I love all these 1920s goodness! Ever since I saw the Chanel movie, I've been really interested in 1920s images lately.

I used to have a Louise Brooks hairdo when i was 17, those were the days.

Sam said...

Oooh - Dearest Gabbi! Totally flattered and blushing madly!! Thank you so much - you've put a spring in my step today!! The photos you have here are so wonderful - I would die to look that glam! ...and the embroidery! It's perfection as always from the master blogger! You and George stay cool. XX

Elizabeth Marie said...

Ohhh fabulous post Gabbi...I wish I could spend some time in the 20's! How fun! XO

Kelley Anne said...

Oh these are wonderful! I love the first and last photos especially and wish I could sport a slick bob like that:) They're so decadently glamorous, aren't they?

By the way, thanks for the wonderful comment! I found a pair of white oxfords on etsy last night in my size that are pretty close to the one in the pic, but am still on the hunt for a tan pair. Thanks for the Zappos tip...I'm going to keep regularly looking there:)

Keith said...

Wow! Those are incredible. I really enjoyed them all. I love the 1920's.

Beautiful post! Lovely blog!

TERI REES WANG said...

Love that Pixie-bob cut when I see done right. Fine, straight hair, with a little nose and crisp jawline.
It is hard to find.

Though I have spied it lately on a few tiny girls playing at the park.
The ones who are fashionably fun! ;P

Savvy Mode SG said...

these are great. now i want to have a short bob again and wear a flapper dress. : )

Gabbi said...

~ I love Clara! Thank you Mondo… :)

~ Glad the sleep is back to normal Laura. I hate it when that happens… I’m glad the vino didn’t mess it up. I just need an excuse to drink it maybe?♥

~ Thank you Christina and Drollgirl! ♥ Congratulations on being featured on the weekly magazine again… that’ really cool! :)

~ Thank you Lady Thirty and Kristy, hope you’re both having a lovely week! ♥xo

~ I really need to see the Chanel films Anna, in my small obsessive search for all things 1920’s I kept reading about her. So influential.

~ Thank you so much dearest CC♥♥ Hope you’re having a wonderful week… I love your newest giveaway and post. Your love of bustiers is contagious!

~ That’s always been my dream hair dear Mint, but have horrible wavy hair and it never looked right (when I had it short).

~ I’m such a fan of your work Sam, I’m glad you don’t mind me putting your illustrations up. They fall so perfectly in with my inspirations and obsessions for beautiful things. Kisses from George! (You should see him pant in the heat… sad but funny) :) ♥

~ Thank you so much Elizabeth! Hope your week is going swell…♥

~ Your new shoes sound awesome Kelley, I can’t wait to see them! I don’t think I’ve ever seen white oxfords… they sound extremely neat. I really need some new ones too, but boring me will probably end up with black. Thank you and hope the week it going really well. ♥xo

~ Thank you Caroline and Keith♥

~ Me too dear CH :) Thank you!!

~ Thank you Chelsea and I completely agree dear Amelia. My dream hair…

~ She is isn’t she Velo♥ Thank you!

~ Thank you dearest Mary. I love your new ice cream cone creations. Perfect for summer.♥xo

~ Thank you very much dear Alexandra, Michelle and Beauty file! Hope you’re all having a lovely week. ♥♥♥

~ Sam is fantastic isn’t she! Thank you dear Harriet... ♥ I agree on Joan and Louise, they would’ve been fast friends. :)

~ Such a great style isn’t it Teri? It’s been my dream hair for as long as I can remember but have really wavy hair. :) Hope you’re having a great week. Thank you♥

~ Me too, thank you dear Savvy.♥xo

~ I’m honored Maddie! I loved your interview on Diana’s blog and your work is unbelievable… expect lots of visit and comments from me :)

~ Merci Mademoiselle Frou-Frou! I love your giveaway on CC’s blog and the lingerie in your site is gorgeous… wishing you a wonderful rest of the week! ♥♥

~ I have a hard time getting things the way I like them Diana… thanks for not thinking I’m crazy for changing it so often! ♥ Love your newest interview post of Maddie. Her work is amazing!

Hi Gabbi,
I always love your blog templates. Do you do the html code yourself? I'm trying to give my blog a little makeover (just changing sizes and minor details), but I'm completely lost! I know I've changed it before, but I can't remember how I did it, lol.
So I was wondering if you could help me? Your content size is just what I want. Any chance you'd share your code with me, or just show me what I should do? I hope it's no trouble.
My email: anna.paramita@gmail.com

Let's build a time machine and go back to the 20s! We can throw a Gatsby-esque party and bring a bunch of clothes and items back to the future with us! :)
