenty of scheduled blog posts, so it will seem like I haven't even left.
