Spring Trend 2011--The Roaring 20s and Prada

19 April 2011
It seems these pesky headaches are gone for a while--they are just sitting there on the edge-- now so I am in a blog posting mood. I am starting today off with a Spring trend from an era that I love for all of its rebellion and freedom, great music and style; the roaring 20s. 

This was the first women's revolution decade, where they gave up corsets for men's wear and flowing locks for cropped hair and moved away from barely there makeup to all out smokey and bordeauxed lip glamour! The 20s and 30s rocked.

I created this inspiration because of some fabulous Prada shoes I saw. I mean I know I cannot afford them but who cares, they are beautiful.  I wanted to use this season's love of mixing patterns and paired the green/black striped Mary Janes with a multi-colored animal print jacket. So enjoy my take on the 20s.
